There's an sd adapter that you can buy on ebay for 5$ that goes into the gamecard slot, set up some plugins there you go.
>>
>>416436715
It was severely mismanaged if nothing else. A combination of greed and paranoia over it getting hacked early led to Sony going overboard with security, which put a big dent in its public image and subsequently sales. Add to this Andrew House REEEEEEE'ing over it not killing the 3DS overnight and dropping all first-party support for it in just under 2 years.

A sad fate really, since there was a lot to like about the Vita. Particularly if you were into distinctively Japanese games.
>>
>>416436850
Vita has been fully hacked but the only way to do it is on certain firmwares, Sony has been cockblocking hacks real hard, there’s a new hack in the works but the guy who knows how to do it is waiting for the Vita to be absolutely dropped so he doesn’t have to make a new one. (No new firmware updates)

Yes. There’s a new exploit that lets you update to 3.65 so you can play newer games but it requires you to still be on 3.60 in the first place.

Oh, I didn't know these were a thing. I used one for my PSP. I'm currently saving for a Switch, but I'll see if I can buy a Vita down the line too

>>416437082
It’s a real shame that Vita died so soon, it could have been a much better platform for most handheld games than 3DS was. Losing MH was a massive blow on itself, another one that has left me scratching my head is the fact that Vita never got its own GTA game: considering the fact that LCS and VCS sold like hotcakes and attracted people to original PSP, I can only imagine what something like San Andreas Stories could have done to Vita.

But nope, Sony decided that Gravity Rush, Killzone, Uncharted and Tearaway were enough for a spearhead and then just abandoned it all when it saw that it wasn’t.
>>
>>416437727
They probably thought that Uncharted was a big enough name to sell consoles on itself, but the Vita iteration ended up being almost invisible on the market. They horribly misjudged the power of their initial lineup.

>>416437727
It’s telling that when people ask around for best Vita games, the answer is usually Persona 4 Golden even if you ask it in more mainstream sites without so heavy japanese game bias. You kind of know that the selection of ”big” games is bad, when something as borderline niche-y as a 80-hour JRPG with VN elements manages to reach that reputation.

And I’m not saying that P4G is bad, I actually like it, but it’s a bad situation for a console’s mass attractiveness if it doesn’t have any more obvious favorite picks available.
>>
>>416439315
Fair enough, but still not exactly true. While some have come to the switch a larger majority has just gone to the ps4 since its assumed that if you had a vita you'd probably have the home console as well.

>>416435345
That's too bad, the Vita was a solid handheld. Sony never really supported it.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-09-25/sony-vs-nintendo-playstation-boss-sees-limited-handheld-market

>Sony Corp.’s gaming chief Andrew House sees limited global potential for handheld gaming in the age of smartphones, saying that the company doesn’t have any concrete plans to take on Nintendo Co.’s Switch.

>“The Nintendo device is a hybrid device and that’s a different approach and strategy,” House said in an interview at last week’s Tokyo Game Show. “We have not seen that as being a huge market opportunity,” he said, referring to handheld gaming outside of Japan and Asia, where Sony still sells the Vita portable device.

>So far, though, House says he hasn’t seen any signs of the Switch having an impact on Sony’s sales of content or hardware.

>“That draws me to the conclusion that they’ve really been additive to the business in the last year or so,” House said. “The folks at Nintendo have their strategy and that’s great. We remain focused around a highly connected gaming experience and also coupled with having a great range of other entertainment experiences so you can reach multiple people on the big screen in the household.”

tl;dr: "We will pretend as hard as we can it wasn't our fault and that succeeding at handheld gaming is literally impossible."

That's always been the Vita's downside, it's more of a platform that would appeal to people who liked PS2/Wii hidden gems moreso than people who only play big name titles. Sony did try to support it in the beginning and games like Uncharted Golden Abyss, Tearaway and Killzone Mercenary definitely reflect that. But Sony was pretty misguided about what people wanted on a handheld or how to mass market it, and when Vita did find something of a niche with smaller Japanese devs they gave zero fucks and instead tried to push it as a PS4 add-on instead. Vita had its place, it was just never in the spotlight unfortunately.

