    Well somehow I lost pretty much interest on the Vita at launch because of the new PS3 slim my dad ordered (mostly for BD movies on my new TV) and some other stuff like money.

    But the thing is, I love monster hunter. However I just reek to get a Wii for Tri. I got a PSP at launch then but it spoiled about a year ago when my bro spilled juice on it. Importing Portable 3rd HD is sooooo expensive. Hence I feel like getting another PSP for all my Monster Hunter love (also in case Tri G doesn't get localized). My friends all play Monster Hunter Freedom Unite on it and I will have no problems with ad-hoc.

    Opinions? Do you think I should go for it? Well, I sold off my UMDs after my PSP broke... so I'll need to repurchase. Plus PSPs are quite cheap now.

    I heard that hacking gets rid of online.

    And I want to buy content digitally so that when I eventually get the Vita I can play on it as well. ;)

    PS Vita can only play psp games up on PSN, and fortunately, I see that Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is up on PSN. Since you've already sold your UMD, getting it off of PSN might be a better option, since psp games played on the Vita gets upscalled to the Vita's screen (don't know if the second analog nub will be usable though). Also, if you get a Vita, you'll be able to play Vita games. If you're already considering the Vita, I don't know if getting a psp as well is a smart thing to do. You know, the memory stick used is different, so you'll have to get one for psp and one for Vita if you decide to get both. That's quite a lot of budget.

    Just in case you're curious: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_downloadable_PSP_games

    Won't Sony disable PSN or whatever?

    Sorry, didn't hack my old PSP so I'm pretty much a noobie. :P

    EDIT: Just checked Portable 3rd in Japan digital download costs 2,990 Yen. Itching to get one.

    Nah. I never buy used consoles ever since I got cheated once.

    The main reason why I want a 3000 instead of a Go is because of the wider screen :P

    I did consider the Vita, but I lost interest in it for now because the launch games don't appeal to me. I might pick one up maybe a year later when more Vita games are available and then play my PSN purchases there. Knowing Sony, I'll buy all Vita content digitally as well.

    Oh and thanks for the link :P

    Really? Well, what good stuff do you get by hacking (besides emulation)? :P

    Today is a public holiday here, so I'll call up my shop tomorrow for this shitz. :lol:

    Emulation
    Plugins (Custom XMB, Video output to PC and a million other useful features)
    Homebrew (some nice sounding ones)
    Underclocking (Saves battery while listening to music)
    Overclocking (only used for Homebrew/emus really)
    Make your own software for it...
    etc.....

    Is 4GB memory enough for a few digital downloads?

    Maybe but you want to download off JPN PSN right?
    It'll be a pain swapping accounts if you want to buy off the other PSNs.

    Easier to just download the game, Capcom doesn't need your money

    And that Wikipedia link doesn't have everything, just download MediaGo and look for yourself.

    That'd be extreme circumstances....even large games are seldom over about 1.2GB's so even with two there's still plenty of room for emulators, smaller PSP games, Mini's, PSX games, PDF's etc...

    I just remembered something: Sony has Asia headquarters, and does NOT follow western release dates unlike Nintendo. Hence PSV will launch earlier here.

    Well... One thing for sure is that it will definitely retail for more than $300. The PSP-3006 at Sony SGs site is $299, still. Even with the PS Vita banner. I dunno... I would love upscaled HD Monster Hunter but it's expected to be much more expensive. And with those memory addons...

    Confused... :(

    Yes, but definitely, DEFINITELY second-hand. And I personally would hack it straight away too. Else there isn't enough incentive IMHO.
