Anyone got a PS Vita??
I had a PSP for 5 years and absolutely loved it until the toggle switch died on me and the only way to fix it was to find a used PSP and scavenge the parts. Prior to the Vita's introduction I got an iPad and while I love the pad the gaming options are somewhat suspect in terms of games, play and image quality compared to what I got on my PSP.
On my PSP I tended to stay with sports games (Tiger Woods 10, Madden football, NHL 10, FIFA 11) and did try some of the Brotherhood in Arms/war games. I knew it was time to start looking elsewhere when game choices started to shrink.
I have a couple of questions if someone has a Vita.
1. Can I use PSP games/are PSP games or cartridges compatible with Vita?
2. Do you guys like your Vita?
3. Other then gaming what else can be done with the Vita (trying to see if it really makes sense to get one)?
4. I saw an Amazon deal for boxed set of the console, 4 MB memory card, battery and Madden 13 or Uncharted Wi-Fi bundle for $200 - is this a good deal?
5. Game choices - are there a lot? Is Vita a medium that SW companies are writing to?
Thanks in advance for any info.

I know a lot of people who have it and enjoy it.. Old PSP games are not compataible I dont think... ALSO PSP games are better on the vita then they were on the PSP... Go to best buy and try it out... Its all personal prefernce. (I also play mainly sports games)

So I got the bundle pack that included Madden 13. Love it. Have only had time to play Madden and not really see what other features the Vita has (camera, music import, etal.) but I plan on checking that out this weekend. Graphics and sound quality are 10x better then PSP. For that alone it is very good.

Congrats on the purchase. I've been tempted to get one for some time. Money is always tight for me, so That has been a big part of not getting one yet. I think if their memory cards weren't so expensive it would be an easier purchase. Ridiculous what they did with those. Glad you are liking it. I've really wanted it for MLB The Show since you can take your franchise from the PS3 to it and then back to the PS3 from the Vita.

Understand on the memory cards. You get nothing with the start up pack and it is all separate. I got the 8 gig I think and that was $32! The 16 gig was like $60. I figure I would wait. I haven't done anything but play Madden, which they have improved tremendously. It is a whole lot of fun. I have to really take some time and sit down and figure out what I can do with the Vita though.
You should get one if you can. I saw off slickdeals.com, just before Christmas, they had the Black Ops or Madden package for $200 (off Amazon). That was a flat steal. I never found it again but keep your eye out - that may save you on the card. Luckily I had a $50 gift card I used off my last cell phone package for my family, which helped.
