PS Vita is Sony’s next-generation portable entertainment system which enables a revolutionary combination of gaming and social connectivity.  “By blurring the lines between interactive entertainment and reality, our goal was to design a device that offered a revolutionary combination of rich gaming capabilities and social connectivity, bringing users closer to each other and closer to their gaming experiences wherever they are” Sony said in a statement.


The PlayStation Vita will launch worldwide at the end of 2011.  The device incorporates a 5-inch multi-touch organic light emitting diode (OLED) as the front display and a multi-touch pad on the rear.

      Ang mura nyan chong para k lang bumili ng psp pero di ako naniniwala ganyan kmura yan maybe it will range to 25 to 3O thousand pesos para kang may bitbit n ipad touch or tablet!

  9. @Michael : and it shows; new console games traditionally sell for $59.99. But yeah Im hoping they will sell for $39.99. I hope they show how there selling the retail games for the PSV during the TGS. Also the systems stats like what’s the internal storage capacity.

  10. I loved my psp for movies and games, this looks to be really innovative with 6 axis and multi touch , OLED screen is a plus for darker blacks. Sony usually sells hardware at a loss and makes up the money in raising the price of games. hopefully games are not 69.00 $. not that I ever buy new releases
