LEGO Lord of The Rings For Vita Is Another Cheap Port

It looks like the upcoming LEGO Lord of The Rings will be another sour disappointment for PS Vita owners. (LEGO Lord of the Rings, PS Vita, PS3)

Sad bad truth.

But imagine how angry 3DS owners should be. They get the same version, but it's even worse.

So its by Tt who made lego batman 2 and spy hunter .
WTH they keep doing that .. just stop making games on VITA .
or get it done right .

Isn't it TT Fusion who are responsible for handheld versions? They're the idiots behind the last few ones that were on the PSP. Terrible games they were too.

Was a Lego game really suppose to be so high profile for the Vita?

Lego Batman 2 was s*it on the VITA .
there was no open world and the cutscanes are crap .

So this mantra of developers being lazy is not goint away anytime soon with news like this coming out. The Vita from what i understand is so easy to develop games for with very cheap dev kits to boot yet some developers are not taking full advantage of the hardware given to them.

There should be no excuse for this kind of game development. Either put out your best effort or don't even bother.

Of course the Vita isn't the only system that suffers from this, every system has this problem at some points.

The "lazy developer" argument is even lazier.

Why spend more than has been forecasted in terms of sales. Game development is a business. If spending a few million more making a game wont translate into a greater profit margin then why would you?

Sales are based on the quality of games. I wanted to buy LEGO Batman and LEGO Harry Potter for my Vita (because I like platform games on handhelds and I kinda like those LEGO platform games), but when I looked at the quality of ports, I've changed my mind.

Do not buy this crap. Don't support lazy devs.

I was hoping this wouldn't happen again but who am I kidding I knew it would. I love Lego games and I bought the first two for the vita but I think I'm done. I refuse to get the console one, it just feels better on a handheld! I'd pay 50 dollars for this game just to see them get it right. Oh we'll I can spend 40 dollars on a better game made in a much better fashion specifically for the vita

I'm going to get the game when it's 20 dollars down the line. Why should we pay 40 dollars when the DS version is 30. If you are just going to port the game, charge the same price for the cheaper version.

Wait seriously?! Man what a rip! Hp Legos is 16 dollars so ill wait too best idea I have heard all day

This is a letdown. I was excited to play the whole trilogy Lego style, but it's an insult to port games on hardware that's capable of extremely much more.

Sad but true. The quality of ports is the only reason stopping me from buying LEGO games for Vita.

The LEGO games are what they are. For the most part I expect them to be the same across boxes.

I have various LEGO games on the the 360, PS3, and PSP because my kids love them. They have always delivered what we have come to expect.

I'm not looking for some unique Vita specific snowflake of a game if I end up picking up one of these products on the Vita. Just a solid portable LEGO experience comparable to other games in the series. If that's what they deliver I'll be happy and that's all I'd ever expect.

Not every single game needs to be highly specialized for the hardware, IMHO. I hate touch screen controls in games where it is not well implemented or doesn't make sense for example.

wow what lazy devlopers

The developers know the power of the Vita can easily run the console counter-part, but I think they are just too fucking lazy to do it.

Not buying till they learn to make use of the vita and stop being lazy asses :L
