[EG]Digital Foundry vs PlayStation Vita

post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 
Quote:
After an extended hands-on period with two Vita units, this Digital Foundry hardware review dissects Sony's new offering, our aim being to answer all the questions you may have about the new machine: how does it look, how does it feel, what can it do and how do the games play? And with Vita priced at £230 - more expensive than the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 but a relative snip compared to the iPad - does the package offer enough to justify the asking price?

AMAZING
I must have this thing ~now~.
That battery life is double what I and most people have been expecting. Playing Uncharted no less.

And Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3? Holy hell!!
60FPS, vsync, full 960 x 544 rendered resolution, 3D models levels and animations pulled from the original game. Save for some alpha blending and static background sprites, what they're saying is close to a 1:1 port of the game basically. ~Unheard of~

I'd import it for $500 right now had I not spent so much money on gifts for everyone else this holiday. This thing is way better than I expected.

I figured with maximum power saving yeah.

But not average usage. I had the Vita pegged for 3.7-8 hours not 4.1.
Thats fantastic for what its worth!

Engadget had, I think, 5 hours with Uncharted 3 for 1/2 and 1/2 playing videos with network off. Which is right up my alley personally for normal use. I'll never put a podcast or movie on my iPhone or iPad again.

I think the battery life is extremely respectable tbh. It mantains just about the same size of the PSP Slim, adds in 2 analog sticks, 2 touch panels, A bigger OLED screen, has a wwaaaayyyy more powerful processor and Graphics chip and it still mantains about the same battery life as the 3DS with worse graphics in 3D mode (nth against the 3DS, I own one, but its a fact).

I already have money set aside for this baby :3
Wifi Vita with Escape Plan, Uncharted, Gravity Rush, Everybody's Golf. The trip on the subway will never be the same again.
