Do you have a have a Vita? If not why?

Yes, I have one and I'm enjoying it
Yes, but I'm still waiting for it to fullfill its potential
No, but I'm buying one this fall
No, I'm already got a 3DS, I only need one Handheld system
No, waiting for more quality titles (give examples below of the type of gam
No, the price is too high (the system? memory cards? both?)
No, I'm not interested in Handheld gaming
No, its going to be discontinued in a few months, why waste my money

I just want o get a gage of the percentage of core gamers who haven't got the system and why?

I was watching Epic Battle Axe and I realised non of them own a system, yet they spend their whole lives talking about video games...

I'm  trying to figure out if its simply an issue of not enough AAA games, Maybe you've already bought a 3DS and you're content with that, Pricing ( a combination of the 2/3?) or whether you have no interest in Handheld gaming. I want as many responses as possible! 

Thanks! :)

Update: I bought one in june, didn't play it for while but I'm really enjoying it now

Games I've got: 

Gravity Rush, MGSHD Collection, Soundshapes,  FFVII, Vagrant story and Little Big planet. I bought AC: Liberation aswell but mainly to just support the system, I don't really enjoy AC games that much.

I have a vita. I listen to music with it, browse the internet, and watch movies, and netflix.. And youtube too. I've got a couple games, but... meh.. Blazblue and stardust only cut it for so long... PSOne classics get old too. I'd rather use it for other things.   I love fighters, but, currently, the most interesting game I've seen is Killzone: Liberations, and I hate FPS.  That's going to be my next game on vita.



Yes I have a Vita bought it day 1 (First console/handheld I've ever done that for) I regularly use it for browsing checking twitter (Which is a really good app) and sometimes Facebook (Which has a really crap app) I sometimes go on youtube but its annoying that it doesn't re-direct to the app when clicking links. Really pleased we are getting PS+ and a g-mail app.

I love the fact we have trophies, I like the bubble interface. The only bad thing is the memory cards they should have skipped the 4GB option because I may want some awesome open world type game such as an Infamous game but they'd have to skimp down on it with not enough memory on all vitas for a "full experience" I have no need for a smartphone any time soon.

What about the games you may ask?

Well I have Unit 13, MGSHD colletion, Modnation, Motorstorm RC, Sound Shapes, Mutant Blobs attacks, Sunflower, Super stardust delta, Frobisher Says digitally and Uncharted Golden Abyss Physical.

I have God of War Ghost of sparta (PSP) and MGS1, FF7, Crash 3.

I will be selling Uncharted Golden abyss and downloading it and Gravity rush when Plus comes next week!

I think the largest thing putting people off it the Memory cards, they should have had internal memory ala PSPgo and had memory cards at least half-price. They get a better cut from digital than physical so why wouldn't they encourage me at every step to go all Digital? Silly Sony bear.

PSP Lifetime more than PSV+3DS Lifetime.

I rarely play handhelds, I already have a 3DS and it gives what I need from a handheld. There's just nothing about the Vita or it's games that grab me.

Poll lacks the option "No, because I don't buy Sony systems".

It's also weird to see someone who believes that Killzone: Liberation is a FPS. I suggest that you should not believe anything this person has said.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Biased reviews are a pleasure to read. Just my opinion, of course.

He obviously means Killzone Mercenery, although when searching Killzone for Vita it comes up with "Killzone Liberation for Vita". 



PSP Lifetime more than PSV+3DS Lifetime.

I have a vita. I bought it about two months ago and its one of the best investments i've made.
Its been pretty much replacing my ipad and i dont see a need for a smartphone anymore.

I have little big planet vita, smart ass..., uncharted, ac liberation, nfs most wanted and a shitload of psn,psp and ps1 games on it and there is still more i plan on getting (whipeout,ragnarock odyssey, persona 4 golden, psas, soul sacrifice, tearaway... I cold go on but i think you get the idea).
I've never bought this many games for a system in such a short time.

I also suggest that you should not believe anything that the person who is covering up for the person who thinks that Killzone: Liberation is a FPS says.

I have one and got it not long after launch (order got screwed up) and loving is so far!!

The games I have are: Assassin's Creed III: Liberation, Little Deviants, Gravity Rush, Unit 13, Ridge Racer, Rayman Origins, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Sound Shapes and Smart As...

I really hope that future games include an inFamous spin-off, Final Fantasy, Loco Roco (awesome on PSP and would work brilliantly on the Vita with the motion control and touchscreen) and also, of course, Gravity Rush 2

Well there's a couple of reasons why I choose not to buy a Vita... but the simplest of reasons is that there just that the kinds of games that I like to play aren't on it. I know some people laugh at Nintendo for "kiddy" games, but to me, light hearted, fun, and colorful games are a plus. Games that are not so serious and don't have such a 'realistic' vibe to them, require a little more of a imagination or suspension of believe, is a good thing. I don't necessarily prefer all the guns, glory, and boobs, but then again I'm a female. That doesn't mean I don't play those games. It's just that so many of those games are already out there and I would not be one of the first to line up and buy them. There are always exceptions though.

The other reason, albiet this can be easily overridden by a very good software lineup for me, is simply the fact I was so burnt by my purchase of the PSP. I just expected more of the money I spent on it. I did enjoy some games on it, but I just expected sooo much more. I could spend a few pages explaining why I feel this way but rather than do that, I'll just try to sum it up.

In general, the PSP seemed to be me to be a very good emulator, but not very good for PSP games in the way of that I would pick up a game, play with it and be completely wrapped up in the PSP... even I thought PS1 looked better than most games that were made for it and I found myself playing mostly PS1 classics on it and ports. To me, the design of PSP games just seem to be all that great and since I played a lot of ports and PS1 classics on it, it was instantly obvious. I don't know that it was necessarily the hardware's fault though, I think it's because a lot of games weren't built up to their potential by developers. I didn't pay all that much attention to the drama around the PSP when it was first out as I was a late adopter. So maybe there was issues with getting games that really pushed it's potential, but I have no idea. For the most part, I just felt like a lot of the games were dumbed down, the graphics weren't optimized... so on.

I felt that way at first about the DS too because I had purchased that after the PSP, but after a while I got over it because the games felt like they just had so much more depth, so much more gameplay and entertainment value to offer. I don't know how describe the comparison there. It was just much more fun to play my DS than the PSP... To me, the PSP was being sold as a glorified emulator... it was trying to be a console that 'took it on the go' but maybe that withheld it's potential to stand on it's own and shine. I get that is what Sony is trying to do, but for me, it just didn't do anything for me like the DS. In fact, I own two PSPs... I bought a PSP fat for my husband when he was sitting at sites overnight.

For games, I especially love the Harvest moon, Rune factory series. I'm from the 90s RPG golden age, so of course anything that plays like anything from that period will get a nod from me. I like racing games, sims. I will play some action games, like Tomb Raider. I used to play Resident evil, but in all honesty I haven't played any of the newer ones. I like platformers too. Though for the most part, I'll play any genre. I like "God" games, so I will play Black & White, SimCity, Sims, etc. Minecraft and Terraria too.

I have trouble thinking of all the games I play and what types. I just play whatever looks like it is fun to play. If I don't like it, I don't play it. Oh, Hotshots Golf is fun too.
