    I wish they’d launch it in PH this fall 2011, I’d be one of the firsts to grab it :)

  2. Fleeb says:

    Can’t wait for the PSP Vita Slim!

  3. Messie says:

    such an attractive price at $249! But does it really need to come with a fugly name? It sounds a lot like food supplements/vitamins. haha

  4. Messie says:

    Sorry for the double post, but I have to commend Sony, alongside this announcement, they also announced a $500 pricing for a PS3 + 24″ 3D TV combo which features an enhanced 3D gaming experience. Besides the usual 3D eye popping graphics, it also solves the problem of Split Screen peeking! If the two players are wearing 3D glasses, they will only see their side of the vid. Awesome!

    grabe ang mura kahit ung hardware high-end na! mas mura pa sa PSP 3000 nung release hahah. QUAD CORE PA!

  6. dan says:

    yep, sweet spot price. bang for the buck ika nga, mga ISO makers do ur magic now. i’m sure paglabas ng pirated games jack up na price nito kaya mga gamers jan, ready your 15k paglabas nito sa pasko

  7. Maapag-ipon na nga ^^

  8. Dan MD says:

    Like, want it, will (probably) buy it! Let’s hope that it will also be supported by game developers. I wish they went for the overkill and included a camera w/ HD. Perhaps this will come in the second version.

  9. JM says:

    Mga tao hack agad ang hinihintay.. Kung walang hack ang PSP walang bibili sa inyo. Ako may hack man o wala willing ako mag spend ng pera para sa new techs. Hay. At isa pa, hindi na ito PSP. PSVita na yan. Wala na ang Portable na name.

  10. chi says:

    i want! buti na lang di ko pa napapalitan psp phat ko… kaso i will still wait for the review.. sa high tech specs nya, parang madaling maubos ang batt.. hhmmm…

  11. JM says:

    2-3 hours of gaming siguro chi. :D

  12. lawrence says:

    grabe ang mura!! I remember buying psp grandfather for almost 12k++ now x4 ang improvement sa speed and specs, sobrang upgrade.. and now with 3g variant?? damn!!! sana makatext and call yung 3g, so no need for the stupid xperia play (which I doubt of course)

  13. justin says:

    already reserved my money for this baby. killer price killer specs. hope sony lower game prices. i really don’t like hacks they do a lot of damage in the long run. lets give developers what they deserve in compensation, in return we get better quality of games.

  14. x says:

    im confused with the official name.. is it PSP Vita? or PS Vita??? i know its portable, but i think it should be PS Vita.. but anyways, inde pa din naman catchy ang Vita.. so siguro same lang din.. :D

  15. paulkev09 says:

    this will surely kill the sony ericsson xperia play…

  16. clangclang says:

    Sa tingin niyo po will it cost higher than the target release price (US$249-299) pag narelease na siya dito sa Pilipinas as there could be several factors that will affect its cost such as tariffs and local tax? If so, I assume it will cost no less than P20,000 but I still hope it will cost less :D… Just my 2 cents ^_^

  17. Carlo says:

    PSVita. Parang pagkain o vitamins lang. O_O

    Nintendo had a more exciting product announcement imo.

    • sylv3rblade says:

      I’m excited to play the Zelda game the we’re showing with the Wii U’s controller. Kaso mukhang tech demo :/

    • I agree, but that’s for the Nintendo Wii U. This is for the handheld which competes with the Nintendo 3DS. I’m a 3DS owner right now and I’m kind of worried of its future… Nevertheless, 3D gaming is cool on the 3DS. I’m no purist though, so I’m also looking forward to the PS Vita Release.

    • HUH says:

      vita means life ^_^

  18. friend.com.ph says:

    this new psp has great features and specs but still very cheap… I hope this will be available on December.

  19. garapal_ang_sony_ph says:

    Sa Sony Ph, malamang overpriced yan at alam nyo naman ang sony ph ay di sila sumusunod pagdating sa presyo.

  20. Rey says:

    So which has better graphics, PSVita or Nintendo 3DS?

    Please answer my question. :)

  21. skyflakes_18 says:

    Yari na naman 13th moth ko d2! Sana pumayag si misis. ^_^

  22. PSP Addict says:

    Walanghiya, kakabili ko lang ng PSP ko. Hindi pa ako nagsasawa meron ng bago. :( Argghhh!

  23. Ads says:

    Finally a product worthy of grabbing our attention away from iPhone, Android iPads, tablets.. even for a while. i will wait for this and buy

  24. giancarlo says:

    Kulang yata ng zero sirs.

  25. boy_fanboy says:

    i want metal gear solid 4 to be released on this console…konami made it possible to release a metal gear solid game on the psp before and i think it is possible to have a portable version of mgs4.

  26. Edwin C says:

    Price ng unit pa lang ‘yan. Papano ‘yung prices ng games? Kaya mo bang bumili ng bagong games every month, eh, ‘yun ngang PSP mo hacked. Iyung NDS mo, bumibili ka ba ng games or download lang? Huwag ka nang mangarap baka di mo kaya kung hinde ma-hack ang PS Vita. Baka hanggang one game ka lang. Of course,’yung mga sarap buhay dito wag na kayong magyabang na kaya n’yo.

    • If you really liked the game then you should support it. Most people just hoard games, ilan lang naman talaga ang nilalaro natin palagi at tinatapos diba? When you choose to use pirated software, chances are you’ll be seeing less and less good games from that developer and if you do, it will take a very, very long time.

      Piracy also results into faster change in technology, which can be good or bad to some.

      So, understanding the economic situation here in the Philippines… If you got a game that you really, really like… Then buy an original copy. Pwede naman pag-ipunan yan.

      As a 3DS owner, halos 2k pesos ang isang game… Then I only need to save about 65 pesos a day for one month in order to buy a new game. Kayang-kaya diba?

