That's cheap for a gimmick speaker, actually.

They have already delivered at least one product, that seems to work, 3.8/5 stars on Amazon. So it seems likely that they'll deliver this one, and it'll work.

Whether you'll be one of the five-star or the two-star users is hard to predict. It might depend on what your expectations were.

Doesn't seem shitty to me, just a bit overhyped.

Buy these, pull that thing off, replace it.

Rune Factory 4 | Metacritic (78/8.0) | 3DS - $39.99 USD

---

> Rune Factory 4 is a game I always wanted to try, but never got around to justifying the $40 price tag. Luckily after a few trades in at the local game store a fresh copy happened to be traded-in by someone else and I was able to snag it half off.

> A fun game, and true to its predecessor’s tagline, “A fantasy Harvest Moon”. The game focuses on farming, monster raising, and dungeon crawling. Though the curve is a little weird to get used too, I felt I very quickly pushed to level 50 in the first act, all within the first Spring. Then quickly became underpowered with less than 49 levels and two out of three acts to go. Perhaps it is because the RPG portion feels a little forced. For me, I think the game really shines in relationship building mechanics, and managing your status with the townspeople. The farming feels familiar, and is very similar to Harvest Moon, however, the monster raising portion is odd. You can essentially just grab the Cow, Sheep and Chicken monster and be set, the “item” monsters and plants which spawn weapons and armor are something I have yet to exploit in detail, but they did add their own flavor to the game. Additionally the crafting mechanics for cooking, forging and sewing are fun, and interesting, though the actually interaction that goes on during the doing of such action is not noticeably stimulating. Overall I think if you enjoy Harvest Moon you will enjoy this game. If you do not, this game probably will grab you with a 35:65 ratio.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable | Metacritic (89/9.0) | PSP - $19.99 USD

---

> I recently decided the Persona franchise was one which I felt deeply remorseful in having missed. As such, due to my recent acquisition of a used PSP in great condition, I decided to start with Persona 3 Portable, as I have heard very little about Persona 1 or 2. Additionally, I have heard that the first two games in no way, other than elements and mechanics, relate to 3 and 4.

> So Persona 3 Portable, an interesting game, it plays very much so like a point and click style game on the PSP, with a strong resemblance to typical Visual Novel games. However, this true with the exception of the combat portion of the game, this part of the game is essentially dungeon crawling and is done in an isometric fashion. Though combat itself does not seem to be anything too shockingly different from standard ATB. Though, similar to the previous statement, there is an exception, more so involving some of the finer mechanics used.
> This includes Personas, which can be thought of as both a Summon and a piece of equipment, similar to FFX-2's garment system or Golden Sun's Djinn system, in which the Summon equipped defines your abilities. Additionally there is the fact that there is a huge focus on weakness and critical strikes, which not only do more damage but allow you to simply just do more. I spent roughly ten hours grinding the in this game, it was quite fun, though repetitive.

> Now you may be asking, why the grind? Well, suffice to say the game takes place in largely two different worlds, one is essentially a visual novel experience, balancing school and after school activities, basically playing the life of a Japanese High School student as depicted in most anime. In this world you build relationships, which can strengthen your Personas, and advance plot points. The other world is essentially a dungeon crawler, you are attempting to scale a dungeon of some XXX amount of floors, but can only do it so often, before tiring or getting sick. I would say the high school life simulator portion is far more interesting than the dungeon portion.

> However, after consulting some FAQs, all I can say is that to perfect this game, there is a very stringent order to how you perform certain tasks, things that you must do and not mess up. Additionally, as fun as this game is, I had to put it down. I'll describe this a bit more in the next section.

Shin Megami Tensei:Persona 3 FES | Metacritic (89/9.0) | PS2 - $16.16 USD

---

> Now, FES, is what I am currently playing. After consulting the aforementioned guides I found out that the FES release was a PS2 version which included a story expansion, and had all the cut scenes displayed in both the character cut-in visual novel style, and the 3D model style at the same time. Far more immersive than the Portable version in my opinion. Additionally FES has far more animated cut scenes, essentially anime. The tradeoff however is no female options for the protagonist, a purely portable feature, and far stricter requirements to perfecting the game such as tiring during trips to the aforementioned dungeon portion, rather than after.

> All in all, thus far I prefer this version leagues over the portable version.

---
Insurgency | Metacritic (74/8.5) | Steam - $14.99 $7.49 USD

---

> After reading the post this week by one dedicated submitter here on /r/games, I decided to download this game and give it a try. My experience thus far has been great. I absolutely love the game, and it definitely has filled in the gap I felt from a lot of the shooters in my library. The realistic approach and game types offered a very fresh and extremely fun. Quite honestly, I could do no justice in my description of the game itself, and suggest you look at the aforementioned thread for more detail, found here, but I can say I get the same feeling playing Insurgency now, as I did playing Call of Duty 4 in its prime.

---
Strike Vector | Metacritic (73/8.1) | Steam - $11.99 $4.79 USD

---

> Another free weekend game, I had been keeping my eye on this game earlier this year, but it eventually dropped off my radar. I probably would not have even given it a try if I was not looking for Insurgency’s installer for the free weekend.

> A fun flight combat game. Reminds me of a PS2 game I played when I was younger, I think it might have been Macross? Regardless, it’s a blast, fast combat, versatile weapon choices and cool ships. My only complaint though is lag was definitely an issue in my experience with people rubber banding, and teleporting around, something I haven’t suffered in my other games. This just may have been due to a lack of any nearby servers. However, in the end I felt it was worth the $5.00 USD price tag, and can see myself poking my head in every now and then.

---
Nosgoth | Metacritic (?/5.8) | Steam - $4.99 $2.49 USD

---

> Again, while looking for the installer for Insurgency I saw this game, and after playing Strike Vector I decided it might also be another fun game. Not so much. From the store page I was expecting something similar to the old Free-To-Play game Rakion. (Which if anyone knows where I can play that game now, let me know.) Instead it felt like a very poorly balanced arena fighter with a Dungeon Defender combat system. Quite honestly I thought it was poorly done, but looked fantastic. I would not highly recommend it to anyone in the future.

u/tomster2300 · 10 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I am a paraplegic and get the exact same pain with handhelds. Grips have been a lifesaver! I tried skull & co.'s kickstarter grip and a cheap rubber one off Amazon before sticking with Satisfye's Switch grip. I have big hands and it was the only one large enough to comfortably play with. Edit: They JUST launched all new products but I have their OG Switch grip.

I have other branded grips for my N3DS XL and Vita, but forget what they are (I think they're Japanese brands I found on Amazon), and they're comfortable and work great.

I suggest buying a handful off Amazon to try out and then keep the one that works. They're all made slightly differently so you wont really know until you have them in your "grip" :-) .

Good luck!

Edit: I found the exact grips in my Amazon purchase history (all from Amazon and I live in the states).

u/Ceronn · 8 pointsr/GameDeals

What are you waiting for? The Final Fantasy Tactics enhanced port (The War of the Lions) is available on PSP discs, PSN for PSP/PSVita, iOS, and most recently Android.

u/NormalDefault · 8 pointsr/vita

Welcome!

As most here will tell you, the wiki does a pretty bang up job of answering most of your questions as far as game recommendations goes. You can find it here.

The best games for the platform will all depend on personal preference, but a solid base is always the Vita's stellar exclusives. Gravity Rush, Persona 4 Golden, Danganronpa and most recently Severed are all notable titles you might want to check out.

Battery life on my Slim is pretty good, and you can squeeze more out of it if you turn off WiFi when you're not using it. There are also third party grip cases with built in batteries that can boost the battery life even further, and make the console even more comfortable to hold.

Multiplayer servers will be on a game by game basis, but I think they should all be up and running. You might just run into problems with games where their respective audience have moved onto greener pastures.

I hope this was helpful, and I hope you enjoy your Vita if you take the plunge! :D

u/large_falcon · 7 pointsr/PSP

I know you've put in a lot of effort on getting your current set up to work. But there's a component cable for the PSP go that was made by sony. That would be a pretty easy solution..

Edit: Amazon link -- https://www.amazon.com/PSPgo-Component-AV-Cable-Sony-PSP/dp/B002LH4UB0

u/always_drinking · 7 pointsr/vita

Honestly this is probably the best grip I have for my vita. I have had it for about 2 years with no problems. It even extends the battery life, which is another plus for those games you just can't put down.


https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00G9X4YRM/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1525373938&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=ps+vita+nyko+power+grip&dpPl=1&dpID=41VVzIQFsEL&ref=plSrch

u/BryanWake · 6 pointsr/PSP

Final Fantasy Tactics is available for the PS3, PSP and the Vita platforms. However, owning a homebrewed PSP gives you access to that game (and all other PSP titles) for free. Also, once homebrewed, the PSP gives you the ability to play Atari, Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, GameBoy and many other older consoles games in the form of ROMS through emulators.


