and 200$ more with a smaller screen and non traditional controls....

edit: using the touchpad in the back instead of triggers.
the analog sticks aren't like a controlers. Plus like i said 200$ extra for offscreen play? no way,i don't need a vita,if i need somthing to play on the go i have my phone,that goes for most people. Good for people that have a vita i guess.

svoulis1838d ago

Exactly what is "non traditional controls" just curious :D

svoulis1838d ago

Ok so what you are saying

You came here just to state your own opinion on "traditional" controls, and how much you prefer angry birds over Killzone, Soul Sacrifice, Uncharted ...Etc.?

Good To Know :D. Thank you for your wisdom.

What difference does it make really when the gamepad is literally most of the Wii U's cost anyway.

So me personally I would rather have a portable that could do the same things but it doesn't matter because I own both but to be really honest I will probably use my Vita alot more with my PS4 than I am currently using the gamepad right now. It is also so funny because if Nintendo did do this, all of you would be going on about how innovative Nintendo is no matter how much it costs but since it isn't..

Nope it is never as good as the gamepad right when the gamepad is pretty expensive itself also, why would it cost more than the Vita when it does less and it is not its own gaming device? It literally is just a second screen.

@ svoulis

i came here to read the article, i responded to boya's comment. and yeah when i have 10 mins from point a to point b then yeah i do prefer simple games. I wouldn't buy handhelds to play at them at home.
@ silvery
its the controller for the console.... why would it have its own games or features.... just stop... really.

And has it's own catalog of unique games.

can vita watch live videos via internet

such as Twitch

OldGirl1838d ago

Soon it can yes because the PS4 is getting it.

Which means in the same manner the Wii U streams it to the gamepad, the PS4 will be able to do the same with the PS Vita with the added benefit of being able to use it anywhere, not just within the range of the Wii U.

Can you watch without being within range of the Wii U?

Misaka_x_Touma1838d ago

all it takes for wii u to be near wifi

LOL_WUT1837d ago

This is pretty neat hopefully Sony advertises the hell out if this feature. Now if only the Wii U's gamepad had half the stuff the Vita does it would've made it a whole lot better. Could be taken on the go, OLED screen, multitouch ;), front and back camera, multimedia functions, folders and the list can go on and on. ;)

thezeldadoth1838d ago

cool that hardly anybody has a vita so developers have no reason to waste resources on making a game compatible with the interface

Hicken1838d ago

Cool that Sony made sure it was a hardware-level function, so that the most developers have to do is provide a control scheme compatible with the interface, which uses pretty much no resources at all.

i love vita its good :) any touch screen phone or tablet can work like wii u gamepad :)

avangerironman1838d ago (Edited 1838d ago )

not the games wii u game apps like the one on the pic :) for example hacking a computer in Deus Ex Human Revolution using touch screen on gamepad :)

Steven211838d ago

Cool! Now lets get ZombiU on PS4. I guess they'd have to call it ZombiV or ZombiVita though

buckley1838d ago

If it convinces Ubisoft to make a sequel, I'm all for this.

LOL_WUT1837d ago

Hey it's not our fault ZombieU didn't sell well on the Wii U I for one would to see a sequel one day ;)

IcicleTrepan1838d ago

I think it's kinda funny that nobody's talking about how the new vita has a removeable battery. Cuz then it's kinda like an Xbox controller.. lol

But seriously, I might have to pick up a Vita before the new ones come out, the OLED screen is so much better that even the improvements just don't seem to outweigh the shitty LCD screen.

iamnsuperman1838d ago

If you are in the UK i saw a story that Tesco was doing them cheap. Otherwise go on ebay if you do not want to/can't spend a lot

davidrobots1838d ago

Cross-buy with a majority of PS3 indie titles is a huge bonus. It's probably (inadvertently) the best indie console on the market right now.

slivery1838d ago

What? People complain because the Xbox controller still uses old arse AA batteries, I think you have it completely confused. No one would care so much if the Xbox Controller came with a rechargeable battery like the new PS Vita whether it was removable or not.

So yea what would the new PS Vita having a removable battery have to do with that? Nothing..

People complain because they have to go out and buy a rechargeable battery pack for the Xbox One controller, when you buy this new PS Vita, you don't need to do that.

The old Vita's battery can be replaced also but it isn't so easy to remove. Really no difference, it's just easier to replace the battery if something happens to it now. Why try to spin that as a bad thing that people should be talking about..?

You people with this OLED vs. LCD crap already.. I have phones with IPS LCD's and I own a PS Vita also and both screens are very nice, of course they aren't exactly the same but the differences are very minimal to the point I really wouldn't care.

I just don't get the point in saying it when the option still exists to buy the OLED version, I could understand if Sony was forcing you to buy the LCD version and they recalled all the OLED's but again they didn't. If you don't like the LCD, you don't have to bash it every chance you get.. Just buy the OLED version and drop it because LCD's are not nearly as bad as you people try to make them seem.

TongkatAli1838d ago (Edited 1838d ago )

True, more people buy are buying LCD.

Hicken1838d ago

I think it's kinda funny you had to reach for something so ridiculous.

On topic: Everybody already knew this, didn't they?

I also find it weird that the Wii U version of Deus Ex will also cost more compared to the PS3 and Xbox versions.

scambl1838d ago

I think it's because the Wii U version is the enhanced version, which uses touch screen controls, while the PS3 and 360 version is a port.

scambl1838d ago

I think it's because the PS3 and 360 versions are ports and the Wii U has exclusive features.
