Sony announced a Vita slim, if you will, for the Japan market (no word on a US release just yet). The Vita will undergo some cosmetic changes that make the hand-held lighter. One of those changes is replacing the Vita’s gorgeous OLED screen with an LCD screen. Videos have emerged comparing the two screens and I have to say, I did not like what I see. There was a slight loss in clarity on the new LCD screen, and it appeared to look a little washed-out compared to the OLED model.
So with that being said, I decided to go out and buy an OLED model Vita before they potentially disappear from the shelves and/or increase in price due to possible rarity.
I’ve also picked up a 3 games so far: Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational, and Touch My Katamari. I’ve also downloaded a bunch of free games thanks to my PlayStation Plus membership and purchased a few PSP and PSone games on top of that.
It’s a great system so far. I’ve really enjoyed the games on it as well as being able to watch Netflix and other various activities. Now I just need to get more games!
Now that I’m a home owner, I have a proper office/man cave/Room of Doom! That being said, I’m long overdue for some new office furniture. I guess a quick trip to Ikea would fix that little problem. There’s way too much wood grain in my office for my liking. For now, I’ll just have to make do with what I’ve got.
Speaking of which, here’s a picture of my current retro console setup! On the top shelf I’ve got a Gamecube, PS2 Slimline, Wii, a Japanese PS2, and a Dreamcast. On the bottom shelf is a Japanese Saturn, a modified original Xbox and a JVC X’Eye. On the floor are my PC Engine DUO RX and Super Famicom. Barely in frame on the left is a Super Nintendo!
Sooo…I finally bought a PlayStation 3! This past Saturday, I picked up the God of War Ascension Legacy Bundle which includes six God of War games, a really pretty red PS3 system and a free month of PlayStation Plus! Along with that, I snagged a bluray remote, an extra controller, and a bluetooth headset. I also grabbed a copy of Starhawk, which was only $9.99 brand new!
I have since added more games to the collection, having purchased another six or seven games, plus two Japanese imports (via Ebay).
Now, I have been asked why did I pick up a PlayStation 3 when the PlayStation 4 will be out in 8 months? Honestly, I want the PS3 exclusive games and reports are out that the PS4 will not play PS3 games. And I’m a collector and that bug is hard to shake!
Oh, I almost forgot! My PSN ID is xDAMARAMU! Feel free to add me to your friends list!
