    A great thing! This would mean 9 GTA games playable on the Vita, and they say it has no game :P

    They fucked up, they fucked up really bad. It was such a big fuck up, Dreamcast memory cards were cheap compared to their fuck up.

    The Vita is an under-utilized powerhouse that should have had more games than it did.

    Had it launched with at least one included game and with enough storage for save files, it would be a completely different story.

    100 bucks memory cards, that to make things worse were worse than average sd cards, has to one one of Sony worst ideas ever.

    Just buy an SD2Vita :P
    Official memory cards are pretty much a scam. You pay around 100 bucks of 64GB maximum and those cards can even get corrupted and aren't as reliable as today's microsd. Just get a 4 to 8GB card as a backup and buy an SD2Vita.

    Got a 4 GB card; came with my used Vita when I got it.

    Just pointed out why the Vita ended being abandoned by Sony.

    I think he's alluding to the fact that this is one of the reasons the Vita failed. SD2Vita obviously didn't exist when Vita launched. If it had...well, Sony would have just released updates to kill it.

    By the way, let's hope that the executives and developers responsible for creating the Vita are no longer working in the gaming industry...because they were horrible.

    No the Vita itself is a pretty good piece of hardware software. But the guy who made those proprietary cards should indeed be away of the industry (i hope :/ )

    Anyone expecting to actually play this is going to be disappointed. The C&D letters from Take Two will already be in the post.

    Sadly yes, and their last one. Sony has no more interest in handhelds at the moment, but that may change given the success of the switch.

    In my opinion, Sony just needs to make another PSP that has LTE or 5G, AC or AX Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, a Snapdragon SoC with Vulkan support, 256GB of eMMC storage, an SD slot (or more proprietary Vita bullshit) for storage expansion, and about 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM. But hardware aside, they should make an SDK that makes it easy for the devs of AAA games to easily port those games to the system with minimal effort. This will have third party devs onboard.

    Im hoping for new handheld on the market from big company because Nintendo need competition. I love my Switch but Nintendo gets lazy (no Virtual console, shitty online service, Mario 3d all stars efford) because there is no other real console on handheld market (ok there are consoles like GPD etc but its not from Sony or Microsoft). I still cant belive why they do so much hurt for Vita, PSP was great success and Vita sure had enough potential to be even better.

    I'd wished they did port the PC version instead too but i'm assuming it was harder to do over the android shine/chromedome edition of the game.

    And as for the PC version, it's just typical Rockstar usually not giving a rat's ass about PC owners of the time
