TVGB: "Sony's latest earnings report is a bit of a depressing read; the company's recorded a fiscal year 2012 annual loss of $5.74 billion, with the final quarter making up $3.2 billion of the sum."
Pretty good start. Considering it hasn't really had a killer app yet. The only thing holding it back is the that all the killer apps are still in the pipeline. I've been severely happy with mine though. Not a day goes by that I don't have it with me.
Same here. After exhausting Uncharted, WipEout and UMvC3 for all their worth, I've since dived headfirst into the enormous catalog that is the PSP selection, and man have I been more than satisfied. EDIT: not sure why there are some haters and disagrees in here.. I, for one, am glad that nearly 2 million others out there are enjoying the PSV as much as I am.
Got Uncharted and Shinobido. Now playing Valkyria Chronicles 2 :)
Burnout! Surprisingly good on the Vita - and missed as a native game. Peacewalker can use the right stick!!! Whoohoo. :)
Some notable PSP games I picked up: UFC 2010, Burnout Dominator, Burnout Legends, MGS Peace Walker, GOW Chains of Olympus, GOW Ghost of Sparta, GTA Liberty City Stories, Vice City Stories, Mega Man Maverick Hunter... just to name a few. There's just so much variety at such good value it's pretty difficult to get bored, honestly. :P
I'll be getting one for Christmas. Right now I'm trying to finish a backlog of games.
I haven't even finished Uncharted, I got distracted by Rayman and Lumines... I really should finish Uncharted.
Uncharted is a killer app. As for PS Vita worldwide sales at 1.8 million... in all honesty i expected much more sales by now. I've said it and i will say it again... the main problem with the PS Vita is the name. Most people think it's an updated version of the PSP like the PSP Go. Sony should of named it PSP2, and bammmm, everybody would know it's a next gen handheld. I think Nintendo is going to have the same problem with the Wii U. Many consumers will think it's a new gimmick for the Wii. They just should name it Wii 2.
Meh I wouldn't call Uncharted a killer app for vita. Not that Uncharted is a bad franchise but the vita version didn't live up to it's name. Which is mostly cuz naughty dog didn't make it. Also, I'd rather Vita's killer app be an exclusive like Gravity rush. Heard it was freaking awesome. A lot of people I know are waiting for it to release stateside to pick up a vita.
I agree. While visually it can hold up against the other UC games, the controls and gameplay are not on the same level. It is quite amazing how small details can make it a different game. Also, to many cut scenes. I have the feeling I just press a button to get to the next cut. Still a great game, but not "THE" game it was supposed to be.
1.8 million by the end of march? not excellent but pretty good considering the price and times we are in, it will pick up over time.
yup i hope it picks up from here
Call of duty vita, sales will go through the roof. Problem solved :P
I shall choose you when a GBA emu gets up and running on Playstation Suite.
Much appreciated. I wont let you down.
No good games for the Vita yet for me to even consider purchasing one. My PS3 died a long time ago too. I'd prefer to get it (PS3) instead of the Vita.
Quite the opposite for me. I'd rather get it for the Vita and if not available for the PS3. Vita is just so much more convenient.
I agree. I honestly havent even touched my ps3 since the Vita came out. Its much more convienient when u have a family and are trying to find gaming time. Plus i can even bring it to work. The Vita is what the psp shouldve & couldve been.
Everyone, myself included thought the vita would be 300+. It wasn't. everyone was very happy about that. What happened?
I remember that at E3 everyone thought it would be impossible to price the Vita at the same price as the 3DS. But when they found out it was 250€ they started calling the 3DS a ripoff and the Vita a great deal. Nintendo then drops the price by 80€ and everyone changes their minds. It's truly amazing how people assume that the Vita and the 3DS should cost the same because they are both handhelds when the truth is the Vita is more expensive because the tech and build quality are better than then what the 3DS has.

People don't think that the Hardware itself is expensive. It's the memory cards that make it expensive. You need a memory card to play some games and to be able to save them. Not including one in the box was ridiculous.
Vita is great , enjoying the hell out of Everybody's Golf , Rayman Origins , Mortal Kombat ,Motorstrorm RC , and that is not even counting all the other games available. Can't see it failing to be honest .
the first game on your list is GOLF!?!?!
Here we go again with all the knowlegable ppl here on manafacturing cose and so forth saying ps vita is over priced. Listen do some research before talking the oled screen at 250 or 00 alone is a steal bcus they are eeexpensive to make. Go online and see how much a small oled screen costs. Not to mention vita is more powerful than 3ds by a good margin. So let me get this straight Sony shouldbe selling this for 200? You guys are insane. Its a fact 300 isnt a price point cheap skates and kids can afford. Sony was well aware of that but they cant lower it it just woukdnt make money or break even. Yes the proprietary cards are expensive and it was a marketing plan to recoup money. Ppl stick with your Hondas and well stick with our Lambos.

I cant wait to get a Vita.. Ill get one as a little gift for myself on my bday in August! just adding up the cost of everything! Too many games I want, like Uncharted, Unit 13, Wipeout, Little Deviants, oh and Rayman Origins (the game looks BEAUTIFUL on the vita.) and Resistance Burning Skies (is that what its called?) and more.. Ive play Uncharted and Unit 13 and loved em. Cant wait! But anyway, for what you get the price is good. Just wait Sony will bring more games!
That doesnt sound so good
Im getting a psp since the Vita is too damm expensive, if Sony would have let a Umd compatible compartment i would give it a chance but im not downloading games from PSN just to play on the VITA. 1.8 looks somewhat respetable, and the 3DS is selling just because it still counts with the casual Market.
We got a tight ass over here.
26.6m Playstation devices sold, pretty impressive. PS2 at 4.1m OMG how long has this thing been out now, 12 years?
I got Rayman, Blazblue, and to keep me occupied till Resistance comes out: Disgaea 2 (cant stand Mao and characters from D3)
Can i stick Final Fantasy VII on the vita , which i have purchased off the PSN store ? if so i will run out and buy one very soon :D Edit : Just read Sony is working on it
Did you buy ff7 psp version on your ps3??? If so I think you can transfer it to your vita but not 100% sure
Was the PS One version i bought , wasn't aware of a PSP version. Hoping PS One support will be implemented soon :) https://twitter.com/#!/yosp... Be nice if saves were transferable too on the game save cloud storage.