You can pick one up brand new for $99.99 on Amazon if you're interested.


The Vita is very locked down compared to the PSP at the present time. This may change in time, but in my opinion, the PSP is still the way to go for absolute freedom and perks.

u/Phanners · 6 pointsr/tipofmytongue

This game sounds super cool and I want to know what it is too, so I searched around a bit, is it this?

http://www.amazon.com/Shin-Megami-Tensei-Persona-Innocent-Sony/dp/B00523VFJU

u/EmoryM · 6 pointsr/vita

PDP PSVita Pull 'N Go Folio is a great case, I have no regrets about buying it.

u/florencemorph · 6 pointsr/Warthunder

Playstation vita, remote play. You need wifi and a PS4 to do it, but it has been reported to work at 160 miles away from the ps4..

The grip accessory I have are Nyko PowerGrips.

u/Sabored · 6 pointsr/vita

If you have large hands the vita is very uncomfortable to hold. I wouldn't buy the trigger grips, I'd buy the Nyko power grip because it has a place to wrap your fingers around on the bottom. It's way more comfortable to hold now, just not as portable.

u/Crysalim · 5 pointsr/PSP

Are you sure you want it used? Buying it new is still very viable, it has a great price:

http://www.amazon.com/PlayStation-Portable-3000-System-Sony-PSP/dp/B001KMRN0M/

If you still want it used I recommend Amazon. They have the best consumer protection - they will truly bend over backwards for you if you get a used lemon.

u/Sexytimeturtle · 5 pointsr/3DS

I've done it to 2 different N3DS XLs. Use Haobase brand caps if you can find them. I've tried Instens and 2 generic brands and they never quite fit properly. The Haobase ones seem to fit the best.

u/Darqon · 5 pointsr/gaming

I recently did this mod, here are the caps you need. OP failed to mention it has to be PSP 1000.

I will say I definitely prefer it, but it's not guaranteed better, it's a personal preference. The stick still doesn't move around like the circle pad, meaning you don't really feel it moving, but I will say it feels better to use.

u/LintFree · 5 pointsr/vita

While this may not answer your question directly, here is a really good case for your Vita (Link for more pictures). You will need to buy a memory card separate though.

u/jzero222 · 5 pointsr/vita

My concern is that the analog sticks would get pushed around in the case itself causing unnecessary wear. I purchased this case from GameStop for just that reason. The case itself has two notches where the analog sticks fit in and it gives space so that they aren't touched when carrying the vita around. I don't really have to worry about that problem with it.

u/DefiantHeart · 5 pointsr/vita

vita case

u/aznkat · 5 pointsr/vita

This is the grip I use for my Vita. It's super comfortable and I don't really feel a need to attach anything to the analog sticks.

u/Tacanacy · 5 pointsr/PS4

For the time being, I use an Audeze LCD-2 Classic through a Schiit Lyr 2 and a Schiit Modi 2 Uber. I use Røde Procaster as a mic and Behringer Q502USB as a mixer.

I've listed my recommendations and suggestions below. There's also some info you should know if you want to get more value for your money. I know it's a lot, but I've explained in the least technical way I can and there are many benefits with this over all-in-one "gaming" headsets. Just ask me if you have questions.



Headphones:

Open-back

  • AKG K612 Pro, K701, K702, K712 Pro, Q701
  • Audio-Technica ATH-AD500x, AD700x, AD990x
  • Beyerdynamic DT880, DT990
  • Monoprice Monolith M1060
  • Philips Fidelio X2, SHP9500
  • Samson SR850
  • Sennheiser Game One (headset), HD558/HD579, HD598/HD599
  • Shure SRH1840
  • Status Audio OB-1
  • Superlux HD668B, HD681, HD681 EVO

    Closed-back

  • AKG K52, K550
  • Audio Technica ATH-MSR7
  • Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro Plus, DT770
  • Monoprice Modern Retro
  • Sennheiser Game Zero (headset)
  • Shure SRH940, SRH1540
  • Status Audio CB-1
  • Superlux HD662, HD662 EVO, HD669
  • V-MODA Crossfade M-100



    I have AKG K52, AKG Q701, Audio-Technica ATH-AD700X, Beyerdynamic DT990 Edition (600 ohms), Philips Fidelio X2, Philips SHP9500, Sennheiser HD598 SR, Superlux HD662 EVO, Superlux HD668B, Superlux HD669 and Superlux HD681 EVO of these headphones, and can recommend them for different needs, preferences and budgets.

     

    The first thing you should determine is whether you need sound isolation or not.

  • Open-back: the earcups have perforations/openings that allow sound to freely pass through. The sonic benefits with this is generally a larger soundstage and better imaging.

  • Closed-back: the earcups have solid shells that isolate sound from passing through to various extent.

     

    Next, you should figure out which sound signature you prefer.

  • Balanced/flat/neutral: doesn't over- or under-emphasize the bass or treble. Rolled off sub-bass often gets a pass.
  • Warm: emphasizes the bass.
  • Dark: recesses the treble. A headphone can be warm and dark.
  • Bright: emphasizes the treble.
  • U-shape: emphasizes the bass and treble a little.
  • V-shape: emphasizes the bass and treble more than U-shaped.
  • Mid-forward: the mids are louder than the bass and treble. The mids may be emphasized or the bass and treble may be recessed.

    If you want louder rumble, then you want linear or emphasized sub-bass. This is easier to find in closed-back. Open-back typically has rolled off sub-bass with the exception of planar magnetic / orthodynamic headphones. If you come across HE400i, an open-back planar, then note that the revision had a backplate removed and therefore causes a bass roll-off, a larger soundstage and brighter treble than the original.

    If you want louder impact, then you want emphasized mid-bass.

     

    Lastly, you should know what sound characteristics constitute positional audio and pertain to immersion.

  • Soundstage: is produced by the headphone, not the game. It's perceived space and environment of sound. It's the size of the sound field. A small soundstage makes the environment around you sound confined or boxed in. With a large soundstage, the environment sounds much more spatial, open and natural. You can't comprehend it without experiencing it.

  • Imaging: is inherent to the audio content. It's how accurately the locations of sounds/objects are reproduced.

  • Separation: is how you discern individual sounds from a range of overlapping sounds. This is only important for competitive shooters.



    Regarding virtual surround sound:

    You're going to come across a lot of stereo elitism in audio enthusiast forums if you bring up virtual surround sound. Virtual surround sound isn't bullshit or a gimmick. That's coming from someone who generally prefers stereo much more than virtual surround sound and has bought Q701, AD700x, DT990, Fidelio X2, HD598, HD700 and HD800 in pursuit of bigger and better soundstage and imaging to get the same three-dimensional space and environment of sound that virtual surround sound produces.

    Virtual Surround sound varies a lot from DSP (digital signal processor) to DSP (CMSS-3D, Dolby Headphone, SBX, etc.) How you perceive it compared to stereo also depends on the soundstage and imaging properties of the headphone and how well games are mixed. No matter how large the soundstage is and how good the imaging is, stereo doesn't sound fully three-dimensional as virtual surround sound at all times. Dialogues and very loud sounds like tanks, jets, trains, bonfires, collapsing buildings, galloping horses, etc. near you tend to sound very intimate and dominate in either ear when you don't face them.

    Virtual surround sound has its drawbacks too: it compresses and degrades the sound quality. I find it most noticeable with rain, waterfalls and splashing water; they sound akin to white and pink noise. Subtle details become faint or not audible. When headphones already have decent soundstage, imaging and separation, I find that virtual surround sound diffuses the positional audio and the ability to pick up audio cues. For competitive shooters, I only use stereo.

    I've used Dolby Headphone and SBX personally and listened to several others through videos on YouTube, and I prefer SBX from Creative when it comes to sound quality compared to Dolby Headphone and positional audio compared to all of them.

     

    Mics:

    Attachable to headphones

  • Antlion ModMic
  • Massdrop Minimic
  • V-MODA BoomPro

    Alternatives

  • Audio-Technica AT2020USB
  • Blue Snowball
  • Blue Yeti
  • Neewer Clip on Mini Lapel Microphone
  • Samson Go
  • Sony ECMCS3
  • Zalman ZM-Mic1



    Sound cards:

  • Astro MixAmp Pro TR
  • Creative Sound BlasterX G1, Sound BlasterX G5
  • Turtle Beach Elite Pro TAC



    Headphone amplifiers and DACs:

  • Audioengine D1 (both)
  • Audio-gd NFB-11.28 (both)
  • Creative Sound Blaster X7 (both)
  • FiiO D3 (DAC)
  • FX Audio DAC-X6 (both)
  • Mayflower ARC (both)
  • Micca OriGen G2 (both)
  • Schiit Magni 3 (amp), Modi 2 Uber (DAC)
  • SMSL SD793-II (both)
  • Topping A30 (amp), D30 (DAC)



    The PS4/DS4 isn't capable of powering all headphones sufficiently, so you may need a sound card or an amp and a DAC (digital-to-analog converter). Power isn't just impedance dependent, it's also sensitivity dependent, which many new to this hobby overlook.

