first time at the Gadget Show. At present, the £799 device is available only on pre- order.


The underlying message of Sony’s


PSVita is “connecting the world”, explained Paul McCaffrey, assistant store manger of Sony Centre in Lincoln. The device features Cross Play which means that two people can play each other in two distant locations. “The power of the machine is immense and graphically the device is almost as good as PS3. Importantly, it is not only a consol; PSVita can be used as a web browser, so it is a tablet at the same time. The current £250


offer includes the consol, the game and £40-worth of game vouchers.” Sony Tablet S was one of the most powerful Android-operated tablets on the market. With its unique design, that of a folded page, it is built to feel like a book in the user’s hand. It is equipped with DNLA functionality enabling the user to ‘throw’ (stream) a film onto a TV screen within seconds. “At £300, it is a very accessible tablet to the wider audience,” argued Paul McCaffrey. LG’s key offer at the Gadget Show, aimed at gamers, was Dual Play. It is available on LG Cinema 3D televisions,


which constitute 60% of the manufacturer’s TV line-up for 2012. “Dual Play is a technology which converts a split screen game – vertically or horizontally – with the help of 3D Dual Play glasses – into a full screen 3D gaming experience,” explained George Mead, head of consumer marketing at LG. “With a touch of a 3D button, player A doesn’t see player B and gets the full screen experience of the same game. The gaming market is huge and LG wished to ensure that gaming on its televisions is in top class picture quality and delivers the best overall experience.” ■
