The curtain has been raised on PlayStation’s latest creation, the Vita. This is the next generation of its portable gaming system.
The device was originally nicknamed the “NGP” in an attempt to keep its design a secret. It was debuted in Los Angeles at the Sony E3 conference, and looks identical to the prototype that was leaked earlier in 2011.
This successor to the PSP will have a 5-inch touch screen, dual analog sticks, rear controls, 6-axis sensors and dual-facing cameras. It is also said to operate on a quad-core ARM Cortex A9 processor.
The Vita will also feature Wifi and 3G connectivity. AT&T has been named the exclusive 3G partner of the Vita.
It is set to hit the market for the 2011 holiday season, and will have price options of $249 (Wifi) and $299 (3G).
