Rounding out our little Vitapalooza this fine Sunday, a hands-on session with the most highly anticipated title for the Playstation Vita so far, Uncharted: Golden Abyss. This is the game that is going to show off just what the Vita hardware is capable of in the early days of this new platform and is likely to be a major system seller. As you can see, even looking at this off-screen video, Golden Abyss looks simply amazing. I often compared the PSP to having a PS2 in your pocket in the past, and if Drake’s newest adventure from Sony Bend is any indication, the Vita is going to draw a lot of comparisons to having a PS3 in your pocket.
Check out the video for some examples of the new controls and those killer visuals in both platforming and shooting segments. My favorite use of the touch screen is being able to drag from the grenade icon to a location on screen in order to aim. Very nice!
