PSP Vita or PSP Comparison

Sony has just announced its new handheld gaming system called PSP Vita. It’s actually a significant revamp of the company’s handheld legacy that began with the PSP and has evolved, until recently, through five largely similar models since its 2004 debut.

Lets take a look what the new PSP Vita has to offer compared to the previous PSP

The Vita looks identicals to the previous versions of psp except for its size. the old PSP was 6.7in x 2.7 in, whereas the PSP Vita is 7.16in x 3.29in. a bit larger than the previous models.
The PS Vita contains the standard PlayStation buttons (square, circle, x, triangle) in addition to two shoulder buttons (R and L) and start and select buttons. Two analog sticks are also present with the D-Pad, and the PS Menu button. As already mentioned, the PS Vita features a touchscreen panel but it is only able to be utilized in menu navigation.

 An additional multi-touch touchpad is located on the rear of the device. Accelerometer and Gyroscope sensors are present enabling you to control games by tilting the Vita, just like on several Android games.

 

Display Screen

Speaking of resolutions, the PS Vita has 960 by 544 pixels, 5-inch OLED screen which is able to rendering 16:9 aspect ratios. The screen is actually a capacitive-type touchscreen able to support multitouch capabilities. In contrast, the PSP 3000 has a 4.3 inch, 16:9 full transparent type TFT display with a lower resolution at 480 by 272 pixels.

Performance

The PS Vita runs on a quad-core ARM Cortex processor and a SGX543MP4+ Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). All these are a major improvements on what is found on the older PSP 3000 which has a CPU with clock speed of 333 MHz plus a GPU with clock speed of around 167 MHz. This only means that the PS Vita is capable of supporting games which have very high resolutions.

Storage

Looking back, the previous PSP models including the 3000 had very little internal memory. Just the PSP Go had a decent internal memory at 16 GB.
The PS Vita also goes away completely from the UMD disks as it comes with its own unique memory card known as NVG, which has capacities of 4 GB to 32 GB. Since it is unique to the Vita, you cannot exchange games between it along with the PSP 3000 which used Memory Stick PRO Duo and Memory Stick Micro cards. A huge gamble for sony to tackle piracy lets see how it goes.

Online connectivity

The PSP 3000 hooks up with the PlayStation Network (PSN) via Wi-Fi IrDa. Connecting to the Network allows you to access Friends Lists and messaging features in addition to buying games, movies, comics and music. Dependant upon the model, you’ll be able to connect to the PSN with the PS Vita through Wi-Fi or 3G.

Price tag

The PS Vita will set you back $250 for Wi-Fi Only Model and $300 for 3G Model via AT&T. The PSP 3000 is priced at around $130. Not many PS Vita games are announced currently and their prices range from $30 to $50.

On the whole the PSP Vita promises to be a fresh new prespective in the handheld gaming arena. lets see….
