The IGN PlayStation Team descends on a PlayStation Vita event to get the straight scoop.
Ima get a Vita and HD Beers.
I just came for the HD beers man that was awsome. Still getting a Vita day one
We love it.
ugh ugh ugh.... i'm not a handheld gamer at all (haven't owned one since the Gameboy Color), but the Vita is really growing on me. i just don't wanna splurge and have it end up being an impulse buy. especially when i can play games that are as good or much better on my TV or PC screen instead of a 5" screen, or however big Vita's screen is. but still.....i kinda want one. lol.
Not really that interested in it, personally.
So, you just don't like video games? I understand.
If the Vita actually had any games that looked interesting, I might buy it.
@Sobari Soooooo what you are saying is you have no taste then?
Based on all these comments I'm guessing the majority of people on this site are just like the guy with the Infamous backpack...
The games cost too much and the system cost to much to do so little and that is just my opinion before anyone start crying about it and the mass disagrees start. I rather save a extra 250 and get a tablet that do so much more then play games. I cant wait when tablets have enough power to play games like Crysis on medium settings and with windows 8 working with Arms CPUs now and Nvidia working with Arm that day is coming soon. Its just a matter of time and handheld systems like the Vita will become history, it kinda already happening in Japan as I type this. I know someone is going to bring up exclusives games but from what I have seen multi plats matter more then the exclusives do well at least going by the sells I have seen.
so many things in your comment are just sad, but its your opinion so can't fault you on that. Its just with an attitude like that gaming would be doomed in 10 years.
trophies , cross platform play , psn online chat with friends , message with your psn friends , cross game chat , full psn functionality , proper gaming on the go ( playing Uncharted Golden Abyss is like playing the Uncharted series on the ps3 ) same kind of experience , everything that makes uncharted great is there , i mean i have an ipad 2 and an android galaxy nexus and i have played the vita twice already , i wouldnt , i mean i wouldnt even dare to compare the gaming experience between them, vita wins hands down , heck vita wins with just showing up to the fight with just the 2 analog sticks , forget about having full psn integration in the palm of you hands , its the proper way to game , i understand little games are cute and fun to play on tablets and phones but without phisycal buttons hardcore experiences are not the same at least not to me . i bought shadowgun the other day ( oh my god ) i dont know why i bought it , it was a waste of money , the game plays horrible for christ sake btw this is my opinion , i think 95 % , i dont wanna say 100% but the vast majority of people dont buy smartphones or tablets with gaming as their primary reason , people buy handhelds with gaming on their total minds i think sony is missing a golden chance here , if they want the vita to be THE connected handheld to own they should be taking advantage of vitas online functionalitites , full psn integration and social integration and release online multiplayer demos , online multiplayer betas , like little big planet online multiplayer demo , Resistance Burning Skies beta ,Call of Duty beta , Killzone beta and the like , they would probably get more sales to those games and more people connected to psn . hey i respect your opinion but i dont agree with it , there will always be that hardcore market , well thats what i think anyways
Yeah, right. And the consoles are doomed because you can play Crisis on PC with max settings. Oh, wait!.. >>I rather save a extra 250 and get a tablet that do so much more then play games. A tablet for $250 that plays Crysis on medium? Really? Also, games are not end with Crysis. Also, good luck with controls. Also, good luck with exclusives.
they have a tablet coming soon that will do that and instead of paying 250$ you will be paying 1,100.00 for it so the choice is obvious ps vita .
Ohh you mean like go on facebook? Yea vita can do that.. Maybe you meant take and share photos? Oh wait vita can do that too.. Hmm did you mean go online? Dang vita can do that too.. Umm what about movies? Nope, vita's go that covered... How about game sharing with a console? OHH wait thats right tablets cant do that but vita can.. Hmm Im baffled by your statement then... What cant the vita do?
What the hell is wrong with these disagree'ers?
Why, they came all the way from IGN, just to say hello... http://www.youtube.com/watc... On topic, I think I'll wait it out for a couple of months or at least until MK drops. It looks awesome though. I haven't been interested in a handheld for a long time, but the Vita might convince me to dabble with portable gaming a bit.
