Sony's re-focusing on the PS Vita has convinced me to give it another chance

GameZone's Lance Liebl writes, "I bought a PS Vita at launch. A lot of my friends told me not to – including other video game journalists – saying it was a wasted piece of tech with no games that didn't have a place in the market. I persevered, but as time went on and the Nintendo 3DS got game after game, I sat there and watched my Vita collect dust. I decided I wanted a 3DS XL."

I have to admit, at first i wasn't really interested, but when i found out about the cross play with PS4 games it got me really interested. I will probably buy one next year some time.

I think it was a smart move on Sony's side, i can see it being an appealing selling point.

And even though i don't really have any need for PS Vita TV i can see how it would be really useful for some people.

You think a $200 accessory is appealing? You're kidding right? How about instead of spending $700 to get a new game streamed on your Vita how about just spending $40 for a new one?

I would argue very little focus has been on the Vita from SCEE and hardly any from SCEA. However, SCEJA has been absolutely killing it in terms of new and exciting content. Think about it people, what AAA games do we know of after Tearaway... very few. Indie games simply are not going to cut it and will definitely not keep people on the system.

Ps Vita TV price is $100 and here's your list:

Soul Sacrifice Delta
Freedom Wars
Phantasy Star Nova
Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd
God Eater 2
Valhalla Knights 3
Ys Cecelta
Borderlands 2
Ragnarok Odyssey Ace
Samurai Warriors 4
Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate

And there are a lot more... Just because you're retarded enough to not use Google to see what games are coming doesn't mean there aren't.

Very wise. Lets completely forget about Killzone Merc that released last week and focus on a period when Sony is trying to push the PS4. Though since you made a big deal about it...

- Teraway
- Batman Blackgate (I hope anyway...)
- FF X-2 HD
- God Eater 2
- Dynasty Warrior 8
- Soul Sacrifice Delta
- Freedom Wars
- Phantasy Star Nova

Oh I'm sorry do you live in Japan? Because the majority of Vita owners don't dip shit. Name western games RELEASING IN THE US AND EUROPE.

@ Bothbo

While the list is mostly Japanese games, we're sure to see Freedom Wars, Soul Sacrifice Delta, Samurai Warriors 4 and Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate. Very rarely do we miss out on first party Sony exclusives, Soul Sacrifice did well enough in the states and warrior games almost always come over. Of the remaining list we have Phantasy Star, which most likely will (a good number of the portable ones did, and online 2 is confirmed) and Diva F 2nd might based off sales of the PS3 version in the US. Finally we have God Eater 2, which probably will, since 1 was free with US plus. Not the best indicator, but it would be weird if that wasn't a way to gauge interest.

@bothebo Yeah its not like if half of these games will be released on NA/EU this year and the other half will be localized the next year...

I would like to get my hands on a Vita someday just not at the moment.

GinkgoID1739d ago

The Vita's awesome. Mine gets used daily.

Belking1739d ago

Vita is never gonna take off if it hasn't already.

When you want something you make use for it I loved my Vita sinch launch time its my CPU away from my cpu. I had dozens of backlog PSP titles to take down playing on Vita 10 times better than my PSP screen and controls. I enjoyed the bit of Remote play functionality I have with my PS3. ad hoc compatible with PSPs POWER STONE TOURNYs. Some of this was for lack of original IPs but most of it just happend this way. Playstation Allstars crossplay was great for me too. Now posting on N4G on my Vita right back into some KZ Mercs wit an awesome future ahead.
