Playstation Vita
 
Anyone here got the PS Vita?

am thinking of getting the first edition bundle:

though it is a bit expensive (like $349.99)

Although it does look like a cool system

anyone here play it yet?

Cool, yes.
Expensive? Very.
Last I heard, it doesn't come with the required and rather expensive memory card.

Not something I'll be getting, personally.

There's already reports that Japanese developers are giving up on it, but I don't know how truthful they are. Sony says they're "exaggerated", which isn't exactly a stark rebuttal.

I thought about getting one - but I got a PSP release day and didn't play it near enough to warrant the money I spent on it. Sony's treatment of early adopters (RE the phasing out of UMD, issues with functionality on firmware updates, etc) doesn't exactly make me want to jump on a Sony portable again. :(

Only if I can hack it.

It's a box with Sony on it - it may take some time, but it'll happen. :)

I am sure, but you may eventually get sued shortly after and the suit later dropped

PSP was good
PSP Go not so much (no UMD capability)

good old onion reports. NSFW

did not test it yet but saw it in the ads and first thought was it'S the old PSP ....

In general I don't think there is not a market for PSP developements as smartphones offer also plenty of gaming options

It dont interest me and I dont see why i would wanna get one. things like this will become less and less used as phones get more powerful. They will do same things eventually.

Well I got the PSP when it first came out and if it wasn't for GTA it wouldn't have lasted more than a year for me haha. But I think I'll pull an extra design project to get the money for it, since it looks awesome. But knowing sony it'll be canned within 2 years of it being made and go the way of the PSP (1).
