PS VIta disappointment receives backlash
Whenever a new product is launched there will also be varying reviews and this is just the same with the PS Vita, but it seems those who suggest that Sony’s latest device is a disappointment has been receiving some backlash. Okay, so we know there are one or two issues with the Vita but for the most part it’s a great handheld console, and it seems a number of gamers share this outlook and feel that the negative comments are unjust.
We have read a fair amount of reviews regarding the Vita and have even spent a few hours with one to get a greater understanding, but it’s like all things, reading a review is just down to personal opinion and it’s down to the consumer to decide if a new product is for them or not. We have seen a couple of reviews now that seem to be negative towards the PS Vita, one article suggests the Vita is “Doomed to fail” while another article says “Sony shafted us all.”
Looking into the first negative review it’s clear to see they are happy with the specs and what the Vita has to offer, but they are not so sure of its future because they believe we have seen it all before and Sony hasn’t gone the extra mile to think out of the box. In short they see this more of an evolution rather than a revolution and seem to have based their article on saying Sony has thrown everything they got at this whereas the iPhone has taken a more simplistic route when it comes to gaming, and it’s for this reason why a number of gamers will disagree with such a statement.
Some gamers will say the main reason why gaming will never overtake traditional consoles is due to the fact of the thousands of other apps on the market that are there just for you to have a laugh, but surely this isn’t true? Gaming on smartphones and tablets are getting more popular with each new model and rumors of the iPad 3 show that it will increase in the popular market, although it will be a few years before they have any hope of competing with whatever Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo has to offer – if they ever will.
The biggest argument of all from gamers is how articles such as the one above hasn’t even given the Vita a chance yet, it’s as if they are trying to predict the future in a market they know nothing about but would you agree with this?
As for the other article their entire argument is based on a personal experience with the PSP and while we can agree with him on some points, how can you condemn Sony for their previous actions? Having said that he has pointed out that the Vita is a great device and has so much going for it, but there are several issues that need to be ironed out before he goes ahead and buys one.
This is a very personal view and while a few gamers will agree the majority disagree and believe it’s the best purchase they have ever made, but where do you stand?
