    Also, I feel so lost. Which 2 games would you guys recommend? I have $50 to spend and have my eye on Escape Plan and Modnation Racers, the latter for it's replay value. With the Vita I want to be more careful with the games I buy, want to make sure they'll last a while. Which is why I'm going to wait on Uncharted for now... love the series but I doubt I'll play it more than twice.
    For a gaming device and what is basically version 1 of the firmware it's pretty good. We can only hope they listen to the complaints/suggestions and improve it from here on out. Early Android was a piece of trash, so at least Sony has a good base to go on from here (though, we don't know if they will -_-)

    As for games. I haven't played Escape Plan but I've heard a lot of good things about it. Regarding Modnation, I would recommend downloading the demo and giving it a try. Although the graphics are sweet and the game is generally quite fun, for a kart racer, it suffers from low FPS which dulls the entire experience down for me

    For your $50 I would recommend WipEout and a PSN game such as Escape Plan or Super stardust delta

    I'm disappointed in OLED technology...at least in pitch black dark.

    Is that a transition screen, or is there something actually being done on the vita at that point? I saw the blotches last night in the dark, but I've never seen it while I'm using the vita if that makes cents. (yes i did that on purpose hehe)

    No, mick, it's when there isn't anything being displayed on the framebuffer. I'll try and get a video or something of it later.

    I noticed it and thought it was my screen protector. Big blotches all over the screen.

    it's not a pitch black picutre... lol. It's when there isn't anything on the screen at all, no black pictures, etc., and it's just a powered oled. It's a characteristic of the screen, there's no way that your PSV doesn't "have it".

    the puzzle slider on welcome park is $#@!, doesn't feel like it responds to the touch screen very well. oh and not being able to turn off standby is a nuisance when it comes to mini games on super stardust when your just using the motion sensor to control everything.

    apart from that it's all cool beans

    I've found a couple for hustle kings. Got them both quite early. How do these gifts even come about?

    ~If someone in your vacinity plays a game, say Hustle Kings, and you track said person through Near - the gift is yours?

    Also, gifts seem to have an expiry date? Near is so confusing now lol

    If you purchase WipEout 2048 for the Vita and you also own WipEout HD/Fury on the PS3 - you will be entitled to free DLC for 2048, which basically includes the content from HD/Fury to use on the Vita

    So yeah, an aspect of the game is free if you own HD/Fury. But you still need 2048

    Sometimes while playing games you will receive an option to drop Near gifts. When you or others refresh Near on your Vita, you can find or discover these gifts. You then choose the gift and you can download them.

    The only things that have disappointed me so far are;
    1. Price of memory card and the fact that it's likely I'll need a lot more memory than first thought
    2. Inability to tether my mobile using joikuspot app
    3. Size of mains power transformer (iPad will charge with just the plug, why does the vita need such a chunky adapter?)

    Apart from these I'm very pleased with it.

    My smartphone tethers to my Vita without a problem

    The Vita's battery probably requires such an adaptar to power it. The next iterations will proabably not have them
