    After 2 years I now have a Vita

    So there we have it, it only took me 2 years a substantial number of free games built up in my back catalog of Plus titles and a decent price. Today I bought the Vita Slim.

    180 for the console a 16GB stick with some preloaded games and a starter kit with a case. Think that was a decent deal. Only disappointed I couldn't get the original model with the OLED screen.

    Currently updating the firmware before I download Uncharted and Gravity Rush first.

    Now that I have this and the 3DS, my next hardware purchase will be the PS4. I'll probably wait until after E3 for that though.
    Trophy-licious!

    Great deal. At least you got a slimmer, and hopefully more comfortable model.

    There is a ton of PS+ games. I got mine for Christmas and have been adding all free PS+ games to my download list from the PS3 since the vita launch. Almost filled a 64gb card when I got the vita. lol

    Ironically my hands are quite big so they have been cramping a little bit on the smaller design.

    So far I've been having a lot of fun with it, only have a few gigs left on the storage after installing a selection of games. (Uncharted, Gravity Rush, Modnation Racers, New King's Story, Hotline Miami, Guacamelee and my obligatory copy of Final Fantasy VII which I need on all my Sony devices. )

    So far Uncharted is gving me the most console like experience on the device, and I'm having the most fun with Gravity Rush and New Little King's Story. Haven't played Guacamelee yet and I've only played Hotline Miami briefly on my PS3 (So I had the crossbuy version of that).

    I want to buy Tearaway...but something tells me it will be part of Plus soon enough, maybe during E3 month. I want to get Persona 4 Golden because I never played it on the PS2, though I'll probably wait to finish a couple of these games first. I'm really pissed that Final Fantasy X isn't crossbuy, because I'll definitely be buying that soon for the PS3.

    I wish they would bring Spotify to it too, I signed up for the 30 day free trial of Music Unlimited to test out the background musiic feature with a reminder on my phone to cancel it. I have always used Spotify, that's just what I prefer.

    Other than those minor gripes, I really love this thing so far. It has that Sony production quality to it, and now that I actually have one I won't be complaining about any time spent on it at E3.
    One of the main reasons I got it was for the remote play second screen once I do eventually get a PS4. Going to be sweet!

    EDIT: Got to love how easy it is to get screenshots from the thing now compared to last gen. Just emailed this to myself straight from it.

    Get a grip!

    errr.....that sounds insulting.

    Seriously though....I have big hands as well (reference avatar). I bought a grip for Vita and it really helps.

    Here are some:

    I'm having the grip-issue too, and it's the normal model (not the Slim edition). So I'm going to grab a grip as well

    I also like some background music when playing multiplayer (Killzone mercenary - which I really enjoyed) and thought about realising that with Tunein. But apparently you can't run Tunein and a game at the same time... shame.

    But it's still an awesome and powerful handheld.

    I got the CTA grip for my phat vita. Though I forget to use it sometimes.

    I use TuneIn a lot with various devices and situations and I hoped I could use It for background music too. But no. :/

    I just tweeted TuneIn asking if it will be possible in the future. Wonder if they're going to answer *fingers crossed*

    The grips are a must. I can't believe how much nicer and easier they make it.

    I still have 4 OLED Vita's lol. Selling one to a guy at work when he can score up $120 for it.

    They really don't sell too well in Australia, plus most of the used ones I've seen have only been touched a couple times, its all about location.

    Think I might actually get a grip for it, as long as it's not too bulky.

    Got to say I love the snapiness of the device and how quick it is. Been playing Guacamelee all afternoon, being able to snap quickly to the trophy list is brilliant.

    I can't get background music from Music Unlimited to work for some reason though. I've got a small playlist downloaded and available in offline mode which is what you are meant to do. The music still plays when I press the home button, but it stops the moment I try to go into another game. Anyone know how to fix that?

    I sort of have Steam syndrome atm. Got way too many free games to chose from. I've been jumping between them all day. Really need to just stick with one until it's beat.

    The slim is much more comfortable to hold thanks to the bigger finger pads on the back but you can get grips for it:

    That's a bit steep though but there are grips out there for it.

    Nice purchase, I have had mine for about 3 months one and still love it to bits! Those grips look quite interesting, might have to invest in one of those!

    Thanks for the link, I have the trigger grip for my phat vita and was unsure of going to a slim model as I didn't know there was trigger grips already made for it. Brilliant
