I got it half right anyway. I reserved MGS 5 then cancelled it to get farcry so I don't really care about a new one anymore; I don't have the money for these damn games and comics are an expensive habit. The next game I want is Dying Light, but I think there are some other games coming out that are also available on ps3/360. Still kinda want RE: HD just because I just want it. I think Silent Hills is coming out for my consoles, that sounds good.
I'll stick to it and repeat it as often as I like: as soon as nintendo releases a handheld with the graphics of the WiiU controller then I'd go broke buying it. With a worthwhile game list to boot. Don't be like the vita...have some decent games ready at launch and then just keep them coming.
It's exponentially much more expensive to develop games for the vita than it is the 3ds. I don't have any actual stats, I'll link it later.
But considering the cost to develop and the slow, if not, completely nonexistent adoption rate for the vita, studios don't want to take that financial risk to develop a game that in all likelihood will flop.
Look at sony even, they stop developing for the damn handheld.
YEAH I know, I know but still. My brother got a vita, even though I told him not too, and he NEVER plays it. He maybe played it 3 times in total and he's had it for years. I was like damn if you just wanted to throw away all that money, could've gave it to me. He did promise me his 3DS is he gets the XL but for now I'm good with my DS he gave me. He pitied me trying to play pokemon on my literally busted Gameboy sp lol.
I want to buy a vita. Coupled with a greater support for remote play/cross-buy/cross-play from the ps4, and larger studios announcing games for the handheld, 2015 looks like a great year for sony and the vita.
But until now, it's been largely a $200 indie hub for gaming.
Not worth it.
On the other hand, when i bought my 3ds xl and pokemon x, i wasn't even slightly disappointed. Best $240 i ever spent.
And monster hunter is great too.
