I had the first psp and hated it just not worth it really

Should have got some CFW running on it. Every NES, SNES, and SEGA game in the palm of your hands is awesome. Plus, the PSP had some great tittles as well. From Daxter to Crush, Patapon to Killzone liberation. Lots of good stuff there.

BoNeSaW231262d ago

Very true. The PSP really is the best portable device once it is unlocked and CFW is installed.

I smile every time I boot it up and see a library of thousands of games from my childhood, all in the palm of my hand.

Glorious times we live in!

well, thats the problem isnt it....You could do more with the device if you CFW it, but it came at a price for sony.

The Vita is paying for the PSP's sins

you can do more with CFW installed, but with it came piracy, and of course people took advantage of it.

thats why we cant have nice things.

Can't help but wonder how I got so many disagrees and the person fully agreeing with me got so many agrees.

Just one of those N4G community things I guess...

Well that was the Original Psp this is the vita ie doesn't really relate to what they are getting at which is about as stupid as the article the Vita is over because of YouTube, I don't think so somehow I really enjoy my vita after I finally got one last year (far too many great PS+ games being given away at the time to ignore, pretty much paid for the console) but I can honestly say it has nothing to do with YouTube being available and am i upset it's no longer available? Not really don't have the space for it, you can get YouTube on pretty much everythiny nowawdays so nevermind Vita doesn't have a dedicated App for it anymore you can still access it through the browser if need be, I'd rather use it for playing games... Crazy I know.

so much for NGP beating the 3ds lol

Concertoine1262d ago

Oh man, i remember those days.

SilentNegotiator1262d ago

To be fair, back then, they were going to be the same price and no one knew Resistance, COD, Silent Hill, etc were going to get f'd up so badly on vita. lol

Insomnia_841262d ago

^This!

But PSV is definitely the best portable out there. If it only had more support from developers.

fact, the 3DS and the Vita where at $250 dollars at one point. Nintendo had to give up profitability for a while for market share. they knew that a system that was equally priced to their portable that did everything better than their system was going to present a problem.

so they cut the price, with it, they gained market share and games that ended up on their platform.

elninels1259d ago

All about the games. Fire emblem, Pokemon, bravely default, kingdom hearts, dk country, legend of zelda, and so, so, so many more.

Persona 4 golden alone made vita worth it to me. Other that that almost all the games I use it for are available on other consoles. I admit that I love being able to play classic playstation games (vagrant story, final fantasy) anywhere. But remote play isn't that great from my experience. And i wish they would have just went with SD cards. And quit this back touch screen crap. Ugh.

I wish sony or nintendo used the nvidia shield design. I find both consoles to be rather uncomfortable in my hands. I never really carry either one in my pocket anyway, they get thrown in the backpack.

If they do a vita 2 it will be for the sake of playstation now and vue.

Hey, the 3DS doesn't have P4G (one of my favorite games of all time).

I'm buying the new 3DS, but I'll defend the Vita whenever necessary.

supraking9511262d ago

Right cause people just buy a vita to watch YouTube...

SilentNegotiator1262d ago

They're certainly not buying it for the first party games...

One-Shot1262d ago

Must be for the load of other games then.

Inception1262d ago

I bought it for Gravity Rush and JRPG and never regret it.

MetroidFREAK211262d ago

I wouldn't be surprised if this handheld does phase out...
