Got the 3G version here. All the demos Ive played look sweet, Uncharted looks PS3 like. They didn't dumb it down like all the franchises were on PSP.

I'm going to pick up Wipeout, I have HD and Fury and I read that if you own those games on your ps3 you get the HD and Fury 2048 expansion packs fo free! Also you can play WOHD PS3 players on 2048.

The OS can run up to 7 apps at once. You can download while playing games, pause the game check messages, join a party, chat, go pedo on Near, etc. No lag either.

I already got Escape Plan, it's a $15 game. Something the likes of Braid or Limbo.

Wanna get Unit 13, Uncharted and Resistance.

I think the vita has 512 megs of ram and 128 of vram. 512 is huge for a handheld.

Did you never ever plan on buying a 3G plan?? Why even get the 3G model if not? The 250mb pass stacks on whatever plan you buy, the real lame part is the free game code isn't given until after the 30 days.

What are the benefits of a 3G-enabled PS Vita?

With the 3G-enabled PS Vita, you can game with real-time connection and immediately socialize with your community through news feeds and turn-based multiplayer game sessions. You won’t miss a beat since you can stay up to date with continuous scores and game ranking news feeds with LiveArea, compete for in-game Trophies, cross-game text messaging with Party, and connect through popular social apps like Facebook and Twitter, all while on the go. Don’t forget that you can also login to the PS Store over the 3G network to download add-ons for some of your favorite titles and browse new games and content.


I'm torn on which version of Wipeout to get, the digital version or the cartidge version? Digital is 1.6 GBs but it's 10% off on PS Store

One psn game would use up all of your 3g plan, lol. Also downloading 1-3GB on 3G?

at least you can queue up stuff from ps store on 3G and the system picks up the download where you left off on wifi

so, when, lets say a 4gb card gets filled up, and you buy an 8gb, you can just re-download from the store?

so you can't game at all? Either way, you still need wifi to DL and play games online.

Don't think you can do live /real time mp, much like cell phones. They said you can do turn based games, i would assume like rpgs or simple words with friends kind of game, there's nothing currently on the market that does that tho. Hmmm

They said you can redownload as many times as you want to on up to 2 portable systems, PSP/Vita. So if you have a psp on your account and a vita you are maxed out. All you have to do is deactivate the system tho and you can sign in/download to a new system.

I ordered Thrust master VIP case from Amazon. That seems to be the best looking case. It will be released on 27th of this month.
