How many of you Vita owners do NOT have a PS3?

[ Edited ]
25 replies 305 views Edited Jan 22, 2013

This is something i have seen thrown around a ton lately and I'd be curious to get a feel how many Vita owners actually don't own a PS3...I can't even imagine buying a Vita and not a PS3 with all the cross functionality of the two.  Still I'd love to hear from you and your reasoning for not having both (Outside of the obvious of being price prohibitive for some).

I don't. I had one, and it was a waste of my money. I prefer portable consoles. I do have a 360, but I never play it; it's back home. I really found nothing great about the PS3 since Socom 2 HD was never made.

So you never use a Desktop PC? Or consoles at all?  If you just purely prefer portable consoles i guess that would be a reasonable reason indeed.

I never owned a PS3 and never plan to own a PS3 (nor a PS4). I bought the PSV on account of its own merits just like I did with the PSP. I couldn't care less about cross functionality, the system should be sold as something capable of standing on its own two feet rather than as a glorified peripheral~.

Reasons? The PS3 (as well as all the other home consoles for that matter) just doesn't interest me, I'm a busy man. I'm on the move a lot and when I have free time the last thing I want to do is drop on a couch and play a home console~.

Well, since I own all the below (taken from an old post of mine in Sept. 2012, so not up to date).

 

PSone ($300), 60 PSone games ($3,000),

 

PS2 ($300), 80 PS2 games ($4,000+),

 

XBox ($200), 40 XBox games ($2,000),

 

3 360's ($900), 125 360 games ( $7,500), fair amount of XBLA games ($ unknown)

 

Gaming PC ($1,800), Gaming laptop ($800), PC games ($ unknown),

 

2 DS ($200), DS games ($ unknown),

 

PSVita ($250), 7 PSVita games ($175), 6 PSP games ($60),

 

controllers/hd cables/HDTV's/steering wheel/arcade stick/Mt. Dew/snacks/XBL/players guides/game magazines/gas to get rid of Wife and Kids for the day/Gears of War and MK statues/memory cards/ and the list goes on (unknown value).

 

I have no need for a PS3. I bought my Vita in hopes of playing some games I can't find on Steam, XBox360, and the DS. I was hoping to get some of the games I used to enjoy on PS1 and PS2 with some I missed on PS3, without having to hook them all up to my 3DTV.

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there are a ton of exclusives I'd like to play on it. I just don't need it, with the backlog of titles I haven't finished already and I already have other games I'm looking at the moment.

I think that Vita owners that don't own a PS3 are at a distinct disadvantage, especially with the new cross-buy program.

When Sony first launched the Vita, they seemed not to cater to PS3 owners at all, and I don't think that worked out very well.

Until the Vita is able to get a strong library on its own, Sony is probably going to continue to cater to PS3 owners to buy a Vita...
