    Why are cell phones constantly compared to the NGP?...

    I always here these people going on about how cell phone games are apparently affected handhelds like the Vita. But the fact is that someone interested in handheld games are not exactly interested in cheap cell phone games. Not to say you can't like both, but the two are completely different experiences. So acting as if the two conflict each other or that they compete in the same market is pretty null and void. Any Vita owners seeing it this?

    Because a lot of people are too blind to see how great the system really is. It happened with the PS3, it got bashed almost to death by the media but you look at it now! Its right on the 360's ass and getting ready to overtake. Now if the media wasn't so bashful, I'm sure the PS3 would of beaten the 360 already.

    Sony/Sony gamers knows their in the game for the long term, people who work for the Media see everything as today, not tomorrow.

    Lol the media nowadays is just a load of bull$#@! with a bunch of idiots with neglible intelligence exercising their freedom of speech on a topic that has nothing to with and won't relate to anyone $#@!ing else anyway. I stick to forums for my news regarding topics like handheld systems or gaming in general.

    Maybe people realize they don't need such a dedicated gaming device to enjoy gaming on the go.... before decent cell phones came out, with decent experiences, the only mobile gaming experience was done on these portables. That's not so much the truth anymore.

    I agree with you Inzane. On the other hand, a portable device that does gaming, such as the Android/iPhone's is usually enough to satisfy any ordinary person's gaming needs/itch, on the bus, on the train or whatever, so I see where the comparisons are coming from

    It's a damn shame though how a lot of the PSVs pre launch discussions were literally about this. Almost as if it is incapable of offering the consumer any more than what a phone or tablet can, or as if that is not what people want (when clearly the sales of the 3DS show otherwise). It just has to be well priced and have that catalogue of games

    Dead Space looks good on a smartphone but the controlls are just awful imo.
    The necromorphs are much slower and weaker then usual just to adopt to your lack of control.
    The touchcontrol-sceme just can't handle all the different functions (statis, use, reload, aim, walk, heal, kinesis, melee etc. etc.).
    1pixel to much to the left or the right and i reload my weapon instead of opening the door
    Not to mention that advanced games also need alot of power/battery life.

    Don't get me wrong i also like to play games on my smartphone but only short 15minute bursts and simple games like AB or tower defense games.

    I said it before and i'll say it again, smartphones will not kill dedicated handhelds, it's not even the same market imo.

    Handheld's might kill smart phones tho lol Vita is almost a cell phone by itself,i wonder if it can also be a cell phone too at some point.I know it can be one with Skype and 3g but i was wondering also if it can use the card as a cell phone too...
    Good "night" my baby...i will always remember you.I love you.
