What would the selling point even be for a Vita successor

skydragoonityx365d ago

Oh i dunno... Maybe exclusive sony games?

FallenAngel1984365d ago

That didn't help the Vita in the long run

Eidolon365d ago

Long run? They gave up on it pretty early. It's not getting the love it deserves, not like the PSP anyway.

TheColbertinator365d ago

Vita had no God of War,Syphon Filter,Gran Turismo or 3rd party giants like Final Fantasy,Monster Hunter or GTA.

Sony left it to die

The memory cards were the problem, not the games

Kaneki-Ken365d ago

No overpriced memory card and allow third party Memory card. A GTA game.

I was thinking an optional add on? Kinda like a play anywhere device? But then it's too expensive. Idk I would prefer them to focus on ps4 and vr.

crazychris4124365d ago

Would have to have games for the typical Western Market (shooters,racing), exclusives, low price for memory cards and have full DS4 controller support if they want it to succeed.

They got off to a great start with the Vita with games like Wipeout 2048 and Uncharted and I would have bought one but they stopped making games I was interested in playing. I have 0 interest in playing JRPGs, indies and multi platform games on the Vita. Why would I buy a game like MLB the Show or Borderlands for my Vita when I can play on my PS4 Pro or gaming PC?? I have 0 time when Im on the go so I would only be playing at home. Rather play on my 50" TV or 24" gaming montior than on a 5" screen.

So in other words, you are looking for western exclusive game then?

DeathtoOtakuDJ365d ago

No more proprietary memory cards.
Maybe the addition of L2/R2 buttons/triggers.
More simplified UI.
Separate GAME and SAVE files from each other.
Update Wi-fi to use the latest standard(s).
Bring more PS1/PSP games to Vita.
More first party support.

The UI is pretty simple as is.

DeathtoOtakuDJ365d ago

Oh... I meant like. Hmmm, how do I explain it.
Probably I'm too used to PSP/PS4, but having things listed from left to right just felt more... "normal". I don't like having to flip up and down on the pages to get to icons, and I've tried to put things into "stacked bubbles", but you can only fit so much into those.

It's not that big of a deal, but more of a personal issue, I guess, lol.

Eidolon365d ago (Edited 365d ago )

Yup, I mean PS4 uses regular HDDs, why can't they have the same security for Micro SD?

Maybe they can make the successor a little bulkier to add more buttons.

UI is okay as it is. Cant really think of anything to improve it but there is probably improvements to be made.

I agree, I deleted a few games to make space and found out i lost my long saves :(.

5ghz AC and more powerful TX/RX, yes please, remote play sucks in a couple of my rooms.

I thought most ps1/psp games were supported. hmm.

Yes, they need big hitters from first parties. No one wants shoddy ports from PS4/PC.. we want so ground up exclusives that will want us to buy the handheld.

Asuka365d ago

if i could get a game like Nier: Automata, Bayonetta, or Vanquish (like seriously i need more Vanquish in my life) on a handheld...if only Kreygasm. Would also like a dock for it (ala Switch) so i could out to a monitor/tv with addition usb ports AND A LAN port, but is not necessary could be an accessory imo as it should be a handheld first. All usb-c for data transfer, charging, and display output. no more proprietary port. no more proprietary, overpriced memcards. would drop $249 in a heartbeat personally

Tankbusta40365d ago

Why would you need a dock? Just put an HDMI on it and make it so it pairs with a dual shock.

Asuka365d ago

dock would be for other things like more usb ports and a LAN port for a wired connection. But yeah its not really needed i just think it would be cool haha.

You don't need to add an HDMI port on it if it has USB type C port and sony allows video out from it. that one port can do it all. charge, transfer data, display output, etc.
