For those concerned about what exactly they might be getting: I received a brand new North America PCH-2000 on 3.55 firmware, exactly as described in the listing. So far everything is working perfectly.
The screen is amazing - large and clear (I did not see the original one with the OLED so cannot compare)
The button placement and sizes are perfect for a handheld, it fits well in your hands, although I would recommend the Comfort Grip accessories if you were planning on playing for a long time in one setting (my thumbs get a little sore without one)
Both the front and back touch screens are responsive and crisp
Sound is not out of this world, but definitely on par.
My only complaint about this is the Wifi - it does lose connection every so often even though it will show Full bars and 90% connectivity and I can be right next to my router. My 3DS never had this problem or any of my other wireless devices. It happens intermittently, but that's too often if you play online a lot (I do not).
OK - one other complaint - the Proprietary memory card nonsense - Sony decided to go this route like the PSP, unfortunately - there are no adapters that I have found that allow you to use regular micro SD cards in this like the PSP had (eventually).
Speaking of memory cards - don't forget one - I would suggest at least a 16GB one (about $30-35) to be safe - unless you like to download a lot and keep in on there - then go the 32GB route.
Runs my PSOne classics from the PSN flawlessly and I actually prefer to play them on this than my PS3 (actually why I bought it).
The game sizes (physical size) are perfect for portability.
The games look amazing on this screen and no need to fire up the big boy TV or shut everything down when done - just hit the power button and put in standby, pickup where you left off in an instant.
I would definitely recommend the Vita Vault Case if you are into protection/storage - both Best Buy and Amazon sell it for around $20, Gamestop for about $25. I think even Target carries it in certain places.
Screen protector would be a good investment too to protect that gorgeous screen
Trigger comfort grips are a plus too.
If you ever had a PSP and wanted to upgrade or are looking for a handheld that can play retro games, but also the current genre, this is the route to go.
Battery life rocks - very important nowadays.
Would definitely recommend
Many of the vita games are old 2013 - 2015 era with very few games from 16 or 17. Mainstream Sony games aren't anywhere and many of your favorite ps games are removed randomly from the marketplace over time. Now don't get me wrong, I'll enjoy it for what it is but the marketplace needs to be stocked back up again asap which probably won't happen.
Now the handful of games that are on the marketplace are pretty decent. I bought GTA and Dragonball Z Battle which are both fantastic, but many games I was hoping for aren't anywhere to be found, psp bleach, Naruto.
For the really good points, your friends list is connected to the ps4. Your friends can see what your playing and you can see what they are up to. The party chat system is absolutely jaw dropping with the ability to flawlessly join ps4 voice party chat and talk with the vita's built in microphone. You can pop in and out at anytime to chat. Now for the games that I have it based on preference. I'm loving Gta and the ones that I bough off the marketplace. The flashsales allowed me to buy some of them for really cheap like One Piece for 5 dollars which is probably one of the most beautiful games I have seen maybe on a console in general. There are some upcoming release like Digimon coming out in late 2017 but nothing really to write home about, but we can still be hopeful. Sadly back to the final part of my review.
Now my final point is that, this thing is expensive. Your paying 200 for just the base console without the memory card. An average memory card cost 40-80 bucks... thats almost 300 bucks that you could have spent on a new ps4. Then of course the games themselves cost money. Now I'll admit, this thing was definetly over priced and hurt my soul a bit with it's online marketplace, but my hopes for the future and that I don't play consoles and not a Nintendo fan will keep me playing this for a long time.
