Excerpt: This is the first portable console I've owned since the battery killing GameGear (though I guess you can technically count a smartphone) and so far I've been happy with it. The battery life is right around 5 hours but this can largely depend on the game you're playing. With a game like Tearaway...
Summary: I've owned this system for months, and gotta admit I love it. It has a lot of games as it stands and some of them are great. But the big issue I have with it is we lag behind other countries on games(and yes I know I could create a second account to get the missing games but too much of hassle and expense). With what games we do have it's a good bit to keep me entertained but I still find myself wanting more to play especially of the classics.
Summary: I bought this the first time around March of 2013. It is an extremely impressive device, that has great strength and many untapped abilities. Its a very powerful machine, and is great for portable gaming. Having said all of that. Many of the games are terrible. So I sold it. I recently bought it again in Early November, because a friend I work with has one, and we wanted to beat each other up online on the Vita.
Summary: Bought this product from Far East Market for my son but I didn't realize he already had one so I returned it. Many weeks later I didn't receive my refund but emailed them several times with no response. I asked amazon to contact them and finally they emailed me back but they accused me of fraud in that I didn't send them the ps vita that they sent me. This was not true at all. They said they would refund my money but only because they sold the one I had sent them.
Summary: I bought the ps vita in hopes of it being a great system with fun games and This year I was proven wrong. To me there are about 5 games that are good. This system has been out for almost two years and there is only about 60 games for it and the games that are coming soon are 10 that are officially coming out from now to January.
