Not surprised tbh, 3DS is having a spectacular year so naturally 3rd parties would be more interesting in that handheld or if their greedy they'll ofcourse want to rip you off via mobile games.

Pretty sad tbh because the Vita is one hell of a handheld. Pretty sure Capcom jumped ship too and doubt they'll release a new monster hunter on it(still hoping though).

Though they really aren't helping themselves by not bundling games that are on both the Vita & PS3. I guess it could use a price slash too tbh, would probably help them in the long run.

I've messed with a demo one before and it was much better that I expected, although I found the face buttons too small.

Its ironic how lack of third part support kinda kills third party support in the first place. It might help if they quite marketing their handhelds as portable playstations and come up with things that don't have a console counterpart.

It's because theres a bunch of third parties saying "We're not willing to go in because of the lack of third party support"

IF YOU GO IN THERE THE SUPPORT WILL COME. Props to Ubisoft for pushing a huge name title on it.

it's all because of storage space and no ps3 remote play support not to mention the lack of psp and ps1 games. most people i know, including myself, need terabytes now not even a gb of space is a joke. if they can make it up to their customers by fixing those problems sales will go up and 3rd parties will come back but until then the vita is crap.

Why make for Vita when you can just make for PS3 and 360 and get access to a combined 100 million customers. Vita is close to current gen consoles visually which means the work developers have to put in is similar to a PS3 or 360 game, this is fine if the customers are there, but Vita has shown little growth and the million or so owners hardly constitute a solid install base. It's too expensive for developers to make a Vita version of something that may at best sell 20,000 copies and not make a profit.

my, so self-centered.

what about the headaches the last psp gen went through for both devs and owners? things like hacking, exploiting... there was no stopping it after a while.
what about the price tag that was higher then the other competitors?
what about the expensive memory cards.
what about the rough sales compared to the 3DS.
and the glitches on release day.
the doubt of being hacked or not every day day.
not to mention the 3DS doing much better at the moment.

all that plus more which i'm sure the other commenters can add and we live in an economical time where there's less room for mistakes. can't you see that both the devs and users are hesitating because of a lot of things and not just the problems that interest you :/

out of curiosity though. what on earth do you plan to use a terabyte for? it's overkill even for porn and HD movies.

hah have over 500gb of media and only 46.5gb is hd, 200gb is music and the rest is regular dvd rips of my own dvd collection. and also the hacking problems dont matter people are going to hack. everyone thought the go was unhackable and people are still hacking the ps3 obviously. there are classes that teach people how to hack to stop people from hacking, so there's pretty much no way anyone can stop hacking. it's just code all it takes is a little manipulation. and honestly i dont see what a larger storage capacity and psp/ps1 compatibility has to do with making it more susceptible to hacks. Seriously you really think if a vita had 1tb and could play metal gear 1 and peace walker it's more likely to get hacked?

and dont be an as*hole calling me self-centered i'm speaking up for my friends i'm the only one out of them who chose not to buy a vita. they are the ones with the problems not me.


quote Mystic Aurora
Of course, why would anyone want to watch films meant for the big screen on a small one like the Vita or 3DS? I don't get that.
it's not the point of watching videos on the vita, it's the fact that you can take your media and enjoy anywhere with the addition of plugging into a ps3 or perhaps some smart tv. i used to go to friends houses with a my box of dvds cause no one knew what to watch. If my pspgo had a 2tb card like it was supposed to (look up 2tb SDXC sony invested in it before the go came out) then i wouldn't have that problem could just bring everything with me. with the way the ps3 is set up pretty much every external hard drive doesn't work with the ps3 i can't find a single external that's Fat32, finding a program that will format a drive that's bigger than 100gb to Fat32 is even worse.

quote Mystic Aurora
P.S. It doesn't help that Vita cards are effin' expensive, too. Why not use standard SDHC?
because SDXC is the standard now 32gb all the way up to 2tb of course they only released the 32gb and 64gb to the public last year when they were all supposed to be out 2010. if you pay then $1,000 for the 'development package' (which gives you the right to make compatible devices) then you can get the 2tb SDXC.

it still don't change the fact that your sales predictions are false mate >:/
kind of a big deal right? but i think it's safe to say that the last thing Sony needs right now is an overpriced handheld with a 1 terabyte memory that has no games.

Haha. Yeah a 1TB portable device, it'd either cost ridiculous amounts to even make it portable, or be so large that it wouldn't even be properly portable.

come to think of it. we've been developing ourselves on this planet for more then 50,000 years... 50,000 years and still we haven't found a way to put a tiny little terabyte on a psp.

not to mention the jetson cars. always wanted one ever since i was 7 but i don't see one yet.
i blame the politicians...

I'm sure hacking has something to do with it. All the problems with the psp probably left a sour taste it their mouths. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

Overpriced memory doesn't help. My 8gb memory stick is already full, if I were to upgrade I would have to fork out $50 for at least 16gb to insure I have enough room. Thats on top of the system and any games.
