Watch As A PS Vita Boots Up For The First Time

Today the PS Vita went on sale Japan. One also arrived at my house! And in this video, I fire it up for the first time.

The PS Vita, Sony's successor to the PlayStation Portable, will launch in the in the US and Europe on February 22, 2012. In Australia, we'll get the machine on February 23.

Be sure to check back for Kotaku's PS Vita review.


    Why I like Kotaku - You use YouTube for videos, not a shitty proprietary players that doesn't work have the time #LookingatyouIGN.

      Oh god, I'm so sorry for my grammar.

    I can't wait to get a Vita...

    the music at startup sounds kinda annoying

      Not like you cant mute it

    Slow news eh,
    unboxing a vita
    What size memory card
    Here's a guy using one
    Now this...really?

      WTF? It's the weekend and some brand new hardware is released, are you suggesting they simply ignore it?

      It beats having nothing new. Hell if there was nothing to complain about many people would be lost.

    Looks pretty cool, but what's with the swipe thing at the beginning? It seems kinda pointless (or as though Sony is screaming "hey look, it has a touch screen, impressed?")

      That might have just been a first-boot thing, as a way to make sure the user realises that they'll need to interact with it as a touch screen device during setup.

    This comment has been reported for inappropriate content and is awaiting review.

      Yeah it's been mentioned before.

      I would say that this was six minutes of my life that i'll never get back, but I only watched the video for about ten secionds before realising how pointless and stupid it was.

      Seriously. Fuck you Brian Ashcraft, you are a hack journalist and everything you post is garbage

    Ooo, make sure you suss out the remote play for the review.
    I'd like to know if it supports all games, and if it can be used when you're away from your home & if it can be used through 3G.

    "Let's see, how do I set the date, how do I set it? *click* *tap* *tap*"

      haha, I was thinking the same thing. :)

      Ah, so I wasn't the only one that Instantly knew how that worked.

        I think we all did. Twas quite painful to watch that harsh and relentless tapping

    Oh god, what a long-winded setup... I wonder if you can just use the dpad to scroll the menu, touchscreen controls for the sake of it are such a slow way of inputting data.

    You chose English US and not UK? Have you gone mad!?!?

    Oh gosh I was so frustrated with you going 'how do you set the date'... hasn't this guy used an iphone before? >_>
