Playstation Vita:New Mobile Gaming Device

Sony has announced their newest handheld platform the Playstation Vita. The Vita will have many new exciting features that I cannot wait to try out.

Some of the new things they are incorporating are front and rear mounted cameras which use the new Augmented Reality technology which brings your physical world into the PlayStation world.

A 5 inch front multitouch OLED screen promises to bring a rich cinematic feel to both games and movies. Plus it has built in GPS capability,electronic compass,  bluetooth, along with Wifi location service support.

As far as controlling the Vita goes, it’s new rear touch pad, dual joysticks, and six axis controls will usher in a whole new portable gaming experience.

It looks like games will be downloaded onto memory cards. Sources say the Vita will come equipped with 512mb of ram and an additional 128mb dedicated to video

As a FPS fan I welcome the dual joysticks. I think it will give the Vita a natural feel, one that true Sony fans will appreciate.  I’m still trying to figure out the best use of the rear touch pad but I’m sure game developers are excited about the possibilities it opens. Another option I would like to see is some sort of phone ap built in. Sony makes the best gaming consoles hands down but in today’s world of smart phones and free aps, some way of texting or making calls is in my opinion a necessity.

There will be two models available. Wifi only and 3g + Wifi. Base price of the Wifi will be $249 with the 3g model slightly higher priced at $299. Service for the 3g model will be provided by AT&T.

All in all I’m excited for this new system.

Now what do I do with my PSP?

The Vita’s release date will be sometime in 2012.

New Fat Princess DLC

New PS3 DLC has been announced for Fat Princess at PAX 2009. Titan Studios has announced that “New Pork” a new map for everyone’s favorite game about overfeeding a princess. This new map is city based and will give you new strategies to win such as sewer shortcuts and defending your princess from the rooftops. Titan studios says that New Pork is just the beginning in DLC for Fat Princess.

God Of War Collection!

Awhile ago Sony did a survey asking us what we would like to see celebrating  the release of God of War 3.  They had choices like a Collectors edition, A special behind the scenes lookgod-of-war at God Of War 3, and things like that but what really got people excited was a God of War Collection. Well one has been announced and it includes God Of War and God Of War 2 all on one disc . Now the really good thing about this is that it is for PS3so you don’t have to worry about backwards compatibility. The games will be remastered have 60 frames per second game play, 720p graphics, and it will also have Playstation Network Trophy support. The collection is said to release this holiday season and i am very excited for it!
