Sony PlayStation Vita hands on review
Sony PlayStation Vita - build quality & controls
Despite being fairly large, the Vita feels light enough for long gaming sessions without causing wrist-ache. Pushed around by our powerfull muscular thumbs, the Vita's analog sticks felt a little bit flimsy – if they were stiffer, moving and aiming would be smoother. We also wonder how durable the sticks will be when stuffed into a rucksack, although their low profile will probably help.
The touchscreen is useful, allowing you to quickly select items from your character's inventory and adding extra swipe commands for combat. If you don't want to smudge the crisp 5in display, the back is also a stroke-sensitive panel.
