Maybe the Vita hype would be higher if people didn't see it as "just another handheld," and viewed it as a "portable PS3."
ps vita is just a ps3 slim 2 and i love it.
It's both. It's a portable console. Now, is that a good thing? In an age where free or $1 games are popular, I say yes.
I couldn't agree more. I have this same debate with coworkers all the time. They all seem to compare it to an iPhone or iPad, when in actuality it is a new "console". Now, I own an iPad 2, iPhone 4S and a PS Vita, and I would definitely not even consider comparing them. They all offer great functuality for what is expected of them.
Updated my demo unit at work today and checked out the PS Store and map app. Awesome... seriously cannot wait.
It's a portable console capable of playing console quality games. Which in my opinion are better cheap portable pick up and play games stuffed with mini games. If I want mini games I'll just download them for smartphone. XperiaRay
Vita is just a $3,000 Gaming PC in ur hands
What I don't understand is how people don't see that when an iPhone or a new "DROID" is release, that people are willingly paying 300-400 bucks for one(and they don't think twice about it). But when a new device that literally is 3 to 4 times as powerful comes out $300 bucks is just too much for them to handle.... Also if you look at every console that has ever came out, all of them had some kind of proprietary memory. Sony isn't making it to piss people off, they're doing it so they can make money and not get screwed over to piracy like the PSP did. But I do think the price of the memory sticks needs to come down. I know they spent alot in development but to even get a WiFi model with respectable memory is going to cost upwards to 320(i think 16GB is respectable. 8GB is ok but if i want the space i need, then i need the 16GB). I have the First Edition Bundle on pre-order and I already have Uncharted: Golden Abyss in possession. and I can't freaking wait til Wednesday.
Well said. I had to wait until wed feb 22nd tho. Ammerica always gets stuff earlier and we in Europe pay more and got to wait longer. Hope it sells well!
Not quite the power of the PS3 but not as weak as the ps2. It's close to a PS3 though. I call it a handheld PS2.75 lol. And I want one.
