NowGamer - In the run up to PS Vita's Japan launch, we've been checking out everything you need to know about the console. While the PS Vita launches in the UK 22 February 2012, we thought we'd continue our examination of the console.
The future is Apple VS Nintendo. The future is now.
People can always decide for their future. Revolution is now.
And Apple is leading that revolution.
It leads the illusion to live it.
And let's not forget games. The most important aspect along with controls :) So what does Apple and iPhone have anything to do with real gaming? LOL Here's a sad article: http://www.forbes.com/sites...
@Nathanexplosion While there's no doubt PSVita has better controls than the iPhone, the CPU, GPU and battery life of the iPhone (or any high-end smartphone) is getting updated on a yearly basis. With nVidia's quad-core Kal-el hitting the market later this year/early next year for tablets, you can bet by the end of 2012, flagship smartphones from HTC, Apple and Smasung are likely to have a quad-core CPU. But yes, you are right when you say that the PSVita (and the 3DS for that matter) offers better controls than any smartphone currently on the market (including the Xperia Play).
lol even PSP has better games than Iphone
@nathanexplosion do exaplain "REAL GAMING" for us ? wether you played pong decades ago or playing modern warfare 3 now gaming is gaming
[email protected] desperate xlolfanboyz "multiconsole"(yeah, sure), he's so desperate by ps3 leading in all departments, that even the vita is the devil for him :) every gamer knows that vita is way ahead of any portable device for gaming. "close second", same kind of haters, is going to amuse everybody with "bububu vita is doomed" like psp, bluray, ps3, move, etc : stop man, each time you FAIL
Dude all major gaming related companies had their important shot at shaping the future of video games not just Apple or Nintendo. Everyone of these made important contributions to the future. don't be narrow. Nintendo = Miyamoto, Game & Watch, Famicom, Super Mario Bros. Sony= TV sets, modern floppy disks, CD-ROM, CD player, PlayStation, memory cards Sega = Sonic, Virtua Fighter, Namco = Pacman Apple = Apple personal computer, iPod, iPhone etc etc
Apple admit Briton DID invent iPod, but he's still not getting any money! Apple has finally admitted that a British man who left school at 15 is the inventor behind the iPod. Kane Kramer, 52, came up with the technology that drives the digital music player nearly 30 years ago but has still not seen a penny from his invention. And the father of three had to sell his home last year and move his family to rented accommodation after closing his struggling furniture business .

I guess my comments ruffled a lot of fanboy feathers. There is about to be a dramatic seachange in the gaming industry. The likes of which has not been seen in over 15 years. The world you grew up in is about to vanish right before your eyes. And major players in the game will be reduced to mere memories, like Sega and Atari. I do not welcome this new future, I do not support it. I'm just smart enough to see it coming. Let's all hope we survive the change. Many people who are core gamers now who will drop out once the transition has begun.
They are both great in specs (iphone lacks controlls - which is necessary for good games). But I personally can't resist Nintendo first party Games
Nintendo's got an insane lineup that the competition just cant compete with!!! MH3 + 4, KH3D, RER, Mario Kart, Kid Icarus, Paper Mario, DQ7 Remixed (Rumored), Pokemon, Professor Layton 2012 the 3DS is going to blow my mind!!! o_0 This site has too many grafex whores....
Yeah maybe they have a different opinion of nintendo games than you guys do. "This site has too many grafex whores...." Right so because people don't want to pay top dollar for hardware and games from 10+ yrs they are gfx whores. No idiot it's nintendo refusing to advance it's handhelds to a reasonably modern lvl in regards to hardware thats the issue. You nintendo fanatics can scream graphics whores all you want, it doesn't change the fact that it is a new handheld with old obsolete tech inside of it. When you start a whole new generation of consoles/handhelds, there is a expected significant jump in visuals ect. To justify you spending $200+ on the next interation of that line. Sony can release a powerful handheld at a very reasonable price before long, so what is nintendo's excuse? Learn the difference between actual graphics whores and people that aren't going to reward companies for intentionally using old less powerful hardware. For the sole purpose of maximising profits, when they can release a more powerful system while still maintaining a healthily profit margin but don't.
