5 reasons why PS Vita makes the perfect Christmas gift

(continued from previous page) ...a short space of time. Sony didn’t make it easy for us to store games on our handheld, thanks to the limitations of its proprietary memory cards, but Vita does let you transfer and store titles on your PC or PS3 so there’s no excuse not to download directly – you’re also likely to save a bit of cash too as the lack of packaging means a cheaper price.


5. Vita shows its strength for online gaming, co-op and multiplayer experiences
Vita is by far the best gaming handheld for online multiplayer experiences and it has its fair share of co-op games too. The Play, Share and Create motto of the LBP franchise is ever apparent in LittleBigPlanet Vita which provides infinite replay value through user’s ability to share their level creations with others, while Need For Speed: Most Wanted lets you connect and compete with those on your friends list seamlessly via the innovative Autolog function. In FIFA 13 you can connect seamlessly to an online multiplayer match and for those looking for first-person shooter thrills Resistance: Burning Skies has a basic yet enjoyable online offering and Black Ops Declassified has 4vs4 battles across five game modes.

WipEout has a great online community too and competition in Sony’s multiplayer-focused brawler, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, is fierce. Though it’s clear Vita still needs more solid multiplayer experiences there’s plenty to enjoy right now and some of the best experiences are with co-op play in the likes of Unit 13, LittleBigPlanet Vita and Ragnarok Odyssey.

For the sake of balancing the argument over whether PS Vita is worth investing in right at this moment, we’ll have another feature shortly that will look at areas where Vita could be improved and where it hasn’t done so well.
