I am a huge Taiko no Tatsujin fan, and noticed there are 3-4 games from that series for the PSP. There is only a downloadable port from the Japanese PSN PS store that is playable on the Vita.

Should I jump up to the Vita with hopes that the games one day appear on the Vita, or do I just buy a 'used' blue Japanese PSP and import the games?

(I make sure all of my handheld consoles are blue models (青)).

I found a blue Japanese PSP-3000 in 'Very Good' condition for about $140/shipped.

Ideas?

Go for the Vita, the old PSP doesn't have any region locks on it.
As far as I know, the Vita does.

The Vita doesn't have Region locks either, you'll need a JP PSN account though on the Vita,
