Oh hell yes. Thank you guys! PlayStation Vita is gonna rock!

krae_man said:

December 22nd, 11:24 am

Thank you for answering my question regarding purchasing additional software with my First Edition Bundle.

I preordered my games from a different retailer then my System. Here’s hoping I get them both Day one:p

playaplus said:

December 22nd, 11:25 am

no resistance burning skies at launch? kinda sad…guess i’ll get uncharted….

TomHoang said:

December 22nd, 11:25 am

That 8GB memory stick is mine, it is cheaper than I expected. I hope to pick up Uncharted and Shinobido at launch :)

Nintendo451 said:

December 22nd, 11:26 am

Looks fantastic! The only real question I have is, what exactly does Launch Window mean? I’m really looking forward to Gravity Rush the most out of everything here, but it just doesn’t really have a solid definition. First month or so? Just wondering, thanks!

    That’s right, the launch window includes titles hitting within about a month of PS Vita’s launch.

YungShep said:

December 22nd, 11:26 am

so the 32gb is likely the best bet for all download essentials? how big are the games??

YungShep said:

December 22nd, 11:28 am

@6 launch window meaning around feb 22-april would be considered a launch window

LightKiosk said:

December 22nd, 11:28 am

I haven’t seen anyone mention whether the system comes with a 2-4GB memory stick in it already, what was the decision behind making the users pay to actually hold stuff on a device they’re already paying a lot of money for?

StECnet said:

December 22nd, 11:29 am

The launch lineup is incredible probably the best of any recent system launches! My only complaint is the price of expanded memory is ridiculous… seriously $100 for a measly 32gb card is absurd!!!???

krae_man said:

December 22nd, 11:29 am

Wait, Ridge Racer is Launch Window? :(

Also LOL $50 MSRP games. $1 iphone games are lowering everyone’s price threshold for portable games? Who cares, bump MSRP up $10!

PatriotEyez27 said:

December 22nd, 11:29 am

Whoa the memory card prices are cheaper than I expected.

Might pick up the starter pack and 32gb later down the road.

action03 said:

December 22nd, 11:29 am

Will the games be cheaper to download on PSN vs. buying the physical game cards? I heard that games like Uncharted: Golden Abyss would be cheaper to download than to buy on cards.

Figboy said:

December 22nd, 11:29 am

I already pre-ordered my Vita at amazon along with Uncharted and LBP, which I didn’t see on the list! Hopefully LBP can make it for launch.

reson8er said:

My Wallet will be very light come 2/22.

-Super StarDust Delta
-UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss
-wipEout 2048
-Lumines Electronic Symphony
-Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen

8 GB Memory Card

Quick Question: What is the appx. average size for a PS Vita Game? I know this number will vary wildly, but lets use Uncharted as a basis, just trying to get an idea of how many games will fit in a memory card.

    Al De Leon said:

    December 22nd, 12:47 pm

    The size of games vary, but PS Vita Game Cards sold at retail have capacities of 2GB and 4GB.

Shahrukahn said:

December 22nd, 11:30 am

I’ve purchased Final Fantasy psone games, Metal Gear Solid psone, and Chrono Trigger. Will the Vita play these day one?

32 GB Memory card, Uncharted, and PS VITA wifi are good for me! Preordered! ^_^

RYNO957 said:

December 22nd, 11:33 am

Looking forward to the Uncharted game, looks amazing

RoyalXIII said:

December 22nd, 11:35 am

I am loving this! I can’t wait for the Vita! Although I do wish Gravity Rush was a launch day title, but yet again it saves me some cash since I gotta get a memory card >.>

Guerra-R said:

December 22nd, 11:36 am

Probably not a day-one buy for me, perhaps a 6th month buy lol. Still wish to see how things will roll before spending such big money onto a handheld. I won’t be an early adopter ever again after the problems with my first Playstation 3.

A little concerned about the pricing on memories and games, too. I’m excited about the platform, it’s potential and the games to come though. Do a good job, Sony.

mockduck said:

December 22nd, 11:38 am

Definitely looking forward to Stardust, Uncharted, and Touch my Katamari! Also, pleased to see the prices on the memory sticks, they are looking pretty good! Probably get the Vita, three games above, 16 gig stick to start with, maybe the case too.

ManaKnight said:

December 22nd, 11:38 am

I plan to buy 1/3rd the first party games, along with every SCEA game at launch. Cannot wait. :D

Xeref said:

December 22nd, 11:40 am

You guys can’t give specific pricing on the games? I want to know how much I’ll be spending at launch. Also, what does launch window mean? And by that I mean, from when to when is the launch window?

Mobstylez said:

December 22nd, 11:40 am

Nice pricing on the Starter Kit. Does it include 2 packs of Protective Film?

eaglefan129 said:

December 22nd, 11:42 am

LittleBigPlanet not a launch title? :( That’s not on the list?

eaglefan129 said:

December 22nd, 11:43 am

One quick question does the Vita come with a usb cable I just want to make sure,

VisionaryLight said:

December 22nd, 11:44 am

I’m not buying. The price of Sony’s proprietary memory is price gouging. $60 for 16GB seriously? $300 for the system and memory card and still haven’t bought a game.

