IGN - All the PS4 news has one IGN viewer thinking of buying a Vita -- but is the time right?
Besides, do you really want to leave the fate of the platform up just up to little old me? ;-)
I love my vita and all the games I have for it.. but I just wished sony listened more to fans... like givins it some new IP's and more RPG.. And I'm not talking about dropping the price, just a little more games...
Well I've actually gone out and bought one after the February annoucnement of the PS4, that pretty much settled it for me. For people who aren't sure, maybe it's a good idea to wait - prices can only go down, and who knows - maybe there will be a PS4 + PSVita bundle?
Totally agree, it's the perfect time to get PSVita. Remote play alone will make PSVita a MUST HAVE, imagine playing all them PS4 games on PSVita's awesome OLED display:)
Yes and no....by this time next year, we will hear of games we can play via the Vita for PS4.... By that time, hopefully there are a few more Vita games as well.
God I want a Vita!
I do too, but with the up and coming PS4 my money needs to be locked to my wallet for a few months first :)
Same situation! Will deff get it eventually but gotta make sure my credit card can take the hit when my preorderd ps4 ships from amazon!
Wait for Black Friday (or Cyber Monday). That's what I did last year. Sony allowed Amazon and best Buy to sell it at a rediculously good deal. I got a Crystal White Vita, with Assassins Creed, PS All-Stars, free PS Plus, and a memory card all for LESS than I would have paid if I bought a Vita alone at any other time of the year--all this sexiness for only $179!!! That same Vita would have cost me damn near $250, not even including the free games and free ps plus and memory card. Not only that, but I was extatic to learn that since I already had PS Plus for about 2 years prior to getting a Vita, I learned that I already owned 80 (yes, you read right) games for my Vita waiting for me before I even purchased it. I had free PS One, PSP, and PS Mini games that were piling up, yet I never used them before. But once i had my new Vita, I was able to fill many of these games onto my new 32 GB memory card. Plus we now get full Vita games from PS plus--as long as u have PS plus, it's like your Vita is already paid for. Especially if you get your Vita during Black Friday or Cyber Monday on Amazon
No, i would have bought it in day one. Having a Vita is so cool.
I have one and i have no regrets getting it day one..i use it also to download some movies, music and transfer it to my pc or my phone..
Nope. Buy it for all the games it has (don't listen to the nonsense) and you'll be good to go when the PS4 releases.
I dunno. I get the feeling that we're going to be looking at a 'version 2' model somewhere down the line. Or a pricedrop.
Theres a 95% chance that there will be a price drop at Gamescom. Theres a reason the price of the Walking Dead Vita bundle wasn't announced. If ur a rational price conscious consumer, wait till August. If money is no object to you then get it now.
"Theres a 95% chance that there will be a price drop at Gamescom." Why are you assuming this? You're just pulling "95%" out of you behind. Sony also said 250 is the right price, and it's far more than fair. The memory stick price is the thing that's holding it down. The PSP launched at 250, and people thought it was fair for what they were receiving. Before the system was released, people were guessing it'd be 400-500 dollars! It's price is inexpensive for what it is. For someone with the name, "LogicWins", one would think you'd have decent logic. Smh.
Already have one :) Use it all the time.
*pauses hotline Miami* ......THIS^^^^.......*unpause*
How could it be too early to buy a standalone gaming device that also happens to work with an upcoming- also standalone- gaming device? If the Vita's primary function was as a peripheral for the PS4, you could make some sort of argument that it might be too early. But as it's its own device, with its own features and library, even ASKING that question is just silly.
well its IGN... what would you expect... last month in their preview with killzone mercenary the previewer complains that a single campaign mission is too long and its too good to be just on a handheld how ridiculous is that....IGN never ceases to amaze me
yeah lol I commented/ranted on that kz article....what self respecting gamer complains about long levels and finger cramps?....if a game gives me finger cramps it must be awsome....and the long levels....aren't these the same guys that ripped cod declass for its short levels...smh like I said before...for some reason ign wants to hurt the vita.
I should have known. Didn't take a look at the source- just went on the ridiculous title- but I could have guessed it'd either be IGN or kotaku simply by that. Oh, well. back to Muramasa before bed!
Got one, using it whenever I go abroad or travelling. Using it sparsely at home though.. Oh, also using it as a media device. It's defo not too early. Great value with ps+ too
Why buy it FOR PS4? Its an awesome stand alone device that will just get better with PS4. Honestly its better to buy it now so you recoup that cost by the time PS4 releases.
Vita is a worthy purchase on its own merits. If you really were one of the 0.001 % of people who were thinking about this way, though, it's fair to say we don't know enough of how well the Vita will work with the PS4 to want to buy it now. It certainly hasn't helped that Sony themselves haven't actually demoed the two together. Add to that the mixed performance of Vita - PS3 connectivity, and there you go. Sony go into detail how the tech would work together (and bypass issues between Vita and PS3) and actually demonstrate it in action. This argument can go both ways too, actually; based on how little we know, Vita owners may want to hold off buying a PS4.
Great time actually but make sure you can get enough money for the PS4 too haha
Id buy a Vita FOR Vita not FOR PS4.
you are definitely right about that, mate! ^_^
1. Buy a vita. 2. Sign up for Playstation Plus. 3. Download games for vita and ps3 and ps4. 4. Enjoy.
what would you expect from IGN, they always compare vita games to the console version not review the game with Vitas power like wipeout, they said it sucks for a handheld and now they say its too good for a handheld. It's never too early for vita, so buy it now you can and want!
Playing Virtue's Last Reward and I can say anyone who hasn't played it is missing out big time. Its just the latest one in a long line of great games I've been playing on my vita since getting one a few months ago. I don't think I've gone more than a 2 days without playing something on the vita and with PS+ you get a bunch of games to start you off. When Muramasa reaches (stupid shipping time, should've bought it digitally) and then Dragon's Crown launches I'll be even more engrosses in my vita. So no, its not too early to get one, get it now before the backlog gets intimidating, when PS4 launches I'm gonna be in some trouble, 3 different platforms (4 when I get my Xbox One next year) to play games on...when will I get the time.
How about gettin a Vita for the Vita?
Greg Miller's actually defending the VITA and on its "own" merits (buy/keep) not for Remote Play. The supposed Sony Fanboy, Moriarty, is suprisingly negative on the VITA; "It only has a few years left.", "What big games are announced for it other than Tearaway and KZM?" (I assume he thinks Freedom Wars is niche).
