I say money well spent, at least for now. Now all I need is a few reviews of Persona 4 .
Shmups are one of the only cases where I sometimes prefer touch controls over physical sticks and buttons, but only for vertical ones. I think horizontal shmups such as Sine Mora play much better with sticks.

There are quite a few reviews for P4G already, nearly all stellar (metascore of 94!).

Thanks for the impressions guys. I'm sure Rockstar will make some games for the Vita eventually. I think I read somewhere they planned on releasing something for it.

They tweeted over a year ago that they had gotten Vita dev kits and were in the process of developing a game for the Vita or something like that.

I'm sure I'll get used to them. It's a gorgeous I game, in any event.

Thanks for the tip on P4G. I'll probably hold off for a couple of weeks (want to give AC:L a bit more of a chance), but I'll definitely pick it up soon.

I'm really pleased with the Firmware version 2 I'm convinced everything is faster now not only the browser.

I've been watching movies on the Vita the last few days and one of the things I noticed before the update was a my bluetooth Speaker was slightly out of sync and pretty much useless with the Vita although it always worked fine with my phone.

Tried it again and everything syncs up perfectly, it's actually working well enough that it has made me reconsider buying a Nexus 7 I think between the vita and my Phone I've all bases covered.

Basicly I think the update has turned the Vita into a much better device all round it actually feels like a quadcore now.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

Looks like if they ever make a PS Vita Slim or some other updated version of the Vita I may have to buy a white one. (that would stand out from all the black, sliver and dark red-black mobile devices, laptops, ... in my room.)

$179.99 deal from Amazon???

I've been debating wether to buy one,or buy a iPad 4/mini.But the Black Friday deal was a BEST-BUY deal.I have every device of mine in black (PS3,iPhone 4S,iPad 2,iPod touch 5,my monitor,TV,but only this will be white one )

I bought Uncharted : GA and Most Wanted for it.SO for only ~$274 I got the White Limited PS Vita,4GB memory card,AC 3 : L,Uncharted,Most Wanted,and today I got an email from Amazon that as a gift for my purchase they gave me Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale and 3 months of PS+ service (3x1 month code) FOR FREE.How sweet from Amazon.

Did you got this email from them,or you bought from somewhere else?
