Maybe a Vita pricedrop or something would be nice too.

I know Vita is great and all, but who really cares about those little handheld devices.... all we want is a PS4 at home... outside you can talk, drive, work or do other interactive things.. or just chill out from all those technological devices and jobs.. :) I know I will get disagrees, since any gamer should think like "more games the better" or like "more devices to play on the better"... anyways.. the main thing for me is PS4 and games on it at my home.. cant wait..

bjmartynhak1159d ago

I can't really disagree. I have a Vita, but I'm not one of those that complain that Vita has no games. It has more games than I have time to play on the go. And considering the other stuff you can do outside, the time for gaming reduces even more.

infamousinfolite1159d ago

I like my mobile gaming as it allows me to game on the move and with big titles such as Uncharted, Sly and many others I can enjoy great gaming on a handheld.

Craigatorian1159d ago

You're right, I was going to say that. The More games the better.

gaelic_laoch1158d ago

VITA - PS4 remote play is why I bought a VITA, now my wife need not nag me about being in another room playing, now she has me all evening while she watches her shows, my mind and attention shall be elsewhere though!

Drekken1158d ago

In reality anything Ps4 is for Vita too. I don't see the benefit of making Vita exclusives. Just make all games for the Ps4 and they will have remote play.

LoveOfTheGame1158d ago

What about those who have a Vita but aren't getting a PS4?

insomnium21158d ago (Edited 1158d ago )

@love

Anyone not getting a PS4 should have their heads checked. It seems to me that the fungus is spreading into their brains. LOL!

justastranger101158d ago

I just think the Vita deserves better treatment than what it is given by Sony.

Tru_Ray1158d ago

I would have to disagree. I have to ride the train everyday to work. So for me the Vita is a nice guilty pleasure when I am not reading my kindle.

I enjoy my vita right at home.I have a ps3 and 360. Sometimes its nice at night to sit up in bed and play my vita while my wife watches her shows on t.v. I put on headphones and play a game or watch netflix on it. I rarely take it on the go. Plus my kids enjoy it too.Consoles are nice but I enjoy my handhelds just as much.

TheFamous11158d ago

@bjmartynhak agreed. I like the Vita, but I can't find the need for me to spend the money on one. Maybe if I traveled a lot or rode a train/subway/bus to work etc. but when I'm out of the house I usually do not have time to play a video game.

crazyeightz1158d ago

I've never heard of such a thing. There are only two ways you will get disagrees on these boards, talk bad about Sony's console, or talk good things about Microsoft's console.

cedaridge1158d ago

I won't disagree with you but I do see the need for a "Vita" when I'm on a plane or maybe when I have some down time at work. So that is my reasoning for wanting a PS Vita, I just hope Sony announce a price drop and my PS4 is on the way, as well!

devwan1159d ago

Price drop on the memory cards would make me just as happy - support the existing users, especially the ps+ fans who can't justify those expensive cards just to play the games they already have queued up.

iPad1158d ago

Hopefully Sony have an in depth presentation about the PS4's UI.

With just a couple months left until these consoles are out, we have no idea how they work, per say.

LAZL0-Panaflex1158d ago

Damn it enough with vita! You got duped just admit it and move on. Who plays handheld in 2013 honestly?!?.......ps4!ps4!ps4! ps4! That's the only news I wanna hear about!.....that and Obama being impeached!!

dcj05241158d ago

Um, no. Lots of people buy handhelds. In the US not as much but in asain countries its a big deal. And if sony just freaking 'dropped' one of their consoles I would never buy from them again. The PSP wasnt on fire this time in its life but a year or two later it was a must own. You dont just 'drop' things. It damages your reputation. Seriously thats ridiculous.

solidt121158d ago

All of these games have been added to the PS4 Launch game list. All MMO's

Planetside 2
DC Universe Online
Blacklight retribution
Warframe
War Thunder

T21158d ago

@justastranger - At first I wasn't sure if your comment was from a vita user who is getting impatient, or a troll. then i saw your username. Troll, check.

justastranger last 10 posts summed up - Sony failed with ps3, ps3 lags behind xbox in sales, never buying a ps4, xbox clouudz rule, ps4 only has 4.5 g ram.

... just a small summary, downvoted for trolling.

MazzingerZ1158d ago

And ironically this article became PSV focused :S

Back to topic, that sounds to me more launch games as I been expecting all this time, TGS will be the same, don't think MSFT has much more to show

Ausbo1158d ago

gamescom should be like the second E3 this year.

Both sony and microsoft will reveal more exclusives. Is spike airing any of these conferences??

FlunkinMonkey1158d ago

For a lot of these Xbox trolls to be calling out Sony fans on jumping in their articles, you guys are doing a fine job.

Nice new accounts SOBOTZ and JUSTASTRANGER10, you guys are so transparent..

MS have announced 13/15 out of their exclusives- spunked their load up the wall.. Sony have announced about 4 or 5 out of 20, you guys think this is going to be much different than this gen?? Multiple game of the year awards, with more coming out this late into the cycle while the 360 sits on its hands and plays stranger...

Blinded.. Stranded by a company who doesn't care at all about games.. The first couple of years for MS and the One will be the only years worth remember, such as they have proved with BOTH previous consoles.

iBlackyi1158d ago

Agree, but its 7 games out of 20 :)

Sony can't really win this one unfortunately. If they concentrate on the PS4, there will be articles about the lack of Vita titles and if they concentrate on Vita, there will be articles about how Sony are stupid and they should have concentrated on the PS4. A 50/50 compromise will only lead to a feeling of dilution.

I'm with Sizzon here. A price drop for the Vita would probably be enough to tide people over and make them more forgiving of a PS4 heavy conference. A Vita revision with 32gb of internal memory would also help ...

MariaHelFutura1159d ago (Edited 1159d ago )

Sony should focus on the PS4 more, it's the Trojan War Horse of Playstation. Also, I would expect a Vita price drop pre PS4 considering how closely their connected. A $499 PS4/Vita bundle would rock the house.

sobotz1159d ago

3 Big IP already good enough to win the Gamescom. I prefer The Last Guardian, Uncharted 4, and Agent. Sony can show some Vita games afterwards, it's a win-win situation

joefrost001158d ago

Thats the first thing you said that makes sense all week lol
But I do agree they should drop the vita price considering they work hand in hand

Campy da Camper1158d ago

Can you imagine if the did a ps4/vita bundle for 499? I'd be all over that!

MysticStrummer1158d ago (Edited 1158d ago )

@Campy - PS4 + Vita for $499 would really destroy the One.

Root1159d ago

Well you can only go for what you like personally

I'd rather them focus more of the PS4 then the PSV...I'm not saying the PSV dosn't deserve support because it does but Sony is releasing the PS4 this year, I think it's time to focus on that for now. They had their chance with the PSV.

LAZL0-Panaflex1158d ago (Edited 1158d ago )

Thank you! I'm so damn tired of hearing about the damn vita.i that is the one damn thing I hate about Sony besides the 4 hour trophy syncs taking franchises....(good ones) like god of war killzone resistance and making a shitty handheld version instead of a proper high definition sequel on a console that I can play on my 60" TV ...not a 4" screen on a park bench somewheres. Who plays handheld anyways?...... people with no lives that's who.

T21158d ago

In a way doesn't the ps4 support mirror PSV? If you can play all your ps4 games on vita, isn't every games announcement for ps4 a win for vita anyway?

iceman061158d ago

I won't say "they had their chance" with Vita. However, the Vita launch IS passed. They need to focus on the PS4 launch. Sure, a couple of Vita announcements would be welcomed. It would be nice to see some new PS4 games, the GUI in action, maybe even some companion apps in action. As you said, PS4 is releasing this year, and it's time for Sony to get the point directly to the European audience. Then, on to TGS to wow the Japanese (and grab a couple of games there as well. Post launch, they can do what they did with PSP. Have a price drop and a new, more focused marketing campaign.

Salooh1159d ago

Well , maybe TGS , maybe next E3 , maybe Next year gamescom ... -.-

christrules00411159d ago

The contest is for this years Gamescom

Salooh1159d ago (Edited 1159d ago )

Yeah , disagree like if you people won't say that . It's always been like this . The only good vita show is when they announced it. That's it. The rest were focused on other stuff. Maybe we will get an indie spider man vita game yaaaaaaaaay :D

NewMonday1159d ago

PS4 has to come first in a launch year.

GribbleGrunger1159d ago

Yes, I'm with you two. I want a PS4 heavy conference with a more detailed look at the UI. If they DO have a section for the Vita, I'm hoping a chunk of it will be taken up for the promotion of PS4/Vita integration. Did I mention games?

bothebo1158d ago

How dumb are you? Why does the PS4 need another conference dedicated to it? Do you honestly think it doesn't have enough hype or momentum already?

IT SHOULD BE ABOUT THE VITA.

insomnium21158d ago

@bothebo

facepalm....smh...

