The problem now is "Vita has no Vita games!" because all we are getting is 3DS/PS3 ports, but at least the system is picking up.
What does it mean if the PS Button glows blue?

don't worry tc. vita is still doomed and it has enough nails in it's coffin to make a 2x4 blush.

The Vita has a nice selection of games currently. Sales wise it's still in a very precarious situation. The Vita 2000/Slim just released in Japan and sold 60k units. While that's a nice amount, the most important thing is that the Vita has sustainable sales. Unfortunately, this is a recurring issue where sales temporarily increase and return to low levels very quickly.


Pretty much on point.

Well, here's another new Vita owner. I just ordered a bundle with the Mega Pack that includes LBP.

Maybe, just maybe, we're finally reaching some critical mass that would push users to adopt a Vita. For me, it was a combination of several factors that got me to buy a Vita.

One: the price drops on the system and memory. The savings compared to buying six months ago means you can buy at least one or two games with it.

Two: the bundles. Most people like a good deal, me included. A pack with 10 games is an attractive option. It basically ends up costing the same as just buying the console, but you get some games to get you going.

Three: there are some great games out, and the ones that were decent are now all cheap to buy. Especially if you're buying second hand games.

Four: the infrastructure and amount of content on PSN has grown since the release.

Five: there's nothing coming out for old PSP's right now. It's a dead system if you want to buy physical media.

All this combined means people like me - the ones with old UMD PSP's and a wait-and-see-attitude - are finally moving over to the new system.

We'll see if there's a sales bump come december.

Killzone is brilliant but with ps4 and killzone shadow fall (and the ridiculous size of the patch) I decided not to buy it until next year.

Vita still a brilliant console though. Wipeout forever!!
