The PSP (2000 model in particular) is my favourite handheld console of all time so getting the Vita was an instant buy (since it's basically a more powerful PSP with a second stick) for me. Wipeout 2048 being announced for it just made the decision easier since I absolutely love the seris. It's by far my favourite Sony franchise which I will miss dearly thanks to Sony.
Current Playing: Front Mission 4 (I finally imported a USA PS2), Forza Motorsport and Wipeout Series.
Bought it cause it was brand new and I was in money burning mode and instead of buying some stuffs for my motorcycle I bought it instead. Got Ninja Gaiden with it but got bored fast. I love NG though, but it's like trying to climb a +90 degree cliff. With that said though, I've already put in 300 hours in P4G and about 100 in Disgaea. With Dragons Crown and Muramasa in the horizon, I'm glad I bought that instead of motorcycle junk (Which I got a huge discount for since I waited a bit).
Overall great purchase. Still hasn't beaten my hacked PSP GO for mobile gaming though, that little thing is just amazing.
