PlayStation Vita: the specifications

This is the future of handheld gaming.

We clearly all love Sony's new handheld, but understanding whats inside their little new device is always nice to know. Seeing that the PlayStation Vita will need to compete with the Nintendo 3DS, iPhone 4/5/... and other cellphones, the handheld will need to be able to punch the competitors in the face with his power and features. Beneath you can see a list of whats inside this new portable, from the processor to the buttons.


  • Quad-core ARM Cortex A9 processor
  • SGX543MP4+ GPU
  • 5-inch OLED touchscreen (960 x 544 resolution, 220ppi)
  • Rear touchpad
  • Dual analogue control sticks
  • Digital D-pad and six control buttons
  • Six-axis motion sensing technology
  • Stereo speakers & built-in microphone
  • Front and rear camera
  • Wi-Fi, 3G on 3G model
  • 182.0 x 18.6 x 83.5mm
 The new game medium needs an easy to carry case

The medium and games

UMD discs are gone, replaced by little memory cards. This medium can store the full software titles, and also save data as well as additional game content data. Therefore, the game title can be concluded with one card. There will also be expandable on-board storage for multimedia, accessible via memory card slot (memorycards ranging from 2GB - 32GB).

Users can play PSP titles, minis and PS1 classics titles offered via digital download. So far, there is no option to connect the vita to an external TV display.

  1. What about stereo Bluetooth like the pspgo has? The cameras? Gps? There's a lot left out still.
