    Unhappy SO, I'm selling my Vita =(

    So today I went into EB Games (The Canadian 'GameStop') and asked how much I'd get if I traded in my 3g/WiFi PlayStation Vita - 140$. Not bad considering I got mine for 200$. Now, I will re-buy one when the price drops, more games are available and the white one is more available (Yes I am a console color nazi, hehe.) Also going to trade in 2 games so I can get a headset for my PS3.

    Anyone else have thoughts of selling their Vitas? Even just for the time being? Don't get me wrong, I love my Vita, but there are almost no games out right now and the price point is a little steep ($250? I can get a PS3 for $50 more, or a Wii U for $100 more) Anyways, that's just my two cents. What do you guys thinks?

    Why didn't you look at the lineup before buying one? That's why I haven't got one yet. And yeah I want a white or LE Vita when I get one.

    I dont get it, you have a Vita.. and you plan to sell it for a headset due to lack of games.. but your going to rebuy one later if (Who says they will go that low in a few years) the price drops? Why not keep it and buy a headset, and save time and money?

    EDIT: Will note the only part that doesnt make sense is the whole rebuy it later thing. If you didnt like the vita and had no plans to buy another I think you'd be making a good call.

    I agree completely with this. Even if the color really matters to you, in this economy this idea of yours seems like a waste of money both colors of Vita will do the same thing lol. You already bought it I say keep it, then when the games start to come you'll already have one.

    P.S I had a launch 3g Vita that was stolen while I was in college dorms =( smh.(Can't have anything these days) I plan on buying a new one, I heard if they have 2 sku's for PS4 the higher price one may include a Vita, so i'm actually hoping for that. If not I'll probably get another Vita in the summer.

    If you didn't like the game line up, then sure, sell it

    Yet with ps+ combo vita is the first console that is free So there is no need to sell for me. oh and read this : http://www.psu.com/a018844/Sony-conf...games-for-2013

    God, no. Never. =/

    When I was younger, I sold my Game Boy Advance SP, some games for it (Metroid Fusion, Dragon Warrior I & II, Dragon Warrior III, Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age) as well as some PS2 games.

    I will never make that mistake again. I'm not playing any new games on the PS Vita right now but I can certainly wait. Save your money.

    Wouldn't be without mine to be honest.
    I don't really get the no games statements that people make unless if there is only certain types of genres they like. There's also some crackers on the store that are dirt cheap.

    Also with the remote play feature announcement that every title will be playable with PS4 I really can't see the cost dropping much more if at all.

    100+ titles coming this year alone (personally can not wait for Killzone) I thought if anything, now is the time to own a Vita for those who have been on the fence from that start.

    Or, do people say the Vita has no games because they expect every title to be AAA?

    I say keep it, you only ever get robbed selling things second hand because the price never reaches close to the cost even if you bought it at a steal.
    Save a little and buy a cheapo headset, you don't need an expensive one at all.

    I use my Vita every single night. Never once thought of selling it. Earning trophies on the go and on the $#@!ter was one of my lifes goals.

    Unless you need the money, I wouldn't sell it. Especially if you're just going to end up buying it again. Just think, how long would it take you to save $140? Even if it's like 3 weeks.. it's not like any new Wii U games are going to come out then..

    I bought one launch week from ebgames had it until august last year, traded it for a iPhone4s. Don't get me wrong I had fun and even bought uncharted and MK for it and played the $#@! out of those games, but I was mad that sony essentially sold me a lie, I shouldve researched more because I was under the assumption that the Vita would remote play ALL PS3 games, even saw sony officials say this and anoounce it, First thing i did was remote play and Clicked Modern Warfare 3 and when it said "Content cannot be played" I wanted to just return it. I guess they decided to pull it last minute, but the thing that pissed me off that they literally just disabled it because people with hacked ps3's were running Battlefield 3 on their Vita's, now sonys saying it will remote play all ps4 games.... just redic. anyway its an amazing piece of technology with Dual Touchscreens & Camera's there is alot of untapped potential, Hopefully in time some good games will come out, I probably will buy one again in the future.

    I still haven't bought my PS Vita yet.

    Ugh, there's too much to play these days. I can't even think about getting a Vita right now lol.

    Never once thought about selling mine. Apart from $#@!ty remote play and not being able to play PS2 classics (lolol), it's everything I expected it to be tbh. With the amount of indie support it is now getting and apparently AC3: Lib and Ragnarok both being profitable ventures for their respective companies I expect the platform to get stronger and stronger - similar to the PS3 lifecycle. Not expecting that kind of software support and hardware sales at all, but you get what I mean!

    I am with TDBank though, there is literally too many games across PS3, 360 and Vita lol. I could easily live without mine as there's so many other avenues to play great games - but after owning one, I wouldn't want to

    I have a thing for white consoles, I want a white Vita. Which I will be buying.

    Anyways, for those who've been saying 'if you didn't like it, why re-buy it?' I DID like it, that's why I will re-buy it. Money's just tight right now and I wanted a headset..

    And to who said, 'Who cares about color?' I DO. I hate the typical black that PlayStation gives us. I waited 'til a white one was released in N.A. The black game consoles are just dust magnets, and I hate that.

    Fair enough. The White Vita is fricking amazing so I go for it. The red-y one they released alongside Soul Sacrifice is the best looking one so far imo

    I never sell anything if I buy them. I will never sell my VITA as I have lots of games on it to play and Iam a collector which like to have stuff. I would say you. You have made a mistake don't get me wrong and there was no need to sell your VITA.
