Poll PS Vita

    no not interested in anyway shape or form for any playstation handheld
  • winner2 - January 14, 2012 9:02 a.m.

    Only if i had a bunch of money to blow off and the newest monster hunter game was available for it in english.

    I'm gonna wait on this one, especially if uncharted is the only legitamate game (that isn't 100% shooting like killzone/resistance.) Eventually it will get it's game, but I have a feeling Sony is going to make the same mistake with the psp. They are going to barely release games even though most of them are high quality (God of war, Birth By Sleep, Peacewalker, Corpse Party, P3P, Dissidia.) I bought a 3DS just because of it's unbelievable lineup for this year. So I might wait till next year and see if sony's really supporting the vita or it will eventually be a backdoor to the inevitable ps4

    I was woprking some numbers, the mexican price of the vita here is 6000, which translated to dollars (assmuing a 1-15 exchange ratio) its 400 dollars..... that is .... more than 1 third of its price increased; I can get a new full console (or update my PC) with that amount of money, its obscene. So.... no, I think ill wait a year or maybe 2 until it drops about a third of its price... and even tehn I think its wayaay too much for a handheld ...then again if I import, maybe ill wait for the first price drop instead
  • AuthorityFigure - January 13, 2012 5:50 p.m.

    It's definitely an interesting device. I loved the PSP (better than the DS Lite, actually) so I will probably get this eventually.
  • Jackelsburg - January 13, 2012 4:31 p.m.

    I'm definitely interested, but i might wait a while before getting one. Which might be tough since it comes out a few days after my birthday...
  • Oujisama - January 13, 2012 4:19 p.m.

    No question, this thing is amazing and I'm definitely getting it. But I'm gonna wait for an inevitable re-design and price drop. It always happens, and its always way better than the original design. Screw buying it early.
  • MonocledYaoGuai - January 13, 2012 3:04 p.m.

    I'm definitely waiting a while for a Vita. The launch lineup is full of ports of games that I already own, those prices need to go down before I even think of buying one,the launch window after doesn't look that impressive and I learned my lesson about buying a handheld early from the 3DS. As it stands now, I'm more than fine with my PSP and 3DS.
  • odog402 - January 13, 2012 2:30 p.m.

    Probably not. I was one of the 10 people who actually bought a PSP GO (flame away..I had money to blow that month and I wanted a shiny new toy) Given my buyers remorse from that and combining that with a high price tag and lack of titles at launch, I will probably wait to buy or not even buy at all.
  • crispychicken - January 13, 2012 3:57 p.m.

    Seriously?! The Vita will have "the biggest and best lineup ever launched across the history of PlayStation platforms." I'm pretty sure there isn't alack of launch titles.
  • Y2Ken - January 13, 2012 2:26 p.m.

    I'm probably going to wait a month or two, really seriously considering getting it but I'd like to actually try it out myself and see what people are saying about the released games as well as those to come.
  • Lionzest7 - January 13, 2012 1:58 p.m.

    why do people still care about these systems, I thought the only game worth playing on standalone handheld that isn't a RM is Pokemon. Even for that you don't need a 3DS so my DS is good enough.
  • gamingfreak - January 13, 2012 4:29 p.m.

    Because we're gamers.
  • xarab4lyfex - January 14, 2012 6:47 a.m.

    I normally don't judge opinions, but after playing games like Phoenix Wright, Super Mario 3D Land, The World Ends With You (<-especially), Dissidia, Professor Layton, Birth by Sleep, and the Mario and Luigi games, I've gotta say this is the dumbest thing I've ever heard in my life. And I live in Jersey full of the jersey shore tools.
  • spideralex90 - January 13, 2012 1:48 p.m.

    I want one, but I'm going to wait a bit before buying one I think.
  • therawski - January 13, 2012 1:17 p.m.

    The 3DS has been mediocre and in my opinion quite a disappointment, but it's more about having a history, with frequent redesigns. The Vita looks like a better machine, but as a consumer I'm not going to rush like I did on 3DS. I'll wait until something I want to play comes out. It has 2 thumbsticks, that's more than anyone else has, including the tablets and phones. It's made by Sony, a technology company with huge assets. Nintendo is a toy company. Nintendo has made more redesigns with it's handheld than Sony, although the former had games - Just like the Wii, it will (has) become saturated. Sony seems to plan better for extended product cycles (like offering extended warranties), a more relevant game can be made on the Vita in 5 years than on 3ds (without accessories). People don't realize that dedicating 1 battery to everything means you're compromised, imagine the 3DS is your phone and you need to dial 911. I like the idea of having a strategy guide open on my phone and a separate screen for the game. The initial investment (including hidden costs) is extremely high, especially considering the proprietary stuff (like what Apple pulls) - but I am curious enough to pick one up in the future.
  • Cyberninja - January 13, 2012 1:51 p.m.

    what exactly do you mean by a more relevant game could be made in 5 years on vita then 3ds? i plan on getting a vita in addition to the 3ds i currently have, and i can say easily dual screen on 3ds takes away need to have accessories to make relevant games, Vita in 5 years time will probably be out of ideas for new things since the design has been done since game gear and has all the same features as 3ds with the only advantage being in graphic capability which doesnt matter in the game making process. like the most original ds game was TWEWY which hasnt been replicated yet and couldnt be done on vita, but could be improved on 3ds
  • MasterBhater - January 13, 2012 2:14 p.m.

    I do believe the Vita has more memory in it's cards which means more content. The graphics and overall power allows for bigger, more expansive games The two analog sticks are essential for character control in a 3D world. The Vita is already selling it's launch games on the PS Store AS WELL as physical copies. If Sony keeps that up it'll be a leap forward in mobile and download-only gaming. So yes, the vita is already more relevant. That and it has a touch screen that isn't outdated
  • Cyberninja - January 13, 2012 2:36 p.m.

    well i think the card size is the same for both a max of 16 gigs even if no one use those cards yet, 2 sticks really aren't necessary for 3d worlds since i played BBS no problem on psp and Loz on 3ds with out a second stick. i think they are only needed for fps but even then there's metroid prime which did fps with no analog sticks. finally even if the touch screen is outdated(which was for backwards compatibility)its a separate screen so it can be used for unique experiences like my TWEWY example, so your not blocking your only screen and yes i know it has a touch pad but it seems to me like it would mess you up badly if your fingers slip a little which is a problem with something that precise and its not a screen so it technically has to left out touch "screen" discussion. finally Nintendo also had eshop which has games already.
  • MasterBhater - January 13, 2012 1:09 p.m.

    I've already pre-ordered the Vita. Getting the First Edition Bundle on February 15th. Comes with a carrying case, a 4GB memory card, and a game along with the Wi-Fi version of the Vita for only $50 more than the regular price! With the taxes here in Canada THAT'S ONLY 345 DOLLARS! I hate how people complain about the damn price, when IPads are 400 DOLLARS MORE and STILL less powerful. Cheap fanboys.
