Im a huge vita guy but i've come to terms with the fact vita isn't getting no more AAA releases. It's my go to indie machine now, and I love my indies. Hotline Miami 2 on vita (to me) is better than on PC (well can only compare it to hotline miami 1 here) but still, i'm okay with sony focusing their efforts on the device people actually want.


I share the same sentiments. Guacamelee and Binding of Isaac on the go is as addicting as mobile games but have the same quality as some of the best games on 3DS I feel.

I agree it makes no sense. Most Vita games don't get a physical release. But that would just show how even bigger gap there is between Vita and 3DS release schedules at the moment.

The reason the 3DS has a ton of exclusives is because it can't even run Wii games (as demonstrated by the fact that Xenoblade is N3DS exclusive and still cut back from the 2011 release). So if they didn't make games specifically for 1990s architechture, there wouldn't be any games full stop.

The thing is, handheld consoles were never supposed to be for playing home console games. If people wanted to do that, they would just buy a home console. Nintendo knows this, which is why the 3DS has so many games that can easily be played on the go. Sure, they don't have the graphics of Wii games and there aren't many ports, but that means little when people aren't looking for ports, but rather new games built ground up for a handheld experience.

Xbox One - PS4 - Wii U - PC

How many Vita fans don't own or will not buy a PS4 anyway? I imagine the overlap must be pretty high there, so Vita owners will get to play it, just not on their Vitas

Yeah, people might have a ps4 and a vita. But they still need something to prove their purchase was worty which is what exclusives are for. 



Ltd predictions by the time 9th Gen comes out

Ps4:110million

Xbox one :75 million( was 65) 

Wii u: 20 milliion

The PS4 has remote play, so in all reality, GR coming to the PS4, means that it is also on the Vita as well......

Being able to play a game on 2 platforms and only paying for it once is perfectly fine in my book......... I say bring it on.

I repeatedly see this argument. However there is no evidence whatsoever to back it up.

People buy portable consoles to play games on the move. Buying patterns on both Sony and Nintendo's consoles show that these games can be perfectly suited to home consoles (Smash Bros 3D/Minecraft/Luigi's Mansion 2/Pokemon/Resident Evil Revelations) however they are still bought on portables. The first example even being much better on the home console.

The fact that Nintendo deliberately avoid putting pokemon onto their home consoles is nothing to do with it working better as a portable game and everything to do with trying to keep some of their big titles spread so that you need both their home and portable console in order to enjoy their full content lineup.

There's a myth that 3DS is packed full of games designed to be portable while Vita is not. But if you actually studied the Vita catalogue, you'd find it ticks the "small bursts" category as well, if not better than the 3DS. This is why posters above say they prefer indie games on Vita to home consoles/PC. They feel like a better fit. Games like Tearaway are perfect handheld titles by the definitions provided so frequently and the game is excellent, still completely ignored though.

why are you comparing it with the ps3 and ps4? You have to compare it to the competition, the 3DS. Despite the vita selling lower units its 5 to 1, the vita still gets more multiplats in recent months not avaible for the 3DS. You pretty much have to own both hanhelds now as the vita is now getting all the jrpgs and third party games like resident revelation 2.

Saying its only because youre hardcore jrpg fan is like saying: you only like the 3DS because because youre a hardcore nintendo fan. The games are there for the vita. 

Sony made a great job getting games as much as possible without wasting any money, its remarkle for a system being only sold 10 milllion units so far.

 

here a comparison of 3DS vs PSvita game releases last 3 months

This argument makes no sense. Zero. Zip. Of course I'm going to compare it to the PS3/PS4, sincem most people who have one also have one of those consoles. When you can get the vast majority of the titles on a different system, with better graphics, why would you buy the handheld? The 3DS has a ton of exclusives and is completely seperate from the Wii U, while the Vita is like a PS3 mini, just with almost no first party exclusives. There's a major difference between the two.


Its a handheld, so you can take it with you and play games like resident evil revelations 2 where ever you want. If you think that graphics matter and that the ps4 is stronger than the vita than youre right but it says that handhelds arent for you in the first place, and youre playing them home which makes no sense whats so ever.



Lol I think by now it is very clear Sony are devoting very little, if any, of their time, money and effort into the Vita... At least give us some more classic PSone ports like Tenchu, Gran Turismo, Wild 9 etc.