    If a headphone has a low impedance rating and a high sensitivity rating, it will be very easy to drive. If a headphone has a high impedance rating and a high sensitivity rating, it should be easy to drive. If a headphone has a high impedance rating and a low sensitivity rating, it will be hard to drive. If a headphone has a low impedance rating and a low sensitivity rating, it will be very hard to drive.

    There's no consensus on where 'high' impedance starts at. I've read/heard anywhere from 50 ohms to 300 ohms. For sensitivity, there are two different measurements used for this: SPL/mW and SPL/V. 100 dB SPL/mW and 110 SPL/V are considered high.

    If you don't want to ever deal with this, then I recommend just getting a very powerful sound card or amp, e.g. Creative Sound BlasterX G5 or Schiit Magni 3.



    Sound cards have an amp and a DAC built in and sacrifice sound quality for features. If you want to connect the headphone and mic (3.5mm mics, not USB mics) to the same source, then you have to use a sound card unless the amp has a separate jack for the mic and officially supports PS4, e.g. Mayflower ARC. Creative Sound Blaster X7's mic jack doesn't work with PS4. If the mic has an own cable and the source has only one jack for the headphone and mic, then you'll have to use a TRRS Y-splitter, also called a 4-pole Y-splitter. It has three black rings on the connector.

    If you don't mind the headphone cable and mic cable going different places, then you can connect the headphone to an amp and a DAC, and the mic to the controller, which requires a TRRS Y-splitter in order to work.

    USB mics connect directly to the USB port on PS4. You can also use an XLR mic, but they require a mixer. Interfaces don't work with PS4 because they require drivers.

    To use an amp, you need a DAC because USB and optical are digital signals and PS4 has no analog outputs. USB DACs may reverse the left and right channels or not work at all, so I have only included DACs that use optical, which is completely reliable. You can use an HDMI-to-optical converter if you have Slim.

    To connect a separate amp to a DAC, you need RCA cables.



    Alternatively, you can use a sound card that merely functions as an audio USB adapter. Since the V-MODA BoomPro connects to the jack on the headphone and replaces the original headphone cable, you'll need to use a Y-splitter, which is included with the BoomPro.



    If you want to connect the headphone and mic (3.5mm mics, not USB mics) to the controller but want volume and mic controls, you can use either of these:

  • adjustR
  • Fosmon
  • Insignia
  • Lucid Sound AdjustR

Brand new PSP-3000 without any games is $100, so not bad.

While there really aren't any new games coming out for it, there are plenty of exclusives and depending on the types of games your son likes, a cool system to explore.

One of the best things about being new to PSP this late in the life cycle (near the end) is that games are fairly cheap. I managed to get a lot of brand new games for roughly $5 - $15 off amazon.com with free shipping. So while it's certainly not on the cutting edge of gaming, it's a good time to pick it up and experience on the cheap.

u/Neo_Techni · 4 pointsr/vita
u/Fatalfrosthawk · 4 pointsr/MonsterHunter

Buy a psp 1000 analog stick cover and replace your C-stick nipple is all I can say. I did it and the system feels entirely different and much easier to use. Here is a link to the ones I bought-https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005IF00ZM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Installing it is literally as easy as using your nail to peel the rubber off the c-stick and then putting this on there instead.

u/truemeliorist · 4 pointsr/vitahacks

I like it! However, there are some tweaks you may want to consider (if you want some unsolicited feedback):

  1. Can you bring something over the shoulders that the top of the vita could slide into? The ergo grip I am using has them and I love it compared to the other ones. It really helps to keep the console steady. I have other grips that just clip around the sides and the vita constantly pops out.
  2. I'd love to see you integrate the buttons somehow. Trigger style buttons always seem to be nicer to me than the bumper style that the vita normally has. But that's totally personal preference.

    Otherwise, it looks AWESOME and I really love the stand you've included. Definitely great work! I wish I could find a mashup of your grip and the one I'm currently using because they both have things I want :)
u/coma420 · 4 pointsr/PS4Pro

No joke, the grip for the Vita from Nyko was one of the best purchases I've made related to the Vita. So much more comfortable.

u/TDAM · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I have this for the Vita. I realllllly want a Switch version. Essentially what you have here

u/VILLIAMZATNER · 4 pointsr/MonsterHunter

Would like to tag on to this to say buying a controller grip and if you're using a N3DSXL, replacing the nub with a PSP 1000 series stick will hugely increase the quality of play. My brother owns a N2DSXL and made the same changes. If ripping out the nub makes you uncomfortable, videos on YouTube are easy to find. I do not regret it one bit, the psp stick is a full upgrade from the shitty nub.


In 2016 I bought a N3DSXL to exclusively play Pokemon and to enter the MH franchise. I tried MHGEN first and the barrier of the controls, and Gen's assumption that you're already an experienced Hunter made me quit before I even killed a Great Maccao.


Advice online suggested MH4U was a better entry point to the series, and it 100% was for me. That motivated me to find ways to make the handheld more comfortable for my giant fucking sausage fingers.


To me, MH4U legitimately feels like a full sized game stuffed into a handheld system. I still found myself fully immersed, even with 3ds graphics, which really fly below the radar when you're occupied with the technical mechanics that make this series so addicting.

u/mczanetti · 3 pointsr/PSP

have you tried [this] (http://www.amazon.com/PSP-AV-Cable-Sony/dp/B000VIUNZI) kind of cable?

One thing you should observe is what model is your psp ( 1000, 2000, 3000 or Go), because i think the cable will vary from one to another. If you want to know more about your TV, these red, yellow, and white holes are called 'Component Video'. Read a little on [this] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Component_video) wikipedia article.

Wow those grips look better than mines! What are they called and where do you get them?. My main problem with the PDP grips is that the triggers aren't easier to press.

u/Saibaka · 3 pointsr/vita

I own these and while they are comfy the L trigger feels squishy. Tried out the Nyko one without the battery pack and it felt to big for my hands.

I am going to jump to the $5 one myself.

Honestly, I think we'll see a third party manufacturer make exactly what you said: a holder with palm grips and comfortable shoulder buttons.

I tried something like this for the PS Vita and it felt so good. https://www.amazon.com/PDP-PSVita-Trigger-Grips/dp/B0072A4JVW/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1488120601&sr=8-4&keywords=ps+vita+grip

The screens are the same dimensions so the 2000 screen protectors will work fine.

And I have this trigger grip which works great for extended play sessions.

u/the_moonface · 3 pointsr/PS4

You can rotate games so I wouldn't worry about a bigger memory card but I highly recommend getting trigger grips as the bumpers are awful. It'd also be nice if Sony created a good L1/L2/R1/R2 solution. Here's the one I use: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0072A4JVW?cache=ffe6f2a6f31e0c1ba6336eea7769d2a1&pi=SX200_QL40&qid=1404337399&sr=8-1#ref=mp_s_a_1_1

I tried this one and hated it:

But then I bought this one and it is amazing: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0072A4JVW/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I'm sure if you search on Amazon you'll find the same one for the same price I got it (around $10).

Look for ones that expand the trigger grips and don't block the charger.

u/Zero_Heart · 3 pointsr/vita

I bought this for $5. I mean it looks fine and all but I don't know how many people have that stuff laying around.

u/nogard08 · 3 pointsr/vita

I use Nyko's Power Grip. Not only is it comfortable but it also comes with a battery to give your Vita extra game time.

https://www.amazon.com/Nyko-Power-Grip-Vita-PCH-2000-playstation/dp/B00G9X4YRM

I've been using it for a while and I cannot stand playing the Vita without it. It feels flat and very unergonomic.

u/cilvyenn · 3 pointsr/PS4

I absolutely love my vita! I originally got it for a Christmas present on black Friday last year and only wanted it for remote play. At first, I felt the remote play was horrible because the cramped controls.

But then I bought this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00G9X4YRM/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?qid=1421123363&sr=8-2&dpPl=1&dpID=413RZxs4l1L&ref=plSrch&pi=AC_SX200_QL40 and it's been a game changer!

I now play Destiny, BF4, and GTAV at about 90% (DS4 100%) whereas without the grips I was at around 30%. I use it whenever someone needs the TV or when I just want to go outside and chill in the hot tub.

