thats a good idea,i might do that also.
Yeah that's the one thing I regret, not waiting for the inevitable price drop. I really like the Vita, but if I could have broken my foolish need to have the "latest and greatest" I undoubtedly would have saved some money.

Re: So who's buying the Playstation Vita?

Handheld game systems do nothing for me. If I'm going to game I'm going to be sitting comfortably in a chair with a nice big TV in front of me, not looking at some tiny little screen. If I'm out and about I'm hiking or cycling in a park or shopping, etc, and clearly not gaming and if I'm on a plane or a train then I'm reading a book.

No offense intended but I simply see things like this Vita as what you give the kids to keep them entertained in the back seat on a long drive.

None taken on my part. I figure it's different strokes for different folks. At home, I agree, I'm on the console except now with the Vita some nights I find myself taking it to bed to play a bit before lights out. Other nights maybe I'll read.

I also play during my lunch hour. Also when I go visit my parents and I can't stand why they're watching on TV I may fire it up and play for a bit. In my mind, it's just an alternative source of entertainment, one that gives me a little flexibility to take gaming to places where I normally wouldn't be able to do so.

Re: So who's buying the Playstation Vita?

I actually prefer the comfort and convenience of handheld gaming over the television even at home. It's nice to be able to flick the power switch, taking the handheld out of sleep mode (I never turn my handhelds off), and instantly resume playing a game. I can lie down in bed, curl up on the couch, or play while cooking dinner. It also doesn't tie up the entire living room which is good if you live with other people.

And I just plain prefer the games on the DS/PSP over the current console games, so that's a big part of it too.

Re: So who's buying the Playstation Vita?

Ashen is a Youtube commentator known for doing vids about crappy bootleg products. He did an OOB look at a Vita.

Sounds like Sony's pricing structure is way out of whack.
