It's even got a fantastic launch lineup of games. Honestly, its the most varied and solid launch lineup of games in over 7 years I think. The PS3, 360, 3DS, and PSP had really meh launch title games. The Wii had a few like Zelda TWP and Red Steel, easily the most interesting lineup at the time, but the Vita has quite a varied selection. And a number of them too.
The hardware is touted as amazing, with only minor preference differences.
The software is really impressive.
The battery isn't anywhere near as bad as previously predicted.
Sony is already showing support with promises of Netflix. Probably VUDU and Hulu to follow (why not?).
PlayStation Suite allows mobile app developers to convert to Vita with practically 1-touch conversation. Cross platforming ftw.
This device is like a dream come true! Can't see the problem here.
1. Hidden cost: MMC price. (270 dollars for a "functional" VITA)
a 3DS is easier to swallow at a 100 Dollars cheaper.
2. Not the best backwards compatibility support. Stuck with PSN PSP games, no PSOne Classics support ATM.
a 3DS can play your DS cartridges your UMD's are probably "wasted". You'd still have to lug your PSP for BBS, FFVII:CC
3. Browser isn't that good compared to other PMPs (Note, Touch).
4. Hardware "potential" is just that atm: Potential.
Just pointing out 3DS since its a direct competition (and Touch and Note as indirect competition)
I'd give the VITA more time to mature so it can be a more worthy buy for me. Plus games would be discounted by then.
Am I missing any amazing MPs on it by not being an early adopter where that game's MP base is almost dead in a few months? or are VITA games mostly SP?
Don't get me wrong. I like the VITA and gonna get one later (maybe 2nd gen). But its a little tough pill to swallow just to game on the go ATM.
Really depends on most peoples gaming habits as well I guess. Probably AT HOME is still where most gaming happening goes and on the go, one's already pre occupied with their phone games.
Did Sony really say they're gonna be putting netflix on it? I'd love that.
