This week on Gamertag Radio: *Why Godfree is selling his PS Vita *Wii U games for early 2013 *Exclusive Podcast Interview with Wrekonize of ¡Mayday! *Review: Dont Starve (Steam) *Fanmail *The return of True or False segment
Regards "Why Godfree is selling his PS Vita" I would wait for E3 before making the decision. Some big games are coming out this year (Killzone to name one example). You don't wan't to sell it then regret it when those dates are fully confirmed and if the PS4 is announce I predict increased functionality with it. I am expecting a lull in information between now and E3 because I see Gaikai being a huge thing for the Vita at E3
Godfree is probably one of those spaz impulsers that buys>sells>buys a gaming machine like three or more times each gen. Just sit on it and see what develops, or you'll regret getting rid of it. Especially with stuff like Soul Sacrifice on the horizon. Sony haven't announced much for the Vita in 2013 and this is the year that they have to make it shine. Only a fool would think that the calendar year will be bare. If by this time next year, there still isn't anything on the Vita horizon that piques your interest, sure go ahead and get rid of it. For me, I have a feeling that this is going to be the same JRPG powerhouse that the PSP was, and that's all that I need it to be. God Eater 2, Soul Sacrifice, and about a dozen more JRPGs are in the pipeline and just waiting to be localized. Those are just the ones that we know about too.
Final Fantasy complete sale on the Psn next week (EU)! Stock up!
Oh you mean like 360 owners, buy the first machine, it breaks, buys another one, sells it for another one, buy's another 360 with hdmi. He has probably kept his 3ds for Mario though.
I would totally wait until E3 but then again maybe all the attention at E3 will be going towards the next PlayStation
I think Gaikai will apply to both systems and is also a good way to bridge the conference between the Vita and the PS4 with talk about how it will interact with the PS4
Sony can't afford to just let PSV fade away in the sand by not having E3 announcements for the handheld
I agree,before anyone jump the gun on the Vita they should wait after destination playstation and E3 to blow over. @SAND-MAN I see that unlikely,there will def be a good amount of coverage focused on the next playstation but i don't think they'll leave the Vita out cold with the current state it's in.At this point i think sony realizes that they need to take action with the Vita like nintendo did with the 3ds. Well that's what i think anyways.
The 3Ds is much better why I know I have both !
@lfclee a matter of opinion....
@lfclee - Yeah, I have both as well, and as great as the 3DS is, I'm sorry to say it's no Vita. As a whole, the Vita is probably my favorite console of all. All it needs are more quality games to come out for it. As a system, it's just wonderful.
Get rid,Sony have failed in the Vita the 3ds has game after game Castlevania/Monster hunter 4/EX troopers ect ect.
You do realize that the vita hasn't been on the market as long as the 3ds so there is a gap between okay games and excellent ones.
I'm all for Monster Hunter 4, but that Castlevania game on 3DS looks garbage. There's no way you'd be bigging it up if it was a Vita exclusive
@zebramocha- What the hell? All those disagrees you got on a FACT? It HASN'T been out nearly as long as the 3DS has, how can people disagree with a fact? Wait... N4G, right... The site is great, but man the people...
"Why Godfree is selling his PS Vita." Heroin is a helluva drug. It ain't cheap either.
let him buy another and boost sales.
That Killzone games looks terrible, Tearaway looks WAY BETTER.
What? I know it's all down to preference, but saying that they look "terrible" is just waaaaay off base. I like what I saw of Tearaway, but Killzone is a lot more advanced technically and to me, it looks better.
they havent even shown off enough of the game to even brand it terrible....
Killzone Mercenary looks just like console Killzone. Amazing. Even more so by the fact that the Vita can produce console quality graphics. Even 360 cant do Killzone graphics.
Why would you sell a something when you know will become even more valuable in the future? I am a "Nintendo Fan-boy" BUT EVEN i KNOW that the VITA is going to be important to future PS4 owners. Whatever, have fun buying it again once the PS4 comes out. It was the same way for the people who sold their Wii's before Zelda: Skyward Sword came out- they had to spend more money just to re-buy the system they had already owned. (But in the end, it is just a gamble either way. I hope he made the right choice for himself.)
When I saw the title for this page the first thing that came to my mind was... "Why I don't care. Story at 11."
I sold a console once... didn't write an article.
I would never sell a system unless I bought a succeeding system that has backwards compatibility.
I would at least wait to see whats announced at Destination Playstation. But thats just me.
That would be too logical.
Lego city/smash bros and Monster hunter 4 on 3ds will be the end of Vita just my guess.
I don't know about Lego City. It looks cool for Wii U but I tend to not trust handheld games developed alongside console versions.
I don't care, said Pierre, I'm from France
You took the time to follow a link and comment just to tell us that you don't care?
Following the link and typing that out took less than a minute. It takes longer to masturbate.
Too much information.
i heard that line on south park
Don't worry vita fans , just vote down and move on. It's the same monotonous console bashing as always...
Im selling my vita....just to buy the red psvita..dont you love me haters???
There's a red one?!? Selling mine to get it.
Sarcasm aside, you have to admit the Soul Sacrifice Vita looks pretty awesome.
@admiralvic Just don't look at the floor ;)
I fear that this will be the norm if Vita doesn't pick up in the next 6 to 9 months.
Flame bait article. If he hate mature quality handheld gaming, then sell and move on. Why make an article? Down vote (how'd this get in?)
It got in since it's hate towards Sony.
Lol. Any statement or action that appears negative towards Sony is automatically trashed by fanboys as flame bait or trolling. Details and facts don't matter at all.
