PS Vita is everything the PSP should have been

There’s something uniquely different about the PlayStation Vita. Unlike the PSP, the large majority of gamers have nothing but praise for the system. It’s hard not to notice the love for Sony’s new handheld, and I’m going to dive into a few reasons why.

It's also everything the psp couldn't have been considering the advances in gaming technology since the psp first released. This does make some good points though.

@buttoncombo: Jeez man...cut Sony some slack. In no way shape or form is my previous sentence the words of a delusional fanboy. Yet its pretty straightforward. A psp back in what, 2005? Toting the epicness of a Vita?? C'mon now. Lets be real.

Cut Sony some slack? Did you even read the article? Two of the things that were mentioned the PSP could have done the same, if not better.

Oh I'm sorry, were duel analog sticks and strong third-party support not a thing back in 2005?

@vglulz: the psp didnt need dual analogs its just everyone thought the psp should have been about fps games.

Didnt hear anyone moan about the ps1 not having analogs at all.

firefoxprime3077d ago (Edited 3077d ago )

relax vglulz. My primary focus is the graphical enhancement and the merge with social media outlets. Anything else pertaining to the article is not of my concern atm. Obviously 3rd party support is a given. Take a chill pill brah.

-LUKE_SKYWALKER-3077d ago (Edited 3077d ago )

Agreed but I think things like the dual analog sticks, bigger screen and a bigger library of games at launch could have been done at the time.

I'm going to buy a PlayStation Vita and put it with my 3DS until they agree to be friends and make a baby.

Seriously, the Vita is looking really good.

The PS Vita is a graphical powerhouse!

The Uncharted: Golden Abyss Gamescom 2011 trailer is absolutely amazing.

Gotta say the 3DS is definitely going to have more of a challenge from the PS Vita than the DS from PSP. Should be interesting to watch Nintendo and Sony compete against one another. With any luck the consumer could be the winner here, better quality games in general with cheaper systems and games.

r213077d ago

agreed, im thinking one of the reasons the DS outsold the PSP was because of its innovative dual screen and touch screen.

The only innovative thing that differentiates itself from the DS is mainly 3D and its popular Nintendo games. As for the vita its just innovative in so many ways than the psp,like dual analog sticks, a touch screen, a back touch pad, OLED screen, full PSN integration, loads of games and just so much more.

I've never been a huge fan of PlayStation handhelds, so the Vita really needs to impress me to get my vote.

Infernostew3077d ago

So, you weren't a fan of the PSP then? Since it was Sony's only handheld. Come on man, try harder.

The huge game library/developers, nice specs, sexy design still are not enough to impress you good sir? You must be wearing a very thick goggles.
