The early reviews are in! The North American launch is nearly here! The question is, “Are you going to buy a PlayStation Vita?” The reviews are generally positive. A lot of people are impressed with the Vita hardware and its capabilities. Some are not-so-impressed with the Vita’s inconsistent interface. Others are waiting for more and better games to come out.

As for me, I kind of have to buy one. A Vita will help me get some work and I need to keep current. That said, Sound Shapes is the only Vita game I’m truly jazzed about. I’m sure there will be plenty of Vita games that I’ll end up loving, but I’m not getting the “Must! Have! Now!” feeling I usually get when a new system launches. Part of it is that the portable landscape has changed dramatically thanks to iOS. Part of it is that I’m more excited for the iPad 3, which should be out in March.

Et vous? Share your feelings (like a Care Bear) on the PlayStation Vita.

    Uh… no.

    I would be way more interested in buying a 3DS since it has more games I want to play on that system. The only Vita games I would be interested in playing would be Crisis Core (if I can even play Crisis Core on it) and whatever God of War game that comes out for it.

    Yay! I broke a 3 way tie (for now).

  • Smartguy

    No, it is too expensive for a portable gaming device.

    Also no because of PSN.

    I'm intrigued by the new Uncharted game. I need more than that though to buy it. Maybe later.

  • Lunias

    I pre-ordered the Vita and Uncharted, which I will be picking up on launch day. I figure that being an early adopter has its own ups and downs, but remember how the PSP-1000 was easiest to homebrew? That's my personal major reason. I figure hacking it will not take much effort, as it will be the first version.

    I wanna play Magic on the go! Let it be so!

    The Linsanity continues!!! Amazing first five starts for Jeremy Lin. According to Floyd Mayweather, African American players do this every night. According to math, it's an extraordinary start.

      according to NBA history, its actually NEVER been done.

      as far as Floyd goes, i hope "pretty boy" is real popular in prison

        According to NBA history, the Heat will win the Finals this year.

          That's because an Asian-American is leading the Heat. One "only" plays for the Knicks.
