I wanted a portable gaming device. Psp is very old. Isn't it?

Have you not considered the 3DS? The Vita is a great device in terms of potential, but if you're not hellbent on a Sony device, the 3DS has an extremely well developed library of games.

I I had watched "uncharted golden abyss" video on youtube, the graphics impressed me.

buy a PS3 instead. its cheaper and more games
you will just need a monitor with HDMI or a tv tune to connect to notebook or desktop.
 
Ok guys, plz dont recommend hima console. He clearly mentioned he is moving to college and he will be needing a portable gaming device :)

If you want physical button just buy those Gamepads for Android phones. If its not here in India then just get a 2013 line Xperia cellphone and hook it up to a PS3 gamepad. And from the Android gaming reviews, games are really fun to play on a gamepad..

But nothing beats the 3DS...its a hit, and expect more great games to come, like that new Zelda game..

I suggest the PS vita. The upcoming game line up looks promising. You have games like The Walking Dead 400 Days, Rayman Legends, Tearaway, Killzone Mercenary, Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate, Final Fantasy X / Final Fantasy X-2 HD, Dust 514: Neocom , Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty , Flower and lots more.

Its worth it and currently picking up sales worldwide.

Wrong and misleading information.

It spiked for a week in Japan only, that too after a massive marketing campaign for Toukiden, and then it dropped back to ~22k from that spike of ~40k units in only a week.

It is certainly not picking up sales worldwide sales.

Wrong and misleading information. 31,271 is not ~40,000 by any stretch of the imagination.

Is graphics the only thing you're looking for? Do you want to enjoy games or do you want to drool at eye candy?

The 3DS doesn't have bad graphics by any stretch of imagination. You will definitely have a blast on the 3DS if you're looking to enjoy yourself.

And also, the specs are of 2011-12 Android flagship. That itself is a turn off.

Buying a PS3 (used) would be much better.

Check here:

Platform Totals - VGChartz

Last time i heard, worldwide sales were around 3.5 million this year only. In a span of 2 -3 months , its more than 5 million ( 5.36 mil). Now doesn't that mean its picking up sales?
Japan is indeed responsible for sales w.r.t that title ( Toukiden). I never said its selling like hot cakes or demolishing the competition, but its certainly and definitely picking up.

Do you want him to carry a monitor and a PS3 everywhere he wants to go? :lol:

And arguing that console X has a bigger penis than console Y is hardly relevant. That has never determined console success and enjoyability. History has way too many examples.

How many times have you gone to a video game store or a video games section in an electronics store and seen people discuss the cell engine with employees of the store and how hardware of one console is better?

VGChartz does not cite their sources, so I can hardly call their data reliable. Also, their wiki is not even up to date with the latest chart numbers for 2012 for some of the sources they take numbers from across multiple regions. If you have a source for that 5.36mil number I would like to see it.

But you missed my point: Toukiden caused a spike for one week and then the sales fell down again for PS Vita. How is that picking up sales if it is a burst and then a fall? From ~31k down to ~22k.

According to May NPD Sales Data, the Vita has been selling less than 30k every month in the US and we know that it has not been outdoing the 3DS in Japan, so according to the VGChartz data, in Q1 2013 the Vita must have sold like hell in Europe, otherwise it is not possible to add ~2million units in such a short span of time.

Feel free to post reliable data that counteracts this, otherwise those numbers are hard to believe.
