Default New PlaystationVita handheld system

While looking around amazon I found this...
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...pf_rd_i=507846

Guessing this not a PSP remake, but a new handheld system for Playstation, usually a handheld system comes out before a an actual non handheld system

Does this mean PS4 possibly in 2013?

I'm not an adamant console gamer outside of NBA2k11/12 on the PS3.

Yes the vita was announced some time ago

No I don't expect the PS4 until 2014 or 15.

I think the new Xbox is supposed to be announced this year. So it's possible PS4 could come earlier.

We know the Wii U is already announced.

Ah I see, shows how much I follow console gaming, that I didn't know this and the Wii U were annouced.

Fhuk. I hope they don't come up with the PS4 anytime soon I'm about to purchase one now. Also that shit looks similar to the PSP. I had the PSP years back was addicted to it, even hacked it. I loved it. I would love to get one back but I forgot how to hack it. Download some games and shit for it. I miss PSP. How's the graphics going to be on this new handheld?

Looks the same like the PSP graphic wise, added touch screen basically. I don't see the main reason to upgrade to this.

Yea I hope they ride out the PS3 for another few years. It's really a great system and I don't want to buy anything else in the next 2 years.

As for the Vita? Like all handhelds these days, it gets a big "meh" from me. When it comes to deep involving games, I want to sit down and play them on a large screen. Just relaxing and having that full experience. When it comes to handheld gaming, it's all about the quick 5-10 minute session and that caters more to basic casual games. I don't want to spend $30+ on these types of games. I think modern cell phones have gotten the handheld gaming market down right. I'd much rather play cheap games on my Android phone than the Vita or 3DS or whatever. Leave the big games to the main consoles.

I understand what you mean. handheld gaming has gone progressively cheap and I can't tell the difference yearly as if their focusing on bigger things maybe in consoles. I hated the Nintendo DS, my father goes out pays $300+ for one for my little sister. It makes no sense she hardly plays it. The PSP on the other hand I played on game, or two. Socom FTB and FTB2. Addicted hell yes. I spend HOURS and HOURS playing that, met a shitload of people online and went distances to purchase a mic after mine broke. My childhood was all about that PSP.

In one sense, I feel like the portable community is being robbed, but in another there isn't much that CAN be done to it.

Yea the graphics are slightly better, but don't know if it's worth buying it at this price... people who don't own a PS3 may as well buy a PS3 since it is the same price as this handheld.

Yea

Hasn't the PSP been dominated by Nintendo's DS? I read some stats somewhere about this. Guess Nintendo really knows how to suck people's money. Never really played a DS seriously but i heard the games are enjoying?

Yeah I also hope they ride out the ps3. I don't play it that much and I feel guilty for playing xbox more

The Vita is a whole lot better then the PSP.
Sony needs to make a better effort of marketing this thing.

Pros...

Cool titles coming out...

Uncharted Golden Abyss
Street Fighter vs. Tekken
Resistance Burning Skies
Little Big Planet
Mod Nation
Wipeout
Little Deviants
A new God of War title soon etc.

Also downloadable games from PSN

Back touch screen...real cool feature for game play I can't wait to try

Cross Play...you can play against friends on a PS3

GPS WiFi

Six Axis Motion sensor and front and rear cameras....OLED Screen



Cons....

You need to buy proprietary memory sticks that are pretty pricey

And it does cost $250...but when you think about it not a bad price point

5 hour battery life....which makes sense because look at all the features





But really this thing is far better then a PSP
I just want them to pump out more GOOD games at a cheap price...would not mind spending $29.99 on a good game.

And I heard they are bundling up the first ones with games...so pretty cool.

I'm gunna pick one up.
