I thought about getting rid of my Vita recently, but I couldn't do it. I love that little hand-held.

@Curlybobs I tried to sell mine about a year ago, but I wasn't happy with the price I was offered, so I kept it. I don't really play it though.

I can relate. I never use it. Firing it up for testing remote play with Dissidia last year is the last time I used it and the first time in a year or more. But I still keep it on the charger....I can't get rid of it, it was such a nice little machine even if it was seldom used outside the first year or two.

I mostly just check my vita every now and then to see if Minecraft is still updating.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Eh! My gameplay videos

I've used mine for at least 150 hours this year. 130 of that was Danganronpa V3, though.

I'm going to keep it and slowly work my way through my remaining digital library. Mostly on vacations, I imagine.

A shame to hear, honestly. I actually wanted to invest in one for what little games it had for me, but seeing more and more of the games I wanted on other systems made me want the system less.

Pretty much the only thing the PS Vita has for me right now are those digital PSP games, but even those aren't enough to make the Vita for me and Mega Man: Powered Up is pretty much the PSP game I'm interested in the most, though it isn't available digitally outside of Japan...

@StephenYap3 I haven't tried it myself so don't quote me on this, but I believe you can still get digital games onto the PSP, you just have to buy it on a computer from the Sony website first.

So if all you want are digital PSP games, you might as well save some money and buy a PSP instead of a Vita.

After spending some time with the both the fat and the slim models I have to admit that I prefer the slim model. Yes, you lose that awesome screen on the fat model, but the slim has the benefit of: 1 - being lighter, therefore being more comfortable for long play sessions. 2 - the rubber casing around the edge of the slim model makes the Vita easier to grip. 3 - the reduced size of the rear touch pad reduces the number of input mistakes for games that use it. 4 - the larger home, start, and select buttons are easier to locate and use.

Picked up Code:Realize Wintertide Miracles. It was 50% off at Gamestop, so I couldn't resist. I still lament how this wonderful portable lived its life. Great build quality, yet underappreciated.

It's a shame the Vita was just left to die, to be honest.
They could've cut down the price, like Nintendo did with their 3DS. But no, Sony had to be stubborn... 😒
I love collecting trophies on the go, but at this point I don't want to buy any more games, because the second my Vita dies, I'll be unable to play any of the games I'd purchased. (Unless I bought a second hand console for far too much.)

The Switch is its spiritual successor, I suppose...

Got the SD2Vita thingy working on mine. So I've got a 128GB microSD card running for a wayyy cheaper price than their annoying first part cards.

@Dezzy Been meaning to get round to doing that. Smooth process?

Yeah pretty much. If you ignore the fact that I forgot memory cards are highly brand-specific in terms of their quality. I bought just the cheapest thing on ebay I could find, and it stopped working within like 2 days. Once I brought a proper Sandisk card though, it worked fine.

@Dezzy did you take the same approach for the SD2Vita adapter? I haven't bought one yet, partly due to wariness about the quality, and just partly because my Vita is below my Switch and 3DS in terms of portable gaming priorities.

Well there are no official SD2Vita adapters. They're only made be these vague online tech distributors.
There are a few different versions of it though, they all look slightly different.
This the version I got. And it's running on the original fat vita:

I tend to agree with this. Back when it was newer, I always thought of the Vita as having a niche of being a portable system that could play lots of indie games, AAA ports, and weird anime games. And now the Switch does that too, and it also has a ton of exclusives, something the Vita lacked.

Not that I think the Switch is a replacement for the Vita (they have pretty different game libraries) but I do think the Vita is less exciting now that the Switch is around.

I bought a PS Vita Slim from Facebook marketplace. I love it. Forever grateful to have played Persona 4 Golden on it. More recently, Final Fantasy VIII.

I finally found my Vita's charging cable, so I'll finally be able to play Persona 4: Golden...in a few hours. That title was definitely on point, in my case...

I fire up my Vita from time to time but I only use it as my God of War 1 and 2 machine.

I have little games for it:
1. God of War collection
2. Minecraft
3. Injustice: Gods among us
4. Mortal Kombat IX

I will probably get around to buying just couple of games. I have never played any Persona games and I only hear good things about it but I am not a fan of Japanese weird stuff. What other games are there that are good for the Vita? Soul Sacrifice? Uncharted Golden Abyss?
