One, a 5-inch multitouch screen located on the front. And second, a touchpad found on its rear.  Playstation Vita will also add another analog stick, evolving from previous PSP models that had only one.  Every game will also have a “LiveArea” where users can share with other players using the same game.

Sony provided a good deal of information about its newest device.  If users want more information they could find that on Sony’s Website.  They have set the cost of the device at $249 for the Wifi version and $299 for the 3G version.  Sony partnered with AT&T for customers based in the United States.
