The lights are on
I just realized that we are less than a month away from the release of the PS Vita, and I’m not nearly as excited as I should be for the release of new video game system.
Sony’s PlayStation Vita releases on February 22 here in the states. I don’t think I’ll be waiting in line to get one. Granted, I’ve already played with the thing, so I’m not super eager to try it for the first time. But, I’m also not really excited to spend around $300 to own one. I think it’s a great piece of hardware, and I’m really looking forward to playing Uncharted: Golden Abyss and a few other games, but I’m still hesitant to buy a system on day one? I kind of feel like I got burned with my PSP purchase – which I don’t think I used nearly enough. I also have an iPhone now, and I do a lot of mobile gaming on that now. So, I’m going to wait. I’ll probably buy a Vita when the price drops and its library has filled out, but part of me wishes I was excited for the release of a new video game system.
What about the rest of you. Are you planning on buying a PS Vita on day one? If not, why? What would send you over the edge and make you want one more?

300 bucks is too much. so not for a while
Maybe after a price drop, the memory cards make it too expensive. Maybe when I can get it ALL for $250.
I want one, I just won't be picking one up on launch day due to lack of money. Maybe in a couple of months I'll get one.
