Summary: Sadly the Vita has become an epic failure. The games has been more miss than good. True Little Big Planet was great it did nothing in improving sales. It seems that all hope now rests with Assassin Creed: Liberation cause of the fears of Call Of Duty: Declassified. As for sports they also bombed with Madden 13 with outdated stats and Madden 12 graphics and no cross play with the PS3.
Summary: This console is trash. It has quite a few non-video game features that children without cell phones might appreciate, but I'd you have a smartphone, stick with it. Angry Birds is a better game than the junk they have available for the vita. The games load extremely slow. The remote play function that playstation seems to be trying to use as advertisement for this product is unheard of. None of my current ps3 games are compatible with remote play.
Excerpt: There is no reason to ever buy a vita. The first reason is money. Its a death trap for your wallet. It comes with no internal memory and the SD cards are only made by sony and are way over priced. If you get the 3g version then you have to spend 30 bucks a month to go online when there is no wi-fi, but the data is so limited it would not last most gammers a day. Only 250mb for 30 bucks.
Excerpt: As a handheld console, it plays games very well, but it's price is too high, it has absolutely no internal memory forcing you to buy a way overpriced memory card. Furthermore, the battery life is way too low and the handheld needs more comfort to hold the handheld device better. The battery power is the worst problem. A portable device needs battery power. Short battery life is unacceptable.
Pros: Dual Analog Sticks...finally. Gorgeous Screen and Game Graphics.
Cons: Proprietary Sony Memory, Limited Battery Life, EXPENSIVE, Gimmicky technology = Forced Gameplay, Launch titles are ports already available on PS3. 10 years after PSP + other mobile gaming options = Niche Market? NO UMD UPGRADE PATH FOR PSP OWNERS!!!
Summary: Whilst I was a huge fan of the original PSP, the newest installment in Sony's line of portable gaming products falls short of its revolutionary predecessor. I bought the system around Christmas 2012 which cost around £220 including two games and a case which I bought separately (wifi model with 4gb memory card). In hindsight I should have just bought a PS3 as for £140 i could have picked up a 12 gb standard console but oh well... retrospect is a wonderful thing!
Pros: Robust product, Sony Network Store has good selection and nostalgia factor
Cons: Expensive, not revolutionary, poor choice of games
