Does Anyone Think The Vita Should be Let Go?

127 replies 829 views Edited May 25, 2013

Let's face it, hardly anyone wants to buy a $250 system, with $80 32gb memory cards that has no games. I think it'd be better to focus on making the slow transition from ps3 to ps4, than to have the Vita serving as a distraction.

 

And, by 'slow transition,' I mean slowing down the PS3 releases. This year we have The Last of Us, Beyond, and GT6. They should support those games with DLC and patches (obviously), then call it a generation.

 

I really don't see the Vita taking off.

Yes can it, vita is a lost cause. All the phones, ipads, DS etc. have the mobile game market locked up. Focus on PS4.

I think that the Vita still has a small chance with this year's E3. It is going to be very hard with all the phones/tablets and the handheld king that is Nintendo, but if the PS4 can pull a miracle with the Vita interoperability there is a small chance that it might survive. It looks grim with all the competition, but maybe the PS4 will help it out.

I'm not a handheld gamer, but I would like to see the Vita be able to really stand against the DS. It just has over 2 decades of ground to make up, and is so far behind in terms of fanbase.

Nintendo has been building their handheld fanbase in the US since July of 1989. This makes it so that the Vita has to convince people that have been playing Nintendo handhelds for their entire lives that the Vita is a superior system. It is no easy feat by any means, but I give credit where credit is due, and Nintendo has done an amazing job in the handheld market.

That's too bad. Lots of people HAVE bought a PS Vita and Sony has plans for making the PS Vita and the PS4 go very well together regardless of what you might want to see.

 

E3 is right around the corner and more of their plans will undoubtedly be revealed then. There are many factors that could shift the marketplace, even your own good opinion might change.

Considering I am one of the people who are a day 1 adopter, no I don't think the PSV has to be terminated. It just needs support. Nintendo isn't owning just because, it's ow ing because they have the games. The PSV, after a year and a half, has only a handful (not counting ports and indies)~.

I think I would wait a good 5-6 years before deciding. Consoles, unlike crappy smartphone and tablet games, focus on long term. But no one thinks long term anymore unfortunately.

no, my vita is awesome, and you dont NEED a 32gb memory card. you can buy physical games, and some digital games are small. Seriously, just because you don't have one, don't assume their **bleep** and should be discontinued. Vita's are amazing devices that a failing because of **bleep** like you who won't even give it a chance.

I'm an early adopter. 1st edition bundle. Sure there are many good games for the PS Vita. Most people will quibble over which games are good or bad, some say only a couple of good games, others say there are more.

 

There are more than a hanful of good games. Yes, games I don't even like, but you can't say someone doesn't, so they count as "PS Vita Good Games"

 

The backwards PS1 and PSP digital catalog is  a major plus for the PS Vita too. Plus PS+ being added to the PS Vita is beneficial, whether or not everyone is PS+. 

 

Indie games shouldn't not count either. Some are made just for the PS Vita, not AAA, but good solid fun games. There is a market for such games on the Vita, and it's just one of those benefical layers. Something for everyone, and more to come ... like true Remote Play from the PS4.
