I wonder why I bought a product that Sony didn't give a **** about.
Might end up getting one, if the game library shows more promise in the somewhat near future. For now though my money will be tied up in a PS4, the last few PS3 games I'll probably get and a whole mess of WiiU games.

I think support is going to increase with the release of the ps4. People will buy a vita to go along with the ps4 due to remote play. The user base will increase and then so will the software.
As for now why not get some psp titles for it, or even some psone classics? Monster hunter and dissidia are great games to try out!
I hope that you can be patient and are able to get your money's worth in the long run!
Stop blaming Sony. It's the masses who dictate what happens. Sony is backing the system. The can't demand a gta or ff though. The studios who worked on Psp and Ds games moved to mobile. The big studios have large projects they're working on. Games go where the $ is. With nearly 2 years of Internet trash talk, the "vita has no games" mindset is just that set.
The web must want it to be a success ft it to be so

The Vita is slowly but surely getting better, and positioning itself in the market.
I remember when I saw that Monster Hunter Ultimate was heading towards 3DS, and MH4 to boot, I physically cringed, fearing the consequences for the Vita. Monster Hunter sold literally millions of PSPs, creating an install base large enough that basically everybody jumped in and created games for it. That's why we got games like Grand Theft Auto, God of War, Valkyria Chronicles, and one of the best Metal Gear game in years, in spite of the machine being hacked. The situation of the Vita is quite different. It has not found its killer app yet, the kind of game you come back to again and again and again, and which production values amaze you every time.
And yet the future does look rather hopeful. This year in particular, in the history of the Vita, will mean quite a lot. I don't know why people look down on ps4 Remote Play. I know we would all like the big names to come to the Vita, and some powerful exclusives, but if I can play ps4 games on my Vita without lag, I'd be more than happy! It can only add value to the device. Remote Play was poorly implemented on ps3, with Sony basically not supporting it, and people only able to use it with hacked ps3s, and even then with lag I think. But they took measures for ps4 remote play, making it basically mandatory to each game developer. They are supporting it, in words at least. We'll all see how it plays out.
Tearaway, Killzone Mercenary, Dragon's Crown, Final Fantasy X HD, and some very good indie games. These games will boost Vita sales, especially KZ in the west, where FPS are a strong genre.
With these two elements combined, Remote Play and a strong game lineup for 2013, we can hope we'll finally get our killer app someday. In its current state, the Vita simply cannot compete with the 3ds, although it is BY FAR technologically superior. Too many big names on the other side. Sony should actually drop the price in the West too, and invest a good load of money into some killer app game, which people would actually buy the Vita for.
The Vita has huge technological potential. Best portable game system I've ever owned hardware wise. It would be just too bad if it didn't rise to its potential. Bring it on Sony!
Also, they should have made PS2 emulation possible on it, and sold us PS2 classics on the store, just like on ps3. Another wasted potential of this incredible machine.
lmao. Yes, poor little victim Sony only tried to gouge the living hell out of its userbase with the most scammy memory card pricing known to mankind! It's not their fault this backfired horribly, nobody bought a Vita, and now nobody wants to develop games for a nonexistent fanbase. Leave Sony alone! </britney fan>
It's true tbh

If my vita would break i don't know if i would even buy new one immediately. I would probably wait for the priced drop and even still i might not buy it again. I mean when ps4 is coming out i won't focuse on anything except it for long time. Whatever people think about vita now they might care even less about it when ps4/one comes out.
Only reasons to buy it again would be Persona 4 golden and FFx/X2, ps1 classics + few other games. If it gets better model at some point with much improved analogs and shoulder buttons then i would surely buy it again so that i could actually enjoy MHFU, Gods eater burst/2, ninja gaiden etc. As it is its not comfortable for me so i rely only on rpg's.
So Sony gave us two games. One is a legitimately good games (Gravity Rush) which Sony has not built upon. Here we are a year later and we only have a handful of 3D games. The other is a *yawn* hunter *yawn* game which was okay, but not even close to a system seller.
If this is what you call support, I would hate to see what Sony would do if they really wanted to ignore the Vita.
