Whos got one or is seriously considering buying one in the near future? Im about to get one as a gift from my girlfriend as a birthday/holiday gift. But before she makes a purchase, i want to be sure theres a fanbase out there. I dont want to have one only for it to be like the PSP did so to say. Like with the PSP, it wasnt a huge hit compared to the DS. Thus the PSP missed out on a lot of titles and the development of games plundered as the devs skipped on its development because a lack of a fanbase. Lack of PSV sales = lack of game development. I dont want to get a Vita only for it to turn out like that. My gamestop has a few used already which isnt a good sign as far as a fanbase goes. So whos got one of these bad boys or is seriously considering it? If you got one, do you at all regret your purchase? If you dont have one yet, whats stopping you?
I got one at launch and I don't get why people cry over their purchase. I mean sure, the platform needs more exclusive made content for it, but there are some good and even great games out there. As there also was at launch.
I mean, come on. Those that bought the 3DS at launch for 250 and had basically NO GAMES in the launch window to enjoy. Now I would really feel if I had a bad buy if I got that one.
It depends what you want. I mean, you get an incredible line up with some news stories of the big bro PS3.
Uncharted, LittleBigPlanet, Rayman Origins, Streetfighter X Tekken, Mortal Kombat, Wipeout, Stardust Delta, Fifa, Motorstorm RC, Hustle Kings... Check out the new game Sound Shapes too.
Besides that some platform specific stuff like Escape Plan, Gravity Rush, Zero Escape (new great game!), Playstation All Stars (cross over with PS3 too, but also online competing for both platforms). Upcoming Tear Away from Media Molecule looks good too. Assassins Creed gets its own story on PSVita.
Besides that, look at the rating of games for PSVita and 3DS. And keep in mind the PSVita in the west (USA/EU) is just out a bit over a half year now: http://www.metacritic.com...tascore?view=condensed
The 3DS scorelist: http://www.metacritic.com...tascore?view=condensed
To me the PSVita has the more interesting games, I don't care for more Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Starfox and other decades and decades older IP's... I already got them rehashed on my Wii.
Sony just needs to lower the PSVitas price to well under 200 bucks. People don't buy handhelds at a pricelevel of 250, surely not if a PS3 even is cheaper or it can almost get one a new WiiUpgrade...
Is the system worth it? IMO it is, it gives good games, it has an awesome OLED screen, it gives even a better PSN experience than on the PS3 (it has cross game chat! even!) and the games will follow.
Best is to try one on a demopod or at a friends place I guess!
OH AND I ALMOST FORGOT: with PS+ arriving on the PSVita, giving an instant game collection like the PS3 got them this summer, get a subscription on that and enjoy a lot of games. This november it starts for PSVita. If you got a PS3 too, its a total no brainer as you get the subscription once and have both PS3 and PSVita supported by it.
