Why BUY the Sony VITA?

Is the Vita slowly dying...or is it finding its audience and gaining a passionate following? I finally buy a Sony Playstation Vita and here are the reasons why YOU may want to as well!


The remote play from PS4 is pretty incredible. I'm amazed at how well it works!

There's very little I can't do on my OnePlus One that I'd need a Vita or DS-whatever-version-they're-on-now. I don't need the control inputs (I have a phonejoy if I wish to use it).

Sorry, but I think the day of dedicated gaming handhelds is over, FWIW, IMO.

Pretty much any windows 10 device will be able to stream from the Xbox one. This is a cool feature.

Like everyone else, late to the Vita party when it could have helped it not be a necro like 2 years ago.

I don't blame you, proprietary cards are expensive. There are about 12 good titles outside shitty indie games and it is mostly a RPG/port machine. (Atlus)

The customization is a huge plus for me but I wish I could add more screens as people with a crap loads of games that like them per series a screen run short.

I hate the remote play

Lack of R2/L1 buttons suck. (although the adapter is in the works)

I hate how Sony's selling it as an accessory to the PS4.

If it weren't for 3rd party companies and ports the Vita would be dead.

As a mostly pure Ps Vita reviewer it pains me to say that Sony has done NOTHING to bring over the best Vita titles held over from Japan. (3rd party still but damn it)

Region free is great. Like a Vita that isn't available in the plain USA? Get it from Rommel's country!

As a handheld it SHITS all over the New 3DS and people usually ignore it as has the retail stores and the Nintendo only handheld mentality.

Either way I love my Vita. It is my second favorite handheld of all time.

I love my Vita. I carry it everywhere I go. Too bad the internet in my house is shit or I would stream my PS4 to my Vita while I'm not home. Inside the house is awesome though.

I actually want a VITA but im not sure it will even be around by the time i get around to it. It seems like a hell of a handheld and legit better than the 3DS. It may end up being the most powerful handheld ever. Gran turismo would make it an immediate buy for me.

Also, comb yo beard nigga.

You should have bought an OLED Vita, that was the main reason to own one.

PS Slim has better battery life, better buttons and it doesn't have un-researched tech.

Ummh, what "un-researched tech" would that be? Maybe you're talking about that weird expansion port that - to my knowledge - never saw any use. Other than that... I've got a (European) launch Vita, and after the initial firmware updates, there were never any problems. I've repeatedly been amazed at its multi-tasking capabilities - I always have a game running in the background, with a browser to look up things on GameFAQs. Then, when I gett off work but are not yet on the train, I start Skype so my family knows I'm available and can video-call me, put on an MP3 track, SWITCH THE THING OFF to save power, and I'm STILL able to listen to music, take incoming calls or refresh "near".

It's a bummer Sony's actively killing some applications, removing YouTube, Google Maps and Skype (or so I'm told, it still works perfectly fine for me). I don't own a smartphone, so I'm using my 3G Vita as a more than capable replacement. Google Maps came in handy at times, and the service provided addresses for near. Without those, near has lost all of the little appeal it had.

Little known bonus bit: If you've downloaded a PSP game with multiplayer capabilities, you can install it on your PS Vita and PSP (I assume most Vita owners also have a PSP lying around) and start multiplayer matches with the same account, no workaround necessary. I recently downloaded the "Capcom Classics" for PSP (which were and partly still are on sale in Europe), and playing "Final Fight" or "Street Fighter II Turbo" with my brother is nothing short of awesome...

P.S.: The single most impressive detail on the Vita, in my opinion? "Dragon's Crown" works pretty much flawlessly over 3G, no WiFi necessary. Also, it's cross-play compatible with the PS3 version. That was an experience on par with playing the original "Phantasy Star Online" on the Dreamcast when it came out...

Honestly I'm not sure you're being honest.

There's a world of difference between a mobile and a dedicated mobile gaming device, the controls and quality of games being only two examples. There is a place for both.

OLED screens

they haven't really been researched/been around as LCD's have. Shit is just glass/ chemical that burns fast IMO with unnatural colors.

I love my Vita thou pair it nicely with my Bose Soundlink.

Better buttons/battery life/natural screen/durability = POS? lol no

Original just has better weight around it.

Sony's been using OLED screens since 2004. How long do you want them to test the tech before they release it?
