Vita Wins Prestigious Design Award

Sony PS Vita News

In what would be a victory for Sony, the Playstation Vita has picked up the Red Dot Award in Innovative Product Design. The award is given out by Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen of Germany and it is internationally recognised award. The judges of the award consist of people in the fields of product design, communication design, and design concepts. The PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset, PS3 Wireless Keyboard and PS3 3D Display had also won awards in design quality.

The announcement that the Playstation Vita will receive these awards were accompanied by a comment by SCE President Andrew House:

To be recognized for our commitment to product design by leading industry experts is a fantastic achievement for SCE. We are particularly thrilled with the reaction and expectation to the recently launched PS Vita in North America, and Europe, the ultimate portable entertainment system, especially the introduction of innovative new ways to play and interact. Winning a red dot award for product design further establishes PS Vita as the must-have portable entertainment system across the world.

To bring in the scope of the Vita winning these awards, the Red Dot Awards brought in 4,515 entries from 58 countries. Only 67 products were given an award in design and Sony has picked up four of them, with their new handheld gaming device the highlight. A great achievement by Sony Computer Entertainment and the designers behind the Vita.

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!
