If you want to strip the hard veneer of a PlayStation Vita and see what you can find, someone else already had that plan. Released on the 17th of December in Japan and other parts of Asia, it is expected to be released in the U.S. and Europe only on the 22nd of February.
While the wait is long and annoying, you can satiate your thirst and hunger for a PlayStation Vita by looking at these pictures, in which a brand new PSP successor has been torn apart to reveal the innards. It looks pretty much like any electronic device and it should too, for you can’t really expect a brand new portable console to look any different from other electronic devices un less you know a lot about them.
However, a commenter has noted that certain PlayStation Vita consoles come with a Samsung or Toshiba/LG SSD and screen. The Samsung parts are supposed to be a millisecond faster, or so the rumors go. The PlayStation Vita is really impressive and comes with an OLED multi-touch capacitative touchscreen, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and even 3G if you want your Internet connectivity to be really fast. Thanks to the 4 core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processor you can expect some really fast game-play which would not have been possible on a PSP.
The gaming community in the U.S. and Europe has been desperately waiting for the Vita to be released, and when it is finally released you can expect an iPhone 4S-like rush at the stores. You could read about how people have been waiting for PlayStation Vita since many months, and initially we had predicted an October 28 release. Sling the Fling Mini Smartphone Joystick is a great way to keep playing games on your phone on the go. Meanwhile, you could salivate over these pictures of a ripped PlayStation Vita until you lay your dirty hands on the real deal.
