I've owned a Vita for about a month now so I think that's a sufficent amount of time for me to get acquainted with the device. There is no blog system so I've detailed my thoughts below... Hardware-wise, the system is nice. It features some of the most powerful mobile parts available today, features dual analog-sticks and has a functional D-Pad. I'm not head over heels over the OLED screen, though. While I do like the fact that colours pop on the display, I don't like the black smudges that appear whenever a dark scene is shown on the screen. The game library isn't very good and has a shitload of ports. And sadly, there are hardly any notable upcoming games. But I didn't buy this game for Vita games but rather to play PSP games mostly so that isn't of major concern to me. I'm a bit iffy on the OS. While it is definitely functional, the menu just comes across as cluttered and messy. The fact that there are no folders to organize your games most definitely contributes to that messy feel. The lack of anti-aliasing, however minor a concern, still irks me a bit too. The fact that you can't multitask a game with the internet-browser is also a pretty big issue. I mean, for fucks sake, the 3DS already has that functionality. It kind of defeats the purpose of an internet browser on a gaming console if you can't use it while playing games. Online functionality is leagues better than what I've seen on the 3DS. An account system, a decent storefront and proper messaging (I love you Swapnote but it's no proper IM system) are all welcome features. In terms of extra functionality, I'm satisfied. The Youtube app works well (although I wish we could navigate channels), Netflix is fine, the Twitter app is decent...I could go on. I particularly like the video-playing capabilities. It plays pretty much anything I throw at it (and now with fw. 2.00, 1080p videos). Thanks to the size of the system, it's pretty much replaced my 10.1" tablet for watching shows in bed. Visually, I'm not very impressed. Uncharted: Golden Abyss is a jaggy-fest with shitty textures and a sub-native resolution to top it off. Street Fighter x Tekken has a massive visual downgrade from the console versions (most notably in Chun Li's thighs!). Gravity Rush has a great art-style but certainly didn't "wow" me graphically. If I had to sum up the system's capabilities, it's roughly an Xbox with better shaders and slightly better polygon pushing power. Certainly not a portable PS3 and not the large gap over the 3DS that I expected. Overall I'm satisfied. It's not the god-tier device that I was led to believe by some but it's still a pretty damn solid piece of hardware.
