Now they just need to update the price and memory card inclusion.

Truer words have never been spoken. I mostly only want the PSP for all of Nippon Ichi's games (Disgaea ports, the Prinny games, Z.H.P., ect), and $300 (after console, memory card, and a few games) is a little too much for something I won't get much use out of.

The Vita is going for $200 while the 3DS is $170, the price of the Vita is fair imo. It's those memory cards that need a massive price drop. <_>
Even if it got a price drop for the holidays, I see it still being crushed by the $130 2DS.

It's gonna get massively crushed by the 3DS this holiday season, no one has one of these things. I haven't heard of a single new game coming out for this thing that I would be even slightly interested in playing.

I was going to note before that in all of the leaked Black Friday sales material I've seen so far the Vita either has no advertisements at all or listed only in relation to other Sony products. No sales on any hardware or games.

Sony should just push a PS4+Vita bundle for $500-550.

Tommy Vercetti That's actually a pretty clever idea. I would have gone in for that.

Sony probably knew that the Vita will be crushed this holiday season and didn't want to spend money on advertisements for it. lol

You "haven't heard of a single new game" on PSVita, you must be living under the rock then. Plenty of new games, Killzone: Mercenary, Batman: Origins Black Gate, Dead or Alive: Need for Speed, Moto GP, F1, Silent Hill, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, Little Big Planet, Uncharted, Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty, Resistance, FIFA 14 and other plenty of RPGs, and PSN games.

Here, PSVita is cheap as chips now, get some shitty jobs and buy it folks!!!

P.S. GTA V is also rumored to be coming on PSVita in mid 2014, before they release it on PS4.

A lot of those had months between their releases and most are pretty mediocre.

e.g - Assassin's Creed, Silent Hill and CoD were sub-par while Resistance was little more than a crappy tech demo for the Vita's input methods. Also, all of those released last year so that's not so new.

Revised list containing games that are actually new (released in 2013)
Killzone: Mercenary, Batman Origins Black Gate, Dead or Alive, MotoGP(Europe only), FIFA14.

And I'd love to see these plentiful RPGs. No, really, my vita's been gathering dust ever since I beat Persona 4 twice over. Persona 4 Golden, Dragon's Crown and Atelier ports are the only ones that spring to mind and Atelier is weeaboo garbage, and I say that as someone who loves Persona and SMT in general. Anything else I can think of is met with the thought "Wait, no, that was PSP."

I've had a Vita since launch and I have to admit that the selection is weak because of terrible release pacing and early titles trying to force every gimmick the system can throw into a game at once while most of the ones that don't are ports. It doesn't help that Sony's done *bleep* all for the system since they're too busy with the PS4.

It's a common phenomenon that folks (gamers) seem to be a little concerned about the games that PSVita has had so far. But Hey, games like 'Velocity Ultra' and 'Muramasa Rebirth' and 'Soul Sacrifice' are worthy titles to look at! Can't wait for GTAV on Vita

Well, folks, at the end of the day, not many people have time to play consoles at home all day, I'm a VERY, VERY busy man, so I spent a considerable amount of time playing Vita on-the-go. Some of the Vita has dust on it, because their owners have spent time to play consoles games rather than spending time on a handheld. Store it in a dust-proof drawer then!

All in all, for me PSVita is a must-have handheld because I don't have enough time to play console games. PSVita, in effect, is the most powerful handheld ever created so far for handheld gamers. Can't wait for many possibilities that PSVita contributes towards PS4 games. Roll on November 29th.

I never said it wasn't powerful, that's where a lot of the appeal lies, in the possibilities that come in that little powerhouse. But nobody's fully capitalizing on it because of a weak launch year. So now it gets iOS and PSN leftovers and not much else.

I'm a big (j)rpg guy so PSP was pretty good to me, but Vita's been lacking. And I really wanted to like Soul Sacrifice but it just didn't do it for me.

Japan seems pretty content with not releasing what they're getting either, except Ys at some time... maybe.

Feels like 3DS is taking up the RPG mantle with Monster Hunter, SMT, Etrian Odyssey and more backing from smaller developers leading to stuff like Crimson Shroud.

It occurred to me writing this that western styled rpgs are practically nonexistent on portables, maybe someone should do something about that.

Wouldn't even bug me if it became some kind of home to console ports and not much else as long as they did it with consistency and with higher quality. Some people are inherently more attracted to portables, myself included.
