£229 UK PS Vita price 'what we predicted' - Sony

As much as I like the look of it, for me handhelds have died a death. The price is okay but I still cant bring myself to pick one up (or a 3DS for that matter).

Decent price but still don't want to pay that much for it. Don't want to pay that much for any handheld really - I don't really use them enough. PSP was great when I played it and some titles I played loads, but too few. Same for DS. A lot of Pokemon, a bit of Viva Pinata etc.

Good price. But i bet the shops(in the UK)will make you have to spent over £300 for it i.e they will bundle a game with it & you can only buy it with a game etc etc for the 1st few months :-/

If Sony confirm that we'll be able to play our PS3 games using Vita, then I'm going to buy one day 1. And even if they don't, I'd still be tempted at that price because the launch games look fantastic. There's no way I want to miss anything related to Uncharted.

And the fact that the Vita games have their own trophy support, adds that layer of depth to the games that the 3DS lacks, in my opinion.

I will probably buy one tbh, it's the same price range the 3DS launched at, so i expect the supermarkets to go to around £210 for the first week. Can't wait. :D

I'm with you there, I don't question the quality, i just have no interest nowadays for playing games on a small screen unless its for 59p on an iphone while waiting for a train....

Same here, not bothered.

Tbh, at the moment nothing else matters, I just can't get ZeldaHD out of my head atm.

Cant wait to get this. I refuse to play s**t games on my iphone, angry birds and paper toss are a waste of time and money.
PSV will be amazing.

I'll wait for a price drop just as I did with the PSP. Like many others I hardly play hand held games. There is little reason to with my Xbox 360 and PS3 sat there. :wink:

I play my handhelds a lot so I'll be buying the PSV quickly. To be honest, the price is much less than I expected. Frankly the PSV is a steal. Hope to god they release it in 2011!

I have had a Play.com credit card for 10 months earning points specifically to get a Vita and I already have enough to get the wi-fi only one. Can't complain about the price when it's free...
