The Vita’s Free-To-Play Library Is Making Me into a Casual Gamer

Cheat Code Central's Josh Wirtanen writes: "I’ve recently ventured into the Vita’s free-to-play section of the PlayStation Store, and there I’ve found my new addiction." (Jetpack Joyride, PS Vita, Treasures of Montezuma Blitz, Zen Pinball 2)

Jetpack, Blitz And Pinball are three shit games. I didn't buy a Vita for phone Games.

You cant expect sony to put most of their big titles for free, specially since we dont have a big library yet. The small games are fun and i enjoy them on my vita. You should appreciate the small things we get specially because they are FREE

You should get PlayStation Plus. They give you many great big title games. I am now loving MGS HD Collection and I just finished MGS2 Sons Of Liberty and I am playing MGS3 Snake Eater.

Best games I have ever played.

Naw, I understand the importance of smaller titles etc. I was just giving it a hard time. They are nice titles, but really I'm not looking for free games. I'm looking for blockbuster... which is coming (slowly but surely).

I agree, I'm loving the vita, my wife's loving it even more than me -which is always a good thing :)

Sony has said in the past that they are going to move ahead with free-to-play with the PS4 and Vita. Thing is, Vita already has an excellent free-to-play game: Phantasy Star 2. So, I don't think the future of the Vita's free-to-play library will be limited to smartphone games only...

I honestly phone games are a very important life cycle in Vita being able to breach into the market as a multi functional multimedia device.

I don't think the console should be raised on it, but I think having the cell phone games, indie and home games in one package is awesome.

Also it's free to play how can you bitch about that?

Do you get angry at every free coffee you get from McDonalds and say "I didn't come to MCDicks for a coffee but for nuggets!"

pfft redonkulous.

I would love to see more f2p games like Sonic Dash, sonic jump and SImpsons tapped.


Still waiting for killzone though xD

casual gamers don't even know what free-to-play mean. lol

The more money we pump into this crap the more commerically viable it will become for developers and the games industry. If you want to see games become something to truly take seriously, you shouldn't promote this stuff.

It's only making you the author, a casual gamer, because you choose to play it, I have these games installed but I haven't touched them since I downloaded them, I keep them because I have the space, and maybe one day when I have no other game play, Ill play them as a backup, but it's your fault

i had to delete most of the free games i downloaded on my vita.. My 32GB card was maxed out because of how many i got.. Its not turning me into a casual gamer though.. Theres lots of core games for PSN, PSP, & PSV available through PS Plus that i have for it...

If they become the ONLY games you play...

But I play the casual stuff and the core stuff. PS1 classics and PSP games. Vita games and PSN games.

I've got plenty of core games to play, so I don't worry about becoming casual.
