What kind of potential did it have exactly?


Console gaming on the go. Games like Uncharted and Killzone showed that the Vita was capable of more than it got. Tbh, I have no regrets with purchasing a Vita day one and how it turned out to be.

You still have Remote play for that "console gaming on the go" thing.

For me, personally, remote play has been a horrible experience. There's notable amount of input lag and/or the connection tends to get lost whenever I end up moving to another room. Not to mention, console gaming on the go doesn't mean much if I'm can't play when there's no WiFi around.

I've never gotten remote play to work well, and, even if it did, as @gamezalv points out, the streaming requirement makes the portability practically pointless in the first place.

I'm happy with my Vita, but yeah, it could have been so much more than it turned out to be.

Thankfully, the Switch exists.

But you still have that option regardless of some technical issues you might experience so it's better than no such option at all.

At the end of the day, potential means absolutely nothing.

Nobody wanted that watered down stuff hence why didn't sold enough and nobody release more. instead console gaming in the go, you mean AAA filth in the go, because i played console games in the go in Vita, learn this, AAA are about the best graphics, most Vita users will prefer to play that stuff in actual consoles hence why failed to flourish.


The Vita could have worked as it was initially marketed by Sony but too many factors worked against it.

Honestly, I wouldn't have bothered with the Switch if it wasn't a portable system in the first place.

Being a Wii U and PS4 owner, I'd have waited a few years for the exclusives to really pile up if it was just another home console. Being able to play games like Okami HD, Valkyria Chronicles 4, REmake, Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8, etc. in a fully portable state, though? Hell yes! First system I ever bought at launch, and I don't regret it a bit.

I know they're controversial, but I also really like playing with the joycons when they're detached from the grip.

Even if it had been a boring home console, though, and I didn't care for most of Nintendo's franchises, I'd have purchased one eventually for SMT V. I'm so excited about that game.

Won't see the game for another 1-2 years but yeah pretty hyped too.
