Virtue's Last Reward and Persona 4 aren't exclusive, though


Virtue's Last Reward isn't available on a home console (the general argument was, if it's on PS3 I'd rather play it on that ;))

Persona 4: The Golden has more than enough extra content to count as a stand alone from a PS2 game that nobody played. :P


The general argument is, if it is available on more than one console, it ain't exclusive!


A good combo...

my counter is... to play everything on Vita on other platforms... you need:

3DS, Wii, PS3, PC, 360 or PS4 and also an iOS or Android device. Surely Vita being a single platform is the better buy? :P

So does everyone have each of those in order to be able to disregard Vita versions as worth it?

However the main thing I'm noticing is, there's nobody saying "yeah... those games suck and I'm not interested" which was the main think I expected.

Good collection, I like my Vita too and I've played some great games on it.

I think the big problem with PSVita in the eyes of most is that it lacks the big name exclusives, There's no Grand Theft Auto, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Metal Gear Solid, God of War, Monster Hunter and so on that are brand new, built from the ground up for PSVita and it's functionalities. A lot of it's exclusives are more niché like Gravity Rush and Soul Sacrifice.

That's what I see as being PSVita's biggest weakness so far, If it had those games it would sell better in NA/EU, It's doing well in Japan though which is good.

PSP had exclusives like Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories & Vice City Stories, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker & Portable Ops, Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep, God of War: Ghost of Sparta & Chains of Olympus and much more. These are franchises that sell PlayStation systems.

If PSVita can get exclusives from franchises that are relevant in the minds of a lot of gamers, whilst also serving that niche with stuff like Gravity Rush then the system would do better then it is at the moment.



WOW!  The entire Vita game library in a single picture.  It's unbelievable!  

 

 

 

Actually there's tons of awesome Vita games, PS1, PSP games that you can play on Vita.  

Persona, 2, 3, 4 Golden and Final Fantasy origins (1,2),  Tactics, Dissidia, 3,4,5, 6,7,8, 9, 10, 10-2.  

That's pretty much the closest you could get to having sex on a portable without having sex on a portable.  

Seriously what more could you ask for!?

I see your point, but the thing is that a lot of people would rather just skip a game than buy a system for it if the game isn't enticing enough.



nice collection, unfortunately my psvita library is all digital so i cant brag about it )=

You'd think people actually thought this was the case given what people say about the system (don't worry I got the joke :))

It's even more sad that I picked barely 30% of my Vita collection. It was meant to be the creme de la creme, but obviously isn't good enough for most gamers to consider a system worth buying.

i'm more interested in 2014 vita exclusives than i am in ps4 exclusives. so vita has gamez, at least for me. just for the record: i'm not interested in anything the wii-u (exept maybe x but after the last trailer/gameplay i'm not very optimistic) and xboxone has to offer.

I'm just screwing with you man! :P



The problem is I bought a Vita in november after buying the PS4. But then I went to best buy and game stop to see what games they were selling. They were no games at all. And both retailers told me:"Ah Vita has no games"
But when I go to PSN and list Vita games there are a lot of them plus the PSP games.
unless you own a Vita in the states you will think they have no games cause this is what retailers are saying.
I m currently playing Ys Memories of Celceta. Download both Dissidia since they were on sales for PS plus. Got gravity rush and uncharted for free thanks to PS plus.
So yeah the Vita has games. But in the US retailers makes you think they don't have games



I havea vita and theres no games taht screams ,, i must buy a vita. What i meant wa s,, there are no gmaes that is unique ot teh vita. All the games you mentioned,, like killzone, assassin creed , uncharted are better on a big screen. Why would a person play a blockbuster game on a tiny screen. Vita needs to have game that differentiate itself from consoles ,, cause at the moment , Vita i sknown as handhel that plays watered down versions of console games. Thats one of the main reason why 3DS is doing well and why DS was so much popular compared to psp despite beign a weaker machine. It nice to play console games on a small OLED screen but its not enough.
