A few reasons why perspective Vita buyers should purchase a PlayStation Vita 2000 over the PlayStation TV.
They're both amazing buys but if I had to chose I would go straight Vita 2000. It's the best portable gaming system ever made and it has really been picking up steam in sales lately. Plus there are many great exclusives in the works.
Yeah I have and love both but Vita would be my choice if I could only have one.
I wouldn't call the PlayStation TV an "amazing" buy. I've got one but I only use it to capture footage. Outside of twitch/youtube purposes, I cant really pin down who needs one. The interface is super lame without a touch screen, and most of the games don't work. I will give them credit that nearly all of the Vita physical releases are Playstation TV compatible. Personally, I recommend the original Vita. That OLED screen is so good.
Ps4 remote play on second TV. That's who needs one. It helps when you have a family and there is competition for the main tv
I dunno, you can get one for $80 now if you have a spare PS3 controller. Has a lot of nice games. It's nice if you want to play those games. Vita I think is better overall, but it is more expensive, and some people don't like portable screens. They also don't use the OLED anymore.:( I think which to buy just depends on what you want from it. The PSTV won't break the bank though for the budget gamer, and plenty of great games which can be found under $20...and a huge number of games if you've been stocking them on PS+ since they started having them on there.
Can you play Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops/Peace Walker on Vita? Because if you can I'll buy one immediately.
Yep. You can also play metal gear solid 2 and snake eater.
Can you really? Aw man that's awesome. I was planning on buying a ps3 for those games but I'm getting a Vita instead. Thanks.
Game compatibility really varies per region. It's best to check your local PlayStation Store on the browser through store.sonyentertainmentnetwork .com You'll find most PS Vita compatible games are listed as being playable on the device. If you're in North America, there are certain games (including the original Metal Gear Solid) that are only playable on Vita through a transfer from PS3. For that, consult this list: https://www.cheapassgamer.c... Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is directly downloadable to PS Vita globally. Unfortunately, Portable Ops doesn't work on Vita in North America through any means. You can download it directly to Vita in Europe and Asia, though.
@Captain_Wormy Indeed one can, check it out ;) - https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Buy a Vita, not a PS TV. Some of the best games on the system don't work on PS TV.
You shouldn't buy neither. lol
You shouldn't of even commented. lol
Nice double negative, bro.
i wanted to buy a vita last christmas, but sony didn't have a single fuckin sale over the holidays. they really don't give a shit anymore
Just get one used I got myself a Vita with a 16 gb memory stick for $100 off kijiji.
Can't download soul reaver on vita so fuuc it!
Got one with Pandora battery a long time ago. It was the best thing ever.
You mean a PSP ...
my vita just yesterday got the blinking blue light of death. so now i got to get a new one and i dont like the new model and the old model is at a higher price now.
New model is $80 cheaper than the old model used to be. And of course discontinued hardware is note expensive and difficult to find--that's why backwards compatibility is such an absolute necessity.
I'm not a fanboy by any means... But I wouldn't buy either because neither suit my tastes... I don't watch TV, and I don't like the games Sony produces anymore... I really hope I don't offend anyone with that comment... Wasn't my intent. ***Granted I have a PS2, but that's because I had one when I was going up, so I play it for reliving the past... Nothing more***
Well you can just buy the other games that Sony doesn't produce...like third party.....
That's true, but I'm more than content with my consoles I have now to worry about buying another one.
PlayStation TV is pretty awful for watching TV anyway. 720p/1080i limit and very few video apps. The resolution limit is understandable given it's playing 540p Vita games, but PSTV even lacks video apps Vita has ...
The Vita has better games than the 3DS. It's also the best platform to enjoy Minecraft. Not a popular opinion but after two months of owning a Vita I'm now a believer.
An L and an O and another L. I love my Vita and all, but not at the expense of the 3DS. Disparaging one platform to compliment another is like a backhanded compliment. Also: Minecraft is best on Vita. The hell is wrong with you? The obvious best platform is PC.
If you can find an OLED Vita it beats both
Had mine since launch, hopefully Sony bring back the oled screen if they choose to make a newer model or successor to the Vita.
exactly and they are like $289-$318 now for the old model.
come think of it i dont think i have spotted any vitas in the places i been at. its mostly the pstv's so far
Neither; grab the OLED model. If yiu cannot then PS TV is the last but still awesome option.
Why OLED? My Vita 2000 screen looks amazing, the OLED seemed saturated. And by the age, a used OLED would probably have much worse battery life than a new Vita Slim, they do not have user-replaceable batteries.
How do you connect the vita to your tv?
@JamesBondage you cannot unfortunately. The guts to connect the vita 1000 to a TV are there but no cable is available (except questionable Chinese made one's). Sony made the decision early on not to allow it.
That's what I thought 😩
