has outlined PS Vita's many Inputs with the PlayStation Vita video game Sumioni: Demon Arts below today.
To quote: So PS Vita is officially out! Many of you are probably holding it in your hands right now, basking in that "new system smell" and lovingly polishing that beautiful screen to a glossy sheen. I know I am!
Still, PS Vita is dauntingly new and different from what I'm used to as a gamer. The touchscreen and the rear touch pad are like strange creatures to one such as I, having played mostly PSP titles since 2006.
Even brief stints with other touchscreen devices couldn't have hoped to prepare me for the subtle sensitivities and nuances of PS Vita - to say nothing of the way it harmoniously mixes its multi-touch functionality with traditional analog stick and button controls.
As more and more PS Vita games utilize these unique features (and game designs get more and more complex and challenging in the process), learning to switch between analog controls and touchscreen actions on the fly, or learning when and how to get the most out of the rear touch pad, will become absolutely essential to your gaming survival.
And that's where Sumioni: Demon Arts comes in.
Due for release in North America next...
