    Is it worth to buy a PSvita just for one game?

    So it goes like this. Persona 4 Golden is going to have it's european premiere soon but sadly I don't own Vita yet... As a big Persona franchise fan I've been looking forward for this title for a long time now but still...Getting Vita just for a one game is kinda lame idea to me however I really want to play that game badly. What should I do?

    If you want it, get it.

    There will likely be other Vita games you might enjoy.

    In the US, there's a promotion right now of a different free PS mobile game a week for 6 weeks. The only way to get these is via the Mobile store on your Mobile device (Xperia) or the Vita store.

    Then with Plus there's the Instant Collection. Approx. 12-18 Vita compatible games over the year. As well as the PS3 portion of Plus.

    For me, the LBP2 Cross-controller DLC is the main thing I'm getting it for. I don't have one yet, but my birthday's 2 weeks away.

    It's not worth buying any console for just one game.

    I was going to get a vita but then I realized just for a few games is a huge waste of money
    They don't make many titles that are worth buying IMO

    I always end up doing that, I bought a ps2 purely for kingdom hearts and ps3 for final fantasy XIII but today I have over a hundred games for each console! You never know what that one system will get in the future. Hell man just do it the Vita is really cool if you got a ps3 cause you can cross play and transfer. I did it for persona 4 golden too I platted it and I have 7 games for it already. Woo! The only downside that makes people not want the Vita is the memory card. 32GB for 99$?!

    I was one of those that preordered the Vita and so far no regrets. It's really powerful and still very promising, not so many games ATM, but I hope for more on the nearby future.

    It really depends. I wouldn't advice to buying a console/handheld just for one game. However, you do say you are a big Persona fan, so I'm sure you'd enjoy the game a lot, justifying the purchase of the Vita. I also think there's bound to be a few more games you'd consider worth buying for the system in the following months/years, so give it a go.

    I bought mine for Persona 4 but being a PSN+ member helps me get other titles as well.

    I say yes, because you are really looking forward to the game and the Vita is still young, so it will definitely be getting more games in the future. I highly doubt you won't like any of them.

    id honestly say get it..... i knew i was gonna buy the vita for Phantasy Star online 2 which isn't even out yet....... that was one game i know id get it for, but when i knew about the Assassin's creed Game/Vita, in which im a major AC Fan..... i brought the Assassin's Creed white vita Bundle....... and ever since i got it i have been loving the vita... i have been more on my vita than i have my Ps3, lol
    since buying it i just got Uncharted 3 and Black Ops for the vita........... (only got them b/c they were on sale around the new year's sale time) but even so...it's worth it, even if you just want one game, i guarantee you'll end up coming across more games for the vita that you will end up buying

    I'd say yes because of all the reasons given above. There are going to be a lot of great games releasing for the PS Vita soon and it would be worth it purchasing one now and enjoy Persona 4 Golden. :thumsbup:

    Come to think of it there's no need to rush at all. It's true I've been looking forward for this title for a long time but.I think I can wait a little while longer. (Maybe 'till Vita's price drop or once more cool games comes out)
    BTW. Thank you all for your words of advice. Much appreciate!

    if you had PS+ I would recommend getting it now; you can get Uncharted and Gravity Rush for free along with a slew of other strong titles. Aside from the battery life, you can use it for movies while commuting. Persona is a lengthy game so you could get your money's worth, but then again if you want to play it a LOT consecutively, the battery life will annoy you.

    I doubt it will be the only game you'll play. I bought a 3DS only for Kingdom Hearts 3D, but I bought a lot of other games over time too.

    I seriously considered to buy a xbox 360 just for forza4, but yes, i think the vita is worth it becouse it is so much more, internet, youtube, twitter...ond so on. I don't think it will stay at just one game...What amazes me every day is the extreme picture quality, but yes, the battery life is a bit short. When you are away a lot you could use the extra backup battery.

    Me personally I wouldn't buy one just for one game. I would wait until there were more games I would want to play on it, before I bought one. I considered buying an 360 just to play Fable and Alan Wake, but decided against it, because it wasn't worth the money to play a 2 titles.

    I got mine for next to nothing, i have played it every day for over a month from Gravity Rush and Frobisher Says to Resident Evil Nemesis and Treasures Of Montezuma Blitz, i can't say i'm bored having yet to play most of the bigger games like LBP Vita, NFS and the like.

    It's worth it, if you embrace every level of it, that's big retail games, freebies, PSN types, PSone and PSP games.

    I think it's worth it because PS Vita is like 'New Born Babies' in this console world. I do kinda considered before buying Vita for the first time because there's no game I like but suddenly appear Persona 4 Golden, Project Diva F by those two Title already make me want to buy Vita

    Anyway, after I have it now I can say "it's Worth it to buy" especially if there is a game you like. Now I'm just gonna wait Senran Kagura and Oboro Muramasa to release