>Bloodstained, an indie port
>7'scarlet, a VN
>Super Hydorah, an indie port

>The Lost Child, a JRPG port
Real stellar lineup you got there. I'm not saying the 3DS is doing any better but they're both on their last legs and it's stupid to pretend otherwise.
>>
>>416439664
>handheld can't compete with mobile
>meanwhile 3DS is still going strong and Switch is ramping up
Sounds to me like Sony is just lazy on this front. I mean, PS4 sold gangbusters, do they really expect us to believe they can't do the same to a handheld if they actually put the fucking effort in?
I'd love to see some of the big Sony IPs and devs on a handheld. They just need to fucking look at what Nintendo does and do the same kinds of things.
>>
>>416438337
The 3DS is dying, anyone that's telling you otherwise is delusional, games are coming out slower and it's losing relevancy. Nintendo are throwing it on life-support but it's basically a 20 year old lovable, family dog at this point, it had an amazing run and everyone fell in love but it's time is over.

The Vita is fucking dead and it never had that amazing run, sony took it out back with a shotgun of no support and blew it's brains out when it was just a pup, I don't think it's even been acknowledged for several E3 panels and NO ONE outside of the mod scene is talking about.

Maybe it's doing fine with weebs in japan but that's extremely niche from a global perspective.
>>
>>416439487
I think its more a testament to the sheer force of third parties that they carried the system as long as they did, even after Sony America said that it was dead the devs continued making games for so long and ended up cultivating a strong fanbase that would support them. It was something special and its a shame Sony will never let them have a place on their presentation stage when they have exclusives for the PS4 because it would cause every journo in the audience to have an aneurysm.
>>
>>416439682

Sony did support it pretty healthily up through the first half of 2014 or so. Uncharted, Killzone, Lumines, LittleBigPlanet, ModNation Racers, Resistance, and Wipeout all got Vita entries back in like 2012/2013, not to mention new IPs that debuted on Vita like Tearaway, Gravity Rush, Soul Sacrifice and Freedom Wars.

>>416439791
>But Sony was pretty misguided about what people wanted on a handheld or how to mass market it
The Switch eventually proved that people do want "console gaming experiences on the go", just not half-assed ad-hoc versions like Sony's first (and only) wave of first-party games at launch were. Add to that lack of marketing, memory cards and all that jazz, and sure, they went wrong about everything despite the basic idea having potential.
>>
>>416439830

Literally nobody would buy a handheld to play indieshit, ports and weebtrash on it.

2014. It basically only gets mentioned at TGS and at PSX by Gio Corsi now.
>>
>>416439976

Except Vita is utterly draconian when it comes to handling digital content. You can't even delete a game without deleting the save unless you've got PS+ for cloud saves. And don't even get me started on one account per Vita (so no cross-region games on the same handheld) or the STILL infamously inflated pricing of the memory cards. Digital sucks dick on Vita.

I went to Gamefaqs, to the list of all games on Vita and all games on 3DS. Vita has 27 pages of games, while the 3DS has 28. I'd say Vita did pretty good for a console that did not do so well.
>>
>>416440082

Oh, absolutely. Switch is everything Sony wanted the Vita to be, no doubt about that. Sony just did everything wrong with their attempt. A real shame, the hardware was pretty nice in a lot of ways but dumb decisions will do what they do.
>>
>>416440082
The memory card bullshit is the sole reason I never bought a Vita.
There were a few games I wanted, but having to pay that much for a small fucking memory card is the most absurd business decision I have ever fucking seen.

Switch/Vita have excellent indie support, ports have LONG been a history of handhelds (look at the fucking GBA), and handhelds have always been Japanese as fuck and their libraries frequently reflect this. You have no clue what you're talking about.

Ironically all of those are selling great on Switch, but you're absolutely right in that people don't buy it for that, they buy it for first-party exclusives. Guess what the Vita lacked aside from a token effort out of the gate.

Instead we've had lots of series that barely or never had a presence on Nintendo hardware already make the jump like Atelier, Disgaea and Valkyria Chronicles.

