Too slow to post the deal myself! Great price for pre-order and definitely worth it for 3G.

used to love my psp so glad theyve chosen the old design for it! Good price imo, when you compare it to an ipad plus your getting the latest games.

Voted hot.

I'm still on the fence myself. Eldest wants one but i'm more inclined to wait and see if it's another PSPGo style turkey first.

I have pre-ordered with GAME instore, as I have vouchers to use, but hate the fact I will be paying R.R.P for the console when is launches!

Great deal FP, voted HOT!

I think the main competition for these handheld machines now is smartphones. The pricing of the games will have a large deciding factor i think.

think ill wait for the slim version to come out

lazy to rewrite so I'll link instead

wasn't too bothered to read the description for this.

Still not sure I'm going to get one, I have very little time for gaming "on-the-go" at the moment and so the odd moment I get, it's more likely that I'd whip out the phone/pad to grab a few minutes game time than carry around a console for some serious gaming.

I often carry both around with me. I have a much greater data limit per month on my iPad, so I tend to use that if it's convenient to.

Josh

No, I do agree that practically speaking a portable console is more suited for travelling, but the point I was trying to put across in my original post was that the amount of time that I spend travelling (via public transport) is minimal to non-existent. Therefore I currently prefer to have a device which is more suited to gaming that can be played in 5 minute blasts.

For gaming whilst away on holiday for example, I'd prefer to use my iPad, despite it not having any physical buttons to use as a controller input, as I prefer the larger screen if I'm going to be spending an hour or so playing time.

I can see the downfall of this being NO internal storage.
For that you have to buy Sony custom memory cards.

Max size memory cards seem to be 32gb for this and costs about £78 !!!!!

And that £78 32gb stick will be eaten in minutes with digital game downloads, films, mp3s etc

What do you think ?.

It depends on what storage format Sony have decided to go with.
That they haven't said doesn't bode well, and will go some way to whether it fails like the PSP Go has.

Sony haven't announced whether or not it has internal storage yet. AFAIK.

I was reading about the lack of any internal memory here-

"it's missing one key feature: internal storage".
joystiq.com/201…nd/


And I suppose this confirms it -

Sony FAQ
Q: Does PS Vita have internal memory?

A: PS Vita is equipped with the storage media slot so that users can choose what memory capacity they want to utilize depending on their use.

When the PSP first came out a 1GB memory card was £99.
By the time the Vita is released in the EU it will not be £78.

The problem is the £78 price is for Japan and you know how much more expensive everything get's when it comes to the UK prices

If you look at fanpages link to dealspawn

"Note that these prices will be substantially modified when the memory cards release in Britain - and will probably bear little resemblance to the exchange rate".
