7 Signs PlayStation Vita Is a Disaster

"When Sony launched Vita a little over a year ago, it doubled down on the same strategy of amazing graphics and almost-console-like software.

But instead of improving on PSP’s performance, Vita’s first year has been much worse. Sony may have just announced that acclaimed indie game Hotline Miami (one of Wired’s top games of 2012) is headed to Vita, but it’s a lonely bright spot in an otherwise desolate situation."

Geez...another doom and gloom. How original. Don't forget the follow up piece: 7 signs the WiiU is a disaster. And you can finish it off with: 7 signs the Xbox 720 is a disaster ( even though it doesn't even exist yet). Yawn..........

JoGam3938d ago

If it aint 7 signs its 7 reasons or 5 or 10. Smh. Give me 1 reason why i should care what they are?

Aceman183938d ago


agreed this article or lack of article gets a Yawn.

I'd think they're just making a 'contrast' article against the massive Pro-Sony hype for the 20th and they're aiming to get hits like douchebags by throwing something negative out there to disturb the current trend.

Asshats they are.

himdeel3938d ago

Reminds me of all the happy articles when the PS3 first dropped...nothing to read here.

nadchaar3938d ago

This is the most biased POS article I have ever read; Its a disgrace its on WIRED. Sony first party games are weak? Are you kidding me? Mario is the only guy who can make a living platforming? The author clearly didn't bother mentioning the smash success hits of Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter and Sly Cooper..

"At this price, Vita is still more expensive than the most expensive model of 3DS" Vita's price in Japan will roughly translate to $200, the same price as the 3DS XL..

Mounce3937d ago

And the 3DS costs like $80-100 to manufacture. Lol

We'll see if Vita gets a $100 tonight since Japan got one.

Guess the 3DS was a failure to, considering it had a massive price drop in a much shorter time frame.......

Oh wait, the 3DS is selling now. So why wouldn't you think the Vita is going to start selling with a new price?

*read it*
*same old crap*
*clicked "WTF?" and "No"*

LOGICWINS3938d ago

Don't know about anyone else, but I think the key for Vita's success is exposing PS Plus to the masses. I already have around 7(or more) Vita compatible games from Plus and I only payed $50...and I'm getting even more in the next 10 months =D

Bowzabub3938d ago

Exactly. Logic wins in this case.

Why bother submitting such an obvious flamebait article? There's more than enough crap like this already on this site; was there any need to add to it?

Edit: So because N4G promotes it, you should take part? What are you, a child?

@Mike Myers: Sorry if I'm passionate about games. It's a pretty important hobby of mine that got me through some tough times in my life. Still, I'd think anybody who's passionate about something appears to "wear their emotions on their sleeve" when it pertains to that something. Oh, and negative ads and topics may not reflect negatively on how much you enjoy them, but they DO influence people in ways they shouldn't. And that's bad for gaming.

But it seems established through your comment that what's bad for gaming doesn't really matter to you, as it doesn't change how you enjoy them... how does that work?

LOGICWINS3938d ago

N4G promotes the submission of flaimbait articles by having monthly contests for the highest scoring contributor. Heck, N4G just rewarded me with points for having a submission that went over 100 degrees. I'll stop submitting flaimbait articles when N4G stops encouraging me to sumbit them...which will never happen since thats the foundation that N4G is built on.

Ever notice how every piece of news on N4G has a flamo-meter attached to it? If you don't like flaimbait articles, N4G is the wrong place to be part of.

MikeMyers3938d ago

LOGICWINS gets it, ignore the flamebait articles and they will fade away. Personally I don't care either way because negative ads and negative topics don't reflect on how much I enjoy the devices. The again I don't wear my emotions on my sleeve and get upset and act like videogames are all I have in my life.

Outside_ofthe_Box3938d ago (Edited 3938d ago )

You already know what the biggest stealth troll on N4G is about. At least he admits to liking flamebait articles and doesn't try to hide it like he usually does.

***"N4G promotes the submission of flaimbait articles by having monthly contests for the highest scoring contributor. Heck, N4G just rewarded me with points for having a submission that went over 100 degrees."***

Last time I checked it was totally possible to get a submission over 100 degrees without it being "flamebait." Just because an article has the highest score doesn't automatically mean it's a flambait article(use some logic geez). So I'm not seeing how N4G is in anyway promoting flamebait articles specifically.

Hell, I've seen flambait articles fail to get approve for the very fact that people reported them for being flamebait:




So much for N4G promoting and encouraging flamebait articles...

It's all about the users. As long as people like Logic enjoy flamebait articles and promote and defend their existence we'll continue to see them. Hell, I got PMs from people telling me not to report articles as Lame just because I think it's flamebait as that would equate to nearly everything getting reported if everyone did that. Funny thing about that is people hardly report hence why see all these flamebait articles. It isn't N4G, it's users like Logic that are aiding the flames. And whenever someone tries to do something about it they get attacked. What is one to do?

MikeMyers3938d ago

Hicken all I'm saying is these articles shouldn't bother you too much and if they do then it's quite easy to ignore them. I do agree, they get tiresome, we've seen about 2,000 articles on how Vita can do better by... or the Vita is doomed because...

We're starting to see it already for the Wii U. It's sad that negativity sells and draws more attention than it deserves but that's the nature of the beast. The Vita is the best handheld device ever made as far as I'm concerned but it does need better support. But it's far too early to be writing the system off.

dcbronco3938d ago

The mainstream press, with their failing print businesses, have noticed that gamers are an easy target for hits. It increases their advertising dollars. Stop feeding the animals.
