Thread: Is PS vita a good investment?

  1. #1

    Default Is PS vita a good investment?

    After buying the system I am in doubt that whether all those cash was well spent. I was browsing to find answer to my doubts and they put me in a mountain of doubts :S . The Vita feels so good to hold, it feels like I am holding the future of handheld gaming in my hand.

    Sadly, big game sites like IGN even wrote that nor the present neither the future is bright for PS vita (((((((((((((((((.
    Third party developer are not showing their interest in the system for Vita in not selling as expected and customers are not buying as there are not many games and the other reason is obvious, Sony is not willing to drop their price.

    Can it be shouted that- WE ARE DOOMED?

    You're complaining about game prices?



    Look, EA reduced £10. EA DID.

    I think I said before that PS Vita is not a good investment. Even though I highly doubt that I would ever buy a Nintendo 3DS XL. But from current perspective it has better game library as a handheld. But, it does not have the Sony exclusives.

    Maybe if price of Vita is reduced to $200, then more people might buy it and then third party developers would consider it.

    People won't buy because there just aren't any games. Pricing is great (as a new handheld) but the games aren't there. Mine has been collecting dust for a long time :/

    How is the online? I am considering to buy a game with good online gameplay, I am thinking of FIFA. Has anyone played any online games?
    Though I have to admit that browsing is very comfortable in vita.

    I did not try online but did try the FIFA demo. A cousin of mine rated it to be very good, and he is a FIFA nut.

    But I saw some rpg games getting very good reviews and Batman is also in development.... I mean is there no chance for the Vita. Cause when PSP was released for the first time it also didn't have a lot of games either.....

    Aayman man, can you get a confirmation from him that whether or not PS vita is online playable in BD. Cause, sadly foul SONY does not provide a memory card with the system, and I can't even login to PSN without one.

    I didn't say there is no chance, just that now is not the right time since you'll not have many games to play with. My cousin played it on my Vita, he doesn't have one. But I did use to play lag free with PSP.

    I'll be in BD in 3 weeks and I'll have my Vita with me, if I can set up a wireless router at home then I can try it out for you.

    Then you must know about how to buy game from online. I am a xbox guy though I have a psp but didn't try online ever. Is there some sort of card or something that I can use to buy games online? Cause buying games from online is much much cheaper then buying disc from BD.

    A lot of PSP games are available online but I don't know anything about Vita titles, I know Uncharted is available so I suppose other big games can be there.

    If you want to buy using cards, then you can buy PSN gift cards for the purchase if you don't have credit card access yourself.

    They messed up title like COD, what an opportunity they had. I think the failure of such titles effected the market. But I still hope that Sony will do something inviting for the Third party. And they should have included Android support, then the machine could have shown its true potential, I mean its a powerhouse with no use of its power yet. SO SAD.
