Re: Vita vs Smartphone
I'd rather buy a Vita if the objective is gaming, because:
- I already own a smartphone,
- Phones suck at games for lack of controllers, and
- the Vita actually has real games, vs time-killers in the smartphone area.
One of the biggest misconceptions in the gaming industry is lumping up casual gaming with hardcore gaming. 7 years ago, many "experts" were announcing Nintendo as the undisputed winner of the console wars, as they outsold PS3 & xbox combined. Years later, most of those Wiis are now gathering dust, while the PS3s and 360s are still being played.
Same thing with the "social gaming" stuff, oh no they're the future! They'll take over Steam and the consoles! ... yet now Zynga's bleeding money because people are now bored of their games.
