    Is it just me or did they drop the price of the memory cards?

    @3 This is the first they’ve announced the price. The prices before were either price gouging or guesses.

    Still 100 fucking dollars for a memory card, jesus…just think about that for a minute. That is some insane shit right there. Now i have to admit, i don’t know how much memory cards costs these days for handhelds. But 100? I’m going with 4GB, but i’m afraid its not gonna be enough.

    Gravity Rush PSN only in europe. No sign of Escape Plan for europe, and Uncharted costing 50 euros… europe. Kinda sad.

    WOW. That is one CRAZY line-up. The biggest batch of launch games I’ve EVER Seen and yet there isn’t a single mega hit / system-seller. Don’t get me wrong. A lot of those games look great and will probably ending getting decent scores but none of them is an “it” title that sells a system.
    Same thing happened with 3DS until they released Mario Kart 7. Hopefully Vita does better because Sony does actually deserve it after preparing a decent launch like this.

    @8 Uncharted is there…

    some titles are interesting but i´m with you _Red. not a true megahit. i love wipeout and uncharted could be considered a mega hit too. but i´m not sure if that´s enough for me. those games seem to be more like little brothers of ps3 games. i would have liked something fresh, something that makes me WOW!
    i am interested in a handheld gaming device and i loved my launch psp (but it got old pretty fast)…
    for me it doesn´t seem like there is a device right now i truly want to have. i´m not a fan of touch screen phone/pad gaming, the 3ds is nice but there just aren´t many games i am interested in. the vita looks a little wishy washy to me atm.
