And the winner goes to Sony for not only one-upping nintendo, but blowing them out of the water.

I expected a $300 price tage at the least, a $250 is a painful kick to Nintendo and a release this year? Freaking epic, hate the name but still getting it.

We'll just have to wait and see what they've got tomorrow.

I just appreciate Sony and Ninty having competition here. We're going to see some good stuff from the two.

No joke. Gotta hand it to Sony, overlooking AT&T exclusivity and the name (which may just take some getting used to), it looks like they're really pulling this one off.

I wish they had shown some more PS3 stuff, but overall it was a good conference.

Interesting to see how Nintendo does tomorrow in comparison.

This thing is a hybrid of the gaming capabilities of the iPhone mixed with a PSP. It has the tilting, touch screen control of the iPhone along with the classic controls, graphics and developer base of the PSP

Weston, Verizon is getting rid of their unlimited plans this summer. T-Mobile is likely going to be bought out by AT&T. Sprint doesn't have as strong of a network. AT&T is the largest and widespread with good 3G speeds...

Also, I would have much preferred a $200 price point because it would severely undercut the 3DS and push the Vita far ahead from the start instead of starting on "equal" ground. In terms of shear power, I think the PS Vita wins and also in terms of input schemes...and they have cameras to target AR? Sweet. They have thought of everything...for now. Can't wait to try it out!

The Vita is so beautiful! I know a lot of people hate the name but I like it. I was really surprised at the price though i thought for sure it was gonna be $350 ish. 3DS just got served lol. Really loved the uncharted 3 stuff too. Was wishing KB made a return though, oh well =/

Well I can see this being on Rogers in Canada, I hope not though.

By the way, entire audience laughed out loud at AT&T partnership announcement. Pretty hilarious.

Edit: Think most people ended up laughing because of the initial reaction. Then again, SCEA crowd has never been the most professional out of all the keynotes.

RabidChinaGirl I love that haha. After the iPhone business, you'd think companies would be a bit reluctant to lock down their device to AT&T's 3G. But oh well.

To be honest, I'm afraid gaming over 3G could be a bit sketchy anyway. It'll probably be used mostly for the numerous social features of the system.

Great news from Sony and thus, this E3 was truly epic with GOW, UC, Resist and NGP becoming PS Vita.
PS Vita is going to pwn 3DS with that price and over 80 game titles.
Kudos to Sony, Neoseeker and E3.
