Attitude to two devices is "basically the same", says SCEE boss Ryan.
This is good.
Not necessarily. The game support for the PSP quickly declined and even Sony's first-party studios didn't do much(No Uncharted or InFamous). I don't need a handheld but the Vita's really tempting. There were a lot of JRPG's though but that's not my thing(Too much grinding + turn-based combat don't work for me) In other news my PSP sits quietly in the corner with a slightly dysfunctional analog stick.
That depends entirely on how fond you are of Sony's first party titles. Personally, I don't care too much about ANY first party titles. The main problem with the PSP (and PS3) was that Sony didn't really do anything to encourage (or help) 3rd party developers. And, IIRC, that's not the case with the Vita. Anyway, back on the PSP, "JRPG" is a very, very wide genre--the widest, in fact. Have you checked out the Ys Games? Think a faster-paced diablo with more melee and less (mostly no) magic. Project Diva? Triangle Frontier? Valkyria Chronicles? PSP has a ~LOT~ to offer beyond dull, DQ-esque JRPGs. Since you've already got one, ya' ought to seek out some of those more unique games. If you want to consider yourself a gamer, you have a responsibility to give every game a chance!
I've tried Valkyria Chronicles and I liked it. The Y series is on my list but the graphics put me off(not the anime art style but the small figures). I'll check out some of the games that you have mentioned though, but I've kinda lost hope in my PSP. I'll maybe play GT or Twisted Metal the odd time.
You probably didnt read the article. The reason I say is good, is because Sony viewed the psp as a portable for the hardcore. Vita is however aiming high for the social space, now given Sony's psp philosophy(platform for the hardcore) is being considered for the vita can only mean the best of both worlds. In other words, this is good. People tend to overlook the smallest of detail when concerning psp's library. Sony has said that part of the big reason why psp was losing development support was due to the arrival of the ps3. Sony was stuck in transition, and many of the big name companies were stuck with no choice but to move their resources to the ps3, thus hindering psp develpment cycles and opening the doors to countless of ports instead. The philosophy lies in that of the vision, which is a powerful handheld build for the hardcore crowd. That hasnt changed, and for that, this is good. However, the vita is a different platform with many different inputs so regardless of the philosophy things will depend on the development houses and how they make use of the vita platform. So that will make them different in many aspects. The philosophy maybe the same, but the support lines are not.
are u out of your mind? the only reason there were no games on the psp is because of piracy! But look at it now, couple years later in 2011 PSP has the best games lineup, even better than the PS3! Look only at the hardcore games PSP is getting and all those fancy j rpgs!

ps vita is actually cheaper than the psp was when it first came out if you adjust for the massive inflation we've had lately. 250 dollars in 2005 is around 290 of todays dollars.
well i think its good , give me the NA release date and Resistance Burning Skies as a launch title please !!!!!
read the article and care to explain why you guys disagree with my opinion so i can understand you
Hopefully you can hack it like the PSP, then it might be worth the price. First thing I did with the PSP, pretty good device to play classic games on FOR FREE!
Gotta try harder than that when you're trolling. I know you can do better raven
Not to discount the value of old classics.. but they can't justify the price of any new device. The Vita isn't going to add anything to those games that the PSP isn't already delivering. The value is in the platform's own content. i.e. Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Gravity Rush.
I'd punch you but you're not worth it a**hole troll!
Oh you are going down under the bridge you troll Ban him mods he supports hackers and terrorists. He is no better than Osama Bin Laden.
Now we can shoot Raven-Nomad in the face even though he's unarmed and dump his body in the sea, because we have no hope of a conviction in a court of law! Then we can all be happy our country shoots unarmed people in the face instead of trying them in the courts, like that could ever be a good thing!
I think raven hates America, you commy
What philosophy, that you can play your ps3 games on the go? resulting in ports, yhh think thats what the psp philosophy was
which philosophy? the one where they bombed in game sales everywhere but japan?
LOL I so knew that Sony would act the same.. That's why my next handheld console is going to be the 3DS.. Don't you get what's going on fanboys? If they treat the VITA like the PSP then it means no games for you within 2 years after the console launched..
Ah the old "Ish gots no gamesh!" argument. And then to top it off.. you somehow claim the 3DS with it's bustling library is the answer. Sweet irony. Or rather.. rampant hypocrisy.
lmao somebody got owned for trollling , better stay quiet if you dont know what you are saying eatingvodka boy
I wonder how many of you actually read the article?. My guess- not a lot.
i actually did , thats what i said i think its good , they are trying to give us the best portable gaming experience yet , and personally i think they are delivering everything i thought the psp would have been , finally im gonna get that 2 analog sticks experience that i have always wanted on the go plus i will get full psn functionality and what it looks like to be a solid , very solid launch line up , im in , just waiting on that release date to get more excited !!!
It is good to be able to play some real action games in a portable device as Vita. real=I mean dual analog stick and faster cpu that can garantee fast pace action games. but what I realy loved on my PSP and also the Ds were the amount of great rpg games and some of those had unique game play such mario&luigui bowseer's indise story(this one all bc the touch screen on the ds). btw, I expect that Vita can handle an open game with si milar graphic powere of a Syrim.But ayh, I do not expect a game like that coming before 3 more years after launch....
Make a game similar to Pokemon and market it. The Vita will have a much better chance of selling than the PSP did.
I want custom soundtracks on the Vita.
There is custom soundtracks on the PS3, but if the devs aren't strong-armed in to utilizing the feature, they won't include it! MS forces the developers to implement certain features(X-game chat, custom soundtracks) as standard or your game won't pass approval!
@instanbull Out of my mind? Hmm I dont think so. But if you think piracy was the only reason for psp's lack of support then you are obviously being naive my friend. Fact is even the DS was and is still plague with piracy, though it is not as publicly widespred as the psp hacks those are still there. Put it like this, I am not saying that the ps3 launch was the "only" reason for psp's lack of support. I am simply adding what Sony themselves said was one of the major issues with psp support. The truth is, there are simply many factors that play into it and we can argue all day over them. However the fact remains, psp was and is Sony's first (true) attempt at the handheld market and like any unexperience comer made its mistakes along the way. Of which, many are being addressed with the vita platform.
Some people need to calm down... they just mean that it will be aimed at core gamers.
'The core principle is to provide the best portable gaming experience possible'. That philosophy. Not to do the EXACT same thing they did with the PSP.I guess reading isn't some peoples strong suit.
