Why buy a PS Vita when better versions are en route?

Ok, I am SUPER excited for the PS Vita. I don't own a PS3 and will not be able to "transfar" but well, who cares. I am stoked for this device. The fact that I can possibly play older PS1/PS2 games, all the PSN stuff, as well as iOS / Android games on it, whichever it is, is amazing.

I have no interest at all in owning a cellphone. I will definitely not but a smart phone ever, because from what I've seen most people with smart phones become stupider themselves, because the phone now does all the thinking for them. The fact that I can play games on a telephone does not excite me in the least, but those same games available on PS Vita, as well as high budget sweet PS Vita games, man, that is exciting. There is also the fact that there is a new cellphone / smart phone available every month which is more powerful than the previous. If I want to have the latest tech, I gotta buy one per month basically. Not happening. Imagine your Xbox 360 or PS3 had a new more powerful model each month, but when you buy one you also have to have a 2-3 year contract.. You would always feel like you can never have "The Best".

So the Vita is about a month away right. Time to start saving up, yes? Actually.. no. It's not. Not according to SONY!?

If you see the link above, you will see that they are already talking about the next PS Vita design. One that will most likely be far superior to the release Vita. So, I will not be buying a PS Vita as I had been planning for over a year. I will wait until later models come out.

But wait a second.. if nobody buys the 1st release of the Vita will they still release the better model later? I have no idea. But why would anyone in their right mind buy it now, when they are already talking about the next model and IT ISN"T EVEN OUT YET HERE!.

Sony, I glad you want to make it better and better.. but maybe you should have waited a while to mention this, like say maybe a month or two after the release of the version 1.0 or whatever it is. I am an exclusive Xbox 360 gamer. I actually HATE the PS3, and will never buy one ever. But damn Sony, you have me jumping for joy at the thought of the PS Vita. I am not even a big handheld gamer but this device is like a dream come true for me.

.. At least it was until Sony talked me out of buying their product, and that I should wait for the real version later..

About Skid Row Trashone of us since 11:36 AM on 08.24.2011

Hi, my name is Skid Row Trash. I have been gaming and creating add-ons and mods for games since I was 11. I'm 30 now, and I still love gaming. My first gaming system was a NES, followed by a Sega Genesis. After that, I got the Sega CD. I think I am one of the few that actually enjoyed the hell out of that system. I had to replace my Sega Genesis once because of problems, and had to replace my Sega CD 3 times, and repair it once. My first computer ever was a 386 with a huge 40mb hard drive, dos, and eventually windows. Started out playing games like wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Commander Keen, Blake Stone, and the list really is endless.. Civ 1..

After this I got a SNES. What a fun system. This was soon after followed by a Nintendo 64, and eventually a PS1 and Gamecube. I had to exchange my PS1 once because it broke. After that I had a PS2, and an Xbox. I loved both those systems so much. I had to replace my PS2 3 times, and my Xbox 3 times due to hardware problems.

These days, I am gaming on Xbox 360, and PC. I don't bother with PS anymore because I have large hands and their analog sticks are way too close. I find both thumbs fighting each when trying to play anything on a playstation these days and much prefer the improved analog stick setup that Xbox 360 has.

I am currently on my 6th Xbox 360, and have Kinect as well.

My first one died from disc tray problems.
My second one I had Nyko Intercooler which actually melted into my xbox 360 and the 2 seperate things became 1 single entity.
My 3rd Xbox was a red ring of death
my 4th Xbox eventually wouldn't even turn on.
my 5th xbox still sorta works, but the disk tray takes like 40 tries to open and takes more and more time each attempt. Also when the door is closed it things the door is open, and thus I can't launch any games.
my 6th Xbox 360 was to replace my last one, but at the same time I wanted to have the most recent so I got a kinect package. Also, this is the first time I have had the ability to use HDMI with my Xbox 360, because all 5 xboxes I had before they kept sending me old units with only Component video.

anyways, I am a real big time gamer and like to try all games (except for sports because well.. sports are weak).
