Its been like half a year or whatever since the Vita came out and games. Is it even worth spending 200 bucks on? There's hardly alot of games for it. Just stuff like Ninja Gaiden and a portable version of the new Mortal Kombat game and that Uncharted Golden something.

I wouldn't personally. I think it's absolute crap for the time it's been on the market, and even crappier prices.

I spend money on my Vita, and I haven't regretted anything yet... There are several good games. If you're not into ports(I like them), there's Sound Shapes, Wipeout 2048, Lumines: Electronic Symphony, LittleBigPlanet, and Retro City Rampage is coming out this Tuesday. Speaking of new releases, Spy Hunter is coming out that day as well.

Well it's a waste of money if all the games are just Uncharted Gold Abyss, a Ninja Gaiden game and a portable version of the new Mortal Kombat game.

200 bucks I could use for groceries

i personally dont think its worth it at the moment, but thats just my opinion, but also at the same time, if your seriously debating on a Vita or groceries, you should probably rethink your priorities and save up a bit more money first anyways, but its your life and your choices so do as you please

Im a PC Gamer that doesn't own a Console, the PSV is perfect for me, I can play PS1 Games, PsP Games, PSV Games, PSN Games, and SOME PS3 Cross Play Games. I miss out on some Console only games since I game on a PC, however the Vita does get some games I otherwise wouldn't have been able to get on my PC. It was the first handheld iv bought since the GameBoy Advance, and it probably is the best handheld I have ever played before. However that is because in MY Situation I see the value in it, that may be different in your eyes. Research products for yourself, don't ask a question no one can answer but yourself...

I think it's fairly obvious this is a troll thread...

As much as I want everyone to get a Vita, I don't know if you deserve one yet OP. It is that awesome. On a serious note, look up all the games. If you can find 5 that you want to play that are out now, then it is worth it. It is portable gaming at the absolute pinnacle IMO.

Exactly. Honestly TC, if you believe the games you listed are the only ones worth getting at this time, if I were in your shoes I wouldn't purchase the device. However, I know better and know for a fact there are a healthy amount of games (that interest me anyway) that will be out by the end of this year, if not already released. This is a question you really must ask yourself as no two gamers tastes are exactly alike. For my own tastes, I'd say yes, it is worth it. Do more research on games available/coming soon.

If there are games you find worth owning then certainly.

Little Big Planet was the system seller for me, also picked up Resistance, Madden, and New LKS. Going to pick up Black Ops, Persona 4, and Assassins Creed: Liberation. That's far more than enough to keep me enteratined on the go!

A simple answer at the moment is...the PSvita is not for you.

This is why I am still sticking with the PSP. PSP has a bigger game library such as regular UMD games and the UMD movie discs that you can still get at gamestop.

Name just one good game for the Vita. Seriously. Sony rushed it by releasing portable versions for Marve vs Capcom 1, 2 and 3, then the new Mortal Kombat game and a silly Vita Uncharted game and thats about it for games for the Vita.

To me its not worth wasting 200 bucks on a Vita since that's all I see for games for the Vita

I'll name two good Vita games: Super Stardust Delta and Little Big Planet Vita. Anyway, this is the "PSP/Vita" forum, not System Wars. Make a note of that.

I enjoy my VITA quite a bit. It's the finest handheld gaming system ever made - hands down. There are a bunch of games on the market for it right now that I'd like to get, but money is the issue. I'm not sure if it's found any sort of killer-app yet... Maybe LBPV? I heard good things about it before and after release, so it must be decent.

Truth be told I've spent most of my time with it playing PSOne games, but the one cart game I have wasn't bad, and the downloadable game I have is also pretty cool. I think one thing I've learned in retrospect, since I bought the VITA, is that you really can't own one without first plopping down more money for a good game and a good memory card. A so-so game will only hold your interest for so long, as will smaller downloadable games even if they are pretty original or fun. You want to make sure you're getting a game with lots of replayability or a lot of playtime when you get your VITA. That's my cent.
