Although there are elements about the PlayStation Vita that could use more attention, there’s still lots of potential in Sony’s handheld. And let’s not forget that Sony kicked off the PS3 with a rather rocky start, but eventually righted the ship. Hopefully, in six months, gamers will be talking about solid PlayStation Plus integration that allows the sort of free game perks seen on the PlayStation 3.
Ideally, there will be more app partnerships announced that will increase its value as not just a handheld gaming system, but a portable entertainment option. Finally, with Sony’s push for indie games, there will be more excellent, creative titles that utilize the hardware outside of the big-budget realm. Look for an assessment when the Vita’s first anniversary hits.
