13 replies 57 views Edited Sep 30, 2011

A ps3 system for the vita if it was a newer slim one?The re ason I ask is.Because I plan on buying a vita when it comes out early spring.But I would not want to hang onto both system.I travel for my work doing a seasonal worker.And I move every six months to a new location.A lot  fun if you like travel.I was just wondering if any wondo such a thing.I mean the vita will be a ps3 just wo'n't have blue ray on it.Plus in that area I just use my laptop for movies etc..It would be a big strech for some of you.But would any of you do.I'm thinking about it my self...

For what you described, the PSV may suit you better.

But a Vita is not a PS3.  PS3 has more utility as a home theatre center/entertainment hub, as it'll play on your TV, handle multipleyer on the one system, supports bluray (vita won't help and niether will laptop if no bluray drive).

It might suit you to trade. Would I? No, they are different systems, I'd want both; wouldn't trade one for the other.

That is what I am having a hard time making a choice on.Since I travel a lot like I said , every s.ix months or so.I know most people would want both..My suituation is a little different.I do love my ps3 just wonder if this would be better for me.I also wouhld still have the other console at home when/if I go for breaks or use my laptop for online gaming it is powerful enough.

I suggest sticking with the PS3 because the selection of games is larger. If space is an issue, I suggest getting one of these clip on monitors that fits on a PS3 Slim...

Good choice. BTW if you have internet access available for your PS3 and Vita, you will be able to remote play games on your Vita (in theory). So the Vita will almost be like having a portable PS3.

I'd say stick with the vita. Just like Solar_Difusion said, it would suit you better.

I am still going to get the vita when it comes out( so far away) But I still need some sort of entertainment in the meant time.

I would'nt trade a PS3 for a PSVITA but i would trade a PSP for a PSVITA if i could but it probably would'nt work.
