After charging it.. 20mins of it just be on screen locks up & slow bleachs white then slowly black touch screen still works & stuff seems to be still run in the background (sound) like normal but you can't see anything. Don't buy this online, go instore & you can also can get a warranty on at for a year for a little extra

The PS Vita is the successor for the PSP. Whether the PS Vita is New or Used, I recommend you don't buy it yet. For starters, I've owned one and have huge regret buying it. The screen has cracked once by a simply stick poke my cousin did and I had to end up paying $130 for a repair. But apart from crack screens it also has some hardware problems. Every now and then the system will freeze, etc and so on. It can easily be fixed but it sure is annoying. Not to mention the system does not have much great games to the library as yet and most of the games consist of downgraded versions of the Xbox360 and PS3 games. Overall it's not bad but not promising (just yet). It's best you wait a little more before getting this. I recommend the 3DS over this any day....Just putting it out there....it's the truth...You would be better off with a 3DS for now.

I am going to start this off by saying that the vita is an amazing system. My one complaint is the batter life, three hours is ok but not a lot, the battery is the only reason it gets a nine and not a ten. The system I got from gamestop was like new, there was no noticeable indication that this was a used product. I got it with the buy 2 get 1 free deal and it was a great save, got the system, a memory card, and a game (Killzone Mercenary, great game by the way). The vita looks amazing for a handheld and is overall a great experience. If you are debating getting one I would definitely recommend getting it.

People who reviewed the vita on this site obviously don't know quality when they see it. This handheld is perfect for either on-the-go or at home play. Does it freeze? Yes, but for me, I never turn it off, it's usually on or on sleep mode, which causes the problem. Not to worry, just hold down the power button when frozen for 30 seconds. It will take care of the problem. Scratches? My vita does have 1 note scratch but its on the rear touch pad and it doesn't affect any game play. So no need to worry. Games wise, there's already a huge collection of them but it depends on the gamer. If Vita games aren't enough you also have access to the psp library. The vita can also connect to a psp via ad hoc for local multiplayer. Note that not all games are vita ad hoc compatible. If that's not enough there are even some ps3 titles that are cross platform so you can either: play with a ps3 player through your handheld, cross save, and at times cross buy. I would go on and on but there's a lot to cover. If you're interested in the use of psn, it works just like the ps3 psn does. Yes you can add friends, see whose online, send messages, game invites, etc. In addition the vita had a built in party app which is similar to Microsoft Xbox live party chat. If you're still wondering about anything else vita related, go surf the web. For this review is long enough. SO, Buy a vita, its a purchase you won't regret.
Rated 1 out of 10 by nintendude33 Waste of my money
I was exited for this but when I got it on launch day I turned it on and it looked clear but the touch screen sucks and is the games aren't so great. I ended up returning it and got a 3ds Witch ended up having slightly better graphics and the 3d mode is not to over the top and had a way better touch screen. Over all this is a bad buy don't waste you cash.
Rated 3 out of 10 by pricne1165 Not a good buy for the price tag.
For starter ive had my PSV since the launch and haven't played it a month after the launch. The system Freez from time to time theres hardly a verity of games thats out and all the functionalities i can do on my vita i can do pretty much on my roku box. If your gonna buy a vita i suggest you hold off till they drop the price.

the ps vita is a cool system to play on its better then the psp because is has faster wifi and it can last forever.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Py6s4ym8 Its just that great.
My first thought when I turned it on was "Wow that's clear", so its no joke about the screen. The back touchscreen works a lot better than I thought it would. I almost prefer this over the PS3. If your going to buy one, all I recommend, is getting a bigger memory card. :D
Rated 7 out of 10 by OJTIEGA Works well but...
When I received my Vita it had scratches all over like it had been in a sandstorm it also looked as if it had been dropped a couple of times but it's been working great so far just wish it was in better condition.
