Despite my often tumultuous relationship with my PSP, I can't help but be seduced Sony's brand-spankin'-new SuperOval, the PlayStation Vita. As with its predecessor, the device aspires to bring the console experience to one's grubby paws, and as is inevitable, it will probably fall short of the mark. Still, for those of us who aren't expecting an on-the-go PS3 experience, the Vita is a prospectively fascinating device, if only by virtue of the fact that it joins the long line of "latest and greatest" handheld tech.
Many of us have been curious to see how the Vita plays, and now, in this Foul Year of our Lord 2012, "more than 3,300 U.S. GameStop stores now have playable demo units of PlayStation Vita," according to Game Informer.
The Vita will have a decent selection of demos available, including:
- Uncharted: Golden Abyss
- Little Deviants
- Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational
- EA Sports FIFA Soccer
- ModNation Racers: Road Trip
- Virtua Tennis 4: World Tour Edition
- Escape Plan
- wipEout 2048
So if you've been curious about this pint-sized (or perhaps no so much) wonder-thing, and wish to get your own hands-on preview, head down to your local Gamestop and give it a whirl.
