Handheld Game Consoles: PlayStation and Nintendo

PS Vita

The Japanese launch of the PlayStation Vita has been a moderate success, with the new handheld console from Sony pushing 321,000 units in the first two days.

To put it in perspective, the rival Nintendo 3DS sold 371,000 units in the first two days. While the Vita lags behind the 3DS in terms of launch sales, the original PSP was wildly popular in Japan, so time will probably be the test as to whether the Vita’s feature set will push it ahead of the 3DS.

The North American launch of the PlayStation Vita isn’t until February 22, 2012.


Wii U E3 2011

Gamers will get another early look at the Wii U as Nintendo brings the hardware to CES 2012. Announced at E3 2011, the Wii U is the next generation console from Nintendo that features a touchscreen controller, as well as full 1080p high-definition graphics.

While a prototype was shown at E3 2011 in conjunction with the announcement, we still haven’t had a chance to see the full capabilities of the device, and hopefully what’s show at CES 2012 will give us some more insight into exactly what the Wii U can do.

CES is in full swing on Jan. 10.


#NerdGirls will try to post as much as we can and as quickly as we can dealing with CES in Jan. So keep an eye out.
