    For those of you planning to buy it. When do you plan to buy it launch or down the road and why? And for the people currently considering not buying one do you think your mind will be changed?

    Not interested at all. I'm sort of a picky gamer, and the Vita's (and PSP's) offerings don't interest me.

    I'll be buying it, not at launch. Hopefully in March or at the latest, April.

    I'm extremely interested in the Vita, mostly because of the PSP and how that turned out.

    Almost as interested as going out to watch The Vow today. I have got bored of just playing games years ago, the only interest I have in gaming today is using memory editors and playing retro games.

    I might buy one a few years after its launch. By then, it should have
    a library of games that I might be interested in, like the PSP.

    To the point where it seems creepy and semi-erotic. Sony, my body is ready. My wallet isn't though, so my body will have to wait.

    Right now, not really interested. There's no appeal to it for me. Only got a 3DS because of Zelda and the inevitable pokemon game. I rarely touch upon other games unless they are really good.

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    I'm temporarily trading in my Nintendo fanboy card for this system. Frothing has begun in earnest.


    Was this an early bird bundle or did they jump the gun with the Wifi model? What retailer?

    May I suggest adding a poll?

    () I already have a Vita!
    () I've got to get one as soon as possible!
    () I'll probably get one before too long.
    () Maybe I'll get one eventually
    () It doesn't interest me very much.
    () There is no way I'll ever spend money on a Vita.

    As much as I love sinking money into handhelds, the Vita doesn't have enough games I like for a purchase right now. That's all it is, same with the 3DS.

    The only games that have interested me thusfar are apparently Japan-only games. And I'm not going to dare getting a Japan PSV if its region locked.

    Same with me, though I'm tempted to pick it up next week at launch because it'll be on a lower firmware, waiting
    a month or so may help with games and such. I'd be more tempted to pick up an 8GB/16GB memory-card though
    since the PSN offerings seem better than the launch-titles to me at the moment.

    I'm very interested in the Vita. I already got mine with a bunch of games.

    I'll be interested once they release a game for it that I'm interested in. That's how it works with me. I swear... most of the systems I own I only bought because of Kingdom Hearts... haha I always end up finding other good games for those systems though.
