It's totally worth it for Persona 4: Golden. Persona 4 was probably the best JRPG I've ever played, very solid game play, great story, amazing characters, music and art, and the Vita version only adds more to what was an already great game. c:
If you already have those games, then no. You shouldn't buy a system for games that are essentially director's cuts. However if want other reasons to buy it, there's Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward, Little Big Planet PS Vita, and Rayman Origins (again if you don't have it on other systems).
I would shit on this thread with my negative opinion on both of these franchises, but I won't. I DO own a Vita and I can say that it doesn't have a lot of games because 3rd party devs don't want to risk developing for it. I can't remember the reason why. I think because of all of Sony's proprietary bullshit riddled throughout the system.
So if you're the person who doesn't believe in "killer apps", games you buy a system for because you KNOW 100% you'll love it and play it all the time, do not purchase the system. I bought a Vita day one because I'm a die hard WipEout fan and I still play my copy of WipEout 2048 more than my Wii and 3DS combined. It's still the only I've had since February 22nd, the launch date. Never gets old. Only buy a Vita if you will play those games relentlessly.
Well, more it depends on how many other games one intends to get. If someone says they had a few MAIN reasons to get something, but would get others, that obviously makes sense. But I know some people who literally got dses, psps and wiis and clocked out with like 3-4 (and some of them unplayed) games for each of them because they simply didn't consider them systems worth looking any further into.
I know one person who got a ds SOLELY for dawn of sorrow. He didn't even halfassedly play anything else on it except a few times multiplayer. He also got a psp for like one game.
Of course, he had rich relatives who bought him shit so in context it's not like it costed HIM anything. But it's still a bit wasteful.
...To be fair, if I didn't know anyone who had one, I might have gotten a 3ds even if all that might come out for it that I really wanted was SMTIV. but you can't NOT play SMTIV.
You're talking to someone who tends to get every console because of one game. XD
Though I do tend to check news and blogs to find other games worth buying and trying. Normally ends with a whole bunch of games per console of which I haven't played through half. ^^'' (RPGs are just too long, somtimes).
@Dawn of Sorrow: The Castlevania? Ok, that's something I can understand though I guess the buyer was rather disappointed by it. Seriously, the game is not half as good as Aria of Sorrow.
