  1. 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.

  2. 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!”

  3. Yea I can’t look at that thing without remembering how bull shit the prices were for the proprietary memory cards.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.
