I like playing video games, although not really an hard core one but enjoy it from time to time.

I got $200 worth gift cards to amazon . . . thinking of getting a PS Vita . . ..


is it worth getting one?

I currently own the older PSP, Xbox 360, PS2 and 3DS

I would have hesitated to recommend a PS Vita back when it launched, but I'm more comfortable recommending one now. I bought one nearly a year ago and I'm quite happy with the purchase.

There are quite a few good games for it now, though it's still not on the level of the Nintendo 3DS when it comes to *system seller* type games, IMO.

If you end up buying one and you're an RPG fan, I definitely recommend Persona 4 Golden. Other games that I liked are Gravity Rush and Muramasa: Rebirth.

EDIT:

I see (on your profile) that you like Final Fantasy X. The Vita is going to get Final Fantasy X and X-2 early 2014 as HD remakes so that may interest you as well.

Away back, they announced that CR was doing a client for the Vita... I don't know if that's still going forward or not.

I got the Vita when it released and love it. I have Persona 4 Golden, Metal Gear Collection and Dragon's Crown and recommend all three. Gravity Rush is also another great game. Also, if you have any digital copies of your PSP games, they'll work on the Vita.

The game persona 4 golden is a good enough reason to buy the vita. The game based of the anime is a perfect JRPG with good elements of school life added with an interesting story to unravel and great team decision based combat. There are a few other good japanese titles on the line so if you enjoy anime related games i think the vita will be a good choice for you.

Hi there. I'm closing this because starting new threads requesting advice is against CR's site rules (they are considered "personal" or "help" threads). It looks like you might be all set for now since you've received some answers, but if you want more advice (now or in the future) please ask in The General Help/Advice Thread

In this case you may also want to browse the discussion threads in the Console Gaming forum; there are a few PS Vita threads there, including these two:
