Sony said there will be no Vita price drops, and at the same time I think there might be, because the Vita is the same price as the PS3.

So? The 3DS is more than a Wii, and the iPod Touch is the same price as an Xbox 360.

The Vita is in the same price range as the iPod Touch, the main product it's competing with.

Oh, I apologise. I should've mentioned I meant the £40+ added on to the 3G model. Now, that is undeniably unreasonable.

The Vita's main competer is the IPod Touch? Why not the 3DS? I don't get it....

And Apple charges an extra $100 for the iPad with 3G. I understand that the Vita and iPad appeal to different demographics, but gaming wise, the Vita is a better value. The only thing holding the Vita back is the price of the memory cards.

Could we please stop comparing the Vita to Apple products? £40 for a useless feature on a gaming handheld is different to more money for 3G on a tablet computer. It's different.

3G isn't useless. It allows you to play online over a 3G cellular network, making it much more convenient than normal Wi-Fi. With 3G, you can play online anywhere you want. With Wi-Fi, you usually have to be within range of a wireless router or hotspot.

Well, the 3DS' main competitor is iOS (iPod, iPad, iPhone), so that means the Vita is competing with both iOS and 3DS.

Why do people consider these "competition" when they're filling different niches? The only real competition to the iOS are similar devices like smartphones and tablets

You only get a 2GB plan and trust me when i say that playing even a little will kill that fast. That's why i;m happy with my unlimted plan on tmobile.

@TokyoRed My prediction is that Vita sales won't really surge until Christmas 2013. That's around the time we'll see the games that'll really push Vita's hardware and send some systems across cash registers.

@shingi I've never even hit 1GB of memory used on my iPhone with AT&T. Their dealers will tell you up front when signing a contract with them, download on WiFi and game on 3G. But even though I'll be getting the 3G Vita, I'll never actually sign up for the service, as I wont need it.

As for the whole taking my comment on true gamers completely out of context and off into left field; just as others have previously stated before me - of which I appreciate - it's nothing more than another way to say traditional, or core gamers. To explain it further in extremely simple terms: those who play games as a regular pastime. ;)

@tendoboy - Yeah, except all the things 3G allows you to do on the Vita can be more efficiently done on a phone with 3G, which is more befitting. You can't even go online multiplayer with 3G. It's absolutely redundant.

And there's no unlimited plan, from what I've heard so far. It's a 2GB allowance. The feature with tire rapidly.

Aren't some PSP games getting dual-analog support? I think Resistance: Retribution one of them. What are some others?

I just saw on Google News that the PS Vita will play SEGA Genesis games and also take a look at the following link:

For those excited about the Vita's Hot Shots Golf take a look at this:

I'm really getting more and more excited about Gravity Rush as I continue to read all the news that is trickling out about it.
