I'm sorry if this post is a bit janky and lacking in context, it was originally going to be a reply to a comment in another thread but I though hey why not make a topic on it. I've noticed a lot of resentment towards Vita when Sony mentions it. People on Twitter saying any mention of Vita at E3 is a "waste", people in the PS Blog jumping on people and attacking complaining about the lack of a Vita version for new game announcements (I've seen the term "vitawhiners" thrown around), the popular opinion on YouTube about the Vita is that it's dead. It seems like the only people who actually support the Vita are sites like this and strangely enough, IGN and Kinda Funny games (at least in podcasts). Podcasts I listen to like the Game Informer Show, and Rebel FM, often show disgust toward the Vita and sometimes even go so far as to recommend an iPad or 3DS over the Vita. Whenever a feature of is announced to be removed from the Vita (Google Maps, Facebook), which is in most cases a positive for the system (less bloat = more resources for devs), people use the comments sections of these articles, or share them on social media/forums and use it as an opportunity to speak out about how dead the Vita is (yeah guys, continued software support totally means it's dead, guys!). There's videos like Extra Credits' "Why The Vita Failed", which was published in early 2014 when the Vita was going strong with tens and tens of localisation announcements and high-profile indie games. This isn't the only example and when you actually watch videos like this, they phrase it as if indie games "don't count" and localisations don't exist and go ahead to cite the 3DS' first party support as a "good example", where in reality the Vita is absolutely drowning in new games and the 3DS gets a trickle of maybe 3-5 decent games in a year. Ok, steering back away from console war territory again; Why is the Vita seen this way? Sony tried to re-market the Vita with the Slim, the public spat on them for it. The same happened with the Vita TV before Sony downgraded it to a PS4 accessory. Yes there was a few missteps early on, but was it really enough to warrant all this seething hate? tl;dr why ppl hate duh viter?
