Show Us Your Old Gaming Rigs To Win A PlayStation Vita

We love technology both new and old, and we love seeing all the crazy contraptions that you guys put together to keep your technology alive. Today, we’re pretty excited that the latest innovation in portable gaming, the Sony PlayStation Vita, is available at RadioShack!

This handheld system will make you wonder how that old Atari kept you entertained so long. The PlayStation Vita has monstrous 5-inch touchscreen OLED display, so you can clearly see where that next jump is. It also features a Six-axis motion sensing system, so you can control your games without pressing a button, though it also has the regular assortment of gaming buttons, including dual analog joysticks.
