Gravity Rush is a great game! I loved using the motion controls to look through the vita screen like a little window into their world, and it makes me a little sad that the sequel never made it to vita.
I don't have the same problem with the headphones but I use the Hori remote play grip which adds a little more room at the bottom
I am in love with this D-Pad. It's tactile but low pressure. It rocks but doesn't require me to relocate my thumb. The size and motion are just perfect. I like it more than my saturn pad. The only thing that might beat it could be the neo geo pad, but those are expensive and I don't have one to talk about.
Right now is probably the best time to own one. The library has just about reached its conclusion, with a couple notable ones left to come out (Catherine comes to mind), so you can know for certain what you're getting.
I'm pretty pleased with mine, but I've modified it a lot. I wouldn't be nearly as happy if I couldn't use a micro SD, which took a long time for mod development to get there. It's my go to now for playing most emulated titles.
Great, I hope you enjoy playing, sushi!>>602
said, now is a great time to start playing Vita. The console is at it's sort of end of life period and there's games out there for everyone, have fun!>>603
Yeah! I have a GPD Win 2 which became my go-to emulation machine but my Vita is top for vita games and ps4 remote play.
I love the hell out of the Vita, compared to all the 3DS models it just feels so comfortable to use (outside of PS1 games like megaman legends). Games were also a blast, but its just a shame that Sony deliberately went out of their way to kill it. In 2016 even finding a Vita was a struggle, I cant imagine what it's like now.
I got a second hand vita this year when I went to japan so I can finally enjoy Gravity Rush and NFS Most Wanted (I've have the cards for like a year because my uncle couldn't find the system in america). There weren't any brand new models everywhere I checked.
I also got Toukiden Kiwami, Demon Gaze 2 and one of the vocaloid games. I intended to get that new Nippon Ichi game but my money…
Forgot to buy ps store cards, though, so I'll have to hack it or just buy games from the us store
I used to work in a store that sold Vitas, but had absolutely no games for it. Naturally, no Vita was ever sold. The display unit was powered off all the time too, so nobody could try it out.>>625
I love how there are so many sweet games on the Vita. Same with the Wii U. Underdog consoles and handhelds end up with lots of good quality games for some reason.
I had it before I gave it to my cousin. I really liked the hardware, but it didn't have a lot of great first party games imo. I like my 3DS better in general. I think it's def worth it if you can get it used and mod it though.
I really, really like mine, but it kind of makes me sad to use. The screen on my 1000 has some burn-in which is really visible on black screens. I kinda want a 2000 now because of it. Being able to use >>600
would be pretty cool too.
Recently, I've been streaming games from my PS3, since it's hacked to play every game in remote play (it also works on PSP too!). It's pretty hit or miss, but when it works, it's really nice. PC streaming via Moonlight works pretty well too.
Was thinking of developing applications for my CFW'd vita.
Here's some resources I found:>>https://pastebin.com/8mGXtC57>>https://vitasdk.org/
So far I have been having fun designing various obnoxious themes.
I think the partial redundancy of the controls and the touchscreen is really cool as a feature.
I am using SD2Vita with a 500GB microSD>>603
I tried playing PSP touhou port and the D-Pad didn't really do to well.
I'd be interested in getting into homebrew development. Do you have any applications in mind?
idk I can think of dozens of examples:
simple mod tracker that plays soundfonts
better calendar application:> – tons of notification options> – flexibly auto allocates tasks at free times based on priority> – provides things like a kanban board and burndown chart > – isn't slow and broken when you try to modify repeating events like the one already on the PS Vita> – import calendars from computer calendar files
ssh shell for remote terminal on the go
trading rpg game which utilizes bluetooth for trading & battles
augmented reality applications which detect objects and place 3d object in the environment
Programs which interface with hardware over USB
wait nvm there's already an irc client
also porting something like anki to the vita
Is the vita still worth buying?
Depends on the user.
For me it was since there were a lot of games I wanted for it.
If you find some games you want to play, then it would be worth buying. If you can justify spending money on entertainment.
They stopped producing them very recently, so I think now is the best time to get one. There's the full PS1/PSP/Vita library available, plus if you hack it you can install Retroarch for on the go retro gaming.
i mostly use mine to browse the internet. i don't have enough money to buy all my animu game bullshit.
Can I play Vita "backups" in the Vita? What do I need to have those .VPKs?
Yes. You can either download a homebrew application called "PKGJ", which will allow you to download games from your Vita, or you can go to a website called NoPayStation and download games through that instead. Both download from Sony's own servers, so it's just a matter of whichever you want to use.
I got gameboy advance, snes, mega drive and all the simpler ones working perfectly on the vita.
For the gameboy advance don't use retroarch use the emulator for the psp through adrenaline.
I used to play a ton of Freedom Wars on that thing. I miss that game so much. I was so bummed when I lost it.
