    I really wish Sony would make the Vita's UI uniform with PS4's UI. Like PS3 and PSP for example. Vita is in dire need of overhaul. IMO

      I do agree with you that PS3 and PSP XMB was a great way to organize a console. I really liked the XMB as well. PS4's Live Area is just a spiritual successor to the XMB. Vita's bubble UI? That's just a nasty bastard stepchild, an abomination by UI standards even at time of release in 2011/2012! LOL

      Yeah, don't agree with you on this one - the PS4 UI is crap for any sort of power user. Much worse than the Vita.

      But the argument was that Mobile was killing off handhelds. And that simply isn't the case for a "good and supported" platform. Regardless I do hope Sony tries again but seeing as how they ported everything to PS4 and PSVITA shares most of its would be exclusives they are just killing it off themselves.

      Exactly. That's why I'm not too sure if Sony would ever do another handheld. They themselves are really driving their own handheld into the ground by releasing all of it's exclusives on the PS4 as well as putting out even far better exclusives that can only be played on PS4.

      Mobile had a small impact on Vita's sales for sure, but not enough to ruin Vita. Sony cannibalized their own handheld. :(

      In fact it doesn't confirm anything, Vita was and is doing well in Japan so that could happen over there but not in the west, but if there is fait in Vita maybe Sony will replace it with a new handheld and do it better this time.

      Maybe, I'm sure nothing will happen because Sony only cares about quick cash cows like PS4.

      Online is optional for PS4 after initial setup. No "Always Online" required. ;)

      If you travel a whole lot, consider a laptop? Best solution for media consumption, getting work done, and gaming while on the go. :)

      Kyle is absolutely right. GameStop has been running shady business practices and high pressure sales every since I was just a teenager and visiting their stores. I'm in my early 30's now, and that company hasn't changed one bit. It's amazing they've stayed in business this long if you ask me.

      No doubt. Mass Effect: Infiltrator on iOS / Android was a great start to demonstrate a portable Mass Effect game's potential!

      I'd say get Bluepoint to do the ME Trilogy ports to Vita. They are one hella talented studio! I think they could pull it off. Just look at Metal Gear Solid HD Collection on Vita. ;)
