PS Vita vs.. PSP 3000

11 replies 4415 views Edited Nov 10, 2012

Okay so for Christmas this year I've done all my shopping, I just started thinking about what I want.  I was thinking a PS Vita, hopefully it'll have more games soon, and it can play PSP games on the PS store, so I got really excited because then I would have access to lots of good RPGs and other games, namely Kingdom Hearts : Birth by Sleep, but I found out to my great disappointment that its not on the PS Store (Darn you Disney!!!), so I was thinking PSP maybe?  One of the whole points I wanted one is that I could play BBS and have access to lots of other good games, and that I like how the Vita has analog sticks, but that went down the crapper, and I don't like my chances of waiting for BBS to come to the PS Store, but then I thought, well a lot of the RPGs on there are turnbased to some extent, so the analog sticks wouldn't be that big a problem.  What do you all (vosotros) think?

Disney has no control over Kingdom hearts. Square enix does. Kind of a tough choice, you can buy a used PSP for like $50 and play all the games you want......wink.....wink....plus the umds are cheaper and you can always resell them. I'd say PSP.

How are the graphics?  Are they par to the PS2?

If you haven't got either one right now I would definitely go with the psp 3000 games are a dime a dozen cheap. The screen makes ps1 games even look like they have been upgraded. PSP games even better. Once you have played all the psp games you wont too then get the vita. It looks like it is going to be a long time before all the psp and ps1 games will grace the vita. Some may never be on it. The vita is a nice piece of equipment but they just don't have it quiet there yet.

From your post, it sounds like I think you would be better off purchasing a PSP 3000.  If you look at the base price for the 3000, it is obviously going to be at a lower price point then the Vita.  However, the main reason is the much more extensive library of the PSP that should make it your first purchase.  I would just get a PSP and enjoy the games you want to play (Kingdom Hearts).  From a Vita owner though, in my opinion in a few years the Vita library will be just as extensive, so you'll have to get one eventually Smiley Happy .

Get the PS Vita. I bought a PSP years ago and returned it after a week. The fact that it only had one analog stick made it almost completely unplayable to me. I don't know how they could have possibly thought having only one analog stick was a good idea. The PSP is the only Sony game console that I didn't like. It had so much potential.

Get the PSP.  Great games and device.  Half the price and games under 10 bucks easy on Craigslist and eBay....

I think you should get the PSP, even though the Vita looks nice and have coll features the PSP dosen't have. But, you will we get great deals on games and BTW they are still making games from the PSP, Japan actually is selling some of it games to the US. So you will get great games from Japan.
