One Year On And Still Don’t Want A PS Vita

Play Vault's Brian:

"As a huge fan of hardcore (for lack of a better term) mobile games I was incredibly excited about the PS Vita. Wi-fi, two thumbsticks, innovative PS3 connectivity and a touch screen? It seemed as though it had everything going for it. I figured I’d hold off on buying it right away though, adopt a wait and see style philosophy. Over the course of the next year I came to slowly realize that my seemingly perfect handheld system is actually a huge mistake" (PS Vita, Sony)

Read the tile a few times, It's like a grumpy child has written it.

'Me not want Vita mummy, whaaaaa!'

You keep reading that 'tile'. 'Tiles' can tell you a lot.

Fortunately, this article has been properly identified as 'opinion' so there is nothing to rant against because everyone is entitlted to their opinions. The author doesn't want a Vita so he shouldn't buy one. Maybe it's just me but there are many, many things that I don't want and will never buy but I never thought to write an article about them...oh well.

I WILL write about things that I like though. And I will take the time to list the games that I have enjoyed (am enjoying) on the Vita:

Persona 4 Golden
BlazBlue
Gravity Rush
Uncharted:GA
Sly Cooper: TiT
Zero Escape: VLR
Dokuro
LittleBigPlanet
Disgaea 3: AoD
Escape Plan
Rayman Origins
Lumines: ES

I am looking forward to:

Soul Sacrifice
Tearaway
Warriors Lair
Ys: Memories of Celceta
Valhalla Knights 3
Muramasa Rebirth

Bottom line, it all depends on what your personal preferences are. Do the research (there's plenty out there), shop around, and buy what you want.

Jon are u crazy posting your opinion on this site? That's not allowed

Thinking about getting one soon myself. Just thought I would make this comment and pretend that people cared. This blog post is pretty much just a recap/rant on things we've already heard a thousand times btw.

I just want them to cut the price of the 32GB memory card before I consider buying a Vita.

And why should we care?! F%!K OFF with these useless articles. If you don't like it, don't buy it. No need to spread your opinion.
TongkatAli  +   1079d ago
That is what they do. Nitpick, cry, nitpick, cry, rinse and repeat.
ElementX  +   1079d ago
Aren't you spreading your opinion by commenting on it?

The Market has spoken, look at Vita sales, nobody wants it, and that's a fact.
People have smart phones and tablets, and if you want a real handheld for your kid, you buy a DS or 3DS.
Sony had enough time to try to change the Vita death course,with price cuts or at least remove drm from memory cards,or allow more then one user per memory card.
Sony got punished,for all the restrictions on Vita, and that's a good thing.
You must be a uber fanboy, blind, or stupid to buy a Vita, sorry for harsh words, but it's the truth.

delboy, where's the thing you want to talk smack about the PS Vita system, you have the right to express you're opinion, but when you insult people because of their preferences or choices, you're stepping out of line, so as a PS Vita owner I say keep this in mind, look at the early years of the PS3, and look at it now, so my suggestion to you is: when you feel the need to insult people because of their preferences or choices of handhelds or home consoles for that matter, put that keyboard so far up your ass that you'll start to think about things before you say them.

Delboy's comment says it all:

"and if you want a real handheld for your kid, you buy a DS or 3DS."

He's right, I would never buy a Vita for my kids because they don't take care of their stuff :) Vita is too damn sophisticated (and expensive) for that. It's the hand-held for the discerning mature gamer :)

edit: spelling

Another conspicuous headline. Unless he's just come out of hibernation and didn't see the PS4 announcements.

Yes the memory cards cost to much but the PSV is a great device. Doesn't have all the games yet but there is some great games out there already. Sony will support the Vita just have to give it time.

Another doom and gloom...some people have no originality. To writer of this rant post...some friendly advice. A wise man once said "you should live your life leading the pack, not following the herd." let us know when you have something original to say.
WarThunder  +   1079d ago
Most Gaming site, Have no constructive articles. They only make bashing, ranting flamebite articles.
AkitAtikA7  +   1079d ago
Another negative article about the Vita, Jesus Christ cry me a freakin river....Damn good system they made, it beats the shit out of the nintendo 3ds in every single way. The games are waaaaay better then mobile phone games and 3ds games and are just shy of ps3 quality. As far as the games? They will come, especially since the announcement of the ps4 and remote play with Ps Vita...jackass.

I dont want any chicken nuggets should I write an article now explaining myself?
stuntman_mike  +   1079d ago
yes please do it would be infinitely more interesting than this article lol.
stuntman_mike  +   1079d ago
I took the plunge and ordered a vita it should be arriving today...cant wait :)