Funny thing about the Nintendo crowd that shout 'graphics whore' is that whenever the topic of the Wii U comes up, they all start to praise the graphics...
Let us know how that works out for you.
go back to your hole !
vita owns both on specs & games.. vita launches with 12 first party games! that's crazy.. + vita will have real online gaming. which will be prtety much a first for a portable machine
Specs wont convince the masses to buy a Vita. The only ones drooling over a dedicated handheld are gamers. The majority want a smartphone or other device that compliments their lifestyle.
But who is to say they can afford an iphone? The phone shouldnt even be in these types of discussions, its just ridiculous.
'The majority want a smartphone or other device that compliments their lifestyle.' Sure, phones offer more functionality than a gaming device so it's obvious that more people will end up buying a phone, but you won't see many people buying the iPhone purely because of the games. If you want a platform purely for games then pick the Vita and/or 3DS, for everything else then it'll be the iPhone.
@cynicical: and there inlies the million dollar question. What sales target does Sony have for the Vita to prevent the Vita going the same way as the Go. Is Sony hoping to shift 5, 10 or 20 million in the first year to continue investing into the Vita. Also, if the Vita gets hacked early on will developers run for the hills like they did with the PSP? After owning 5 PSPs and a Go I'm going to play a game of wait and see.
The iPhone shouldn't even be on this list, it's unfair considering a new iphone is released every year when the Vita and 3DS are designed to last 5-6 years. Honestly, if you're looking for a dedicated gaming machine then it'll be the Vita and the 3DS only. The iPhone will never be able to match the quality of games that the other platforms offer.
Have none of the above like to keep it that way.
The specs on the 3DS CPU are a little better than I thought. The RAM is sorely lacking though. I really hope that Nintendo is partnering with Youtube for user created video content. The 3D video is what differentiates it most I think from the others.
PS Vita and 3DS = Buttons iPhone = No Buttons PS Vita and 3DS win.
Yes I agree. The iPhone wasn't designed to be a gaming device in the first place which is why it will suck for anything other than casual games. Viva la vita. XperiaRay
People seem to forget games and controls when talking about gaming. Who gives a crap how great your specs are if you have no games? The VITA has great games and has the controls that make it more versatile then any of the others. Two joysticks make all the difference in the world.
under ram PSVita also has 128 MB of dedicated GPU ram!
under ram PSVita also has 128 MB of dedicated GPU ram! which is kinda important
regardless of what they missed, did anyone here actually read that? PSVita clearly comes out on top... it really bemuses me that the initial posts seem to ignore that fact.
Super and Smart Phones and tablets lack physical controls as of now so the point goes to dedicated handhelds. However by 2012 and 2013, these Super Phones and Tablets will be vastly more powerful than the Vita and 3DS and some of those phones will have physical controls like the PS phone running a next generation Quad core chipset from Nvidia or Qualcomm.
Having controls- i.e. buttons- on those devices generally defeats their purpose. Smartphones started off with buttons, and now they're all touch. For their evolution, gaining buttons again would be going backwards. And since that is the case, they will never be able to reach the gaming capability of a dedicated device whose controls were designed with games in mind.
I'm tired of seeing people talk about phones on a gaming website.
Also the amount of new games that keep surfacing for vita & vita is still 3 months away from launch. P.S...Were going to see months of game releases on vita & more new original games will probably get announced during the months after vita launches on feb 22nd 2012! Cheers Gamers & Happy Gaming!
lol iphone doesn't have the price,games,controls,even graphics,low fps in 3d games i cant even compare it to my psp 500$ for a crap ------------ Vita & 3DS Wins
From a gamers perspective, iPhone doesn't belong here. 3DS and PS VITA are both welcome in my home.
XD People get so worked up about these CPUs. you know that ARM cortex quad core? Your pushing 2ghz pentium 3 right there. Hopefully apples dies off soon, Im not fond of their massive prices for older hardware.
