Can the handheld become something more?
by Jayden Williams
Despite having a robust and varied library of games available for it, the PlayStation Vita risks being nothing more than an expensive emulator for games already available elsewhere.
Every week, following the PlayStation Network update, I scan over the new additions to the Vita’s store – provided there are any – and while some exclusive games may pop up here and there, by and large I often see games that are either new additions to the PSOne roster or cross-buy PlayStation 3 titles.
Okay, so before I go further I’ll come out and say I’m actually a huge supporter of the PlayStation Vita. I like the system and I like the games that are available on it. And I see where Sony’s coming from wanting to present it to gamers as a PlayStation 3/4 on the go.
The only thing is, most of us don’t want that. And the sooner Sony change direction the better off the Vita will be.
