Why the PlayStation Vita is Still Relevant

Owen Hibbert of Entertainment Buddha writes: "I stopped using the Vita purely as a console months ago, yet it still continues to strike me as an amazing bit of hardware. No more do I crave a AAA experience and no more do I care to see it show off its already impressive graphics. My Vita is my PlayStation 4′s best friend, and also helps to relive some of my best childhood moments.

The Vita really is a great piece of hardware, it so deserves more love than it is getting.

Remote Play easily makes it relevant for me and for at least the entire gen, I love getting sessions of PS4 games through the Vita

FragGen1508d ago

Remote play almost never works acceptably for me (lag, stuttering, pauses) and the Vita always gets decoupled from the Ps4 and I have to re-pair the two. Anyone have any tips? Am I an oddball in this regard? How are you guys using remote play?

The Vita will always be relevant. Because i will never forget the day the vita gave my friend carpelTunel syndrome ..

I warned him!

Advised him to get the trigger grips . ):

The Vita as a handheld is awesome. I love it.

I just wish there were more games that appealed to me.

While I don't own a PS4 yet, I still love using my PS Vita. I have a ton of classic PS1 games on it and if I never got one I would never have played Mega Man Maverick Hunter X.

Shame I have to turn off the touch screens everytime I want to use the PS1 games but there not that bad when playing Vita games.

Been using it to play Diablo 3 on the PS4 when I'm not around the console and it works flawlessly.

just like the xbox in japan

the vita over here in the west gets like this little dinky shelf space because people just aren't buying it.

Remote play on the Vita is decent, but the reality is I'd much rather use one of the new Z3 range with the DS4. Some PS4 games play just fine with the Vita's control layout, but others suffer really badly. The prospect of playing on a larger and higher resolution screen with the DS4 is just a much more attractive option to me.

My question is now with the release of remote play on the z3, and the release of PlayStation tv... where does the vita fit in exactly?

psvitamanfan1508d ago

exactly what i was thinking! Without the AAA's from third parties, remote play is the only way to play the 'big boy' games. Now the z3 range are coming, why bother getting a vita when you can get a phone that does the same? Don't get me wrong I'm a big fan of the Vita, have been since day 1, but without a steady supply of Western made games (Japanese niche titles and JRPG's just don't appeal to me) I'm losing interest in the Vita.
