I've been wondering about getting a vita for a while now. I know it has persona on it, but what else worth playing does it have? Keep in mind I have been pretty much out of the loop.
Also the new digimon game looks really good but it's pretty unlikely to come to west if I understood correctly.
I have some ps+ games for it as I've been a member quite a while and I downloaded them as a precautions.
So help me out /v/. Is Vita worth a purchase? Can you point out some games worth playing on it?
Also other vita discussion I guess.
If you are a fan of 3D platformers you can play the original Ape Escape through Ape Escape on the Loose under PSP games.
Only 8 dollarinos and you can use both analog sticks when playing on a VIta.
I also enjoyed Ultimate MvC3 and Muramasa the Demon Blade. There are plenty of games you just gotta look for what interest you.
I wouldn't listen to the anime posters as the games they play are mediocre at best (aside from persona)
If you miss playing psp, ps1/ ps2 games as well as others then it's great. There are a lot of games I had missed out on playing in the ps1/ ps2 so the ports aren't bad at all for me.
>tfw playing suikoden in bed
I won't listen to anime haters or gaming journalists. They automatically rate anything anime as bad regardless of what is it (aside from persona).
Lots of great games are overlooked just because it has anime art.
The Netflix app is unusable last I tried.
Crunchyroll works fine ofc. Ads are almost unbearable though.
YouTube app had its support dropped. No idea what happened there or if it still works.
>I know it has persona on it, but what else worth playing does it have?
A bunch of stuff
Muramasa Rebirth, 2D beat-em-up/hack'n'slash action
Gravity Rush, 3D action adventure in an age where the genre is dead with best protagonist
Danganronpa, wacky thriller VN with problem solving. Must play if you dig Phoenix Wright
Virtue's Last Reward, VN and point & click mystery solving with branching storyline
Sly 4, you know the drill. Also on PS3, but the Vita version is excellent.
Soul Sacrifice Delta, slightly like Monster Hunter, but with excellent visual style and great atmosphere
These are my favorites, but there's also a bunch of straight up ports, various modern indie games like Axiom Verge and PS2 games like Ratchet & Clank and Metal Gear Solid 2 & 3.
Also, lurk wololo.net on weekends and you might get a chance to grab a PSP CFW or VHBL, allowing you to run PSP homebrew or even pirated games with CFW. It could be better since everything just runs in PSP mode but having emulators is always very nice.
One of the strong points of the Vita is that, between sales and PS+, you end up with a ridiculously varied library. More often I'll try things I wouldn't have bought at full price. I've got 104 games now, more than I've owned on any other system.

I hear people with Vita love their PS+ games, so I'd get one if I were you.
How much these consoles go for anyways right now? The memory cards bring the price up somewhat, but if console + memcard is all you need since you already have games through PS+, it would seem like a very nice deal.
Also, get 64GB right away and never look back. I ended up getting a 16GB but upgraded later, and that smaller card is just wasted money now. It's nice being able to put animus and stuff on the thing as well. The system supports H264 just like the PSP so just check http://wololo.net/2013/08/27/ps-vita-video-conversion-tutorial-with-subtitles-support/ to get a hang of how to convert videos for it the best way.
Pic related, only 540kbps and fast encoding gives a pretty good quality.
From the Vitagen threads, which would probably be a better place to ask than here with all the Vita hate on this board
It's a good thing you didn't say 'unwarranted'. The majority of games I see are weebshit as per usual.
Now, don't get me wrong, I love me sum' weebshit, but I'll take variety over fanservice any day.
The PSV isn't even good for piracy. PSX and even PSP games are buggy as fuck since there's no native/kernel exploit available and even for homebrews people have to jump though a shitload of hoops to get them working.
There are only so many 'must haves' on the handheld and this isn't 2005 anymore, a cellphone can do a better job when it comes to emulation. So what exactly is the Vita good for?
Not OP but I've been considering getting a vita for a bit as well. I almost got a good condition one and a 16 GB card for 120 us monies on eBay bit someone outbid me at the last second. I recently saw some new patent apparently for a new vita, should I wait on that or just keep looking for a cheap one on eBay?
I really wish you could use regular memory cards, Sony's prices are ducking criminal
No, Vitagen is no good.
Even with all the bullcrap it's filled with, /v/ still has more voice of reason than /vg/.
At least, that's what I want to think, but memeposters just keep taking vore more and more...
How glorious is this.
OP. Unless you can find it extremely cheap, I wouldn't recommend getting one. It has SOME good games, but you can get almost all of them on another platform. The only real exclusives for the system happen to be anime games, and if you're not extremely into anime, then the system will be completely lost on you. You can download ps1 games on there, but unless you're actually taking the vita on the go with you, it's not worth it.
>It has SOME good games, but you can get almost all of them on another platform
Yeah OP, buy a PS2, PS3, PS4 and a PC to play all the games you could play on a 60€ box you can hook up to your TV.
>PSX and even PSP games are buggy as fuck
This part isn't true at all. Where did you get this idea?
>There are only so many 'must haves' on the handheld and this isn't 2005 anymore, a cellphone can do a better job when it comes to emulation. So what exactly is the Vita good for?
