So who's buying the Playstation Vita?

Anyone?

Havn't seen much buzz about it other than Taco Bell. I'm probibly gonna pass on it. I played a demo unit at my local gamestop and while it has good graphics, it just seems like more of the same ol same ol. I bought the PSP when it came out last time, and I felt kinda burned by it. Heck, I'm still content with my ds lite. With mobile phone gaming improving by leaps and bounds, I just don't see any kind of Longevity for the Vita. It just feels like a case of too late.

I'll buy one as soon as they crack it and develop some decent PS2, DC, and GC emulators.

Wow, not too many I guess, I did a search and there were no threads about the vita, so it must really not be generating that much buzz...

We got 2 demos units at work... It looks REAL nice. I mean nice. However, everything else about it blows..

Aside from seeing the name on the Taco Bell marquee, I have no idea what this thing even is.

Re: So who's buying the Playstation Vita?

Being the massive Persona fan that I am, I'll probably pick it up when Persona 4 comes out on the system. Other than that, I'll wait.

I'm definitely tempted because of Uncharted: Golden Abyss.

No killer apps and a three-hour battery life equals no purchase for me.

Re: So who's buying the Playstation Vita?

I haven't been much of a portable gamer since the GameBoy Color days. I had a GBA SP at one point but didn't use it all that often, and I used my DS Lite even more rarely than that. I doubt I'll ever give the Vita anything more than a cursory look.

Re: So who's buying the Playstation Vita?

I checked one out at a Gamestop today, and I have to say the hardware is pretty impressive. The thing packs a serious punch. I'm not buying one at launch, since none of the launch games look like they'll grab me (well, the Uncharted game seems pretty interesting) but I'm going to be tempted when the Resistance title comes out. A true FPS with dual stick controls on a powerful portable device could be a nice thing to have when I travel.

Re: So who's buying the Playstation Vita?

High Price Tag + You need to buy very pricey memory cards + MEH launch lineup (Uncharted doesn't count cause its not Naughtydog)

Nope

Also is it just me or does anyone else thumbs hurt after a while on a handheld console, they always feel strained after a while.

Re: So who's buying the Playstation Vita?

I gotta be honest, in this day and age I just don't see the appeal of a handheld video game console.

My Android phone (Samsung Galaxy SII Skyrocket, by no means a slouch in the tech spec department) is a much better tool for "entertainment on the go". I can listen to music, watch movies and TV shows, and play games. I can even use a PS3 controller via bluetooth with the sucker.

I'm waiting for one of the "big boys" (Nintendo, Sony, MS) to come out with a handheld console that's also a phone, with all the features a smartphone entails. N-gage was a nice idea done in by poor industry support (and I don't know if the handheld itself was any good.)
