Everyone gave Sony s*** about the battery life of the Playstation Portable. And rightfully so, as it, for lack of a better term, blew chunks. Of course, gamers were nervous that the same issue would arrise for the Playstation Vita, as Sony is really good at ignoring the obvious. Luckily, it doesn’t seem to be the case this time.
After a battery test of every feature and a full test that included gameplay, online gameplay, web browsing, and app usage, the system last 4 hours and 29 minutes with everything turned on and turned up. That includes the 3G and Wifi turned on, the brightness at its maximum, auto-updating on, and volume at 50% with headphones in. All things considered, 4 and a half hours isn’t too bad.
