Hi there. I might get a Vita this week. Some other folks are thinking about it too. I don't have a real working knowledge of this thing and I had some questions. They've probably all been answered but I'm making this thread for quick reference anyway.
1. Memory cards - Does *everything* need to save to a proprietary memory card or just game installs and saves? Can I save music, pictures, etc to something else? Not sure if there's even another slot. If I had Plus I guess I could keep saving to the cloud as long as I was connected to WiFi (Not getting 3G model).
2. Camera - can I snap pictures and take short videos? Not looking for professional grade or anything, just taking a picture of my dog if he's being interesting. I assume if you can, there's no flash.
3. Downloading things - I thought I heard it was faster to download Vita stuff to your PS3 and then transfer it over - is that true?
4. Accessories - Is a screen protecter essential? I'm also thinking about a grip thing to snap it into. Some of the bigger ones have extra battery power. I don't plan on taking it out of the house often. Any recommendations would be great.
5. Remote play - anyone have a list of games that currently take advantage of this feature?
EDIT - I've got a Vita now. Sweet deal on the AssLib bundle for $180, Amazon.
