Sticks on Vita?


#1

I realize it’s not out, but I was wondering if anyone had read anything about the Vita supporting external accessories (i.e. arcade sticks)?


#2

What would be the point? I mean, it’s supposed to be a portable console, and an arcade stick in 5x as big and 10x as heavy as the ps vita.
Not to mention it’d be awkward to play on a stick while looking at a 5" screen.


#3

I think a “Vita Mount” on an arcade stick and you’d have an actual portable version of a fighting game that’s worth playing. I would counter and say "what’s the point of UMvC3 on a portable system when forced to play with the “pad”?


#4

I don’t think it’s a huge selling point for them therefore will probably go untested until someone cares to look. But it has a USB port on the bottom of it, I will assume that it will recognize any PS3 encoded peripherals connected to it (wireless included). I don’t see any reason why they wouldn’t include such a simple feature, but I guess power issues (since the Vita would need to power the wired stick/controller) might be the only realistic thing I can see holding that feature out.


#5

I wouldnt mind a port to accept a PS3 stick on the vita. With a bracket/mount to hold the Vita on the stick at an angle. Just the optional port so if someone wanted to run a stick they could.


#6

people are already playing ssf4 and umvc3 on a pad, so your “counter argument” isn’t the best one.

Like someone above me said, there’ll probably be some power issues tho.


#7

I realize that, but to have it be the ONLY option… that’s the issue.


#8

I see what you mean, well, let’s hope the stick option is available


#9

Arcade stick on Vita needs to happen - BECAUSE TECH TALK.


#10

$10 to the first person to “pad hack” the Vita should it not have native peripheral support!


#11

Yes! In fact, why don’t we set up a “bounty” prize for the first person to do so!


#12

I’ll leave this right here…

Since it seems like you know something that we don’t (don’t you always), care to contribute to the pot?


#14

Tiny arcade stick? 24mm Sanwa’s? Freaking adorable <3


#15

Sixaxsis + Axisadapter + shell. The PSP Go has the capability to use a PS3 controller, it’d be stuipd to take it out of the Vita.


#16

This means it will likely be taken out of the Vita. /sadtruth


#17

Vita does not have a USB port on the bottom it is a port for charging and transfering data. However, the end of that cable become a male usb so one can try to use a male to female converter to test it the theory. I was at a Vita tour at GA but the people don’t know jack about it nor anything about fight stick. I even brough one up to them to test but they don’t have a converter nor a game I can test it on. TwT Btw, the US model does not have the UMD port.


#18

I don’t give a fuck what the point is, I can’t wait for a Vita ‘arcade stick,’ and I’ll be first in line to pick one up if the build quality is worth it.

I’m picturing a much smaller TE stick with a slot to insert Vita like a SNES cartridge, but who knows.


#19

Mini sticks for constricted travel?? Fuuuu-uck that. I’m not that hard up for Street Fighter action.

Me personally, i think micro sticks for use in conjunction with the Vita is kinda silly. All I want is the ability to use my usb pads/sticks on it and definitely video out, which I heard is still possible.

You heard it’s still possible? Who said? I wanna see!!!
