Vita? I don’t need no stinkin’ Vita! It’s still PSP for me | PS3 Attitude

PS3 Attitude: "As much as I’d like one, unfortunately there’s no way I can justify, let alone afford, getting a PS Vita right now. Instead of looking upon owners of Sony’s latest handheld console with envy (well, to be fair I’ve been doing that too – obviously), I decided I would simply dust off my old PSP." (PS Vita, PSP)

Well I' ve finished most of the games he mentioned, psp had its time, now its psvita and all its features/ capabilities time to shine, waiting anxiously for the new resistance burning skies online patch, playing through gravity rush chapter 6,having tons of fun with escape plan asylum levels and lastly very, I mean very impressed with lbp vita beta.

I just wish evolution studios release a freaking brutal motorstorm game on the vita

I just recently got silent hill origins, crisis core, dungeon siege, and I downloaded ffvii all on my psp. I won't need any other games for a while, origins is a lot better than I thought it would be, the game was criticized for not evolving the silent hill formula but the only other sh I have played was the first.

The only psp game I haven't played but I want is monster hunter freedom unite.

At some point in the future you may well get a Vita and the great thing about it is that you will be able to play those PSP purchases on it, with crisper graphics and better controls. you are on the first step of a transition, and that is EXACTLY why Sony carry on promoting the PSP. I believe that eventually, when the games start pouring in for the Vita (for your personal tastes because there are plenty I love) then you will probably sell your PSP and buy a Vita... and you will never regret it.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   828d ago
Origins is a decent game and Crisis Core is awesome, some good buys you got there! =)
miyamoto  +   828d ago
Awesome games!

I am playing Black Rock Shooter on my PSP 3000 and its awesome too,

Buy sometimes my fingers want to multi touch the front and back of my PSP.

I wonder why...
Ultr  +   827d ago
Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is awesome!! even more awesome if you got some friends that also start with you! damn I put more than 140h into that game, and still going strong!
I play it on the Vita btw! looks great!
cpayne93  +   827d ago
@Ultr I actually have 3 friends who I could play with, so I'm definitely going to get it. But I really want to get it on vita like you said, mostly because of the second analog stick.

Motorstorm is an excellent franchise
remanutd55  +   828d ago
Motorstorm is my favorite new franchise from sony this entire generation , while others love Uncharted, Little Big Planet, inFAMOUS , i love Motorstorm and Resistance but Motorstorm a little bit more lol, LUNATICS UNITE!!!
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   828d ago
Motorstorm is really underrated, It was one of the first PS3 games I got back in 2006 and I don't regret a second of it.
Also Pacific Rift is amazing! haven't played apocalypse yet though I heard it's not as good as Rift? Anyway I really hope they release a proper Motorstorm game for the Vita.

That's a nice double negative. So, it looks like you do need a Vita.
goldwyncq  +   828d ago
I see what you did there
Hicken  +   828d ago
If only double negatives worked that way...

Edit: On topic, this mentality is part of the reason why Vita sales are as slow as they are. Too many people don't want to upgrade.

Hell, I was torn: I could have gotten another PSP and had some money left over. But then I wouldn't have Gravity Rush right now.

I LOVE Gravity Rush.

Anyway, people act like the Vita's price or the price of the memory cards is SO prohibitive, but even if you bought the 3G with the largest memory card, you'd still be coming out a good $200 cheaper than that iPhone or iPad you'd have no qualms buying. And $200 is five retail games, give or take.

Vita is a good system it just needs more games. Sony's e3 was a freaking joke also since I expected them to show a bunch of stuff for the vita to make me buy one but they didn't.
stage88  +   828d ago
Gamescom looks more promising
remanutd55  +   828d ago
sony E3 PRESS conference didnt show a lot vita related but there were 25 psvita games at E3 so yea the games were there.
bothebo  +   828d ago
Here you go. This should change your opinion:

They only had just over 3 pages prior to E3.

Just Shut up and get a Vita
stefhutch20  +   828d ago
Brilliant idea! I'll just magic up that £200 to buy one, shall I? :)

@capcock
wait a Min what did Sony not Show?

if you want to keep the idea of well they did not show anything at the conference...well be my guest. because that is not just E3. @ e3 SONY DID SHOW OFF PSVita GAMES on the show "floor" you know where it really counts! where people can play the Games and interact with the software and see upcoming games!

you may ask how not showing on E3 conference is helping you, i guess it's not or would not have helped you anyway by the sound of it.

"Vita is a good system it just needs more games."

the PSVita currently has over 40 games already released that are PSVita games,+ over 300 back catalog PSP games "
which i doubt anyone person has played every single one of those , or has completed every single one of those games. Than Add in PSP Mini's and than add in the AR games Sony has released for the PSVita.

and right now you are telling me there is not enough game's on the PSVita?

