    Good article from IGN there. I love my Vita but I use it mostly to play old psp games and ps1 games. Have to disagree slightly though that it has quality software, sure it has some must have titles. Persona 4 Golden springs to mind inparticular but most games are available on the ps3 or seem to be watered down versions of there ps3 counterparts

    I feel it's unfortunate cir***stances for the Vita. It's such a well designed and powerful handlheld that holds a lot of potential, but besides Persona 4 there's really nothing there to justify the money.

    I have 21 good reasons sitting on my shelf to own a vita. With a fozen more games I haven't bought yet or aren't out yet. Great piece of hardware... just a shame how Sony have handled it. They need to throw money at Capcom for a megaman game and throw money at square for a FF title... plz.

    I agree, a FF game specifically for the Vita would be awesome!

    It's true that the Vita deserves much more credit then it actually gets, I just really hope they don't decide to pull the plug on it because if they can just stick with it and release some more games like tearaway and killzone mercenaries then it will become much more popular than it is!

    Also a great idea to include it as remote play too, main reason for me to buy one!

    Hell, if they just funded localizing some of the games that are so popular in Japan that would be something. That and advertise some steam-like sales on the HUGE backlog of PSP/PSOne games available for download that play great on the Vita.....again, it is something. Right now it seems Sony is counting on remote play for PS4 to be the main draw. I don't see that happening in a major way. They have got to show some intrinsic value to the Vita as a stand-alone device.....not as a $200 add-on for the PS4.

    Oh.....and do something about the price of memory cards.....ffs.

    Man, I feel like I'm the only person who owns a Vita that doesn't give a god damn about Persona. Everyone else seems to love these games, but I can't stand them.

    Mercenary, LBP, Thieves in Time, and Sony Smash have been the ones to justify my purchase. Gravity Rush and others are just pudding.

    But Persona, Wipeout, that Monster-Hunter looking crap coming out from SE--Freedom Wars, I think--I'm utterly indifferent to those guys, and they seem to get all the love.

    It's a shame, the PSP this far into it's life had so many amazing games.

    Didn't they already pull the plug by announcing the non-handheld version that is the PS Vita TV which, by the way, is selling less and less each week in Japan? Maybe it'll do better in the west, but still...

    This is where I don't understand Sony - the money they could be throwing at third-party developers like Rockstar Games or Square Enix is instead being used to fund a new piece of hardware and when they talk about the PS Vita now, it's to say the handheld is a companion device for their newest console, the PS4.

    And would it be so bad if they were to call it the PSP2? Calling it the Vita makes it pretty apparent that what could be a successor to the PSP gives life to other devices rather than itself. I know about more games releasing for the Wii U next year whereas nothing big comes to mind for the PS Vita next year or beyond. Okay, there's Gravity Rush 2 but the number of titles still pale in comparison.

    I loved the **** out of my Vita the first year I had it. Now it is mainly used for remote play on the PS4. I picked up Tearaway the other day though, seems to be a solid game. But I am bothered by the fact that there is no new NBA, NHL, Madden, COD, or AC games out for it.

    It had it's AAA million seller within a few months (GTA), which is probably why it was far ahead than what Vita is now.

    I agree with everything, except the Vita TV part is only true for the West, which is who it was created for in the first place IMO, Japan wants handhelds, the majority of gamers in the West don't (they would, if Sony actually got their **** together and released more games for it), so Sony is pretty much offering a TV plug-n-play alternative for Vita cartridges. They wouldn't have to had they just made a TV port in the Vita in the first place like the PSP had.
