Don't F******g buy one then and f**k o**

stecarter911815d ago (Edited 1815d ago )

See below and I think you missed my point...

Abash1815d ago

If you didnt read the article it's essentially saying "It's cool to hate on the Vita for little to no reason and we're trying to get hits!"

badjournalism1815d ago

No, he's right. If you don't like it, don't write an article pretending to be interested just so you can bash it and don't buy it. Very very simple stuff.

Nimblest-Assassin1814d ago (Edited 1814d ago )

No the point is pretty clear... today your site posted two articles, solely designed for getting hits

This and the all-stars article about it not doing well in the Us BASED ON PRE ORDERS?! IS THAT A JOKE? WHAT DEFINES A GAME DOING WELL? DOES IT NEED A 100,000 PREORDERS? A MILLION?

Also, the way you guys write your articles, its like you are trying to annoy or aggrevate readers.

Lets take your all-stars article

"They’re banking a lot into their new IP (Super Smash Brawl rip off cough*) PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, created by new developer team Super Bot."

OH LOOK ANOTHER PUBLICATION THAT KEEP'S POINTING OUT THE GAME IS SIMILAR TO SMASH! HOW COMPLETELY ORIGINAL!

And this one... with out owning a vita,are complaining about the games... You know its a nice option to be able to play PS1 games? Did you not pay attention to gamescom, when they said there are more games coming? Did you not see cross buy? Did you not see cross play?

DID YOU NOT REALIZE THAT IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS, THERE IS A BIG VITA TITLE COMING OUT DURING EACH MONTH?

September-LittleBigPlanet vita
October- Assassins creed liberation
November- Playstation all stars and COD(not a great example)
December- Need for Speed
So before you criticize the vita... make sure you have one, or you are caught up with the news... you know... the sh*t you are supposed to report on

YOU WOULD THINK THAT SOMEONE REPORTING ON NEWS... WOULD HAVE A GOOD IDEA ABOUT GAMES COMING OUT? DON'T YOU THINK?

What you want Mario on the vita? Is that the big game you are looking for mr. nonspecific

Yeah, when you right articles like this, and your site is inspired by a nintendo joke... its hard to take your "opinion" seriously
Every time I use this site, its filled with half-assed uniformed opinion pieces rather than actual news

Hell, it seems that any idiot can be a video game journalist, as the line between journalist and blogger are almost the same

This article is one of the many, that prove that video game news is a joke

jadenkorri1814d ago

this is why video game journalism is such a joke. We'll never be taken seriously with this trash roaming around.

Gen0ne1814d ago

@Nimblest-Assassin: Damn... Gave him both barrels on that one huh?

@stecarter91: Well... dare you have a come back for that shellacking? It's probably in your best intrest you don't. He nailed it.

MAJ0R1814d ago

I think most people's problem (and mine too) with the Vita is that most of those games you listed that are coming out are much better when played on consoles. The Vita is basically a portable console.

When I play handheld games,I want to play handheld games. Not console games. This is one of the reasons why the 3DS has been so successful. It doesn't try to be something that it's not. It doesn't try to imitate a console.

Nimblest-Assassin1814d ago (Edited 1814d ago )

@MAJOR

"The Vita is basically a portable console."

Umm...yeah... isn't that the point? Its supposed to be a portable console... thats why its called a handheld

Also, a majority of 3ds games are also better on console

Zelda, Kingdom Hearts, Resident evil, Street Fighter, mario, metal gear, etc

Also what makes a handheld game a handheld game? Is it a game I can play for 5 minutes? Whats this definition you are using? Something I play while taking a sh*t?

What you are complaining about on vita, can be used directly on 3ds.

Your argument makes no sense... and before you say Im being biased... I bough a 3ds on launch, not the vita...hell I got a second 3ds after my first was stolen and I play the vita more

Tito081814d ago (Edited 1814d ago )

@ MAJOR- Why is it the 3DS has games that are for the most part console games??? Plus for your information, there's the second stick add-on attachment so yeah, 3DS has games that are in reality console games, just because it has a touch screen?? So there's no point in making the Wii U controller with a screen on... Most gameboy Advance games have being for the most part console games, look at all those Mario Advance games that are in reality SNES ports, there was even a reviewer from ROTR who claimed New Super Mario Bros 2 is for the most part the first, saying he felt he bought the same game twice, btw, that game isn't too far from being a console game for your information, even the DS had old console games!!!!!

-Super Street Fighter 4 came from the consoles
-Zelda Ocarina Of Time is a console game
-Resident Evil isn't any different from the console versions
-Mario games have always being from consoles, that Mario 3D Land could be easily be done on the Wii, a console
-Sega Game Gear games can be easily be done on consoles
Even the Neo Geo Pocket had games that aren't different from console games
-Last but not least, the Gameboy Handhelds all the way through GBA are similar to console games

Honestly, there isn't such a difference between console & handheld games... & there isn't anything wrong with playing console games on a handheld, that to me is a great thing... That has being a Nintendo's fanboy excuse of justifying his handheld of choice, so please, don't use that lame bullshit ass line anymore, it got too old already, because that has beinga criticism against the PSP, & look, almost 80 million units sold!!!!