GouthDark said:

December 22nd, 11:46 am

A 32GB SD card is about $30. Why should I pay more than three times that price for your proprietary format?

zombie9 said:

December 22nd, 11:46 am

Why is there no cable to hook it up to your HDTV. (PSP can) also Memory Card prices are too High.

butcherknife said:

December 22nd, 11:46 am

When will the first FPS be released? I cannot wait to play an FPS with the dual sticks.

eaglefan129 said:

December 22nd, 11:47 am

Since I already pre-ordered the 32 gb card I assuming that will be corrected? (on gamestop)

allwasgood said:

December 22nd, 11:47 am

Please make an announcement regarding PSOne classics!

Capshot18 said:

December 22nd, 11:48 am

Can you say how soon LIttleBIGPlanet will be coming out? I am really looking forward to that, and just want to know how long I’ll have to wait.

jgrizzle358 said:

December 22nd, 11:48 am

I like the launch titles… but… memory cards are too expensive. I will wait for the price drop.

JDSSLP said:

December 22nd, 11:49 am

Thanks for all the great information! Two questions:

First, how long is the launch window?

Second, at least a few of the third party publishers and developers here had launch releases on the 3DS that did not meet gamers’ expectations from a software and features standpoint. Will we be able to get more in-depth looks at the third party Vita games before they are released?

Kchow23 said:

December 22nd, 11:50 am

Great news since now I can start thinking about what accessories to buy with my PS Vita, but the First Edition Bundle is starting to look like less of a great deal. Seeing how the Starter kit comes with a solution to all your accessories needs why did you guys decide not to include it with the First Edition bundle and if I were to get it then I would have two 4GB memory cards.

cooldude7135 said:

December 22nd, 11:50 am

What about europe?

Butters360 said:

December 22nd, 11:52 am

Everything is so reasonably priced :) Kudos Sony.

My launch day list:

PlayStation Vita Wifi
32GB Memory Card
UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss.
wipEout 2048
Super StarDust Delta
Gravity Rush (When it releases.)

Hoping that a Battlefield game releases as well. Ruin is also mine when they announce a release date.

Kchow23 said:

December 22nd, 11:52 am

P.S Where is Soundshapes?

WorcesterRaider said:

December 22nd, 11:53 am

I am so excited for this product to come out. I am also pleasantly surprised by the cost of the memory sticks. If you don’t have a lot of disposable income then spend the $20.00 for 4 GB and put a couple of games on the Vita instead of 20.

Yes the memory cards cost more, but I am sure that there was some R&D that went into them to limit piracy (which was a huge issue with the PSP). I am glad that they made the Vita more secure and are able to put out trophies.

Yes, things cost money, Sony isn’t a non-profit company. The market will let them know if it is too much.

Ice546 said:

December 22nd, 11:53 am

Meh.. sadly, nothing in the launch line up looks appealing to me.. Except for maybe Uncharted.

SilenceKilla175 said:

December 22nd, 11:53 am

I would like to play some NBA! or MGS!

nYcFrEeWiLL82 said:

December 22nd, 11:54 am

I got just about 500 saved just for 2/15/2012…cant wait to play Lil Deviants, Uncharted :GA and Revenge of Zen..its bin awhile i play a ninja game. Also i was going to ask ..will we be able to play PS3 PSN GAMES as well?..like Rocket Birds and Pac Man or Joe Danger or NBA JAM ON FIRE EDITION! IF so that would be AMAZING! if not well then i can always keep my fingers crossed until there is an UPDATE for this to be possible :p

David2Crazy said:

December 22nd, 11:55 am

Dammit, where is Sound Shapes?!

krae_man said:

December 22nd, 11:55 am

So glad I preordered Uncharted for $26 before you bumped MSRP up to $49.99.

CBas92 said:

December 22nd, 11:55 am

Whats the difference between the Carrying Case and the Travel Pouch?

JoeTheBeast16 said:

December 22nd, 11:56 am

to all of the people complaining about the memory cards and comparing them to sd cards, they’re smaller then sd cards.. they’re alot closer in size to the Micro-SD cards, and seeing how i just spent $40 on a 16 gb MicroSD card not too long ago, i think they’re price for a new proprietary card is pretty good. Go to walmart.com and search 32 gb MicroSD Class 10
$101.
So i truly don’t see how $99 for a 32 gb card to store all of your games, music, and movies on is such a big deal.
Especially since the majority of the people that are complaining, will be filling their cards up with pirated music and movies anyway.
If you all didn’t participate in that form of theft, then proprietary memory cards wouldn’t have been necessary.

ok im getting the first edition bundle with Uncharted Golden Abyss , ModNation Racers Road Trip , Escape Plan , Wipeout 2048 .

launch window titles im getting Unit 13 and Gravity Rush .

i will wait for a good deal on a 32 gb memory card and why arent Motorstorm RC , Ruin , Resistance Burning Skies and Litlte Big Planet part of the launch window titles? when are we gonna see more about Killzone ?

Sonicfan11589 said:

December 22nd, 11:59 am

Can u release a Q and A blog or a FAQ blog with such questions such as:
-How to easily transfer PSN games, save data, etc, from PSP systems to PS Vita
-What PSP games will be like played on PS Vita and if any are upgraded to Vita such as upscaled graphics.
-If PS1 classics will make use of right analog stick like they did on PS1 and PS2 systems.
-If PS2 classics will be playable on Vita at some point in the future.

ONE THING I DEFINITELY LOOK FORWARD TO IS PLAYING THE 3RD BIRTHDAY ON VITA SINCE IT FEELS SO CRAMPED PLAYING ON PSP GO.

Also some stores are selling some vita games for $30 rather than $40 on such games such as Modnation Racers: Road Trip, will this be the same or cheaper on PSN?
