Why are people so hung up about the "it's a PS3 in your hands" statements? Everyone I know keeps going on about how it is inferior to console gaming, about how they don't want to play shitty ports of console games, or how it's inferior. Has anyone actually had the time to PLAY the games on the Vita's library? I have, and you know what? you're all being rather dense.

Pretty much every game on the Vita has been specifically tailored to portable play. as I go through my current list of games, almost all of them are perfect for bite sized gaming. Racers and fighters have been ported to the system, and they are practically ideal since fights last less than a minute and races last less than 5. Assassin's Creed Liberation has shorter missions with a smaller world for ease of travel and succinctness of missions. Gravity Rush has a smallish world, LittlebigPlanet and Rayman are platformers where each level takes only a couple minutes, etc. Even Ragnarok Odyssey, a lengthy boss fighting, hunting style RPG has hundreds of SHORT missions that can be enjoyed in 5 minutes or so.

This strict adherence to "I don't want to play inferior versions of console games" is flat out ignorant and not very well thought out.

Yes, the system CAN do console games, it CAN do online, it CAN do pretty much everything the PS3 can do, but that doesn't mean everyone has to judge it as an equal, due to the fact that it's still a handheld and devs have been treating it as such; too bad the public at large seems too dense to realize this subtle difference.

The Vita may be awesome, but it's still a portable system with portable limitations. The only system people should be comparing it to right now is the 3DS, and yet it's getting treated like a shitty, downgraded PS3. That's just plain not fair. that's like going on a vacation to Florida and complaining that there are no Lions roaming wild. Stop putting unfair expectations on a system just so you get some weird pleasure out of acting like it's inferior.

This is why I prefer not to leave the Vita thread, people everywhere else are overly critical, negative, and in many cases flat out ignorant. (and look up the meaning of Ignorant, it's not flaming, it's a statement about how little people seem to know. Lacking knowledge is not an insult, it's just the way it is, like that guy who incorrectly stated that Assassin's Creed and Call of Duty were ports.) You're allowed to not know things, but don't go flapping your gums about how terrible a system is without spending time with it ot learning for yourself.

IT's feeling like the xbot Brigade from the early PS3 years, throwing out false stats and facts about the PS3 for years before finally being pounded into the ground. they said the PS3 had no games either, and look where that ended up.

grah! Ignorance is so infuriating!

Sony is advertising the Vita right now with the slogan "console gaming on the go" and whenever Jack Tretton appeared on mainstream TV shows, he made it a point to say that the Vita is "the console experience in the palms of your hands". Blame Sony's marketing department for the expectations the average consumer has, because the message that Sony conveys with their commercials is that people should compare the Vita to the PS3.

Well considering the 1:1 experiences cross buy games offer that's understandable.

McDonalds is also advertised as a restaurant, but people know better than to assume it's fine dining.  PEople have GOT to learn to stop letting advertising get in the way of common sense. 

and the Vita is CAPABLE of console quality, but so was the PSP, and so was the 3DS, and so was the DS and the GBA and the....you get the point.  it's certainly dumb of sony to advertise it like that if people aren't making games that are as expansive and grand as the console counterparts, but the console is certainly capable.  that said, most consumers are ill advised.  

Good so we finally agree on something.

The Vita is not bad tech. Its a very good handheld and for alot of people it has the type of games they like. But im not one of them as im happy with what i have atm and will buy a PSvita once it gets some games that "I" want on it.



The price is to high for me. I'm very interested in Gravity Rush, but buying the PSP just last year, at a super low price and a 3000 model, has shown me that the best idea is just wait for a price drop.



I have one :)



Click my signature, you know you want to.  (Shia Labeouf voice): DO IT!

No, Because I hate Sony in every way shape and form and I would never support them in any way.

Just kidding! I just could care less about owning one.



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

I managed to snag a Vita for 120 shortly before E3. After owning it for 2 months or so I sold it for 150 with Gravity Rush. Just about broke even.

