I can't put this thing down. Every game I've tried is absolutely beautiful on the bright touch screen. I bought the wi-fi version because being portable for me didn't require leaving the house. I can now play games on the (quite large) small screen while the wife watches "real" housewives on the big screen I bought to play games on. Hopefully, the PS Vita will only get better with the promised remote play functionality of the PS4.

I got this used from EZCORP and absolutley love it. It arrived in great condition and came with a free carrying case and charger.

I got playstation plus and downloaded all of the free games it has to offer, including one of my new favorite games "Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward". I also picked up Persona 4: Golden and it's turned out to be my favorite game of this generation!

If you're looking for a good portable gaming experience or are planning to get a PS4, a vita is a must.

Bought this as a gift for my fiance because he has wanted one ever since he first heard about them, and he couldn't be more pleased! The only thing that takes some getting used to is the touch screen on the back! However, not every game uses it so it's not that bad!

I am a late adapter to PS VITA and I am extremely glad I did. I can honestly admit that my best gaming experiences have been in this console. I bought the PS VITA that came with instant collection and a year of PS plus which by the way it's another must have. I havent spent a dime on another game since and yet have so many games to go through. While the game list is no where near the 3ds( which i also own and highly recommend), it has plenty of quality titles and several games that I missed from the psp era. I only owned a psp for monster hunter and basically ignored the entire psp collection. I am now able to have a blast with titles missed and for free thanks to playstation plus.

to sum up buy it, especially if ps4 is in your future.

Game on and game often

The one I bought off the Amazon warehouse was inoperative.. I never got a refund for my screen protector like the CS department promised (twice) that they would.. but after I sent back the bad one...
Bought a new one at walmart, and decided to never use Amazon for used consoles again...

It's a great system.
-Battery is fairly outstanding and lasts multiple days of pretty intense gaming (3+ hours a day)
-game selection is quite good now (gravity rush, disgaea3, persona4 golden, and project diva f are my favorites so far.)
-wifi sharing of files between the vita and my windows pc is a great feature.
-simple to use, and navigate.. even as my first Sony console, it's simply a great device.

Good job.

I actually do play a lot of games on my smartphone (a Nokia Lumia 920), and I'm addicted to games. But mobile games on Vita are so much more substantial than smartphone ones. Of course, they cost more, and not every Vita game gives you a lot of value, but a few titles like Assassin's Creed III, NFS Most Wanted, Uncharted, to name just three popular ones (and the ones I've been playing the last few weeks) remind you that this is a real game console, not a phone doubling for gaming. Phones are fine for babies and ladies, but not for real gamers. :D The Vita feels good in the hands and the buttons are responsive. The touch screen is responsive, too. I do find the OLED screen a tad too dark even at the highest brightness and the speakers a joke, but overall, this hardware is made for real gaming, and so far the games I've played have not disappointed. (The apps are a different matter, but then, I have my beautiful Nokia Lumia 920 for apps and of course game apps designed for babies and wimps.)

I don't even know where to start... the Vita just completely blows me away! I picked one up on Ebay because of the advertised cross-features with the PS4, and now that I've used it for a week I can say that I would not have hesitated to spend the full price on it! The game selection is really good and the graphics/gameplay capable on this device are great! This is truly console-quality mobile gaming!
My only gripe is the memory card prices and the amount of games you can fit on them. I've got one 4GB card which has two games on it and an 8GB card which has 7 (four of which are not-very-big indie/PSX titles [Thomas was Alone, Limbo, Toy Story 2, and an augmented reality game). Luckily though you can get just about every game available (except for the PSX, PSP, and some of the smaller indie games) in physical form which is absolutely no problem for me, especially since at times you can get better deals on them thanks to sites like Amazon.
I definitely recommend this game for all hardcore gamers who like to game on the go!
Some recommended games:
Assassin's Creed III: Liberation
Gravity Rush
Uncharted Golden Abyss
Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified
Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath

I love this PSV, it is a nice large screen so those of us that like to play and aren't 12 can have a good time with it. It is so very easy to use, watch movies on, you name it. LOVE IT!!

i bought this to take advantage of the free vita games on my PS+ subscription, and couldnt be happier, the vita is a great machine with excellent games, Uncharted Golden Abyss, Gravity Rush, Wipeout 2048, ect. (All of those i got for free on Ps+!!) overall very happy with my purchase, my only gripe with it is the battery life, 5 hours is just not enough for me! had to get the Nyko Grips that have a battery included, now i can play for almost 10 hours without recharging.