I don't even try to deny that PSP and DS were better than 3DS and PSV, but c'mon, this is the issue of 8th generation, not Vita. Compared to PS4 and Xbone, hell, even PC games released in the same timeframe, both portable consoles provide excellent game libraries.
We haven't heard of any news regarding new revisions of the system, have we? Either way, a new one would be more expensive, so you probably shouldn't look that way if you want to save money.
Besides, both the 1k and 2k are good hardware-wise, so it's not like there's going to be some hardware upgrade that would be important.
Did you check Japanese stores for the memory cards? A 32GB in the west is way overpriced, but a 64GB from nipland might not cost much more, making it the better deal. They're still overpriced, but not exceedingly so.
Keep checking eBay, as you're more likely to find one that comes with the memory card.
>This part isn't true at all. Where did you get this idea?
Try running the official FFVII PSN release and see what happens.
>I don't even try to deny that PSP and DS were better than 3DS and PSV, but c'mon, this is the issue of 8th generation, not Vita.
That's somewhat valid considering even the 3DS is lagging behind, but the difference between the two is still massive.
I mean, back then there were a couple reasons to pick a PSP over a DS, but now? No.
>The only real exclusives for the system happen to be anime games, and if you're not extremely into anime, then the system will be completely lost on you.
As someone who got a Vita despite not being much into anime, this is untrue.
Where did this meme where people who don't spend hundreds of bucks each month on pantsu figurines can't enjoy games that have anime graphical style come from?
Makes no fucking sense, we all enjoyed our Final Fantasies back in the day too, there wasn't one guy screaming THIS IS TOO ANIME FOR ME even if they didn't like the game.
Bought my Vita about a month ago. First handheld since the GBA. I really like it, it's great for playing during commutes and in bed, battery life on the new slim version amazes me and I have already built up a decent 15 game library that I'm playing through.
It's been worth it for me, but I bought mine alongside a friend so we could play some stuff together. P4, Danganronpa, MGS and Everybody's Golf have probably been my most-played games. The PSP back-catalogue is decent, if a bit overpriced and not great looking upscaled. Nice to play PS1 games on the go too.
It's good, but sometimes the 'almost-a-ps3-but-not-quite' feeling is there when playing games that seem like they are the little brother to their lounge-room counterparts.
>Try running the official FFVII PSN release and see what happens.
Yeah, I have it, and is there a problem?
>That's somewhat valid considering even the 3DS is lagging behind, but the difference between the two is still massive.
>I mean, back then there were a couple reasons to pick a PSP over a DS, but now? No.
You're not really making any sense.
Are you being serious with this shilling sony ?
What's next ? Sony phone threads ? Sony laptop threads ? Sony TV threads?
Oh wait , they all have something in common with the vita ....
I bought a vita and that's how inner my GF on the train on the way to my daily commute . I had a vita ™ and this beautiful ASIAN™ Girl has a vita ™ too . We love first site because vita ™
Thank you sony . We get marri now
>Yeah, I have it, and is there a problem?
I meant a pirated one, obliviously. It sounds like shit thanks to the PEOPS plugin.
Lack of variety, PSV is the weeb machine. There's little of anything else. Even the 3DS is more diverse.
Do we know when Axiom Verge releases on Vita?
>how dare people post video game consoles on video game board
Also got a laugh out of this.
Is that a fucking emoji on 4chan?
I didn't even know that was possible.
There were no reasons to pick up a psp except the fact it was hacked. Also the ds was probably Nintendo best handheld but the 3ds is the worst handheld Nintendo ever released. There's nothing worth wild on the 3ds and all the titles based on past franchises like Kirby or sticker star are the worst in the series. No aliasing and a lower resolution than the n64
>I meant a pirated one, obliviously. It sounds like shit thanks to the PEOPS plugin.
3.18fags should just use the PS1 loader, not pops.
>PSV is the weeb machine.
This is my favorite meme.
>Even the 3DS is more diverse.
No. If you want to shill for Nintendo, make a new thread instead of trashing unrelated threads.

Pretty much every HD collection besides Jak & Daxter/God Of War runs great on it, and it also has a healthy selection of fightan, sports, and musou games going for it if you're the kind of person who wants to play them on the go.
...and it's still better than the PSV, that ought to say something.
I honestly don't see why'd anyone play indies on the Vita, but yeah.
It's not gonna be 3.18 forever.
The vast majority of Vita games are weeb while everything else is scarce. The 3DS IS more varied, even if only by a little margin and thanks to Nintendo's first party tittles.
Personally, I think they both suck and would rather pick up another DS or PSP, but between two evil always choose the lesser.
>Lack of variety, PSV is the weeb machine.
If you like western handheld gaming, Vita is your primary choice, next to smartphones I guess but who'd want that?
>Ratchet & Clank
>Jak & Daxter
>Need for Speed
>Binding of Isaac
>Oddworld Stranger's Wrath and Munch's Odyssee

Find a handheld with more robust western library.
Protip: you can't.
>I honestly don't see why'd anyone play indies on the Vita
Why not? Some of them are pretty good. I'd recommend Retro City Rampage. Also on 3ds. Shovel Knight, La-Mulana EX and Rogue Legacy are all pretty good as well.
