GameZone poses the question that is on a lot of gamer's minds, and gives you their separate opinions in the GameZone Roundtable
If you like more than few games on it than yes, if you only care for 1 game on it than no. No point on buying any system for one game.
I think if you have the money and you're wanting to get into mobile gaming, then the Vita is the must-have choice
In my opinion, I woudn't buy a Vita beacause of these rules/restrictions for me to invest now. some games need memory cards to boot up need a memory card to switch users need to reset settings when it comes to diffrent users PSN account needs to be activated on a memory card? memory cards are expensive 3g is a mixed bag no option to use dpad/button to navigate through the OS
People are always saying that the memory cards are tooo much $$$$$ But a quick look at amazon shows the even the scandisk versions of the pro duo are NOT much less than this new memory format, and the Sony versions are just about the same price. People just love to bitch and moan.
you bitch and moan about others bitching and moaning about somthing they think is overprice/expensive.
@nevin My comment was hardly a bitch and moan fest. Simply pointing out the facts.
JoeReno Hit it right on the nose. Obviously these people are fairly out of touch with what the normal ESRB retailing prices are on these things. They are ALL expensive but the Vita Memory Cards are priced right alongside the produos. They are not more expensive. I remember I paid 70 for my 8gb for PSP and that was when it was on SALE just a year ago.
Is your article worth reading? No. I can decide myself whether the device is worth it or no the same way I decided your article is not worth reading. It's just another article about the same tired topic. Next time try to write something original.
yes the vita is worth a purchase.. if not..then you most likely don't like it.. and that makes it simple for the minority here that doesnt like it.. and that is to not get it. if you like handheld gaming u will love the ps vita, if u don't like handheld gaming i guess u can still buy one and use it as a controller for the twisted ppl with to much money that belives thats a good purchase. and if u don't like gaming at all then what are *you* the person that doesnt like gaming, doing here on n4g? :P
I'll likely pick up the Vita once I have some spare cash. Granted that's what I said about the PSP and I still don't have one. Still, I really want the Vita.
I´ve been psyched for the PSVITA, for more than a year now. For me it is not even a question. It is more than worth getting.
The answer to this questions obviously boils down to individual opinions. Might be worth it to me but not for some.
If you like it, yes. If you dont like it, no. Problem solved.
Slow down there you are making to much cen.. sen.. I almost forgot the word, I think its sense.
The hardware is great and there's a ton of launch titles that I am interested in. Then yes it's worth a day one purchase for me. XperiaRay
It's worth it to me simply because I like the games I know will be released on it. If you can afford another handheld, then yes go for it, if not, simply save up or wait for a price drop. I am personally excited for a handheld with proper dual analog sticks that will give birth to games that will be exponentially enjoyed for this fact alone. Imagine how clunky Gravity rush or any first or third person shooter would be played without the second stick. Peace.
Better yet...Is this blogger worth the time?
nah he isn't
It's one editor's opinion out of the site, so his isn't, but the others say it's worth it.
Yes it is but no one will ever see that. They make every minor flaw into a big deal and make stupid excuses instead of listening to logic.
For most people interested in handheld gaming, I think the answer would and SHOULD be yes. It's great technology at an affordable price, with good games out and promising titles to come. This roundtable has only two people who say no, but one specifies that it's not a buy for him, as he's not much into handhelds(he does mention, however, that the combination of touchscreen and dual analog sticks is "nearly ideal for a gamer"). The other guy complains because he hasn't found a "killer app" for it yet(me? mine is Gravity Rush), and because there are "lots and lots of ports of games I already own." He then completely disregards all the things he acknowledges as exciting by saying it's "not really" worth buying. It's no surprise, then, that he got the treatment he did here. Overall, though, the question is subjective, and one best left to each individual to answer.
i just gotta say the vita is probable the only console that makes wanna buy it as soon as a possible cause of the games, the tech, the sticks. so for me, hell yes.
