Handheld gaming has come a long way, and the advances even in the past couple of years have been huge.

If you're thinking of taking gaming on the go, it can be a difficult task to choose which handheld gaming device to buy. They're all amazing, but each one is a little different in how it's used and the kind of games it's good at. Here are the 5 reasons I think you should buy a PSVITA.

1. The PSP Has a Big, Bright Screen: Compare the screen resolutions of handheld game systems and this is what you'll find:

  • DS: 256 x 192 pixels, 3 inch screen (x2)
  • iPhone/iPod Touch: 480 x 320 pixels, 3.5 inch screen
  • PSP: 480 x 272 pixels, 4.3 inch screen

2. The PSVITA is a Portable Multimedia SystemIf you're looking to carry around a single device that does all kinds of things, then the PSVITA is your best bet.

3. The PSP Has the Most Intuitive ControlsIf you've ever played a game on a PlayStation--be it PS1, PS2 or PS3--you'll be comfortable with the PSP's buttons. The layout is exactly the same as a DualShock controller, lacking only one of the two sets of shoulder buttons.

4. The PSVITA Can Interact With the PlayStation 3Although it has only be implemented on a few games so far, PSVITA-PS3 interaction has huge potential. If you've already got a PS3 or plan to buy one, then a PSP is the obvious choice for a handheld.

5. The PSVITA's Game Library is Getting Bigger and BetterIt's taken some time, but the PSP's library of games just keeps getting better. A lot of people once complained that the PSP just didn't have much to offer, but not very many people have that complaint now.

With PSP games in big series like God of War, Jak and Daxter, Resitance, and Ratchet and Clank, and more big franchises on the way this year, the PSP game library will very soon be hard to beat.
