  3. Should I sell my Vita for a Vita TV?
1 year ago#1
My Vita never leaves the house anyways, should I just sell it for $150 to a friend and buy the Vita TV for whatever it may cost on Black Friday? I only own Persona 4 Golden and Danganronpa and all I'm really planning on buying in the future are the other 2 Danganronpa games, P4 Dancing, and Digimon (if localized). Maybe Senran Kagura...

No.

I own a Vita TV and it's no substitute for the Vita. Only a small collection of the Vita's titles are actually compatible with it.

Oh really? Why can't it be a substitute for it, are the games not that great looking on it?

I think he answered your question. Not all Vita games are compatible.

I'd do some more research, if I was you. See what games you want to play and if they're Vita TV compatible. Go from there

Overall best goes to Persona 4. That game taught me how to feel. I've never felt so close to video game characters in my life.-Mcnugget2256

It's not that the games aren't great looking on it. They look fine.
It's just as I said: The list of compatible games is very small.

If the games use any of the Vita's special features, you have to wait for the developer to update it with Vita TV support. Depending on the games, that may or may not happen. Sony hasn't even done it for most of their first party titles.

You will unable to play over half of the Vita's library.

Well like I said, I really only got the Vita for P4G, Danganronpa series, and Digimon and as far as I'm aware, the first 2 are Vita TV compatible...
Nothing else interests me really. I'm 99% sure that Senran Kagura will be Vita TV compatible, as well as Tales of Hearts.

Sounds like you're already leaning towards selling it. Only you know your own gaming habits, so make a choice and go with it. :)

Sounds like TC has already made his mind up and won't be swayed by people explaining why buying a Vita TV is a really bad idea.

Tales of Hearts R is not compatible with Vita TV.

Only 17% of the games actually work: http://goo.gl/S9ZWs7

DLC, online passes and the rise of casual budget gaming have ruined the video game industry.

Anything with touch controls won't work. I'd personally just keep the Vita.

If you're still interested in vita games, keep the vita.

If you're over the vita but think the ps4 functionality is worth it, sell the vita.


But it seems like you still want to play vita games. Hang onto it cause most of the games you want probably won't be compatible.

I plan on getting vita TV purely for the remote play functionality.

I'd like to get an XB1, too, but I think my fiance might be upset if I came home with ANOTHER system.
