It’s been a minute since i wrote a review but life has a way of giving you curve balls. In my down town i traded in my old PSPgo and got my hands on a PlayStation Vita. With the dwindling Vita market i found the system a cheap buy. As fun as it is to play with a touch screen system its what this has in store for it that makes me exited.
I first got the PS Vita to play one of my cult favorites, Disgaea 3, and was waiting with baited breath for the release of Persona 4 Golden. After beating Disgaea and killing a lovely 110 hours on Persona 4 to get the true ending I truly felt it was the end of my Vita playing days. To my joy despite Sony saying they had no plans to port PS2 games to the vita i find out that Sony announced it was going to release Final Fantasy X HD for PS3 and possibly Vita. This would be the second PS2 re-release for VITA. I Hope they keep up the trend and please the rest of the fanboys including myself.
I can’t wait for the US release of Final Fantasy Type-0. The series has yet to truly let me down. With in depth character development and interesting living and boss mechanics, and stories that are award worthy Square Soft has always been in my eyes the master of RPGs.One of the best parts of PSP/Vita in general is being able to play great PS1 tittles. Hopefully they continue with great PS2 tittles.
The only thing that has put me off has been the price of games. Despite the nice graphics and touch capacity in all we normally see a almost shortened version of major titles. With Assassins creeds release on PS3 a almost abridged version to the real game was given to the Vita. Despite being a fun game to play it just didn’t have the depth and strength of the main tittle but still carried a $50 price tag. These games need to be cheaper to keep me coming back for more.
Due to lack of popular titles or just the passing of time I was able to pick up a Vita used with a 8gig card for just $150. Well worth the buy for the hours of portable entertainment. If your a fan of PS2 tittles or just want a high quality gaming handheld i would strongly suggest taking another look at the PS Vita.