Irishguy951814d ago

Feel both bad and good for you/ Nice one with the hits/ But damn/

Aceman181814d ago

this article and the people agreeing with it just proves that this generation has been the worst ever.

MAJ0R1814d ago

I'm just telling you what most people have as a perception of the Vita. Sure I know a lot of the Sony guys will disagree, but that is the major perception of the Vita.

The 3DS simply has more games that people want to play on the go. Vita is doing horribly no matter what way people try to spin it. I just told you the reason it's doing so bad.

ziggurcat1814d ago

@ stecarter91:

no, i think he got your point. you should just go back to whatever you were doing before trying to be a gaming journalist because you're clearly not good at that.

writing an article whining about a handheld device that has barely been on the market for 6 months, but has a s***load of content coming in the near future is a little ridiculous.

if you're the nintendo fanboy as someone else had pointed out, then i bet you were quick to defend the 3DS when people were complaining about that system when it was just barely into its lifespan...

Sarcasm1814d ago

Opinion: stecarter91: stop f*****g around with dumb articles

The word 'off' really did not need starring out; it's not a swear word ;)

OhMyGandhi1814d ago

it was just the -way- he said it, it could have been used as a swear.

thank you for censoring it, I have sensitive eyes.

Silver-Hawk1815d ago (Edited 1815d ago )

So the writer of this article is pretending he's interested in a vita so he can complain about it. The vita has the same amount of games for it that the 3ds has garnered in a year and a half. People love to complain about non-issues. I think people would rather Sony releases all features and games for the vita on day one instead of spreading out content and software. The vita launched with 30 games and over time have been releasing new games and features through firmware. The vita is now able to play ps1 classics and a few other things which is good because it actually sparks new interest in the device by a lot of gamers.

This article seems to be written by an imbecile . I can't wait for his article about 3ds lacking new games or the 3ds not having a second circle pad

stecarter911815d ago

Thanks, your feedback is appreciated. I thought suppression of thoughts and beliefs went out way back when but I see you still revel in those ideologies. I take my hat off to you, sir.

Freakazoid20121814d ago

So he does to the Vita what you do to the Wii U...Glad to know you think he is an imbecile for being just like you.

BrutallyBlunt1814d ago (Edited 1814d ago )

The system is not over-priced. Not when you compare it to the PSP when it came out and how much that was and the Nintendo 3DS and wht it offers and what it can do. However when you get to the $250 barrier and add memory cards that are essential and come at a premium price, the overall cost goes up. Still, it does offer good value but that market for a portable gaming device that is over $200 may be shrinking.

Maybe it's marketing that's hurting Vita. After all Sony has struggled with marketing this generaton. Does Nintendo market it's handheld better? Does the 3DS offer more games that are better suited for portable gaming?

I don't really have an answer why Vita is't a hit. They had a decent line-up of games but since launch there hasn't been much at all. Maybe it didn't have any must have games. Even if Uncharted was, that game cost $50, that's a lot to ask for a portable game.

What is clear is there is traction going on and it's not good traction. There is a cloud of uncertainty and lots of negativity surrounding how Vita is another mis-step for Sony. A company that used to be on top is now looking for something to get the ball going again. All i know is they had better get a more positive vibe going before they launch the PS4.

Blankman851814d ago

Such strong anger in this one. You need to take a holiday Gribble, N4G articles are killing you.

fei-hung1814d ago

We banned HHG for being (over) enthusiastic and we choose to have crap like this instead?!

How do we report articles and sites who constantly talk crap?

Cryptcuzz1814d ago

Something you need drastically it seems for trolling.

Look it up what it means in Latin and Italian and you'll understand.

The Vita is Sony's successor to the PSP and is currently not selling as well as the 3DS but it doesn't matter to me. I bought one at launch as well as my brother and have enjoyed playing it since. Some games we have are; Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, Uncharted GA. Mortal Kombat, Gravity Rush and Virtua Tennis. Recently we have been revisiting some PS one classics. He is replaying Final Fantasy 7 and I am replaying Final Fantasy 9. Good times.

Even though it has not sold as well as the 3DS, you can bet your ass it will pick up major steam once more games made specifically for it are released (Tear Away for example)

Come Tokyo Game Show, I expect the Vita to get major momentum from the show for the games to be announced.

The possibilities are endless: Monster Hunt? Metal Gear? ZOE? Final Fantasy? Original RPG's? Gravity Rush 2? Kingdom Hearts? Dragon Quest? Resident Evil? Gran Turismo? Original New IP's? I am sure I'm missing some other possibilities here but you get the point.

Question. Why is it people still keep saying they could buy a PS3 for the money they spend on the VITA? I could buy a Wii for the money I spend on a 3DS but a Wii is not portable is it. And as for the launch line up being a joke if I remember the 3DS starting line up was an even bigger joke and people still ran out and brought it. If your best game is a remake of a decades old game I think that counts as a joke. Sony handed us a whole bunch of games at launch and they need time to get more. And we already saw that we are getting a lot more. So I know PlayStation fans don't have the most patience in the world but all systems need time to build their titles. No system has ever launched with great games from the start not even the 3DS.Developers like MM need a little time to get used to the VITA's strong points. So shouting 'I want my games so stof f***king around!' isn't really going to help

Couldn't have said it better myself.

You are a wise man. Well said.
