What is that? Looks like its just some stickers. Would be dope if they had a LE camo one like they did for the psp.

Not sure about the rear touchpad, but I'll be picking up a vita based off dual analogs alone.

Im gonna hold off on pre ordering a vita, 1st week sales of the vita in Japan did real poorly during launch.

i'm kinda put off all portable gaming now. it's 2012 and still battery life is not a priority in dedicated portable games consoles. why make it easy to carry around if the battery lasts 3 hours in regular use? or 5 hours when you turn everything down to 1?

reasons im interested in the vita (or a portable gaming device in general)

1. plane/bus rides. my job has me travelling a lot so i have a lot of down time.
2. bigger screen. i mostly watch movies on my iphone when travelling. its cool but i wouldn't mind a bigger screen.
3. phones are great for games. but only certain genres work for the touchscreen only format. i have megaman 2 on my iphone and its fun, but so frustrating.

i saw that too. i wonder why it is. do u think it was just poor launch titles? i plan to use the vita primarily as a media device with the option to play some legitimate games.

actually, i think my ideal device would be an unlocked samsung galaxy note. but it's like 2 - 3 times a much as a vita, and well... can't play real games.

i've heard the sales drop was because of no monster hunter. a lot of japanese people are still using psps for this reason. doesn't help that it's on 3ds at a cheaper price either.

also i read they kept running out of memory cards but not vitas?

Vita and 3DS both have HORRIBLE battery life. with all the shit turned off and darkest backlight setting you're only gonna get 8 hours tops and realistically it'll be less then that. Pretty impractical for bus or plane rides. My iPad getting mad hours of battery life with wifi and netflix running. Vita with 32GB memory card is over 400 dollars. Add a game or two and you're looking at 500. That's pretty expensive for a portable gaming unit.

no worries, planes these days have USB at each seat to plug into a power source.

Too much 3ds talk up in here. Supposedly some gamestips and best buys have demo units. I managed to score a Jp wifi unit with mvc for $300 shipped. Should be here in a few days.

lol just couldn't wait huh? 300shipped that's hella good.
yeah i might go try it out.
I don't know why i cant just preorder on the site and pickup at the store.
anyone know if it's gonna be a midnight release?
February 07, 2012 @ 06:13:57
I feel like the vita is going to drop in price soon after release, So Ima wait for that, really only want one just so I can have it, maybe play the uncharted game on it or FFX on the go.

I think you guys are wrong about the price drop. Jp retailers are cutting prices, but not Sony themselves. US is already getting them quite a bit cheaper than over there. Wifi is like $320 and 3G around $390. I think part of the reason for the poor sales is that the launch line up is more geared toward a western audience. Once a monster hunter drops they're gonna gobble that shit up.

It's just like anything else though. 3ds price dropped 5/6 months in. If youre gonna wait for the vita to go down then you might as well wait for the eventual redesign too.

This device hasn't been doing good on sales over at japan.

it's to expensive as of right now

at the moment it looks like
3DS>Vita

I got my ps3, so it's all good

February 08, 2012 @ 21:07:06
I might get a 3ds if they release a pokemon 3d...but idk.
February 09, 2012 @ 01:16:02
yeah ya'll hatin', just because you guys read about the sales at japan doesn't mean in US it's gonna flop.
February 09, 2012 @ 05:52:45
it sucks sony comes out with a new memory stick it cost so much more than other current memory sticks.

size comparison of the gamebox with a ps3 gamebox.
i'm just upset that it didn't even have a game manual booklet.
February 10, 2012 @ 00:22:42
all they need is a FFVII remake for this shit, i kinda want it but the games so far are shitty
February 10, 2012 @ 05:15:03
Will buy it when they make a Gran Turismo. Maybe if they put more PS2 games on PSN and they're compatible.

The system itself looks nice, the hardware inside sounds nice, but there's really nothing to 'sell it' to me. I think I'm going to wait 'til Q3 to see what's available in terms of Tegra 3/similar QC 7" tabs. Was never a fan of having a screen between my hands, so a tablet coupled with a Sixaxis makes much more sense for me since I can rest the screen on my lap. Not to mention that a Q3 tab will probably be seeing MicroSDs of 128GB or greater, that will be far cheaper than the Vita cards.

^so you weren't a fan of the gba? loved that system and just about all of its iterations. something about having a tablet in my lap while playing on a gamepad seems like it'd be awkward to me.

i've been wondering about those ps2 classics they have on there and if they'd work on the vita. haven't been able to find out from my searching. does anyone know for sure?
February 10, 2012 @ 18:31:34
no idea but have crash bandicoot back would be cool.

I had GBA for less than a week before I flipped it. Bought an SP and loved it, clamshell and backlit were sellers. And the PSP, I bought it for MGS: PO and a road trip, barely used it. Sat in a drawer until I flipped it.
