Yes, that was me a mere 7 days ago. That tweet attracted some attention (putting it mildly) and as a result I was offered the opportunity to test drive a PlayStation Vita of my own – provided I agree to give it a fair shake.
I think I can do that.
So here’s mine in all its glory, complete with a subscription to PlayStation Plus meant to ensure that I don’t run out of games to play. And speaking of PlayStation Plus, if you buy a 1-year subscription to the service before March 4th, 2013 you get 3 months free.
I also received a handful of app recommendations, just in case I want to try out some of the Vita’s non-gaming functionality, like Twitter and Facebook and Netflix.
What will the verdict be? Time will tell.
So far I like the hardware quite a bit, and there’s obviously no comparison between gaming with physical controls vs. gaming using only a touchscreen like on my iPad mini.
As for the rest, I’ll let you know once I’ve conquered the crap out of WipEout 2048.
