The day you bought your PlayStation Vita

 

Ahh, the excitement of picking up your brand new console! There is nothing quite like it! Why not share your stories of your launchday!

 

Pictures would be awesome, from you queuing up, to getting home, to the unboxing! We want to see it all!

For me I'll be up at the crack of dawn, catching the 8.18am bus, so I should get into town in time for HMV opening time at 9am.

I'll be paying for my PS Vita in cash, so that if I need a refund from them, I can get the refund in cash, and go elsewhere straight away.

I'll also be opening the PS Vita up at the checkout before I walk away, to make sure there's no dead pixels or anything like that, and to make sure it turns on etc. Any other errors past that will have to wait until I get home

I'll be heading straight home to wait in for Ridge Racer from Amazon to arrive, and hope that I didn't miss the parcel while I was out.

Then I'll put on my screen protector and make an awful unboxing video

Yep, I will be doing the same, collecting from HMV and making sure all is good before leaving.  The perks of in-store buying :Thumbs:

Well, my local gamestation where I pre-ordered from, is opening at 7.30. So, I've got the missus dropping me off at the store at around 7 ish (small town with only ten pre-orders at GS means I'll probably be the first there). I've put £500 on one of those gift card things they have so theres no time wasted counting cash. I'm literally running out of that store with the 3g vita, a 16gb card, a hard case, and as many games (including uncharted and UMvC3) as that gets me. I've been waiting like a little kid for Christmas ever since I heard about this beautiful piece of tech last E3. I was hoping we'd get a midnight release but apparently theres just not enough people pre-ordered in store. Damn my tiny home town!!! It's a conspiracy to keep me away from my vita for an extra seven and a half hours!!! lol

Turns out HMV opens at 8.30am and not 9am, so I should get my PS Vita 30 minutes earlier. I'm so itchy and fidgety it's not funny anymore! TORTURE!
