That's just America, I think. From what I can tell, Europe (and certainly Japan) has really good Internet.

Incidently I expect the Vita to sell better in Europe and Japan than the US. I don't think Sony understands the US market as well.

there are multiple reasons behind it, and of course access to internet (whether via wi-fi or 3G plan) is going to be an obstacle too, but yeah — IMO the average person is not yet ready to take that step into a fully download-only gaming culture. we walk into a game store/poke around Amazon and eBay and expect to see physical copies of games available for play on our brand new consoles, not to be told that most of the playable games (for now) are only available for download over the internet. we're slowly making the transition (tech-savvy and gamers perhaps quicker than most?), but we're not fully there just yet.

...and it's service like that or lack thereof, that continues to push Best Buy into a worse financial state.

@shingi_70: That's interesting...probably the one thing I can say that Sony is doing right, so far, with the Vita. I would choose hard copy over digital every time when the price is the exact same, but I don't really know how I feel about it when the price is better for digital...

I wonder how they factor retail discounts. I could get hot its on pan for $35 or get it on amazon for $30 plus free shipping withmy prime discount.

I wonder if the games are playable on the ps3.

@sykotek I agree about choosing a hard copy over digital every time if the price is the same. I don't think I'll ever lose my desire to have a physical bookshelf for my books and video games. I'm going to be very torn when something like Littlebigplanet comes out and it's only a 10 dollar savings to download...

I prefer digital books and music. I do however but hardcopies and vinyl for show purposes or if really like the book.

i know that the downloaded games take space on your memory card, but does the physical game take any memory?

@Zephren: I think it would, that's why the memory cards are required by retail games in the first place, to store save data.

@sykotek well thats what i figured, so really its just better to get a digital version of the game. im getting the hard copy of wipeout...and im hoping that monster hunter freedom unite doesnt take too much memory

MHFU is about 1.6GB. The data install is a little bit over 500MB, and it's pretty much required (as I'm sure you know) unless you love loading screens. The save data itself isn't worth mentioning, something like 2MB. So if you plan on having more than one PSP game, you'll need at least a 8GB card. And Vita games, well...

All the stuff that's required to use a Vita (besides the console itself) is going to break my poor wallet ;___;

I have to try it out @_@

Just wish Ratchet and Clank were launch titles (I know one is coming eventually).

Dark Cloud 3 would seal the deal for me.

@sykotek: No I bought my PS3 new

@TendoBoy: I agree with PolkaDotChocobo as much as I hated the fact that PS3 didnt have backwards compatibility they still got me to by one due to the fact that they brought out a new Twisted Metal. Yes if they didnt bring out a new Twisted Metal than yes I wouldnt have bought a PS3 but in the end I did buy one despite the fact that there wasnt backwards compatibility and thats all that Sony cares about is people buying their systems. In the end I was able to look past the non backward compatibility and buy one even though I am not happy that the newer ones dont have that option I still bought it.

@Zephren - Games on the game cards can either use the game card to save or the memory card. This is not something the user decides, it is chosen by the developer at the time of manufacture. Most card based games (I would imagine) will save to the game card, but some (LittleBigPlanet, for example) will need more save space than the game card can offer and will require a memory card to play.

Well a game like LittleBigPlanet obviously needs a memory card for all the DLC and user-created levels.

Decided not to get a Vita at launch. That whole order price is just way too much right now. I'd rather concentrate on finally getting a 3DS and all anticipated games coming this year. Then maybe later in the year, I can consider a Vita, especially when a few bigger games come out (not that I'm dissing the launch line-up). There might even be a limited edition Vita model by that time.