Why does anyone want sony to go handheld? PSP and Vita were shit, no top 5 game or even 10 are games from handheld devices and yes switch doesn't count because it's a console hybrid.

Sony are smart, they rely on third party through 4 gens and third party don't give 2 fucks about underpowered shit and before you say shit like the Switch even that's not getting everything hence the port begging

I hope you're joking anon, I like buying physical because if in an event where the game is banned or can be forcibly taken off every system (Silent Hill: PT), I can still play on the disk.

I still buy physical GBA cartridges to play on the original hardware, I could emulate them, but I just like owning it.

Remember the PSP got BTFO’d by hackers really early on, so Sony being Sony decided not only to make the memory cards proprietary to prevent adapters, but they constantly release “firmware updates” that just do happen to mess with the exploits.
>>
>>416440806

Far as I'm concerned, tying saves to the application is indefensible. Who else even does that? Who else makes save data management that much of a headache? Just delete the game and the save data persists, taking up mere KB, maybe MB, on your memory card. It's not hard, every other platform works that way. Sony just made it more roundabout on Vita due to piracy bullshit, I'm sure.

Mostly likely because devs have nowhere to run at this point.

And Valkyria is getting released way later on Switch.

I know Vita has been dead for a long time but this somehow hits me a lot harder than when Sony just stopped selling it in the US. It's like it was taken off life support and now it's dead for real. Guess it's time to look into custom firmware.

It was such a solid piece of hardware, and Sony criminally neglected it. In terms of the physical design and engineering I think it was possibly the best handheld of all time, but in terms of library it fell pretty far below the PSP.

They don't need to, PS4 has such large sales even tiny chunks on that install base does well for them. Why does AA games need any spotlight? That's their own marketing teams job especially when it has nothing to do with sony.

Now the question is how long will Japan keep it on life support.
PS+ is pulling Vita games in March 31st 2019 too for NA and EU. Physical game production ends March 31st 2019 too. No note from Japan on either.

With its current weekly sales and release schedule I don't see it lasting much later than summer 2019 even in Japan. There was a rumor a couple months back about Vita production ending soon in 2018 (I think in the summer, can't remember). The west already had production of units and memory cards end 2 years ago so the only place left would be Japan.

By that I mean don't do a VITA 2.0 and think they can make any game under the sun run on a the damn thing.
>Advertise the important features like remote play and cross buy/play which to me they didn't do enough with those two.

The thing is that if Sony were to make a new portable they would have to find a balance between the PS4/5 and it. I am sure they can do it but it will require quite the investment. I personally hope it happens because I will never get used to Nintendo and their approach to handhelds in terms of design.

Compared to the DS, the PSP was a massive failure.

Not to mention it had no games at all just like the Vita.
>>
>>416442698

A good deal of Vita games that actually tried were stuck in a weird limbo of feeling like pared down PS3 titles, but most of the stuff in the Vita's back half of life was low key enough to not be that hampered by the tech. Granted, most of those games are either first-person dungeon crawlers or visual novels, but even then Vita still had its share of games that were effectively portable versions of bigger titles like Deception IV, Dragon's Crown or Dead or Alive 5+. Not a whole lot of sacrifices made with the Vita versions of those titles.

>>416442841
I don't see them shutting down physical printing anytime soon because doing a Vita port for some things like VNs is very cheap and there's no performance problems, but hardware is getting very close to no longer being able to support current numbers.
Weekly sales this year are about 3k a week down from the 5k a week average of last year. Multiply that by 52 for weeks in a year and that's just over 150k Vitas sold for 2018 worldwide because Japan is the last place with them. They can't support dwindling hardware numbers forever. The PS+ games will stop eventually too. My guess is Japan will keep getting Vita PS+ games when the PS5 launches assuming that's in 2020.

