    The PS Vita is supposed to come out in the US in February. Anybody interested? A lot of people like to slam the PSP, but I got a lot of use out of mine. I've been stockpiling games since they won't be around much longer. Anyway, this footage of Uncharted on PS Vita (stupid name, by the way) looks AMAZING!!

    I just heard about it this weekend on wikipedia. I don't really have any opinion about it. Never really cared for the PSP (was a nintendo kid), and hated the UMD (seemed like a bad ... thing? to me).

    I don't really know, I'd have to re-read the wiki page to base an opinion on it (as we all know that all valid opinions are created in the vast knowledge of wikipedia).

    I probably won't get one. I've had two PSP's ...sold the first one cause i didn't play it much..then bought another one thinking i would play it more because i travel a good bit...and now i'm back to hardly ever playing it. ...however being that i'm a God of War fan it was worth the investment just to play the two GoW games on there.

    With that said i'm actually on the fence about selling my PSP now....even though i won't get much for it.


    Does Game Stop take PSP's in on trade?

    I'm sure Gamestop takes them still, but I've heard stories of around $10-$15 worth of credit for them.

    As for the original topic, I got it when it first came out. Once they got hacked, I loaded emulators on mine and never bought a game ever again. With the new phones handling emulators just fine, I rarely ever touch my PSP anymore as it'd just be an additional item to carry.

    I have no interest in the Vita.

    I watched the vids in the OP and looks pretty cool. I like the back touchscreen idea. Seems like a good way to use the touchscreen without your fingers blocking your view. Though, I don't really see myself buying one.

    Sure Uncharted Vita 'looks' amazing, but it still plays like a Tomb Raider knock off.

    Picked up one too after much debate, and reading what NYCHitmn1 had to say.

    Definitely happy with it so far...except NEAR seems to detect me as being in Japan...which I certainly am not, unless SW Ontario was captured recently.

    Don't feel bad, I pickup all kinds of crazy signals from NEAR. When I play Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, I get opponents from Japan that straight whoop my ass. I decided that playing online isn't for me anyways (in that game). It is full of these cheesy ass fighters that just corner you and pummel you with ridiculous combos and you can't even get one hit in.

    Hmmm, maybe NEAR is all part of a Sony conspiracy to help Japanese gamers whoop us North Americans! ;)

    So far I've been playing Little Deviants (not a bad game in small doses for me - shows off the back touch panel well), Virtual Tennis 4 (pretty damn slick for a handheld game), and some of the AR games. Planning to pick up Uncharted as well since I loved the ones on PS3.

    I have Uncharted, but haven't played it much. The controls are pretty cool though. I love how you can tell Drake to climb a wall with finger gestures on the screen. You'll find out for yourself soon enough, I suppose.

    I purchased FFIV Complete from the PS Store, and that has been taking up a majority of my time when I'm not trying to get better at UMvsC3.

    I don't think I like the gestures very much, I guess I have just gotten used to not letting go of the controller and doing it to swipe gets tedious.

    You don't have to use gestures. It is just another option for you (the user) to control your characters.

    I am absolutely hooked on Super Stardust Delta!!!!!

    I never played the PS3 version and had very little interest in picking it up for Vita, but every list of launch title reviews kept raving about it, so I figured why not download it for the $10.

    It is so much fun, and completely addicitive. It used the dual sticks extremely well, the controls are tight, and the integration with the touch and motion controls are excellent without feeling gimicky! Worth a download.

    Also, just thinking, anyone want to exchange PSN names? Always looking to expand my friends list on the PS3/Vita for gaming/leaderboards.

    Picked one up. I absolutely love it. I am completely addicted to Lumines. Super Stardust is also awesome. Uncharted is pretty good, but not great. Rayman Origins is great, if you havent played the console version and like platformers i definitely recommend that.

    My psn ID is GTP_takethewall, add me. just add AF in a message with it or something so i know.

    I have seen them in the stores but will sony back this game system or will they treat it like the red headed stepchild that was called the PSP. I really liked the psp but seemed they let it sit on the back burner too long.
