    Sweet, a few days before my bro's birthday.

    Hopefully Sony here will fix an affordable price for it.

    Alright, I'm marking it down. Not too bad a date for the launch; it would have been nice if it was closer to Christmas, but that's kind of a moot point now.

    My only problem is how this conflicts with the shitload of amazing games I'm buying in the time period of November to March. Working at a cafe isn't enough! >_>

    If you're referring to me (lol)

    Sony hasn't marked a fixed price yet.

    But my guess would be S$350+ since the PSP was around that price at launch.

    I'm going to wait for a Limited Edition Vita, and get that! Lets hope the wait isn't too long for something like say... Miku PSV.

    Region Free is great.

    Lucky you. At first here they had the 3DS at almost 500, so I can expect that prize. But in this case we can actually import!

    To preorder or to wait? Hmm...
    I think I'll wait for a Kingdom Hearts game (or some other must-have series) to be announced before I buy.

    Just like I preordered the 3DS when I heard about Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney.

    I feel like waiting just to see if there are more colors, the ones at Tokyo Game Show (I think) were nice. Or bundles. But not bad knowing when it's out.

    Isn't the PSV already confirmed for quite some time to release on December 17th in Asia?

    Anyway, only 2 months waiting time between the 2, very nice IMHO. Can't wait to get my hands on one!

    Probably waiting for a bundle, like ojsinnerz said since it's too close to FFXIII-2 EU release and I have no idea how much the special edition will cost.

    But that all depends how the next few months turn out for me.
