Should I buy a Vita Or a PSP?

#1GameFinisher777Posted 3/17/2013 7:57:50 PM
I am looking at buying a handheld Sony game system, and I would love to have some of the new Vita games (Assassin's Creed 3 Liberation to name one), but I would also love a lot of PSP games, or PS1 classics. Can the Vita download the first 3 Crashes and Spyros from the PS1, or will those games be only on the PSP, and how about the Playstation exclusive Castlevania games? How is the browser? I know it doesn't have flash, but do they have some kind of alternate solution? I know that's a lot of questions, but I would like to know, and Google is flooded by 2012 news articles so I can't find any current news about the Vita.

Can you live without Kingdom Hearts, Dragon Ball Z, and Crisis Core? Definitely Vita.

If not, you can try getting both (PSP starts at like 50 bucks these days) and get a smaller memory card.

1. No Crash or Spyro for Vita

2. PSP browser is garbage. Vita browser is tolerable

3. Castlevania PS1 game downloads on Both. I think a PS3 transfer is required to play the PSP game on Vita.

4. Not every PS1 game is downloadable on PSV. Some require a PS3 transfer. Same with PSP. PSN is also lacking some popular PSP games (KH Birth By Sleep, FFVII Crisis Core, etc)

I guess based on what you said, I'd recommend PSP

I would stick with a PSP. With the homebrew scene and much cheaper memory, it's a far better bang for your buck. The Vita will see a price drop soon, as it continues to struggle stateside. I would at least wait until that happens if you go with the Vita. I'm not positive on those Crash games, but I know that not all PSOne games are playable on the Vita. The market is much bigger for the PSP, especially once you bring in emulation.

PSN really does lack some important PSP games. I didn't realize until recently that it doesn't have Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth on there...

PSP + uber mature custom firmware + 64 GB card = monster.
(x2 32 GB micro SD)

PSV + exploit = baby monster
PSV official = OK

X = X (subjective)

Most Vita owners have nothing to keep them interested so they resort to playing PSP games, may as well not delude yourself and just get a PSP. You should be able to find a used one in great condition for much less than the cost of a Vita. Everyone suggests a PSP 3000 model although I prefer the 2000. Just don't get the 1000.

Did I say that, or just think it? Was I talking? Did they hear me??