>>416443209
Vita is in no way the same spot the PSP was in. Look at the weekly sales for hardware and software. Hardware is tanking hard, and software is still doing okay for some things, but the PS4 versions are selling quite a bit better than the Vita versions. Switch took off last year at launch and projects that would have gotten a Vita version a year or two ago are getting Switch and PS4 versions instead. Vita's future is not bright even in Japan and it won't last much longer. So the biggest issue is that Vita software will dry up in favor of those 2 other platforms before the sales of Vita games tank so low that its games are no longer profitable.
Also don't forget that part of the reason why PSP lasted so long in Japan was that the Vita did so poorly. It was actually Sony announcing the end of PSP production that made some projects move to Vita.

Metroid brand name doesn't mean much, despite the incredibly loud and toxic fanbase. Yes it would have sold better on switch, but 500k on 3DS, in it's death spiral, was a good success. It already guaranteed another traditional game.

This bears repeating since the 3DS is 100% dying and the few games it still gets are always overshadowed by the Switch with the exception of Pokémon USUM. Samus Returns was the highest-profile 3DS game since the Switch's launch (again, ignoring USUM), but it couldn't escape that reality, and it still sold well enough for Nintendo to report being satisfied with it.

>>416444238
Yeah. They only have 6 weeks left to submit any proposals for physical Vita games. After that, that's it.

Unless if I'm counting wrong, there are only 3 publishers even left for Vita: Xseed, Aksys and PQube.
The other ones either dropped the platform by passing on Vita versions of existing games or are no longer announcing Vita versions of future projects. They are: Koei Tecmo, NISA, Bamco, and Square Enix.
Then we have Atlus as a wild card since they have upcoming announcements like Catherine that have been confirmed, but no word on versions yet.

There honestly isn't much left to even bring over. Xseed has nothing new after the new Fate game, Aksys is just doing Otomes now and IF just announced they're moving all new Otomes over to Switch starting this summer and PQube was picking up niche fanservice stuff but even they are moving towards PC/PS4/Switch and are running out of Vita games to pick up. Besides maybe Bullet Girls Phantasia I can't think of any recent Vita games that also have a PS4 version they could even do.
>>

The Switch has sold more in it's first year than the 3DS...unless you mean Japan, in which case you just need to compare it to the rest of the current market instead. It's already killed the PS4.

It was doing okay at running multiplats for the most part when it was just PS3 and Vita, but right around when PS4 came out and they added a PS4 version to the mix just about all Vita multiplats suffered greatly.

Feel free to think that if you want but it doesn't change that pretty much everything wrong with the Vita was done by Sony's hand. People who like Vita typically like it very much in spite of Sony, not because of them.

That would be believable if we weren't talking about Gust here.

Gust doesn't know shit about optimization, it's a miracle they get anything running on Vita.

Vita still got ports of their PS4 games, none of which have gotten localized and all of which are reported to be quite dodgy. And considering I've seen how Nights of Azure 2 performs on Switch I'd believe it. I don't think BR or Atelier would matter that much because they're turn based but an action RPG's gotta run right, man.

Gust are definitely the exception in poor performance but it wasn't just Gust that made poor performing Vita games it was a problem across the board. The only games that performed well were exclusives and even then not all of them had stable framerates or ran at native res.

Piracy killed the later releases in the west and was why we went from having new Kingdom Hearts, God of War, Dissidia, and Peace Walker one year to absolutely nothing within a year of those releases. They did well under projections because people were pirating instead of buying.
>>
>>416447887

Everything has a price. The price paid for PSP piracy was the draconian anti-piracy measures of the Vita, made clearly in reaction to said rampant piracy.

>>416448963
The sooner they shut down the Vita factory the sooner they can repurpose the machinery for a Switch style cartridge.
>>
>>416448963

In light of the Switch's runaway success, possibly. They may have changed their tune in the last year and it would be prudent of them to retire Vita before going through with that.
>>
>>416448206
near the end of it life cycle. It was potential loss of some profit that scared of the devs, Not everyone buying the system was buying it just to pirate. Maybe if we are taking into consideration the most smallest of devs, then that would be a factor

>>416435345

>NISA has a history of shoddy localizations that BRICK consoles
>"Waaaah why isnt Sony sucking our dick?"
>>
>>416449117
Cancelling new projects or shifting them to other platforms near end of life is one thing. Cancelling new localizations of already existing games from Japan when there was no successor to shift focus to was absolutely due to poor software sales of their previous releases and those were so poor because of piracy. Localization costs are paltry compared to the costs to make a game from scratch.
>>
>>416448364
Im aware, what is im saying it was blown way out of proportion, and with the advent of a more online focused system, it would would have been easier to combat that with out the price fixed memory cards.

