Watch a Sony Computer Entertainment employee unbox the today released, brand new PS Vita handheld!
This video unboxing shows the First Edition Bundle for the PS Vita 3G/Wi-Fi system that arrived a week ago in the USA, but of course the system itself is the same, so have a look at what’s in the PlayStation Vita’s box!
Note that the PS Vita normally does not come with a game packed in, but most retailers will have game packages or discounts if you buy a game with the system with them. The briefly discussed 4GB PS Vita memory card is also not packed in with the regular PS Vita edition you’re buying from February 22 onwards, but it is always required to have a PS Vita memory card in the system, since you’ll have to download system update 1.1 right away. And the packed in set of AR Play game cards to enable augmented reality, only play with a host of free minigames you have to download first.
I recommend at least a 8GB PS Vita memory card to go with the system, so you can download a few games and app (which are much smaller, Netflix is only 12MB). The 4GB can only hold 1 big game (like Uncharted: Golden Abyss at around 2.7-3.3GB) and then it’s full. Not all games are that huge, though, some games like Lumines: Electronic Symphony are only 772MB. So if you want to have the choice between a handful of games at any given time, I recommend picking up the biggest memory card you can afford as they go up to 32GB. Which is what I’m getting in the hopes it’ll hold around 15 games.
