This $99 gaming gadget is keeping my PlayStation Vita 2 dreams alive

6 Min Read

I’m a member of the Vita faithful. In my humble yet correct opinion, portable gaming hardware doesn’t come better than Sony’s ill-fated second handheld.

Launched in 2011 in Japan and a year later in the US and Europe, The Vita threw every hardware and software trick in the book into its luxurious piano black chassis. A 5-inch OLED panel? Check. Twin joysticks? Check. Front and rear cameras? Check. Headphone port and touchscreen? Check. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi? Check. It was small enough to be supremely portable but large enough to keep you engrossed in Uncharted, Need for Speed ​​or – my personal favorite – Everybody’s Golf.
