Mystery Console 2 Revealed

That’s right, I got a PS Vita!

I managed to get what I thought was a great deal, I got the Tearaway bundle for £150, it also came with Little Big Planet and a 16GB Memory Card

I say Thought, it turns out that both games were merely downloads, and I hate downloads! Also, the Vita was a Wi-Fi model… Still, It was cheaper than how much it goes for normally…

So anyway, here’s a photo of the Vita itself:

I also got a few (retail) games with it, including Mortal Kombat 9, which I’ve been wanting to play for years now!

Clock-wise from top left: Assassins Creed 3: Liberation, Ninja Gaiden Sigma +, Dead or Alive 5+ and Mortal Kombat

So how is it? Well so far, I love it! The games look beautiful, especially on the OLED screen, and most of them run really smoothly. Mortal Kombat is even better than I hoped! Although the fatalities and x-ray moves were disappointing…

Dead or Alive 5+ is fun, although the developer didn’t put much effort into making it fit for the Vita, the lifebars are tiny!

Ninja Gaiden Sigma+ is alright, but the game only runs at 30 frames per second, which is a big letdown for me…

Tearaway is absolutely brilliant, it’s probably the best portable game I’ve ever played, well, 4th, right behind Pokemon Silver, Yellow and Pinball. I love Tearaway’s style and it’s light hearted-ness, I love that the developer still brought out a bright, colourful and silly game in a world currently overrun by dark and gritty games! In fact, I loved it so much, that I bought a physical version! I needed to have this gem on my shelf!

So my first impressions on the Playstation Vita? Seriously underated! It needs more owners, Tearaway alone is a good reason to own a Vita! Although I would get a 3G version on it’s own, and a retail copy of Tearaway, it doesn’t matter if you prefer physical or not, you need to have a version to own and keep!
