Chutebox

Maybe because Sony censors the press, remember the Ratchet and Clank review fiasco?

Anyways I do not need your trust but I want all lurkers to be warned that the Vita is very fragile and to avoid it at all costs.

What fiasco?

I think he means the one referenced in the Jeff G thread about the Future review.

Vita is a disaster and sony is so desperate.

SRTtoZ

Trolololololol!!!!!

To be fair, I owned and said just about the same thing about the PSP. I was not a fan of the system, even though I loved some of the games on it. That said, claiming you to be a Sony employee seems odd to me, and I was likewise unable to find many reports of busted sticks on the Vita.

[QUOTE="p4s2p0"] Depends on the type of games you play I used psp analog all the just has I am vita's

When I was playing the PSP, it was for TRPGs, racers like WipEout, Ratchet & Clank, and puzzlers like Lumines and Crush. Oh, and the GTA games.

[QUOTE="eNT1TY"][QUOTE="SpruceCaboose"][QUOTE="eNT1TY"] I don't know why and im certainly in the minority here but i am of the opinion that the controller might not be as pricey as people think. Its not like they're putting 450 ppi 2600x1600 ips panel on the thing with the newest gorilla glass cover.

And there is this: Nintendo's President Satoru Iwata later clarified that connecting multiple controllers was technically possible, but that it was not the company's primary concern due to the controller's price barrier

Thats statement by Iwata you posted does sound alarming but is it possible he was comparing prices in relation with the wiimote/controller? I guess it boils down to what one would consider expensive for a touchscreen device of the size. You mention an $80 ebook reader, would a $99 price point be considered expensive for what one could would pay for a touchscreen device of comparable size? Some have estimated upwards of $200 but i'm hoping it will be closer to $100.

$100 would be about the most I would consider reasonable. More than that and I can just buy a 3DS. But I would bet it will be about the same price as a 3DS, just from the technology supposedly in it. I mean, I believe a Wiimote and Nunchuk are over $100 together even, or at least it was at launch.

Lol dude stop talking to him. Let me quote him in an earlier thread.

Ready for this???

Iphone, asthetically you become an outcase playing a hardcore game console. I do not want to cause bystandards observing me eye damage so as public service I will keep the beast known as the 3DS and its gargantuan analog add on confined in my lair. The vita I do not want to be gyroing and touching **** in front of others since nearly all of the line up contains the "gimmicks" cows bashed the DS and 3DS for I would feel like a hypocrite as well and playing the Vita would damage my credibility. Tablet looks the best but if you are doing something that is rather embarrassing it is more visible but you definitely appear more enlightened using a Tablet. Touch is the same as the Iphone except I can not pick up smoking hot potentials numbers. cjuncto

Decent detecting Batman.

I wasn't accusing you of lying. I just asked if you were rough on controllers. And I never said I looked at media outlets. And you cannot seriously suggest that Sony censors forums and blogs?

Because even cheap e-readers are $80, so a touchscreen fancy thing will likely cost north of $100.

Sweet, glad we agree pumps fist. Only good looking Vita game is Gravity Rush and that is due to art style. Same reason Wind Waker looks good on GC when the Xbox was the most powerful console.

Futurama rules btw nice avatar

[QUOTE="SpruceCaboose"][QUOTE="PSP107"] yeah people lied about vita's analog stick being dualshock like. So far PSP's nub>>>>>> vita sticks.cjuncto

The PSP nub is horrible.

Atleast it was sturdy.

I returned three vitas so far... The analogs snap like twigs.

Yeah, since the nub was rarely touched, I didn't have much worry of wearing it out lol. And seriously? Three? How hard do you push those sticks?
