The PS Vita will have extensive social networking features, and I'm not just talking about checking Facebook. Through 3G and WiFi, your Vita will connect to other Vitas, and to developers, who can push new content and offers for their games directly to your handheld.
Titles with strong online communities will benefit big time from this. I'm thinking of Little Big Planet, with all its user made content, and Wipeout 2048, which should have a big online racing scene. And even when you're not racing friends in multiplayer, you'll be able to see their best lap times, and they'll know about it the second you beat them.
A game that I'm really curious about is Hustle Kings. A pool shooting sim with a Words with Friends-style, turn-based multiplayer, it could be a real social gaming success story. For all the info, check out the Inside PS Vita: Social Connectivity video below:
