    hi im new to the sony community i bought a ps2 with my own money and my dad has a ps1 on the basement but thats about for sony devices in the house i really have a mixed bag of consoles i have a wii,wii u, xbox 360, pc, 3ds (these have accumulated over the years) so i love my 3ds i like the great Pokemon games and stuff but I've been thinking a lot about they sony side and for a handheld and i am considering the vita. the reason i dont want to get it is bc the Nintendo switch is coming out and i really dont want my parents to pay for a pre-paid card for psn when they already pay the phone bill and for Xbox live. im so lost right now i dont know what to do any and i mean ANY options will be appreciated

    Get a ps4 (not pro) or wait for the switch.

    I'd be awfully tempted to just wait on the switch at this point. you could also check out a used PSP and get it hacked and check out all the PSP catalogue, which is huge, varied and great

    Depends on the games you want. If you want the PS4 exclusives, then get a PS4. If you want the upcoming Nintendo games, save up for the Switch. You could buy anything you want. Just know what games you want to play first. We can't play 'em all. Tried it. haha.

    Like some people said, its up to your preference.

    BUT!

    Let me hit you with a pro and cons list.

    Ps4
    Pros:
    Great exclusives.
    Good quality.
    Cons:
    Not much games for that console.
    You have to pay for online.

    PsVita:
    Good exclusives(not so great though).
    Good framerate and quality.
    Can be hacked and used as a very strong emulator device.
    Cons:
    Barely any games in that console.
    Barely any online interaction in games.
    Price is high for console and games.

    Switch:
    (I cant make a pro and cons list with a co sole thats not even released...sorry )

    @Small Kat Only the TS can answer his own question. Depends on what games he's going to play with and whether if he's going portable or not.

    you can probably find a psp 2000, or a psp go for $50 or less. have it hacked in 10 minutes or less, and then browse thru the hundreds of good games available for it (not including all the SNES and PS1 games you can play on it as well)
