Sony PS Vita – all you need to know

Gamers everywhere, rejoice! It has been months of waiting and dreaming, but the Sony PS Vita is finally available to buy in stores!

It seems like a lifetime ago that we were watching Japan closely, to see how this very impressive handheld fared in one of the gaming capitals of the world.

And while sales may not have been quite to Sony’s liking, that didn’t stop us from getting very excited about the Vita over here.

Many of us have already tried our hand at the Vita, either in selected shops or as part of the Vita’s tour of the country. But that doesn’t quite compare to taking it home and playing it for yourself.

And that time has now come – the time for talking is over, the time for playing anywhere and everywhere has begun.

We’ve been following the Vita’s progress over the past couple months, looking at every scrap and morsel of news and information we can. And now that it’s here, we’ve condensed it into one handy bite-sized guide.
