Sony Corp. this week demonstrated Uncharted: Golden Abyss for the Playstation Vita at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.

Uncharted: Golden Abyss included several demonstrations of the PSVita hardware, including touch-based platforming and stealth attacks.

The touch functionality was nimble and worked at every tap. Users can single-tap on each brick or ledge or trace their path across several bricks.

In addition, a touch-tap to stealth kill enemies was satisfying and quick.

Shooting controls take a traditional setup with the dual analog sticks and triggers. The current controls worked well, with aim and shooting properties consistent with prior installments.

The current frame rate held at 30 frames-per-second. While not exact to the most recent Uncharted entry, the visuals were impressive and very close to the console counterpart, including lush textures and generous animation.

The PS Vita will include the dual analog sticks, a 5-inch multi-touch OLED display, 3G & GPS, front and rear touch panels, and a compass on three axes. It will utilize flash-memory game cards.

Hardware specifications include an ARM Cortex A9 4-core CPU, front camera, rear camera, built-in microphone, and Bluetooth 2.1.

The company will partner with AT&T to allow current customers to access Wi-Fi hotspots nationwide.

The PS Vita Party mode will allow users to chat with nearby owners. In addition, near will allow users to play with friends using their PSN ID.

The Wi-Fi only model will sell at $249.99. The 3G model will sell at $299.99.