Basically, their just aren't a whole lot of games I'm interested out or announced for the near future. It's pretty simple.

How exactly do you rate 3DS battery life then? Non-existant? It is quite a bit better battery-wise.

If you play games that are equivalent of 3DS games (graphically) it lasts much more.

How exactly do you rate the 15h DS battery life then?  (has as much to do with the Vita as your comment)

Good that you go and defend the Vita so blindly.    The Vita somewhat tries to be a PS3  and therefore it is a PS3 with shitty battery life.   The 3ds doesnt try to be something else like the Vita does. So saying the 3DS is a Wii or whatever with shitty battery life makes no sense here right? Especially when the threads topic is the vita.
Thanks.

Call the Vita whatever the hell you want, it's still a handheld like the 3DS, and it's battery life is roughly the same. It's a valid comparison and he had every right to bring it up.

Now we are already at people defending other people defending their precious  device ;)  (you clearly are upset since you cursed lol)

I know he had every right to say what he wants since he is a free perosn.   But  what was the point of that?   I mean the thread is about the Vita and opinions   I share my opinion about  not seing alot of portable games  but instead I see console style games like Uncharted.  A game which is a worse game than the PS3 Uncharted's. Then I see black ops and resistance both being shitty games and worse than their console counterparts.  Thats why I see the vita having some kind of identity problem. It is a portable gaming system but it somehow doesnt know it is. (sony even said it wanted the Vita to bring console gaming experiences to handheld systems)

Again what has the 3ds battery life to do with the vita? I mean the Vita battery life is shit  but having a 3ds with shitty battery life doesnt magically make the Vita have unshitty battery life. Why do you even compare the two here? Again what is the point of this other than fighting the 3ds and defending the vita?

I just mentioned the 3ds DS and PSP  so people  see that I play portable gaming devices nothing else. And I mentioned the PS3 since the Vita somewhat tries to be a PS3.

So I stated why I dont have a vita and the only thing I get are off-topic replies.....  that argue my opinion LOL. (wont work)

The way I see it I didnt do anything wrong (other than daring to criticize a holy sony product)  I said why I dont own a Vita (might change in the future) I even praised Gravity Rush as a game that makes me want a Vita. Mentioned why I dont have one yet (it has a personality disorder ^^)

P.S I could also have said the Vita is a PS3 with shittier graphics    would you then go and defend it and say the 3ds has even shittier graphics? Thats not the point of my sentence since the 3ds doesnt try to be a Ps3 or Wii  it has its own identity well   not really since its some kind of DS  but thats okay since both have the same purpose/heritage. 
So yeah in this case comparing the Vitas graphics to the 3ds would make as much sense as comparing the Vita to a pencil because the graphics or the battery life or being a pencil or not  clearly has no impact on my decision to buy the Vita or not.  The Vita identity problem is the reason why I dont buy a Vita and thats what I said. 

Can we move on now?

You simply said that Vita has a shitty battery life. I said that its battery life is class-leading and to prove my point, I said that its battery life is better than 3DS. The point is not a comparison, it is that your point is simply wrong. Get it?  I don't attack you, I just show you you are wrong. Do you also think that Mercedes cars have shitty safety or Ferrari cars are slow as hell too?



I've considered purchasing it, but in the end decided against it. With barely enough time to play 360 or PC, it would just collect dust on my shelves or in my bag. As I usually read on the tube, and none of the games besides gravity rush and uncharted really appealed to me. I just don't see it as a worthwhile investment at the present, and battery life is pretty abysmal by my standards, but then again, I think the same of my phone and iPad too, and both have sub 20 hours battery life of consistent use (iPad 3 and lumia 900)



Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet a time.

No. You can't criticise one platform and defend the other when they both suffer from the same problem (not that it's even a problem, batteries just simply haven't advanced as fast as other technology).

You replied to my single sentence with an off-topic rant, several paragraphs long, and you generalised and provoked SONY fans. You might want to re-evaluate who is being defensive here.

See bolded if you can't understand what's wrong with your post.