The only negatives I've experienced are that you can't voice chat with friends while using remote play unless you have an amazing wireless headset connected to your PS4 and you need faster than 5 mbps internet to remote play away from home. Other than that I personally think the vita is worth purchasing for remote play if you can't always be on your TV and you don't want to disconnect it and move it all the time.

Your gaming life will change when taking a shit with remote play.

u/AnarisBell · 3 pointsr/vita

Seconding the glass screen protector. I got the same one and it's awesome. Fits fantastically. I bought the original version too for my fiancé's Vita and it likewise is a great fit. Slightly curved edges too so there's no rough border.

As for a case, I don't use one. I bought the Nyko grip with the built in extra battery and carry my Vita with it in a 10 inch padded tablet case so I don't need to carry the parts separately.

I absolutely love the Nyko grip; it adds hours and hours of battery life and the Vita and the grip can be charged through the same port on the grip itself so I never have to remove it. Plus it's so much more comfortable to hold the system for extended play.

If interested...

u/talkingwires · 3 pointsr/vita

A few thoughts:

  • Get a Nyko Power Grip. Helps immensely with the ergonomics, makes the Vita feel like a console controller.

  • Try having your Vita connect to your PS4 directly instead of over your router. Doesn't help much when you're away from home, but helps when you are.

  • You open by saying, "I was expecting a portable AAA gaming machine as was initially promised in early marketing. A machine that I could play ps4 portably and reliably." If you bought it this year, you should have known the dreams of the early marketing "portable console experience" died a long time ago. You really only have yourself to blame for that one.
u/Das_Gaus · 3 pointsr/vita

HORI creates the highest quality cases for consoles period. For $15, you get both in one product. However, if you want a different screen protector, then go ahead, since they HORI cheap'd out on it.

I was in a similar situation and ended up getting one of these audio/mic controls. They plug right into the audio jack of the Dualshock 4 and let you mute the mic or change the volume whenever you want. I personally prefer the mic switch over the one in the vita earbuds (it's faster and easier to use).

Here is an image of how it looks like when attached to the DS4.

Edit: Forgot to mention you can use any earbud/headset with it.

You would need to buy a TV component out cable, a USB video capture device for your MacBook (can't help ya there) and probably some video editing software to crop out the black borders.

(Be aware different PSPs have different ports for TV out, the one above only works on 2000)

u/KusonagiKuroi · 2 pointsr/MonsterHunter

The PSP 2000 can use usb video output (the usb goes into ps3 and turn on usb output in the psp's settings). That or you can use the cables sold that are designed specifically to plug in your 2-3000 into a monitor/tv. These are the cables http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000VIPJ0W
There may also just be human error, I've used a 2000 with a remotejoy successfully.

u/Klasafyed · 2 pointsr/vita

I know the PSP 1000 had the serial port but I admit I'm not 100% sure if it supported video out. I am however, sure that the PSP slim/3000 supported it. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000VIUNZI/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1465242940&sr=8-1&pi=SY200_QL40&keywords=psp+video+out&dpPl=1&dpID=41hYYSiiwfL&ref=plSrch So this just adds to my point.

The PS3 controller connects via Bluetooth, so the PSP X000s will not function this way as they lack BT.

The PSP Go has Bluetooth (as does the Xperia Play phone/handheld hybrid) so they both have been shown to be able to connect with the PS3 controller (maybe someone can provide a specific example or tutorial). To get the PSP Go connected to a TV you will need the PSPGo cradle. Keep in mind that one of the reviews says the cradle does not come with the cables to do TV out ... so that will be extra.

Also I've read in /r/Android that you can do PS3 controller over BT + Android phone -> TV, though it may need some software/HDMI cable to do so, depending on your setup (and whether or not your TV has WiFi).

Edit: fixed link

u/jamvanderloeff · 2 pointsr/PSP

With a cable you can get component video out https://www.amazon.com/PSPgo-Component-AV-Cable-Sony-PSP/dp/B002LH4UB0

u/20wompwomp20 · 2 pointsr/DnD

Isn't that everything that isn't "period?"

I mean if that's the only criteria you'd be better off with TORG and the anarchistic interdimensional anachronism stew. :Þ

"Torg is set in a near future setting, known officially as "the near now." At the game's starting point, this world has been subjected to an interdimensional invasion by a series of "High Lords" who have changed the natural laws of large swaths of Earth to reflect those of their home dimensions. The players assume the role of "Storm Knights", people from Earth and the various invading realms, who possess limited reality altering abilities and oppose the plans of the High Lords.

Player characters were all "Storm Knights." These were people who were able to alter reality in limited ways. Storm Knights came from all of the different realities in the game, but opposed the invaders for various reasons. Some of the Storm Knights were natives of the invaders' home worlds, and some were natives of Earth who had "flipped" to the invaders' reality. A person became a Storm Knight by experiencing a reality crisis which linked them to a particular reality.

The primary way in which Storm Knights were able to shape reality is the ability to impose the rules of their own reality on a limited area of another reality. Each reality, or "cosm," has a set of four "axioms," which delineate what could be achieved under its rules. The most important of these for gameplay were the technological, magical, and spiritual axioms. For ordinary people, violating the laws of a reality is hard, and becomes increasingly impossible over time. For example, when the Neolithic reality of The Living Land invaded North America, soldiers found that their guns and radios no longer worked because the tech-axiom of the cosm only allowed for a Neolithic level of technology. Storm Knights, however, carried their own reality with them. Normally, they could perform under their own reality wherever they went, sometimes requiring a check against their reality skill, the one skill possessed by all Storm Knights, to accomplish feats which particularly violated the rules of a reality."

Current campaign involves a gun-toting cowboy squid monster and his hoverbike riding samurai buddy trying to help a mono-eyed necromancer ogre kid find his adoptive Lich mother who was abducted by Bechtel to raise all the people they killed in Bolivia as an army to invade the Living Land and exploit its 30% freshwater surface. [cough] you can get pretty ridiculous, which is why it's pretty popular in Asia.

Also there's a nifty meta mechanic meant for very large/multiple groups running parallel where rumours spread often enough bend reality on their own to become true, which naturally make the media (and any worlds advanced enough for the net obviously) and any cults in control of them even more dangerous than in real life! (And you thought South Korea had problems before! Persona 2 is a good example of one game which utilised this. Some can be downright comical. It's hard to do but you could potentially wipe someone/thing out of existence if everyone can be convinced they don't actually exist or had recently passed, ala those tabloid celebrity headlines about reclusive actors.)

u/DrewShiGold · 2 pointsr/anime

It actually replaces it! I bought a set of 3 for $4.99 off amazon. and all you have to do it Pry out the old C stick gently, cut the loops holding it in place, then press the cap over the C-stick area, Here's a video I watched before deciding to do it:

I replaced my C-stick with a PSP C-Stick. It's much better than the 3DS C-stick, imo.

You can buy a PSP C-stick here

And here is a tutorial on how to replace it.

Just a warning, you need to open up your 3DS for this so will need a screwdriver. I highly recommend you use a Phillips #00 screwdriver.

Now it might feel a little weird when you use PSP c-stick, but you will get used to it. I use it all the time in Monster Hunter and it works really great.

This is the one I've been rolling with and it's served me so well. Space for the charger and some 20-ish games as well as 4 memory cards. There's a smaller case within that can be pulled out that serves for when I'm not gonna be gone long but want to game that also holds 4 game cards and the vita.

u/tots_o_tater · 2 pointsr/vita

If you plan on playing games in it, then my suggestion is not the one you're looking for.

I went with the Pull and go Folio--haven't regretted it yet. It's basically separated into two cases; one that can be pulled out for maximum efficiency... Or something like that.

Anyway, it works well for me.

u/meandthestereo · 2 pointsr/vita
u/Lemstar · 2 pointsr/vita

You want a screen protector for the back, at the very least. The front is pretty hardy, but the back needs something, or it's going to pick up scratches when you just set it down.

Personally, I went with a generic-brand crystal case with a generic protector on both the back and front screens. It doesn't look amazing, but it gets the job done without increasing the bulk of the system so much that it won't fit into whatever case you buy.

The Pull N Go Folio is a pretty nice way to transport it. The pull-out case is hard enough to endure getting thrown around in a bag, and you have the option of also packing it into the full folio if you want more room for cartridges/accessories.

And the PDB Pull 'N Go Folio:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0072A4JTY/ref=oh_o06_s00_i00_details

I like both of them, the Vita fits in the folio with the media stand attached, which I wasn't sure about until I got them both.

The folio has slots for many games plus the pouch that holds the Vita has a few slots for games as well and it detachable from the folio for when you don't want to take the whole thing with you.

I don't trust the brand. I do have the PDP Pull N' Go Folio and I love everything about it.

u/ZebraMuffin · 2 pointsr/vita

This is what I use. It's no longer available from Amazon it seems, but it's very nice. It holds 23 PS Vita games, 2 memory cards, the PS Vita system, and the charger.

