To get down to it, I have researched the system heavily before making this purchase, so I will explain a few things. First of all, you will hear that the OLED screen has some black markings to it around the edge in the dark. In my case, this was in fact true, however, it is only noticeable in complete darkness and even then very lightly. The beautiful screen more than makes up for this, as the LCD screen is slightly brighter and less attractive, visual wise. Also, it works surprisingly well as a touch screen, and there are a ton of free downloadable games available that take advantage of it. The graphics of the games are surprisingly good as well.
I recommend getting the Playstation Protective Film to prevent the screen from scratching, and there's a special backing you can buy (the name escapes me at the moment) where you snap the Vita into it and it transforms the L and R buttons into triggers, like that of a controller, making it more comfortable in your hands.
I gave this unit 4 stars for one major reason... the memory cards. I haven't had to buy one yet (thank God) but when I do I'm not going to be too happy. We have downloaded maybe 5 or 6 games (free) and the 8gigs seem to hold more than the packaging said it would. I don't see myself downloading many major games bit plan on buying the game cartridges so maybe that will prolong this expense. But, I think this was a terrible way for PS to keep making money on its customers by forcing these high priced memory cards.
The shipment arrived quickly before Christmas and in good condition. I bought this last minute and Amazon delivered as always. If you are considering this unit, definately go ahead and get it.
I like the interface and OS. Things like downloads and messages are in one list and letting things download and install automatically works great. Everything is linked logically so that in different parts of the OS as well as inside the games, clicking on games or messages or installs or whatever will usually lead you exactly where you want it to go. This means much less navigating around to get stuff done in the OS compared to the PS3 for example.
I am getting quickly used to the analogue sticks and overall ergonomics. I end up holding it differently depending on the game or application so far. A bit on the heavier side if you hold it in one hand to do touch with the other. It really isn't much of a problem especially since it seemed to depend upon exactly how I held it so I'll probably get better at it.
There are good shortcuts to do important settings and functions and everything really seems well designed so far.
Memory Card cost and speed of that expensive storage are the low points. Put those two together and it feels kind of insulting. That was in fact the one reason I didn't get one until now. I found out how slow the cards were and still they were 2x as expensive as faster standard cards. The prices have gone down a bit but really I want faster speed.
So, overall it is exceeding my expectations other than the storage speed and cost which are exactly as expected.
