Collective Thoughts: Will you buy a PS Vita at launch?

Early adopters of technology are typically taught harsh lessons, especially when it comes to price. Companies like Apple, and more recently Nintendo (with their unusually quick but necessary 3DS price drop) have made the practice of early adoption even tougher to swallow. With tomorrow’s official North American launch of the PS Vita — and with its lackluster Japanese sales top of mind — we wanted to know if our readers plan to pick one up. What we learned is that most of you have been trained by technology companies to patiently wait for a price drop. We also sensed a lot of “wait and see” attitudes and a disinterest in the launch games.

Yep. Already preordered and picking up tomorrow.

cant say it will be at launch but tax return should be here in 2 weeks. Does that still count for something?

Elimin82103d ago

Already did.. Before launch.. Try one week before... And enjoying the Tihs out of it!

dark-hollow2103d ago

No money, no honey ):
Hopefully I can get it next month.

ThanatosDMC2103d ago

Yup, bought two Vitas (wifi), two 32gb, and two Army Corps of Hell games on newegg. Love preferred account. Bought 6 more from Target.

darthv722103d ago

you one lucky @#&%**$&%^#

I am seriously jealous.

ThanatosDMC2103d ago

It'll take me a while to pay it back but a newegg preferred account has a 12 month no interest deal. The 6 games I bought from target ended up on my debit though. It took forever to convince the guy to sell me Ninja Gaiden since he said he's not suppose to sell it before the 22nd. Glad there was buy 2 get 1 deal.

Redesign or price-drop ala 3DS, whatever that comes first, price drop will come first I know, but a redesign should be better, so I don't know yet...

BattleAxe2103d ago (Edited 2103d ago )

I think I might wait for the next model also. HDMI OUT is a feature I'd like to see in the next one., I'd also like to see them make the touch pad on the back a bit smaller(1/2" smaller each side) and the finger grips a bit bigger. I am quite interested in Uncharted: Golden Abyss though, and I'm also interested to see more on the Call of Duty game in production for the VITA.

First Edition Bundle here too and looking at NEAR its 46 people playing in a 3 mile radius......I think the PSV will do great

fluffydelusions2103d ago (Edited 2103d ago )

I actually just switched my preorder from wifi -> 3g because you get a free 8gb card and stardust + free month of data which is probably all I'll ever use anyway. BTW, does near require 3G?

TheGamingArt2103d ago

No Near doesn't require 3G

morganfell2103d ago

Same here. Picked up the First Edition bundle. These games look insane. The videos we have been shown really do not do them any justice.

rockbottom30762103d ago

same here. I am really impressed already how many are out around me. The number on Tuesday was about 8 since than its grown to about 68. I am not in a area that I thought would support those numbers suit is definitely a great start IMO.

AceofStaves2103d ago

Me, too. The bundle was too great a deal to pass up.

Summons752103d ago

Picking mine up first thing tomorrow, I'll have just enough time to get it all set up charged and ready to bring to work for a near 12 hour shift =p

tarbis2103d ago

Working 12 hour shift here too. And screw work. Playing PSV is more important. XD

Tristanh822103d ago
