I'm thinking about buying a PS vita, but I'm not sure if it's something I'll use twice and be bored with. So without taking the price into consideration, voting entirely on entertainment factor, is the PS Vita worthwhile?

I couldn't buy it now if I wanted to. By the time things get better for me, the price will be better. That's what I believe anyway.

Get PS Vita, and I'd get certain games for sure, but as far as import, I'd get Dream Club Zero because I can.

as an owner of a Vita: I'd say buy it if cash really isn't a factor...

though it doesn't have a grand library(though it hasn't been out for a year) it has some great games:

Uncharted: Golden Abyss
Gravity Rush
Unit 13
Resistance: Burning Skies(I say this because the story's good but the MP is kinda half-assed)
Marvel vs. Capcom(and you get all the DLC for free as it's already included)

as of right now Gamestop is doind a "buy a vita and get a $50 gift card..that's basically a free game!!!

I actually just bought one 2 weeks ago, and so far I absolutely love it. Granted I got it for $100 off (coupon + special), so buying MGS and a 16GB memory card brought me back up to around the same price the system alone would have been after tax (around $280-$285).

I do have issue with the lack of games and promised features (such as PS1 support, which is coming out in a few updates). Sony promised a lot more than it delivered, but at this point I just put it out of my mind because I am getting use out of the system.

I currently have MGS, Disgaea 3, MvC, P3P and a copy of Lumines my friend has lent me for the time being. Every game there (minus this iteration of Lumines) is available on consoles, sure, but in reality, that's what I've always wanted. I have always wanted to be able to play most console games wherever I go without lugging around an Xbox/Playstation, so if Sony continues to port older games, I'm seriously fine with it.

Don't get me wrong, I definitely want new games soon (really soon!) but so far I'm really happy with the purchase. I just really hope the PS1 support comes soon because I've held off playing the MGS collection so I could start off with MGS1 (I've played them all and know the story order, but I like playing games by release order).

Furthermore, Sony needs to get it's act together and give me more PSP games. I didn't have many PSP games to begin with (I used my PSP mainly for emulators and homebrew) so spending a few bucks here and there on a good PSP games is worth it to me, especially since a lot of them have gone on sales.

Buy VITA in September, if you must.
Ragnarak Odyssey comes out in September, and Persona4 Golden, Assassin's Creed 3, and Zero Escape comes out in October.

I'm an owner of a vita and i remember being on the fence about the system since it's release. The titles were good but lacking when it came to numbers, and it looked to have many of the same problems I had with the PSP when it came to Internet issues and what seemed to be over priced products. Then one day 2 months ago i woke up at 10am, went down to EB Games, spent $425.00 on the system and other items i need for it and have no regrets. Sure there maybe a new version that ends up being cheaper and somehow better, but really it doesn't matter considering the fact it's the same system and it will be around for a long time. It is expensive once your done purchasing the stuff you need for it, but if you have the money then go for it. After the summer you will see much more sweeter titles coming out so just be patient. I suggest if you do buy the system to get a 16 or 30GB (it may be 32) because there is a high chance you will want to buy some games off the online store which takes up a fair amount of memory. Anyway like I said just go for it, get the system and have fun (buy Wipeout and Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, best games I have played on it so far).

I pre-ordered the Assassin's Creed edition that comes out in late October. You get a special white system, and pretty much get a memory card and game for free. ...sure, if Vita prices really drop by September, than the game won't seem free any more.

With that being said, I am having second thoughts and think of getting the 3ds instead - or just neither, since I find I enjoy playing games on my iPad. I do know the 3ds and Vita are the better gaming platforms, but my iPad is like my take everywhere buddy (I know, sad), and a game system would just be one more gadget to carry around.

Wait next year.
As it is now,the number of games available aren't worth it yet.
In other words,it's got no worthwhile games.

Same goes for the 3DS. Wait next year until they get a proper model with a freakin' right stick this time.
Also no worthwhile games.

Try to wait for the sweet assassins creed bundle, the system is in white;that is if you prefer that color over black anyway

Im a day 1 owner and it's been money well spent, i can't wait to try out Call of duty and Assassins creed on it.

I love my Vita. Can't wait for PS All Stars.

I'm finally going back to college, so I know my Vita and 3DS usage are going to skyrocket pretty soon.

I guess it all depends if you like the games they have for the system
