That was a rockin piece of hardware.
Still got the regular psp Bois.
Why is it sad? Who hurt it?
Just got a Vita and Jailbroke it. OMG I regret not doing this sooner.
Amazing piece of Hardware. Lacked titles to get the sales.
Edit: wow this comment blew up
There’s a lot of great comments I saw about how it did have titles, indie titles, crossplay, ports, etc. The Vita did not have Pokémon. I know, it’s a Nintendo IP. The point I’m trying to make is that Vita did not have a major title that was exclusive to its handheld. I worked at a Gamestop style store when the Vita came out and we could not move them when they came in used. The price point was too high and it had no flagship games. When the Wii and Switch came out they had a Zelda title that was released on it and the previous generation console, but because they had a big flagship title at launch they both did great. Vita didn’t have that and thus it was consigned to oblivion even though it was far superior to the DS and 3DS.
Vita lives in my backpack and goes with me to work everyday. Switch remains docked.
I came here expecting the WiiU instead.
Still use it for remote play when my kid is watching tv sometimes.
I loved my Vita, I really regret having to sell it.
I’m a 42 year old man and the last time I mentioned upgrading the gaming systems, MY mother yells “I thought you already had a Nintendo!”
A Switch Pro with the display of launch Vita would be bitchin.
Yea I can’t look at that thing without remembering how bull shit the prices were for the proprietary memory cards.
Vita is an awesome piece of a boye.
Lack of games made the boye almost dead.
You mean I can finally play the PS1 classic final fantasy games on the go?!
The Vita’s greatest enemy was its own creator.
I love my vita!
Those analog sticks will still outlast the ones on the switch =/
I mean … Portable Borderlands 2 tho
To be fair, the vita fucking owns
Come on dude, have some respect. The PS Vita bled so the switch could walk.
Meanwhile, I’m playing Persona 4 Golden on mine. I fucking love it
The fact that the PS VITA didn’t live to it’s full potential pains me on a SOUL CRUSHING level. It’s so close to greatness
Why they don’t just call it the Nintendo LiteSwitch is beyond me….
I still own a ps vita I bought one in January to play all of the danganronpa games and to play persona 4. The console is really good It’s sad that it flopped.
That’s actually still a good handheld. 😁
“Is that a PS Vita?” – Frank Underwood
I’ve actually been debating getting a Vita or a PSTV in order to play Golden, and only Golden really. However, the current price point of either of them is way more than I want to spend… It’s been so many years, and it’s still not cheap.
Vita just came out at an unfortunate time I think, when everyone thought mobile phone games would be the future of gaming for some reason.
I was about to say you can hack your Vita to get a lot of life out of it (NES, SNES, Genesis, GBA, PS1, PSP, PSVita etc) then I remembered this article and realized my suggestion is even more off topic than that: [https://thehardtimes.net/harddrive/spend-80-snes-classic-can-install-emulators-raspberry-pi-never-shut-fuck/](https://thehardtimes.net/harddrive/spend-80-snes-classic-can-install-emulators-raspberry-pi-never-shut-fuck/)
Still a sweet little emulation device though.
The Vita will have the longer battery life of the two. 😀
Hey! No shitting on the Vita. It’s already had a hard life.
