Personally, I hate that kind of "casual" games.. I simply can't stand them..
You can't compare a vita [which has a gaming platform] to a smartphone [applications platform], software-wise they are 2 completely different worlds..
What? Sorry wasn't clear and also confused to your reply and why you quoted me.
What I was trying to say is that the VITA's graphics shouldn't really be the focus as its graphics will soon be outpaced quite quicker by other platforms.
I still believe they are competitor platforms although being indirect.
Not everyone can afford both platforms.. maybe two
All I am saying is that with tablets, smartphones, portable pmps.. the gpu output will become much much better than what the VITA can do in it's life cycle.
And as of lately, there are more developers starting to take some good interest in those platforms.
Me? I don't even own any smartphone and just a psp, a netbook, a weak lappy and my sig rigs.
But AFAIK, the casual market is a huge chunk and should be considered by sony.. w/c i think they'll be having a hard time competing.. (unless they magically port android or some castrated access of android market through the VITA)
For the asking price, I don't think the VITA's hardware is very appealing.. it's just "promises and wishes" atm. Software is more important imo.
It has the least software library among the other platforms (least backwards compatibility too).
Now you can always say.. "give it some time", And so I will, By that logic might as well wait for the VITA gen 2.
Unless Sony announces that they've met their sales projection or sales target for both software and hardware in the coming months.. I will surely not give the VITA a final judgement of either being a success or failure.
