Hallo und herzlich Willkommen zu einem neuen yourPSVita-Feature!
Das mediale Interesse derist zwar sehr klein, die Fanbase unseres Handhelds ist jedoch riesig! Glücklicherweise sind wir nicht die einzigen -Fans in den Weiten des Internets. Zusammen mit einigen bekannten und weniger bekannten Websites und YouTubern haben wir eine Community hinter der Community – quasi die Puppenspieler für Sony Playstation 😛
Um euch zu zeigen, wer denn noch so enthusiastisch hinter dersteht, wollen wir euch die einzelnen Personen und Websiten in einem Interview genauer vorstellen.
Den Anfang macht heute Chris Knight, Gründer und Chefredakteur vonRoundup!
Hier geht es zum Blog -> http://psp2roundup.blogspot.com/
Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with us. Can you please introduce yourself to the audience?
I’ve been playing handheld games since the Atari Lynx and prefer them to console games as I’m generally on the go.Roundup started as just a way of keeping tabs on what was happening with Sony’s new console, then became a happy little corner of the web for those who stuck with it. It has been a rollercoaster ride, but my noddy little blog passed a million views, which is pretty cool and is now approaching 6,000 stories posted – not bad for a hobby.
When did you start noticing about the PSVita?
The day Sony announced it, having owned a PSP since Japanese launch, I didn’t realise Sony would drop it so quickly, but it is still the perfect console for my lifestyle.
What was the reason to buy one and covering news and reviews about it?
For my pleasure, and as I had started theRoundup blog it kind of grew as the larger sites stopped covering the news, can’t believe most large sites didn’t do a review of Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel, just because it was only on Vita and PS3, one of the best RPGs in years!
What was your first game and why?
Uncharted: Golden Abyss, as it was the best looking bundle.
How would you describe the vita’s development since launch?
Slow and broken, but now fun, chaotic and crazy. Sony’s treatment of it has been disgusting, but they’re a business chasing profit.
Where do you see reasons for it?
People still support the Dreamcast and far older systems, so there are years of life left in the Vita.
From a scale of 1 to 10: How much did Sony effect it?
10 out of 10, given it still sells a million units a year in Japan, and perhaps 500,000 in Europe that’s a big audience to address, but its complete failure in America has hurt it badly.
What is in your opinion a must buy criteria for the vita?
You should buy a Vita today because there are hundreds of cheap great games for it, a sizeable supply of the better indie titles and Japanese developers will support it for years to come
If you have to pick one epic moment with your psvita, what would you choose?
Playing WipEout 2048, as close to a full console game as we got
What are your favourite games on it?
Digimon Story, Trails of Cold Steel, TxK, Spelunky, Dragon’s Crown
What are the most disappointed games/moments for you?
Sony stopping in house development
Just a guess: How long do you estimate Vita’s remaining lifetime?
Until 2020 easily, as long as Sony continue to make the console. 2025 as a fan-supported device
Do you have any future plants for your media you want to share with us?
I’d love to do more but writing is pretty much all I’m good at.
Tell me one feature you are desperately waiting to be on PSVITA.
a microSD version
Your wishes for the future?
A Vita2, if only for Japan.
Some random questions: Twitter or Facebook?
Nintendo or Playstation?
Nathan or Monokuma?
Cross, Circle, Square, Triangle?
Circle (of life)
Many thanks, Chris, for this interview!
