    According to a translation of a Semiconductor Industry News report, Samsung will be the ones who will be manufacturing the CPU for the PlayStation Vita. The source also confirms earlier reports that the chip will be produced using a 45 nano-meter process, the same which is used in the Slim/S models of the PS3 and Xbox 360.[/p]

    No offense, but I sorta expected this (no idea why... WAIT, it's still not confirmed sorry)

    Anyway Samsung is a great manufacturer. (I really like their LED TVs)
    Definitely it will do the Vita well.

    the not-so-cool thing about now a days gadgets is that iphone 6 ou 7 will be more powerfull than this...

    i used to like those thimes when every console released was THE BOMB and used to took time to a similar gadget archieve such powerfullness.

    AND I MUST SAY: whatta hell, its horrible to play on iphone and similar gadgets. the games are boryng, the game play is ridiculous bad and the controlls are EXTREMELY HORRIBLE!!!!

    that because the mobile industry is evolving
    what for you is horrible for others is awesome
    a lot of people are casual gamers the idea of "ideal" game is not metroid or uncharted just fruit ninja and they want it in glorious hd ,thats why the consoles are not the one that introduce the top of hardware wich for me is something cool as the "older" hardware becomes cheaper and you can bay a console for like 170$ instead of 600$ of a iphone or similar

    great!

    but let's be honests... how can LG CEO say that the smartphones will kill psvita and 3ds? oh my gosh... these casual gamers dont know what gaming mean... >.<

    for me, gaming isnt graphics of corcy... gaming is quality, like mario and zelda series.

    It can't kill the 3DS and Vita because it's not even a gaming device. Same for the iphone/iTouch, they're not gaming devices. They're just devices that can do gaming as an extra, while the 3DS and Vita are gaming device that can do other things as extra.

    Indeed, and ever tried playing an actual game, like an RPG, on a touchscreen only? I want/need real buttons to play those games, hate the touchscreen buttons.

    is it common for samsung to make the chips?
    if u ask me, samsung makes products at lower costs so i believe this was a move to reduce costs.

    No big surprise, since Samsung also manifactures the Apple A5, and the PSVita is just using a slightly more powerful version of that (4 cores instead of 2).

    Like how IBM manufactured the processor in the Wii? And AMD manufactured the GPU?
