    You got a few of facts wrong Brenna. (BTW I love the work you do)

    - It has a 720p Screen, not 1080p
    - There is 2 GB of RAM, not 4 GB
    - And the price is $349 instead of $359

    This thing is ugly, but hardware wise it makes Vita cry.

    Vita was mistimed I think… Lots of devices can overtake it powerwise in the next year.

    And to be fair, it’s power was the main thing it had going for it.
