5.0 out of 5 stars Best time to buy a vita!, 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony PS Vita WiFi Console with 10 game Mega Pack on 8GB Memory Card (PlayStation Vita) (Console)
I have been on the edge to buy a Vita since it came out, but the price has hold me back from buying it for a year. Now with this amazing bundle I finally got won over by Sony, and I'm glad I did! An 8GB memory card and 10 games to get you going makes this an absolute steal. To be honest, you won't like all the games they bundle with this. Half of the games you won't be too much interested in, but you don't have to. Just the 8 gigs of storage included gives you a better deal than buying a vita on its own. I personally am loving wipeout 2048 and lbp psvita is in my opinion the best one in the series. I also relived some memories with ratchet and clank and lemmings.

The people that complain about the playstation vita are often the ones that have bought the system at launch, meaning that there weren't too many games out and some minor flaws were present, but buy it now and the best games are available to you day one and for a fraction for the price(, not to forget that with playstation plus you get many games such as uncharted for free), so this system will keep you busy for a very long time. If you are CONSIDERING getting a vita GET ONE NOW. Great games available from the get-go + awesome games to look forward to in the future. if you want a more in-depth look of the system you can continue reading...

-additional information-

Screen: Overall I am loving the screen. Vibrant colours and a nice amount of pixels p/inch. Once I First booted up my Vita a was a bit disappointed with the screen as the colour consistency felt a bit off to me, but as I started playing my first game I took everting back
I thought. I must say that when the screen is producing a certain type of black, some darker marks are visible which appears to be a normal thing with all 'oled' screens, but I have not find this bothersome during gameplay.
The touch screen is also super responsive (a good thing) even more responsive than my iPad.

Comfortability: Holding the device properly takes some getting use to. I have large hands and I find myself touching the back touchpad by mistake.
It is not very heavy even though it doesn't even come close to the weight of a modern smartphone. I would say it is about the weight of an iPad mini.
I you want to carry this thing around in your pockets you'll need large and deep ones. It is generally ok, but if you wear skinny jeans, you might struggle.

Battery: Good, considering it how much power it has. You won't get it through a whole day though if you playing a graphically intense game, but by playing some psp titles you can play this thing for ages.

Overall a 5 star deal!
+ Best possible Vita deal right now
+ 10 games will keep you busy for a while
+ vibrant, responsive screen

- Can be difficult to carry in pocket
- proprietary memory cards

Hi, thanks for the insightful review though i was wondering.
It appears to be that the first reviewer had both of his items (original and replacement) inner ps vita box open so this issue is kind of holding me back from buying, i know there's another seller specifying why it is that its opened so I meant to ask if so was yours? As long as everything inside including the Vita are Brand New no problem but if they are not it is something to keep in mind.

sorry for the late reply. No my Vita came out of the box completely new. I think that the person complaining about his vita being a refurbished one was just the odd unlucky one.
