In which world is 81 Million Sold units considered a Failure :D the PSP Go is still a part of the PSP Family i mean.

What emulator do you used to Play in psp go? Its look like can do full screen. I have an emulator but can't do full srceen while praying.

Either you don't really know why it failed or you're covering the truth about it. The PS Vita failed because the sd cards for it were way too expensive and people had no choice but to get Sonys when there were other sd cards that were cheap with plenty of space

It's just not successful in America. Japanese games tend not to get too popular in America.

There are still people making games for the vita can people stop saying they failed (well it kinda did) or saying that it’s dead

I own a vita and failure was never the issue, the real issue here was and is the bunch of picky cry babies that complain about everything. news flash, every console out there has a flaw. You won't find perfection! Its a beautiful handheld and soon I'll be purchasing the old model before prices sky rocket.

I still rock my Vita daily. It's pretty much my main console. Eventually i'll get a switch but I just don't really need one yet. I'm one of those people that get consoles late in their lives (when they're dirt cheap).....

And because of these failures Sonya is abandoning completely the handheld console market. They have surrendered to the Big N.

Funny isn't it both are said they failed - especially the Vita, but just look at the retro wave now, I mean Nintendo Switch has more, retro and ports than new games it self, really sorry for the Vita

In psvita with cfw you can oc boost framerate to 30 fps 90% of all games. //sry for my eng
A PS Vita with h-encore or Henkaku Enso is great. I hate the rear touchpad on my old model Vita though, it's to big, i hit it accidently which is super annoying. I guess i will get a decent cover once i've got some money left and a bigger microSD for my SD2Vita. A Vita is pretty cheap nowadays and if you install h-encore and get a cheap SD2Vita adapter it's amazing for PSX, PSP and PS Vita games aswell as older emulators.

If u own a ps4 getting a vita is a must its so cool to play your games on the palms of your hand.

when they told me i cant use my psp games on pspgo and i have to rebuy everything, i know psp was going to die. after years, they told me again i have to buy the same game again to play it on psvita, i know vita is going to die.

PSP Go was amazingly stupid. It was slightly more complicated than players 'wanting discs.' As an avid PSP player, I was a baked in customer for the Go, but why would I REPURCHASE digital licenses to play on the PSP Go, when I had a surplus of games on UMD. And as mentioned, the UMDs can't be played on the Go. Obviously, purchasing a redundant gaming device that requires purchasing redundant licenses would have been astonishingly wasteful. So the baked in customer base (in the United States, anyway) was not so baked in after the numbers, unless the individual player wanted to convert to digital licenses. The 16GB on board memory was great, too bad they ditched that for proprietary memory cards in the Vita.

I just bought a psvita with sd2vita adapter 2 days back and modded it to the core... I havent touched my switch since then...

Too bad the 360 sold more than the ps3 in overall sales and that's counting thie failure to sell in Japan, now u know the ps3 got their asses handed to them if the 360 beat them in sales while in japan/overseas ps3 sold more, take that sony fans lmao. On another note, it's funny how sony fans love to talk about sales but the vita flopped and nobody talks about that and if they do its always an excuse. Sales really dont mean squat to an extent, its all about the quality and games. The xbox was way better than the ps2 but the ps2 outsold it for obvious reasons brand recognition. Since sony fans are caught up on sales i guess the wii is better than the ps3 because it sold way more lmao sony even went as far as to come out with the ps move to make their own wii system and that failed lmao ill be waiting for a come back by sony fans on this one, they have the best excuses lmao waiting.....

People keep using the rise of smartphones is what caused the vita to fail but that is not true, fans will find any excuse for sony and its a shame really. The vita failed because first off the should've kept the psp name, secondly u couldn't remove the battery easily, third: overly expensive sony exclusive memory cards with no third party memory cards u could use, fourth: false advertisement about being able to play your ps3 games on the go, five: allowing off brand companies with no experience to handle your big 1st and 2nd party games and lastly 6: no commercials for the vita i believe its called advertising smh thats why it failed. The 3ds and switch are selling wonderful so dont blame the rise of smartphones because if that were true the 3ds and the switch wouldve failed
red crimson102 (1 month ago)
I kinda wish i kept my psp go, now i have to by a used one on amazon. I actually didnt like the go at the time because of the lack of micro sd card with huge giga bites and not to mention the screen was a little smaller and the system was uncomfortable and small to hold in my hand

PSP is still one of the best systems you can buy in 2018. Jailbreak and mod them. My PSP3001 has over 300 PS1 games, 100 PSP games, and thousands of SNES GBA NES Genesis and GB games. The golden era of RPG’s. Get one and watch TechJames on You Tube to learn how to do it.

Should i buy mobile phone or psp or ps vita for gaming??
Steamedvegetable (1 month ago)
I’m confused? I swear I watched a video where someone could barely leave their living room without the vita disconnecting from their ps4, but he says his vita is still connected to his ps4 hundreds of miles away? Maybe I’m confusing it with the psp, but if vita can stay connected to your ps4 miles away then I’m 100% more interested

I have the original PSP and a DS Lite. But I didn't bother upgrading to a 3DS or a Vita. As of right now, my Surface Pro 3 is my current hand held. Back then I wanted to get a Vita over a 3DS but what killed it for me was the fact that the Vita had their own SD cards, and they were expensive. Not to mention that the Vita lack Final Fantasy Crisis Core (one of my favorite PSP games) for download from the PS Store. And the most sad part is that the Vita doesn't have a port of GTA San Andreas but my Surface does and that's not even a video game console. Aside from that I do look forward to getting a Switch because it fixes the problems I had with the 3DS and Vita. Not to mention that it's hardware gives me a Surface Pro vibe

Psp go never failed
Geo Belmont (1 month ago)
the psp go is the best to softmod, the in built flash memory loads psp games far faster, and if you get an m2 card adaptor for micro sd, you can put emulators and games for them on that. i've got emulators on the card and translated japanese psp games on the in built memory, it works great. oh, but look for a grip

Hack your vita and you never gonna throw that thing away. Hacking it opens sooo many doors. Great video ;)
SVTsupercharged (1 month ago)
The original PSP is still the best handheld of modern times. Just the amount of things you can do on it is amazing. Movies, games, emulators etc. You can also change the shell rather easily and customize it to your liking.

Remote play is not something I'd use seriously. The image often has tears and artifacts. The button inputs are slightly delayed. Most games weren't made with remote play in mind. Buttons like aim and shoot are assigned to the front touch screen. You can't mitigate this issue even if you bought a remote play grip.

So I've been trying to decide which one would be the best for me . I want the old school games, so my question is the psp go the way to go or is the vita better? I just want my old school games from my childhood on the go. Or is there a better option?

Yeah. Vita is MUCH more relevant now than when it was first launched. Much. Hehehe. So glad i'm having it now. Literally ALL the PSX, PSP and PS Vita games I have ever wanted, done. And even some PS3 and PS4 games, via remote. Muahahaha....

The PS Vita and PS4 synchronicity is honestly beyond the switch, and i love the switch. But, the tablet as a console is what makes the switch only $100 more than the new 3ds xl. still, opportunity lost.

Did you know sony made the handheld/console hybrid first, how you wonder the pspgo of course. When you pair it to a ps3 ds3 controller and get the component wire to the pspgo it becomes a mini home console, dare I say nintendont took their idea foul if u ask me.

I miss my PSP GO. I let a friend borrow it and he left it at a friend's house. They were moving and somehow it got pawned off. I was mad at him for a while but, I don't hold grudges for long. I wonder if it's worth buying another one used.
