Forums - Sony Discussion - Convince me to get a Vita

(The post got kinda big, so don't worry too much about reading it all and just drop the goods if you feel like)

I own every single PS home console, but never had one of their handhelds, and never really had an urge to.

Owning a Gameboy Advance and playing a lot of a friend's Gameboy Color, my handheld experience was all about Nintendo up until now, and while I want a New 2DS, who knows when it'll be priced here in a range I find acceptable (it'll likely release at the same price as a PS4 when it coms here and keep pricey for years), but recently with less and less time and playing less and less (basically weekends only) I think getting a handheld might help me get back to a more constant gaming schedule.

As said above, I own all Sony home systems, and Vita exclusive library is pretty restricted and modest, but, giving you guys a hand here, my favorite genre is BY FAR rpgs and that's what the Vita usually gets talked about. I also have a good bunch of already bought games on PS3 and PS4 that would work on it without me having to rebuy them. Also, I would like to try some PSP games like Crisis Core and Peace Walker so that's another plus as the Vita store hold some of them.

Yet, the lack of investment from Sony after a single year, the lacking strong exclusive line up (not even a Gow or GT, though there are those on PSP), the very pricey proprietary cards and lack of physical copies of some games just makes me think getting a Vita may be a waste of money (which is quite a lot of money, as getting and backing even one system in Brazil is expensive as fuck) and it doesn't look it'll add much new games to me.

So, I'm kind of puzzled, meanwhile I think a handheld now would be welcome to my schedule, and after getting a bad experience with buying an used 3DS earlier this year (which will have to be the case with Vita, will have to be used as the few stores that sell it new charge much more than I'm willing to pay) and after the New 2DS got announced it's definitely the one I'll eventually get, I just can't convice myself to invest on the Vita.

After the new Persona 3 dancing game got announced for it, tho, I've found myself searching constantly for used Vitas and games in the internet, solely due to the prospect a Golden like P3 with trophies could get announced for it which would definitely make me want it for real (I don't care about the dancing game).

So I thought about giving you guys a shot at convicing me at getting a Vita, and even as yes, LoD on the go is more than reason enough, I can do that on my phone already, so no easy routes here guys!

Which would be the games truly worth on getting/playing on a Vita and nice RPG (and the like) games that I can only get on it?

Maybe you losers, ahem, Vita onwers, can convince me to get one someway, please, give it a try.

Dont get a Vita.

Persona 4 and tactics ogre let us cling together are pretty dope

I feel really bad for Brazilian gamers
here in Peru prices aren't the best, but it is not as bad as in Brasil.
About the vita... don't get one, it is really a dead console

I cant.

Don't do it.
Maybe in a few years we will have a good Vita emulator, then you can play with a decent control layout.

Don`t. Spend the money on something (literally anything!) else instead

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018.

Bought a vita last year to play the three first ratchet and clank games + the three first sly games. Haven't used the thing since then really. I got golden abyss, little big planet vita and tearaway as well, but all of those bored me so I didn't play much. There's quite a lot of indiegames and weird japanese games though, so if that's your jam then it might be worthwile. Otherwise Sony really hasn't brought their A game on this platform at all.
