LOL. Definitely too soon, unless that is a Japanese cruiser
This doesn't surprise me at all. The mobile/portable gaming market has changed so much since the PSP launched. Most people who are into their tech will have some kind of smartphone now, and a powerful one at that no doubt. Not only that, but 69p for a cheap game, or £1.99 for an expensive one is hard to beat. When I'm out-and-about, I always have my iPhone with me, and occasionally my laptop and iPad too depending on where I am and what I am doing. Do I really want to spend £200+ on another (large) handheld where the games typically cost £30-40, and are no different to what I had/have on PSP and PS3? Not really, no. If the hardware had been around the £150 mark, and games all less than £20, I *might* have given it a look-in. At current prices and with the need to buy rip-off memory cards...nah. This, coming from somobody who normally relishes the thought of owning some hot new tech!Phat boy gone slim!
The Vita is very competitively priced at 250$ considering the hardware. I don't understand why you'd say this.
The 3DS, on the other hand, was highway robbery at 250$.
Compare the PSvita to the current gen iTouch (and it's price) and compare what you get vs what you pay.
Price wise this is how i looked at it:
Seen the official price, was a bit gutted.
Looked at my ipod 32 GB and remembered how much i spent on that and then I realised how the price of the vita is almost perfect, completely worth it considering what it is capable of, especially when a new phone costs over £400( £20 phone + ipod = my needs being achieved at less than half the price of an iphone).
I would happily pay full price for it but waiting for the inevitable price drop as i can tell its not selling all that well. At the end of the day, if it does not have an apple logo on it, it should not be worth over 100£ because its a waste of money...
( comparing to apple as everyone seems to do it, even though the vita IMO is in a different league)

I don't get people with IPads, I've tried and even the best games are $#@!, let put it this way if Hideo Kojima put a game out on IPad, it'll be a high speed finger wiggling action game, even IB is very shallow game, and and 90% are basically Minis, you just can't compare those to the likes of Uncharted or Wipeout, or even LD, in fact if little deviants was on IPad it was be 10% of the game repeated 10 times,
The people that can't see the point in the Vita Vs IPad or whatever are the same people that don't see the difference in SD & HD, they download 128kbps albums and cant hear how $#@! they sound, and it's pretty sad, and a shame it effects everyone in the long run,

Well personally I love some of the games on the iPad + the fact that it's jailbroken and I can play every Nintendo snes and playstation game on it with either my iPhone as a controller or even a Bluetooth controller like the sixaxis and wiimote...make the iPad pretty powerful. Infinity blade may be simple in control...but its deeply addicting and fun even in long play.
I like my vita better of course for the simple fact that it has it's own buttons and a more powerful processor...
But don't write off the iPad... It's not just an app store game console
