GS News - New Vita announcements and the leaked Xbox One video
In this edition of GameSpot News; Playstation shows off the new slimmer Vita and the Vita TV, we show the leaked Xbox One dashboard video, and talk about the upcoming game Titanfall.
Maybe instead of adding more hardware for the vita and expecting it to sell, they should make more software. Why do you think the 3DS is outselling it 10 to 1. The vita kills it in hardware, but the 3DS has actually has games.
LOVE the new Vita color range :) Vita tv looks interesting too. I just want to know which screen is better; and the differences between the original OLED or the new LCD?
Would be better if they improve the ergonomics on the Vita instead. Damn my hands got screwed up after playing some minutes. It's SO "un"ergonomic. The Vita TV thing is most interesting as it let you play the games with a regular Dual Shock 3 controller.
I'm into the Vita TV idea, assuming it's pretty cheap. I feel like the right budget home console could really take off. So far there's been Ouya and some other Android stuff, none of which seem to be exactly blockbusters at this point but it's different when you put a major budget behind it. Ouya made a stir w/ how much money it generated on KickStarter but that's peanuts compared to the kind of financial clout Sony has. Maybe w/ Sony's cash and library of legacy titles, they can make something of this market.
I like the idea of the new vita but why did they get rid of the OLED? You can't just go from OLED back to LED.
I think that releasing PS Vita Slim and Vita TV is a smart move from Sony. Although I'm going to buy the regular Vita (OLED screen ftw), I think that many people would be interested in Slim or TV. PS Vita needs to sell more units so the developers would start making more AAA games for it and use its full potential.
About Vita TV,
Sony did spend loads of cash on Vita, so they want to make it for TV since handholds don’t sell good. They should drop Vita. Vita TV is a another system, another money to make, but to spend as well on it. PS3 will take place of cheap Sony’s console, while PS4 will be the new and exclusive (expensive) one. I don’t see any place for Vita TV. Some people will buy it for curiosity. This project will not leave Japan.
vita colors? the first one looks better, thought slimmer and lighter would be nicer on my jeans. I´m buying the current model next week, but if both were available I would preffer the slim, as it will problably be cheaper.
Super confused about vita TV. Love the ps4 streaming part (would be awasome to do split screen multiplayer in two different TVs), but not sure how much damage this will do to the PS vita touch screen based games, similar (or even worse) to what the 2DS might do for 3D games on the 3DS
Screw the Vita slim. Sony is supposed to be improving the Vita with the later versions, not ditching the OLED display for crappy LCD. They should have also added hdmi output, instead of focus solely on cost cutting. With the psp, Sony tried to improve the visual quality with the newer models, not make them worse. I'm getting the first gen vita instead.
why on earth would you swap a cutting edge OLED screen for a shitty lcd? oh right, cheapness i get it
Titanfall could also suffer from being multiplayer only. I normally like to use the campaign to get used to all the weapons and things before then going online. If it's priced at the same cost as COD then it feels like less value.
It's nice not having GameSpot exploit Jess because she's a woman. Now maybe if they can find someone who's not white....
@Skirner I'm still struggling to find a comfortable way to hold the Vita for long stretches. Fortunately, I have Spelunky to motivate me.
@Zombie97 No, the Vita needs more games so people will actually buy it. Do you think people just went out and started buying the 3DS so they would make games? No. Nintendo made a bunch of good games for it this year, and it sold well because of that.
@WolfCronje I saw that too... "Who says mondays aren't exciting :D"
@brucemoto HDMI output would be suuuuper helpful for us at work. Capturing footage for the Vita suuuucks.
@brucemoto Yea LCD is a downer....
@brucemoto Always intended on getting a PS Vita just not ready as yet. Now I am being force to get one now just to avoid the LCD display.
@123crip123 Forever out of reach, just like the possibility of you losing your virginity.
@kgallis21 i think if you give it times it will slowly take it over.
@cboye18 dont worry im sure everyone feels the same way.
@inspectercoley is there not a "mutiplayer/online storyline/campaign" ? if not, it seems like a waste.
@inspectercoley I think more and more games aren't going to give you that opportunity and will instead send you straight online. I will say about Titanfall, though, that because there are a lot of AI soldiers on the field as well, you can still get the hang of things by blasting them without getting totally steamrolled by other players.
@Doombot6000 Hi, MacGyver! ;DDDDD
@GBl4wd0g They had Hispanic hosts in the past, but it's basically a Caucasian/Asia deal these days. Can't remember a black person ever hosting anything on Gamespot.
@GBl4wd0g 4 a change?
@brucemoto Aaarrhhh, whatever.
@Skirner Huh! I bought some trigger thingies for my Dualshock 3 to make the triggers convex and have really enjoyed them. Those grips look bulky, but I'll be interested to hear what you think of 'em.
