Should You Get a PS Vita with a PS4?

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." (PS Vita, PS4)

What? You should already own one.
JoGam  +   158d ago
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.

Just think of all the crazy games that you can play while taking a crap!

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.

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
dcj0524  +   158d ago
Gravity Rush is the best game of 2012 ( Virtue's Last Reward a close second)IMO.
Neonridr  +   158d ago
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.
gazgriff2k12  +   158d ago
HELL YEAH getting vita first
stavrami  +   158d ago

After watching the lagless demo of Shadowfall in remote play I would say yes.
Omar91  +   158d ago
Can you provide a link on shadow fall played on vita? I haven't seen it!
Thank you

If there was ever a time to own a Vita, it's now.
teedogg80  +   158d ago
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.
ElementX  +   158d ago
I already own one
_QQ_  +   158d ago
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.
naBs  +   158d ago
If you can afford too, then yes, obviously! Can't wait to pick mine up
Misaka_x_Touma  +   158d ago
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.
SniperControl  +   158d ago
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.

AbortMission  +   158d ago
I already own a Vita (might buy the new model and Vita TV) and have 3 PS4s preordered Lol
Protagonist  +   158d ago
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.
MatrixxGT  +   158d ago
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**
PiperMCFierceson  +   157d ago
Does anyone know if the vita can be used as a ps4 controller for two player gaming?
