I've done it. I've bought a Vita this morning. Going to pick it up later today. It's going to set me back a little over 250$ for the VITA 3G & 4 GB & 16 GB & Motorstorm RC. For some reason the 3G bundle with Motorstorm RC and a 4GB memory card is the cheapest SKU right now. The thing is, I'm not really into the Vita and its games, I'm more into the idea of it.
- Since its final price cut, I always wanted a PSP. Now the PSV is barely more expensive than the PSP.
- All the PSP's turnbased JRPGs are kinda my jam (or were at some point at least). Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions, Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, Valkyria Chronicles 2. I'll jam all of those on a memcard, they might even all fit on the 4GB one.
- I just got PS+ too, which will give me access to Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Rayman Origins and Gravity Rush - all of which seem fairly worthwhile. And there's always going to be more coming from PS+ in the future.
- Yes - in the end, I really wanted a Vita for remote play. The whole companion device aspect of it is really enticing to me, looking forward to playing full-blown PS4 games on my PSV in bed or on the go - but that's still ways off.
So whilst it's not a bad value by any means, do I really have the time to spend on PSP and Vita games, when I don't really commute? Do I really want to play Uncharted: Golden Abyss and such over proper homeconsole and PC games? I don't know, but I guess now I'm commited. So to you PSV guys, what to do with my shiny new toy?
