    So Gamescom has been and gone, and Sony's conference had quite a lot of time focused on the Vita.
    Are you now more interested in the Vita? Less interested?
    Do you own one and are happy with the line up? Have you previously been on the fence but now with the upcoming PS4 remote play and indie avalanche of games coming, considering buying one?
    Let us know in the comments!

    Previous Week - Are you looking forward to Gamescom this week?
    Week 9 - Which company has the best online infrastructure?
    Week 8 - Which is better android or ios?
    Week 7 - Which August game release are you most looking forward to?
    Week 6 - Will you be buying GTA V?
    Week 5 - Will you buy a Gateway 3DS Flashcard?
    Week 4 - Which system has the best controller?
    Week 3 - Have you preordered a nextgen console yet?
    Week 2 - Now MS has backtracked, will you?
    Week 1 - Who will sell the most hardware next gen?

    If you have an idea for a poll you would like to see on the portal just send me a PM with PPOTW in the title and your questions and answers for the poll.

    Less because the memory cards prices are still too high.

    I'll say more now there's a price cut and Minecraft. If the port turns out to be good, I might pick up a vita with some other games the interested me in the past.

    Yeah, I'm still happy with my Vita. Finally got a cheaper 32GB card so I'm even more happier.

    I actually know surprisingly little of the vita in general and gamescom did nothing to change that (mainly as the only thing I can remember from it was something about the price and that matters little to me).
    That said unless it gains some transcendent copies of games I like I will probably stick to the "pick it up when it has finished its run" routine, maybe slightly sooner if it ends up with a good homebrew scene. Though looking back on it the PSP is mainly used to listen to music, audiobooks, podcasts and to be an ereader before I was given an old laptop that has enough grunt to run calibre.

    Yeah I have a vita as well. Bar none it is the best piece of portable hardware ever made to play games. With that said, I have found very few games that I will even buy on it and the ones I've bought, most I didn't even like. Honestly the only game I have bought on the system and liked is gravity rush.

    Bought my vita near launch and got my moneys worth ages ago.
    Had a lot of fun on it, and the thing was awesome to watch anime/movies on my billions of flights I had this summer.

    But I do hope some more people grab one and realize how awesome the thing is. My 3DS would go unused if not for the DS games I keep playing on it. I rarely play 3DS games.
    One thing people really need to stop crying about is memory cards. If you don't want to spend so much, get the cheapest one you can find and don't buy digital games. Its really that easy.
    Then once you realize the thing is really fun you can invest in a proper card and have even more fun with it. PSP and classic games look glorious on the vita.
    My 16gb card is plenty. I rarely have space issues. I have a ton of stuff crammed onto the thing too.

    ....Actually bought one the day before Gamescom so the announced price drop wasn't that welcome :lol: (Picked up the mega game pack for £170 though which is still a good deal)
    Watching the remote play in action at the Sony presentation was good (half the reason I bought the thing!), and the dark themed Mura-whatever it was called where you hold the little girl thing's hand, that looked great, but the big name announcement being Borderlands 2?! Come on.
    As a handheld competing against the 3DS, well it looked like they've given up that ghost at Gamescom, but as a companion to the PS4, and a sweet deal for Plus subscribers, it's a great purchase - were I using Gamescom as a decider whether to buy the thing or not though, I'd probably have passed (especially if PS4 remote play didn't appeal)

    I have a Vita and while it is a flop sales wise it's a very enjoyable device.
    I don't have that many games for it but it's good when you are traveling as you can watch videos and listen to music.
    Also PSP games are very cheap on PSN and they are great fun.

    If the price drop actually comes over here (as far as I know, it costs just as much as it always have here...) I'm interested. Now, I didn't follow gamescom and have no idea what was talked about except a price drop and minecraft.
    I want to play persona 4, that odd silent hill game and a few other games perhaps. I just find it too expensive for me at the moment, since I don't have any money at all Haha :D

    Nothing really changed. The vita was 199 Euro in many shops before the gamescon. So there is not really a price drop.
    They showed the ps4 remote play, but not in such a way that you really know how flawlessly it will work and if it is as comfortable as switching to the pad on the wii U.

    How can the majority of votes be "Less interested?" They are lowering the price, and making more games for it. "That makes me dislike it more!" I don't care if you had no interest before, and no interest now, but what part of any of this makes you want it less?

    I'm slightly more interested, but it's still not enough for me to warrant a purchase.

    I'm really not one for handhelds, so unless this thing starts dispensing assault rifles and candy bars, no change in policy was going to make it a "must buy" for me.

    Still, I'm glad to see Sony taking some action to help the Vita. It's long past due, but hey, at least it's something.

    Price drop is nice.

    Still not interested.
