    Great to see that every single human race is represented in the ad.. The ad is cringe worthy to be honest.

    How much?


  • Registered Users Posts: 202 ✭✭ seanob43


    The WiFi version is going to cost €250 and the 3G and Wifi will cost €300,similar to the iPad.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,345 ✭✭✭ Somnus


    Been interested since announcement of the price. I never had a psp (or even gameboy :eek:) and that price for this kind of hardware is class in my opinion.

    So I'll most likely pick one up at some point anyway


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,312 ✭✭✭ sink


    Portable or not, Who the hell play's video games while walking?


  • Registered Users Posts: 202 ✭✭ seanob43


    Sony now have the hardware.All we need now is the games to go with it.

  • Registered Users Posts: 202 ✭✭ seanob43


    Sony haven't stated a specific release date for Europe or anywhere ,for that matter but at E3 they said they had "a planned 2011" release date.


    Also if anyone has any Vita questions feel free to ask me either on this thread or on PM.:D

    Thanks,
    Sean

    Ipads are more expensive than that are they?:)

    cant wait for the vita :)

    Its a definite day one purchase for me (possibly even the jap version as i'm currently based in asia-pac).

    I can't emphasise enough how much gaming and value for money I got from the original psp. Been playing it since launch and still playing it today (plane/train journeys).

    Look at the guy at 1.32 in the advert, how awkward is his grasp?! And his facial expression!

    No I was referring to how an iPad 3G costs $50 extra than the WiFi edition.Sony are doing the same thing with the Vita

    While it is a day-one purchase for me also, I have to say I hate the menu system. Bring back the XMB please!

    Have you played with it yet?I got some hands-on with it at E3 and have to say I don't think XMB would of worked that well with the Vita,I think a new menu system was required,saying that though the current menu doesn't really work better than XMB its just different.

    But lets not worry,Sony still has time to change and tweak the system.Remember the original boomerang controller design for the PS3 that Sony said they're sticking with?.;)

    I haven't had the chance to see it for myself. My objections are more aesthetic than functional.

    I actually liked the boomarang look! :/

    Why? The ad is more like a social network promotion. Its impossible to tell anything about the device except that it has buttons, a screen, wi-fi & is black from that ad.


  • Registered Users Posts: 914 ✭✭✭ DarkDusk


    I got a tip-off from gamestop yesterday. The lad at the counter said they were expecting a Nov/Dec release but have been informed it is going to be as early as September! I just can't wait!

    Yeah I get what you mean but we're in a gaming forum.:p

    Hmm that's very interesting,did he say anything else?

    More like €120

    Can't say I'm too impressed by the ad. Would be more inclined to put the money towards a SE Play or an Android tablet.

    Ah yeah, I think that was just Amacachi being tongue in cheek about it. I hope it has a high focus on gaming, & less focus on what Stephen Fry thinks about London's congestion charge on Friday mornings.

    Yeah I was just being obtuse but that ad doesn't really fill one with hope.