If you don't want to take the full case around, it has a mini-case inside that's removable, and can hold the PS Vita, and 4 games. If you can find it available somewhere, I highly recommend it. I've had it since 2012 and it's still in fine condition.

u/IamSparticles · 2 pointsr/vita

I ordered this and it should be arriving today. It has the most consistently high reviews on Amazon. I'll try to check in later when I actually have my hands on it. What interested me most was the fact that it has a small, detachable case for just the PS and a few game cards, but the larger case will hold even more game cards as well as the charger for longer trips. I'm flying to Colorado next week, so it will get a good test run.

u/Artcankill · 2 pointsr/vita

u/Matriss · 2 pointsr/vita

FWIW I play my Vita way more often since I got these. The Vita by itself makes my hands cramp up because of awkward finger placements and the handles help so much.

But also yes, PS+ is pretty rad and even if you decide to get rid of your Vita you'll still get the games for PS3.

u/clee290 · 2 pointsr/vita

There's the Nyko Power Grip which has an external battery to "double" the Vita's battery life.

There is also the PDP Trigger Grip which uses triggers to push your Vita's shoulder buttons.


There are also a variety of plain grips which don't really add any functionality other than the grip.

As for case that can fit a Vita with a grip, I've heard of people using iPad Mini cases, such as this. Also this case on Amazon has been recommended. Here is a picture: click.

u/MzTredecim · 2 pointsr/vita

I have both the Nyko Power Grip and the PDP Trigger Grip and I really like them both. I've found the Nyko is just a little more comfortable for me and I love the extra battery life but having the extended triggers on the PDP grip is useful at times. Either grip is definitely better than no grip. I'm a girl but 6ft and apparently my hands are just too large to play without them.

EDIT: The Nyko Power grip can be picked up in the wild for cheaper than that amazon link. I just put it up for reference. If you don't care about the extra battery life also check out the CTA Grip.

u/DronesWorkHard · 2 pointsr/vita

Wish i would have seen this a week ago
I bought the trigger grips, the nyko power grips and the nyko clones (no power) i think ct or something.

I threw the trigger grips in the trash (only paid $6 for them)

The nyko battery died but its by far the most comfortable. good luck

p.s. the triggers on the pdp suck and are not an improvement over the regular vita triggers imho. I play a lot of destiny. YMMV with other games

u/sweetcuppingcakes · 2 pointsr/vita

I went through this same dilemma recently, and ended up with two different grips.

First I bought the PDP because it seemed to be the most "dual shock" like. It's pretty expensive, so I bought one used off eBay. It came smelling like cigarettes, but after leaving it in a bowl of warm dishsoap for an hour it was good as new. However, the shoulder triggers are terrible. Very spongey and they are prone to getting stuck at times. Plus they make an awful squeaky crunching sound that made it hard to play at night without waking up my SO. A lot of other people had this problem online, so I tried a few different solutions I found. I took out the top screws to make the case looser, which didn't make much of a difference. Later I used some WD-40 on the triggers which made a tiny difference, but not enough.

I decided I was done with the stupid thing and about a week ago I ordered the Dreamgear Comfort Grip off Amazon. It doesn't feel as much like a dual shock, but it is waaaay better than the stupid overpriced PDP in every other aspect. Going from the PDP to the Dreamgear was like taking gloves made of cement off my hands. I recommend the DG 100%.

u/diversionmary · 2 pointsr/vita

So far I bought:

PDP trigger grips

An adapter so I can char be via any USB charger

Sony screen protective film

Kinda ridiculous that they purposely disabled the ability to charge via any USB charger.

u/cjkeats · 2 pointsr/vita

I find it is a little. I got the Trigger Grip and for games where you use the sticks more it's okay, but the grip part isn't as long as I'd like it to be.

u/Rezatron · 2 pointsr/spelunky

You echo my impressions. The slow down is similar (but not as bad) to what happens on my 2009 Macbook Pro. This was fixed on PC by being able to disable full screen effects. Still it's disappointing to see it on Vita and with no options to turn off full screen effects here. One might even argue that ghosting is easier with the slight lag. However the "dead are restless" levels are much worse and the "wet fur" levels have this issue as well.

Regarding point #3, you can buy external attachments for the Vita. This model which I use has PS3/360 style triggers and makes prolonged gaming periods tolerable. Something like this will be even better although it's missing the faux triggers of the first model.

u/Syvandrius · 2 pointsr/vita

I'm glad I could be of help! I love my Vita and I couldn't be happier to help someone else decide if they want one of their own.

FPS have been really hit or miss depending on your play style. For instance the Black ops declassified campaign was really poor. It was basically a bunch of time trials strung together. However I had a really good time with the horde mode the game offers and drop back in to it every now and again when I have a few minutes to spare.

I've been hearing really good things about Killzone mercenary so much so in fact that I'm starting to believe that this game could end up being a heavy system seller.

Here's a gameplay trailer

For the record I also enjoy the single player campaign to these games, they come off as corny action movies. Which is the best thing ever.

Can you elaborate on the rear touchpad? What is it made for? Will it get in the way of me trying to play the games I've purchased?

The rear touch pad adds a significant amount of interaction to many Vita titles. For instance Little big planet Vita allows you to interact with some objects in the environment in different ways. It also functions as the L-2 and R-2 buttons for PS2 titles. Many games don't bother with it's use what so ever however, so it's kind of hit or miss.

The difficulty you'll have with it really depends on the size of your hands, as a giant handed monstrosity I have some issues with it personally. Getting some grips for your Vita well help out quite a bit if you're a fellow monstrosity.

These trigger grips help a bunch

Lastly, I'm guessing that I can DL games from PS+ while I'm on my home wifi. Is that correct, or is there a specific cable that I need to DL games from PS+ directly to the Vita?

You can indeed download games via wifi quite easily with the Vita, while also being able to transfer them to either cloud storage or your PC to save space when not playing them. Additionally the the AC adapter doubles as a USB cord to plug the system into your PC for easy transfers and whatnot. It's good stuff.

I hope this helped! And don't worry about asking questions, we're a pretty helpful community overall! :D

*Edit: So many typos -_-

u/Darkenedsilence · 2 pointsr/playstation

If I'm at home it has very low latency which is good, even the aiming is somewhat accurate (better then I'd expect). Because my hands are leaner than I'd say yours (according to your disclaimer ) its not too bad, no where near as good as the ds4, also the controls are mapped as l2 and r2 are the left and right of the back touchpad and l3 and r3 are the two bottoms corners so it makes it somewhat easier to handle then say having all the buttons mapped to the back (example being battlefield 4) all in all its great for bed side gaming I'd say, also there are grips like these that make it easier to hold

This is what I use. The grip is great, and the inbuilt battery basically doubles playtime. It's not as bulky as I expected either.

EDIT: There's a version for the 1000.

A grip definitely helped me with longer sessions. This is the one I picked up. Works like a charm.

u/PoopThatSmellsGood · 2 pointsr/vita

You should consider getting a grip! Two grips that might be good options:

The Nyko Power Grip is very comfortable and it has a battery in it that can double your Vita's battery life. I don't have one myself, but I've heard amazing things about it. Only caveat is it seems some of their batteries are poorly made so some unlucky people end up getting batteries that either don't work at all or stop working within a month. But it's supposedly really comfortable either way. It might be a bit bulky and take up a lot of space though. Hopefully other users can weigh in on it.

L2/R2 Grip is the one I use. I find it really comfortable, and I love that it comes with extra L2/R2 buttons. It might be an unnecessary luxury, depending on the games you play. It's been super helpful for me though, especially for ps1 ports that require the l2/r2 buttons. Megaman Legends is a game that used the l2/r2 buttons, and the vita port gets around this by mapping those buttons to the rear touch pad. It was a pain in the ass for me to reach around and hit those precise spots, but with this grip, it's no longer a problem.

My suggestion will always be the [Nyko Grip](Nyko Power Grip for PS Vita (PCH-2000) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00G9X4YRM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_ZYJtxbBSK5WNM)

Hey there. If you are on a business trip in Japan again in the future, use Amazon Japan! You can ship to conbini (Convenience stores) near where you work / sleep. You don't pay anything for the pick up. SUPER convenient.

I love my vita but almost never play it. I use it when I travel but honestly lately I haven't been playing any of my gaming systems. If you like gaming and have the free time to spend on it the vita delivers a great experience. My only suggestion is to get something like one of these:

u/Shiiino · 2 pointsr/vita

Just a heads up with buying refurbished vitas:

I've purchased three refurbished vitas- one for myself and two as gifts from Amazon.

Vita #1 came with a 32 GB Memory Card + Burnout Paradise inside of it.

