Gameranx: "It’s more than just a “yes” or “no” answer, because it depends on what you’re getting it for. Here are some ideas that might help you decide if it’s time to buy a PS Vita when the PS4 comes out."
What? You should already own one.
I'll say if you have the money to spend on both then yes. Vita has a BIG library of game and with the remote play feature you'll be good to go.
I've been saying this for a while but if you're not a fan of the $200 price point, look for one on ebay and craigslist. I have found both mine and my roommates that way for around $120 each. They were both practically brand new and came wtih a few extras too! That way it brings it down to around the $500 price point with PS4. Hmm do I want a X1 and kinect or a PS4 and Vita that not only functions with the PS4 but is badass enough on its own...
I own one so I would say yes... but in reality: Wait to see how the Remote Play feature pans out. Then see if it appeals to you.
What appeals to me?? Shadowfall on oled screen in bed !!
Just think of all the crazy games that you can play while taking a crap! (Wipes a tear away, then wipes again, the future is finally here.)
My actual dream is play Demon´s Souls 2 in my VITA
If you want to play great games like Destiny, infamous second son, battlefield 4, the witcher 3, Uncharted 4, The order 1886, fallout 4 on your Vita anywhere in your house whenever you want, and play a great selection of Vita games everywere in the world Then yes. if you dont like any of these things then no.
Bought 3 already lost the first 2.
Dude how did you lose them?
1st one fell out my back pocket carelessly,while riding my bike,the 2nd fell in the toilet,all this happened within 5 weeks,something in the cards didn't want me to have a Vita.
thats almost as bad as my lil bro losing both his car keys and cell phone in the same toilet flush. and no im not kidding. phone stayed in the bowl. keys are somewhere between the toilet and the water treatment facility
I love the PS4 to Vita connectivity, but I'm still not seeing any impressive titles on the Vita that scream BUY ME! The remote play feature is cool but not for $200
Gravity Rush is the best game of 2012 ( Virtue's Last Reward a close second)IMO.
Depends on if the Remote Play features work accordingly, and if it's something that you want. Asking someone to spend an additional $200+ when they've already spent close to $500 already with their PS4 (console, game) could be pushing it. Down the road perhaps.
This is something that I want for my PS4, however, I had a psp and unless the Remote Play takes off I'm not sure if I really care to own one. Not to say its not an amazing handheld, but I know myself I wouldn't really ever play it.
HELL YEAH getting vita first
After watching the lagless demo of Shadowfall in remote play I would say yes.
Can you provide a link on shadow fall played on vita? I haven't seen it! Thank you
Here you go, it's not the best quality but you'll get the picture: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Also new video if you havent seen it: http://www.ign.com/videos/2...
If there was ever a time to own a Vita, it's now.
I've had one since launch and absolutely love it. Will be loving it more than ever in just a few short days. Good luck to anyone trying to get to the crapper while I'm on it playing Killzone: Shadow Fall.
I already own one
if you don't already want a VITA for what it is don't get as a 200$ plus that expensive memory card peripheral for PS4.I love offscreen play on the Wiiu but the controller has triggers and a sizeable screen. Get a VITA to have a VITA not to have one for PS4.
If you can afford too, then yes, obviously! Can't wait to pick mine up
nope. I rather just get a Vita. It better and finally has games I want to play. Of all ps4 games not a singe buzz from me.
I bought a Vita last year, best thing i have bought recently. I have been playing ICO and SotC via remote play on PS3. Stunning bit of kit, i also recently bought this for it as well. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sof...
I already own a Vita (might buy the new model and Vita TV) and have 3 PS4s preordered Lol
Already own a Vita, but I want that 2000 grey too. Also want the "TV edition" and play me some P3P and P4G all over again.
Yes love my vita since launch. Off topic: funny how a year ago there was barely a posistive comment about owning/buying a vita. **looks above** :D
