Hence, it can run the most number of titles—both commercial and homebrew—from Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance (GBA) games. The small installer package can be downloaded from the WinDS site. Only at less than 30 MB, it contains DirectX 9, OpenAL, MSVC++ 2008 and other run time components. After just seconds of downloading, you are ready to install and play.

Playstation Hardware

Sony PS Vita’s specs clearly beat the ones that are found in 3DS. However, PS Vita does not only trump its close technological rivals but also the handhelds before it which were developed by Sony. However, the sales of Sony’s handhelds are not affected. Sony borrowed the pad and touch screen features from the DS handheld for its new portable. However, these features’ effect on the gamers is still to be observed. As reviewers, it is only safe to imagine what these gestures can do the handheld.

PS Vita has a 960x544-pixel OLED screen. Even if this is considered high in conventional gaming standards, this resolution is not enough to qualify it for HD gaming. However, this does not mean that the titles will be displayed poorly on the handheld. This is an observation based on the videos about PS Vita that are found online. PS Vita banks on the fact that the titles will be displayed with the same quality as the PS3 games in a similar way that 3DS relies heavily on its 3D capabilities.

Both PS Vita and 3DS support Wi-Fi connection, which enables their users to enjoy Bluetooth, GPS, and 3G data service. Nintendo 3DS installed Spot Pass and Street Pass as player matchmaking features in its handheld. To match these features, PS Vita also has Live Area. This is a social feature with location-based functionality for several players playing at one time.

In comparing their physical aspects, PS Vita looks bulkier than the previous PSP models. The additional bulky structure of the latest portable from Sony is due to its brick design. There are also two analog thumbsticks that are found in PS Vita while older PSP only has one. Nintendo SD also boasts of having an analog stick, the first ever for any Nintendo portable. The stick can be found above its D-pad.
PS Vita and 3DS are created with cameras on the front and back. These cameras are especially important for 3DS’ 3D photos. However, it is still a bit unclear about what the features of PS Vita’s cameras are. One thing for sure is that PS Vita has 3G connectivity, which makes our expectations positive for its camera functionality.

The touch screen feature of PS Vita is actually new to a Sony portable. PS Vita has a rear and front screen pad that easily reacts to the user’s touch. This is unlike 3DS which only have lower screen functionality. At times, it even needs a stylus in order to activate its pad’s features. Going back to PS Vita’s rear touch screen feature, this gives the portable a huge potential for the players to enjoy the game without anything getting in their line of sight.

The Future of PSP and PSV emulation

PS Vita is one of the best portables developed by Sony due to the features that are found it. Some of its features are even rarely found on other portable gaming device. However, what can be expected is how these new features will affect the gamers. Until now, the creator has not announced the official price of the portable but hopefully, it does not reach more than $300.
Nintendo already has a good head start when it released its 3DS device on March 27 in the US with a price tag of $250. Even if Sony did not release word yet as to the price of PS Vita, some loyal Sony fans are still eagerly waiting for its official distribution this holiday season.

As per these developments in the portable gaming business, it seems like 2011 is quite a year for new releases and a fierce competition between technological rivals. Aside from PS Vita and 3DS, there are also Apple’s iPhone and iPad. It is exciting to see if the sales of PS Vita and 3DS will match the sales of the previous portables or if Apple’s new devices will disturb the competition.
