I went to check some game line-ups recently and was upset at what I saw. Every major franchise was on a home console.
And before everyone jumps on me I love home consoles (Playstation 2 is my all time favorite system) But come on people , Stop treating portable consoles like a afterhought. Like that thing you get when you can't get a Home console.
Portable consoles have been reduced to nothing but spin-off machines, and when we do get main entry games. It's like devs put Zero effort into the portable console version (Look at Motogp 13 on the ps vita, it looks like a ps1 game. No excuse for that, no excuse).
The main reason the 3ds is selling is because Nintendo DOSEN'T treat it like a secondary device, even with all the big first-party titles planned for the Wii U. 3ds is still getting good main-entry games.
Home console players will freak out the minute a Portable console get's a big exclusive game (Monster hunter 4) and demand the game be put on home consoles. Yet they say nothing when portable players get nothing but spin-offs.
Do I think the ps4 should get a gravity rush game, yep. In the form of a spin-off that takes place between gravity rush 1 and 2.
But we all know home consoles players would never go for that. And when a portable spin-off ends up being better then the main -entry game (Resident Evil Revelations was better then Resident Evil 6) They throw a fit and demand a port.
This is just my opinion and you don't have to agree, but I wanna know what everyone else thinks.
Only thing keep 3DS alive is Mario and Pokaman
Lol, I bet you've never owned a Nintendo handheld console in your life.
Are you talking about handheld consoles in general or just PS Vita?
In general, but the ps vita suffers from this the most.
The way I see it, portable consoles are more casual option to home consoles. You aren't going to see big games like The Last of Us or GTA V on a handheld. Instead you get different kind of games targeted for a different audience. Doesn't mean handhelds didn't get good games. They do, and that's why I'm planning on buying a 3(2)DS.
