So firstly I am not starting this as an argumentative topic I just really want to find out about the Vita. See I have got PS+ and am looking into whether or not a vita is worth it, gravity rush, uncharted and wipeout (soon) are free on it and although I have the ps2 version of persona 4 I haven't got through much of it and am thinking I would get through it quicker on vita.
So guys do you think the vita good? what good games are on it? Is there many promasing games scheduled for the future on it? oh and whats the battery life like on it?
Price shmice. Just get the WiFi only version. I bought the 3G model, and haven't used the 3G once. Only the WiFi. So I kind of regret getting that SKU, but you're getting a solid piece of hardware either way. Plus, that OLED screen is ridiculous.
Persona 4 is better than I can currently succinctly explain without devolving into hyperbole and the Vita version of the game is far and away the better version. That alone can bring you 50-80 hours of content.
Gravity Rush was my GotY for 2012. It's really good.
I haven't even had time to play half the games I've gotten through PS+ yet (namely Uncharted and Jet Set).
The 2013 release schedule for the Vita is pretty up in the air, with only a few probably-going-to-be-awesome games like Tearaway and Soul Sacrifice currently slated, but there should be more announcements as the year goes on and events happen. Plus, there's a year to catch up on. Additionally, PS1 and PSP games you might've missed.
Battery life is good. Better than my phone and 3DS.
well I have taken the plunge I managed to sell my Xbox 360 slim and get a PS Vita 2nd Hand (Brilliant Condition as new basically) it worked out that it was basically a straight swap, now I just have to get the memory card and considering PS plus I have to get the 32gb one which is mega expensive but really looking forward to it. Oh and the screen wow just wow
You may want to pop into Grainger Games (since you live in the UK), I got a pre-owned 32gb card for £30. You made the right choice, with psn+ it's more than worth having a Vita, plus there are a ton of enjoyable games imo. I have been playing Silent Hill Book of Memories, it's entirely different from any other silent hill game and has more of a simplified torchlight feel.
The lowest I've seen 32gbs drop is $70 on Amazon (and I'm regretting not snagging one), so that's quite a deal. I'm still rocking the free 4gb that came with mine and haven't even had to delete anything, but all my downloadable titles are on the smaller side.
