your talking in circles and I have to go to work soon so I cant keep repeating this. Your just not going to get it. Most gamers I know own or at least do want to own more than one console. but the idea of having a ps3 in your pocket will effect home console sales. Its not tech its business, thats why the thing was made, that was the goal behind giving it all the features of a home console on the go amd if you believe otherwise then your an idiot.
with that my peace is said, please refrain from reapeating your opinion again, we get it, you find home consoles better than handhelds, good for you sir
lol if you expect your Vita to be a PS3 then go right ahead and be dissapointed. You should expect the PS Vita to be a PS Vita, not a PS3. Just like an iPad is not a Mac and will not do everything a Mac can do. But it excels in what it's SUPPOSED to do. Vita is not supposed to replace the PS3, and it won't replace the PS3. People buy PS Vita because it's a great portable, not because it's a home console. I hope you realized the whole PS3 in your pocket thing was a metaphor.
Again if you knew anything about marketing, you would realize Sony wouldn't want to canabalize their own sales. And the PSP had no effect on PS2 sales either.
oK wow just wow, you totally misread everything i said in that last post. Sony doesnt care if you buy a vita or a ps3, they get the money and the sale either way so if you only have enough money to buy ONE gaming unit (console or otherwise) then sony has 2 to offer compared to microsofts one. Id say they have better odds at the sale there
Ya know what, no no no im not going to do this again, I dont have the time or the energy anymore to esxplain to you how simple marketing works. Im just going to say you win
yep your smarter, sexier, cooler, and know more about all things gaming and marketing than anyone else online. Thats why you post in a forum instead of run your own company, cause you sir are just that AWESOME. Im seriously done here, type about how wrong everything i said is until your fingers bleed idk im done
ppi would be less on the ps vita since it has a larger screen, the iphone has a 3.2 inch screen and the ps vita has a 5 inch screen. For example, the ipad 2 has a 9.7 screen but only has 132 ppi. If you wanna compare phones , the Sony xperia S has 4.3 in screen 720x1280 and 342 ppi. If I want a good phone, I would prolly grab an iphone. If I want a great handheld gaming device, the ps vita is my 1st choice
A phone is a phone, a dedicated gaming console is a gaming console. like apples and oranges. Simple as that.
I like to think of PS Vita as a unique gaming handheld, there. =)
Yeesh, just stick to the point....
The Vita is the Vita. End of story.
The reason it is compared to PS3 is because
1. The initial looks at it had PS3-quality-esque graphics on it, so people overhyped it being a miniature PS3
2. It's also made by Sony. And similar titles are on both systems.
The reason it is compared to smartphones is because
1. They share many of the same features (Touchscreen, music player, browser, 3G/GPS, apps)
2. They're about the same price point.
The Vita is just another dedicated gaming device, with a couple extras. There's not much to compare it to, so they do what they can (And they can't really compare against the 3DS, two different target audiences, and much different hardware).