Highly recommend Helldiver, pretty fun stuff. Crossbuy on ps platforms too.
Picked up Hotline Miami for 3€, that was pretty great. It did some time to take used to controlling it, but when I played the sequel on PC I didn't find it to control that much better.
Because they play better on a PC? Even a toaster.
You know damn well what weebshit means. MG Collection isn't weebshit. The problem with the Vita is that you basically listed every game available, including some shovelware and indie titles. There's little else. That's called scarcity, something the PSV is great at.
gr8 arguments m8 :^)
>The problem with the Vita is that you basically listed every game available, including some shovelware and indie titles.
No. Just because you're poorly aware of why those games are good doesn't make them shovelware.
Lurk more, play more games.
A lot of what you posted there, actually.
>Ratchet and Clank
Plus other western games like
>Burnout Legends and Dominator
>3 fucking GTA games
>God of War
Who said anything about ports?
That's the part which gets me laughing.
Yeah, this guy's got it. Though he's missing a couple things, I think.
like what about Deception IV/Nightmare Princess?
Or EDF2V2 instead of 2017?
If you like DRPGs, then I think Demon Gaze is a blast.
Thenn there's also Gravity Rush, VLR, Dragon's Crown, and hell, there's even still new PSP games getting released like Brandish, Class of Heroes 3, and Summon Night 5. And the upcoming library gets even better.
I can pretty much guarantee the Vita will have a good number of games you'll be into. You just have to be willing to branch out and take a look at things that aren't heavily advertised.
Are you autistic? I said myself that the PSP had more western support, but in general what it got was worse than the vita iterations.
You asked me for ones its known by, not what ones were good - and all of those franchises did well on the psp.
I think Persona 4 is bad because I can play it on my PS2, fat PS3 and my PC. This isn't about brand loyalty you ape, it's about having the gall to say that as if it was factual and not subjective that a game is good.
>I think Persona 4 is bad because I can play it on my PS2, fat PS3 and my PC. This isn't about brand loyalty you ape, it's about having the gall to say that as if it was factual and not subjective that a game is good.
That's not Golden.
Go on and ask Persona general if you don't believe me, but it's clearly better.
>I think Persona 4 is bad because I can play it on my PS2, fat PS3 and my PC.
That's some retarded logic there.
> This isn't about brand loyalty you ape, it's about having the gall to say that as if it was factual and not subjective that a game is good.
Sure it isn't. You're just shitting on every game on the vita because you hate sony.
I did word this poorly. I have been able to play it, is what I meant to say.
Unless it completely overhauls the game I don't think I'll like it. But that's beside the point.
What if I told you I liked Muramasa?
>Unless it completely overhauls the game I don't think I'll like it. But that's beside the point.
Well, that's just your opinion that most people disagree with, judging by the critical and user reception of the game.
This is something that people who don't own a vita and know nothing about the library say.
>it's all soulless shovelware
Nobody really takes you seriously when you say that shit. See, you'd have to actually play every game on it before you can just say it's all shovelware. Most people just take it as fanboy bullshit.
Only people who believe you are other delusional elitist hardcore nintendo fanboys who also shit out their mouths. You people lie so much they you start believing the lies that you shit out.
I'm a 3ds owner and even I don't believe it's all shovelware. Just stop. Find a better hobby instead of shitting on the vita. Go play some games instead.
Is dat a PC 98?
>Your opinions are invalid because otherwise I'd be talking bullshit
Right, of course. Why are vitafags so defensive?
Like I said, you can't objectively claim a game is good which is the impression that post gives.
There's plenty of stuff on that list with a bad score. Senran Kagura has a 67 metascore, which if you'd believe it means the game is trash. There are plenty of Persona haters on /v/ too.
Get a 3DS, it has absolutely no weeb trash on it and it has an actual diverse library of games on it.
It has the best of each genre on the 3DS.
Best shooter, best SRPG, best RPG, best adventure, best fighting games, best sports games, best racing, best platformers and more.
Vita has nothing but poor japanese weeb clones of the best games on the 3DS, it's just stupid how anyone could say it's any good at all.
>Get a 3DS
>it has absolutely no weeb trash on it
But the 3DS was panned early on due ot the lack of software at launch. It had to have a drastic price cut because of it.
>Emulating consoles whose content can easily be pirated on real hardware
>no weeb trash
>best fighting games
>best sports games
It's pretty great. If you're into JRPGs, Persona is just the obvious game.

>Need for Speed
>Soul Sacrifice Delta
>Danganronpa 1 and 2
>Sly Thieves in Time
The 2k model normally retails for $170, but check for deals where you get games or a memory card on top of that.
That screen is still pretty good even if it's no OLED, and the better battery life is obviously a bonus.
You bet it's a PC98.
Oh. Sorry to hear it. What games did you get for it, out of curiosity?
Gonna have to completely disagree on that one. I've had one since launch and it's just fizzled and died out for me.
Does 3DS even have shmups? There's the censored/ruined port of Summer Carnival '92 Recca, but I haven't seen anything else of note.
>best fighting games
I'm pretty sure every fighting game on 3DS is available with a better version on vita.
