Hehe, Ya no doubt. I'm torn, because I do really want it. One side of me knows that I am so busy that I will only get to play it now and again and could wait until a price drop or more deals to surface, but the crazy gamer side of me says "BUY NOW!"

Yeah, I feel you. I'm holding out to see if they do a 3G model, even though I doubt I'll utilize the 3G functionality overly much. If a deal comes along before then, I'll be all over it.

Seeing a price drop so soon on the 3DS in combination with all the doom and gloom predictions has me reluctant to buy until a bit more software is released.

Get $20 towards Vita games and accessories on orders between Feb 22 and 23 only. I don't see info when clicking on the link yet, I guess details will go live on the 22nd.

I saw the Vita for the first time yesterday, what a nice piece of hardware, especially the screen. Don't know if I'd run out and buy one right now though.

Ya, I'm having second thoughts about it as well. As nice as the hardware is, I've heard many little annoying things that it does. That and Sony doesn't seem to have a fucking clue how to make good business decisions or what their customers want.

Sony's first generation release on hardware is not something you really want to bite on either. Waiting for deals later in the year, when there are titles out to actually play.

SDm had vita in the flyer. wasn't the weekend to buy one, but it will be soon enough. 20X points on $250 = up to $125 worth (redeeming on the right day)...no where else will ever be close to that deal.

Vita still needs some work on the app part. The browser is junk right now, no flash or html5 support. Can't post on CAG with it. If anyone gets a Vita, don' get Little Deviant the pre loaded game Welcome Park is much better than Little Deviant.

I'm hoping the next Vita model will have TV out. It's the only thing keeping me from getting it, as my eyes can't handle looking at handhelds for any length of time.

Gameplays, reviews, and just havin' fun...

Agree with the TV out and waiting on the next iteration of the hardware. TV out should have been an natural inclusion (very surprised to hear its not). I remember the PSP-1000 lacking TV-out and some company offering some enormous add-on hack that gave it Red-Yellow-White outputs :lol: The PSP-2000 fixed that.

My PSP-1000 and 60 GB PS3 are still in good shape... and I bought a Vita day 1. The 5" screen is pretty nice and I don't need TV out. The few times I ever did that with my PSP-2000 was uncomfortable with the component cables weighing down the system and I had to sit right up close to the TV.

Future Shop has a promo going where it's Trade 1 for any Vita game $39.99 and under. Their qualifiers aren't great, but they do have Assassin's Creed Revelations. Price match EB's $29.99 and you can get those $40 games for $27, even cheaper than tax-free PS Store.

Skipped out on the 3DS to wait for the inevitable revision (whatever form it may take), gonna do the same with the PSV until the revision is complete which will either be thinner, smaller or both. Would prefer a smaller screen as well, since I don't care for large screens on portables (that's what a TV is for) and the better pixel density, the better.

And of course, both will have stuff I wanna actually play.

Note: I hated the 1000 model PSP. My hands cramped more from the weight rather than the ergonomics (which the latter only made worse).

I really don't see the appeal (or sense) in buying gaming hardware on release these days when the only thing available to play on them are ports. Aside from Golden Abyss, the Vita is just going to sit there for months (remember the 3DS?) until it's library matures with some unique titles. May as well wait a good 6 months until games being developed right now are finished which will more than liklely accompany a price drop.

I miss the days when really epic quality games were released alongside hardware (Super Mario World launching with the SNES was amazing). I guess the original Halo for the Xbox was also pretty neat. Now the only reason to buy hardware on release is the impulsivity of youth or those that suffer from Shiny Oject Syndrome, aka, I must buy this now because it`s new and I must have it!

PSP-1000 weighs about the same as a 360 controller.

Not all of them are ports. WipEout 2048, Hot Shots Golf World Invitational, Super Stardust Delta, Touch My Katamari and Lumines Electronic Symphony are sequels. There's also some other original games, but they don't look so hot.

As for the games coming in the future, Gravity Rush is definitely one to watch. After playing the demo, it's the game that got me interested in Vita. It should be coming out in the next few months or so. I believe Little King's Story 2 is already confirmed for Europe, perhaps Konami will bring it over here as well. Other than that, maybe we'll get that 999 sequel and Tales of Innocence R (since we never got the DS version). And yeah, ports. I don't really mind if they are good quality ports for games that come out on the same time as the console version like BlazBlue CSEX, SFxT, ZOE HD, etc.

I've owned every successful handheld since the original gameboy, most of them at release, and it's ridiculous how good Vita is at launch.

I'd argue in one day of release, Vita already has a far better (in both quality & variety) games than 3Ds has managed in close to a year.

Vita is the best handheld device (gaming or otherwise) ever released.

Another Vita deal:
FutureShop - buy a Vita Feb. 22-23 and get a 4GB memory card plus $20 towards any game.

I like this deal better than the FEB, at least you get a choice of what game to put your money towards.

I love my PSP-1000, no problems other than a few dead pixels. I'm not that anal that it bugged me or I would even consider it faulty hardware. LCD panels back then were prone to that sort of defect, so it was par for the course to me. I like the Vita, but not enough to purchase right now. I think I will wait for the next gen to see what Sony adds to it to make it irresistible to me. And it absolutely needs video output. Just look at its features, it's a portable media machine damnit!

@True Kronic I would expect that a new handheld be better than previous generations. But the games at launch, the most important component of any hardware's success, is a bit up for debate. The PSP launch was so-so, and it had "nothing good to play on it" for the longest time. Many bashers would argue it still doesn't :lol:

@Cthulhu8u - Ya, I've been looking at that deal with very tempting eyes. I also prefer that over the FEB. Though I was testing it out and only the memory card gets added to the cart, when you add a game it does not subtract the $20 from the total. Now I'm not sure if it will on Feb.22-23, or if they are just saying it is a credit that you will receive with the Vita. I would hope it gets deducted because I want the deal at the same time.

All I know is that I got called out to the field in the middle of the night and spent 3 hours in the truck basically just waiting. The Vita started looking more and more tantalizing as I waited.

Plus my Shiny Object Syndrome is getting the better of me. :P

Yeah pretty sure you have to wait until the 22nd, that seems to be the deal day at both BB and FS since it is official launch day. Funny that the card is being added for free. Maybe there is currently a FS deal to get a free memory card with the Vita?
I guess you could save all those things in your cart, check it tomorrow and see if they update those items to match the deal, assuming demand won't be so high that the items sell out.

Any "basher" who thinks there are no good games on PSP doesn't have a valid opinion of video games, but that's why they're bashers. I can understand if nothing appeals to them, but 95% of bashers of anything don't know about, let alone understand a single thing about what they're bashing. Goes for just about anything in life. Bashers are just regurgitating bullshit they read, most likely from the gaming media and subsequently gaming forums not unlike this one.

I wouldn't say Vita's launch line-up is up for debate, nor would any reasonable gamer who owns one.

Yeah , it's mostly all I've played since Wednesday, shiny new toy & all, but it's also damn impressive. Unlike 3ds, I'd recommend picking up a Vita to any gamer, not just handheld junkies.
