Power Up Gaming's Scott Russell examines where Sony is going wrong with its handheld.
I wish the Vita could be used to sign into multiple accounts.
stop wishing, it used to be able to until Sony removed it.
It never had it.
More rpgs would be nice.
you clearly never owned a vita when Sony wasn't pushing an indie machine. It was possible to have more then 1 account on a single memory card but they removed that feature i'm not going to argue with someone who does not know facts.
What a certin. Your link doesn't say anything about multiple accounts on the Vita itself. It says you have to factory reset if you want to use the same memory card but different PSN. That's not the Vita having multiple accounts, you have never been able to switch easily and quickly from one account to another. Which is what they said they wanted Learn to read.
"Since the publication of this story, Sony has retracted its statement and said that Vita will only support a single user ID" how did you miss that in your own link?
This! It's unfortunate. Though it makes sense to combat piracy. As much as that sucks. :/
The memory cards are the greatest annoyance for me. The propitiatory format is an anti piracy attempt gone wild.
Piracy on the PSP was pretty wild, too.
Oh yeah thats right. One thing that makes this worse is being forced into using their software to transfer files from a PC
tell me about it... it was the easiest hardware ever to crack too with simple file transfer required.. infact i just ended up buying a psp go on impulse for 20$ and i immediately installed CFW after taking it home.
Memory stick prices is probably the biggest problem.
This! I currently have a 8gb card and if you want to go fully digital for your vita, you need at least a 16gb card. However, if you don't want to switch out games from a PC, you might need a 32gb card which is sitting around $60-70 and that's on sale...ridiculous.
Grab a 64gb for $80 on eBay itll easily hold its value or most of it ;)
Games there is no AAA games, no socom, no gta san andreas stories??????????? no burnout, no need for speeds other than most wanted. No star wars, There were so many games on psp, vita is mostly indies I love them but come on we need some AAA games.
I honestly wish people would actually stop chasing that and just focus on coming up with cencepts fit for a handheld. Where's the adventure games and action RPGs like pokemon or zelda, why th hell hasn't capcom brought Monster hunter to the vita? How about some better games that aren't just hand me down ports and use the systems features well. Seriously, the potential is there, nobody is willing to take that chance, that's mainly what annoys me aside from the memory card price
I didn't even realize that you can't save off your save files individually to the cloud. That's just dumb since you can do it with the PS3. I saw the Near app, but had no idea what it was for. I've never opened it. Sony really needs to drop the price on those proprietary memory cards. I bought a 16GB one, but I'll probably need a new one next year since I've been download a lot of FREE PS+ games.
You can send saves to the cloud. There is also an option to do it automatically.
1. Games 2. Games 3. Games Man, the damn games!
Fuck the vita man just sell it off If you r still having it for remote play then its useless its nearly immposible to play it better is xperia z3 which cost the same prize as ps4 good move sony(fuck u sony)
sony them self are my biggest Annoyance nothing more i don't know how can you send out some thing to die if they knew that the ps4 were going to take all of there time and resource why release the vita i think they could have waited a few more years after they settled down with the ps4... i really do love my vita bought it 2 years ago now the left stick is not working any ways that just one of the problems if sony gave just a little bit more games i would have had to replace my stick but it looks like i'm just going to leave it as it is i have no need to fix it i have already played the games i'm interested in. thanks sony for the support that you gave us vita owners.
Don't be generess to them they took your money and fool you You should sue their case not thank them
Only 4 Triple A western games has to be the biggest disappointment. The games I'm talking about, and are the only ones worth buying the system for are Killzone: Mercenary, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Borderlands 2 and Assassins Creed: Liberation.
I agree with all of the points in the article, specially the memory cards
It obviously SCEA!!
I think psvita is doing pretty good not to mention a lot of rpg,visual novel,mmo,ecchi,etc game are available ho yes but those games are only Japanese exclusive. hahahahaha!!!! So I guess I have to learn Japanese in order to play it. Hahahahahaha! Sony keep it up make more Japanese exclusive games for the vita by next year you will see your product out sold in your dreams. Hahahahah!!!
most annoying thing is the user interface... god I hate those bubbles.
My biggest annoyance is that no is making a competitor to nintendos best titles, where's our zelda like action RPG?(3D dot game heroes 2 anyone?), where's the answer to pokemon?, why the hell hasn't vita gotten a monster hunter yet? And why is there such a lack of platformers? All these games BEG to be played on a handheld yet here we are years later and the only things we got are two half baked monster hunter clones, som shitty adventure games ported from smart phones with the soulless art style of Facebook games, and the only really noteworthy platformer i can think of is Guacamelee
