    Is Ps Vita Worth buying?

    Hi I was thinking of buying a ps vita for $250 but doing research on the product people were not happy with some of the games or not having enough games. So I would like to know should i just go spend my money or wait until price goes down?

    well there are several of these threads scattered over the forums and a little research might have answered your question instead of opening up yet another thread about this topic but let me give you my 2 cents.

    i had a vita and loved every minute of it. i thought it was a great handheld and did lots of cool things and i liked a few games like uncharted and hot shots golf plus unit 13 and escape plan from the psn. the stock in vita is only going to go up once the ps4 comes out because of the said remote play and connectivity between the two. i only sold mine on ebay cause i need some extra cash to take care of stuff but i full plan on getting another one. i've heard rumors there will be a bundle with the ps4 that will include a vita but it's just a rumor so i don't know. but i am waiting till i get a ps4 to get another vita. and i am getting a ps4 on launch.

    In my opinion, yes, it's worth every penny. It has plenty of great games and I've used it far more than I've used my 3DS.

    My opinion: Meh....

    It's a decent handheld but it is lacking exclusives. Also the harddisc space may cause trouble if you're a PS+ or future PS+ user. It has great controls with the two analog sticks, and the multiple touch features and whatnot, but there really isn't that much too it yet. If I were you, I would hold off until the PS4 releases to see if there is a brighter future for it.

    I have one, and I love it. I'm PS+ so loads of incentive there. Like the bloke above me stated, there isn't very much room on the Vita's harddrive, and I'm not sure if physical copies of games store their own data, but you'll probably need a memory card regardless. My only gripe in the month I've owned one is that memory cards are hella expensive.

    Thanks to Thunder for the platbar!!!

    I've never really liked Handhelds much myself. Last one I had was PSP and I only got it because some of my mates took it to school with them back in the day and I did the same for lunch breaks and that but I don't think its worth it when your at home. Good for long journeys for boredom which is the times I wish I had one but when I'm at home I just play on PS3.

    But for you it all depends on what you like to do. Do you go on long journeys plenty of times where you can play on it? Or do you like to play on handhelds at home when you don't want to play on PS3? But most importantly do you think you will like the games which are currently on the Vita?

    Eh honestly the Vita is great and all but not worth the price. You will enjoy it for the first 2 months and then it will become boring. Theres just not many exclusives on it and not worth investing $250 on it. I haven't touched my Vita for the past 2 months lol.
