Going to pick my pre-order up from Game at lunch-time. Very excited. Decided to get the 3G after all - the copy of Wipeout for a £5 top-up was the deciding factor. Was going to buy this anyway but this deal brought the price of the two versions close enough to warrant pushing the boat out a bit further Can't wait!

Picked up Uncharted, Hot Shots Golf, Wipeout, and a 32gb memory card last night. Vita should arrive today via Amazon. Yay!

I been having Vital for a week now and it rocks. The vita is a mobile platform that they can do so much with, there are so many apps that can be made for this platform. And in terms of Facebook I saws video of the UK version was very slow. So maybe they fixing up before it release out here

It's beautiful.... can't stop staring at it. I haven't even turned the thing on yet. I traded in my 360 and MW3. Got around 135 in credit. Picked up the system, Uncharted, and an 8g card. The memory's so small. People complain about the new mandatory card, but that's just BS. They've put that much into something so small, in order to keep the size and weight of the system down, and to prevent piracy. Which is what really devastated the PSP and kept developers from investing. I don't have any problems at all. And it's just so pretty, and a LOT lighter than i thought it would be. Couldn't be happier.

@James Thanks James - Hats off to you guys on the BLOG - very well done and great content. Just check and no go yet but not a big deal.

very excited about my vita, but my ac adaptor doesn't work. Apparently it charges when it's off and plugged into the PS3, but no luck plugging it into a wall. Has anyone heard anything like this happening to others?
