PlayStation Vita = Poop?

51 posts in this topic

If you're really into japanese games then yes. On the contrary, no. 

 

But just one technical issue: I dont know if it's just mine that is old and not 100% anymore, but I noticed that recent games dont run too well. There are noticeable fps drops.

like im sure the majority have said, if you dont mind not having the largest selection of AAA titles you'll feel right at home. there are still a ton of games to play on the vita, and a lot of them are quite amazing and enjoyable.  for me the vita fills in that time gap during my commute where i can just relax and play something silly, usually games that arent terribly long and dont need to invest a lot of time into.  dont get me wrong there are plenty of those as well.  lots of indie games, lots of japanese / visual novels. if you're looking to stack trophies then get it, looking to just get more trophies in general then get it. dont care for big titles, want to find some hidden gems you might not have ever considered? etc etc.   

 

tl;dr   just get one.

Except there are so many great games on VITA and not switch. 

It is still possible to get some good retail deals - I recently got lumines from cex for £6 and can trade it back for £4. Games are also very often on digital sale. So basically just the same as you should do on all consoles - get cheap retail or wait for digital sales. 

Honestly, even if the Vita had a slight edge, which would come down to individual preference and not mass market appeal, most of the Switch's games have a larger mass market appeal than the Vita's trademark JRPG stuff, that's only going to go away with time anyway, because the Switch is still getting games, the Vita hasn't got an exclusive in longer than I can remember.

 

Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, Fire Emblem Warriors, StarLink's StarFox, Mario + Rabbids, Xenoblade, Pokemon, and so on, and they're just some exclusives off the top of my head. Then you've got games that are exclusive to Switch and Wii U (no one owns a Wii U though so may as well be Switch only), like Bayonetta 2, Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8, Donkey Kong Country, Captain Toad, New Super Mario Bros, Hyrule Warriors, and more. Then you've got upcoming exclusives like Fire Emblem, Pokemon, Metroid Prime 4, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, and so on, and these are all just the EXCLUSIVES I could think of off the top of my head.

 

Vita has a decent Uncharted, Killzone, Gravity Rush, Tearaway I guess, and that's about it as far as things worth checking out go. And the latter 2 are already on PS4 and run much better. Vita's exclusive COD was shit, Vita's exclusive Resistance was shit, Vita's exclusive Assassin's Creed went to other consoles. *Most* stuff worthwhile on Vita has already made the jump to another console. That's it. It ain't getting any more stuff. And sure, there's a semi-decent offering of third party stuff on the console, but if you're gonna bring that argument in, then you can bring in the Switch's third party stuff which undeniably trounces the Vita's offerings.

 

Also Lumines is great. I like the Vita one, got it with Plus, and had the physical cart for like 8 bucks many moons ago. Lumines Remastered is available on Switch though, so I'll get my fix there if I need.

I enjoy the games on vita. It looks good, fancy. I only wish the screen was a little bit bigger.  For a old man like me sometimes I just got to squint to see the text. But I can imagine how much more Itll cost if any bigger. Also the buttons could be a tiny bit bigger. But Sony is soon removing anymore free plus games for vita so support probably will get worse and worse. Sending games to download from ps store doesn't even seem to work 90% of the time so it's reaaaally stressful trying download dlc and such because the store on vita itself is a mess. But i still love my baby....

Same with sending games to download for Ps3 from browser store. Now is really the time to play everything u got for these old systems. Soon it may be a hell to even download a game for them as their website advances but not the system itself.

Erm, yes, but not sure what your point is. Indeed switch has more mass market appeal, but that doesn't remove all the great games on VITA. Switch getting more games also doesn't remove the VITA games... Little confused as to what you are trying to disagree with specifically. You seem to want to ignore VITA games because they don't make as many sales(???)

Listen... I love the Vita. Does it have "great exclusive titles" not really. There's a few. In the time of the Switch I would almost always reach for the Switch first. 

 

If you love trophy hunting though, the Vita is a goldmine. There's something so great about being able to earn trophies wherever you go. Would I buy one now if I didn't care about trophies? Hell no. I absolutely LOVE this machine though. I took it with me all around the world & was always entertained with the games it has.

If given the choice, I'd rather not play 2D indie titles on a big screen, so the Vita covers those when I'm traveling. I'm feeling that I've made the most of it in 2-3 years, but whatever, it's free trophies when I'm not home, so... whatever.

Honestly if you're not into visual novels then you should consider buying a switch instead. 

I personally love the PS Vita I think it's a great handheld console and it has one of my favorite video game series which is Danganronpa. 

There are some exclusives like Uncharted Golden Abyss though. The only problem I have with the Vita is that the games are ridiculously expensive for what they are.

I don't know if it's worth it, are the games good?

 

Tough call. My feeling is, if you aren't already excited about the games, you probably won't get excited after this thread.

 

For me, the Vita was great, because of the large number of Japanese games that came there. But I wouldn't recommend it to someone who doesn't already feel the need to scratch that itch.

There's certainly something to this. I personally don't care all that much for VNs, but the trophies on the Vita ultimately sealed the deal. Cross buys with extra plats are nice, too.

Though it is good for others who aren't Vita owners and are browsing the comments

Vita is underrated.  Being backward compatible with PS1 & PSP games bought from PSN only makes it better.  The one bad thing is that they made their own proprietary memory cards, rather than using microSDHC ones like the Switch.

 

Playstation TV/PSVitaTV units are getting insanely expensive now... I've seen them hit $200+. 🙁 Glad I got mine when it was $50.

I still find it very odd that hike happened at all, for a system supposedly in low demand. I was very glad to get mine only months before for 60 dollars as a replacement for my Vita.
