    Make the games cheaper, and Sony wins. A + B= C.

    Not if they can't fix their payment mechanism that blocks you if you buy too many games

        Thanks for the link to that forum post - shows perfectly well another great reason to never be an early adopter to these things.

        Quite literally, people are throwing their money at their screens and nothing is happening

        Well played, Sony.

          apparently it's effecting ps3 as well but the error code is different, also you can't pay money via card at all

    needs the games to be a bit cheaper but also needs a lot more titles. but i can see myself getting one in the 2nd half of the year

    the fighting game that uses the camera so you can fight, on your desktop, and pan the vita around to pan the character fighting, that sounds awesome. why doesn't someone do an RTS like that, it'd be endless fun

    I've got one and...

    ...after the build up am a little disappointed. The UX is a bit inconsistent, and not quite as refined as iOS or WP. Kind of like a poorly-skinned Android.

And unless teh gamerz addiction warrants, or the shiny factor, I wouldn't recommend it.

    Moar games?

    I thought you could take ANY PS3 game on the road with you, making the vita a portable PS3. Was that not the point of the thing? If you can, then that would give it more games than any handheld.

      Who told you that? Certainly Sony never said it.

    I thought it would be a massive flop, launching into a world that has moved on so much since the original PSP.

    Seems I know even less about these things than I had expected.

    Well done Sony, now sort out the backend systems.
