So, Vita's AT&T pricing is the exact same they're offering with the iPad with a maximum of 2GB in a month.

$15 for 250MB and $25 for the 2GB.

However, today they announced that Netflix should be available on Day 1 when the Vita launches in North America -- which is awesome. I love having access to Netflix on so many devices...it makes the $8/month fee for that more than worth it.

its only going to lead to less money if people don't cave and just RE-BUY the PSN version off the store.

Which most people won't do...enough people weren't even willing to do it with the discount, you think they're going to cave and pay full on for it instead? Highly unlikely.

I had 2 questions (not sure if they were mentioned anywhere), but will the 2 spot gamesharing be enabled for Vita PSN games and/or Vita full games? Also, I know that PS1 games, and possibly mini's and PSN games might not be able to be played on the Vita immediately (or possibly at all - who knows), but if and when, it's safe to say things we get on PSN+ or buy on PS3 regardless, even in a gameshare, will be playable on the Vita, correct?

For anyone looking for a screen protector I've heard good things about these so far so I'm thinking of ordering one ($22 though  * wry smile * ). I just hope it gets here by the 22nd since they ship from UK.

In addition to the front screen cover it also comes with a protector to cover the rear touch pad. Apparently some people who imported the system say the rear pad gets scratched up much easier so it is a good idea to cover it.

Regarding older PSP/PS1/PSN content:
http://blog.us.playstation.com/2012/02/09/how-to-d...

As for the accounts, I think it will be on the 2 unit limit just like the PS3 is now. But, it will be like the PSP were you have to manually change them every time.

So it sounds like PSX games will be probably sometime down the road, while psp, psn, and mini's might be limited with possible added titles down the road. Hopefully they will not drop support or do a half assed job. So I take it we will be using the same PSN/SEN account as our PS3 of vita's online service?

Will we be using our original PSN account login and username? Also, will any of the psp games support dual analog sticks, aside from collections or rehashes, of course.

I don't see any reason that you can't use your original PSN account information. I think that for the PSP games, you can remap the buttons to use both analog sticks.

New Zealandism: possibly yes ("I vow to thee my cooouuunnntry, all earthly things above"... yet... not so much  * winking raspberry * ). Work relationships: not so much, unless you mean RickHarrisons avatar-for-somewhat-sexist-fantasies who is also named Sarah  * winking raspberry *

Just curious but what kind of guy goes around talking to a lady like that? A piece of crap? That would be my guess. Some people come in here to actually check out info pertaining to the topic, not to read drivel formed by stunted brain cells.

Wow. I never expected a comment like this on Gametz. I actually found the comment pretty disgusting too. I suppose my usual response it to just joke it off, ignore it and hope people stop talking like that. Props to you sir  * smile *

I didn't realise that he screwed over his SS. What a fudging tool.

So anyone interested in Gravity Rush,I've heard nothing but good things as to how original it feels.My first games will be UC,Gravity Rush,Ninja Gaiden and later Resistance and MGS HD.Not sure when Gravity Rush releases though since it was pushed back till later.

I went ahead and stuck with the First ed. Bundle,I guess it's personal prefrence instead if going with the 3G bundle at $299.

In the WipEout manual it apparently states that before you start a multiplayer race you can take a picture of yourself to send to opponents if you win. Perfect reason to start shaving your balls gentlemen.

A lot of games work that aren't listed as well.... Games like Valkyria Chronicles II definitely works, but isn't on that list...so it'll be interesting to see what other titles work as well.
