I don't know if that's a bad thing, or a good thing.

Remember when companies studied what the competition were doing and their previous mistakes to insure they don't fuck up the next time around?

Did Sony just lose that philosophy along the way? Every time they take a step forward, they look back, wonder what might have been, and turn the car around.

Yeah, I can see where all the anger is coming from now. I just wasn't looking at it in that way.

And I guess so. I mean, it's all about making money, but you think they'd see that they could make more money if they made it more accesible to more people.

All they'd have to do to fix the issue is put memory in the box. Doesn't have to be the world's largest amount. If you're not going to allow many games to even function without one, include a small amount with the purchase and let consumers go out and buy bigger amounts if they so desire.

Of course it's all about making money, but the PSP was a failure for a long time before it finally started to make a profit. I would learn from my mistakes and try to make sure my next product (What was the name of that digital PSP? Didn't that shit fail? So the lesson applies even harder?) is a safe investment.

Hell, let's face it, I might enjoy owning a PS3, but I bought that thing right when Sony finally started to realize that bullet in their foot wasn't gonna heal itself.

I hate buying games that are already cut into so many pieces that I don't get the whole product. The same crappy philosophy shouldn't apply to the machine I need to run them on with the exception of OPTIONALLY upgrading it.

They do include a memory card with the First Edition model but that model is $350 in the states and you can only get it in 3G variety. Canada thankfully gets a wifi only variety for $300.

That's not better. It needs to come standard.

Just sucks. Another factor to take into mind while I pay it off. Probably gonna reserve one next month and start putting 50 or so a check towards it.

That's what I'm planning on doing. It really is dumb that they don't offer any memory with it standard... Seems pretty silly honestly.

or you just can wait until the second generation models get out with a "proposed" price cut and whatever problems that were fixed in the first generation.

Oh yeah. That is an option. If you'd like, I wouldn't mind not taking it. I was fully aware it existed, but it's good to be reminded.

That may just be what I end up doing with the 3DS, too, at this point.

To tell the truth, that may be a better idea on the 3DS.

No, it's really a better idea for both. To be fair, I've honestly waited long enough with the 3DS to finally justify a purchase if I really wanted to, since it's a lot cheaper than it was even only half a year ago. It's got more games than the Vita and I guarantee you the Vita will drop in price the exact same way within a year of release, given the state of the market. There's really no point in having bought the 3DS or buying the Vita right out of the gate. Shit will only get cheaper and better for the Vita like it has and will for the 3DS.

With memory cards having dropped in price drastically since the launch of the PSP, I figured the little storage miracles weren't something my wallet would have to worry about too much for the launch of the PlayStation Vita. With every game for the new system available as a downloadable purchase, I was fully prepared to stock up on huge memory cards to hold every little bit of entertainment I could get my hands on. At these prices, maybe not.

GameStop is currently listing four models of the proprietary card for preorder, starting with the $29.99 4GB flavor and scaling on up to the massive $119.99 32GB model. That's $3.75 per gigabyte, for those of you playing along with your operating system's calculator.

If the Vita is going to be so expensive, I think I'll wait a good long time before getting one.

Within two years, everythings going to be nearly half as much, and I'll have a good idea of what the library of games is like as well.

Maybe when they're second hand. The price of the system will fall, but very rarely do the cost of its accessories drop, too. At least during a system's life.

I would like a Vita, but I'm probably gonna hold out for about a year. Took almost that long for the 3DS to get anything worth playing and the Vita will likely be cheaper by then.

A year and counting as far as I'm concerned, nothing has come out at all I'd buy on the 3DS if I had a 3DS at full price.

Honestly, neither system has an impressive lineup of games, maybe I just miss the GBA and DS/PSP days where great RPGs came out practically every week, but I can count on one hand every game I'd be even tempted to buy on either system.

3DS has some great games coming out now that aren't RPGs! You should look at those! Also I'd imagine there's a lot more dev time involved in games, polygons take longer to make than sprites.

I've been keeping an eye on what's been coming out, nothing that's out now appeals to me, re-buying old GB and GBA games, doesn't appeal to me, and not much coming out appeals to me.

Also I do find the PSV launch titles to be far superior then what the 3DS had. Uncharted, Wipeout and Katamari alone make it slightly better to get it on launch alone.
