    The vita doesn’t have many games that’s still a fact…

    • josh says:

      Vita will fail, and Sony is just too proud to ever take a look at the freaking facts. I’ve had a vita since release, and honestly, I’ve only used it to play little big planet, and MGS. (which is about 10 times). Then, I bought a nexus 4 and gave the vita to my dad(all he uses it for is to look at nature pics -.-)

      Vita, there’s no other way to put this, you’re a fucking waste of time and money.

      • clyde says:

        Relax your testicles Josh! Sony (to their fault) admittedly has not handled marketing the device well but that doesn’t mean the Vita will fail. The PS4 is due to be released soon and the cross functionality between the two devices sounds amazing and I’m staying hopeful for the coming E3 announcements pertaining to the PS4 and Vita.

        There are still many games in development and still so much more potential to be unlocked. Don’t let your own ignorance get the better of you. Good things will come eventually, and things have only just begun. A system isn’t DEAD because you say it is.

      you are aware that the 3ds came out with only 1 game. you sir do not know what you are talking about.

      • Ry says:

        When the 3ds came out the titles available were Street Fighter, Rayman, and FIFA, a year later it was Ocarina of Time and Pokemon.

        PsVita released with FIFA and Ridge Racer… a year later the releases are Rayman and FIFA

        • KuroRyuu913 says:

          A year later we got Ragnarok Odyssey, Soul Sacrifice, Dead or alive, Street Figher X Tekken, etc.

          It takes time for each console to get games, 3Ds owners from day one should know how that feels.

    • gunblade says:

      yea sony got mostly psp game n like fifty vita or so games u.s i guessing. sum of the apps r alright. the game that r out r prety short resistence .. assasssins creed was alright. cross play with like marverl vs camcom alright network wise i guess touch screen prety lag.. lil deveient sum mini games alright.. they should have had internal storage in the vita atleast with like sixteen or twenty and have the merory card jus as add on storage realy if the 32 was like a 120 GB i can see wy it be like a hundred dallers but shity if he limit on the vita is jus 32 since the ram like 512 i seen cheap android with like two GB ram multy touch screen but he cpu is good for a mobile cpu but every one have likethe four core thingn its mainly vitural n micro processers i be like put two laptop core slots n like steam box graphics a n like windows 7 starter n like the ita os like pstree n outher os jus they can be more like pc in background n play games.. but they jus made a mobile upgrsde to the psp but they game n piracy..

      • gunblade says:

        i think most mobile now days try to be thin n lite so battery r usual smaller litter but then u use more enerygy saving parts.

      • gunblade says:

        sony should have had better speckers to sum beats audio or atleast a small subwoofer ..wow prety shity but like a 7.1 surrond sound be prety mean in mobile. but then the vita has bluetooth.

    Nintendo will fall and Sony will learn…one day…

  3. annon says:

    LOl

    sony is too stupid, they WILL NEVER learn anything

    for ex.
    everyone says “you can listen to music while you are playing”

    no it s not true….and it has 512Mb of ram
    I CAN DO IT WITH MY PSP WITH 32mb OF RAM!!

  4. Germain says:

    I am thinking on update my Vita , i have it on 1.81 with the exploit , but this is so boring… cant play online or see what’s new on the store

    • gunblade says:

      if u have 1.81 try using xli.nk dont no if it works but i guess u can play monster hunter but dont no if here much people onlinenow days didnot go on it n a while. think 1.81 has ark so maybe it works.

  5. laval says:

    this is so true there is nearly no advertisement for this awesome handheld, the games are ok but need more price drop yes, less money for the memory card

  6. Prank says:

    El error de vita, es que Sony lo haya sacado después del 3DS sin haberle puesto 3D al vita.
    El 3D es el peor problema :/

  7. mushimushi says:

    i aswell am disappointed… i rarely use the thing to play games. nowadays it’s just a youtube player, because there isn’t much more to do with it.. all the new games to be released are some extremely boring arcade games that you might try for 2 minutes and regret that you wasted your time on those. i noticed that the vita hasn’t got absolutely no legitemate rally games, only some very very cheesy arcade racers (yes, wipeout is not for me and even my buttcrack is more appealing than wrc). from the looks of it i’d say if the vita won’t breath soon enough, it will die. derp.

  8. psvita-freak says:

    The games are way to expensive for me. but i’m sure that if the vita got’s hacked, the vita will be sold more then before… yes, it’s an idea for sony to let it be hacked… if they want the cash… :)

  9. chazychazrox says:

    Choosing between 3G or Wifi was also my problem at first. Luckily, I bought the 3G/wifi system last year on europe.

    • Germain says:

      Lucky? are you serious????

      WIFI is the best deal for anyone , are you thinking to pay the 3g every month?

