Playstation Vita out tomorrow

The new Sony handheld console is out tomorrow. Neve been a big handheld gamer myself (shut it, grynch ), but this is a really nice piece of kit and I am quite tempted (hell, I need to spend my bonus on something FFS). Anyone getting one?

Re: Playstation Vita out tomorrow

I had bought the previous version but that was before iphone + appstore.

Now I do not see why one would buy one if they have a smartphone with a wider range of functionality.
On top of it, I can play with my iphone while others assume I am busily typing an sms or reading a book whereas with Vita I will just be noticed right away

come on, playing games on an iphone is a pita! maybe I'm just old but touch screens just don't cut it, give me a joystick anyday

looks like an impressive bit of kit, seems to have had a few issues though, also using sony's own memory sticks is a huge turnoff as well as the current price.

Re: Playstation Vita out tomorrow

Re: Playstation Vita out tomorrow

You have everything to gain by waiting at least 6 months. I'm going to wait to see if PS3 remote play is all that they've promised. Plus it's selling like crap in Japan and has already gotten an unofficial price drop. Expect a price drop before the end of the year (like what happened with the 3DS).

If I do decide to get it, I'll do just this. I've not come across the PS3 remote play, I'll have to educate myself.

if you are the football player type I agree
but for causal gaming like Dungeon Hunter X, or Real Racing, smartphones are really sufficient

if i ever buy a gaming gear (I m excluding laptops etc) it would be a PS4 when it comes out.. i passed on PS3 assuming it would get upgraded..

Say, isn't there an age limit for such devices?

I'm afraid your witticism is lost on me as I have no idea who this 'ranga is.
