PS Vita is More Than A Gaming Device

ps vita & gamesThe PS Vita does so much more than just play games. I have had my PS Vita for a month now and I use it for a lot more than games. My kids love it as a gaming machine, I love it as a fun machine.

See, the PS Vita is an all around really awesome fun machine. I keep mine by my bed and when my husband is watching his fishing shows, I have access to my own movies and TV (or I can figure out where the closest spa is on the map so that while he fishes, I’m getting my form of relaxation.)

Disclosure: I received the PS Vita and games because I am a PS Family Ambassador. All opinions are 100% my own.

  • I have always steered clear of PS-related things but the Vita looks brilliant! I had a PSP and it was a nightmare and I traded it in but it seems that the Vita might be the piece of technology that might change my mind 🙂

  • I have a Nintendo 3DS XL and it does most of these things, but the Vita looks like it has MUCH better graphics and I was also impressed by the maps… I didn\\\’t know it had that. I love the 3D on my system, but the video quality looks so awesome I may have to buy on the Vita. If the price falls though I may pick one up for the \”Family\”. 🙂

  • For now I think that PS Vita is a bit overpriced and it’s missing AAA titles, but I really hope that this Christmas Sony will drop down its price and maybe I will buy one, because it is a wonderful piece of hardware.

  • I love how you did this post. I am such a visual person that it sparked all kinds of ideas for me to share w/my daughter (the Vita owner in our household) that will be easy for her to implement. As a ‘strict’ mom she is not utilizing the social elements just yet but I can see where she will be quickly headed.

Let me know what you thought!!
