It's cool to hate Vita for some reason. Whatever, their loss for the people who pass it up. I've owned it since launch and am STILL immensely satisfied with it.

Haha, there are quite a few who have more than I do.

jujubee881955d ago

I wish I could have that many. :(

Sometimes, I miss my bubbles. I had eight of them a few years ago. They were cute. Each had it's own name. Then they were taken from me, never to return no matter how many people bubble me up. *sniff*

Anyway, I'm a little at a loss as to what all these "tech demo's" are they're referring to? They mention Little Deviants and COD. I never played LD, but how on earth is COD a tech demo? The article never explains or elaborates.

I haven't had an issue myself with the Vita's lineup. I've played hands down the best games I've ever seen on mobile on my Vita. Uncharted still amazes me that I'm playing a game that close to the console version on a console. Gravity Rush is fresh and original, Rayman reminded me why I used to love platformers again and I haven't even had a chance yet to break out AC Liberation which I received for Christmas. Meanwhile, I keep finding myself going back to cool little downloadable titles like Retro City Rampage, not to mention I'm still playing PSP games on my Vita.

Anyone else with problems with "tech demo's" on the Vita?

There is this one dude I see here evey once in a while that has over 13 bubbles.

I've had a few minutes of spare time, and I spent them playing my Vita instead of my PS3.

I wish (well I know) more games come out. Can't wait to play NHL 14 on it!

Well said - I'm incredibly happy with mine, which I've had since launch in Feb. The article hardly helps - picking out two games, one of which was clearly a tech demo, and the other one of the worst games to release on any system in the last few months. The Vita has a good number of full-sized games for its time on the market. The likes of Gravity Rush, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, LBP, AC3:Liberation, Unit 13, Playstation All-Stars, Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter are hardly tech demos.

I don't own one, but I played it in the store. It was nice, and they actually had demos of interesting games, unlike a certain other handheld. *cough3DScough* Seriously, how do they expect to show off the 3D aspect with games like NSMB2 and fashion designer, or w/etf that stupid little game is called.

Erm, anyway, the Vita seems pretty solid, and I'll probably get one 2-3 years into this generation, as is my custom.

sdozzo1955d ago

Immensely... no. but it is a nice handheld.

MastaMold1954d ago

If there wasn't so much negative energy surrounding this console it could actually do great. Of course it has it's flaws and maybe a gimmicky feature (back touch pad) but what console doesn't. Instead, we hyper analyse everything bad about the console. It's a great handheld and I think everyone should buy it. It starts off with slow sales and everyone thinks that it must be defective it's just as good as your tablet, phone, or your 3ds. I love my vita (despite the fact that it refuses to fit comfortably in my pocket)

PS vita has no games>PS vita has too many ports> psvita needz exclusivez> PS vita has too many tech demos> PS vita has....
aah shatap already.

Irishguy951955d ago (Edited 1955d ago )

I have one and I think it needs moar games. Unlike Ps3 and PC, There isn't an overabundance of games.

Too little games - Vita, WiiU
Enough games - Xbox(including multiplats)
Lotsa games - Ps3/PC

When I don't have something to play on it or there isn't new games consistently coming out on it. It needs more games

Snookies121955d ago

You're comparing Vita and WiiU neither of which have been out for a year to something like PS3 and PC which have had years for games to come out? Give it time man, they'll get plenty of games.

TheLastGuardian1955d ago

If you don't have something to play on it, it's because you aren't buying games for it. I have a sh**load of games on my Vita and not nearly enough time for them all. Of course, I spend a lot of time with my other systems too. There's a bunch of Vita games I'm holding off on buying because I just have too much to play on it already. If you really want to get some use out of your Vita, go buy Persona 4 Golden. Who needs games releasing consistently when you've got games that last you months?

Also " why Is P4G only for the PSVITA... Soul Sacrifice should not be an exclusive for the PSVITA, It Is too good!... I would prefer Tearaway on the big screen " etc...

The PSVITA is awesome!

SAE1955d ago

declassified was more like an app not a real game . it doesn't try to be one. the campaign/graphics and even gameplay were short and weak just like app games ..

but vita proved that it can handle ps1/psp/ps2 and even ps3 games with little downgrade in few things ...

1nsomniac1955d ago (Edited 1955d ago )

I think the author misunderstands what a tech demo is, because a game is poor it does not make it a tech demo. Despite how lacking the mentioned games are they are just that, lacking or poor quality games, not tech demos. They are however a good start to build from & hopefully a sign of things to build from & improvements further down its life cycle.

I was dead against getting a Vita purely because of Sonys poor attitude to its customer base this generation & all the negative press its got but I picked 1 up cheap & have to say I dont regret it, it's a great piece of kit & I always end up going back to it for a quick play.

GameBlinx1955d ago

I know exactly what a tech demo is, that is why I listed the definition.

I also said at the end that I rather not call any of the titles a tech demo.

People are claiming half the titles as tech demos, I rather just say that they are still testing the full ability of the Vita.

"There is still plenty of room and power for the Vita to grow."

Protagonist1954d ago (Edited 1954d ago )

I´m on different forums, but this is honestly the first time I´ve read about games being tech demos for the Vita.

How about some articles about the vast amount of games for the Vita or an article about a few ports is not a bad thing concidering we got P4G and that games for the PSVITA actually has great overall scores according to Metacritic.

Hicken1954d ago

What people? All any of us here have seen calling games "tech demos" is you.
