Really good price, but still not enough game/supports for it.
I think I'll wait for it to drop below $100, or wait for a new revision (if there ever is one).
Btw, I noticed the demo models in store all have the back rubber coating scratched up pretty bad. Is that common even with home use?
Not enough games?? Nearly every digital PSP title, PS 1 classics, Minis, PSN mobile games, almost all of which are superior to smartphone versions(ever played age of zombies on your smartphone--contrast it with the PSP version). like clunky control?
In addition, PS Vita titles, PS plus subscription instant game collection cause a problem..not enough time to play all the top shelf titles...
Your argument could be hardware related or memory card related; however the "not enough games" argument is absolutely FALSE>> peace, love
I have always favored sony, but I recently sold my one year old vita. I've only played two games, uncharted and Marvel vs capcom 3 as all the rest I have no interest. There is just not enough games support for the vita. 2 weeks ago I picked up a 3DS XL and I have stop playing my ps3. I have been playing Super Street Fighter 4, Resident Evil and Contra 4, and ordered Castlevania, so many selections for me to play.
So so but taxes kills it. As an owner of the legacy PSP its insulting that you can't play the games you bought without buying them again. Sony is failing miserably. Not many exclusives and ports that are below the quality of their competitors and off course little to no DLC. Proof is in the playroom where the Xbox gets more attention than the PS3.

I think that's the problem. They are indeed better than smartphone games, but they still don't compare to what Nintendo has to offer. Also, serious gamers have already played all the "classic" PS/PSP games you mentioned, hence the "not enough games" argument. I own a PS3, 360, Wii, DS, PSP, and droid phone, and I game on all, so I'm not biased.
Back to the topic though, this is a pretty good price for a Vita. Though, I bought my PSP at $100, and I doubt I got "$100 worth of entertainment" from it. Sony needs to step up and release more/better exclusive titles -- GoW, Uncharted, Resistance and Killzone is not enough.
It's not 40:1, but there are 23.5 3DS systems sold for every PSVita in Japan and additionally the PSP is selling almost 3 times as much as the Vita in Japan.
Contrast that to the US where it appears to be closer to a 3:1 margin and you can see it's doing a little better here. The only time it even came close to the 3DS in sales (1.8:1) was when the price was dropped to $199 for Black Friday, and the 3DS had no real special sales. However, it did go right back to the 3:1 sales for the rest of the month available.

That's actually better than I expected. Gives me hope.

Exactly. They probably sold more Vitas with that amazing Amazon BF deal in 24 hours than they sold in the 5 months before. A better price will get more Vitas in people's hands which will entice more developers to make great games which will get more Vitas in people's hands which will...
The Dreamcast was a good system too.
I don't think that's a good comparison. Sony has resources Sega could only have dreamed of. The PS3 started out really slow too (599 US Dollars, Giant Enemy Crab, Riiiidge Racer) but they stuck with it and it flourished. The same can happen with the Vita.