Vita #2 came with a 4 GB Memory Card

Vita #3 also came with a 4 GB Memory Card, and it also came with a custom L and R trigger grip, which I highly recommend if you have larger hands. https://www.amazon.com/Vita-2000-Trigger-Grip-Sony-PSP/dp/B00JYE8L9K

If you're patient, you can get the vita sans any memory cards / accessories and see if it comes with anything neat. On every order I told the seller that it came with extra stuff, but they never cared and told me to keep it.

u/killbot0224 · 2 pointsr/PSP

I probably won't go with grips for a while. I game on the go quite a bit, don't do many long sessions on my mobiles, and like having it be small (well... I did buy a 3DS XL though... so "small" is relative)

If I look, what ones do you have/recommend? Most I've looked at look kind of shit.

(On a related note, the trigger grip for Vita2000 from PDP looks comfy. Hopefully I can find one like it for PSP)

u/DrJuanHWatson · 2 pointsr/PS4

I love my vita, I prefer to play most indies on it either natively or through remote play. Also the PSOne library is pretty great especially for old-school RPGs. Of course PS+ is a must.

If you end up buying one look into getting grips for it. My only complaint was that it's awkward holding the console for long periods of time with out any handgrips (I have really big hands). I bought these and it made a world of difference.

I got this Hori bundle for my Vita a while back, and I love it so far: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00L6AVNE0/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?qid=1453765743&sr=8-2&pi=SY200_QL40&keywords=ps+vita+hori+case&dpPl=1&dpID=51PqIB4QuoL&ref=plSrch

But holy cow, it did NOT cost this much when I bought it. I think it was in the $20 range when I bought it. I can't attest for any other cases, but I really like the hard pouch this bundle came with.

You can purchase it by itself here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00F34B6JW/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1453765792&sr=8-1&pi=SY200_QL40&keywords=ps+vita+hori+case&dpPl=1&dpID=51VDNXHbqhL&ref=plSrch

I don't know if it will fit in your pocket, but the case itself only fits the vita, so I thought it wasn't bulky.

This is a fairly high quality clear protective shell and comes with a carrying case as well. I haven't seen any individual protective shells being sold by Hori in America, but they have two different clear protective shell styles being sold in Japan, Taiwan, and Hong Kong as far as I know, if you're willing to import.

the original PSP could also be played on the TV, just need a cable for it.

u/zandengoff · 1 pointr/PSP

Not if you have a PSP 1000.

If you have a PSP 2000 or 3000, you can use the official component cables.

http://www.amazon.com/Sony-Computer-Entertainment-PSP-2000-Cable-PlayStation/dp/B000VIPJ0W

If you have a PSP Go you will need a different set of component cables.

http://www.amazon.com/PSPgo-Component-AV-Cable-Sony-PSP/dp/B002LH4UB0

You get the added bonus of being able to use the PS3 controller for a more "console like" experience.

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-play-yout-PSP-Go-with-a-PS3-controller/

Do note that video out preserves the aspect ratio and resolution of the PSP and will cause significant black bars on screen. I deal with it fine, but it turns off quite a few people. This can be stretched if your TV supports it.

u/ButtonPounder · 1 pointr/MonsterHunter

Just a heads up to anyone looking to do this; I purchased
these from Amazon and had to shave the hole a bit to have it less wobbly since it does not sit flush. Some reviews stated that it worked well with theirs while some reported that it wobbled a bit.

I researched further and found a few people state that Insten PSP 1000 sticks do indeed work, but it may not be the case with every 3DS; I have purchased a 3 pack of Insten PSP 1000 sticks, but while I wait for them to arrive I make due with the wobble. TBH, even with a small wobble it is still way better than the nub.

u/star_storm · 1 pointr/PSP

The stick itself doesnt seem wobbly only the plastic cover that you actually touch. this part:http://www.amazon.com/Analog-Joystick-Stick-Button-PSP-Sony/dp/B005IF00ZM i can lift the cap up a little bit or have it at an angle. Having it at an angle is what makes it catch. This PSP is as old as a psp 2000 can be. It was my friends before mine.

u/Yarik85 · 1 pointr/3DS

Also keep in mind that you can buy a PSP cap to replace the c-stick :)
I just got one and installed it. Have yet to play any games with it, but at least just scrolling through the main menu is a lot more comfortable with the new cap.

These are the ones that I was recommended as being pretty good:

I also recommend the PSP replacement. I was also nervous to do it, but it was surprisingly effortless and natural. I bought these caps and they fit in flawlessly like they were designed for it.

u/stareja · 1 pointr/vita

If you have or plan on having a physical cart collection, I'd recommend the PDP Pull N Go Folio. It can sometimes be hard to find and tends to be a tad pricey when you do, but it's versatile.

For a digital collection, Hori made a wonderful God Eater 2: Rage Burst flip hard case, but it's crazy expensive (a bit cheaper on nippon-yassan).

u/DemonATX · 1 pointr/vita

u/MissJun · 1 pointr/vita

PDP Pull 'N Go Folio because the included PS Vita case itself has slots for the analog sticks to slide in and four slots for games on the front of the pocket. Functionality > aesthetics when it comes to cases imo. It's a shame it's unavailable right now though...

u/Athryl · 1 pointr/vita

I use the Pull 'N Go Folio, mostly just the smaller case. Only take the big one if I am travelling and need the cables or more physical games. I pretty much always keep it in the little case when not in use. Other than that I just have a screen protector on it.

I didn't pay nearly that much for it though, 20 bucks tops but that was 2+ years ago.

Is this what you're looking for? I bought my original vita off eBay years ago and it came with one like this but mine has no label or markings to indicate a brand or model. I've actually never played my vita without it. It seems weird at first but I feel like it's much more normal feeling and feels more like a controller to me.

u/MrSarcastic69 · 1 pointr/DestinyTheGame

I got a vita the other day for Destiny. Absolutely worth the purchase. If you are looking for a good grip to go with the vita, check this one out. I ordered one and will be trying it out tomorrow. I have heard very good reviews about it. Also, in order to get mine to connect I had to update some of the ports in my router for the PS4. You can find the guide here. You just find your router on that page and then follow the instructions. Very simple.

u/MerryDingoes · 1 pointr/vita

It's not grippy, unfortunately. It doesn't feel bulky to me, but maybe it does to you.

u/Holy_Shit_Snacks · 1 pointr/DestinyTheGame

If you get one make sure to get these grips for it, so much more comfortable to play on.

I like it for light solo missions, bounty farming, etc. It is excellent for mobile casual play. I prefer to stick to my PS4 and dualshock for major missions (Nightfall, Weekly Heroic, VoG where things get really intense) and PVP.

u/LogicalFlakes · 1 pointr/vita

How big are your hands?

Edit: Eh. I'll just throw the cheapest two grips I know of and have used. These grips are for the 1000 model.

PDP Trigger Grip is the only trigger grip that I know of that works well. Good for big hands and small hands. Medium hands... not so much.

CTA Grip is the best non trigger grip for your money. It does what the Nyko Grip does at a cheaper price and... that's all there is to it. It's a grip. The other alternative to this is the Japanese Assist Grip and the Nyko Vita Grip. Great for any size hands.

u/JackBauersGhost · 1 pointr/PS4

u/Spanko321123 · 1 pointr/vita

I have heard that depending on which brand and production run you can get a wide variety on the quality of the Insten type grips.

I have the PDP grip (https://www.amazon.com/PSVita-Trigger-Grips-Sony-PS-Vita/dp/B0072A4JVW) too. It certainly holds the vita secure but over time I grew to like the trigger action less and less. I came to believe that the trigger action felt a tad sloppy and it didn't necessarily recognize each trigger pull. I tried using the Vita with and without the triggers during Killzone and I noticed I just performed better using the Vita's natural shoulder buttons. Still believe it come down to preference.

Possibly the only grip I haven't purchased is the one that adds buttons. I would love to try one of the Hori L2/R2 grips but they are so expensive ($80) I doubt I will ever get one.

u/makemisteaks · 1 pointr/vita

I got the PDP grip and totally recommend it. It's very hard to find and I only managed to get one off of eBay.

It adds just enough grip to the Vita to make it easier to hold for long periods of time but it's very thin and weights practically nothing. Very solid build, and fits perfectly (doesn't budge or anything). The grips are ok. Nothing outstanding, but work well and are pretty responsive.

All in all, I'm pretty happy with it. A pain in the ass to find one outside of the US, but other than that...

Have you tested remote play over the internet yet? Some people don't realize the upload speed required. (at least 2mb/s upload is OK, 5mb/s is recommended i guess)

To run you press the down arrow ..

Otherwise - I use mine all the time.. and honestly the only issue is with aiming. The analog sticks are not nearly as good as the dualshock 4. I added a grip to mine shortly after I got it which helps and there are some analog grips you can try that might help.

