PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS Lose Battery Test Race To The PSP
Although the Sony PlayStation Vita is creating some technical stumbles out of the launch gate, one in every of the larger queries surrounding the new gaming gadget has been its battery life--or apparent lack thereof. One gamer by the name of "kurekureyon" dedicated his day to testing the Vita's battery life against that of the Nintendo 3DS and a PSP-3000 model. By setting every device on continuous play (and with some innovative use of rubber bands for the PSP's analog sticks), "kurekureyon" discovered that the PSP truly trumped each of the newer handhelds.
• Nintendo 3DS = 2 hours, 35 minutes [1300mAh battery]
• PlayStation Vita = 3 hours, 47 minutes [2210mAh battery]
• PlayStation Portable = 9 hours [2200mAh battery]
