Try to be critical of the Vita

26 replies 14 views Edited Nov 29, 2011

For discussion purposes If you could find one thing wrong that might turn you off from the Vita what will it be? For me I think it will be the "low" battery life but its not like I'll be away from home for a while. I also don't think that I'll bring it with me that much unless if its for a long period of time. Probably the 2nd would be not as many original titles (just trying to come up with another answer for why not to buy) Vita only as (that I'm aware of) six original titles Little Deviants, Ruin, Gravity Rush, Sound Shapes, Reality Fighters, and Escape Plan. I think that's a good mix anyway but for a launch like this I think there should be more that says this is what the Vita can do and we don't need old IP's such as Uncharted and Resistance to be successful.

for me it is the memory card prices. are alittle high with no memory card coming with the ps vita. just like how the psp did not come with one.

not having the ability to play ps one game at launch. I was hoping to play some resident evil 1,2,3 , also dino crisis and parasite eve 1,2. No new horrior Ip. no flash on the web browser at least at launch anyway. how playstation suite will not be out of beta when the ps vita comes out. for me thats all I can think of but none of this will make me stop from buying the ps vita.

Most of this stuff could be fixed anyway with a firmware update.

For me its the price of the games. Just like the ps3 and psp, i hate buying games that tend to only last a few hours before i finish them. I want to feel im getting my moneys worth. I have game apps for my phone that last longer and are way cheaper. So basicly, i like all sorts of games being games on phones or games on a handheld. If the games are priced to high, i tend to look elsewere that agrees with my budget.

I think for me it's going to be the buttons. Maybe they are bigger, but when I see them on the videos I imagine having trouble with them. I don't think so, but that is my only worry.

1. It should come packed with at least the lowest available memory card.

2. ALL games for Vita should be available to download from PSN, I really hate retail.

3. They should fix the backward compatibility issue, if not for ps1 games at least for psp titles, I have some great games from my       1st psp that i would like to keep with me.

4. It should be able to at least carry on it to Users or accounts, like the PS3, cause I travel a lot (yes i take my ps3 with me) and I     have 2 accounts one US and one UK, soI buy games and downloadables from both regions, and I would like to be able to do           that with the Vita. This is VERY important for me.

5. A monster device like this one SHOULD have an excellent web browser, does not make sense at all having a crappy flash-less browser.

that's it for now. but these are real turn offs for me.especially 4 & 5.

Well that is not a problem because they have said that will happen already, but not all games will be available in physical format.

1. Battery life. Sure, bigger battery would have weighed more, but if it could get 1-3 more hours, it's worth it right?

2. Games. Yes, it looks like the Vita will get some quality games. But they're just continuations in series that already exist (Modnation, Uncharted, LBP).

3. Form factor. The analog sticks always sticking out is a pain in my pocket. I hope they're not flimsy and can break off.

4. No internal memory. Maybe it was for cost reasons, but it still should've been implemented.

5. Non-replaceable battery. Yeah, I know, rear touch pad is in the way, but having a battery you can easily swap out, replace, etc is really useful nowadays.

6. For 3G: AT&T and the limits. For one, the 3G is severely limited to strictly web browsing, social media, Near, etc. And it is 3G, so it's not too fast. Moreover, the plans for them will probably be the same as tablets and such, so it's going to cost a lot for anyone who already has a data plan.

7. Price for many things. Games may be a lot to make (And they have to make up for the loss from the system), but honestly no game lasts more than a few hours at most.
