Yea it is. It's getting hard to even find the system. Just found out that my area Toys R Us might not be even carrying them in store much longer due to the lack of people buying them Smiley Sad. It's a shame, since it seems to be a good system. The only real drawback (from what I can tell) is due to the memory card prices. No wonder why people aren't getting them as much. They're pretty expensive.

I think there's already a pack like that out in the EU the +8 +plus.
Anyways, apparently the conference isn't going to be live streamed an it's following CET.....so... by sometime in thursday we should know sony's plans for the system.


Did they really stop selling them? Or and they just clearing out their old stock? ---for the new model- this happens with apple products as well.

Gamestop......

They're no longer selling it online- and their stores all have *Low Stock in my area- but still, Gamestop.....

I just watched an IGN "teaser?" video and Tearaway looked awful on it- the colors were not one bit vibrant. Seemed so dull. Smiley Indifferent

Vita 2000 was made to cut costs... It's a cheaper version.

So they added features like colors, 1GB internal, and bigger buttons so it could sell.

Vita 1000 is still better but I'm very OCD about these burn ins and it sort of gave me ADHD.

I always seem to move and fidget now or else "being still isn't good" implying my screen being still would give a burn in.

I'm so stupid.

The 1GB is beyond useless though- the patches alone will that up instantly...not to mention the fact that you can't even access it when you're using a memory card.
My Vita suffered from burn-ins when playing LBP's create mode- but it would disappear afterwards- or at least become unnoticeable.

Oh well...I still have time to decide though. It's not even Wednesday yet.

Burn ins aren't temporary. They last until your display fizzles out

What exactly do the burn ins look like? Are those the black spots that I sometimes see on the display? They seem to go away and I haven't seen them in a while but I sometimes noticed those when playing AC3 Liberation.

On brighter colors they don't show up but dark colors like raining clouds, they will show up.

If you google stormclouds on your vita, save image and look at the top.
