As you all know, PlayStation Vita launched in Japan this past weekend, and we’ve been excited to hear which games have been the most popular with our friends across the Pacific.

Oh my Sony, 60 dollars for a memory card. :( That means I will be buying one less game at launch.

Thanks Loudninja

That’s right, the launch window includes titles hitting within about a month of PS Vita’s launch

I'm thinking Rayman Origins and ModNation Racers for me.

Edit: Memory card prices are still insulting.

Interested in these for launch titles. Certainly has been awhile since I've been interested in more than 3 games for launch. I still don't know about getting it day one though.

Lumines and Wipeout for me. 32 gig for $100 and maybe the starter pack to get the case, film cloth, headphones and all the other stuff. Guess I'll just throw the 4 gig out the window.

Not happy about $49.99 Vita games. Could be Uncharted, but it might be 3rd parties trying to extract more money. Good luck to every 50 dollar Vita game.

Excited about seeing one of these in person, hopefully display/demo models go up eventually.

I don't think I'm diving in at launch, but I know I'll be getting one eventually. Try as I may I couldn't ignore the PSP's allure for long.

I figure around the first price drop is where I'll grab one. That's what I did with the PSP anyway. (And got a free game out of it as well!)

Presumably it, Resistance, and Sound Shapes are coming past the "launch window".
Gotcha. I thought it was a launch title but in researching through the GOOGLE, it wasn't confirmed for launch or even near launch.

Why is Ridge Racer a launch window game? I hope they are improving it
Wasn't the DLC in Japan planned through April? Maybe they're including all the DLC on the US release? I'd be down for that, I wouldn't hate myself for buying it at least!

Hmm. I guess my launch list would be an 8 GB memory card, Uncharted, Hot Shots Golf, Lumines, and maybe WipEout. If at least 3 of those are $30 games, I will buy all 4. I won't buy Uncharted if it's $50. No way.

I'll probably pick up UMvC3 and Army Corps of Hell at some point later.

$100 is too much for 32 for me. I may just grab the 8 gig for a few PSN downloads and saves and then just gamefly some launch games to have a few things to play.

Today we’re happy to bring you a couple of pieces of PS Vita news, starting with confirmation that your PlayStation Vita will come bundled with six AR Play Cards and a voucher code to download three AR games, all for free. Those games are called Table Football Cliff Diving and Fireworks.
Nice

RE is $50 on 3DS (the newest one). I think a game may be $50 if its production rivals an HD console game (which are already expensive to make).

Wheres LPB?

Getting:
Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational
ModNation Racers: Road Trip
UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss
Blazblue: Continuum Shift EXTEND
Lumines Electronic Symphony
That was never a launch game. I think we'll see it in Fall 2012.

I'm getting:
Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational
Little Deviants (comes with the first edition)
ModNation Racers: Road Trip
UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss
Wipeout 2048

Army Corps of Hell (Due to good impressions I heard from Japan)
Blazblue: Continuum Shift EXTEND
Dynasty Warriors Next
Lumines Electronic Symphony
Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen
Touch My Katamari
Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3

I'll grab some PSN games too. Can't wait. :D

No Ultimate Mahvel!? Edit: I'm blind.

Also, these games need to be released on the 15th and not the 22nd.

No Lord of Apocalypse?

Probably just Shinobido 2 for me and then Gravity Rush day 1 whenever that is. I'll be using the Vita to catch up on some PSP games at first