Let me preface this by saying I'm not local as I live on the coast of NC so take it as you will.

I actually just got finished wiring my house with CAT5 and setup a server closet with an enterprise router/switch/firewall/AP. Fist and foremost for experience as I'm going for Cisco certs currently. Now I really need a server or two to interface with within the network and looking for options because most of my budget has been blown.

I have a Vita that I was just thinking the other day that I needed to sell as I barley even game on the PC anymore. It's a first gen but the OLED is sooo much better looking than the LCD. I was planning on selling it along with my account so I could transfer over the 25+ PS+ games I've acquired on it. It has a 32GB card and I have a soft padded carrying case for it along with this trigger grip. I also have a $20 PSN card I'll throw in too but you'll probably need to use $10 of it to reactivate the PS+ membership as it's currently expired.

If you're interested, lmk so I can list off all the games I've purchased along with the PS+ ones. Sadly everything is linked to my account as it's all been digitally purchased outside the physical copy of Killzone Mercenary.

It doesn't have the extra battery life, but it turns the shoulder buttons into triggers and the price is right.

It's actually funny, as I had bought one when they first launched. Played the Uncharted game... and that was about it. Well, until Destiny that is. I've logged a ton of hours of Destiny on my Vita. My girlfriend isn't to fond of gaming, and me sitting in front of the TV in another room all night. So I usually will end my night running strikes or farming for materials laying in bed while shes watching some reality shows or something lol. Totally worth it. Although, you will want to get one of these for it. hope this helps. (make sure you buy the right set of triggers for your model. This link is to the ones for the original PS VITA.

u/MorphineBear · 1 pointr/vita
  1. Not all PS1 games are on PSN (NA doesn't have spyro, or crash bandicoot).
  2. Not all PSP games are on PSN either (as far as I know).
  3. (Personal opinion) I don't think getting PS+ is worth it if you only have a Vita. If you have a PS3/PS4 to go along with it, heck yes.
  4. I have one of the grips, this, and it honestly isn't too useful. The "L/R" triggers don't hit in the right spot so it takes some effort to push in. So it's not a must.
  5. Persona 4: Golden seems to be a big choice in this sub.
  6. I would recommend getting the 16GB if you're only playing PS1 games. If you download a lot of "this-year" games, then look to get a 32GB or 64GB. Most games now are about 2-4GBish and they stack up quickly. I have a 16GB since I tend to buy more physical copies than digital.

I like this case and this card holder, which fits nicely inside.

u/ZoopZeZoop · 1 pointr/vita

I have the Butterfox case and really like it. However, I use the Nyko Power Grips, which won't allow me to close the case. So, I bought the Amazon Basics Case, which works perfectly for my needs. Because the Amazon case is not made for the Vita, you will need to carry game-protecting case (e.g., this one) if you want to carry multiple cartridges with you.

u/ghostshadow · 1 pointr/vita

There's a few different ones on Amazon that are pretty cheap.

  • Nyko - Holds 10
  • Bluecell - Holds 8
  • IDS - Holds 18
  • Hori - Holds 12 (hori is awesome)
  • BangGood - Holds 18

    There are a few others but I think these are probably the better ones. Hope you find what you're looking for!
u/techparadox · 1 pointr/vita

For what it's worth, I have that case. I find it serviceable, but I also find it difficult to get the system out of the case if I strap it in with both elastics. While it's not a hard-shell, it is pretty rigid. I've accidentally dropped mine with the Vita in it a couple times, and my system has suffered no ill effects. Because of this, however, I did end up getting a separate hard case for my games, which fits inside the top section fairly well. When I dropped the case, all the games in the slots bounced out, and the next time I opened it I had to pick up the cards off the floor. After the second time, I bought the hard case.

I picked this up off amazon just before Xmas. The memory card slot are actually removable inserts so you can take them out for a total storage space of ten games.

I really like it. It shuts down tight so you don't have to worry about it coming undone even with a bit of rough handling and its pretty streamline.

u/wildtypemetroid · 1 pointr/vita

The Nyko Power grip is my favorite without a doubt, its comfortable and more than doubles battery life, although it is a bit big. Tried the PDP trigger grips, but it made the triggers too mushy and my hands still cramped while using it.

The only accessories I got when I ordered my PS VIta was the Amazonbasics (Sony Licenced) and IMO its perfect.

The only thing id probably get would be is the Nyko Power Grips for the 2000.

Nyko Power Grip for PS Vita (PCH-2000)

L2/R2 Button Grip Cover for PS Vita PCH-2000

Get a set of handles.

Nyko Powergrip

u/Eisrep · 1 pointr/vita

If you're worried about battery life, get the Nyko Power Grip.

It just about doubles the battery life on the vita slim while being an overall great grip--less hand cramps!

As for games, you might want to try out the PSP game Persona 3 Portable (available as a download on the PSN) either before or after P4G. Both games are really good for sinking a bunch of time into--it'll take plenty of flights to finish each.

u/EatDrinkBoogie · 1 pointr/PS4

I'd absolutely 100% recommend getting one of these bad boys.. extended battery life, and it's pretty comfortable to boot. I game for hours on the Vita with this. This one is for the newer slim model:

http://www.amazon.com/Nyko-Power-Grip-Vita-PCH-2000-playstation/dp/B00G9X4YRM/

Big fan of the Vita's remote play feature, too. Works great with the a solid internet connection.

u/whoisthismilfhere · 1 pointr/vita

Get a grip for the Vita. I personally use the Niko Power Grip. I makes the Vita feel very similar to a Dual shock 4, and it adds about 8 hours of game time.

I usually play in my car (waiting inbetween class for 2 hours used to be such shit), in bed or my la-z-boy.

u/indecisive_bird · 1 pointr/vita

I believe that the nyko power grips are already out for the slim. If I'm not mistaken they're on amazon.

If not, check eBay.

Edit: found the nyko grips on amazon.

u/1TripLeeFan · 1 pointr/vita

I have this pre ordered and I should get it the same day the borderless 2 bundle comes out hopefully.

I get these two mixed up all the time. Hori and nyko. I own both the nyko power grips and the hori remote play attachment. I own 2 power grips and use those whenever I play my vita (non remote play). sorry for the confusion

u/LordTwinkie · 1 pointr/PS4

I bought myself the nyko power grips

They are a bit bulky so they aren't for everyone. But there are a bunch of different grips for sale.

/r/vita/wiki/guides/accessories/grips is a good guide


Almost forgot make sure you get the right version 1000 fat or new 2000 slim vitas

u/massiveCan · 1 pointr/vita

Congrats on your new purchase, I got something similar to what /u/SupaBloo recommended:

u/Element0f0ne · 1 pointr/vita

I picked up these from Gamestop when I bought the Vita: http://www.amazon.com/Vita-2000-Trigger-Grip-Sony-PSP/dp/B00JYE8L9K

It's actually a really nice product so far. It's soft to the touch, but thick and rigid enough to hold the Vita tightly. The triggers aren't as smooth as I'd like (due to just pressing down the existing L/R buttons), but nothing game breaking so far. It's easy to attach and remove. I would recommend it for someone looking for grips.

u/forthisisme · 1 pointr/vita

So my few suggestions:

-Case: Depending on your needs (travel, storage, etc.) you might want to invest in a case to hold your VITA. I have a case like this I use for my day to day. I also have a hard case I use for long distance travelling.

-Grip: Depending on your hands and what you're playing, the VITA can get uncomfortable after extended play. You can order these grips or other longer handle grips.

That's it from me. Maybe others will have other suggestions.

u/rebelterp · 1 pointr/vita

Here is the one I own.

http://www.amazon.com/Vita-2000-Trigger-Grip-Sony-PSP/dp/B00JYE8L9K/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1419650935&sr=8-5&keywords=psvita+grips

Its pretty comfortable but I might start looking for something with a larger grip. Definitely better than not using it

u/uncletacoman · 1 pointr/vita

Does it look like this?

http://www.amazon.com/Vita-2000-Trigger-Grip-Sony-PSP/dp/B00JYE8L9K/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1418142434&sr=8-3&keywords=vita+assist+grip

Looks like that would help me tell where my fingers are. I mostly play PS1 classic rpgs and stuff but been thinking about picking up Freedom Wars and a couple other newer games that I think require L2/R2.

u/LOT7 · 1 pointr/vita

I have fat hands not long hands, and I have the PDP trigger grips

http://www.amazon.com/Vita-2000-Trigger-Grip-Sony-PSP/dp/B00JYE8L9K/ref=pd_sim_63_1?ie=UTF8&dpID=41selrRKObL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_&refRID=1NBM1JBT8G0S4BP1XXTS

They work great when I am using the D-pad but, they get uncomfortable when I use the analog sticks. I take the grips off to play games with the sticks.

