Must have some pretty high-res assets to enable a zoom function.

This is exactly what I am thinking.

I got a shit load of footage from GC of the Vita in action. It's a shame we have to wait until next year to get it. But most of the games look to be in a complete or near complete state already. So at least if most of the games that were shown off at GC are within the Vita's 90-day launch window, this is going to be the single best portable launch in history. Well worth the $250 and the unfortunate, extended wait until next spring. It'll feel so nice to finally have a proper portable game system again.

The Vita is damned near HD. The screen itself has a resolution of 960 × 544 pixels, which at 220 ppi, is physically larger than the 5" screen. So yeah, some pretty high res assets are needed, to fill all that. And these photos which show the game in it's native resolution, as well as condensed in a full-sized mock-up of the system, bear that out. And the 4-core SGX543MP4+ GPU in the Vita, can render images at a much higher resolution than that, even. So there is a lot of spare power there to really push the level of detail in Vita games to eye bleeding proportions as devs get more familiar with programming for it.

    MrWhite Yeah, I'll be bolloxed if I'm hunting for 800 koroks or whatever it is. At least the shrines offer a decentish reward. (12 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX I doubt I'll try to 100% Zelda, but I can already tell that it's a very big game. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX @Moonwalker: One for my desk and one for my livingroom. It would also be convenient to have a portable dongle. Part of the beauty of the device is portability. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Doing it that way before going to Ganon should take you in the region of about 100 hours, minimum. I only just finished the game 3 days ago. Nearly 8 weeks of hammering the game. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @GriftGFX:Zelda will keep you occupied for a brave while. If, you're like myself, you'll want to take in everything Hyrule has to offer by exploring everything (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @GriftGFX: Why a second dock? :) (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX but it's already being put through its paces in multiple modes. I would have bought a second dock immediately if they weren't so expensive. (7 Hours ago)
