Have you been noticing your kids gazing at the new consoles coming out with awe? Yep, I know what you’re thinking— you know Christmas this year just might include a number of upgrades, yet you’re wondering what distinguishes the differences between it and it’s newer, improved version, right?
Well then it’s time to face facts and see if it’s worth buying the newer versions:
Sony- PSP vs. PS Vita:
The PS Vita supersedes the PSP in many ways— utilizing touchscreen, with many games embracing this with ease, enhancing your overall interaction. This is also paired with a touch- sensitive cover on the back, giving a much more involved gaming experience, which the PSP lacks.
The PSP’s one control pad made gaming much more difficult (when scanning the surroundings is crucial), so Sony fans must have cried with joy when the Vita was released with two analog stick controls— much more like traditional PlayStation controllers.
The Vita instantly integrates with your PlayStation 3 game files and data, meaning that any progress you make will be saved on the other automatically. This cross-compatibility also allows you to buy a game on one system, and download it on the other free. Of course, the PSP could do none of these things. Overall, for a better gaming experience definitely upgrade to the PS Vita.
Apple- iPhones vs. iPhone5:
If you’re more interested in app-based 3D gaming then the iPhone 5 may be for you, which out-performs all other iPhones. Since the iPhone 5 is slightly taller, it’s display screen is longer too. It therefore has a much higher screen resolution, with Apple’s innovative ‘Retina display’, meaning that graphics are much clearer and colorful, with better touch sensitivity than previous iPhones making it more responsive. If you were to upgrade you would notice a significant difference in performance from older iPhones, however the likely hood is a new iPhone will be out prior to Christmas so this one might be one to wait on.
Nintendo- DS vs. 3DS:
The Nintendo 3DS is more engaging than the DS, with more processing power, a better battery life and a more innovative use of it’s two screens than the DS. The graphics are more advanced and displayed in a much higher resolution on both screens, which are widescreen and 3D on the top, and touch sensitive on the lower screen, as opposed to the DS’s control pad.
However, since inevitably it is more expensive than the DS, if you’ve been thinking that the 3DS might be the one to go for, you can exchange your old DS console for cash. Selling DS games and the old consoles is a great way to finance the new purchases and is quick and easy with companies like Music Magpie. By exchanging your old DS for cash, and also it’s games if you wish, you will be able to put this money towards upgrading to Nintendo’s latest and best hand-held console to date.
