Two New Vita Accessories Revealed

Sony PS Vita News

As with every portable system out there, an abundance of accessories will be available for the Playstation Vita. Over in Japan, two new accessories have been revealed, one of them makes the Vita look like one of your Dualshock controllers. Pictured above, the “Assist Grip” accessory, by Datel Japan, gives you that extra grip or if you just want your Vita to look and feel like a Dual Shock controller. The price of this accessory is ¥1,380, which is roughly US$17.91/AU$17.07.

The second accessory is somewhat more useful. Since many have complained about the low battery life, Sony is presenting the USB Portable Power Set. It’s purpose is to recharge the Vita battery if it goes dead while on the road. The output, however, is at 2,000 mAh, which is less than the 2,210 mAh of the Vita’s battery. Despite being a Sony product, it is usable with other devices, such as Nintendo’s 3DS. It will be priced at ¥2,980, which is US$38.68/AU$36.87. Sony will be releasing a Vita specific portable charger later this year. Below is what the Portable Charger looks like.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!

    Ooo I like the assist grip. I tend to get hand cramps when playing handheld systems, and  I think that would lessen it substantially.

    They should have combined the two products, like the PSP grip/extra battery, thing I’ve got. There’s already one for the Vita, though it doesn’t look to be contoured as nicely as the above grip.
