ABOUT ME

Play station Vita is a handheld game console developed by Sony and released on February 22, 2012. It has a 2 GHZ Quad core ARM cortex-a9 MP core cpu and 512MB ram.  It also comes with 1GB flash memory and PS vita memory card.   PS vita memory card comes in either 4, 8, 16, 32, or 64 Gb.  It has the ability to play PlayStation 4 games on it through the process of Remote Play (similar to the Wii U's function of Off TV Play), playing PlayStation 3 software on it through its cloud gaming service PS Now, and future connectivity with Sony's upcoming virtual reality device PlayStation VR.  The PlayStation comes in two different versions: one with 3G and wIFI support and a cheaper version without 3G support.  The Vita's internal battery has between 3–5 hours of power for game playing, depending on the processing power required for the game, screen brightness, sound level and network connections, among other factors.   Additionally, the battery can supply about five hours for video watching, and up to nine hours of music listening with the screen off.   Most games are distributed by the PS Vita card and are sold in stores, while some games, such as Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs AttackSuper Stardust Delta and Escape Plan, are distributed online and can only be purchased from the PlayStation Store.  The device is backward compatible with most PlayStation portable games, but lack of UMD drive limit the capability to only play those digitally released on Play station Network via the play station store.  Some applications come pre-loaded on the system, such as the Browser, Content Manager, Email, Music, and Videos applications, while others are downloadable from the PlayStation Store.  The PS Vita can boot into a "safe mode" in the event that it cannot start normally, allowing the user to update or restore the system software.
