    I've decided to get a Vita even though I'm not particularly into anime, RPGs etc… a modest handful of mainstream games will keep me occupied for quite a while, and after that there's all the avenues modding opens up. I'm finding it's just easier to grab some time to play handheld than sit down by the TV with a console, so might as well get some 'proper' handheld stuff going 🙂

    I bought a brand new OLED Vita a few weeks ago for one reason: Metal Gear Solid HD. Granted, I have every iteration of MGS (I collect for the series), but being able to play MGS 2 and 3 on handheld with transfarring and trophy support on the PSN was something that I held off for years. I also picked up a few other physical games, such as Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir and Muramasa Rebirth. On another note, I was pleasantly surprised to also see that digital Vita games were still retailing on the Playstation Store in 2020, and that all of those monthly free Vita games via PlayStation Plus that I accumulated over the years were accessible.

    I don't plan on ever modding or hacking my Vita, as I have older consoles and won't need to bother with emulation for the physical games that I already have. But, the prices of those proprietary memory sticks are definitely ludicrous.

    I enjoyed my ps vita for variety of hunting games it had throughout its lifecycle (SSD, FW, God Eater series, Toukiden, Ragnarok).

    I have 100+ vita games, 100+psp games and about 2k 8,16 and 32 bit console games on my OG white 3g vita. With a fast 256gb sd card and sd2vita adapter you will have the perfect on the go machine!

    I have both models of the Vita and 101 physical games; with 50 digital that were either free via psn or discounted. It’s the best handheld of all time; the extensive library and exclusives make it a valued piece of hardware to own.

    You should probably mention some prices, because some of this stuff is expensive! That Hori case is like $300AUD..

    I've never had any interest in the Vita for anything other than retro emulators such as RetroArch for retroachievements. I have a PC for all of that so I don't really see any need for one. I've never really been that big on handheld comsoles which is partly the reason I haven't ever had one but that said I haven't really missed much by not having one.

    PS Vita is a underrated console, it's not so good as PSP, but the PS Vita still have good games and some interesting qualities.

    I consistently use my Vita and I got mine at launch. One of the best systems I ever bought.

    The biggest issue with the vita was the memory: maybe at that time, 200 dollars for 32 GB was a thing, but the console itself was 299; so not that smart as move, when SD micro cards were priced at 1/3rd of the vita cards.
    Power was an issue, considering it was between a PS2 and a PS3, in a time where portable console were not really that hot. Sony could have made the greatest machine of all if only would pour more power and resources in the Vita; to make it at least at the PS3 level.

    I bought cartridges for the games I wanted; which are games you can't find on PC or PS3/PS4; so the collection is not that expensive; but where the Vita shine is in emulation power. You can play already PSX and PSP games on it, but with modding enabled, you access to any system up to arcade and N64, which is awesome considering that the only other portable alternative is a phone with a grip controller or a small Chinese handheld (which is cheaper and the screen is smaller). IF only the Vita was able to play Dreamcast and N64 full speed, it would be even today the best retro-handheld ever made.

    To be fair, very few mobile devices beyond phones have Bluetooth audio. The PSP certainly didn't either.

    I still play with my Vita!
    Let's pretend we can't play Killzone Mercenary, Uncharted Golden Abyss, Little Big Planet, Assassins Creed liberation, Minecraft and Gravity Rush on it.
