Sony's PS Vita puts living room gaming into your hands

PS Vita: Box Cover

Sony's PlayStation Vita (PS Vita) handheld gaming system is unique because it allows you to not only play three of the same games as those available on the PlayStation 3 (PS3) but also to play against players on the PS3 and transfer your game progress between the devices.

This is the box cover for the PS Vita. You'll notice the version tested has 3G service (which required an additional purchase, so I didn't try it) and Wi-Fi. It also comes bundled with an 8 GB memory card and a free downloadable game for activating the AT&T 3G service.
