Hey so I am going to be buying the PS Vita from somebody on craigslist, and I want to make sure I am not going to get scammed or anything. So my question is, what should I look for on the system to make sure it is not messed up in any way. Like what are some common things that go wrong with them?

Thanks in advance for any replys

Test a game on it, and check to see if it can connect to wifi and go on psn.

^^what strawy said.

Definitely test the wifi, touch screen, camera if you care. When a PSN ID is banned, the system is banned so make sure to sign in that it isn't banned.

Make sure you get the power brick and the usb cord. Those two cables connect to each other and you'll need both to charge the system. They are proprietary so they aren't cheap to replace.
