Sony Playstation Vita To Launch In Japan:
The most awaited Sony Playstation Vita is going to have a launch in Japan at the last month of this year.
While this news creates excitement for Playstation fans in Japan, the North Americans are just hearing the clocks ticking waiting for the Vita to finally come in their area.
Sadly, there’s no sign of Sony Vita as of yet in their area.
Apparently, it was announced that Sony will launch 26 games for the system that will include a wide array of peripherals and proprietary cards.
Basically, the system has no built-in memory that’s why you need to buy the proprietary cards in order to use the downloadable games, movies or music.
So, this is like a good strategy for Sony. On the other hand, battery life is also one that needs attention here. This may be the only downside that I can see in Sony Vita.
Imagine you should bother yourself in setting your brightness into default with Bluetooth turned off and headphones use for audio.
In order for you to have a greater picture of what I am talking about, take a look at this information provided below:
Available Memory Card System Battery Life
4GB -¥2,200 ($29) Game (3-5 hours approximate)
8GB -¥3,200 ($42) Video (5 hours approximate)
16GB -¥5,500 ($71) Music (9 hours approximate) stand by mode
32GB -¥9,500 ($124)
In other words, the release of Sony Vita is something that we expect, but taking into account its cost including the proprietary cards and the limited battery life are quite disappointing.
No wonder, one day we will also be required of buying a third party battery pack which I hope will not happen.