As for portability, any grip you have is going to make it so your vita cant fit in your pocket. I dunno if you keep your Vita in your bag or somewhere else, but for the sake of argument I think the PDP trigger grips are the smallest of the trigger grips I've seen.

u/fieldstudies · 1 pointr/PS3

it started to make my hands hurt really bad after playing it for hours on end. so I got the grip and admittedly its not the best one and the left side kind of slips after about a couple of weeks of use but its worked as a decent placeholder until I get a nicer one. Here's the one I have They have them at most gamestops too for fairly cheap (for what you're getting)

u/TheGreenHoudini · 1 pointr/vita
u/Fuctface · 1 pointr/vita

Thats fucking crazy, this was like $39 Canadian (So like $3.00 US) maybe 2 months ago. I cant find an original Sony charge/data cable for less than $40 on Amazon right now. Bull Shit. Anyway I have one of these OffBrand, like the PDP (https://amzn.com/B00JYE8L9K) I got for like $10 or so off Amazon about a year ago, its decent quality, no scratching.

u/hellraiser29 · 1 pointr/vita

I got the skin here and i bought the comfortgrip from amazon. I bought a tempered glass screen protector from ebay. If you create a paypal account and add you payment method into that and use paypal on ebay you will be protected by paypal.

Edit: yes for the aqua blue 2000. The same items are available for the 1000 if you have that.

u/Jorlen · 1 pointr/vita

How big are your hands? You might want to get a grip case. It's made the difference for me, my hands don't cramp up at all anymore and gaming is actually WAY more fun now.

There are several different types, but I went for the $18 dreamgear skin. It has a nice comfortable feel, has cut-outs for all the ports and the rear has two bumps on either end of the VITA for grips. No more accidental rear-touch pad hits either.

Check it out:

http://www.amazon.com/dreamGEAR-Comfort-Grip-PlayStation-Vita-PCH-2000/dp/B00KE6DCFU

u/ZToups · 1 pointr/vita

I've been considering these: dreamGEAR Comfort Grip for PlayStation Vita Slim (PCH-2000) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KE6DCFU/ref=cm_sw_r_other_awd_ZCfOwbBHNBTEZ

Not a ton of good options for a 2000 sadly, most of the promising looking ones are for the 1000 only.

u/91PIR8 · 1 pointr/vita

I just picked up the following grip. Amazon Link

It is a silicon grip that wraps the entire Vita. I have the hori L3/R3 grip, but just started playing Helldivers and LBP and needed access to the rear touchscreen.

This grip is pretty good, but not as sturdy as the hard plastic grips. Still comfortable to hold and works fine as long as you're not squeezing it too hard.

u/BansheeTK · 1 pointr/vita

Glad to make you laugh, was the intent lol.

I'll give you a list of accessories i have for the PS Vita that in my experience have been greatly satisfactory.

[dreamGear Comfort Grip]
(http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KE6DCFU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

Hori Screen Protector

PS Vita in Ear headset Sony

64 GB Memory Card

Amazon Basics PS Vita Armored Case

From my experience, Hori and dreamGear are really good products.

i read that the pdp trigger grip was a flawed accessory and got alot of negative reviews regarding the triggers not work half the time. So i'd avoid it till pdp comes out with a better design or you find something better.

u/chinakat · 1 pointr/vita

Just curious, what's a TPU case? If it's just a rubber case then this is really good and comes with the best screen protector out there. For $5 more you can get the carrying case bundle on amazon

u/Jack_Hat · 1 pointr/vita

There are clear vita protective cases. i got a white assassins creed vita and didnt want to cover it up. So that's what I got.

http://www.amazon.com/HORI-Elite-Pack-Protective-Starter-PlayStation/dp/B00L6AVNE0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1411443763&sr=8-2&keywords=clear+vita+case

this is a good deal here. You get a screen protector *HORI is the best when it comes to them. You get the clear protective case and a carrying case (when traveling, putting your vita in your pocket is an easy way to crack your screen.


If you have one of these things already though, there are plenty of different brands of clear vita cases. You can't go wrong.

u/RickAtCU · 1 pointr/vita

I bought the Hori Starter pack that comes with a case, screen protector and plastic cover thing and I then purchased a skin from ebay. I bought two from that one but there's a lot of different kinds on there for $5 to $10 cheaper than what you'd get from decalgirl and other places.

u/amnesiaCuttooth · 1 pointr/vita

http://www.amazon.com/HORI-Elite-Pack-Protective-Starter-PlayStation/dp/B00L6AVNE0/ref=sr_1_1?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1458667773&sr=1-1&keywords=hori+2000+vita+pack

I really like this set. The case is nice, simple and compact. It comes with a plastic cover to put over your Vita and it has a screen protector. I'd just add a second screen protector to the back touch pad, that thing scratches like hell (just buy a cheap ass screen protector and cut it to the shape of the back touch screen).

The only downside is that there's no pouch for games.

u/websurfer83 · 1 pointr/vita

We were talking about protective cases. The one I have on my Vita looks the same as that image that I posted.
Here's the Amazon link.

u/Paradqox · 1 pointr/vita
u/taximan6430 · 1 pointr/vita

Well, out of your choices, I have both and would recommend neither. The pdp trigger grips have a very plastic feel and sound when clicking the triggers. Annoyed me day one, came off day two. The dreamgear comfort grips do not really give justice in pictures as to how large the back humps (bottom of vita in the back) are on that thing. They are massive and very rounded. Your Vita will not lay flat at all once you put it down, it will actually rock back and forth. I have bought all the grips for both the 1000 and slim model vita's. For the 1000 model I recommend this: Aweek® Bracket Handgrip Handle Grip Case for Playstation Vita 1000 PSVita PS Vita - Blue https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MB53DQ0/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_1w8QybWSHQJJ8
For a slim model I gave up on trying to find a good grip as I always just return to a silicone case for it. Recommendation here: HORI Silicone Protector and Screen Filter Set for PlayStation Vita 2000 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00L6AVPLQ/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_hA8Qyb7K16E0C
Good luck in finding the right one for you!

u/Josharper · 1 pointr/playstation

I have the same issue because I use slightly older Astros. I just bought an adjustR Volume and Mic Mute control for PS4 . For my xbox one I had the Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter . Could save you from buying 2 headsets.

u/merph_ · 1 pointr/PS4

I just saw this today in another thread here -- http://www.amazon.com/adjustR-Mic-Mute-control-playstation-4/dp/B0185CVTDG?ie=UTF8&ref_=cm_sw_su_dp

Dug back into my history just to make sure you saw it. Looks like someone went out and made exactly what you were looking for... just use one of those tiny thumbtack mics plugged into this adapter.

u/mellcrisp · 1 pointr/PS4

There is!

Believe it or not, they are actually cheaper at GameStop. Just picked one up for $7.49. Can't believe these aren't a more popular product!

u/DamonAfterDark · 1 pointr/HelpMeFind

Here ya go:

I hope this helps anyone that was having the same issue. I am also using a wired headset that is connected to my ps4 controller. I am sure there is another way to do this but I didn't feel like buying a wireless headset. I found the answer shortly after posting this. I was just messing around with my microphone settings and it started to work. Now I am able to mute my ps4 party chat and speak to my stream audience without bothering my friends on the chat. Not sure how to post pictures of this but I'll describe it as best as I can. Also I am using Windows 10 so I am not sure if this will work with other OS.
I went to the sound recording settings and made the streaming mic I use the default communication device. While making the headset microphone(ps4) a default device. On the remote play app I have the microphone icon active so when I speak my friends on the ps4 can hear me. I use a dongle that allows me to mute myself on the ps4. It is the AdjustR that can be purchased online. It is sold at Gamestop and Amazon.

u/Elgand · 1 pointr/PS4

I literally just bought this -

Dualshock Mute Button

I like my Klipsch ear buds enough to just purchase a separate mute button over replacing them. I also have a set of Sennheiser RS170's for when I really want amazing audio quality and am not using a mic.

u/Rizyq · 1 pointr/3DS

Has anyone used this specific listing for PSP analog nubs for the C-stick replacement? I assume it'll be fine but I figure I'll ask just to be sure: HUELE 6 Pack...

Figure I might as well go with the PSP stick over the thinkpad cap since I have an old PSP1000 with no nub, lol.

Granted, if you want to go the legal route, you'll need a PSP w/ CFW to rip the ISO off the UMD yourself. Or you could just buy the games, then download the ISO, and call it a compromise. Or just download the games if you don't particularly care. I'm not your mum.

u/boobers3 · -7 pointsr/MonsterHunter

Get rid of that nub. It's EXTREMELY worth it. You can also customize your bottom screen so you won't need to have that d-pad there. Here's a link to the cap you would need in case you take my advice
