Synopsis: The PlayStation Vita bears a strong visual resemblance to the PSP, retaining the sleek black look and oblong shape of its handheld forebear, and featuring the standard directional pad, "Left" and "Right" shoulder buttons, and "Circle," "Square," "Cross," and "Triangle" action buttons. The similarities are purely superficial though, as the PSVita offers the long-awaited dual analog sticks, a rear touch pad, stereo speakers, a microphone, a Sixaxis motion-detecting system featuring a gyroscope and an accelerometer, front and rear cameras with face-capture and head-tracking abilities, and a five-inch (130 mm) organic light-emitting diode (OLED) touch screen. The PSV is powered by a 32-bit quad-core processor and a quad-core GPU, and offers 512MB of system RAM and 128MB of visual RAM. The standard model PSVita offers Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR connectivity, while a second version of the handheld also includes 3G support, built-in GPS features, and augmented reality software, with the 3G service being provided by AT&T in North America and Vodafone in Europe. Unlike the latter versions of the PSP, the Vita does not support video output or feature a removable battery. The device offers four online modes: "Near," which allows for local data sharing and discovery; "Party," which offers standard multiplayer gaming and includes cross-game text and chat; "Activity," which displays trophies and game ratings; and "LiveArea," a user interface that integrates social networking applications like Facebook, Twitter, and Skype. ~ Christopher Brown, All Game Guide
