Great Bundle, System, and Game
First off, the bundle is already a great buy with the memory stick, game, and system. Now, I have owned both of the Vita systems and I must say I prefer the newer version. While the transfer to an LCD screen might instantly turn a lot of people off, I do not notice that much of a difference. The first few things I did notice was that the power light is on the top of the system right next to the power button. One thing I questioned was whether or not the battery life was really better than the old version. I'm here to say that it does last longer (maybe an hour or two depending on what you have on/running). A few other things I noticed include the triggers feel like they are better made and the start/select buttons are raised off the surface of the system itself. The game is also great. The ability to transfer my data was a nice feature and I am glad they included that. The only problem I have with the game is the controls, but most likely that will take some getting use to.
Can not get better deal!
I solely bought the PS vita to use remote play on my ps4, so I took advantage of this sweet paper-looking deal, Right? Was it worth my money?
Answer is YES, this bundle is worth every penny, the PS vita is smooth, beautiful, and has a premium feel to it. The screen is no doubt beautiful and ignore the people who believe this particular vita has an inferior screen than the previous version.
The memory card is a steal, being a 8 gig memory card, a value of about $20 (I believe). We all know the is was a dumb move from Sony forcing the customer to buy expensive memory cards but I digress.
Borderlands 2 is an awesome game, although it might have some pop-in and less AI's on the battlefield, it is still not short of being a bad game. The graphics are pretty sweet and the controls are firm, however it might take a little to get used to
Remote play is the reason why I bought the PS vita, and I have to say that it is more than I expected. Streaming Watch Dogs from my ps4 to my PS vita is an experience I have never had (never had a WII u). The Watch dogs on PS vita had even better graphics than borderlands itself. The streaming felt secure and had NO FRAME RATE ISSUES! However, I do not recommend remote play for first person shooters as the PS vita analogs are too sensitive. I recommend this for assassin creed unity, or shadow of mordor. As for the reliability for remote play, the range is phenomenal although the closer you are the better. To get this out of the way, you do not need internet to use remote play so do not worry if you have 3 mbps like I do (Los Angeles internet sucks)
Overall this game is worth buying especially if your family like to hog the T.V then the PS vita is for you! Although their are rumors that the PS vita is on its final years, I beg to differ because this system has the potential of becoming one of the best handhelds ever. Especially since PlayStation now will drop in (a service that lets people stream and rent games to their playstation console. So theoretically, it is possible to play games like uncharted or the last of us on the sake of my beautiful PS vita. Oh and the battery life last about 6-7 hours much better than the previous version. I sincerely recommend the PS vita
A great bundle
I bought this for the new vita because it is slimmer and lighter with stronger wifi and bluetooth antennas. But the second reason is Borderlands 2, the new system is much easier to hold and play for long sessions without getting hand cramps and the screen looks the same as the original I really didn't notice a difference. As for Borderlands 2 a great conversion, the big console versions are great but playing alone is tedious but when I played on Vita as soon as that borden began to hit I can put the system to sleep and comeback where I left off. This game shows what the Vita is capable and since this games was made for big consoles the conversion cut a few things in graphics. But even with the lack of certain things it still plays great and I enjoy it better than my ps3 version. The game is a great demonstration of what the vita can do and the Vita slim easier to play with and longer battery life. A great buy.
I've wanted a ps-vita for a while, and the slim is worth the wait! Longer battery life is very important to me, more time for gaming on the go! Plus the savings of like 60$ since the vita is 200$ regularly but now I can get it with borderlands 2 plus 8 gigs of memory! For the same price. The vita doesn't get enough credit as a handheld but hopefully more great games come to it like borderlands!
Great System but with one problem
The system is great and the game it comes with is amazing. But the 8 gigabyte memory card does not have enough space. I have a 64 gigabyte card and I only 21 gigabytes left. A 32 or 64 memory card is must buy for a PS Vita.
Same Game, Slim Version of Vita
Although I beat borderlands 2. I still did the game code. What I did after that was erase my game after playing it for 8 hours and realizing I haven't got a single trophy. Went into my game collection on PS plus and checked a few things out. Since its only a 8GB memory card, I can't really do much. I am a first time owner of a playstation vita. I did not get any trophies because of what I previously did on the PS3 version. So the bundle system was a good offer but bad choice on the game. Even a god of war collection would have been bad because I got all the trophies for that too. I didn't waste my money however, The vita is a neat handheld device. I was playing Soul Sacrifice. Interesting story so far. Since I have a PS Plus membership I have access to free games. Downloaded Unit 13 and after I am done I will play Uncharted: Golden Abyss. Do not really care for Borderlands 2. I just wanted the Slim Vita with all the new tech. Plus the 8GB memory card which I am upgrading to a 32GB because of my PSone games, VIta, and PSP games I want to own.
Now is the time to buy Vita!
As an early adopter of the Vita, I was initially unimpressed. There were just not many titles which impressed me so I sold the system. Fastforward 2 years and I decided to pick up the new slim model which came bundled with Borderlands and a memory card. I can't believe how good this thing is now. It has so many excellent titles now and I'm having a blast playing it, something I never said with my firet Vita. Bottom line is this; If you've been hesitant to pick one of these things up because of a perceived lack of good games, that problem has been addressed and there are now multiple high quality titles available.
Pre-ordering this for sure. I've been looking for a reason to pick up a vita and now I found it. Borderlands 2 with 6 dlc packs! Awesome! Just wish that they included ALL dlc packs like the game of the year edition. Either way this is a definite buy for me.
