    • To be honest, I might stay away from the Vita until it has really proven itself. Sony kind of let the PSP flounder, and it wasn’t a cheap console.  IMHO Sony needs to really make a push with the vita for some top notch games and good content, or risk losing out like they did with the PSP too… 

    • @e348b8a2d201ec7c6c2d56bc9d50b1d8:disqus : Agreed, I think Sony need 2 or 3 exclusive flagship titles to sell PlayStation fans on a new handheld at the $250-$300 price point. For me the must-have game that might make me pick up the system at launch is Uncharted: Golden Abyss. But I’m worried I’ll play that for 6 hours and then what?

      I’m not sure what I’m going to do with another Super Monkey Ball, Katamari Damacy, LittleBigPlanet & Ridge Racer game when I never finished the ones on PSP. That said, I AM very excited for the new Assassin’s Creed Vita game and Lumines: Electric Symphony!

      I will buy it on day 1, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 & Uncharted.

    • I agree with you as well. But hopefully Sony has learned from their mistakes with the original PSP. Making games like Uncharted: Golden Abyss and others cheaper digitally than at retail is a big step in the right direction. I do think the PS Vita has a pretty nice lineup so far though. You can bet that will be followed with lots of RPGs and all Sony’s big names.

      Looks great, day 1 purchase for me, plus it has trophy support which the PSP never had. Now on my travels I can stay in the trophy race with my friends.

      booommm, hefty price for me…!!! Already $50 to $60 is too much for me on PS3 and steam.

      i better be on itouch. I will think of buying one when its cheaper, may be 3-4 years from release.
