I bought this not too long ago and so far it's exceeded my expectations. The fact that you can use the touch screen while playing Vita specific games makes it all the more fun..............
Responsive touch screen/touch area on back of device,
Being able to fully customize the interface with various pictures,
Ability to play PSP downloadable games-downloadable straight through the device itself-,
Front and rear cameras,
Being able to screenshot just about anything-except when playing games-,
Dual analog sticks,
Icons look childish,
Music app could be better,
Having to use Vita software through the Vita to transfer and copy files to and from computer,
Proprietary USB cable and memory cards,
Overall, awesome device. I use it for browsing, games, music, video, and as my camera.
I loved the PSP but my DS took my time. Now that Vita has arrived for a few months, I can safely say I love it more than any handheld.
Its a PS3 in your hands, lets you play PSP download games and so much more. the added analog stick is a plus, proving that physical controls are superior to touch-only-based devices
