From HDWarriors.com With the full revelation of the Sony Vita and its PS3 compatibility this week at E3, a major component of Sony's current strategy has been revealed.
They're attacking that giant enemy crab's weak point for massive damage. They're doing what they did with the Move, really... Real time weapon change.
Seriously we are going to be the winners when they start to lock horns. Nintendo in Japan may be in jeopardy but, Nintendo would be a monster hunter away from a victory. However, latest PSP version of monster hunter could get a rerelease. NA will be interesting to say the least.
If Sony can deliver on all fronts a rich software environment to match this wonderful hardware they've come up with, they might finally have a chance at taking back some of the market share that Nintendo has held on to for far too long.
People may agree with you, but your right, this could be a interesting time in handheld wars. Sony has got a huge power advantage, game advantage as well features of the device. Plus the hugely competitive price, that let's be honest, no one truly believed they would do. I have a 3DS, but god I can't wait for the Vita, it's going to be amazing!
I plan on owning both...and effectively avoiding the "handheld wars." However, I can't help but feel a tinge of regret that I paid $250 bones for a 3DS. If the PS Vita was more expensive perhaps I could validate my purchase. Then again, Zelda is still not out and I have zero games to play at the moment so I guess not (yet) :-/ I'm looking forward to playing games on both handhelds. Hopefully they offer unique experiences for years to come...and touch screen tablets never replace dedicated handhelds with buttons.
nice one ive been laughing actually bubble for you! but what intrigue me is, that we know nintendo will lower the price.did they knew that sony was going to lower there price so that sony would sell at lost and nintendo doing some high profit and getting momentum after thee price cut? nah i dont think so
In the balls?
Hmm is someone owns PS3, only handheld you can have is PSV - PS+ membership gives alot, minis, PSX games, PSP its alot of content itself, psn account...
This title feels like erotic fan-fiction. *shudder*
Vita should dominate the market. I just hope Sony market it right.
psv will dominate 3ds
I'm pretty sure that PSVita + PS3 + Remote Play combo can do the same things as WiiU + large ass controller. 3DS won't be the only victim of the PSV.
I Agreed with the article in the sense that things will be different this time around. Question: how many of you here think the ps vita will reach a 100 million sold milestone?
I'm getting one. So is my Dad. I can see this appealing to Dads for some reason. I was surprised when I met up with him for lunch that he bought the PSV Eindhoven up. He wants GT for it. So do I.
See, thats what i mean. Sony is doing a lot of things right this time around and that much is already becoming evident.
For me they are timing this thing right.
I believe that where Sony hit them the hardest was the price. They could have sold the Handheld for 350 and 400 euros but instead they choose to price the barebones model the same price as the 3DS. People claim that Nintendo will just drop the price this holiday but i dont believe they will do it so shortly after the 3DSs release.
I'm really excited for PSV, even though i own PSP i only really played it when i went on road trips and holidays, but i think the PSV will get me more involved with handheld gaming. Is there any news on remote play for PSV?, Be cool if you could do what the Wii-U did by connecting console to portable screen then, moving about while playing console game at the same time, thats the main me feature that caught my interest in Wii-U. Something i find funny about PS Vita is, that PSV makes sense since its 5th PlaySation device that will be release you had PS, PS2, PSP and PS3.
Ruin is doing something similiar: http://www.engadget.com/201...
cheers i knew of Transfarring watched interview with Hideo Kojima, between the psv, psp and ps3 its amazing idea. But what i want to know is can i play say uncharted 3 on ps3, but then someone wants watch the tv could i continue playing uncharted 3 on the PSV like remote play, like what nintendo showed with Wii-U controller.
Yeah, sony just destroyed nintendo on every field this time around. What were nintendo thingking? 5 years with these console on? i dont think the 3ds nor the wiiu have a chance on ruling this time around, sorry guys, nor even pokemon gonna save this. At that prize? all that?, give me the console alone i ill cum.
Same things were said about PSP beating DS. Of course now we see otherwise. Problem here is Sony fanboys think the world shares their thoughtless devotion to anything Sony. the PSP and PS3 launch numbers should have proven to you that is not the case yet here you are again proclaiming victory... Thing is its not doing much that the DS didnt do already. Sure fanboys will be impressed but most of the public will look at the PSV as old tech.
