Whatever man, I'm not into the mood for fanboy fights with no reason at all.
I haven't fanboyed the Vita in the slightest and its pretty damn sad that you're calling me one considering I've very openly spoke of the Vita's shortcomings and never professed it to be the greatest thing ever. The underlying point I have been making through every word I type is that the Vita is a fine console worth owning except in extremely particular situations. I.E. I wouldn't recommend a parent buying a Vita for their kid and in fact advise the 3DS. The Vita has been going hard for the kids market this past year though, so I could sing a different tune Q4 2015.
It's as you say it is. Vita has a better library than the other consoles available, has better hardware specs and it's actually the best system to own.
I didn't say those things. In fact, I even said it wouldn't likely beat the PS3's, but by all means avoid a discussion by being a drama queen. Very mature.
You've won the world and saved the universe. Congrats.
I never said the Vita was a bad device.
I never said you did, I replied to various points you brought up about it.
I said it was a lesser one compared to others spec-wise or collection-wise, and up to a point you agree with those statements.
I wholly agree with the former point it is lower specs-wise and I never once attempted to contest that fact in any way, shape, or form,
On the second point, yes, I do agree up to a point. I fully acknowledge the PS3 has a better library at the moment than the Vita, but I will repeat that its not really something to be unexpected considering the massive age gap. The 10 year old device should have more games than the 3 year old device. I don't believe the Vita is far off of it and there's a great chance that if the PS4 puts even more Vitas into people's hands - as it has been doing since release - that the Vita can actually surpass the PS3. Did you know that through their first three years the Vita has more games released and more First Party support than the PS3?
You yourself mentioned that we won't be seeing many more western AAA titles on it - and that IS a reason for many people to prefer something else.
Sure, but that sure as hell hasn't been a single contention of yours at any point in this thread.
Although I do like Asian stuff, and little and obscure indie games, not all people share our sensibilities.
I'm not really big on Asian games, though I'm not opposed to most of them. I'm certainly quite fond of Indies though as they do comprise the majority of my library.
There are those who want their consoles for titles like Call of Duty, Halo, "The Big Western Ones", and you can't deny that PS Vita lacks heavily in that department.
I deny it lacks heavily as I have posted quite a few Western AAAs in this thread and surely didn't mention them all, but I would agree as I have stated elsewhere that the future looks bleak for many more of them.
