Why the PS Vita Will Fail

I don't think the PS Vita is going to find much success. The hardcore audience would rather play games like Uncharted on their home consoles, not on the vita.

I guess that is why 3DS is the fastest selling console of all time...because people would rather play games on home console?

Thanks for showing an absolutely blatant comprehension of the core gamer. Ridiculous articles like these are why Examiner is down to one and a half stars on this site. Not much further to go...

I encourage everyone to click on the examiner.com link beneath Read Full Story and rate them appropriately.

This guy attempts to speak as if he was the voice of every gamer.
Saying things like "we..." and "no one wants to..."
I'm sorry, who is "we"?

This guy believes that no gamer wants to play Uncharted on a handheld.
Imagine if he had told Nintendo to not make a Mario game on a handheld because no one wanted to play it outside of a home console.
Ridiculous.

And yet, Uncharted:GA keeps selling and so does the Vita.

Every real gaming handheld since the GameBoy has had console-like games among quicker to pick-up-and-play games. Including the PS Vita.

He basically wants all games on the VIta to be like iOS games. Because, you know, f*** depth and gameplay! Right?
He misses the point entirely. The fact that the PS Vita isn't made up of a bunch of phone/iOS games is what separates it from the rest.

So far, I'm having a blast with it.

"The hardcore audience would rather play games like Uncharted on their home consoles, not on the vita."

"Sony is under the impression that gamers want to play the same, or close to the same, experience on the go. This kind of experience cannot be played out in the ten to fifteen minute walks down the street or wait at the doctor’s office."

Different strokes for different folks. There are people that have always wanted a console experience on the go. If you don't want that then buy a 3DS or stick with you iOS games.

What I like about the Vita is that it further diversifies mobile gaming.

Imagine if the Vita only played games similar to those on the iOS. You'd actually then have a valid argument about why buy the Vita when I can have the same type of experience on my smartphone.

Imagine if the Vita played games similar to the 3DS/had the 3DS' graphics? You'd then make the argument on why you should buy the Vita over the 3DS as the 3DS has all of nintendo's first party games.

Thats the sentiment I've been trying to find the words to express with the iDevice comparisons. Thanks. Bubble+

There are many "10 to 15 min games" on the Vita.

But for some reason, the moment Sony releases Uncharted on it, every game on the Vita suddenly isn't quick to pick up and play.
The Vita has games for every taste.

The hardcore audience games their asses off, whether it be home console, handheld, arcade...any chance they get. I really hate that argument..like the hardcore audience only plays one type of game.

It's the 10 to 15 minute thing that annoys me about this argument. Yes, in this world there is absolutely no situation where you would want to be playing a game on the go for longer than 15 minutes. Okay, this is true. We've just ignored long train/plane/car/coach journeys, because we can't make our shallow argument when we take that into consideration. Idiots.

It's not even just those situations though. Sometimes I'll pick up a handheld at home "wow, you're stupid. You could just go play uncharted on your PS3" Yes I could indeed, but I've already done that, haven't played golden abyss though, have I?

What else is annoying about this whole "don't want a console experience on the go" thing, is that where does it say "only for console ports" in anything related to the vita, beyond articles like these? Nowhere. Just because the machine is capable of producing those kinds of experiences (which is nothing short of impressive) doesn't mean it's only allowed to do that and can't have anything at all designed for short arcadey fun. I mean, it has ridge racer and wipeout, so pick your game for your wait. At the doctors? go do a quick race or two. Flying half way around the world? Go jump into a epic story driven experience like uncharted. The thing already caters to what they're complaining it's not meant for. RAGE.

Also, I really think SSX would be an awesome port to make to vita, since it's all about beating scores and race times and from the demo, runs take only a few minutes. Hey wait a sec, that's a console experience suited to be played in quick sessions. Oh but I guess that will never happen, you can't have home console experiences on the go, you see. People don't want that. SMFH

Or the wifes hogging the TV - watching eastenders/coronation street/ emmerdale/ river city/ holby city/ casualty or any of the other mind numbing televisual extravaganzas that she delights in torturing me with.

I play games when I'm at home. I used to have a DS but I just gave that to my niece. There are too many games I have to play on PS3 and 360 and I really don't have time for another console. When I travel I like to read a book.

Another failure article that should be reported and ignored by the playstation vita. This site should be cleansed and wiped clean from this type of garbage.
