No, I won't be getting it unless it gets the ability to either hookup to or stream to my TV. That was the only reason I got the PSP. My brother got one though and it is an amazing handheld console, especially for the price.



I am the Playstation Avenger.

I like "God" games, so I will play Black & White, SimCity, Sims, etc. Minecraft and Terraria too.

What the hell is a god game


She gave you the examples right there (although I'd debate Minecraft as a god game).

Populous; Black & White; SimCity; Startopia.; Tropico.  You play as a 'god', in that you're normally just a cursor and you shape things around you for whatever it is you're shaping (followers in populous, cities in simcity etc.)

I love this genre.  It seems to be dying out, though (and it's pretty much dead on consoles, in any case).

Never knew this genre ever even existed



 

Bet with gooch_destroyer, he wins if FFX and FFX-2 will be at $40 each for the vita. I win if it dont

In the OP, you listed PS1 games as part of the Vita library. I think that's one of the problems. When PS+ is a "selling point" (according to many Vita owners), you've got problems. I bought my 3DS to play 3DS games, not so much NES, SNES, GB, and GBC games - though those are nice bonuses.


What do ps1 games have to do with ps+?

Unless you know something i dont, ps+ is offering Uncharted, Gravity Rush and Whipeout plus some psn games, non of these is a ps1 game. And you get all this plus more to come for 50$, if this isn't a selling point i dont know what is.

I don't know.

I read a lot about PS1 classics so I figured it was a part of PS+.  Everyone seems to be using PS1 and PSP games as selling points, and I would rather have Vita games to play primarily. 

This isn't to say Vita doesn't have good games.  Alot of people seem to be enjoying their Vita games.  But there's certainly nothing there with mass appeal to push the system to the masses.  So it'll ultimately remain niche (unless that changes, which I don't see happening).



I think it's an almost perfect system, I'm just waiting for the right time to buy it which will probably be about next month.

I was gonna say, I didn't want to have a go at your original post but I don't see the link between you saying:

"PS1 games as part of the library is a problem" and "PS+ is a problematic selling point".  

They're two separate things.  One is PS1 games; one is a subscription to access Vita games for 'free'.

And in that respect I agree with you, PS1 + PSP games shouldnt be a selling point for many people (ironically the PSP library is a selling point for me because I never owned that system, so the Vita games I want + PSP games with dual analogue is enough).

But PS+ is different.  It's certainly a model that Sony are pushing hard lately and time will tell whether it creates enough incentives for current/future subscribers to invest in a Vita.

I bought 1 PSP, did not play it much, so sold it. Then I again felt like I wanted one when they released Remote Play with the PS3. Still was not playing it.

So overall, I guess I'm not much into handled gaming. And as much as I want a Vita because it looks cool, I will resist buying it.

I was the same as you, I had a PSP and DS. I never played either systems, but I've already played my Vita more then the other 2 sysytems combined. Theres so much content which is either cheap or free (PSP games, PS1, Demo's, Occasional free software like Ecosystem and now PS+) its hard not have something to play on it, maybe not the AAA experience I was hoping for yet, but I'm sure they're on their way. Being able to access all games at all time with the 32GB memory card is probably one of the most important things for me and up until now the 3DS didn't didn't have its big titles availble for download.



You forgot the option: No, because the Vita and its games don't interest me in the slightest. I'd have picked that option.

It seems this console is a very polarizing item. Some people consider it the best hardware they have ever owned, most people don't even consider purchasing it. I don't plan to purchase it because it has to compete with stronger offerings not related to videogames.

I don't think anyone doubts its hardware because it is near flawless in regards to its functions. I honestly had no interest in sony's follow up to the PSP up until it was actually shown off, the Vita in terms of design and infastructure was actually the handheld I was hoping the 3DS would be because I am a big fan of many of Nintendo's IPs.



I don't have one because I don't like its style of gaming.



I LOVE ICELAND!

Ok.

But for me personally, PS1 Classics and PSP games wouldn't sell me.  Only VIta games would.
