It's not the only incentive I could find in buying a Vita, but I cannot justify buying one until the problem is remedied.
I don't have to carry around my DS AND 3DS to play my games for both systems. For the PSP and Vita, I would have to, and I don't feel that's acceptable.
Sony might think that it is, and that's fine, but they won't be getting my money because of it.
I get this, and believe me, I'd like to be able to play UMD's on my Vita.
But to be fair here, how often are you really going to go out somewhere long enough to where you would need(or even make sense, for that matter) to be able to play multiple games on multiple systems? I'm guessing probably only a few times a year. Most people will only play these for about an hour or two a day(when not at home), so the idea that you'd want to play both PSP games and Vita games isn't something that you're likely going to be able to do.
In to a PSP game? Bring your PSP with you. In to a Vita game? Bring that with you instead.
I'll also say this: I haven't used my PSP once since I got my Vita. Know how many times I've played a DS game on my 3DS? Only 3-4 times, and zero times this year. It's all about playing the new games with these systems, the people whining about BC probably wouldn't even utilize it as much as they think. Besides, it's only a recent fad that I think wouldn't be so terrible if it went away... Nobody cared at all when we couldn't play SNES games on our N64's, we just wanted to enjoy the new games! I know, imagine that
Additionally, both libraries are equal with Vita & 3DS, so move along. I don't get it, why can't these coexist?
The Vita is NOT a disappointment, there's nothing wrong with it! It works just fine, looks great, and has plenty of really good games. Bad marketing and high pricing have equaled bad sales, not "OMG teh system suxorz". Let's also not forget that Vita is at the original pricepoint of the 3DS. Remember how everyone was all, "wow,that'saffordableI'mtotallygettingitlookoutNintendo!"? Yeah.
