The Wi-Fi only Vita will hold a price tag of $250 while the 3G(AT&T)/Wi-Fi model will run $300

At the E3 Expo in June of this year, Sony announced its newest upcoming portable, PlayStation Vita. For those of you who have been waiting to get your hands on one, Vita will be available to purchase in February 2012.

PS Vita offers social networking apps called "Party" and "Near," which allow users organize friend lists, discuss what you're doing online, and reveal where you are (much like Facebook's "Check-in").

A total of 26 games will be available on launch day, and another 100 are currently in production. A few games that Sony announced at E3 were "LittleBigPlanet," "Uncharted: Golden Abyss," and "Street Fighter X Tekken."


In addition, a new feature on Vita allows gamers to save their game on the portable system using "cloud saving," which can then be resumed on the PS3.

The Wi-Fi only Vita will hold a price tag of $250 while the 3G(AT&T)/Wi-Fi model will run $300. It will hit stores in Japan on December 17, 2011, and arrive in North America on February 22, 2012.

Many are wondering how well the Vita will be received, considering the Nintendo 3DS, which offers 3D features, was initially introduced with a $249.99 price tag and didn't sell so well. Nintendo decided to slash the 3DS' price to $169.99 only four months after its release.

As I said elsewhere in response to a comment of yours, as long as I and others are willing to pay $60 for a game, there will be someone making that $60 game. And I will get what I pay for.

How do you figure that those games will disappear?

Do you think a significant amount of people are at the store looking at $1 games and $60 games side by side and saying, "I was going to get Black Ops, but now that I see this $1 game...I'll get it instead!"

It is like you think that:

Scenario A)
Since the Corolla is selling for 15k, Acura might as well give up because everyone is going to buy the cheap car. Too bad the Corolla exists, otherwise 100% of the people would be driving Acuras...at least the ones who can afford it. Why must Toyota give people that freedom?! There will be no quality cars now!!!

Scenario B)
Since used, clearance games and otherwise cheap games of various varieties sell for $1 or near close to it, they are also ruining the industry! Blast GOG.com to hell!! Now we have no quality games!!

Scenario C)
Since The Raven buys approx 50% of the (many) games that he buys are used and 'old' he is ruining the industry!! I also heard that he plays open source games, gasp! Good buy Infinity Ward!
