The latest Game Informer review scores include a Vita hardware (grade) and games, a 1.0, Jak and Daxter Collection, and more.
Vita got a good score but will it sell?
no... it's too expensive... it'l be the ps3 all over again. You won't see good sale figures until a year or two from now. It's unfortunate, but it's the truth.
Yeah Sony never learns, they really need some new people over there to guide the company in the right direction.
look at the tech behind it, how could you say its too expensive
How the fuck is it "too expensive"? And people pay $700 on smartphones yet a $250 is labeled expensive for a next-gen dedicated gaming handheld? How about defining for me what is 'inexpensive'.
* The PSP sold around 75 million units. Sony made the most successful non-Nintendo handheld system. What makes you think the PS Vita won't sell? * How in the world is it "too expensive"!? The 3DS launched at $250 as well and the PS Vita's hardware (power, controls, screen) and overall tech is more powerful and advanced. It's well worth the price. You guys don't know the value of sh*t rr simply being delusional. The PS3 was the cheapest Blu-ray capable hardware and has been steadily selling rather faster that it's main competitor, cutting the gap to only 2 million. How is that "not selling"??? Trolls gonna hate.
Everyone that was anyone was at E3 when the Vita pricing was announced and they liked it. No they loved it. Every talking head said the same thing, "Sony hit the sweet spot." It will sell. @solja below, You really have no idea which divisions in Sony were successful this past year and which were not, do you.
A game consoles value comes from its software, not its make up. If you are going to praise the machine, do so based on what it will do and not on pure potential alone. After all, no one would want it at all if it couldn't even play games.
I was speaking of value in terms of hardware. If you want to speak in a more philosophical way, then the PS3 has plenty of great games and the PS Vita is already showing signs of great game support. Just look at all the titles already announced for launch and the months to come. There's value either way you want to spin it.
So as a company decision do you think they should have made a cheaper console with less features that would be obsolete in 6 months? On Amazon with a game I can get a 3DS with Mario Kart (Pimped up DS) for £150. For £80 more I can get a PS Vita, memory card and game. I had the pleasure of playing a 3DS and to be honest from what I see that £80 difference is a bargain for Vita owners. (and no stupid second stick add on as an after thought, so add that it into the price difference and suddenly all this too expensive stuff is rubbish considering the gap in technology)
excellent point, org XII; if this was an iphone/ipad contraption people would already be lining up to buy it.
Nice to see the Vita get a lot of positive reviews. XperiaRay
7.75 is good. I wonder if vita will have +90% games on metascore. I kinda hope so. PSP only had 2 +90 games. Its kinda dissapointing to have consoles get many above 90s.
you must be joking The psp had hundreds of 90 quality titles overall screw false reporting like metascore
GOW COO&GOS, MGS PO&PW, KZ: liberation, Dissidia and Daxter were arguably 90's... but you must give a lot of mini's 90's if you can think of hundreds.
tactics ogre psp. Theres 1 you didnt mention. Logic broken
@elemental How is his logic broken because you name a single game?
dude only 2 games were mentioned. zhp, gungir, any 10 of the legend of heroes games, ect. the agmes are out there
where is my devil survivor 2 review? Where is my tales of graces review or ninokuni? or tales of abyss 3ds? I want that
How did Postal III get a 1? I mean it's the best game ever made! It's even better than any Mario game or Uncharted game ever made as well!!.... Oh my god XD I can't take myself seriously anymore XD
I know right? I was considering it to be this gens Ocarina of Time!!!.......lol
Too bad Army corps of Hell doesn't have the same tact of Pikmin. The strategy and sensibility was the great part of the series, not the fighting. (It's made by former Nintendo staff that worked on Pikmin)
sure hope the vita is a success. you guys do realize that if vita fails that Sony is most likely done as a gaming co. no more naughty dog,sucker punch, polyphony, mm.gg, ssm,zipper team ico and many more. the sony haters from the beginning of the ps3 launch will finally get there wish
Do u really think sony created vita and said to themselves "well this is it boys, its all or nothin". Its not like they went all in at a gambling table with all on the vita. Sigh...
"no more naughty dog,sucker punch, polyphony, mm.gg, ssm,zipper team ico and many more. the sony haters from the beginning of the ps3 launch will finally get there wish" So you're claiming that in the extremely unlikely setting where a failed handheld brings down Sony's entire gaming division, all these developers would rather be out of a job and shutdown the whole operation before they do work on any other platform? I guess that's how it would be if developers were fanboys instead of businessmen, but it's your right to view the world through whatever distorted lens you prefer...
Wow, you seem to know nothing about Sony then. How can a company that makes money off of: Cell phones, movies, DVD/Bluray players, TV's, car stereos, tablets and alot of other stuff. Have any problem with money if some how Vita go's bad (Talking in your fantasy world), in the real world it won't. Unlike 3DS, PS Vita has a great line up (The line up might not be the kind Japan likes, but oh well). Might want to know what you are talking about first, plus Sony has already said PS3 is doing really great (So no dropping out of gaming).
Now that has to be one of the most misinformed, knee-jerk comments I have ever read... O_O
Jak and Daxter 9.5 the highest score wow.
Lol its doomed...lol sorry, to expensive:/ ill stick wit a 3ds...
Why? Seriously. Why the FRICK would you stick with a 3DS? I got the chance to play the Vita this week for the first time. There's absolutely no way someone would choose a 3DS over a Vita, given the choice between the two. If you can get both...go for it. But if you only want one...get the Vita. Trust me.
just look at his name.......(fanboy)
3DS was $250 but people never complained about being expensive when it was first released.
I want history to be repeated like the release of the Nintendo 3DS by hardware sales of the Vita to be poor. My reason so is because the damn handheld console is too expensive and I sure as hell am willing to buy it at a lower price.
You're right. Sony should be losing MORE money on the Vita. Think before you type.
