Refurbished Sony Playstation Vita gaming console down to £110

It’s hard not to be impressed by Game’s preowned console section. These gaming devices come with controller and all the cables needed plus a 12-month guarantee and Game even has a 3-minute video showing all the steps a console goes through before it is put back on sale.

Out of the various consoles, the PS Vita (Wi-Fi edition) is the one that caught our eyes. The cheapest we managed to track it down in the UK was £159 but Game sells it for £110 with free UK delivery. You can find out more about the PS Vita in our review of Sony’s flagship portable gaming console.

In comparison, the retailer sells the new version of the Vita for £195 and the console went on sale for £209 originally inn 2011.

The console is powered by a quad-core ARM-based Cortex-A9 processor with an Imagination Technology PowerVR SGX543MP4+ GPU plus a 5in OLED 960 x 544 pixel display (5in is the size of the display of the Xperia Z)

The memory cards are expensive and battery life could definitely have been improved. Still, the PS Vita is the closest you can get to lounge console-gaming quality on the move.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
