Handhelds have been garbage for a while now. There aren't enough long games on them anymore for them to be worthwhile to me. There might be a grand total of 3 or 4 long games that I actually like in the handheld's lifespan. Not worth it.

I guess it's nice that it has an OLED screen though.

I've always been a phone junkie, I'll save the 300 towards my next phone. There's just so much more that can be done.

Dual core phones today cost more then this.

I don't mean to be rude guys but anyone who is comparing the specs to smartphones needs to shut up seriously.


For starters there isn't a massive hardcore gaming market on smartphones.

There is infinity blade and Real Racing which are anywhere near remotely PS2 graphics never mind hard core "gamer" games.

There aren't going to be anytime soon, people buy phones for the texting,messaging, emailing, facebook and angry bird type casual games.

People buy PS Vita's, PSP's 3DS's for proper gaming experiences not calling, messaging facebook etc.


2 completely different markets that may share hardware traits and features, but do not function at their core level the same at all.

These Pieces of Junk ARE JUST TOO EXPENSIVE, I'm not paying no $250 for it, sorry, NO DEAL!

 

To top that off you need an ultra-expensive memory stick, which was another way Sony wanted to capitalize on hardware sales (bad business AGAIN)...

 

When you are done buying 4 games and everything you need, you will be well into $400, or more...

 

IT'S NOT WORTH IT, I don't care how you slice it, dice it, flip it, turn it, it's just another hyped POS disposable mobile piece of junk!

If you'd rather "game" on a smartphone, you were never part of the Vita market to begin with, so stop saying "I'll save my money for a quad-core smartphone." Go ahead and have fun playing Cut The Rope while you're taking a poop, but stop acting like you're cutting into Vita marketshare.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. You make me laugh. What a stupid comment. Its not that its expensive its that you just cant afford it. They actually just had the 32GB memory sticks on Buy.com for the Vita for 42.28 Thats ok we dont someone like you touching the vita anyways. So far i have spent over $450.00 on the vita and game & I still dont find it expensive

A modern smartphone also has much more functionality in the real world. The addition of a built in GPS, mobile radio (3G or 4G on every device), and a slew of apps that take advantage of all of this makes a smart phone "smart". While specs compared to the Vita are inferior, the capabilities are superior.

Since they're different markets, you can't really compare prices. The technology stuffed into a modern smartphone is nothing short of stunning, and that helps to account for a little bit of the price difference. Also, the Vita requires proprietary memory cards and and game media, while smartphones do not. Smartphones today are a showcase of open-standards (Wifi, bluetooth, SD cards, 3G/4G(LTE), micro-USB, HDMI, etc.) The Vita is more than likely sold at a loss per unit with the hopes that the expenses will be recouped on games and multimedia purchases, while phones that are sold a la carte make a nice profit for the privilege of having them "unlocked."

Why are we still comparing a Gaming Device with smart phones. Its stupid. Sony did not build the Vita for compete with smart phones but to play games on. I cannot believe this stupid debate is still going on Smart Phones vs the Vita. A Smart Phone is not a true gaming device. No wonder I dont come to this thread anymore. Alot of really stupid and pointless posts. If you want a Smart phone go buy one if you want the Vita go buy one. If you have nothing constructive to say or to add & or you dont plan to buy the Vita then just shut it.

I don't blame those who say it is too expensive, I was in the same position. I was going to wait until the price dropped to around $175 and then consider it if there were enough games I wanted. I got mine as a gift and now I am absolutely hooked on the thing. Awesome hardware, love the screen, and love the fact that I can buy full Vita games on the PS store for less than retail, and there are hundreds of PSP games for me to catch up on that I can download from $5-$30, most are around $20. I have an iPhone 4S and iPad2 and gaming on those isn't even in the same category, the games on those devices can still be fun, but it is a different experience, not really meant to be compared in my opinion. If you're in the position where you think the Vita expensive then I recommend waiting a year to buy it cheaper and then you get some games cheaper and there will be more of them, but if you can afford it and find some games you will enjoy, don't wait...it is a sweet piece of hardware.
