Sony’s next handheld, the PlayStation Vita, is going to land here in North America very soon. Personally, I’m incredibly excited, but many of my fellow gamers are starting to get a little nervous about it.
I can't wait for the best handheld in history
I agree! Finally a full console experience in my hands. 3DS is great for small games but unfortunately a step down from the BIG consoles iterations. Oh yeah also I want a release date for LBP!
Cause the GBA has been out for years.
Yep, a portable SNES :D On topic, I'll by a Vita just for a Yakuza game.
i hope sony put a Little Big Planet online multiplayer demo on psn and a Resistance Burning Skies beta
I'm buying two games at launch. Uncharted for sure and I'm having a little trouble deciding what my second will be. I have it narrowed down to Rayman: Origins, Hot Shots Golf and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom. Hopefully that will get me through until LittleBigPlanet comes out. Can't wait!
Can't go wrong with any of those choices.
What about Wipeout 2048? I've heard a lot of people saying it's the best game on Vita. Although if you don't like racing gams it's understandable lol.
Love racing games, I was planning on getting Modnation until they announced it had no online racing :( I probably would go with Wipeout but I already have HD/Fury on PS3.
Is escape plan a launch title? That looks like a really cool & unique game!
yes but its downloadable only
Oh man, how could I forget about Escape Plan?? I'm pretty sure that is a launch title. It looks amazing. If it won't take up too much of the 4GB memory stick, I'll probably go with that one now that I think about it.
I'm on the Hype train!
Can't wait to get my hands on the Vita, less than a month to go :) Got the Wipeout bundle pre-ordered with Uncharted and Rayman Origins.
I get it on vday
Well if the 3DS managed to survive the attacks of crazed fanboys and bad press I am pretty sure that the same will happen with the Vita. By the end of this year when the holiday season arrives a ton of fanboys will be eating crow. Both the 3DS and the Vita are fantastic handhelds and while both of them have some flaws and their respective company's made some bad business decisions I really can't see either failing. @ElliePage The gameboyadvance is a bit archaic don't you think? Compared to the 3DS and the Vita it's hardware is complete and utter crap. Besides you can play GBA games on the 3DS and the Vita if you mod it. XperiaRay
The 3DS was advertised heavily in the states, so far I have not seen a single Vita ad. Again, Sony fails to market their products. Some Super Bowl ads would be awesome btw.
In the UK, Sony have been advertising the sh!t out of Battlefield 3, Fifa 12, Uncharted 3 and the Move since the Christmas period. The UK will probably get some Vita ads. I don't know about the US but it sounds like Sony's ads are just word of mouth about the Sony products nowadays.
My 3 first games for the PSVITA will be. Gravity Rush. / because it is the most beautiful, innovative game I have seen, for the most innovative gaming system ever. WipEout 2048. / because I love racing games and it looks amazing. Uncharted: Golden Abyss. / because I loved the franchise for my PS3, and it seems it will provide a new gaming experience on the PSVITA.
ok this is what im getting on day 1 Vita 3G/wifi 32 gb memory card screen protector Uncharted Little Deviants Wipeout Escape Plan and Gravity Rush ( if its part of the launch line up )
Sounds a lot like what I am getting. I am downloading all my games but this is roughly what I will have on day 1: PlayStation Vita First Edition Bundle 32GB Memory Stick Downloaded games: Gravity Rush BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend ModNation Racers: Road Trip Yup sounds like an awesome week off for me. Lol.
I'm going with Uncharted, Marvel vs Capcom and Hot shots.
To be fair im not going to get it this year and FF Type-0 for the PSP will be enough to keep me occupied.
But what of you can download it to the Vita. Better screen and controls would have me buy that version in a heartbeat.
I wouldn't be surprised if they announce it on the Vita for the west and not on the psp
My first game for the my Vita will be Disgaea 3. No hurry for the hardware now since the game won't be available at launch and I don't find any of the other offerings appealing.
Lumines! Also thank goodness for tax return money! Gonna splurge this year! :D
Im waiting for a good preorder bonus, but I'm getting Lumines and Rayman or Modnation. They pretty much just confirmed they are patching online for it. Remote play and playing mgs pw with dual analogs should keep me happy till LBP comes out.
its gonna take me some time to get the money to buy one but it will be worth it :D for gravity rush, uncharted GA, LBP, Resistance BS, remote play, Lumines >:D