I played it at gamestop. It was pretty cool. I didn't really see any games I wanted yet. But I am sure I will find something eventually:) Little Deviants was pretty cool... I like how the rear touchpad works too.
I think the more important question is what do Canadian gamers think about the Playstation Vita.
Why do you say that?
Saying just because doesn't answer anything and implies that you either don't know or can't put your thoughts into words. However even if you could chances are it wouldn't matter as speaking all of Canada with just opinion does equal a fact.
I think it's epic! Day one!
Dont like the rear touchpad and inferior PS3 ports. Will stick with my PS3. Cost way too much and overhyped also.
The games lineup is very disappointing..it doesn't even have any jrpgs ffs. FFX HD is my reason to get one and it won't be out until at least september...
Ok...so, that's it? No JRPG's? It seems to have everything else. Oh wait...it DOES have a JRPG. It's called Gravity Rush. -_-
Who gives a F about gravity rush? I'm talking about a new Dragon Quest or FFX game for the Vita etc. In the same way that Nintendo were stupid to release the 3DS without a new pokemon game, sony were stupid to release a console that was launching first ( and primarily ) in Japan, with no JRPGs. I cancelled my pre-order because of the weak games lineup...so yeah they messed up and lost sales as a result. The whole launch lineup is casual/cookie cutter games aimed at 12 year old's.
actually Gravity Rush/Daze is not a JRPG disgaea 3/persona 4,those are JRPGs !
You do know that RPGs(especially JRPGs) are the most costly and time consuming games to make right? I cannot think of any system launch that has ever had a AAA RPG made for it day one because they would cost to much to get so little in their endeavor(due to small userbase). RPGs(big ones) will come with time like every other system. In the mean time look into..... -Dungeon Hunter: Diablo-esque top down action RPG. Release Day. -Disgaea 3 Return: Strategy RPG. Release April 14th. -Gravity Rush: 3rd Person Action game with RPG elements.Release Day. -Warrior's Lair(Ruin):Diablo-esque action RPG with really cool continuous play options. March 31st(?) Also Persona 4 The Golden should be out mid year and expect FF Type-0 to be ported to Vita for Vita within the year as well. They will come....
"Who gives a F about gravity rush?" ummm,I do and basically more than 90% of the people buying the Vita,it's a new IP and it looks astonishing to say the least,you don't have to be a d*** about it you know ? -.-
Would love to get it day one...but im going to have to wait for the price to drop and or a different model psv 2000 or something.
I enjoyed playing Uncharted at Gamestop on the PS Vita. MY only complaint so far was the thumbsticks. I wish they had the thumbsticks straight from the Dualshock 3. IMO They feel so weird because how small they are. I also wished the PS Vita had R1 R2 L1 L2
You cannot make Dualshock thumbsticks on a handeld. They'll break.
The PSV already have Left and Right shoulder buttons. Those are your R1 and L1. The back touch pad can be customized to have R2, R3, L2 and L3.
Wow a lot of people are butt hurt to see so many people make positive comments on the Vita in the video. What really must irritate them is when Greg asked if they were going to get a Vita despite bad sales and they said yes. Anyways I hope they have a similar event with the rooms in Spain but I doubt it. XperiaRay
With the price of the unit, the memory cards and the games being what they announced, this American thinks it's a tad on the costly side. I really don't like the idea of a back touch screen either, but I'm trying to keep an open mind. I want to see what people think of it when it's actually out, so it's going to be a wait and see for me.
I might wait a year or so after release so they can smooth all the bugs and minor problems out, and the fact that most of the launch titles will be a lot cheaper. Either way Im getting one of these.
Too expensive to warrant a day one purchase. If it dropped to under $200 and the memory units come down in price I'd be a bit more interested. $179 would be a sweet spot.
Stop lying. You wouldn't be interested anyway. Your every comment on a Sony-related item is negative. If it was a Microsoft handheld at the same price with the exact same/equivalent library, you'd be all over it. You're just trolling, as usual. $250 is an extremely good price for such a piece of technology. The library is enticing and extensive, and only looks to get better. Gravity Rush, Uncharted, Hot Shots, Little Deviants and plenty more say the system looks like it's got a bright future ahead.
can't f**king wait.
