We also recently revealed what's in the box for the PS Vita First Edition Bundle launching to early adopters on February 15th. Today, we wanted to welcome you to our world with this new video.
Guy Longworth, Senior VP of PlayStation Brand Marketing, and John Koller, Senior Director of PlayStation Handhelds, show you everything you need to know to enjoy the out-of-box experience moments after you wake your PS Vita for the first time.
The day we've been waiting for is nearly here! Remember, kids: Never. Stop. Playing.
have played the vita at a special invitational event, is an excellent piece of kit, but cost of games is a bit high though and you cannot play it without buying a memory card and can only have one account on it which saves to card, if you want to make a new account you have to factory reset and start all over again as if just starting out as for the 3g expensive are working with vodafone for this part and have not revealed cost of this as yet but can use any sim in it as long as have 3g in your area.
if not then not worth the price tag of £279.99 better of with wifi at £229.99, the memory cards start from 24.99 for a 4gb up to over £100 for a 32gb card, and can only use a ps vita memory card made by sony.
then you have the games Uncharted Golden abyss excellent graphics but price ranging from £34.99 - £44.99, very steep price, wipeout 2048 great especially if playing on vita and someone on ps3 no split screen both use full screen i.e. ps3 player has his player full screen and vita uses the full screen on vita for the vita player can access your ps3 away from home with both wifi and 3g, but price is definitely a bit steep even with all the amazing features.
I have one preordered for launch (a wifi version), but am wondering about the initial money involved. As much as I like Uncharted, I am not willing to plunk $50 for a portable version.
Don't really mind spending full price as I think a price drop will happen around Christmas to about only $200, but hopefully homebrew will pick up. I've been playing the PSP to get warmed up, and I can't wait to see how much better the experience is.
