Playstation Vita

Since we have a thread specifically designed to deal with the 3DS, I feel that it's only appropriate to have one for the Vita too now that it's out.

Has anyone picked one up so far? Which version? Games?

    But then, I suppose too many gamers these days are just "beat it and trade it" and never keep most of their games to replay at later dates.. it's sad.

    EDIT: I suppose my feelings on the subject are due in large part to the fact that I don't see the value in trading them in. Nothing I'd even consider trading in would be worth anything, and I resent the fact that they turn around and sell them for $10-20 or more.. often will throw out the case and manual I took care of, too.



    Nah, I'll be okay. The only PSP games I could even qualify as good were LittleBigPlanet PSP and God of War: Ghost of Sparta. Ghost of Sparta I have in HD on PS3 and I have both the original LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2.

    I never usually trade games in, but these I had absolutely no use for.

    Aren't those lovely? I had mine destroy the disc inside of it because it needed to be moved an inch.

  • Oh gods, I still don't know how the Xbox ended up being capable of damaging the discs cause it got bumped or moves slightly, or that they never thought this would be a problem. We've had disc-based consoles for around 10 years by the time it came out, too.

    My PS1 used to sit on top of my PS2 (now I have a PS2 slim it's the other way around), and the one on top used to move fairly often while running cause I have cats. Never harmed the disc.

  • Seeing as the Vita's launch has been a literalcomedy of errors up untilthispoint, I'll wait until there's a significant price drop.

    Since I can't think of anything other than the Facebook app being a bit buggy and having to be taken down, and maybe some issues with the pricing of accessories and memory cards, care to fill me in on what people are saying is so disastrous?

    Facebook app was taken down? What was so buggy about it?

    Oh, so that explains why the Facebook app won't even load...

  • I deleted the facebook app right away.. it wouldn't sign out... I do not need my kids being able to read all my messages.. some of those are not age appropriate lol

    In addition to the extreme overpricing,there was the Taco Bell promo that caused a fiasco(though it wasn't Sony's fault, it did detract from the launch IMO), laughable overseas sales, the AT&T scalping for the First Edition bundle (not to mention the already stupidly expensive data plans)... Seriously? take your pick.

  • What happened with the Taco bell promo?