I'm a fan of no one. I'm a GAMER, I own all, love all of my systems. So when I see an article like this all it's doing is spewing bullshit about his opinion and trying to make something look bad. I hated it with the 3ds,360,ps3,wii,wiiU,psp,ect. This article is what wrong with the gaming world, too many fanboys or flam bait floating around. If this idiot wants to sell a system that's only a year old ( tell me 1 system that hit its prime after a year...) before e3 mind you than go right ahead sell it give it to someone who enjoys games and out of the hands of some dick who's too ignorant to understand how the gaming world works.... I don't feel like explaining how it works so, short version : systems sales numbers doesn't matter in its first cycle nor does its game library....( wii, best seller least games) its after the price drop do they begin to really pay attention to numbers. Devs will always make games... It thier job, if the psp had so many devs making games for it then why ignor the vita.the ds out sold it but we still seen big name titles like gta. Same for any system. That's why this is flame bait IMO its irrelivent crybaby bs.
Well said, Kingthrash! Bubble up! If that guy doesn't want his Vita, he can give it to me. I want Tearaway.
Theres at least 4 games that im interested in that are coming out soon so i think i will keep my Vita for the time being. Im dying to see more of Tearaway and Killzone mercenaries and Sly 4.
^ buying sly 4 for ps3 and get the vita version free..only 39.99 thats a smart buy
I was about to buy Ni No Kuni, forgot that this title is cross play/buy. Thanks for reminding.
Why I'm not selling my PS vita...Soul Sacrifice!
I'm not quite sure I understand this whole mentality. The Vita has TONS of games. Hell, I have a full screen and a half filled of games on my Vita, and some being the best games I've played in a while (Gravity Rush, Persona 4 Golden, PSAS, LBPVita, Retro City Rampage, etc). For example, the games I own on my Vita at least triple the games I own for 3DS. Yet I'm not running around yelping about how the 3DS is dying. It's just that I'm not interested in replaying games I've played since the NES/Gameboy days (although the new Pokemon game looks fantastic).
"For example, the games I own on my Vita at least triple the games I own for 3DS. Yet I'm not running around yelping about how the 3DS is dying." Because you'd be idiotic to say the 3DS is dying retro active since MH acquisition. I'm not freaking interested on any 3DS games except KH3D, RE and now Project X Zone (w/c is already gonna be ported and I'm getting the PC version [RE]).. but at this rate, devs are likely to flock much faster on the 3DS.. So it wouldn't be hard to comprehend people jumpshipping (or consider first to buy) to a more "stable" and cheaper system ... unless you're Sony fan (<-- w/c I am not using as something negative).
Im keeping my vita
bought mine on release, love it! keeping mine till the end!!!!!!!!!!!
If you're not pleased with it, give it a discounted second hand price so that a fellow gamer who could enjoy it for what it is just like myself can buy and play the hell out of that little monster. I on the other hand will keep my Vita as I know that Killzone Mercenary will be a blast and offer the best ever multiplayer experience on any handheld device out there. It'll be great to go through a round or two at nights while resting on the couch at the same time after a hard day's work.
Meh.. I'm giving my VITA past E3.. I'll be nice and give it the whole 2013 at least :P Maybe they'll announce a new Miku game before the year ends.. but then again the devs were disappointed by the VITA sales and implied it was the last VITA PJD game.. >.< No Western One Piece 3DS getting another new "rare" title PJZX No RE Revelation port (but have on PS360/WiiU) ..T.T Every minute, Sony has to announce something bigger this Feb and E3.. and then there's tom's Nintendo Event..
Sometime I think why do they post these topic. Make my brain hurt. PS Vita just alittle slow but once pso2 and ffx and my MH4 come out sale will go up.
well vita is announced on a month and where there is not too much interesting games on handheld and peak of smartphones i guess..so i think it would be nice to announce bunch of games this e3 since everybody now wants to go with buttons on their smartphones
Why would you buy something around it's launch when it has few games, just to sell it later when it starts getting games? Obviously he has the internet, he knew what he was getting into.... obvious flame bait is obvious. VITA FTW
is sucks to have your console put down unfairly right? wii u has been out 2 months and some of you jumped all over it saying it was doomed. so take it easy cause it sucks when people don't give our systems enough time to get going.
Oh another "Why" article. *Sigh*...
Why I'm Selling My PS Vita" Because you're stupid
its now a tradition for every playstation system to take 2 or 3 years for there systems to hit there stride. Vita is just now hitting the 1 year mark soon. Im confident the vita will really start kicking ass over the next couple of years
If there is one thing i learned from the past, its never to sell a gaming system once you own it. Every system has some classics and the time will come you want to play them again. Besides, ps vita is still young in its life cycle, there is shitloads great games to come (or not, we'll see, but i believe!).
Last time I sold anything it was COD. I never sell consoles or handhelds.
I've had a DS twice, sold it twice, and regretted it both times. Same with my PSP. Every other system I've gotten- save for my Atari- I still have. I'm not too into selling off my games, either, though I've had to do so a few times. I'm pretty picky about the games I buy, so I feel comfortable not selling them afterwards. I try to be prudent with my purchases.
some of you guys always fall for it.he wont sell it,its just to get hits with this joke articles -why I will sell this why that?hahaha but its good at least for me to have a laugh.
There is no need to sell your PSVita you don't get me more then you paid for it, and your least what I understand stuck with whatever memory cards you bought for it. If you don't play it keep it charged for random events like: plane, or bus rides, or gaming alittle in bed before sleeping, or my personal reason, "when the power goes out."
because it has NO GAMES?
sold mine about a month ago no need keeping something that i wasn't having fun with.
