MediaKick's editor gives his thoughts and opinions on the PlayStation Vita one month after release.
i wonder how much money sony paid for this ad
I wonder why your wasting your time trolling
i wonder why we exist.
One month later for me. Im using it everyday while im home. Played on it for about 75 hours or more and I love it more and more!
Hows it feel being in the minority?
How's it feel not Even being able to afford the thing?...
Poor assumption on your behalf. Sony have failed to convince me to buy into the Vita and this is coming from a long term Sony supporter. Try using your brain or was your comment rushed because your late for school?
As your name, speaks for yourself, your not using common sense at all. I play all I want, whenever I want.
@CommonSense Who is this minority you speak of? Everyone I know that owns one, still loves it as much as the day they first received it.
Your name is so ironic because someone with common sense wouldn't even say something so stupid.
He isn't. I've done the same thing and love it.
Common sense isnt that common. Just because there are less Sony Vitas out there people who own it should not enjoy their time? That is the most ignorant way to look at it. Because there are less Sony TV's out there, they aren't the best? Pfft. My razor thin 3D LCD strongly disagrees. I've wasted enough time preaching to someone who is set in their ignorant ways.
I've actually gotten bored of the vita already, i don't think its all its made out to be, but hey that's just my opinion. And here come the 400 disagree's...
@ATI I think they just don't believe you have one, Because I don't. I love mine, still playing it everyday. My 3DS honeymoon period lasted a week. Its been a month with the Vita and I still love it as much as when i got it.
@Toman85, Agreed my vita is working great. I even used it to take video when I saw the TFC vs L.A Galaxy game and the toronto star has a pic of me doing it. The audio was reasonable considering I was right beside the bass drum of the marching band. Also using foursquare to get free beer from Steam Whistle is another bonus ( that alone pays for the vita). Games wise I still play LBP psp and lots of Hustle kings. Conclusion- Happy with mine and it gets me free beer.
So much win, bro. So much win. :)
"Im using it everyday while im home" Isn't the idea of a portable system to play it on the go?
Not necessarily. Portable consoles offer great gaming experiences that can be picked up, played a little, then set down. The whole idea that you HAVE to be on the move playing it is ridiculous. It's nice to lay in bed and play a game of Super Star Dust. Totally worth getting it day 1.
Also, theres nothing like having a full console experience in your bathroom when taking a dump, or having a bath, or taking a dump in the bath.
@Toman85, i'm with you this PS Vita is becoming an addiction just keep on playing :)
replied to wrong comment.
We need more games asap, god of war, killzone, gears of wars, cod, bf3, Sxt, grandia and of course legend of dragoon 2
The Vita needs killer exclusives and not just portable versions of PS3 games.
Which are being developed and releasing in a couple months along with exclusives that are already out, Like Uncharted. Once again, where is your common sense? Damn Troll.
Nintendo doesn't seem to have a problem creating killer exclusives out of portable versions of the console games. Heck a lot of them are just straight up ports from old systems, at least Sony is creating NEW games for it.
@CommonSenseGamer i totally agree with you on that. but consider how the Vita will get those unique exclusives you want. devs will need an incentive and that incentive comes from sales, so whilst i totally agree, i do also see the necessity for well know franchises to come out first to drive those Vita sales. early adopters will likely be PS branded already... these are the current target. once those reserves have been depleted, then and only then will devs consider risk against audience. 6 million usually garners more interest from devs, followed by 10 million, which should then tell us how the Vita will do in the long run. i believe the Vita will sell better than the PSP in the long run but i highly doubt it will beat the DS for lifetime sales. not that that really matters but it may at least keep 'some' Vita evangelists even footed for the foreseeable future. and i'd just like to say, before people blow a fuse, i'm the proud owner of the best handheld ever made and play it daily
Would be far better to spread those releases out over the course of the next year really. Also Gears? You're having a laugh.
All I now need is Monster Hunter on my Vita, I'll be set for long then. Uncharted and Wipeout are both amazing btw.
System is good. Launch was well done. Weekly downloads on PSN though Sony failed a bit. I expected some new stuff in decent proportions at least every week after launch to give those launch buyers a bit more special treatment for their support. But the PSVita itself rocks. Although the screens brightness could have been a tad more for when the sun is out. I remember how it was with my PSP Fat and Slim, the slim had such a bigger boost in brightness. Probably history will repeat itself with the PSVita slim.
