PS Vita is SUPER OVAL, has stupidly high-res touchscreen photo



At GDC this week, Sony's Chris Norden described the PlayStation Vita's shape as "Super Oval." I had no idea that was an actual thing, but if it was, you'd think it would be reserved for the truly fantastic. I'm thinking about living eggs, like Humpty Dumpty or Sheldon from Orson's Farm. Those are some really super ovals. 

Norden also boasted that the Vita's touchscreen is so sensitive, it can offer sub-pixel precision. Basically, if you cut your fingers off and replaced them with straightened paper clips, you could still enjoy as much Uncharted as you ever could. 

What the Hell am I talking about this morning? Screw you, Sony, putting inane concepts in my head!

Let Ashes of the Singularity change your notion of large-scale RTS

Real-time strategy titles often feel large-scale by design. There are a whole bunch of units on the battlefield, and the player's tasked with directing them all simultaneously. Even if there aren't that many actual parts in t...more
