With the price and release date set, we’ll have many more inside looks for you. We’ll be updating you on new game launches and providing you with deeper looks at all things Vita over the next couple of weeks and months. Be sure to check back on the PlayStation.Blog for more information soon.

I have few questions:

i have many sony products.i leave in india could you give me some hint that when ps vita will launch in india.

i think 250 $ is an fare in india it costs much but still many people are playing.
many gamers are there in india and they are diying to buy ps vita.only issue is that 250$ + games cost is ok but when it goes to memory card than things change many ppl are having 2nd thought this is very costly for them.
i think price of memory card is little high at least sony should low down there price it will attract more a days memory card are very cheap but this is very please look in this.

could you please let us know what is the approx price of ps vita battery pack.

please let me know the release date in india approx.

This is truly Epic, as I would say Trepic.

Is there going to be any CoD Videos any time soon? and
The Loading time on the PSV is it going to be slow or fast?

i want one soooo bad! this sucks, cause i leave for deployment just a few weeks after it launches and if i get one, id either have to get it launch day and leave it behind, get it launch day and take it with me on the ship, or wait until i get back from deployment. oh, decisions, decisions

@Creeper43 From what I understand there will be no installed games. The closest think that the system will have is something called Near and I am not 100% sure as to what that particular app does. I’m sorry about the way I responded to the previous question but after angering it before and going to trouble of siting I kind of felt slighted.

When it comes to game that have cross platform transfers…as in from PSV to PS3 how likely is it that the PS3 version will come with a voucher to download the PSV version or will people have to buy two versions of the same game everytime?

Apollo4x said:

October 24th, 11:38 am

I know I am starting to sound like I a Vita nerd but @ztstyle that is a good question and the last time I saw the question asked it seemed like the answer was it is up to the developer of the game. The me personally I think that Sony should say NO and put a standard down that says that if there is cross chat at least let the be able to DL the game for the VITA. That way we can buy the PS3 copy and just DL the VITA copy and they aren’t out the material for Vita copy. Now the guy making Ruin are cool and said both would be sold together in one pack, YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!

What about UMD registration? It would make my life and several other lives so much easier if we could register our UMDs and download them for free off the PSN. This would make them worth something to the Vita and in case our UMDs break. (If the ring acting as its lock somehow loosens, the UMD breaks completely, this is apparently a common problem for UMDs)

My friend, Logan:
“If only they’d do something like that. Digital copies of your games in case something unfortunate happens to your copy.”
“I’d even pay a couple extra dollars for a feature like that. They should do it.”

Off-topic, 3G > Wifi, definitely pay the extra 50$ for 3G.

Apollo4x said:

I keep popping on hoping my question will be answered instead I see questions i asked in the past. When I asked about the out the whole UMD thing the answer I got was that it it is thing some that they are looking into. But, really if you go online and look around you will notice that not every game is out there meaning they don’t own the right to all the game and that is the real problem for some of the games. My suggestion, like you were going to have to do any way hold onto those games hope nothing happens to them because unless Sony get’s the digital rights there is no way to get them again.

We need a Playstation Blog app for PSVita. At least. Since we seem to not be getting an iOS app anytime soon, like EU has had for a long time now.

no multi media capability = no purchase from me – i will stick to my psp 1000 for its impressive Signal to Noise Ratio…even though its a bit on the large side for an MP3 player im an audiophile so yea…i really hate how they do not address the fact that the original psp actually does more than the vita as far as multi media goes…the only thing vita does…at all…is games…please correct me if i am wrong…but the very little information i can find on it says it does nothing but games at all…and movies i guess if you get them off the psn…id much rather keep my psp 1000 where i can upload pictures, movies, music, and whatever other kind of data i choose to the card and travel with it wherever i choose..but thats just me i suppose :)

I really have high hopes for the Vita. My only complaint is how memory cards are being handled. :/

Apollo4x said:

@Wrist if you mean official contentment that you can download from them then yes if not then probably not. In fact I’m not sure but I think you use had to not patch your system and “work around it” to do what you are talk about. and that is and is exactly why Sony has done some of when it has done for this system people “working around” security.”
