    Ps Vita - beginners guide

    Looking to eventually pick up a Vita.

    What are the pitfalls?

    OLED vs LCD opinions?

    What should I be looking for and at what price?

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    If you want to use homebrew you need to buy one with firmware 3.60-3.68 do not get 3.69. If you do manage to get one make sure to disable updates.
    OLED=SSome people prefer this screen which I believe were in the Fats PCH-1000
    LED=Better battery life version PCH-2000 slim I got one of these 6 months ago and very happy with it.

    So many great games on the system and Persona 4 is a must have.

    Great piece of hardware with a beautiful screen. I have the OLED, some people say the contrast is slightly off but it looks great to me. Not really many exclusive games other than Persona 4, but quite a few solid ports including some good little indie games. Killzone Mercenary is the other big exclusive which is good. Never found the PSP emulation to be great due to the aspect ratio, but the PS1 emulation is excellent. Haven't really explored the homebrew side.

    I love my Vita. Oled version. With the little guy is the most gaming I do at the moment and I missed a lot of ps2/3 greats so catching up on those has been fun.

    What price range is fair for the OLED and LCD variants?

    Is the Sony store still accessible via the Vita?

    Are Japanese Vitas a reasonable endeavor?

    Is there any advantages to going for a 3g version?

    Jap consoles access the Playstation vita digital store in Japanese I've heard?

    Does anyone know if the Vita digital "store" is still operating?
