How is the iPhone pricey? Its $199. That's the ubiquitous price for all high-end smartphones nowadays.Guest said:
amazing to see the words "need" and "price" so often, when extremely overpriced and limited iPhones and flying off the shelves.
do you "need" an iPhone or an iPad when you can have other smartphones for half the price?
and how about the iPad, that thing costs like twice the vita and, game-wise, does far less than half.
However, the majority (high majority) of iPad users use it for... gaming. Bad gaming, too. But it suffices to them
So neither "price" OR "need" should be an issue IF what you want is a gaming handheld. It is cheaper than an iPhone or an iPad or even many other smartphones that cost much higher and do far less, gaming-wise.
Most important is what lawfer said. Compared to other CONSOLES (and not phones, tablets), it is indeed pricey!
The same chips in the Vita will be in the iPhone 3. The only think I'll miss are tangible buttons and analog sticks. Hopefully Apple will come up with something to help control games. Like a touch sensitive back, as the Vita has.R3DP3NGUIN said:
