    Just post if you have preordered or even already paid in full a PS Vita and which version and what game launch or otherwise you want for it.

    Myself I did both at Gamestop last Wednesday. 3G + WiFi

    No launch game right now at the moment, waiting for the February miracle game that will be released in Japan.

    Just a quick question:

    Why the 3G?

    I had the spare cash from Ebaying off my used import games I don't play now due to lack of space, anyway most of the preorders at Gamestop were for the 3G + Wifi version according to the employees that were there.

    It hasn't been announced yet but judging from AT&T $20-$50 a month, I can't see it being under $20 or over $50, also I'm not going to use the 3G until the download max is increased to a level I can download a decent game.

    from what i have been reading

    the 3g version is the preferred version. see this
    also
    the 3g version, also has GPS
    the wifi will NOT have GPS (but should have something like it using wifi)

    so why the a full Featured version

    It seems the 32GB memory stick is a preferred option, I better get that sometime since everything else hardware is finalized now, probably after Christmas, I end up with a few hundred in spending money anyway.

    I don't have the money for it at the moment so I may just wait until March and get it as a birthday gift. It'll have a month for things to be sorted out and, if by some divine intervention, it somehow sucks, I won't be committed to it.

    I may check out the wifi only version some time next year, likely around summertime. I can't justify paying for a 3G plan that would merely give me access to location/GPS services I will never use, especially with AT&T. To each his own though.

    I may get the 3g version or wait a year. LTE is around the corner and AT&T is the worst non-prepaid network in the country

    I'm waiting, won't pre-order it until I at least have a hands-on with it.

    I pre-ordered it, but now I'm thinking of cancelling my pre-order until a super special limited edition one comes out, so I can look like a hipster fag.

    Might preorder one in December after Christmas. I just checked my work calendar and it looks like there's a lot to do that month. So hopefully I'll scrape up some cash to buy one. Or I'll see what Christmas brings in terms of checking stuff off my "to-get" list and base my purchase around that. As much as I want one, there's a few more pressing purchases (Magic cards mainly).

    Magic cards > a portable? :blink:
    The 3g and/or 32gb(worse with only one choice) is not worth it over using that money to buy games
    for the thing.

    Also gps... seriously? Fine without that.


    So, I just buy a game and get one later... oh wait... :tpi: :P (Not serious)

    You underestimate my addiction to Magic.

    And I don't want the 3G, I'll agree with you there. I seriously hope the Canada bundle comes to the US, if not I'll just be preordering a standard WiFi console.

    I'm not really inclined to buy either. I'll probably go for 3DS a lot more due to liking Nintendo published games more than Sony ones. Even Nintendo's so called "casual" line can produce some great titles though lately they haven't.

    After Mario Galaxy 1 & 2 3D Land seems like a major come down and redundant in ideas. I'm sure its a very good game but its like Nintendo rushed a title out so that the 3DS has a Mario game sooner rather than later. 3DS can easily do something as big as Galaxy 2.

    Mario Kart 7...well while I didn't like the Wii game much this one does look a lot better but still...same game I played on the DS but prettier. I'm hoping future Smash Bros games aren't gonna suffer the same fate.

    The only game from Nintendo this year and looking out into next year that looks to further its genre & franchise and be more than just "another entry in the series" is Zelda which several months ago did look pretty meh and now just sounds like its something of a modern classic.

    I might pre-order one, I just need to know what launch game I'll get.

    Sadly had to cancel it since I need to get my new laptop paid for first, but will probably get a wifi version at Walmart on release with my discount.