The 3DS took a year before the good quality games began coming out so i say give the Vita the same treatment. The library is already really good with massive titles like Gravity Daze on its way. The games will come i believe & within a years time we will see what the results will be. For now it is still too early to tell how successful the Vita will be, either way i am loving every minute i spend with it.
One month and one day for me. And still laVit :)
Mark my words the Vita will outsell the Ps2 by 2014. Bookmark this page, make screenshots, etc etc.
We're all a little optimistic, but this is delusion, guy. Reasonable goals.
This is MY opinion, and as a citizen of this country I am entitled to form one of these. You can doubt me all you want, but I had a vision last night. And I'm going to stick by what I saw. The PS Vita is going to boom once a call of duty releases for it. (hate that game smh.) And that's only ONE of the many reasons I know it will outsell the playstation 2. Dont get me wrong,the ps2 is the greatest of all time. BUT, the vita, it's little brother, is going to get its time to shine. PLAY BEYOND
of course you are entitled to your opinion, just like we are entitled to the opposing opinion that anyone who thinks the Vita is going to sell in excess of 150 million units in two years is delusional. I doubt Sony even has the manufacturing capacity to make that many in such a short space of time.
@Young_ART so you think that the Vita will sell over 70 million a year? proof if you ever needed it that visions are not reliable
@Young_ART.. he wasn't bashing you. Whooo cowboy.
Opinion? More like a very wild guessing. An estimated guess would be: The PS2 sold like over what 140 or 150 mln. up to date? And it released in 2000/2001. Thats more than a decade ago. The PSP1 sold, what, 70 to 80 mln. over lifetime. That is, in about 7 years since it launched. And the sales came when it was at the 170 bucks pricelevel. So no. The PSVita won't sell double the PSP1 sold in 7 years at a higher price within 2 years of time. Those kind of PS2 sales numbers is not going be reached in such a short time. And remember: the only handheld that really sells large numbers it the one that has Mario, Pokemon, Monster Hunter and Nintendogs... You may dream on though. But those are not very real. And your vision, I'd say, drink less alcohol mate!
Loving the Vita. Just bought Unit13 and cant wait to play it. Since the purchase, Ive spent more time playing the Vita than my PS3. As for content, along the Vita games, i have a library of free minis, ps1 games and psp games. Cant wait for a Vita Phantasy Star Online and a Vita hack n slash! One month on and this still ranked as the best gaming handheld I have ever purchased.
Really enjoying mine so far. Uncharted, modnation racers, motorstorm rc and wipeout 2048 have all been fantastic. With the great games coming out in the coming months things can only get better :D
loving the vita so far...very surprised by the battery life and can't wait to see the library in the future
all the vita needs rite know is a massice RPG!!!!!! like tales of , final fantasy, lv 5, dbz game naruto game, hentai game, and skype/ youtube
Lol hentai game?
loving the vita so far got it at Launch Really enjoying Uncharted, motorstorm rc and wipeout 2048 and a bit of fifa worth every penny i paid . Its not for every one just wish they stop slagging it off all the time best gaming handheld I have ever purchased till the next one lol
I love the vita. its my go to platform for now. crosss game party chat and music for any game are a win. facebook and email and gps bonus.
I play mine every day, for the most part I love it. Wipeout has strangely been a bit of a let down for me though, unless I get to the front of the pack pretty quickly all the tail exhasts are too shiney and I can't see where I'm going! I was suprised how long Uncharted was finished it yesterday took me two and half weeks of lunchtimes much longer than the ps3 ones I think.
Great post and 100% agree. What a piece of kit, just keep falling in love with it more each day...
Only people that bash the PS Vita are the xbots that cant afford to buy one
Time to burn the trolls. I bought my Vita for 220€ with a free 8GB memory card plus due to a contest in N4G I won a 32GB card. I've owned the Vita since launch and I love it because to me it's the best handheld on the market plus it has amazing games with many more to come in the near future. I enjoy being part of the minority because it's nice to belong to a group with an exquisite taste in portables. Take that trolls :-P XperiaRay
