I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

How goes it GR crew? Been a while!

I have a quick and simple question. Is the PlayStation Vita worth the purchase? With summer coming up I have no time to justify buying the new consoles, I'll just be on the move far too much. Which has me thinking handheld until the fall, haven't owned one since the original Gameboy.

3DSxl is the far superior choice. Vita has some cool stuff too though.

The 3D aspect doesn't really jive with me, I'm guessing Nintendo has a better game selection though?

Yeah, I mean they're both just gaming machines. So it comes down to the library of titles available now, and the titles toward the future. Nintendo just wins those battles.

Vita does have a good (but far from complete) collection of PSP and PS1 games available for download, which is pretty awesome. I basically bought mine just to play FF9 and Tactics.

I would like to own a PS Vita but unfortunately there's no real games at all that I want to play. Uncharted: Golden Abyss is the only game I'm interested in.

At this stage, the 3Ds is superior in terms of a gaming library. You don't HAVE to use the 3D option either, but it's there.

P4G and Gravity Rush alone justify the purchase IMO.
