Trendy Gamers: With the launch of the Playstation Vita First Edition Bundle happening this week, we thought it would be fun to go back in time to see how the Playstation Vita launch compares to the Playstation Portable launch.
Some people have criticized the PSP, for various reasons. Over the years it felt like I was fighting a losing battle as a defender of the system. Well to those people I say, the Vita does everything right. It corrects all of the PSP's flaws, and adds some unique brilliance of its own. It also has the best launch lineup since the Sega Dreamcast.
I take it that you'll be picking up the First Edition Bundle this week?
I know i will, only 3 days to go
Yes, paid in full months ago. Getting the early bundle, a number of accessories, and 6 games. (Not including PSN titles)
why would you back down? The psp was amazing. And honestly I like the psp launch titles more ape escape metal gear twisted metal darkstalkers lumines Tony Hawk’s Underground 2 Remix Wipeout Pure over uncharted really
there are some great titles there for the psp launch, but i'll have to go with the vitas launch games..its to big to list so i'll just list the games i'm getting... Uncharted modnation racers road trip ultimate marvel vs capcom 3 wipeout 2048 dynasty warriors next blazblue continium shift extend limited edition and then a few launch games i'm getting as download as soon as i get my vita. Gravity rush hustle kings super startdust delta and thats about.. 1/3 of the total launch games for the vita..alot of games that suits each individuals taste. :)
The Vita's launch is better in my opinion. Not only the great retail games but titles such as Escape Plan and Superstardust really take it to the next level.
Take out ModNation and Dynasty Warriors and I agree. Both of those games have been pretty average franchises in my eyes.
I will still take the psp.
I think the Vita lineup is the best I've seen.
in order of most to least wanted Gravity Rush Stardust Delta Shinobido 2 WipeOut 2048 Rayman Marvel VS Capcom Uncharted wow, when an Uncharted game is at the BOTTOM of the list, you know youve got a killer launch lineup!!
Did the axing of online in Modnation disappoint you as well? As soon as I heard the news, it went from a must have to an, I'll get it when its cheap.
for me, it went from near the top of my list to, "ill get it once online multi is patched in, until then I have absolutely no interest", online multi is a must for me, especially when it comes to racing! a racing game with no online has no value to me, at this point i wouldnt pay $5 for it they dropped the ball along with online multiplayer, dropped it down a very deep dark shaft, from which recovering may be extremely difficult
Great explanation! Maybe Little Big Planet Karting will come to the Vita and include online multiplayer?
i like what the psp represented but lack of extra analog kinda killed it for me, the vita is everything i eva wanted
Well... consider the following. Uncharted: Golden Abyss, while being an Uncharted game on a handheld, is a $54.11 handheld title for a single-player experience... ModNation Racers I never cared about. I played with it on the PS3 and found it to be a more linear Little Big Planet. Little Deviants is a tech demo for the PSV. WipEout 2048 is awesome, but so is the WipEout series. Marvel vs. Capcom and any other fighting games on a PSV are awesome. In all honesty, I'm gonna hold off until some role-playing titles come out, a price drop, or something happens, because the launch line-up is not doing it for me. I did fighting games, and I like uncharted, but the price points for the games and system are way too high for what it is at it's current state.
You guys are lucky! I have to wait till the 22nd because the first edition bundle is sold out at my place!
