exactly 10 posts by my count.

Post was off topic and unnecessary, but I wouldn't go so far as to insult him, calling him an idiot, simply for finding the Vita library a tad lacking.

Regarding MGS:HD retail... It looks like it might be out of print. I got a used copy on half.com for 27 shipped. I wanted a retail copy so this was my only route. I believe there was a new copy for $40 as well.

I am going to have an eye out for it then. I had no idea it was out of print

I have seen any deals on the regular version. I just got the silver anniversary one in good condition from AWD for $34.

Should I buy a Vita now or wait for the 2000 model?

Most of the "New" listings on Ebay are from the UK (notice the rating system is different on the box art).  Be careful when purchasing if you want a U.S. copy although I think I saw a listing for the UK version saying it was compatible with U.S. Vitas.

I think the main advantage to Vita 2000 is just the battery life and ever slightly slimmer. Does anyone know if the LCD is as susceptible to burn in as much as the OLED?

I have been spending hours eBay and Craigslist lurking trying to find a really good deal on possibly a White Vita... think I might've found one in my price range... really not looking to spend more than 175. I've seen them as low as 120-130, just gotta keep looking. I wanna play Dragon's Crown so bad for some reason, but want it on the Vita since I don't really have room for my PS3 in here anymore. #firstworldproblems

tigerdirect has a 3g vita for $179 but you can get a $40 rebate which brings it down to $139

getting a vita for under 175 shouldn't be to difficult. Also dragon's crown looks amazing

Well, the White Vita with the original packaging has been very difficult to find. I am really nervous about buying any system without its packaging... I can definitely get just the white Vita for under 175, or I can get a black one w/ packaging for under 175... but can't seem to get the white w/ packaging. Ugh. lol.

Vita 2000 is better imo. I am using it with my main US PSN and relegated my AC white to JP PSN (which I use less often).

MLB: The Show is down to $6.66 and is Prime Eligible. Grabbed one cause you can't really go wrong for the price.

Except the price is the mark of the beast, so clearly something is off. Also more importantly, the game is about baseball.

What exactly is better about it? I know it has better battery life, but isn't the screen not as good as the original?

The screen doesn't matter when you are playing the game and not comparing them side by side.  I would liken it me (with a plasma TV) telling everyone else (with LED LCD) that they are playing their consoles on inferior screen.  

 

What the 2000 do well is it is easier to travel with. 

1. lighter, easier / more comfortable to hold/play/travel with  without grip etc (including L/R and start/select button feel.  

2. longer battery life, which by itself is just OK but combine with the next, win/win

3. USB port. Who want to lug that huge Vita charger around? USB port charging is more convenient than you think. charge at work, charge at hotel/anywhere you go because after all, who do not travel with a usb cable? or at least can easily find one if you lose it.

4. louder speakers so you don't need to always whip out the headphone.

5. subjective. but it looks sleek.  Where as Vita is like 90s high tech with silver plastic trim around it, 2000 looks like a modern device.

And the box art look different too.

I hope so, i ordered one of the UK version from amazon and i will like to import Sword Art Online Vita game.

At soon the game arrive will report back.

Just a heads up if you're a trophy whore, but the MLB the Show 12 servers were taken offline in September for both the Vita & PS3 versions. If you like platinum trophies, you won't be able to earn it anymore since it had online trophies.

while this is sort of true (you won't notice if you don't have the other) you're really underselling how beautiful the original oled is.  bright, vibrant, and better with 'motion' than lcd (no ghosting, or anything of the sort).

 

from the sounds of it, both versions have their supporters, you can't really go wrong.  but i'm sticking with oled.
