The editors at EGM weren't too thrilled about it. They made some good points: One was that it just feels like a PS3 that you can take with you since it is trying to offer the same experiences. Since most people play games at home, there is no reason to play Uncharted on your little screen when you can play it on your big screen. Another thing they said that I thought was kind of funny was something like, "Don't even try to pass this game off as Uncharted when it clearly isn't." I'm not sure what he meant exactly, but it is interesting that he clearly thought it was unworthy of the Uncharted name.Those aren't good points. Firstly, why would anyone buy any handheld console when you can play games at home? To play games on the go, that's why, and the cross-platform saves and play mean the Vita should be a pretty seamless experience. Play at home, and then pick up and play the same game on the go.I would also expect a peripheral to allow you to play the Vita on your TV at home. There was a few for PSP, but the PSP's resolution didn't look so good blown up on TV. That shouldn't be an issue on the Vita.As for the criticisms of one game... Well crap. That's like playing Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs and using that experience to claim the 3DS sucks. It would be disappointing if Uncharted turned up bad on the Vita, but there's plenty of other games coming that are more interesting.And I'd bet my house on PS2 Classics.I think it is a good point. I play my games at home, portable or not. Sometimes I'll take my DS with me if I'm going to do some EV training in Pokemon or something, but if I'm getting into a deep game experience, I want to be in my room. As an example, I don't want to play Skyward Sword and then take it with me and (somehow) play when I'm on the go. If I'm not at home, it's probably for a reason and there are too many distractions. And then, if I'm at home, I'd surely want to play on the TV. The whole "portable PS3" idea just doesn't work. What I liked about the DS is that it had completely original games that you couldn't get anywhere else. Sure, the Vita will have original games as well, but that's not how it is being marketed. 3DS: 0173-1626-4750 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life.
