Summary: I love this Vita! It's actually really nice to have a color option, and to stand out from everyone else's Vita. The only obvious difference I can see between this one and the US version is the X and O buttons are inverted on the main menu, the settings, and PlayStation Store. Still works the usual way for the games. As for this being the new Vita Slim even the LCD vs OLED doesn't phase me.
Summary: I already had the ps vita 1000 in black. So I wanted the white one. They are not yet available locally but I found them here on Amazon! Great thing about the vita it is not region locked so there was no worries about games not working. Its awesome. Yeah, I paid 50 more bucks but it was well worth it. Vita 2000 is awesome!
Summary: Love the "Lime Green" Color. It's more of a highlighter-yellow than lime green, but that was the color I wanted. It definitely stands out among my friends' Vita systems. The only thing to consider is that the X and O buttons have reversed functions in some applications as well as certain menus in games.
This is what online shopping should be in every sense!

Summary: I am so amazed at how pleasant the experience has been from purchasing from "NEEDS"! Not only did the product arrive extremely fast (4 days) the product came in terrific packaging with a nice handwritten "thank you" note waiting for me inside.The expected shipping was anywhere from July 21st to august 11th and I understood why. A trip from Japan to the US often takes time but I ordered on June 20th and received it on the 24th!
Summary: This PSV 2000 is a little bit more expensive than in Japan. But you can not get a white version in the U.S.. It works well. Sony USA always sells black PSP, PSV which is a stupid decision. Compared to Asian PSV versions, American black versions just like old Ford black cars. Sooner or later, Sony USA will kill itself just like Ford's history.
Summary: I love the lime green/white color. The slim version looks much sleeker than the first edition and it is lightweight. I do notice a change with the screen (a little more washed out). But if you never saw the original vita you wouldn't know the difference.
Summary: I was nervous buying this item because I live in America and thought for sure I would miss out on some features like remote play being that this was a Japanese model. I wanted the white slim bad enough, I thought I would give it a shot. Fear not, I've used and tested every feature, and it all works seamlessly. It truly is region free.
