Confession time: I finally voted in this poll about 3 weeks ago, when the new Borderlands bundle with the Vita Slim was announced. I didn’t know whether or not I would like a handheld gaming device, but I did know that at least I wanted to give this one a try with the reportedly much better OLED screen of the original model. So I ordered one.
I got the Walking Dead bundle for the 4g memory card.
In the last three weeks I have:
Played through Uncharted Golden Abyss,
Tried and immediately deleted Smart As…,
Gotten brain-fucked by Gravity Rush.
The latter game really needs its own thread, it doesn’t deserve to only get mentions in a giant all purpose Vita thread.
Anyway, I’m appropriately impressed by the Vita’s screen, it really is beautiful. More than that though, I’m impressed with the quality of the dual analog sticks, which make aiming easier than with the Dualshocks 1,2,3. And I’m also impressed with the vita interface and features. Being able to pause anything (even in the middle of a loading screen) instantly at the touch of a button is a feature all consoles need to have. It’s amazing.
I hope more people pick this up like I did because of the tempting prospect of owning free games for it already because of PS+ membership. It really is a genius move, and I hope it works for Sony because this is a device that deserves success.
