[Various]*update*Playstation Vita reviews*penny arcade added* - Page 10

post #91 of 259
Was just at a PS Vita preview event, played Uncharted, Wipeout, and a fighting game - my take on the Vita..
  • The graphics are impressive, alot better than what you see on high-end smartphones
  • The controls are fluid, but I didn't get a chance to use the back touchscreen
  • Once you get down to it, it felt like a PSP with touch controls and 2 thumb sticks
  • The release price (here in NZ) is the same as a PS3 Slim 160GB, NZ$450 - not worth the money IMO.

Im not getting into an argument about this xAtLx. This thread has already been cleansed once, and I'm not going to be a part of another one. (it may still happen, though)

I'm moving on, and you should too.

Whoever plays the mature game instantly loses. Similar to the humble game.

On topic, I've been wanting one since it was announced (huge psp fan here) however the price is just too much. Between the system, the memory and a SINGLE game, I was looking at $310+ ... and that's for the 4gb memory. Looking at $350 if you want the 16gb card (really, I can't see myself using much less if I want music/videos/games all at the same time...)

So I then looked at 3DS prices, and with a little luck on ebay and amazon found a system, 1 game, 16gb sdhc card, the Nyko power pak+ (doubles the battery life), all for ~$200.

Went for the 3ds a few weeks ago, having a blast with it so far (Zelda!). I am a little irked at the lack of hack n slash/dungeon crawlers so far, but some are in the works so they will get here eventually.

It sounds like you've basically made a lifelong commitment if you two have been together this long, so unless you guys live in different places, she's basically your wife in every way except for the "exchange of vows" part.
I'm glad your job allows for you to have a handheld in the work place. Mine does not. Usually my "break" is a planning period that I use to prepare for the following days. If I'm not doing that, I'm making phone calls or writing request forms and other administrative tasks.
Now, I'm glad the Vita fits you. You are a rare exception compared to most adults your age. Most people have careers and subsequent lives that leave little time or use for a handheld console.

First off, have you ever heard of people who do not want to be married? Or Atheists? I have been with my woman for over 13 years. She has been divorced and never wants to marry again. I have never married and an Atheist so I have no interest in a religious union. You are either very ignorant or just overly opinionated. I'll let you decide. smile.gif

On Topic: Why is this whole thread comparing this device to a mobile phone? I would compare this more to a tablet than a phone... it's like a gaming tablet. Personally I'll keep my 7 inch screen running 1024 x 600 resolution with accelerometer for racing/flying games. On screen touch controls also work very nice in RPGs. I paid $190 for mine, which has 4 GBs of internal space (1.5 GBs for apps) a micro SD slot, a real USB port and a real HDMI port. No I won't get titles like Uncharted for my tablet but I don't have the time to play Uncharted on my 30 minute lunch break or my 15 minute breaks. I wanna play Mahjong or some simple quick race games. I also can mount my tablet in the truck (like a GPS) and use it for my stereo mp3 player. Full support of web browsing at hot spots is another plus over a Vita. A tablet just does more for about the same amount of money, less in my case. However, if you want a portable PS3 then this device will be the only answer. A tablet or a cell phone will not compete in the gaming capabilities right now. By the end of the year, however, that may change.

I agreed with whatever you just typed ^^^ up there biggrin.gif how ever us human see thing differently from different angle.

I have a tablet and i love it to death, but one thing i found is the control is quite off, i played Modern Combat 3 on an ipad 3 + Galaxy 10" using "FLING ATTACHMENT JOY STICK" and it still doesn't feel like buttons and analog stick offered by a controller.

I also played Final Fantasy Tactic on the IPad vs my PSP, and yet my PSP render graphic much more smoother and shows more background texture in the process, compare to my IPad 2, which offer more powerful (hardware / Software)

The way i see it i, Tablet and Phone will never come close to a dedicated gaming device (in term of gaming of course)

That resolution is awfully low for a 5" screen nowadays. I would have thought it would at least have a 1280x720 resolution.

You are more than likely correct. The Vita is a gaming machine with some extra functions tossed in. A tablet is not built for gaming specifically so it won't compete currently. One can't tell the future 100%, though. Who knows what next year's tablets will be capable of. Cell phones, will not compete, like you said.

Can you even tell the difference between 720p vs Vita resolution ?

The game look stunning on that OLED screen, taking "resolution" out of the equation. Try one out and you will be surprise biggrin.gif

Let see what Apple / Android have in store for ours tablet in the future biggrin.gif

People have a really skewed opinion of resolution these days, if I can't see the individual pixels - it's enough for me. and when I was trying the Vita tonight I couldn't see pixels.
