I'm doing the same. Realistically though, I'm not expecting it to start processing until Sunday at the earliest.

Best Buy: No confirmation on trade-in bonuses. Can still preorder in-store for 22nd launch. They should have "most games" but since games are on sale now, he said not to expect them to all be there on the 22nd.

Toys R Us: Will not confirm specifics, but they are having a Vita promotion starting Sunday. My store will not be carrying 32GB cards. They already have most games out including Rayman.

Obviously, your store may vary. But this may help you plan.

Well that sucks. What's the point of the B2G1 deal. If they don't most of the games.

I hope Amazon does, but they've stopped selling anything PSN related directly for the past few months. I loved buying my PSN point codes from them in the past.

It certainly has an effect on my plans. I was hoping to swing by Target and TRU on Sunday or Monday and get all the games and accessories I wanted, then I'd just swing by and get my system at midnight on the 22nd, and be all set for my trip that morning. May have to rethink that strategy some, although trips to both Target and TRU will probably still be in the cards.

It does not exist right now, like half the ideas Sony has. But it shouldn't be too difficult to implement. As I said, Sony mentioned in the past retailers will carry download codes for retail titles.

Ya, I'm suffering from this "problem" too... I've got Uncharted, Li'l Deviants, Wipeout 2048, UMvC3, Virtua Tennis 4, Escape Plan and Super Stardust Delta, with Army Corps of Hell and Ninja Gaiden Sigma on the way... So far, I've played Super Stardust, Prinny and Uncharted... for hours... and loving it...

I keep thinking I should load up another game, but I'm not ready to move on from these yet... :)

I think there could be lots of opportunities for retailers. Imagine a beautiful, truly high quality art card of the game in question. They could put the code inside the shrinkwrap on another slip or something. It'd be like purchasing an art postcard.

Nintendo has already done artsy things for the network cards in Japan (special editions with Zelda etc). It really might make people more interested in buying digital value or games in physical stores.

Do you have to access them only to play live tournaments? What about asynchronous multiplayer?

What's up with that? I'm a prime user, so I would get two day free shipping, and regardless, its free release date shipping anyways, so is this the same for anybody else?

Don't know if folks are also wondering about this, but I double dipped on The Warriors and it definitely works. Again, with most Rockstar titles, camera control is done by holding one button and swiveling an analog stick. Still, so happy it works on the Vita!

Not as far as I see. I just go there because it's far more social. You hop right into tournaments without entering them I believe. Someone can correct me but in honesty, I've only done lobbies but could see if going straight in would save that hassle of going into a lobby.

I recall the camera being the weird reversed camera controls, is there an option for both clock and counter clockwise, loved the warriors, not very good on PSP though, due to controls.

I reserved my 3g vita last week and its estimated for the 22nd. Did you select release date delivery when they made it available? They don't switch you automatically.

Camera is definitely just alright. I mapped the right analog stick to the left, so I hold L+Right stick to move camera about when standing still. More importantly, it helps in graffiti/throwing gameplay. I think it is a stellar port (I had the UMD, played it to completion without problems).

How about that? Someone with a decent camera finally took pics of their Vita.
Those look GLORIOUS!

Incidentally, I'm also now stuck with the same credit card issue as jcutner.
Worked fine purchasing games last Thursday & this past Tuesday. Then "just stopped".

Still funds on the account. Still usable on other sites. Bank not blocking purchases from PlayStation Store. Even bought BlazBlue briefly after the issue first manifested.
Now there's nothing but error codes on the Vita and my PS3. Was able to pick up a Canadian PSN card digitally online as a short-term solution but this is certainly less than ideal.

Man, I would love to see a 3DS XL. That screen is soooo tiny and not well suited for 3D as a result. A nice 5" screen ala Vita would be awesome even with the low DPI it would bring.

All I ordered was one game, but am curious.

My Uncharted shipped on the 15th and is out for delivery today. I guess that means I should expect my Vita to arrive around Friday next week.

LOVE the digital game manuals.

However, its hilarious that certain publishers still keep them shitty black and white, even though they are for the Vita scren, not being printed.

Oh, Sega. Virtua Tennis Vita is a hell of a good game, but lol at your black and white manual.


Ps. Dear Vita Web Browser, fuck you for not having copy paste yet.

GAH!!! This first edition case is driving me insane. No matter what I do I can't get that smell to go away :( I sprayed it with perfume and let it air out,but it's still there :( I just don't want my Vita to continue catching that stench. Has anyone found a method that worked? I'm almost considering picking up one of those travel pouches.
