A very impressive handheld, a decent bundle at a very reasonable price,
This review is from: Sony PS Vita WiFi Console with 10 game Mega Pack on 8GB Memory Card (PlayStation Vita) (Console)
Like many other gamers I've been on the fence about the Vita for some time, impressed by what I had seen and heard about it but concerned by the price, the price of the storage cards and initially with the available library.
Over time the flow of games has helped to greatly reduce concerns about the library and this excellent bundle has now addressed the first two. For a lot less than the console previously cost they are now throwing in an 8 gig storage card and ten games (via a download code, so you can choose which you want) in the bargain. The games aren't all amazing but they do include the excellent LBP Vita, Wipeout 2048 and Motorstorm RC; these three games in themselves add some serious value to this bundle.
One of the first things I have done having got the vita is to reactivate my Playstation plus subscription. I've been adding Vita games to my list over time when a member and now have access to them all on day one. I'd highly, recommend anyone with plus to grab the vita games even if you don't have the console yet, get them ready in case you get it one day.
The console itself is a really impressive piece of kit. It's powerful and capable of very impressive graphics, outstanding for a mobile device. LBP looks absolutely lovely and anyone wowed by it on PS3 is likely to find themselves bowled over again by this one. The OLED screen is large and beautiful, very impressive. Bright and vivid and very easy on the eyes. The screen is a touch screen and is slick and responsive, standing up well next to the ipad I regularly use.
This package includes the wifi model of the vita rather than the 3G version. For me this is absolutely fine, allowing me to connect and download what I need when on a network and then play on they go. The number of wifi access points around now means it's not an issue at all for me,
The console comes safely packaged without excessive packaging and no overuse of plastic. Easy to get to and not too much waste. The package includes console, charger, memory card and download code.
Overall this is an excellent package and a very good value way to get your hands on a portable that Sony seem to have designed with the gamer 100% in mind. With that in mind, and the pending ability to use this for ps4 remote play I think this is an ideal time to consider the Vita. An impressive console.