  10. Deamon says:

    Please forward this article directly to Sony and hope they improve an otherwise great mobile gaming system.

  11. lim says:

    the most weakness that i found is sony released few vita game cards

  12. StanSmith says:

    Some very good points made.
    But the same goes for the Wii U. Its also got no games and priced too high. Both have a owner that doesn’t care for it.
    Someone needs to kick both Sony and Nintendo in the ass and make them stop their bullshit and start helping everyone out by;
    1, dropping the price to make it easier to afford.
    2, get game devs to actually make and release games for it.

    How will the console last if game devs dont make games for it? If there are no games people wont buy the system.
    OR if they want to stick with the crap ways they have now then they have no choice but to ignore the hackers who release mod chips and other hacks for backups to run. Thats another way to sell systems.

    Piracy does NOT hurt sales. It helps it. Does the PSP still sell to this day? YES. Has it had piracy all its life? YES. Has piracy hurt sames of the PSP? NO.

    SO if they arn’t going to fix it themselves here are 2 points to help the hackers.
    1, leave them alone, dont sue them.
    2, leave the exploits open, dont patch the holes that make these exploits work.

    There are 2 ways to go, the legal way or the not so legal way. Its up to them now.

    • TStrauss says:

      You’re talking about two different things under the same label. Hacking =/ piracy.

      Hacking is enabling unsigned code to run on a device. This enables homebrew (a good thing) and usually enable piracy (a bad thing).

      Piracy does hurt sales. I’ve heard all the facile arguments before, so spare me. If you can get the game for free, most people won’t be troubled to buy it. Piracy figures and trends are troubling, and Sony would be foolish.

      Homebrew, on the other hand, opens a device up to some really cool homemade software. XBMC was originally homebrew for the Xbox. Wololo’s Wagic is homebrew. Cave Story started out as homebrew.

      The problem for Sony is, if they leave the door open for homebrew, piracy always rides its coat tails. So the smart business move for Sony is to kill all hacking. It sucks for homebrew enthusiasts like me, but pirates ruin it for everyone. The PS mobile thing was probably Sony’s attempt to placate homebrew without compromising security. I doubt it will placate anyone in the homebrew scene, but it’s a start.

      • VoDkAvi says:

        Very true. But regarding piracy, when they take a game off the store because of licensing issues it’s BS that I missed out. I wouldn’t mind paying for it but if you dont give me the option piracy becomes justified which wouldn’t hurt any sales because its not even on the store for me to purchase.

        They say it’s about sales but the PSP did amazing….. they really just want to try to monopolize things. Its like justifying linking games to your account to stop used game sales. I can see why they’re mad that it “hurts sales” but i would love to buy certain games direct from sonys store but they dont offer it….my only option is to pirate..its ridiculous to think im going to buy a PS1 and go through a bunch of trouble and put money in peoples hand through amazon and ebay (not sony) when they couldve made $250 from me buying a vita cuz it just made my life easier

  13. prince dess says:

    in all relevance the vita is a great console and like anything its gonna take work to overcome obstacles ive owned mine since launch got loads of psp games on it bought a few game cards and i love it people just dont give it time . look at the ps1 for example it was a “waste” of money at first but sony is wise and knows the.consumer well just wait for holiday season this year .

  14. Hellinferno says:

    If sony dont work with great companies like Snk and sega vita will be dead sooner or later.Snk are making games for IOS and cellphones,that sucks,some of the creators of Kof said that it will be interesting to release the game on vita but i guess sony let that pass away.Incredible games like Metal slug,king of fighters,castlevania,sonic,bloody roar,tekken,rage of the dragons,power instinct matrimelee-matsuri,GOD OF WAR,skullmonkeys,gran turismo,crash,spiro,medievil,kingdom hearts,dragon ball,naruto,fairy tail,fatal frame with motion camera it will be amazing, and many others are not present on thee vita so that’s why is going down.

  15. michael says:

    to annon,doyoueven

  16. michael says:

    to annon, do you even have a vita ? as playing cod just now and playing my music

  17. Anon says:

    PS Vita has around 100 games (US).
    I don’t really think 1 game every ~4.6 days(US) is that bad.

  18. Pirate says:

    the wrong with sony is they released ps vita then after one year, they announce PS4?? so the sale of ps vita would go down, because not anyone is a rich person that can buy the 2 consoles together, some people saving their money for PS4, they forget the ps vita and wait for the ps4…
    that’s not a good plan from them…. -_-

  19. jeebs says:

    I wont be surprised if Vita will sink so badly, that SONY will give people a hint on how to truly hack it. (No PSP emulator crap)

    The follow up will be :

    - popularity increased by 1000% followed by sales
    - new emulators and cool apps will start to show (taking advantaged of Vita powerful hardware)
    - torrents will be flooded by vita games
    - since it will be unlocked, the memory cards will surely be replaced by chinese cheap ones. But still good enough.Actually dont even be surprised if one day you will see an SSD drive hooked up to a fully hacked Vita.
    - and lastly people will still buy great games. Whoever says piracy will totally kill Vita, then answer me, why Gran Turismo sold 3.86million units on that fully hacked device called PSP?!?!?

