    PS Vita North America Launch Thread

    Today is 2/21/2012, but guess what tomorrow is? The official release date of the PS Vita!

    Those of you running to walmart, gamestop, best buy, or ordering online, please post pics or videos of your unboxing and your thoughts about being a PS Vita owner the first day!

    I still gotta wait til next Monday to get my hands on it, since I got the latin american 3G pack for $100 less than it is sold in stores since I ordered it in an online store.

    Netflix, Skype, and other apps will be available tonight. I have not even been able to try out the augmented reality cards because the PS Store did not have the free games for it to download. The PS Store screwed the first edition bundle buyers!!!!!!

    Mine was shipped from Amazon this afternoon, so should be here tomorrow. Unfortunately delivery estimate for Lumines is 27th Feb

    3 games should keep me busy, plus SSD from the store

    Because NA/JPN/EU are all different territories with different deals, different offerings. So threads like these have to be regional in order to avoid confusion on almost everthing related to Vita be it 3G pricing schemes apps and games availablf etc....

    I received an email from Lockerz concerning the Vita accessories I purchased through them using ptz today. They told me the items had shipped via USPS.

    They gave me 50 for my PSP plus the 25 dollar bonus along with the extra 10 percent for using the edge card. And not only that but I'll be playing my Vita tomorrow morning while youre still waiting and hoping for yours. lol

    Given my current financial situation, I'm not entirely wanton with the idea of dropping 250$ on a handheld. As a typical American consumer, I desperately feel the urge to buy one, but I'm hesitant considering any possibly issues the hardware may have- plus the lack of worthy games.

    1) Do you guys know how long the battery lasts both passive and under load?

    2) Does adding music to the library function similarly to how it was for the PSP? It was extremely easy and convenient, and the PSP recognized folders properly.
    Add me on Steam!

    Last night I charged the Vita 100%. I played Uncharted for about 2hrs and my battery life was at 70%. I was actually very surprised that the battery was not drained further.

    Ha, You paid sales tax, and retail pricing. I didn't pay any taxes, and I got the 3g bundle pack for less than the wifi pack.

    But the 1000 is classic. A real quality build

    Yeah, I didn't want to get rid of it, but I literally hadn't used it in a while. $90 for a six year old PSP was a good deal.
