GameZone's Vito Gesualdi has five good reasons why you should consider skipping the Vita launch and investing in a PSP. Does he have a point, or is he just a cheap bastard?
Screw you, im buying a Vita.
"Screw the Vita, buy a PSP" Don't make me laugh.....
That's not actually such a bad idea if you're on a budget.
If your on a budget, why are you even getting a portable gaming device in the first place?! Its not even a necessity if you already have a console at home.
Haha, on a budget but like RPGs? That's probably the* best system for RPGs since the PS2. Crisis Core, Persona 1, 2 and 3, FF Tactics, Kingdom Hearts BBS, Tactics Ogre and all the PS1 classics on the ps store. You can get hundreds or even thousands of hours out of those games and they're not even expensive. So yeah, great option for the budget minded. edit: Oh and Valkyria Chronicles 2. And all the great platformers and God of War(s) and GTA Vice City Stories (the most underrated GTA ever, it's like San Andreas with a great story and great characters set in Vice City in your pocket).
You can play all the PSP (digital) games on the Vita anyway. lol I say just save up a little more and get a Vita.
@blumatt Not all of them. And once you've paid for all the memory cards required for a psp library, you might as well have bought a psp.
on these flamebait articles? sooner you stop sooner media will have to use another tactic to get hits and stop the sony bashing yeh ironic ive commented but its only to try and understand why noones learnt that dont feed the the dogs they have to go elsewhere title could have said..'5 reasons to get a psp now' or something LEARN PEOPLE
Meh, Sony's portables don't do it for me. They lack the handheld games. I'd rather play games like Crisis Core and God of War on a home console than a handheld. PSP is just a portable with games I'd rather play on a console. I haven't played my PSP for ages now.
@ commander to Kind of an odd argument. Saying the psp has console quality games so you DON'T play it? Were you hoping it would have crappy games that didn't look good?
Got one for 6 years. I'm ready for the new thing. Just wondering if there was an article saying "Screw The 3DS Buy a DS". Because that would've been a better deal considering the launch price for its tech, performance and games.
I've had a PSP since 2008. It's a fantastic system. But like others have said, where are the "screw the 3DS, buy a DS" articles? Because that's a very valid concept. Why are people just NOW on the side of the PSP when it has been nothing but a "dismal failure" for the last 5 years according to the media? PSP is awesome. Tons of RPGs, tons of great action games, and of course games like Monster Hunter, Peace Walker, God of War, etc. But I'm also getting a Vita.
How about we just click on gamezone.com at the top of the page beneath Read full story>> and rate your site and this story accordingly.
@shino Because everyone already had a ds. The same can't be said of the psp.
"If a sexy Monster Hunter exclusive gets announced, sure I'll jump in line." So he's just like all of Japan.
screw you all im buying all
buying a ps vita is buying all.
@imbrawler Screw you !!!
Exactly screw that stupid article Vita all the way f..ck Psp has been piece of crap
@Rynx Wow he called me troll. He's so original! He really got me there. Haha!
come on, why couldn't it just have read 'five reasons to buy a PSP' why did it have to have a pop at the Vita? what is wrong with these people?
Need them hits.
Ha yeah right Vita ftw
ps vita is everything i wanted the psp to be and maybe a little more , we are a month away to vita's launch , man i cant wait !!!
Since 2007-2008, people have been saying that the PSP was a software wreck and that it's prime had past way earlier than Sony thought because of piracy and all that.. but now that we have a new playstation to pick on, it's the thing to pick up?? Indecisive Media. It's all the rage this generation..
In 2007 and 2008, the psp wasn't worth it, while its main competitor was. Who would have recommended it? After all these years, it finally has a decent library And is relatively cheap. Most people already have a ds, so they are looking foward at the 3ds/vita and some may even see the psp as worth getting at this point, having overlooked it in favor of the ds earlier. The psp is doing better than the vita in Japan for this very reason. The psp may well experience a mini renaissance, though I don't expect it to be as big as Japan's.
"Since 2007-2008, people have been saying that the PSP was a software wreck and that it's prime had past way earlier than Sony thought because of piracy and all that.. but now that we have a new playstation to pick on, it's the thing to pick up??" Oh God, that is so true.
It's laughable to not spend $80 for such an upgraded piece of hardware. Especially with support dying for the psp.
I am getting the vita I just wish that I could roast marshmallows on it then it would be perfect.
The PSP has a PS2 level of great must play games. $150 gets you a PSP and 8-10 marvelous games.
I just got one so its all new to me glad i got the 3000.
I got mine a couple of years ago, but haven't had very many games to play until recently. You should try monster hunter, if you haven't already. There may be a demo on psn, but I'm not sure it's still there.
I bought a PSP twice before. One a few months after launch (the 1000, of course) and a 3000 for my birthday a couple of years ago after I lost my 1000. I sold my 3000 just before the launch of Uncharted 3, but I still have all the games on UMD. I'm hoping there's a good transfer program for the Vita to get downloadable versions of my UMD games (all the games I own are currently on the PS Store). Enjoy that 3000! I miss mine, but I'm getting way too excited for the Vita to even look at a PSP right now, let alone play one. haha
Yeah ill get vita when its 80 bux psp is hard to use in my big hands i really can only play in short bursts so far i used it a few times a month but have enjoyed it.