Why is it people like you who persist on the past? Everyone here knows why the ps3 has not taken the world by storm, its launch price can be thank for that. Psp didn't have a solid marketing campaign and aimed at many different markets with no sense of direction. It was also the more expensive of the two handhelds on the market. Things are different now, instead of Sony focusing on vita's media functionalities. It chose to focus on games and market the device as, which is what they did with both the PlayStation and PlayStation 2 platforms and we all know how those two turned out. Ps3 has been marketed as a bluray player and expensive at that, now the price has gone down to a more friendlier point. And the ps3 is being marketed as a 3D gaming platform which if you ask gamers, is a better message that resonates with them more. As a result the ps3 has gain some ground in a very short amount of years, and i am sure that while Sony fanboys love Sony products, they aren't the only ones buying Sony products either. The vita is bound to be a success in many ways, for everything it offers is the result of the requests of millions. Things will be different this time around, that much is certain.
history repeats its self. sonys strategy has been copying and replicating everything nintendo does. nintendo is a company that just does things the nintendo way but Sony lots of features on the system weren't their ideas i been trying to do research and so i looked at both pages i took an unbiased look after reviving mail from ppl to look so i did http://us.playstation.com/p... and compare everything to the 3DS page http://www.nintendo.com/3ds... their strategy is taking everything that nintendo has that's not cool. the pricing is logical but copying everything the system can do is underhanded. you have to remember this nintendo has mass appeal in the news, Sony still has their breaching to deal with which is a wild card /ace up the sleeve for Microsoft/nintendo should they ever choose to use it. the keys to success this gen arent the games its who can market the best if vita doesnt get on some oprah like talk show then its not gonna sell like the 3DS will. theres nothing innovative about the psv besides the back touch screen. everything else is done or has been done on a phone or handheld. its just a graphical powerhouse but if thats your selling point buy the same game twice for psv and ps3 or vice versa people will choose their ps3 first. people will get mad at the same identical titles on their psv that they have on ps3 you think its good but the gba generation i loved it because titles were offered that would never be on the gamecube, same for the ds. sega got burned trying to do that but meh. depending on what you call success because it seems like it changes by company. psvita will be a gamecube success, i loved the cube but not everyone else they liked the ps2 more the aka the 3DS. cheers to a new handheld gen nothing that anyone on this site says until 2012 will matter in this race when both are out.
It wouldn't be trending at number 3 on Yahoo if anything you said was true. I said above that my Dad wants one. I can see many Dads buying them so they have something to do on the train commute. Also, the PSP still sold a shitload.
"Let us also not forget that Sony already has plans to use the Vita and PS3 in conjunction in ways that may give gamers a ‘Wii U-lite’ type of experience." As the PSV is likely to be far more powerful than the controller for the Wii U, they should be capable of doing everything the Wii U can do and more.
i think it's going to be very close betwen 3ds and the ps vita, things will be different this time around, and trust me cod on the go will sell more ps vita's than gimmicky 3d on a tiny screen
PSVita is making the 3DS look like a ripoff Nintendo should do a price drop, the 3D thing is just a gimmick I dont even use it I dont see any game where the 3D is a huge factor of its gameplay
Considering what both machines has to offer one would certainly think that for sure. But i wont knock the 3DS, its a decent handheld with cool software coming to it.
Yeah but nothing good from third parties. Only good software coming is from first parties. While the PSVita is getting good support from third parties.
if I want to play uncharted or superstardust or wipeout, I'm going to play the superior version on my ps3, not on a f!cking handheld.
i have a feeling this psv/ps3 complex is gonna come about soon.
i got a 3ds it pretty sweet ,thinking about the vita ,luv the price, sony need to bring sum good games tho and i really dont wanna see the same things for vita as i see for ps3 sure ill take god of war and a few other but dont bored me with remakes and a few extra guns ,lets get this sh crackin sony i had a psp and it bored the sh out of me : ) anywho enjoy your morning
