The PlayStation Vita
may still be months away for the world outside of Japan, but that won't stop Engadget from reviewing
Sony's new handheld. Our cohorts put the hardware through its paces and found it to be a great piece of gaming kit with a sharp screen, a smooth interface and well-implemented controls. Like the 3DS, unfortunately, it suffers from very short battery life – about three hours of straight gameplay and up to five for media playback, social networking and the like.
Head over to Engadget
for the full (and very detailed) review, and stay tuned for Joystiq's review in the coming days.
