Forums - Sony Discussion - Playstation Vita has been dead for years. It hurts me too, but it's a fact. Let's move on.

People should be able to talk about whatever consoles they want regardless of it's status. I mean... There's retro gamers, pc only gamers, handheld only gamers, etc. To each their own.

Do Vita owners even buy many games? I just happened to take a look at the top sellers and Minecraft was number one selling two million.

It supposedly has a much much higher attachrate than the 3ds.

Theres a thread about it on neogaf.

Its just that the 3DS has sold like 4 times as many units, so it probably sells more software overall.

 

Also feel like the Vita has more games comeing than the 3DS does... so its odd the OP says its dead.

Sadly the mainstream consumer (esp in the US) for some reason dont like the Vita.



I put it in my "old consoles" section in my signature for a reason its also a legacy console for me. Personally I liked the console a lot but after Freedom Wars it has become a bit of a rare occasion I play it.

Its sad, at least there is the Switch which at some point when its appealing to me will be my handheld, so theres that.

I still have a lot of fun with my PS Vita in 2017. Just look how many games have been released for the system since 2017. And it's still selling a few thousand units per week. As long as Sony continues producing Playstation Vita
system's and third-party developers develope games for it it's far from dead imo.



It still gets games. I still considering buying a Vita for playing the games I got over the time with PS+.

On the other hand: also the WiiU still gets games. Heck, even the Wii still gets Just Dance and probably will for a time. And I can play my games still on PS2.

So, in the end it definitely depends on when you consider a console dead. This also explains the different opinions here in this thread.

Not dead in Japan. But sure, dead every where else (from a hardware sales perpective).



...Let the Sony Domination continue with the PS4...

My Wii U still gets games? That has to be stopped immediately! Any new WiiU game (that gets enough reviews) will destroy that sweet 2017-MetaScore-average of 97% ;)



You've just now realized this? It's been dead for years. Not even worth mentioning anymore.

Alive and well? I dunno about that. Its not exactly getting major support and its recent releases aren't selling great.

Although I'm impressed by the support it does have from Japan. I mean some weeks Xbox 360 tracks more physical sales than Vita but gets no support.

We'll... for a dead system, it's still giving me as many games as the 3DS, if not more. Last year was especially good with RPG.

Actually i just went to the shop and we have recent launches of Berserk, atelier firis and toukiden 2. I'm sorry, but the definition of a dead system is one for wich games aren't made for anymore.
I don't know where the Vita touched you, but it is still very much alive. Theres more stuff coming this year like ys8, danganrompa 3 and tokyo xanadu. That is mighty impressive for a "dead" system.

 

Oh i get it... this is switch beeing a portable bs. You are feeling threatned? Haha...
