    first of all i'm not looking for flame...
    just wanted your opinion for vita situation regarding to the game library...
    i mean me an eu gamer i already feel like being in the bottom of an unstable tower ready to fall down,and that's depressing condidering that i afforded 245€ totally for the vita (i know there are guys i here that payed a whole 1000 but anyway...)
    to point out the situation:
    -vita does not have sony support that i think is clear at this point

    -in eu some games just come in english only,some just on the psn or they don't come at all or even worse they're jap only

    -there is no hack at all on the horizon...

    -it has awesome games period.just how many of them are esclusive vita killer aaa+ app available in retail version throughout the world in all main languages?

    -i have picky taste and that doesn't help at all;hate games where you just shoot through out it (so call of duty and borderlands 2 are a no for me),dislike repeative games where you just racimolate exp points to just beat a dawm boss (not so keen to soul sacrifice,final fantasy,Y's),don't really like indie games (i mean isn't the quality like that of the previous generation Handheld?),don't like games with muppets (so no little big planet and tearaway for me) visual novel games unfortunaly are jap only...
    guess then how many games fulfill for me the requirements of the point above and of this point?just one.....gravity rush....

    so what's your opinion of the vita situation?

    You fucked up and bought a system which doesn't suit your tastes?

    The Vita is a weeaboo and indie device which will only suit a niche audience. Most will be apathetic towards it for those reasons. Some will love it for those reasons.

    let's see here, i have..

    Sly cooper: thieves in time
    Tearaway
    Lumines
    Touch my (tasty) katamari
    Gravity Rush
    Rayman Origins
    Killzone Mercenary
    Wipeout 2048
    Ninja Gaiden Sigma +
    Unit 13
    NFS Most Wanted

    That's my list of physical games, I wouldn't recommend all of them but rayman is nice, apparently so is the (sequel?) Rayman Legends.
    Lumines consumes your soul and you'll like it, Gravity Rush REALLY NICE, Wipeout it's ok, NFS meh, Ninja Gaiden didn't like it, Unit 13 wouldn't recommend it.
    I played KZ merc a couple of minutes and it was actually cool, wasn't expecting much.

    I am looking forward for Helldivers BIG TIME! And there's a lot of great indie games, i wasn't interested in the indie-scene at all but Hotline miami had me hooked like crack.

    I have more games, download only titles that are good fun, like guacamelee and super stardust delta.

    There are some good games on the vita, you just got to have some patience for new releases and look for the ones that suit you.

    Maybe you already have....

    EDIT
    I forgot something important... the coming new version of Abe's odyssey!
    There's a lot of fun in that game even if you have played the old PS1 version.

    It has games now, but it has a very poor future in the West for games that aren't regurgitated multi-platform indies and regurgitated ports and remakes. Then, what few new, fresh games it does get are too narrow, niche and too few and far in between to be satisfying to anyone but the most diehard fans.

    I enjoy my Vita, but once my backlog gets caught up I'll be using it a hell of a lot less than my 3DS.

    The vita has a good library of games if you never owned a PSP or PS1. Most PSP and PS1 games are available to download on PSN.

    As it is the case with the 3DS, except with the PSVita, you can actually play those games either by importing them or by downloading them using a Japanese PSN account. With the 3DS... not so much. :tpi:

    Aye, very good. But can I easily upload them from the vita to Gbatemp without having to connect the vita to my computer and move them onto the desktop and then upload those images to imgur and then link them here, whereas I can just snap a pic with my phone and upload it via tapatalk?

    I think not.

    Vita transferring via lan works surprisingly good, however even that need computer. With mobile I use dropbox and then use computer. That just looks really bad when there are really big images taken vertically from widescreen, being sideways and taking over half of whole pages heigh when vitas native resolution screenshots would've looked much better and taken much less space.

    Now actually looking at those images I can just say half of them can be bought also to other platforms including PS3 and PC. So even if there are games there's no reason to buy the system for those unless specifically wanting to play them on go.

    It has good games so it was good value for me. Persona 4 is just golden and Muramasa truly is a rebirth of the original Wii version.
