So there's a bundle at Target for the Vita + Lego Batman for $200, and I don't care about Lego Batman at all but I AM interested in Ragnarok Odyssey. And whenever PSO2 comes out. Aside from thaaat .. not terribly sold.

How do you Vita owners feel about it? I am also pretty interested in picking up a 3DS before October, too. .-. Owning both so early on feels silly.

This is what I'm waiting for as well.

Games on it look absolutely gorgeous, and there are quite a few titles I'm interested in, but I don't play portables nearly as often anymore.

I was very dissapointed with Ragnarok Odyssey...

If you're buying it just for that, I'd highly suggest not getting one. I mostly play PS1 games on it, and Hot Shots Golf. Since I have PS + though, I also get Uncharted, Gravity Rush, and a few others free. Those are pretty fun. But I was HIGHLY anticipating RO, and it just left me with a very bad case of buyers remorse.

The 3DS seems to finally be getting a lot of games worth buying. Like, a lot. I went a year without buying any and now I'm buying like three or four within a few months.

The Vita, on the other hand, still only has one game I'd want. I guess maybe another if I already had a Vita. Seriously, it needs a price drop.

It really does. I honestly see more games I want on the 3DS than I do on the PSV, as far as exclusives. I like my PSV, and do use it daily, but I see more new games on the 3DS that I'd like to play. Only PSV game I really play daily are Hot Shots Golf. Other than that, it's Final Fantasy Tactics, and any other PS1 RPGs I have on it at the time.

That's really disappointing. I don't plan on getting PS+ because I already have Xbox Live, lol. D: Gravity Rush did seem neato, though. I know Amon plans on getting it.

I have two friends super into Ragnarok and are harassing me into playing. There's going to be a Monster Hunter coming out at some point, too, yeah? Though the 3DS is ALSO getting one...

this is so hard ;~;

Yeah, there's no word on if the PSV is getting a Monster Hunter. I'm assuming they're waiting for it to come out on the 3DS so they don't take away sales from that one. Honestly, I'm losing any hope of the PSV getting one at all though... I'm probably going to pick up a 3DS eventually for not only Monster Hunter, and several other games that looks great on it.

I really wanted to like Ragnarok Odyssey, but it was just so bland. Graphics were nice, but the combat wasn't that fun, and I honestly didn't feel any reason to keep playing it. Monster Hunter had me from the beginning but RO was boring from the start, and did not get better.

And yeah, I only pay for PS+ because I'm not paying for Live atm. But it's been pretty worth it so far. Spent $50 last year on it, and I've gotten soooo many games through it. Several on the Vita I didn't have to buy that came out to around $80+ if I bought them on their own. And over $120 worth of games on the PS3 if I would have purchased them on their own. Don't know if I'll resub when the time comes, but I might. The games added to the instant game collection every month are pretty sweet.

PS Vita is getting a 20% price cut in Japaaaaan. It likely means a price cut will soon follow over heeerrreee.

Speaking of Vitas, I had already been toying with the idea of importing that silver one. I really don't need to be spending that money, though. We shall see.

oh hey a topic on this.

So I'm torn on this. I have playstation plus (DIRTY CORPORATE WHORE) and because of that, I have like, seven games for the vita already. The thing is, is those seven games and any other future games worth the asking price? Granted it might drop to like, 200 dollars here in the US soonish, but still, some of the games I've seen are rather lack lustre and despite having a small library of free games, I just, eh. Thoughts?

No, they're not worth the asking price. Wait until you find a game you actually want to own the thing for and those extra games will just be a bonus.

So those of us who do own a Vita and want a cool game to play: Chaos Rings is on playstation mobile for 8$. If you never played it on iPhone or whatever it's actually really good.

It's like a Final Fantasy game when they were at their best. A bit repetitive as you replay levels again with different characters, but the characters are all awesome and in the end you learn to love them.

Got into the Killzone beta. Had to sign an NDA so can't really talk about the game itself.

I will say it is really fun.

Haaaaa. Reading back over this thread, I kind of went from saying I'd be waiting to get one of these to talking like I already had one with no transition in the middle.

Either way, I've had one of these for just over a year now and it's finally starting to see some real use. I ran the battery down from full for the first time only a week or two ago (then proceeded to do that another six or seven times). I still feel it doesn't really compare to the 3DS in terms of library (unless you like nothing but really niche Japanese games), but it's a damn fine piece of hardware in spite of it. PlayStation Plus only makes it better. I still need a memory card bigger than 4GB, though.

ALSO, the console is apparently really hard to find in general right now. To be fair, retailers don't ever carry much of them anyway, but still. It's something different!

I just turned this on yesterday and got an update that added themes. There are three themes available to download off the store for free right now. None of them are great, but it's a start! It not only changes the backgrounds of the home screen and lock screen, but also the icons and background music, too. Nice little change of pace.

The update does some other things, too, but themes were definitely the biggest one.

A new limited edition Vita is coming out in Japan on June 25th to coincide with the release of Persona 4: Dancing All Night. Pre-orders for it begin tomorrow.

Got my Vita today. Grabbed the nicest pre-owned original model I could find (which is pretty much near perfect thankfully), a couple of physical games (Muramasa and Teraway), and a $50 PSN card. When I got home the UPS missed me by like 10 minutes and after a whole fiasco of an afternoon I will be getting my 64gb card tomorrow. Since it's an original model it has no internal memory so I can't do much until tomorrow, but I went ahead and spent my PSN money on some games. None of those games were Dangan Ronpa, but I plan on picking it up in the next couple paychecks (aka when I am not super absorbed in a ton of other games).

A funny thing about the model I picked up too. Apparently I have a 3G model and I found it hilarious when I found a SIM card in it. Like I remember when these things were first announced and how expensive they were for this model and I got it for like $150. Nobody was ever gonna use that 3G anyway. It's like $50 for a months worth of internet that you can't use to play or download games on. You can only use it to browse the internet and send messages. It's useless, but I own one!

If you're not like me and haven't updated their firmware since the start of the month you can easily play any game now on your PSTV.

Not quite. A lot of games are not able to be played, because there's no Vita back touchpad. A lot of those games were locked out of PlayStation TV for that reason. Anything else, though, is alright.

True but the majority of locked games are mainly due to license issues and should still play fine to the end.

1st Donganronepah being a major one, plus a ton of PSP titles.
