Don't get me wrong, I love my Vita. It just doesn't look promising to me. I look at the list of upcoming games and I see a few that look good to me, but that's it. A few games. There was/is potential to make some big selling games. Bioshock or Borderlands would have made a lot of money for Sony but they couldn't make a deal. Sony needs to get these deals done for some big budget, high profile games. The occasional jrpg or port will not work. Trying to sell the Vita as a ps4 controller will not work. If they continue doing what they're doing I don't think the Vita will last very long.
If you are seeing how the sales of the Vita are holding up in Japan, ever since the price cut, the sales of the Vita have easily quadrupled and are holding steady, and it is selling 1:2 with the 3DS (i.e. 1 vita for nearly every 2 3DS's sold). Compare that to 1:7 in the past. Things are only going to get better for the Vita...
I was with you till you started talking about Japan. I don't live in Japan if I did I would matter to sony. That's the truth. I don't care how the sales are in Japan. The sales jump great for them they are gonna get more exclusives. That's not helping me. Sales need to jump here for more games to come out here and I just don't see that happening.
Well, I mean when Sony eventually brings the price cut to the west, it will sell well here too. The only reason Sony is yet to cut the price for the Vita in the west is there aren't many games getting released soon. In Japan, a plethora of games were released at about the same time the price was cut. That's why Sony decided to cut the price. If they cut the price here too, sure the Vita would have sold a few more consoles here, but that would be a short term bubble. It wouldn't sustain, and when good games do get released, the hype is all lost.
I bet there will be a price cut later this year. There are some great games being released in Q3 and Q4 of 2013, and the PS4 will be released too. I wouldn't be surprised if there is a price cut to the Vita around the time Killzone is released or even the PS4... Heck a bunch of Vitas might get sold simply due to the PS4... (DON'T start saying Vita is ONLY a PS4 controller...)
Anyway, off to play PSASBR, Wipeout, Metal gear solid, NSF MW, blah, blah, blah on my Vita...
Oh, what's that? Your playing PSP games on your Vita.. That's cute!
My dude Tron makes a good point though. I'm playing more PSP games on my Vita than anything else. Is it too hard to get some console games onto the Vita? Or at least some decent multiplayer titles?
I should not be logging many hours playing MGSPW and Tekken 6 on my Vita. Rather I should be playing BF, Star hawk, So com, Tomb raider, and other AAA games on my vita.
So you dont agree with him yet u want to play BF, Starhawk, Socom, Tomb Raider on vita...they are Console games so they cant be their own psvita games lol
I may try SS out, I'm more of a shooter and sports game fan.
MLB The show 12, 13...Madden 13, Fifa must be RPGs huh
Really? so with the PS vita being a PS4 controller and being able to stream PS4 games is consider support? xD Wow, Fanboys never surprise me. Forget making it it's own console let's make it a controller, right>?
It's okay to be angry you bought a handheld thinking sony would support it to compete against it's own PS4 rather than have it as a "Side-Kick" compatible handheld.