    • boy_fanboy says:

      I agree with you. Piracy causes some companies to make another new console. Sony made PS Vita not just to showcase some new features, but also to alleviate the piracy problems that plagued the PSP. I am willing to buy genuine games since I can save Php. 100.00 a day!

    • It also increases the price of games!

    • clangclang says:

      hindi lang naman po games ang function nito.. para san pa yung 3G + WiFi.. It could also be an alternative for the iPads/Android tabs out there :D

  27. sana ma-hacked agad to para pwede na lagyan ng games for free…

  28. Dhen X says:

    SANA MARELEASE NA AGAD YAN D2 SA PINAS!

  29. longskie says:

  30. alexv says:

    • helllo says:

      woooooohh… review review ka pang nalalaman diyan… sabihin mo hintay ka lang ma jack sparrow yung mga games… para tuloy ang saya… pero tama, wait muna tayo reviews baka me glitches nga or problems… smart buyer tayo eh… (wink;wink)

  31. Kira says:

    Hmm… I cant see any price drop yet for the predecessors.

  32. BiriBiri says:

    All set na ko!! Lumabas ka na dito sa pinas!! Sana pede God Eater, Monster Hunter sa Vita!!

  33. HUH says:

    Ang mura kaso pano kaya yung mga games magkano kaya kada isang games ^^

  34. BOYTambay says:

      may IDEA ka poh ba??

  37. Crisostomo says:

    PSP Vita ala syang UMD drive pero meron syang slots para sa mga game cards called NVG Cards. New format sya ng gamecard much like sa NDS.

    Yung mga mahihilig sumakay sa barko ni Jack Sparrow ha please lang itigil nyo na lang yan. Hehehehe

    Sulit lang ang price nyan for 13k+ para sa 3g+Wifi kesa naman sa iphone which is so pricey and meron pang glitches. But to sum it all i’ll be buyin this one when it comes out the store this xmas.

  38. kenneth says:

    sure na ba na mga 13k un price nya, un my 3g?? does it mean na dineclare na un price which is 299$ will be sold here in the philippines with the same price o mas tataasan here?? base on ur experience sa mga gadgets b4, pag dinedeclre ba un price same amount din un benta d2 sa philippines?? hope i get an answer..tnx in advance..

  39. FGGMA says:

    sana may tekken tag 2 dito sa console na ito!!

  40. ichiketo says:

  41. pet says:

    wag kayo bumuli ng 3g version panget at&t wifi nalang chaka bumuli kayo ng games hindi ung pina- pirate kasi ung mga developers nalulugi kawawa naman hindi na gagawa ng mga games.

  42. alex says:

    i wish it could run psp games? ([email protected])

  43. digoy says:

    for now only japanese games?
    if only sony knows how to manage their gadgets hindi sila malulugi, sana makita nila ung method ng apple in using itunes, for example ako, i have an ipod lahat ng games and apps binibili ko kasi karamihan $1 lng, so sana un ang matutuhan ng sony, kikita na sila maiiwasan pa nila ang pag papirate

    • rancyd says:

      dont worry, there will be both digital and physical copies of the game. i just hope since walang gagastusing material for the digital copy eh mas mura. also i dont think they would be selling a game for $1 each haha, kawawa naman yung mga developers at designers na hindi natulog para maperfect yung magagandang HD graphics :D

  44. rancyd says:

    so waiting for vocaloid games on this one! might get it for xmas next year! :D

  45. Keso says:

    PS Come’s with a downloadable Digital games from Sony Store, This will work without UMDs. It is much cheaper in comparison to UMD runned games. This will perfectly HIT Philippine gamers.

  46. dhel says:

    alin maganda ung nentindo 3ds o ito ps vita? nu tngin nyo?

  47. bakayarou says:

    psp vita 11,000?? are you kidding me?? a newly released handheld console with latest touchscreen tech at that price??

    eh yung psp portable nga eh mga 10,000 yung latest price as of december… expect the price of ps pvita to be around 20,000+ and up…

    yung mga games… expect it to be around 1500 and up… naloka ako sa reviewer na ito…

    straighten up your facts! amateur!

    • zaigen says:

      w8 lang kau after 6 months. bababayan ung price nyan:) alam nyona dito sa pinas pag-bago mahal dont forget ang gadgets mablis mag depreciate ang value hehehe. kaya intay lang sa kapos ung budget mag tiyaga muna sa psp 3000 hehehe…

    • MT4 says:

      I know u used
      Google and searched
      1usd to PHP
      Dont lie i know what u do!

  48. ingkong says:

    @bskayarou bobo neto basis ni abe ay price sa US since di pa nare-release dito sa pinas, wala naman sinabi dyan yan ung price dito sa philippines…sino amatuer?….basa muna bago comment

  49. brandon says:

    The price itself is really cheap but considering the ps3 in the us is 249(160GB 11k).

    But according to my instincts since this is the philippine (almost everything has vat) the console itself will range from 13k-20K .

    Datablitz being the cheapest -13k
    Itech- 14k
    Toy Kingdom – 18K+
    Sony.com.ph – 16K.

    this is only a THEORY.

    @bakayarou – base price muna + vat= PRICE HERE IN THE PH.

    ISIP ISIP MUNA.

  50. dafuq says:

    bababa pa yang price ng ps vita at para dun sa nag sabe na amateur yung nag gawa ng assumption ng price bakit di ka mag gawa ng sarili mong blog.

  51. luisITO says:

    11k and 13k ang ps vita dalawang class kasi yun e!

  52. renz says:

    lol yung psp 3000 sa amin umabot nalang ng 7.5k
    at yung 3rds 9k kaya posibleng maging 11k to kasi ng cocompete sa 3rds sa sales

  53. Anne says:
