Re: PS VITA playing against PS3 Players?!

Nov 20, 2012
This. I have both, and go back and forth when I can't just sit in front of my TV forever. It hasn't been a problem at all!

Cross Play and Cross Matchmaking are completely different things. I watched about 6 hours of pre-release interviews, podcasts, videos, etc. and when they talked about cross play it was about playing with friends across systems - not the competative matchmaking system. They never mentioned it once, and since I do not own a PS3 I feel this is quite unfair. They should have vita vs vita, ps3 vs ps3, or at least on option to toggle this on or off for matchmaking :smileysad:


If you keep finding PS3 players then that means there aren't any Vita players around, if they did that then you wouldn't be able to play online.

Seems majority disagrees with me. You guys don't see an advantage to playing on a screen larger than 5 inches as well as playing on a dedicated controller with R2 and L2 buttons? Seriously? Have you even played on both systems to compare?

And as for my playing with majority of ps3 players suggesting that there are no vita players, that's just silly. Say 80% of players are PS3, 20% are vita. I would still find matches with that 20%. Not to mention that if I had an option to toggle which systems I was matched against, I could easily search for cross play if I couldn't find any vita vs vita matches.

Then your only choice is to get used to the Vita and get better with it, everyone else seems to be fine with it.

Trying to stop myself from laughing. This is such a non-issue. Playstation players have no distinct advantage over Vita players. If you feel so, you just aren't good enough. At the very least, you just aren't good enough using the Vita and should invest in a PS3 console or game if necessary.

 

I've played with both and personally feel the Vita is superior. The ONLY time the Vita could be said to be at a disadvantage is in picking up items, but even thats a bit of a stretch.

Not sure if that's true. The only way I found out was by asking the people I was playing against, I wouldn't have known I was playing against consoles otherwise. And the only person I've seen who said they were fine with it was a person who made his account today to post that he plays on both. That's pretty far off from 'everyone else seems to be fine with it'. :/

I'm curious to know why you feel the vita is superior? Also, besides grabbing of items, do you realize how cumbersome it is to taunt on the vita compared to the PS3?

Re: PS VITA playing against PS3 Players?!

Oh, to start with I haven't taunted yet, so I can't really judge that. I am curious though, how do you taunt then?

From experience, I've felt that in having the Vita screen close to me I have greater concentration, and I feel I react faster with regards to dodging and pulling off the timing of supers. That said, there are a few factors which influence my feelings on the Vita over PS3 which may not weigh in for others:

1) I have always preferred handheld gaming so the Vita likely feels more natural for me personally.
2) The gameplay on the Vita felt quicker but this may have been because either the television I played the PS3 version on is not up to scratch and/or I haven't the best eyesight.

So, overall it probably comes down to personal preference and in your case the grip of a PS3 controller would make all the difference whereas for me the handheld setup feels better.
