Like every newly released system, I feel the Vita's currently in the "DOOOOOOOMED" stage where no one wants to push the thing to see if it has a chance. It seems like it's all about tearing it down instead of building it up, which I honestly don't understand considering it's such a comfortable handheld with a great button layout and beautiful OLED screen.
Listen, I'm not Sony fanboy, and I understand that it may not have a stellar library of titles, but the first year of every new system only sees a few or less truly "must have" titles. I'm currently sitting on 10 Vita games, all of which I've enjoyed, and 6 of which I'd say are "must have" titles for me.
I know, it's a tough time for handhelds with the iPhone and iPad out there offering on-the-go gaming for next to nothing, but quality on-the-go experiences are hard to find on the iPhone/iPad. You'll have a few here and there, but typically the controls are iffy and there's such a large amount of shovelware. I think this style of gaming has a place in the industry, but I'd rather it not succeed if it means the death of higher quality handheld gaming that's available on Nintendo and Sony handheld platforms.
While the Vita has a large hill to climb, I remember a time when Microsoft wasn't the top dog, Nintendo released their only massive failure the Virtual Boy, and Sony was at the top of the mountain. Things change as time goes by, but it seems like we're so fast to write something off sometimes, even when that something can turn into something incredible. I remember when people said the PS3 was dead in the water, as it's first year was plagued with a gaming drought, and the $599 price certainly didn't help things, but it's pulled through and offered great exclusive content.
Just give Vita a chance. What's the obsession with so many people wanting something so nicely built to fail?
