Sony PlayStation Vita - entertainment center in your travels
Last month we tested one of the strongest portable gaming consoles on the market. Console Sony PlayStation Vita has been my partner on various trips and has proven to be very helpful. The supreme portable entertainment system, PS Vita, has a range of approximately 4 hours, enough to keep you ugly on a race Bucharest - Paris, Bucharest - London, or on which countries you fly.
Sony PlayStation Vita it's not just a gaming console. We could say that it is a true entertainment center, even though the small size and the 5 inch screen limit the work experience. But it compensates with the idea that it can be a useful gadget in your travels. It is a small gadget, easily fits in luggage and can be used without disturbing others.
The PS Vita system offers new modes of interaction through a set of innovative features, such as the 5 inch OLED front touchscreen, the built-in touchpad (located on the bottom of the gadget), the two analog stick, sensors motion and the two camcorders.
I am working on 80 games in different categories. At the time of launch, several big names were already available such as: Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Wipeout 2048, Little Deviants, Unit 13, Modnation Racers: Roadtrip, Everybody's Golf and Reality Fighters.
I played pool and Unit 13. Most of the games are offered in the demo version, where you have access to only a few missions and facilities, the rest being for a fee. No applications are currently available. You are looking for yourself memory card with a capacity of at least 16GB. Games take up a lot of space!
In addition, with 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support, PS Vita facilitates your interaction and multiplayer activities through the new Near and Party applications. You can find PS Vita holders on board aircraft as well, so you can play on the net :).
On the social networking side, you won't miss Facebook, foursquare, Skype and Twitter. All come integrated in the newest portable console and you can communicate with your friends.
But we must not forget the list of news either 5 MP video camera which allows the recording of movies or the Map application that allows users to receive information about their current location and to plan their routes, whether pedestrian or motorized.
To make it easier to accommodate the new features and technologies included in PS Vita, the manufacturer has also included a suite of applications called Welcome Park, which explains and demonstrates the functionality of the new PS Vita, in the form of simple but fun games.
Console Sony PlayStation Vita is available in the 3G / WiFi version at the price of £ 1.449,99 and only WiFi at the price of £ 1.129,99. During the flight it is advisable to switch off the 3G connections, and WiFi can only be used on aircraft equipped with this technology. Virgin Australia has announced its intention to equip the entire fleet with Wi-Fi until 2013. Norwegian offers free Wi-Fi on board aircraft! You will also find Wi-Fi on board transoceanic and transcontinental aircraft.
