Same as the PSP, really... except that Sony has decided to go proprietary format (dickhead move, IMO).

Amazon, seriously. Picked up 3 launch titles for $111 including shipping; admittedly it was a "buy 2 get 1 free" deal, but even so, saved $50. Games are typically in the $30-$40 range (Uncharted is the only one at $50), which is a good $20 saving off Aussie prices... even adding $10 shipping per title, you're saving good cash.

I don't know where that number is coming from?
PS Vita (wifi): $348
8GB mem card: $43
3 games (see above): $111
TOTAL = $511
That's a *long* way off $700.
