Excellent ammunition to troll the trolls at Gamespot. ;D

And look at the comment section on that site, so many haters... Why do people hate the Vita with such a passion anyway? One guy says that the Vita is like a clean restaurant that only serves 20 different kinds of dog turd. =/

Judging by what I read in those comments, and comments elsewhere, people seem to use the argument that it's software that makes hardware. No, it's software that makes hardware appealing, but if hardware is good, hardware is good, and no one should take that away from the Vita.

Having got a 3DS on launch day, and a Vita, I can safely say Vita's first year on the market has been far better than the 3DS' first year on the market, software wise. The 3DS has definitely picked up steam but up until about November 2011 the software line up was just unacceptable.

While I think Vita could benefit from moor high profile exclusives, similar to the 3DS' best 3rd party games (Kingdom Hearts and Resident Evil, I'm looking at you), that'd be great. For now however, Vita is delivering, and I really, really don't understand the internet wide hate for the device.

Well Said

I have said in the past that Sony is repeating the unfavorable PSP stuff with the PSV


they are also repeating the good & favorable PSP stuff at least for me as a gamer - first and foremost. (i am looking at you immature sales-gasm dickwagon whores!)

particularly in the hardware future proofing department & the action games department RPG, Adventure, etc

looking at the PSPs blooming performance from time to time, PSV is on track to be PSP's successor as the RPG King platform.

This identity of the PSV is shaping up very well slowly but surely & Nintendo is trying to take that identity away.

The games line up is really growing & growing on me...


Sony needs to step their game up on marketing campaign & stop relying on hardcore loyal fanbase for marketing, advertising, sales, & word of mouth promotion.

Damn you Sony! Do your PR part!

Sony needs to advertise a price cut on the unit & memory cards ... even if it is just a little price cut.

A price cut is a price cut in the eyes of consumers & enuff to compel curiosity or purchase. Basic psychology. Sony & PlayStation ain't the premium expensive brand it was once before. Why dwell on the past?

And where are games for children?
the AAA titles from 1st party developers?
that cable or wireless AV Out?

Owning a Vita for 8 months now it definitely is Gaming Gadget of the Year. I use it everyday if it playing games, surfing the interwebs, Youtube, Netflix always something to do on this device.

I think it's just the price. Having my Vita for half a year and playing practically only on it for six months (I don't have much time to play PS3 at home), I can't see any more reason for haters to hate. Because games are there for Vita.

And it is totally worth it

Hardly surprising, what else could it really have been that released over the last year?

G20WLY1479d ago (Edited 1479d ago )

What about the 'new and improved' 3DS? That would have been considered too, right?

Marquis_de_Sade1478d ago

I'll give you that, but it was always inevitable that completely new hardware would win over a revision. The Vita is fully deserving of the victory as it's a brilliant piece of tech, it's just a shame people seem (understandably) reluctant to shell out for it.
