PSXE Poll Update: Gamers Split On Vita Launch Window
For the second straight week, we have a toss-up rather than a definitive answer for our poll.
When we asked if you thought Sony screwed up by not releasing the PlayStation Vita this holiday season, almost exactly half said yes, Sony definitely missed a great opportunity.
And yet, the other half thinks the new handheld will do just fine when it releases in 2012 and in fact, it might actually be a better launch window. We won't pass judgment; we're not analysts, and we just hope to see the Vita become a portable success. We're impressed by what we've seen so far, as games like Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Wipeout 2048 are bound to be both technically superior and enticing for all gamers who love the cutting edge. And you know, although Sony won't drop the price to match Nintendo, we don't think the retail cost is out of control.
This week, we want to know if you think older games can stand up to newer productions. We're not talking about from a technical standpoint, obviously, but just from a subjective "fun factor" view. A lot of younger fans think the classics are boring and offer nothing but nostalgia, while veteran gamers will swear up and down that we've lost a sort of innocent purity. What say you about this subject?
