now let's see if it does what it did in Japan. After the first couple of weeks sales tanked.

I really liked the PSP and hope this turns out well for Sony but I'm waiting this one out to see how it's selling in a couple months and the amount of quality titles on the market.

Now what if everybody in japan is just waiting and seeing like you are.

In any case, it's tax return season in the usa, and so it will do well here for the time being.

The gotta have it crowd went out and got it. I won't get it until I see some sustainable sales and now is too early to tell. The PSP was a disappointment for me in the game selection standpoint and before I get a vita, it better sustain sales to keep developers interested in making quality games for it. If sales tank devs will lose interest.

Sure sure, with any luck though, piracy wont be as big of a problem for the vita as it was for the psp. If sony opens up their app store to just about any developer and app in the way apple and android have, it will take a lot of the pressure off of needing a jailbreak on the device for homebrew (which could then lead to rampant piracy).

That said, there were enough good games on psp that I am pleased with my original purchase. Overall, while not snes, it has quite a robust library when just thinking about whether my original $200 purchase was ultimately justified.

Just got back from the local Gamestop and the guy behind the counter said he was sold out and it was selling really well. He said the demand wasn't really there right out of the gate but that once people got to see it and hold it sales picked up really quickly.

So that's a pretty good sign.


I got my Unit 13 preorder in!

If you play a PSP game and hold your finger on the screen for a few seconds, a menu comes up with the ability to enable Bilinear Filtering and Color Space and change the functionality of the right analog stick as well as determine whether the front or rear camera is used for games that support it. Here's the official page with more information on playing PSP games on the Vita. Bilinear Filtering makes the biggest difference and it does seem to smooth things out a little bit. Although this is a 2D rather than 3D comparison, here's the difference between having it off and on:

I know of the feature which is why I ask how much it helps... hopefully its more than just a little. Maybe they can do a report back to the system from the PS3 version.. the PSP versions of GOW are the only ones I havent played.

Ive never had first hand experience with psp jailbreak, but from what ive heard the games dont run smooth. I think the psp just wasnt powerful enough to run homebrew completely smooth.

Very nice! The different scoring methods for each individual character is something I didn't even know about. The High Value Targets game mode looks really sick, too! Bosses FTW. This game is going to have a ton of replay value.

didnt expect that at all.

I wonder whether those numbers will double once Call of Duty for Vita arrives.
I have a feeling that game might be a real system seller in US especially.

The gameplay kinda reminds of Ghost Recon 2 but with much better gameplay and AI.

So my Vita is pretty rockin'. I have been playing Uncharted, Dungeon Hunter and Hotshots, and having a great time. I must say though that it is hard getting used to paying $30-$40 for portable games anymore.

The iOS race to the bottom on price has totally spoiled my wallet.
