The PS Vita Is Available Now In the UK But Will You Be Getting One?

By Sam Gibbs on at

Sony’s most powerful and tricked-out attempt at the handheld gaming market launches on the mean streets of the UK today, but will the PS Vita be a success or have smartphones killed off what’s left of the portable gaming market?

I’m sitting on the fence on this one. I’d love one – frankly they look awesome (two thumb sticks, finally!). And the potential for hook-ups with the PS3 is absolutely killer. Sony even seems to be on the right track with PS Vita downloadable game pricing too. But I also don’t need another gaming device. For those rare times when I actually get a moment to play a game on the move, my iPhone does me well.

What about you dear readers? Are you plunking down your hard earned cash and claiming a PS Vita for yourself? If so, ASDA is apparently the cheapest place to pick one up at £197 right now. Shout out in the comments if you find it cheaper anywhere else.