MysticStrummer1158d ago

PS4 will potentially sell more Vitas than Vita will sell PS4s, so Sony should focus on PS4.

GribbleGrunger1158d ago (Edited 1158d ago )

Yeah, Mystic, that's why I say PSVita/PS4 integration. The Vita will be a far more appealing proposition when the PS4 releases and those already with a Vita have a great incentive to buy a PS4. The games are there already for the Vita, it's just getting people to look beyond the sensationalist headlines.

slimeybrainboy1159d ago

They already said TGS was Vita focused dint they? but you're right, personally I want PS4 PS4 PS4, but I understand that Vita owners need their fill too.

Salooh1159d ago (Edited 1159d ago )

They said gamescom will focus on the vita , why would you expect that in TGS ?..

From now on i'm not expecting anything for the vita. I will let it collect dust until Killzone . Then hide it again for ps4 remote play . That's the future of the vita to me. When i see them get serious i will be interested in the vita again . But only gonna expect ps4 games in conferences. That will take 2013 and 2014 together to trust sony again in vita..

Let them give us multiplatforms then expect exclusives . To hell with indies , too much indie is sucks. This is the last time i talk about the vita. -.-

modesign1158d ago

the japanese are handheld altruist, so it would be no suprise that sony would spend a grunt of its time showcasing the vita at the TGS, where as the rest of the world is console generated.

dredgewalker1159d ago

I agree with the internal memory, I have a 4gb and 8gb card and I still want to buy a 32gb card so I don't need to swap memory cards. I just like playing psp games on my vita and I prefer buying the vita cartridges for vita games since they tend to be really big files that eat up a lot of space. Also Sony needs to increase the capacity of the cards and reduce the pricing.

joeorc1159d ago

@ GribbleGrunger

"Sony can't really win this one unfortunately"

Exactly 100%, Sony has been supporting the PSVita with game development, but the games being made for the PSVita takes alot of time, the fact that a year to 18 months. the Game development time to release is like it is for a living room console, not like a Mobile device if you want extensive AAA Quality builds.

Look at the number of releases that Take time vs Most indie development on PSN or Playstation Mobile, that is where most of the software in a faster to retail will come from.

developing for the PSVita is not like development for the orig. PSP or 3DS the PSVita's hardware to scale is like a living room console..there is 128 MB of dedicated video ram in this unit. both the PSP and 3DS have 10 MB combined!

6 MB for the 3DS, and the PSP has 4 MB we all have seen what you can do with just that amount, the PSVita Again has 128 MB, I think what's gamer's are expecting in development time requirement and what's realistic is not in line with realistic expectations. for instance when you rush a game like COD on the PSVita gamer's online in forums like this here screamed bloody murder, do gamer's want that for all PSVita games to be rushed?

Like the PS3 the PSVita's Slow development to take advantage of the systems hardware takes time, many development teams want to make use of the system's hardware to make the game they were making.

what's clear is that since the PSVita has been released the fact even with lower sales than the 3DS Sony is supporting the PSVita and not letting the system go without any support. as a matter of fact at this year's E3 EXACTLY LIKE

Newmonday brought up

"media will just focus on the PS4 anyway because it is the star this year, E3 had loads of Vita games on the floor but few reported on them."

that is correct, there was over 4 rows of PSVita units with many psvita units to play on both sides of each and every row. all with Many games to try out, some big AAA budget and some smaller budget. the core fact is Sony is going to keep supporting this Unit because the PSVita is made for the long haul, exactly like every playstation they ever release ..will they make it over the long haul for the PSVita? who knows, but at least they are giving it the good ol college try.

I thought Gamescom was supposed to be the "PS Vita show"

Minato-Namikaze1159d ago

Maybe the show floor? They are really 2 parts to these games shows. Most people just pay attention to the conferences and not much else. Shame really.

Sevir1158d ago (Edited 1158d ago )

LOL, Sony's gone on record to say the show will host plenty of content for the vita! but that platform isnt whats launching in 3 months! So With that being said. PS4>PSVita in terms of importance...

There's already plenty of software announced thats very promising and releasing this year for the VITA. They'll have some focus on the platform with dropping the price and announcing new bundles and new software

But the PS4 will get The brunt of the announcements and will be publicized by the media because its Launching this year. So lets just stop picking quotes from different execs when they were fielded questions on different subject matters for the various platforms they have on market and are about to launch.

Salooh1159d ago (Edited 1159d ago )

I don't mind focusing on the ps4 , but they need to give the vita a show in it's own each year or we would never see any progress. Even if they have big announcements for it people won't know about them unless they are in big conferences .