They very likely won't because if there's one thing Nintendo is good at it's making crazy innovative ideas for systems actually work like the Wii. They just can't innovate like them and when they try they downright fucking suck. To me it just seems that Sony plans games first and thinks up blueprints for a system later. Basically throwing things on it hoping it'll work.

Look, I like the PS4 and some of its games as much as the next guy but let's face it. Sony can only do HD graphics and VR and basically nothing else. Hell, it'd surprise me if Microsoft could make a better handheld than Sony.

>>416449269

Once Vita officially stop releasing updates the SD card adaptor will receive it's final update and you won't have to worry about proprietary memory anymore.

Although it would not surprise me if a future Switch Linux hack will receive some Vita emulation.

Physical on Vita's always been a bit of an odd duck. After about 2014 or so, you were generally better off just ordering them from Amazon or some other.

Hold on there, AT THE TIME that was a justifiable stance to hold. Let's not forget that the 3DS in its launch days was an absolute goddamn mess - $250 for shovelware, N64 ports, and a handful of fighters. Vita's launch lineup did legitimately look better while price matching the 3DS. It was looking good until Nintendo went full ham, slashed a third of the 3DS's price tag off, and dropped 2 Mario games (both of which have gone on to be runaway multimillion sellers) right before the Vita's launch. Had Vita launched worldwide in July 2011 instead of in Japan only in December, it very well could have curb stomped the 3DS if Nintendo did fuck all about it.
>>
>>416454765
I never mentioned any kind console war, but you did from the start and are constantly spouting it. If your sole reference level for the vita is "moe chronicles", which isn't the correct title of the game, it's clear how truthful you're being here. The gradual degradation of your english and continued hypocrisy is cute, too.

>Sony’s American and European branches “plan to end all Vita GameCard production by close of fiscal year 2018,”
Phew thought it was also the japanese branch. So doesn't matter to me since I only import JP games for the vita now.

Don't forget that MH Portable 3rd HD was supposed to be a Vita launch title as evidenced by Capcom listing it as one of their projects before Iwata made some backdoor deal and appeared in an exclusive MH event to announce that the future of MH will be a 3DS exclusive a week or two before the Vita launched.

Nintendo really did try their best to kill the Vita off in japan just so they won't have any competition.

That wasn't an attack on any console in particular, or any fanbase, it was an inquiry on you in particular with an ambiguous console. Did I hit a nerve with my statement though, and how you can't form a counterargument?

What arguments?
Those arguments? Those are not an arguments, that's vitafag crying for attention and being in denial as usual

No one cares about what Sony is and isn't doing with Vita short of ending its production. Sony has been the worst thing for the Vita for pretty much its entire lifespan.

Playstation is Love, Playstation is Vita. I still have my white Vita, despite being jailbroke & using a 4GB mem card... I think it's time to go to Amazon for that high-cap card I needed.

That someone actually can have Vita and not be able to say much good about it, cause it's dead

Dying. On its deathbed. The pulse is fading. But not quite "dead". Probably for real dead by this time next year, I'd wager.

The thing is, Sony only cares about graphics. Not even performance, just graphics. That is what sells games on the PS4 and the PS4 itself. Gameplay, music, story, etc can be good or bad, it doesn't matter to them. They just shove visual fidelity down everyone's throats, and sell boatloads (even though PC is the place to be for visuals, it's difficult for casuals to do the rather simple PC thing). Handhelds literally can't be better than home systems for visuals, so any "support" Sony sould give their handhelds will ALWAYS be a halfassed spinoff title or something they don't really believe in.
>>
>>416456739

again, ports and shovelware of compile heart quality, what there other vita releases again. Vita is okayish for those who don't have PS4, I already said that. Mostly thanks to Bamco tho

