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.
I want a Vita but they don't sell the original OLED version anymore which I want.
Amazon and ebay I guess
get certified refurbished from amazon, i bought one, just like new
No need with Switch.
Im still in for my vita. I have quite the backlog for it now.
its dead, let it go
your mad because you never owned one or even if you did you prob sold it. Your loss man
Why dont you let it go?
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.
Unless you're into japanimation. Its too niche for most users.
thats because you do not liek good games
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?
Lol...games are still released for the Atari 2600 so whats your point?
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.
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
What's a major publisher in your mind? Atlus? NIS? It has been dead for awhile, zero growth, zero interest.
The only games coming out are JRPGs, I sold mine when I finished Persona and Danganronpa 1 & 2.
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. https://en.wikipedia.org/wi...
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. https://www.ebay.com/p/Sd2v... (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.
It's not back. It's been gone since Sony dropped support. Doesn't mean it won't still receive games or have a small dedicated fan base, but overall it's been gone for a while. Even Japan, who was the main buyer of the handheld, is starting to go down in units sold.
That's why I traded mine in for that very reason of Sony stopping support with first party tiles in 2015.
Traded mine in,after KZ:Mercenary it just collected dust.
Dead platforms don’t continue to get games. Especially not in the quantity Vita does.
Sorry but no, as much as it breaks my heart you can't change the facts. Sony let the vita bleed a slow death, and a tragic one at that, so much wasted potential
It died for me when they stopped making the Maddens, Uncharted, NBA2k, Resistance, Ninja Gaiden, basically console on the go games other than phone style, RPG, or Indie games, which I have zero interest in.
First twelve words in article is all I needed to read.
Be glad. The rest of it is just a mess.
Go figure. Halloween themed article I assume. Some hocus pocus, bring this second crap attempt at handheld or whatever that was back from the dead.
I use mine all the time. 1) for Vita games and 2) for PS4 mobile play.
It's still very much alive for me, but it's dead for those that don't support it. More games have released for it in the last 3 years than the big consoles. Whether you like them or not is another story. It's been a great gaming device for me that I use every night. I hope that freedom wars gets a shot at another game.
mine never died got plenty of games still to play on it
If you stream your ps4 to a vita, it's certainly not dead. This may go down as the biggest cult system of all time. I still want the orange.
I think it's time for a refresh in my opinion. It's been around for years now and mobile hardware is MUCH MUCH MUCH better than it use to be. If Sony is going to support it, even if they don't launch high-end exclusive after the next, they could at least make a faster one and try putting PS3 ports on it and the current trend of indie/lower fidelity games on it. I mean, not saying it has to be a second PS4 success story but give us something better at this point...
Muramasa Rebirth and Odin Sphere Leifthrasir on the Vita are some of my favorite games.
Just got hold of a vita with OLED screen playing Sine Mora and SOLDNER X amazing games that are perfect for vita with that gorgeous screen. More shmups please such a great system, Sony should of supported instead of letting it die slowly.
A systems only dead until you personally stop playing it, I still play ZX spectrum, C64, Snes, Megadrive, Neo Geo etc etc. These systems will never die they have thriving communities. The only time these systems die to me is when I'm dead.
Make a new really cheap version Market the sht out of it ... profit
When $ony start supporting the vita again, then and only then it will be back.
My Vita never left.
Remove that stupid memory stick or die in pain.