I used to think this, but the Vita has totally caught up and surpassed it. EO is one of my favorite series ever though.
This was true before Chirari came to Vita.
In general, vita also has more variety in games.
>it has an actual diverse library of games on it.
It doesn't even have any fps aside from kid icarus. Also one of the most horrible shooters I've ever played. Shitty control scheme for a shooter. And half that shit was on rails. I'm baffled by how nintenyearolds praise it as a great shooter. But I guess that's because it's the ONLY shooter it has.
Don't get a 3DS.
There's an emulator in works, looking to progress fine.
So it's not going to take that long until you can just emulate whatever games the 3DS has on PC, with better graphics and control anyways.
What games do you have for it?
>I used to think this, but the Vita has totally caught up and surpassed it.
What's the Vita's killer JRPG? I hope you're not talking about Persona 4.
I wonder why every PSV fanboy is so defensive. You don't see people using that kind of logic with any other platform, it's always the Vita.
Is it because the handheld is basically dead and even Sony doesn't seem to care for it anymore? Because this is obvious to anyone. They're just milking what's left of the fanbase.
>In general, vita also has more variety in games.
Is this delusion? Was it that bad back with the DS/PSP?
Somebody ought to make a comparison list between the two platforms. Of course, nobody cares that much since only Vitafags still seem to think their handheld has any chance.
Decided to leave a few things off, my list was already getting long as is. But yeah, the Vita's variety is really nice.
With the sheer volume of games that cater to so many underserved niche demographics in today's gaming market, the "best games on the system" really differ quite a lot from person-to-person.
They already have OoT up and running, and said to check it in a year or two.
It's not like there's anything interesting on the system in the meanwhile, unless you somehow didn't already play Pokemon in the last 20 years at least once.
>I wonder why every PSV fanboy is so defensive.
Anyone group would be that defensive if you attack them with so much lies and bullshit for a very long time.
That's how GG started.
No, he's absolutely right.
It's got ARPG, FPS, TPS, JRPG, platforming, beat-em-up, arcade, point and click adventure, visual novel, action adventure, 2D shooter, hunting, racing and then a bunch of smaller genres.
It offers the better variety when looking for portable consoles.
The fact alone that I can play EDF, then Deception IV, then Danganronpa, then Umihara Kawase, then Gravity Rush, then Technika Tune, then Atelier, then Ys, then fucking Jet Set Radio all on the same platform should be telling enough.
The DS is 11 years old, anon.
The DS was also a much simpler system with easy access to flashcarts and similar development tools which made it simpler to assess how the system worked internally.
PSP had it. Look up Star Soldier.
Damn, that's some nice backpedaling, son.
It's as I said, it offers the most in the genres I listed. "BUT THOSE DON'T COUNT BECAUSE JAPANESE GAMES" doesn't work here.
Not to mention there's plenty of western stuff.
Completely agree with this one. The only thing really available for America worth noting is Zanac x Zanac, which is fucking awesome.
I think horis would make more sense though. I'd love to see Gundemonium and Deathsmiles on the vita.
Instead of fucking garbage like Sine Mora.
Either you hate games or you didn't check out the 3DS's amazing library.
Pokemon X/Y, Pokemon ORAS, SMT4, EO4, Xenoblade, Bravelt default, Denpa men, Mario & Luigi, Persona Q
Super Mario 3D land, Cave story, Shovel Knight, DKCR 3D
Best adventure games
Zelda OoT, Majora's mask, Zelda link between worlds, Zero escape, Ace attorney
Best fighting games
Street fighter 4, DOA Ultimate, Tekken, Blazblue
Kid Icarus, Star fox 3D, Moon chronicles
Best puzzle games
Pushmo, crashmo, Layton
Best racing games
Mario kart 7, Outrun 3D, Ridge racer
Best life sims
Fantasy life, harvest moon, Animal crossing, tomodachi collection, Story of seasons
Best hunting games
MH3G, MH4U, Final fantasy explorers
Best sports games
Mario Tennis, Mario Golf, Inazuma eleven
Devil survivor, Devil survivor 2, Fire emblem awakening, STEAM
and there's more I have not listed like star fox 3D and smash bros.
The Vita has absolutely jack shit compared to the 3ds and doesnt have any games as good as the 3DS's in any genre. Also the fact that the Vita has nothing but weebshit, only the most fervent japanophile will have any interest in getting a 3DS to be perverts instead of playing real games.
Aren't those only fangames?
I'm just pointing out that it exists and as far as I know can be played.
I wish I still had the image of DoDonPachi tate'd on my PSP to post, it's fun as fuck.
That's also a pretty niche genre, something which has been pretty dead for a while.
The system definitely has the most variety out of any handheld.
I can go from 2D platforming to JRPGs to FPS any day on the system.
>The DS is 11 years old, anon.
So is /v/.
New here? Because as I said, I remember when they said the same about the DS.
We already have the game running, the system isn't very powerful, proper emulation is just a matter of time now.
Vita has nothing compared to these master pieces. Saved what you wrote for copy pasta reasons when uneducated drones try to pretend their dead handheld has a more diverse library than the 3DS.
There's a reason why it's killing the competition.
I have a 3DS. I love several games on it, like KIU, Etrian Odyssey IV, Space Harrier, Outrun, Galaxy Force, Soul Hackers, Code of Princess, and Rune Factory 4.
I think your list here is more indicative of the fact that you seem to have very limited knowledge about games if they're not super popular. And many of the games you listed here are either better on, or have better equivalents for Vita. You can't say the same about the Vita library.
I don't even have a 3DS but I've already played most of these.
The 3DS has absolutely jack shit good games, even the stuff you've listed here is full of ports, ports, shovelware.
I completely agree proper emulation is just a matter of time at this point. My point is that the system will be dead before it's good enough to consider using over real hardware.
All these have put on the Vita is censored games. Even the 3DS has more lewd games than the vita because everything lewd on the vita gets butchered hardcore.
Hope you're looking forward to DT2 :^)
>ocarina of time
>devil survivor 2
I don't even have a 3DS but I've played all of these.
How come the 3DS fanboys keep flooding the Vita threads like they'd feel extremely threatened by the system?
The sales shouldn't suggest so, the 3DS fanboys shouldn't feel the need to defend their system in completely unrelated threads, so what's the deal?
Did they run out of games to play or why are they so defensive every time people are just enjoying their Vitas?
Define weebshit. Some of those like NISA sure, but even then they gave Vita htoL#NiQ, which I thought was quite good despite it basically being a Limbo clone. I don't see how games like Dragon's Crown or Ys Memories of Celceta are weebshit either.
That's just Nintendo fanboys for you, still mad at Sony for...something, I don't even know.
ANYWAYS, op, be wary of shills and fanboys.
I don't even get why, but this kind of flood of 3DS fanboys usually happens at some point whenever you make a Vita thread on /v/. Especially if you do it on weekends, so try making a thread on middle of week if you want better replies.
Celceta doesn't have to be weeb shit. It's the worst game in the Ys series, as agreed upon by falcom generals.
Kefin is a better game than it, that's how much of a joke celceta is.
There was a massive fuss over the webkit exploit and now 6 months later they havent even got user code running on it.
>DS had 10 times more games of any genre you're thinking about.
Holy shit, Nintendo fanboys do love to overplay anything Nintendo.
Gimme some fighting, 3D action adventure and first- or third person shooters, because my DS is gathering dust.
Keep in mind you have to name 10 fighting games, 50 action adventures and 20 shooters, if you want to stay even close to your word. I'm being easy on you, I've got more games than that I liked on Vita but I don't want to be _that_ cruel.
3DS has been dead since 2013, that was the peak of the system.
Now all the 3DS gets are mediocre experiments from Nintendo to test micro transactions and DLC for the company and every large 3rd party developer got out of the 3DS train once they realize if their game isn't aimed for the 8-12 children or women, then the game is going to flop as every game has moved onto the Vita.
So the remaining 3rd party support is trying to cash in on the children market like with Yokai watch, MH Stories and more. This is why the Vita keeps getting game announcements for it while the 3DS has run dry of both game announcements and localisations for it due to the western audience of Nintendo fanboys that don't buy 3rd party games.
>plenty supportive of the Vita.
lel, soon 3ds will have more Atlus games than all Sony systems combined starting from PS2.
Yes, definitely, as long as you're okay with a game that has no problem kicking your ass. It's really cathartic when you finally beat a level that took you 30+ tries. It includes the SNES Umihara Kawase too. Totally worth it.

There you go faggot
We have this thread every day, every FUCKING day, and every single time vitafags trick some poor fool into buying their dying handheld.
I borrowed one from a friend to see what the hype was all about and guess what? Been through it's library already, probably because it isn't very extensive to being with.
What am I left with now? A broken PSP CFW and weebshit. What's there to be hopeful for? Weebshit, tons of it.
I'm not gonna lie, there are a few good games on the platform, but the vast majority of games ARE weebshit. So fuck off with your bullshit.
Eh, as someone who has been on vitagen for over 2 years now, they themselves aren't too helpful most of the tims. Legitimate questions get lost in the sea of tripfaggotry and shitposting. That said, every Vita owner, aspiring or otherwise, should keep an eye on the vitagen OP for news and the vitagen game list. If nothing else, they keep good tabs on what all comes out on Vita.
>nintendo fans actually recommending Call of Duty
Enough /v/ for the day it is.
The worst part of this is that it's just a copypaste of
with still no mention action-adventure and teeming plenty of 2/5 according to various reviews.
Why would anyone bother?
All 3DS fanboys do is spam unrelated threads with their shilling until it dies.
As I said, we thankfully only get this on weekends when the kids have the time, but it's still a bother.
Is that your actual argument for playing Naruto, Bleach and Call of Duty? Funny part of this is that these same fanboys call out this crap on other threads.
Thank god I'm not a fanboy this blind.

He said ten times more, not me.
I only stated five games because those I've played and enjoyed so far.
I'm not going to drop down to start just listing shovelware like a fanboy trying to make "impressive" lists of games.
OP here didn't think this thread was still alive.
All comments have been read and appreciated and taken into account.
I'm not shilling anyone. If I was I would have talked how I already own the thing. Or I guess I would.
Sounds like a decent list of games, out of which I already have gravity rush, killzone, muramasa and Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward from ps+. Might have dragons crown too if I remember correctly.
I already have a 3ds and enjoy games on it a lot. Vita would be a less embarassing to haul around/play in transit, and I could enjoy videos from it too.
If digimon cyber sleuth came to west it would really tip me over to buying Vita.
Playing ps1 games on the go is a nice thing I haven't thought about though. I've Ive bought psone classics on ps3 can I download them on Vita too?
Also as I have PS4, what are your experiences of the two devices together. Can I properly play games from Vita screen or is it advertisement bull?
Naruto has some of the best fighting games around, which is why Ninja storm sells so good time after time.
Call of Duty is fine as far as FPS games go. If you weren't so bothered by looking good in front of a bunch of anons on /v/, you would know this.
>I've Ive bought psone classics on ps3 can I download them on Vita too?
Yes, at least most games should work.
Technically through piracy you can make almost any PS1 game work, but there might be certain arbitrary limitations to what works on PS3 but not on Vita.
Or maybe not, I've not tried PSN PS1 games on PS3 but I've just heard some talks. Just plug the thing into PS3 and try.
Remote play works fantastically so long as you have decent internet speeds and are willing to mess around with button assignments a bit if the default doesn't do it for you - some stuff like Destiny will automatically alter the ui and include some touch controls if it detects you're playing on vita too, which is great.
>The Vita has absolutely jack shit compared to the 3ds and doesnt have any games as good as the 3DS's in any genre.
This is fucking bait but here you go:
Tales of Hearts R, Oreshika, P4G, Atelier Series, Sen no Kiseki
Umihara Kawase, Shovel Knight, Tearaway, LBP Vita, Sly Collection
Best adventure games
whatever the fuck you mean with this since you are listing basically VNs there
Ys MoC, Danganronpa, zero Escape, Steins;Gate, Dragon's Crown, Muramasa Rebirth
Best fighting games
Blazblue, j-stars victory vs, Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax
Killzone Mercenary, Unit-13, Resistance: Burning Skies, EDF
Best puzzle games
gtoL#NiQ, Deception IV
Best racing games
Wipeout 2048, Need for Speed: Most Wanted
Best hunting games
Toukiden Kiwami, Soul Sacrifice Delta, Freedom Wars
Best sports games
Fifa 13, Everybody's Golf
Disgaea 4, Natural Doctire, Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart, Frozen Synapse
And that's missing some genres like FPS, Shmups, Rhythm games, Topdpwn shooters and VNs which the vita has plenty of. It also has the better indie games by far since Shovel Knights is now also avaible on vita and the 3DS has basically jack shit .
In his defense I did play Bleach The Blade of Fate back in high school and it actually was a pretty decent fighter. Hell, some of the console Naruto games were good too. They are properties that lend themselves well to the fighting genre despite their licensed nature. That all said, I wouldn't call them necessary by any means. They just aren't that bad.
Post what, the ROM?
If you want pix of my DS with flashcard I happen to have it running Quake II here.
It's unplayable because of the low FPS.
A Vita is a fine purchase, you just need to know what you're getting in to.
Most "western" AAA+ games were launch titles that sold poorly, along with the console. In those times you could only get $50 trade in from Gamestop/Amazon and used/refurbished consoles were selling as low as $120 (which is the price I got mine for along with a clearance 4GB Memory card for $5.)
Since then, the Japanese game market has taken over development on the system alongside indie/Kickstarter games. There's plenty of games coming out that are translated, which another subset will tell you not to buy because they covered a boob window or gave a loli a swimsuit.
Sony is giving up on the vita
Threads like these are sad attempts to sell remaining vita stock before they go on the clearance rack
Pic related : the entire vita shelves on the clearance rack
I fucking want this game but I have a Vita backlog and can't make myself consider it until I play through Wrath of Heaven on my PS2 backlog. I did try the demo though and I liked it.
I love games that have paywalls too.
The game that killed Ys by casualizing it. Nice.
Boring MMO rotation beat em up with no difficulty what so ever.
A joke of a game.
>Toukiden Kiwami, Soul Sacrifice Delta, Freedom Wars
All literally shit. Source : I have them all and MH shits on every single one of them.
>which the vita has plenty of
Already been proven wrong.
>it's a bad thing that the Vita is actually capable of playing games that are also released on PS3 while the 3DS has problems running PS2 games with a steady framerate
>It's okay to list multiplats like Zero Escape or Blazblue for the 3DS
>It's okay to list ports like Zelda OoT, MM, Star Fox, Devil sruvivor for the 3DS
>>It's okay to list ports like Zelda OoT, MM, Star Fox, Devil sruvivor for the 3DS
Ports = games built from the ground up for a system, apparently. You heard it here first.
Vita fanboys never cease to say stupid shit.
Am I supposed to take you serious after you said something like this?
I love games that have paywalls too.
I mean what are we talking about? The price of the game? I didn't know 3DS games were free.
Post a picture with a timestamp of your vita and these games then - either in their boxes or their bubbles.
Make sure the vita is to the right of the pile of boxes, too.
