@MuchoMochi: I think you know already and I think it is just a typo but I want to confirm that Vita does not use SD cards. Vita use an Vita memory card.

If you know this already then I apologies.

I was under the impression that the Vita memory card was essentially just a Sony made micro SD card, and that it was the only memory card that the Vita worked with. Even I use the wrong name for it it's essentially the same as a micro SD card in my mind, just a pretty unfair way to make money off the consumer.

I agreed and they should of at least make it support an SD card for it without "brand" name. And I apologized for misunderstanding.

No worries man, should have used the right name haha. I think they should have allowed the use of micro SD cards, the reasons for their name brand memory cards were pretty lame excuses. once they are all 10-15 dollars cheaper for each size respectively I think it'll be a worthy purchase.

On the subject of the 1000, I'm pretty sure Sony hasn't said if it will be discontinued or not in NA.

Actually the reason is because of the Rampant Piracy on the PSP. With a propriatary memory card, it'll be harder for people to hack the Vita.

Still kind of a lame excuse when their 32 GB memory card is 60 dollars more than a 32 GB micro SD card. Why such a large price gap?

Where did you hear this? That's really disappointing if it is true.

Is the original Vita still being sold in Japan? I think it has been completely replaced by the slim

They confirmed that the slim is replacing the original Vita in the UK but it's unclear about Japan and North America.

I thought OLED was an great technology and will help improved the battery life. Why are they discarding OLED? Is it still a lot expensive to make?

Cost is probably the main reason. Sony is saying that LCDs are now just as good as OLEDs but some people are saying otherwise:

I'll reserve final judgment until I try the slim Vita in person.

Looks like I'm going to have to buy it sooner than I thought, even though it's not clear if they'll replace in North America, I want to be sure I get the version I want. Thanks for the heads up man.

The Vita can still be hacked, is just that with the PS Store and PS Plus and online gaming all of which don't work if you have anything but the official firmware there is not enough incentive for people to go for it....... Piracy is not the reason is just an excuse...... the reason is that they are selling the console at a loss and trying to make it back with the propietary memory cards but its a bad strategy...... lot of people have been holding on buying a Vita because they refuse on principle to pay $80.00 for a 32 GB memory card

Unfortunately I'm one of those people. I was actually considering it this christmas along with the 3DS XL. If the PS Vita had a price drop, or if the memory cards did then I would have jumped on it. at this point the PS3 is cheaper than the Vita when you take in account the memory card price.

I don't know about the US but in the UK various OLED Vita bundles with games and a memory card (8 or 16GB depending on the bundle) have been very competitively priced if you shop around online. Standalone memory cards are expensive, but in terms of initial outlay I reckon those bundles were very good value, particularly compared to the 3DSXL. It's just a shame that the 2000 has been priced so highly, but hopefully competitive retail in the UK will drive it down.

All apparently confirmed for Western release this year for Vita.

Also, Danganronpa, which just arrived, and Monster Monpiece, which should be coming this year.

Plus, whatever else brings the number up to 100.

No games my butt. Looks like the Vita might have a pretty good year.

Bundling Borderlands 2 with the new slim Vita seems like a good idea, too.

I probably be getting Toukiden: Ages of Demon soon since I like the demo. I don't know why I didn't like playing Monster Hunter 3 on Wii and I still don't like the demo for 3DS. I going try the Wii U demo to see for sure if I like it.

Umm… Care to have some gravy?

I agree with you, I want a new Dissidia so bad. I bought Duodecim when it was on sale (I haven't played this one yet) but the original one is so gooooood!

Hmm. TxK us getting great reviews but I've never loved that genre. I think I might wait for a sale. Between this and Olli Olli, Vita is off to a great start this year.

Yeah, the Vita memory cards are WAAY overpriced. I'd be more willing to grab more downloadable games on Vita if the cards weren't priced so high. No idea why they haven't cut them to normal prices.
