[QUOTE="kipsta77"]dude i love ur sig about the 360 ehehehe.

seconded. I'll be waiting it out. I'm really interested in it, but I also own a PSP and that reminds me all too well that Sony doesn't always come through. Well, in reality they've come through multiple times, just not this once. But that one time was with their one handheld, so it bears to be a little cautious, no? For clarity, I'm not so much disappointed in the PSP (I enjoy my library) as I was told at launch that it would become a much better platform than the great rpg port machine it is now. Luckily, I'm all about RPGs. The thing I'm truly most interested in the Vita? Bakc touchscreen. I'm lefthanded and that could really do wonders for the ancient old right sided face button mechanic limiting my abilities. I do say 'could' though.

I will pick one up when I can get both a Vita and a 32Gb memory card for $270 or less. until then, I will ignore the Vita. if they start using online pass like they do on the PS3, I may just skip the Vita all together and either get a 3DS or no handheld at all.

What the...? You can get a PSVita for $249.99 (Wi-Fi model) and a 8gb memory card for $29.99. That's $279.99.

I had a $150 Gamestop gift card and picked it up last night. So far I'm statisfied. Took advantage of Target's "Buy 2 get 1 free" on all Vita titles. (Uncharted, Lumines, Fifa Soccer)

They already have online passes.. and i dont get the complaints. Buy games new instead of screwing over the developers?

To be honest he says the same thing in every thread where there is a discussion of whether to get one or not or if it's worth it. He's beginning to sound like a broken record. As for on line passes I don't get why people have to whine and complain about them. It's like they think it's their god given right to play online. It doesn't matter they bought the game second hand for which the developer/publisher doesn't see a dime. Not to mention running online servers costs money. Someone who buys the game second hand isn't paying any money either towards the development of the game or the running of the online servers. It's totally fair for them to at least get a little back by charging a one time fee to play online.

It isn't screwing over the Dev and lol at gamers these days being brainwashed with this stupidity.

These threads are a broken record, so naturally my response would be a broken record. get over it.

Got mine on the 15th. No regrets.

Day 1 purchase. Love it. I'm slowly migrating away from consoles.

I got my VIta for only $48 (Had $200 in Best Buy RZ certs) and I feel like I robbed them lol. I would of easily paid the $250 asking price if I had to. I'm loving it so far. I do feel that if it doesent sell too well that they might do a price drop in the near future though (Like the 3ds). So its pretty much up to you if you have the money to blow on it. If you do then its an easy YES.

i got the psp 1000 on launch and its still kickin'. That thing was great and still is... ill definitly end up with a vita one way or another, but ill import a memory card cos theres no way im paying that much just for a memory card.
#27 Posted by R7_3 (1565 posts) -

I just got my Vita yesterday, and I absolutely love it! I was always a little bit disappointed with the PSP, but I'm really loving the Vita so far. :D

the launch titles are mediocre. So no I won't be getting one. Not now at least.

I've had my 3G WiFi model for about few days now and NO regrets thus far! Worth it? If you want a budget handheld... Nintendo. If you want HiDef and processing power... $350 - $450 is an investment (if you're serious about it)

you must have gotten the Ninja Gaiden game.

I am going to buy it after a few system updates. I learned that it's frustrating to buy a system before all its promised features are available.

No. I don't intend on getting it until the price drops, it honestly doesn't seem worth its current PT do to lacking Backwards compatibility or a means of getting the games I already own on my PSP on the Vita. I mean I wouldn't mind paying 13 or so bucks to get the games I actually like/own to have them transferred over but America didn't get that :/ and I've also learned not all the PsP titles will be available on the PSN. Seeing my PsP is shot I might as well get a new 3000 until the Vita drops in price, when that happens I'll think about getting me a Vita :3
