I'm not overreacting.
I am responding to posts after I made the OP in this thread.
I make an observation...
I respond to that....
No hate here for Sony.
No hate here for the Vita.
A little hate for the PS3, because it went ylod on me during the summer
I bought the PSP at launch, got it in from Canada as it was a lot cheaper than getting from the US.
I was, along with most, very impressed but after a few months it became little more than a glorified paper weight as it rarely got played, nothing worth playing.
I sold it, bought another a year later... sold that after it became a paper weight and three years ago bought my final PSP and that's now a would be homebrew device and mostly a paper weight again, but I accept it and it lives with the rest of my handheld console collection in the gamesroom!
I really do want a PS Vita, I want it because it's new, I want it for the new Wipeout game, but there is precious few other reasons why it's not going to wind up ignored after a month, so few are the gaming reasons to keep playing it.
But I will find the cash in the new year, sell a kidney, a lobe of liver and pick one up....
Bound to be a Ridge Racer worth playing on it too!
I expect you hate the 360 & Wii too then after they bit the dust
Ciderman, slayer of current gen consoles
bejesus, for the love of god, dont give him PC!
I don't know wtf is going on at all.
Everything was fine until a lightning storm killed off my PS2, my launch PS2!
The the PS3 went ylod during the summer followed, 2 weeks later, by my PS3, my lovely 60gb PS3!
I was at a crossroads and had to decide which I wanted back as I couldn't afford both, so I traded in everything I had for the PS3 and bought a 250gb 360 in HMV for 190 I think it was.
Then, in November, my Wii, my lovely launch Wii, homebrew channel and all, started to go funny and now that's almost toast as well..
At least my little collection of retro consoles is working fine....
(actually, my Saturn is doing strange things with one game, Soukyu Gurentai Otokuyo, "got it" twice and the same each time, hopefully that isn't on its way out too!)
There's no comparison at all between psp games and smartphone games. My mind boggles that people are even arguing this seriously. [And I've the original psp with malfunctioning analoguie sticks, and a top-of-the range smartphone.]
Retr0 is spot on
Playing the same game on VITA or PS3 is no choice.
Could be worse, we could get mobile ports of console games...
Excuse me while I go over there and vomit.
There's two versions of Souky. The old version gives garbled text on PAL and US consoles and only works on Japanese consoles properly. An updated version was released that works on import consoles. I'm guessing you just have the older version of the game and it looks like it's glitching, it's a known issue.
You are a lifesaver!
I thought my Saturn was about to do something drastic involving Paracetamol and a bottle of vodka, but no, it's the damn disk image!
And give Retr0 a cigar!
Vita in week two sold a measly 75,000 units, compared to 480,000 3DS and even 100,000 PSPs in the same timeframe.
Any European RRP announced?
If I'm stuck on the bog or the train, I'm far more likely to play Game Dev Story for a few minutes than switch on Pokemon (or whatever passes for a game on Sony platforms).
Smartphones will be the real winner because they do handhelds justice.
Mind you, I'd love a real d-pad sometimes.
2 new Android phones arrived in the house this week ZTE RAcer 2 for 70 quid and HTC something for 400 quid.
Phones are going to win this war, Nintendo/Sony could cash in and make their entire back cat available on them.
Havent got to GTA3 yet but looks poorly made, control wise.
And Nintendo haven't even unleashed Pokemon yet!