I'll believe you then :^)
>lel the vita is shit, it has no games, buy a 3ds instead
>but it has games you're just making things up
>lol vitafags are so defensive with their dead handheld
Why does the Vita trigger /v/ so much?
The same way anime reaction images do.
I think it triggers normalfags more than anyone else. The Vita is a marketing disaster, no ifs, ands, or buts so the only people who like it are those who actually bother to educate themselves about it. At a distance the Vita does look pretty abysmal, and those who rely on that image won't exactly have much nice to say about it.
On the other hand, thats a good thing if I'm considering vita. Lots of cheap games.
Also I checked my psn and I have the following games just waiting till I buy vita and download them: Jak and Dexter Trilogy (already played through them on ps2 though), Soul sacrifice (not delta), Playstation all stars, Gravity rush, Sly coopper thieves in time, Uncharted, Spelunky, Dynasty warriors next, Guacamelee, Dragons Crown, Street fighter x tekken, and Killzone.
Now if I would buy some of the gamepacks that has download codes for more games, I'd have a decent library already.
Might go and buy one tomorrow.
I wish Vita games were cheap here.
They're still 40 dollars here. Stupid weebs.
Shoddiest wallpaper ever, but who gives a fuck.
So where was I? Oh yeah, the vita is shit.
Ignore the other guy, he's just shitposting.
16GB because it's more reasonably priced per GB and the overall price isn't high. Don't get a 32GB, those tend to be overpriced. Of course that's a moot point if you get a good deal.
Anyone else excited for this?
And no, fuck all of you >MUH 4 IMAGES
>Micro SD/memory stick/M2/fucking anything else
16 is enough for 3-4 full vita games with some PSP games on the side, as long as it's not something like digital only Atelier Ayesha with song DLC (which comes in at 6GB) or Killzone (which has a patch that the store page even warns won't fit on 4GB)
I'm at 32GB and still have to delete things, but I'm not paying over $50 for a memory card that's $20 in any other format.
>Do you tend to get good deals on the Vita in the UK anywhere?
Absolutely no idea, but where I live you might occasionally see those memory cards on sale in supermarkets and other local shops.
Just check around local places, online is kinda wasted effort.
Slim is easy to get, og might not be.
Slim has better ergonimics and better battery, but worse screen.
I'd get the original, since battery is still good and the OLED is a novelty, but 2k is still fine.
Nothing is removed entirely, they said four images were modified slightly and approved by the original dev. So it'll still be there, and we don't know which 4 images were censored.
I liked how every time she was walking in her undies something bad always happened.
Oh great, here come the censorship principles brigade.
I looked at a few of the images posted, and quite clearly there's one that looks like someone had hotglued an elf girl's ass (not wearing panties) They're probably removing the glue.
Someone said Best Vita game?
Cause I heard someone say BESTVITAGAME
Oh goddammit. I guess they said they weren't removing nudity, so now it all makes sense.
That's honestly even more disappointing, cause stuff like this is so hot. But honestly more understandable too, since shit like this I think WOULD push something to an AO rating.
>there's one that looks like someone had hotglued an elf girl's ass (not wearing panties)
>since shit like this I think WOULD push something to an AO rating.
>shit like this I think WOULD push something to an AO rating.
I hate how yanks have to make a huge difference between +17 and +18 games, to the point where a +18 means big trouble getting the game to sell.
I mean it just doesn't make any sense.
>since shit like this I think WOULD push something to an AO rating.
Senran Kagura Bon Appetit has Mirai sitting completely naked with whipped cream being the only thing covering her delicate spots with a mushroom that squirts out white liquid on her face when she sucks on it hovering above her. It got released with an M rating just fine.
>mushroom that squirts out white liquid
I'm sorry, I must have missed this. Where do you get this? Or is the white liquid just a clever use of more accessories?
And that's also not really 'in the game,' since the user has to specifically make all of those things themselves. I doubt the ESRB counts 'how creatively can you resize and place objects until they resemble something else' as part of their rating system.
Better yet, update the rating system so you wouldn't have to do strange things like this.
And at least here, digitally sold games have exactly the same legal rules as physical ones. I don't know if it's any different in USA, but it still seems extremely silly to me. It's just that what happens in the states affects the rest of the west as well, which is just as frustrating as Germany and robots.
I wish the Vita DID have games worth playing.
Mine's been gathering dust since I finished DR2.
No, I have the game. The dessert scene has only Mirari naked and covered in whipped cream. The mushroom spurting out white stuff would have to be accessories, but I can't seem to find a way to do that myself.
I sent an angry email to atlus, does that count?
I've had a 3DS since 2012 and it's a disappointing piece of shit.
>Worst Pokemon games
>More Mario drivel
>2 Zelda N64 games that casuals circle jerk over cause muh N64 masterpieces
>Playing fighting games on a 3DS, terrible and uncomfortable
>Best shooters, lol
The 3DS has only half the variety the Vita has, probably a bold statement, but the Vita has a lot of variety and when I got it this month I put my 3DS in a cabinet never looking back at it since.
Replaying those old Zelda games, while they were kinda nice,
it just made me feel like they were never that good to begin with.
