Excerpt: There is no reason to ever buy a vita. The first reason is money. Its a death trap for your wallet. It comes with no internal memory and the SD cards are only made by sony and are way over priced. If you get the 3g version then you have to spend 30 bucks a month to go online when there is no wi-fi, but the data is so limited it would not last most gammers a day. Only 250mb for 30 bucks.
Summary: The Vita itself is a great system but the 3g version is a ripoff. The reason to buy this bundle would to be get a memory stick, a free game, and the ability to access 3g when and if you ever wanted. The problem with the bundle is that to get your "free" game you have to sign up for a month of 3g. Well no problem you say, sony is generously giving me a free month of it so I can use that to download the game.
Excerpt: As a handheld console, it plays games very well, but it's price is too high, it has absolutely no internal memory forcing you to buy a way overpriced memory card. Furthermore, the battery life is way too low and the handheld needs more comfort to hold the handheld device better. The battery power is the worst problem. A portable device needs battery power. Short battery life is unacceptable.
Pros: Dual Analog Sticks...finally. Gorgeous Screen and Game Graphics.
Cons: Proprietary Sony Memory, Limited Battery Life, EXPENSIVE, Gimmicky technology = Forced Gameplay, Launch titles are ports already available on PS3. 10 years after PSP + other mobile gaming options = Niche Market? NO UMD UPGRADE PATH FOR PSP OWNERS!!!
Summary: i bought this hand held game console as a surprise for my son, yet I am the one who was surprised, the 10 game token has only 5 games on it, it comes up as ten,but when they are downloaded 5 of them say application cant be found when you go to install.
Excerpt: "...the next 2 years unless Sony make big changes it's just going to be another fad, I'll keep to my iPhone games for now, even they are more impressive at times. Don't even get me started on the rear touch panel either, I kept pressing it by accident and when playing fifa that takes a shot, I understand I can turn that feature off, but why include it if it's not going to be any use. ...
Pros: good graphics,
Cons: iffy rear touch, no value for it's worth, all games are second rate