    PC games dont sell that good ffs. We need CFW!

  20. Aaa says:

    Vita problem….

    First problem, exemple : photos…No folders, the OS is very closed…. In resume…there no one simple past and copy (PC)…as psp1

    …. Second problem

    NO GAMES in deep…
    no, resent evil, gran turismo, snk, and many others …. Get the PS1 or PS2 …there many games…

    Metal gear is great, but is only one port of PS2….

    …. Gran turismo and resident evil, as others ….. Sony need to learn that ” is the more important ” yes sony you are great but…. No games no win…

    Gran turismo 5 is great, but forza 4 is amazing too, and of corse i will buy the new Xbox720 we will have forza 5 ….in a little time….

    New playstation 4 …yes is great, but I don’t think to buy it…
    ….gran turismo 6 or 7…..yeah… In next 3 or 4 years…..

    The problem for Sony is ….games ….

    We can see the Nintendo …
    I have both, the Nintendo and the psvita ….
    Well psvita is very better, hardware, screen …and etc…

    BUT, I have 4x time more games than psvita ;( ….

    Normally I use the psvita only for movies…because the iPhone screen is small….but if I buy one galaxy S4 …. Is preety sure that I will leave the psvita in the box of my desk ……

    The psvita need GAMES and one OPEN system …( as android )

  21. VoDkAvi says:

    Vita, and even the 3DS are phenomenal pieces of hardware. Hacking is a HUGE benefit. ITS NOT ALWAYS ABOUT PIRACY. I wouldnt mind paying a measly $5 for a classic game but due to licenses and a whole bunch of other bullshi+ Sony doesnt give me the option to. So how are you losing out on money if its not even in the PS store to make profit in the first place. Plus with hacking I’d be able to play Nintendo games on a Sony device, which legally would never happen. And thats still not even taking money from Nintendo because even they dont have games you want on the online store.

    At this point in time you would think hacking devices would be easier but yet I find myself looking for a PSP 1000 to mod which would end up putting money in someones hand off amazon and not in Sonys. They need to realize shi+ like this and stop being tards. Think about the gamers and your profits will come.

  22. VoDkAvi says:

    Sony can’t stop hacking throughout all devices nore are they monopolizing any market. Therefore I don’t have to buy a PS Vita. If you want to lock it down FINE. Is Sony not aware that people will still hack something else or buy something like an android gaming tablet or those dingoo handhelds to do things you wont allow us to do on a Vita? IThey actually would make more money selling the $250 Vita instead of worrying about the $40 crap games they’re trying to protect. I would count every Dingoo or android gaming tablet as a loss for the Vita. Those are where your losses count, not piracy.

  23. skpg says:

    I really don’t give a shit about Sony at this point. If the Vita is fully hacked and modded, I will play all the pirated games I want, same thing goes for the 3DS. Besides the Vita being fully hacked will only bring more notoriety for the Vita, which will boost sales.

    I would like to play some snes and genesis games on the Vita though.

  24. steve says:

    hey sony i spend over 250$ for a vita. lets go make some game!! where is skyrim mass effect gta turismo helloooo anybody work in sony for making games. a lack of all. game are to expensive for a really crap. come on hurry up

  25. ramen says:

    I was seriously considering buying a vita but in all honestly there are no games for a lot of core gamers.
    We have played persona 4 to its death on ps2 and a straight port of fifa 11 console version just meh. What elst teh vita has got? Well let’s see, an uncharted and a barely functional assassin’s creed. Step up the game Sony.

  26. Kyu says:

    Good thing that I plan to get Jak trilogy and disgaea 3 (I only got 3 on ps2 and I have not rushed to buy Disgaea,foolishly waiting for a sale or sth lol)

  27. tmulaku says:

    i have just bought a vita and to be honest, was a little bit worried when the retailer ler told me that he had no games with him in store. now i have to SEARCH for them myself.

  28. sander says:

    GPU power is 4times , 7.2Gflops. not only 7.2Ggflops alone. GFLOPS(@ 200 MHz,per core): 7.2

  29. Truth says:

    HAHAHA, LOL. Vita is IRRELEVANT and DEAD! Sony as a company is dying fast now as they have been goofing off since the beginning of the decade. Too little too late!
