Also, do I have to use sonys proprietary memory cards or do standard SD cards work?

I suggest you look at the features before you decide. If you like the better screen, get the current. If the slightly better battery life and thinner system is more your thing, wait. And every Vita uses the Vita only memory cards.

The 3DS and PSVita are both outstanding systems. Wally the Equality Weasel says so.

I thought as much, thanks for clarifying.

You need the proprietary cards. Rumors are circling that Gamestop is selling 16gb for $20 as an after Xmas sale.

I don't think the new model has been confirmed for localization yet. I personally think the OLED screen is better but the new model has a better battery. If you see yourself playing for more than 5 hours before you can charge, then it might be worthwhile to wait. Otherwise, grab the original and charge In between use.

I don't troll and usually could care less if other people do. If you continuously troll me, expect a bizarre, off the wall reply.

It sounds nice to have a thinner system with better battery life, but it is going to cost more, and I don't know the release date for NA.

It is not just the longer battery life, it is also because of the usb charging. I no longer need to carry the bulky charger with me or carry their charge cable with a usb adapter and can simply use the usb cable I use for pretty much all my devices and should I lose them, I can find a replacement anywhere. This has made me more incline to take it with me around town and on trips.

The lighter weight/comfort also make it more likely to be with me on the go. I pretty much need a grip to play the 1000 and grips are bulky. I can play the 2000 without grip (fortunately too since there wasn't when I ordered...) so the various little things make it more likely to pick up the vita to play than before with the 1000.

Dang, I should've jumped on the NewEgg BF deal for $150 and bought the $10 8GB card from Amazon. Would've been $160, no tax. T.T

Best Buy's deal is showing up as $190ish with shipping and tax.
