Finally, I got my hands on a PS Vita. I played the TGS build of Uncharted: Golden Abyss, which is a system exclusive. I can see why it’s difficult for games reviewers to get a sense of what a product (a game and system, in this case) will be like on launch just from playing a demo. The game demo was short, a bit buggy, but overall pretty impressive. The bug, if you’re wondering, involved Drake getting into a “ready” position to hoist an AI character onto a higher platform. The AI character proceeded to get stuck, and there was no way to cancel the canned animation.  Graphics from the Vita looked somewhere close to a 360, and possibly better, but it’s difficult to say with any certainty. There were high resolution textures, lots of simultaneous sounds, and a relatively smooth play experience. The demo isn’t enough to convince me that the system is worth buying, but then again, I’ve been soured by my PSP experience. I shouldn’t have to hack my system to access functionality I want it to have (to be specific, I want to play PS1 games I already own without having to buy them again).
