I love my PS3 but man, the Vita doesn't interest me in the slightest.

I've already got a PlayStation console to play all the great titles, why do I need a semi-portable one?

You could always get a 3DS if portable console gaming isn't your thing.

You don't "need" a semi-portable one. Personally I've always wanted a portable handheld that has games that closely resemble console experiences and Vita does just that.

@ Outside of the box

Why would he buy a 3DS if he isn't interested in portable gaming?

SandwichHammock2383d ago

@Dante and the 8+ agrees

Reading comprehension low today?

GameOn2383d ago

lol whatever, It doesn't make sense never mind your reading comprehension.

When did he say he isn't interested in portable gaming?

He's essentially saying why do I need a handheld that offers a PS3 experience when I already have a PS3.

And my reply to that is you could always get a 3DS if console gaming on the go isn't your thing while I however always wanted a console gaming on the go experience.

Obviously you wont play all the great titles on your ps3 alone .

Here is your why . I never needed a portable/handheld console , i only liked those because of their unique titles .

The rest depends upon if/how much you care for those exclusive titles , and/or if having multiplatform handheld games, is a plus to you . So of course you dont NEED to play cod on the go ... but you might , as an example , NEED to play Gravity daze and persona the golden , period .

I think the Vita will have a good holiday season, but summer will be bone dry.

Nitrowolf22384d ago (Edited 2384d ago )

Summer in general is typically dried for all system, well for any big titles at least. They usually release before or during the fall/winter season.

The software lineup already looks like a shriveled up corpse and it's only been 2 months since launch.

Sad that Vita has more going for its library than the 3DS did in a years time.

Baka-akaB2383d ago (Edited 2383d ago )

The software lineup is so far great . Problem is , it will be devoid of major news for a while , bare a few exceptions .

For once it would have helped to have less launch titles and those distilled from feb to May , instead of having it almost whole , and little else afterward , beyond looking forward , in the immediate , to stuff like Gravity daze in June

It's gonna be a dry summer , as expected with most platforms , especially so on vita , even in japan with mostly psp stuff and Persona 4 to look forward to . Not a bad thing actually , since it will allows to catch on over 30 potential good vita games since launch , that were otherwise ignored .

The bad news is , it leaves the Vita out of the immediate newsfront till e3 , stuck with the rabbid media dogs on its heel and drooling without reasons over tablets and phones .

Gravity Rush should've been a North American launch title.
