Marc, Blackburn Hardcore gamer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Decent games
Some good apps like YouTube
Playstation plus
Psn
First party titles like Uncharted are excellent
Developers like ubisoft putting time into making games specifically for vita like assassin's creed liberation
Hopefully full ps4 integration in terms of remote play and cross controller
Bad points:
Expensive memory cards
Games like fifa 13 and call of duty declassified. The third party developers treated the vita versions of these games as an afterthought and still charged full price.
Needs bigger memory cards eg 64gb and 128gb
No Netflix for uk
Remote play not being utilised that well on ps3. Hopefully it will have full integration with ps4
