Is there any other make of memory cards you can buy for the vita or do the "PS VITA" cards compatible with the vita? Think Sony are bit sneeky making there own cards for the device easy way of them making more momey.

Unfortunately not. The only choice is the official Sony Vita memory cards. Making extra money may be a by product but it's not about that and more to do with trying to prevent piracy by having proprietory cards. Blame the pirates.

Just wanted to check , is it OK to play on the Vita while charging via the AC adapter?  By doing so, will the battery wear quicker over time?  I have read conflicting reports online and wasn't sure.

It's perfectly fine. I do it all the time with my portable electronic devices including the Vita.

 Congrats on your purchase, and you are right, the Vita IS awesome!  Make sure to pick up Uncharted for it, that really is a superb game.

Im 37 and glad to see there are others around that are still kids at heart too, I have always loved gaming and love it as much today as I did as a kid.

I did start to wonder if there were many other gamers out there who were my age or older as a lot of user profile names have birth years on them and not many of them were around mine lol, also I tried that HOME on the PS3 and seems most people on that are young too.

But alas good to see there are still plenty of gamers in our age bracket Rick.

 

Also congrats on your PS Vita, it really is a great little console, I'm looking forward to getting Resistance Burning Skies for it tomorrow and the tee shirt I was promised with pre order :)

Hi guys! Not new to gaming consoles as I am a proud owner of a PS3, Xbox 360, Wii and a PS Vita which I bought about 6 weeks ago from Heathrow airport. Great price as well as I got a 3G vita with a 4GB card and Uncharted Golden Abyss for £230.

 

I think its a fabulous system. Actually all 4 of them are great!

Just got Resistance Burning Skies a couple weeks ago, loved the teeshirt that came with it through special pre order deal to with Eb Games.  Anyone else playing it?  I have to admit I thought it was a little dull at first, and weak story, but it picks up after a couple stages starts getting better and the amount of guns in it is great, not to mention secondary fires it has.  Just trying to now find on the internet what the hidden trophies are :)

Silly question alert!

if I get a WiFi vita and get a super score on let's say super stardust delta while I'm at work where theres no internet. Can I upload that score to the leaderboards when I get home and get onto the network?

Trying to figure out if I'll be needing a 3g vita. I think were I will play it mostly is out and about with no internet.

Doesn't sound like a silly question, have wondered that myself.  I was playing Tales from Space when mutant blobs attack, or whatever its called, the other day on a long bus trip home from Wellington to Auckland, mine is a wifi only too.  After each stage it would ask me if I wanted to connect so I could upload my score, I had to just click on no but I don't think there were any options after that when you do connect up, to be able to send it??  Did you find out by any chance?

Hi, I'm wondering, has anyone that's signed up to the vita inside get the discount code for unit 13 and doesn't need or want it? I would appreciate it.
I signed up a week ago with 2 accounts specifically because it said would get an email with this voucher code and have to say I'm pretty disappointed at receiving nothing. The sale price ends is a day. Do they plan to send me it after the sale? :o/ not very happy with ps but would appreciate help from a kind vita owner.. :)
Thanks!

It's not possible I'm afraid. The US 3G Vitas are locked to AT&T and there is no way to unlock them. You would have been better off getting a UK/EU/AU/HK Vita as they are all unlocked.