I mean sure, it was the late 90s, but older games have held better to this day on how fun they're to play.
These people called the EU version of Bon-appetit not translating the voices in the dressing room "butchered." It's not really useful arguing with them.
It never changed Bravely Default, Monster Monpiece, and all the other games they bitch about. We'd probably be having 100 threads a day about it if they hadn't all latched on to Skyrim paid mods right now.
Do you think it would be possible to have DLC only accessible by redeemable voucher, since I doubt Sony wants AO content on PSN?
If so, ATLUS could totally make it such that if you email them and specifically request it within the first week of purchase, they just send you a code to make the game retain its original content.
DS games never appealed to me. Too much shovelware RPG, not enough action.
My DS was basically a machine for Contra and Castlevania. As much as I liked them, GBA had the better Castlevania and I just couldn't find any games that would really keep my attention because of gameplay. Ghost Trick and Ace Attorney were incredible, but not because of how they played exactly.
PSP had the better FFIV, Mario platforming was just better on GBA.
Yes, it's really good.
Don't go in expecting Etarian Odyssey however, you'll be sorely disappointed.
>haphazard Valkyria Chronicles
The games don't even play the same, they're like two completely genres.
Look at the library, and decide for yourself.
I think the Vita personally overrated by idorts, but if the library appeals to you, more power to you.
But asking /v/ is a stupid.
The problem with the Vita is that it is a port machine. It has good games, but you can get those games elsewhere. There are hardly any worthwhile exclusives on the system. It's a dust collector if you have PS3/PS4
Not really though, even of you consider Atelier, the definitive versions are for the Vita. You also can't play games like Ys Celceta, Hearts R and Soul Sacrifice Delta, Oreshika anywhere else. I have a PS3, and really, the only games it jas over the Vita, considering Japanese games, are the Tales games, Guilty Gear Xrd and Puppeteer. For future releases there's Star Ocean 5 and Persona 5
Its less modern Tales and more Eternia. It has world maps, cooking, aerial combos, collectathon sidequest (like lens in eternia) and Wonder Chefs.
The localization is very hit or miss. Its either you like it or hate it. Lots of Wooleyism involved. Then again there are things that are just bad like Mystic Artes having no subtitles or forgetting to put names on Beryl's MA Extensions, leaving the spells with blanks for names. Very lazy
Geez, that sounds like they completely half-assed the entire thing. Thanks though, I've dealt with awful awful translations in things before, so I can deal with bad translation choices, I just wanted to know if it was a generally decent Tales game to buy.
All that Neptunia stuff.
I like you anon.
I was really glad when I finally bought mine. I use it almost every day.
Best game are;
Soul Sacrifice Delta
First reply is an asspained Nintendrone.
Show us your ambassador ticket.
This would make for a great vita thread OP:
>now that the anti-vita posting is over with, let's have a vita thread
Maybe then we can actually talk about the fucking thing.
That shit is amazing.
Dude, you should go to a anime convention and sell some of these. I forgot the name for it... but there's one position where you can apply besides being a vendor. Maybe it was artist or something. I know Otakon has a section for people who sell their own art.
People will easily pay 10-15 bucks for each. Maybe as high as 20 for the bigger ones.
uncharted and sly cooper are quite dank
don't do it. sony has betrayed vita fans.
do not give them your money just to play persona 4 for the 100th time. its a port machine that could have been greater than the psp, but thanks to laziness it's become a controller for the ps4 and port indie machine.
buy a 3ds if you like video games
>the ds had no games
jesus christ is this the arguments sony fanboys have devolved too now that sony has abandoned the vita?
These threads have remained the same for almost 3 years now
The same list of shitty recommended games, with the occasional new addition
the 3ds library doesn't circle around weeb trash though.
the vita's does.
enjoy your dating sims
i'd say around 10% how you got 75% is completely beyond me, thats a picture of every game published by nintendo for the ds, the touch series did exist but to think their cooking and touch series games accounted for 75% of the DS library is the stupidest thing i've ever heard.
educate yourself sonygger
>just because there is a math game near the top doesn't make those games 75% shovelware you collosal retard. if you were to actually look at the picture you would come to the conclusion that 5-10% are shovelware, the rest are solid titles
>B-BUT THERE'S A MATH GAME AT THE TOP
Nah, the localization was great. It had a lot of humor and the translation itself flowed very naturally.
They did stuff like translating weird Japanese accents into almost unreadable text, but I didn't think it was a big deal. Overall the game had a lot of character due to the localization.
seriously dude. like 90% of those games are solid titles, how you are pulling numbers out of your ass like 50% are shovelware/puzzle games is completely beyond me
plus that's only a picture of games published by nintendo for the ds. its missing literally every game not published by nintendo and there are 2 times as many.
I like how sonyggers have entered such a state of delusion that they have resorted to calling the original DS library shitty when its amount of exclusives is larger than any system ever made.
it's sad, instead of vita fanboys accepting that sony has completely fucked them on the vita by abandoning it and calling it a "playstation now extender" they post that same list of ports thats been out since 2011. If you actually take one look at upcoming vita exclusives you would be shocked at how dead the system is.
but hey at least they have their ported pc indie games, they can't even get console ports anymore
