I am telling everyone to get their hands on a PlayStation Vita before passing judgement. Nothing kills me more than hearing that "it's another PSP." It's not -- it's so much more. My personal mission has had me handing off my own personal unit to what has to be near 100 people now. I've wiped this baby down so many times that I'm surprised that the paint hasn't worn off yet.
Save the wear and tear on my personal system by going to GameStop. The company says that they'll have Sony's newest portable available for play at more than 3,300 of their U.S. stores. Many games will be available for play, including Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational, wipEout: 2048 and Escape Plan.
If their demo unit pushes your buttons, they'll let you trade in your older portables for an extra $25 in trade-in value toward the Vita. Or you can keep them and make a cool system stack like I did (above).
Check here to see if your local store has a Vita open for demoing.
