Playstation Vita impressions

The analogue stick is small compared to PSP and Dual Shock 3. The construction of the plastics are lighter than PSP or most smartphones. The transparent shoulder buttons don't feel much different than the ones on the PlayStation Portable, though perhaps a tad springier in their action, and between them there are a pair of iPod nano-like volume buttons and a pair of thin plastic covers. The pad works a lot better than PSP's analogue pad for first person shooters. Sony consumer products head Kaz Hirai said that Vita is expected to be profitable within 3 years. Sony picked the worst cellular provider, AT&T for 3g access. The best is Verizon.



I am waiting for Final Fantasy, Elder Scrolls, Square-Enix developed RPGs, Ridge Racer VIII. I don't have enough money to buy the 7.0 - 7.9 RPGs for DS or PSP or Vita. NIS America and Atlus never have good RPGs for PSP or Dual Screen. probably never would. More of the same is okay.

Hm, a remake of Final Fantasy 7 would be nice. They're going to remake 10, right? It's an odd choice, compared to the other possibilities, but I suppose that it doesn't really matter. It would be cool if they throw in some new and extra features for the Vita remake.

Final Fantasy X is for PS3, why care about Vita port! Vita port is inferior in every way. Vita is bought for unique games like Gravity Daze, Persona 4, Wipeout 2048 and Uncharted Abyss.

I agree that Square-Enix sets Vita up for FF7, because prequel Crisis Core:FF7 which was 8/10.

I basically bought PSP to show pictures of my game/CD collection w/o color ink and Wipeout Pure. I liked the whole Extreme-G 3 / Wipeout Fusion / F-Zero GX sub-genre. PSP had Metal Gear Solid for it so I kept mine.
