Welcome Back Vita.

At this point in time the Vita is regarded as long dead but recent releases have shown that even Sony's current handheld has some life left in it.

Well Vita has been getting games for a while now. The people who stuck with the handheld have been supported for a long while now.

your mad because you never owned one or even if you did you prob sold it. Your loss man

Every Vita owner seems to reject the notion that it's dead. We all talk about how it's dead, but the actual Vita owners seem to be pretty happy with it still.

Welcome to the internet, where people that have the strongest opinions about something, usually don't own the thing they have strong opinions about.

Im an actual Vita owner, and I say its dead.


Same. I'm not even using it for remote play anymore.

It's dead in your world, but anything you're willing to support remains.

RexKwonDo151d ago

Unless you're into japanimation. Its too niche for most users.

Because the Vita is not dead in one region of the world: Japan. The people that still own and play their Vita are largely interested in the type of games that come out on it, so of course to them it's still alive. Essentially first party Vita support is dead and the console is dead in most Western markets, however it still clings to life in Japan. It doesn't have to be dead (or alive) everywhere in the world.

As a Vita owner I can confirm it is indeed dead.It was an impressive handheld technically speaking but sony obviously gave up on it a long time ago. I can remeber seeing less commercials for it soon as ps4 released

At what point did Vita stop receiving games?

AmstradAmiga152d ago are still released for the Atari 2600 so whats your point?

Silly gameAr151d ago

What's your point?

What a dumb question. If games are still being released, then it's not really dead is it? They must think that there's a large enough of an audience to keep releasing games. That's kinda common sense.

PhoenixUp152d ago

Do you see any major publishers announcing and releasing games on Atari 2600 like they still do for Vita? 😑

I swear logic seems to be lost with some people

WeebLord150d ago

What's a major publisher in your mind? Atlus? NIS? It has been dead for awhile, zero growth, zero interest.

Sopota152d ago

The only games coming out are JRPGs, I sold mine when I finished Persona and Danganronpa 1 & 2.

The 10th Rider151d ago (Edited 151d ago )

Japan and indies still release on it. Larger Western games have been gone from the system for years.

Sony stopped developing new AAA games for Vita back in 2014. It got a few ports and smaller games in 2014 and then that tapered off in 2015 and they haven't published a single game for it since then.

nitus10151d ago

I think one of the biggest complaints of the Vita is the price of the proprietary memory cards however you can purchase a MicroSD adaptor for the Vita which is surprisingly cheap. (approx $8.00 USD).

Of course, if you do get one or more of these you should look for a Class 10 or Ultra MicroSD card which are the ones recommended for the Switch.

BTW. Please don't take my word on this use a search engine to find the pros and cons of using this adaptor before making a purchase.
