Oh and just for fun, a PlayStation Portable as well. A YouTube user who has picked up the PlayStation Vita has decided that the best way to test out the battery life of the system was to compare it to the Nintendo 3DS and Sony’s last handheld the PSP. The video for the test can be seen below and is sped up 60 times and even to 100 times at one point, but be warned it is still 9 minutes in length.
For those who like to hear about specifics, Andriasang has broken down the stats for each handheld used the PSP is a PSP-3000 Hunsters Model with an expanded 2200mAh battery. The Nintendo 3DS is a Zelda 25th anniversary system with the system’s standard 1300mAh battery. Both are playing the same title, Monster Hunter 3 respectively for each system.
The Vita is the 3G Wi-Fi model with its standard 2210mAh battery and is playing Uncharted off of the game card. The systems are all set to their highest brightness and volume with the Nintendo 3DS’ 3D setting all the way at max. Those who don’t feel like watching the video and learning how long each system lasts can simply catch the breakdown of results below.
- 3DS dies at 2 hours 35 minutes.
- Vita dies at 3 hours 47 minutes.
- PSP dies at 9 hours