Unless I am mistaken, the Switch has outsold both the Vita and the WiiU, and has only been out a year.
>>
>>416457376

Yes, but that's not really what he's saying. The Switch, as a device, is like a combination of WiiU's better ideas and a realization of what Sony wanted Vita to be.
>>
>>416453649
Anon, it lost first party support about what 1 year in? It's been dying long before it was hacked.

lol, good joke. But seriously, sad to see the Vita be so worthless.
>>
>>416457519

More like 3 1/2. Sony's absolute last efforts to give half a fuck came out sometime in 2015. But in 2013/14, things were still going okay enough. Slower than 2012 but they hadn't given up just yet.
>>
>>416457287
Subjective opinion on quality is not indicative of its lifespan in this context. I'm sorry if all you can do is resort to the same parroted /v/ermin arguments to save face, but thanks for proving my point.
>>
>>416457518
Ah, I misread it, then. My mistake.

The WiiU and Vita failing are fucking tragedies. Really sucks, glad to see the Switch will probably keep the handheld market alive, and is giving WiiU games another shot.

All I want is Fatal Frame 5 with gyro camera aiming and Twilight Princess HD. I'm good on WiiU ports beyond those 2.
>>
>>416457957

Not that anon but I was given a code for that and it was okay, like a 7/10. I've never played another Uncharted game, but I'd rather play Tomb Raider nonetheless.
>>
>>416457842
Looking at the upcoming lists, there's a pretty wide gap. The Wii has 1 upcoming game that's TBA and the WiiU has 4, all TBA. Vita has 24. Not that it's very comparable to the current-gen systems anyway, but it's not a very accurate comparison.
>>
>>416453475
This! Vita is EASILY selling 150 consoles per week, VGChartz should be ashamed at misleading people like this.
>>
>>416458141
So in other words you're in clear denial. You say that the mere act of getting games regardless of quality or quantity is evidence of a system being alive yet at the same time focus more on the quantity when it goes against your argument.

You might want to also stop looking at IGN because it didn't list the other 10 shovelware titles coming to the Wii U.

Oh and it's worth noting that some of those games are actually going to be physical releases rather than just digital unlike the Vita.
>>
>>416458818
What does being alive even means to you? if the console receives official licensed games it is still alive regardless if people still cares or not.

sure, 3D games look even better on Vita, but I just couldn't get over what Vita does to 2D games
that sucked cause initially when I bought Vita I thought it'll replace my PSP with dead battery
but no, years later and I'm playing on my PSP while it's plugged into the wall, while vita is left discharged elsewhere to gather dust
>>
>>416459080
>if the console receives official licensed games it is still alive regardless if people still cares or not.
Yeah no, if the only games it's receiving are shovelware titles then it's not alive by any means.

Doesn't PSP's resolution scale perfectly with Vita's? If I recall correctly Vita's resolution is exactly double that of PSP's.

yeah, it works for aspect ratio and for 3D games, but I found 2D games looking way blurrier in the end, regardless of bilinear filtering settings
at least FF Tactics and Disgaea (games I tested with) just relied on pixel perfect screen I'd say to make them work as a whole visually.
text becomes hard to read, UI looks worse, sprties become blurry. Maybe I just being way too picky, but I just couldn't really play at least those PSP games on Vita
here is shitty photo attempt on comparison I made awhile ago, I hope it'll help to see my point

>>416459712

Every console is dead because everything is shit.

>>416459992

It's definitely brighter but I don't know about blurrier. Whatever, I never actually owned a PSP myself but I did play Trails in the Sky, Oath in Felghana and Ys I&Ii Chronicles on Vita and I thought they looked really nice. No idea what they look like on PSP, though.
>>
>>416460159
well photo is just meh, I don't have any proper camera. It does look blurrier IRL, to me at least. Low res screens really helped to give 2D games more crispiness.
Of course if you are not used to PSP and don't have it side by side - I doubt you'll see any issues.
I think I personally just really damn nitpicky about this.
>>
Long live Vita.
