The PS Vita – An Under Appreciated Handheld Console?

The PS Vita brought many new innovative features and a handheld that looked like every geek and gamer would have dreamed of – home console quality graphics, front touchscreen and rear-touch panels, front and rear cameras for augmented reality and games, the sought after dual analogue sticks, a sharp and vibrant larger screen all packed with a new ‘Bubble’ OS that’s user-friendly. Having had the console since launch, its a console that has still kept me company and much valued that I never considered selling at all compared to other early adopters I know and hear about. (PS Vita)

by the general media maybe, but by those that own it, no. i haven't played my Vita for nearly two weeks now but i still appreciate the tech inside and do not in any way regret the purchase. i haven't watched a Blu-ray movie for months now but that doesn't mean that my Blu-ray player isn't appreciated, it just means that there haven't been any films i've wanted to watch.

This needs to be noticed by more gamers

When the price comes down in a few months(it WILL)more gamers will notice. It's funny how every prediction about the Vita I made has come true so far. I'll say it again, selling a $250 PS3 and a $250 Vita simultaneously was a ridiculous idea.

$250 + the price of a memory card and a game comes out to a $300+ price tag. How many PS3 owners(the target market for Vita) do u think have that kind of cash laying around just to play inferior versions of games that they already have?

@radracing- Theres a difference between bashing and educated criticism. I predicted that the Vita would have a hard time penetrating the market a $250 price point just after Kaz announced the price. And guess what, depite the usual disagrees from Sony loyalists who close their ears and cover their eyes when confronted with reality, I was right.

Vita just had its worst sales week ever.

The system, I didnt think I could say this, is have a much rougher time than the 3ds had, because the one thing the 3ds had for it was it always had even at launch 3rd party exclusive content, which allowed it to push systems and never be in superiorly dangerous sales territory

I dont understand what all the fuss is about, every new console gets bashed after launch. Can't remember one that wasn't. As soon as more games come out (tons in the next 2 months) the talk should end.

Its not really getting bashed though.
It got great reviews by the gaming and mainstream media.
The thing is its selling very poorly and this is something that media isn't going to ignore.
Because the fanboys cant handle any criticism against their machine or corporation of choice this translates to them as hating or bias etc etc
They dont see things rationally

Agreed. On N4G, criticizing Vita is the equivalent of wanting Vita to fail. I don't understand where people get this crazy mentality that they need to verbally defend a bunch of computer chips.

once there are more games, more people will buy it, i only have 1 actual vita game, and there are no more i want until the 17th. but it is an amazing peice of equipment.

I love my Vita the first handheld that really lets you play home console equivalent quality games on a handheld. I like my 3ds but how long will N64 remakes keep me busy.

Time will fix all the skeptics and unappreciative folks towards the PSVita.

It takes time for life(Vita) to grow.