Im really starting to doubt many gamer's that Have that Idea about there is not enough Software on the PSVita.

it's more About the Price than anything, if you really deep down really want to search yourself that is the truth. be that it's memory cards are too high, well thank the Hacker's for that, they made the high cost for blank media for the system so their hacking attempts can be slowed because no Quick card reader's can be used this time!

they made the high cost blank memory all possible this time because they just could not stop messing with a closed system they knew which was closed in the first place, and yet released their Step by Step how too guides across the internet's all in the name of Homebrew knowing full well
It could lead to piracy. and with ISO dump's of UMD's being so easy to do..many could go to any P2P, or data hosting site and grab the software for free.

Many say well piracy never is a real problem for Nintendo or Microsoft why does it effect Sony so much.

Sony is not Microsoft or Nintendo!

Here is the thing, was the claim that Sony's software just does not sell well on their platforms..right so if it does not sell well and the software is not that great why Pirate it?

do people think not paying any money to the developer for any part of his software is not worth it, even if you do not like his game?

but i bought the PSP for this price and i expect better software..keep telling your self that.

when your software get's downloaded for free several times the number it was sold than venture capitalist WHO INVESTED IN YOUR PROJECTS IN THE FIRST PLACE SEE the number's and say my ROI is not where it needs to be and shuts down on a 2nd or 3rd game. that means 1st party is what you have left.

you cannot have it both way's people want more software , but do not really want to pay for it and in many cases any part of that software because they do not think the game is worth the money.

it is to the developer and the publisher, when hacker's make it easy to dump your publisher's and developer's software online and your sales are not that great anyway. many 3rd party's tend to shy away from your platform.

I think everyone so far in the thread has valid points. As a Vita owner I think they could have focused a little more on the vast number of games they have lined up. It only helps to get the image of the brand and the system to show that they have a bunch of software in the pipeline.

After reading the article it only makes me wish that they brought that trade-in program to the states and actually made it work.

Vita has games!!!! i currently play at least 5 of them regularly and that says alot being that i have to share that time with my ps3.
bobacdigital  +   828d ago
the vita needs a gimmick to be recognized... Just because you have more power than the other handheld doesnt mean you will do well .. Wii is an example of this... More and more people are becoming casual gamers and the amount of hardcore gamers are dwindling... I just cant fathom spending 250 bux on a vita and then crap loads of money for sony memory cards and games... I can just buy an IPAD or a freaking WIIU / PS3 for the price of a Fully functional VITA with games lol...

Whoever wrote this must be crazy.. PSP is good but its crap @ the same time.. Disc loading battery consumption & analog design sux.. Vita has damn near every psp title in the ps store & vita is not just a vamped up psp.. Its very VERY different.. Vita is at least 2 generations ahead of the competition & theres so many great games now & coming.. M
i was hesitant about making the upgrade myself cuz memory was so expensive but i did it anyway & i would do it again
KosmoCrisis  +   828d ago
Memory was definitely an unexpected expense when I bought my Vita on day 1. Another negative to speak on is the 3G model. The monthly data rate and allowance is a joke, and so is AT&T.

Though, there are not nearly enough downloadable PSP games available on Vita, no where near the total number of PSP games available on the PSP in UMD form. There are still several hundred titles to be added to the store for PSP, let alone the number of titles needing the special attention Sony says is required before the same game comes to Vita.

Vita purchases are made a bit easier though knowing there are free games to download as soon as you boot it up. Motorstorm RC in the US and Hustle Kings if you bought it on PS3 already. There are several other games that are Cross-Purchase between PS3 and Vita. Pinball Arcade FTW!

It's only the first 4 months:
And people are acting as the Vita has been out for years. What the hell is happening this generation? Name me any console to date that has provided the updates, services and games compared to the Vita in the first 4 months. Didn't the 3DS start picking up steam within it's first year like... you know.... when games ACTUALLY have time to be released.

God I just bought it yesterday with Gravity Rush and Escape plan. Both of which could take up my time considerably and I'm even considering getting mediocre titles like Resistance: BS due to the fact there is a disconnect between reviewers and user gameplay sessions.

Could we at least wait till a year has passed and reserve judgments till then? So far Assassin's Creed and CoD may turn out to be a surprise. We can also look forward to gamescom to see whatever PS vita news could be revealed.

@ capcock. Okay for the last time I will say it and listen well this time because everyone keeps saying despite it not being true. Sony DID SHOW VITA GAMES AT E3. If you look at game sites you will see the games they showed. They did not show them on the stage but they showed them at E3. They were there if you would bother to look. And they even showed us VITA games even before E3.If you would look and listen before you talk you wouldn't just keep repeating the same crap over and over. The VITA is not dead, there are games for it and Sony didn't forget to show them. To add to that we are getting our own Silent Hill,COD AND Assassins Creed for it. The stage conference is not the only part of E3. Good. I said it and won't say it again because I said it too many times and I am tired.
