Nintendo fans , what stops you buying a Vita ?

#31DoramiPosted 1/16/2013 1:40:03 AM
It's mainly the memory card. It's like looking at SSD prices, except with the Vita memory card, I don't expect the price to drop with time because it's proprietary--much like how the MS Pro Duo remained several times as expensive as sdhc/microsdhc despite having poorer performance.

I probably would've gotten a Vita had it used microsd cards, even though to this date I would've just owned Gravity Rush and P4G as far as Vita game goes (though I'd have PSP and PS1 titles as well, but I can play those on a PSP 3000).

How many games does it take you to like before you buy a console ? For me if I like the game enough, it's only 1 that's why I lashed out and bought my first ever hand held console.


My problem isn't that I like no game on Vita. It's just that the decent games are almost a year old and there hasn't been much to play, other than short games, while waiting for better games (not counting ports).


Have you played Strangers Wrath yet ? I hear that's a very good game and once I got more time I'm going to buy it. I hear Persona 4 is good, but not much of a RPG fan. If you like RPG's it's probably a definite buy.

Next good game I want to get is Soul Sacrifice if it ever gets a release over here.


I've played and still own the originals of every vita port. So I don't play ports on vita.

I guess I count as a Nintendo fan because I still enjoy Mario, Zelda, Smash, etc. (though I own systems from every company and enjoy them).

For me, it's not nosystemsellers. FFXHD, P4G, AC:L are all system sellers...that I've either already played or have access to a better version of. If I compare Vita's lineup to any other system it has, by far, the least ORIGINAL games I want. So it's not that I think the Vita is bad (double sticks are great) it's just I'd rather invest in NEW Fire Emblem and Rune Factory games than already-played Persona or FF games.

Even games like Mario Kart and Smash Bros. are better than their Sony versions.

I own the Vita and hate it, not a Nintendo fan either, just really disappointed with it since launch.

I've been on this board for a while and your always bashing the Vita. Why would someone keep something if they hate it that much.


Because he's a troll. He admits to hating the vita but still spends all day on the vita board trolling it. He's pathetic.

There are things I don't like but I don't go on their boards to troll them.


you admit to hating the Wii U and not owning one, yet sit on the Wii U board trolling, if you're not here defending the Vita. So what are you?


I don't hate the WiiU and I don't troll the WiiU board. I have a WiiU hence the Nintendo network if that has been in my sig since early December. I have posted the odd negative story which is news but haven't gone around saying I hate the WiiU. Only yesterday I read an article saying that injustice wasn't coming to WiiU. Eurogamer made the mistake but trolls like you said it was my fault. I did the honourable thing and closed the topic once eurogamer admitted they were wrong. In fact I've been fighting the trolls on there (including you) and helping WiiU fans. I did quite a few topics on helping people sort out their surround sound problems as you need an amp capable of decoding LPCM over hdmi.

Looks like you are the fool.

I didn't ignore the websites others mentioned I just didn't revisit the topic until I got an email from someone asking me to close the topic (which I did). I didn't write the news I just shared it. It was just a bad story on eurogamers part.
