From our Columbus Parent games reviewer, Shawn Sines, comes a review on the newest gaming console from Sony….

The latest Sony handheld gaming console finally reaches our shores: Sony Vita ($250 Wi-Fi or $300 for Wi-Fi/3G model).

This handheld plays classic Sony games and sports graphics comparable to the PlayStation 3 all with built in storage, wireless connectivity and an option to subscribe to 3G wireless services from AT&T.

The multi-touch controls along with a bright 5-inch OLED screen make the Vita a great mobile entertainment platform. Launch titles include versions of Sony's lead franchises like Uncharted, Little Big Planet, and Mod Nation Racers.
