"Sony Pretty Much Rocked The Vita At Gamescom" True.
a better version of your comment:
You forgot the Trolololo.
More like finally giving some love to the Vita, not complaining though, really good conference...
Sony had a great GamesCom... even better than E3 IMO. I haven't seen one PSV is "doomed" article since their press conference. Super pumped for Tearaway and cross console purchases. Oh, and that whole PS One Classics thing. Haters be damned.
"I haven't seen one PSV is "doomed" article since their press conference." wait a day or two, they'll pop up sooner or later...
the vita is dead. it has so much more to do if it expects to be a contender in the future.
it is so dead after just a couple months of release just like the ps3 /sarcasm
My comment is marked down for trolling.... huh Anyone want to tell me what I did wrong?
Piss off a mod or someone with multiple accounts lol?
Probably your last line 'Flame on fanboy' Should not poke the bear
Nimblest-Assassin: Mods here are all Sony haters. You'll just have to live with it.
@iforgotmylogin No surprise this is coming from a Pokemon Nintendo fanboy.
Shame on you disgracing us Pokemon fans. Seriously though Sony in general pretty much rocked at gamescom. Cool new downloadable titles and PS3 IP's, and they finally upped their game with showcasing the Vita's stuff. Good times
They can rock all they want, I’m still not buying one yet. PS Vita is so close to a price drop i can smell it.
Nah... that was just me... I farted. Seriously, I this holiday we'll see the AC and CoD bundles at $250 and a base Vita on its own for $200.
R u really waiting to buy a vita just to save a nickel? i bet if u did buy it, u would feel the money was well spent.. The moment i turned it on to set up the language & all other settings for it i knew right away that it was special & will get the attention it deserves.. I laugh when ppl say its going to die
To answer your question Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes. The vita is not doing too good in sales right now. that why sony mostly talked about it at E3 and Gamescon. Not to mention they are not really a lot of games that i like out for it yet. So yes i will wait for the PS vita to drop in price. Because 9 times out of 10 its coming. Another note, i would buy a PS3 before a vita for that price anyway.
i see your point.. Sony is most likely going to drop the prices on memory before the system tho.. Thats the only problem i have with it is the memory being so expensive.. The system is worth more than the $250 so that might not drop for a very long time..
Killzone and Tearaway looked awesome, but blops... I dunno. Looked pretty bad graphics wise, but gameplay who knows.
Sony has always been about quality content str8 across the board, ps3 hasn't stop rocking ever since 2008 and the vita is a baby ps3 and American media loves to hate on good sh*t once it ain't made in the usa. Microsoft wasn't at the show because halo 4 is out this year and a new gears next year that money is secured:
The odd thing is, none of the systems are made in the USA, all in Chinese factories. If some of the hate does ineed stem from Sony being a Japanese company they should realize how many US jobs Sony creates. Look how many dev teams are US based, it's crazy.
The PS3 launched in 2006, are you saying it sucked for two years after it launched? Also, blaming the American Media for hating good "sh*t" is kind of vague, I mean the American media likes a lot of things. Microsoft wasn't at the show because they showed off what they wanted at E3, they are probably prepping for a reveal of their next console. If history repeats itself, they will hold their own show before E3 next year and show off the 720. Sony was in a state where they absolutely needed to show off Vita and Move, they didn't show much from either of those things at E3. It is strange that Nintendo didn't show up, since they actually have a new console out, but your rant against Microsoft and trying to blame American media is baseless, its the same American media that praised the PS1/PS2.
You're being intentionally daft. Why? Him saying it hasn't stopped rocking since 2008 isn't an indicator that it "sucked" prior to then. Gaming isn't black and white; you can suck, you can be below average, good, and great. In the context meant- and let's not pretend you didn't understand that- the PS3 became "great" in 2008... because you don't "rock" if you're just average, though you certainly don't "suck," either. Microsoft may have shown off what they wanted at E3, but they could have revisited those showings at GamesCom. They could well have shown new trailers/footage of everything they displayed at E3 with little effort, if only to keep it all on people's minds. They didn't, though. WHY was Sony in the state you claim? It's not as if we didn't know about all the other games present for the Vita at E3. The Move, I can agree with to some extent- I would agree more if it were as critical to Sony's success as the Kinect now is to Microsoft's- but any gamer worth his salt- admittedly, there aren't many here- knows that they showed off quite a bit for the Vita at E3. I'm confused. If it's not the American media pumping out all the doom articles for Sony and painting every product they develop as a failure, then what media is it? I mean, most of this hatred is in English, and seems to be coming from sites or people that are American. Are they all- even the companies- expats? Please explain that to me.
@Hicken You are so full of crap, I shouldn't even bother feeding the troll, but had Microsoft shown the same stuff they did at E3, people would be complaining about that. Microsoft will never please ignorant fanboys like you, fanboys who believe the media is out to get Sony, and probably believes sites are paid off by the competition. Sad really...
People thought Sony were just going to let the PS Vita die without putting up a fight? HA, not a chance. Some people need to have a little bit more faith in Sony. The PlayStation press conference yesterday was incredible. It made me a very happy PS Vita owner, PS3 owner and PS Plus subscriber.
confirmed purchases from me: Ratchet and Clank Full Frontal Assault, Sly Cooper Thieves in Time, Guacamelee, Little Big Planet, Assasins Creed Liberation, Tearaway, Killzone Mercenary, Ragnarok Odyssey and Soul Sacrifice. i need to see more of Snapshot and Call of Duty to decide if im going to buy them or not.
The coolest thing i seen for the vita at gamecon was the ps1 classics. Still getting AC for it but other then that what was so great about it. Thats cool if you buy a game for your ps3 you get the vita copy free but thats really not that big unless your on the go alot. Really tho show me the games and killzone and blackops aren't going do it. I'm not here to make fanboys happy i'm here to play unique games i can't get anywhere else. I'm glad your all happy but i'm not seeing those most have games IMO.
im happy that theyre doing the cross play packages.. I personally wouldnt buy both versions of the game but now that i only need 1, ill be alot happier.. Its a smart move to boost memory card sales too.. I already need a new 1 cuz my 16GB is full lol.. Knowing im getting my ps1 games & cross play games, ill definitely have to cough up the money for a 32GB card
