To some extent, we are at a disadvantage on things like PSP / PSX compatibility, not being able to do the whole transfer thing because Sony of America is too incompetent at keeping up with the other branches is kind of a low blow~.

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

Before purchasing my Vita, that last console I owned was an original PlayStation.

 

I am a PC gamer...my Steam library is way too big, with way too many games I've never touched.

 

I bought my Vita because 1) it gives me access to some console-only franchises, and 2) it gives me a more viable portable gaming solution than my iPhone or iPad does. Any multi-platform title, I'd always choose PC, so there's no real point for me to buy a PS3.

 

In addition, I often watch TV while gaming on either my PC or Vita, something I wouldn't be able to efficiently do with a PS3 (not going to set up a second TV, nor would I want to use P&P since it wouldn't provide audio for both).

 

Do I feel I'm at a disadvantage for not owning a PS3? Not really. Cross-Buy provides an advantage to PS3 owners, but doesn't create a disadvantage for Vita owners....I bought PSABR for $20, much cheaper than I've ever seen the PS3 version sell for.
 PS3 + Vita owners get better value out of PS+, but it's still worth it for Vita alone, so I can't complain (though I wish they'd start giving us better Vita IGC games, especially exclusive ones, aka. not ones available for PS3 as well).

 

Overall, I'm definitely happy with my Vita purchase and have no intention on ever buying a PS3, and very litle intention on buying a PS4, whenever the hell that'd come out. My PC beats any console, especially since I'm building a new one right now.

While this is true, if anything you nailed it with the Steam part. Steam is just what any digital store should aspire to be, PC users get the most out of their money thanks to things like Steam and even GoG~.

Yeah, I love Steam.

 

I've bought less console games in the last couple years thanks to Steam. Just knowing I can still play them when I next upgrade my PC is great. Consoles seem to be moving away from this, and I like being able to use one device that can play games from 10+ years ago. I can bring them with me on my laptop or hook it up to my 3DTV and surround sound and play with m/kb or console controller. Add to that all Steams sales, 4 pack deals that you can gift to friends. Great Stuff.

 

I also agree with, "Liking to be able to game while something is playing on my TV, even if it's while my Wife is watching her shows."

 

Edit: @Deaofly. You're in the wrong thread. It's asking "How many of you Vita owners do NOT have a PS3?" :smileywink:

I primarily game on consoles (which is part of the problem I'll mention), but use PC if it's cheaper and I know I can run it.  Steam sales and indie bundles tend to be much cheaper, so while I do have a large backlog anyway, my Steam backlog in particular is horrible.  I haven't even finished 20% of my Steam games.

The only thing i'd say to that xClayMeow as a PC gamer myself is most of the best PS3 games are NOT available on PC or available on Vita. PC's have and will always blow away consoles from a PURELY spec point of view but when most of the better exclusives for sony are only for their console their is quite a large amount you miss out on. If we were talking about the Xbox i'd agree as most of their hits are also available on PC. PC's for gaming really have become more or less ""MMO BOXES"(Which honestly is what i use mine for) really as those are the biggest money makers on PC's right now and piracy just runs rampant on anything else to the point even Epic studios never released Gears of war 3 normally a game out for Xbox and PC due to it.
