writes "Sony has finally come out with its replacement for the PlayStation Portable, Playstation Vita. While they have made some strange decisions with the media playback abilities and web browser, the gaming experience is incredible. Thanks to quad-core ARM Cortex A9 CPU and PS Vita's processing power; the device eclipses PlayStation 2 in power and comes very close to the capabilities of the PlayStation 3. Also since Sony has moved away from the XrossMediaBar (XMB) menu design found in other Sony devices and gave the PS Vita a complete touch screen interface overhaul, the new system looks less like a gaming device's menu and more like a smartphone's menu system. The OS overhaul also introduces other applications like a Web browser, music and video players, a photo gallery a map tool that uses GPS on the 3G version, and Sony's Content Manager for connecting to and transferring files between the PS Vita and a PS3 or PC."
