Take gaming on the go with PS Vita

From the top Sony franchises to the biggest indie hits, the PS Vita is designed to give players a premier gaming experience on a portable, handheld console.

Best Buy has a huge selection of the best games for PS Vita, along with a wide variety of PS Vita accessories to suit your needs.

Game library

Sony plans to cease production and shipping of the PS Vita console in 2019. However, there is still a massive library of over 1000 games waiting to be explored on the platform—enough to satisfy players for years to come. The PS Vita catalogue includes everything from major PlayStation franchises such as Uncharted (such as the PS Vita exclusive Uncharted: Golden Abyss) to hit Indie titles like Stardew Valley, Undertale, and Minecraft—all ready to travel with you wherever you may go. The PS Vita is also a prime destination for many Japanese titles that are not available in North America on any other platform!


Choosing the right accessories can help you get the most out of your PS Vita experience. Memory cards come in a number of different sizes, so make sure you choose one large enough to house your growing PS Vita software collection. Other necessities include a travel case and screen protector to keep your PS Vita console in pristine condition, as well as a PS Vita charger to ensure that you always have enough battery power to keep the fun going.

PlayStation 4 Remote Play and streaming

The PS Vita console also has integrated functionality with the PlayStation 4. So long as you have a moderately robust broadband connection, you can access near-full potential of your home PlayStation 4 console on PS Vita via Remote Play. Most games and apps can be streamed directly to the PS Vita using this feature. For example, with Remote Play you can continue playing games that are streaming your PS Vita console from your PlayStation 4 console while someone else in your house watches television on another input!

Some games and apps also utilize the PS Vita as a second screen, sending additional content such as maps and menu screens to the PS Vita, working in conjunction with what is being presented on your smart TV. The PS Vita also supports many of the most popular streaming applications, such as Netflix, Hulu, Crackle, and Crunchyroll.

PS Vita vs. PSP

The PS Vita features a number of impressive improvements over its predecessor, the PSP (PlayStation Portable). The most notable is probably the addition of dual analog sticks, a feature that is essentially a must in relation to the way we control modern games. Along with its capacity for Remote Play with the PlayStation 4 console, the PS Vita also introduces another huge component that serious gamers found lacking in the PSP—trophy support. Players can finally work on their trophy collection from anywhere and improve their notoriety in the PlayStation community by earning trophies on the go with PS Vita.
