Get a first gen ps3. Full ps2 backwards compatibility, full psn functionality, all ps3 titles function fine on it. Best of the ps2 and ps3 together.

Good luck finding one that still works...

Now I'm leaning towards Vita, PC, or status quo (which is PC/3DS, etc)

I'm sure it isn't hard to find one that works, but you are just playing Russian Roulette every time you start up the system at this point. I'm on my third original PS3. First one died after five+ years, sent it in to Sony, got a refurbished unit, and then the refurbished one died in under a year. Repeated, and I kind of avoid using the second refurbished because I know it will probably die within a few months if I ever try and use it.

Ok so does anyone want to volunteer what they think is a good price for a "like new" original model Vita?

I'm suddenly beginning to reconsider my stance on the value of mobile devices again....

And don't worry, a couple of months is nothing compared to the 15+ years I've been waiting for the chance to play this in all of its comprehensible glory. And assuming this doesn't pull a Megaman Anniversary Collection GB and vanish into the same aether that swallowed Leisure Suit Larry 4 and the aforementioned, this pretty much cinches the value of purchasing a Vita.

Now only if it were Vita TV compatible.... ;p
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Most new releases are, and I don't see any particular reason why they would go out of their way to make it incompatible.

Under 100 dollars. I'd say 80-90 is reasonable if it's from a store, 70 or less if it's from a less reputable source. Like new means nothing if you have a factory defect that makes it last a year or less, and if you're gonna spend almost the same amount on a like new unit, may as well spend more and buy a new unit. Honestly, new vitas aren't too pricy anyway, i'd spend a little more and buy it new.

TASTY!

^ Wow really? I honestly didn't even know they went that low. I was looking at maybe 130ish and thinking that's pretty good. I'll check into the other options but I think convenience may play a factor (being able to get it from local gamestop).

I just decided I have to have the next Miku Dance game basically and that's been overwriting all other considerations in recent times, and a PS4 would be more expensive for the same thing so..... yeah it's all about the dance games.

^ IMO this is an okay thing to base a console purchase on.

(I mean, I bought that ridiculous $100 season pass for Project Diva 2nd, so...)

I'm referring to the fact that the VitaTV was discontinued. Though I suspect that its still good since the game came out in JP-land around the time of the announcement, but you never know.

Ok yeah I'm definitely out on the PS4, there are a few games I want to play for it but not enough to justify getting it, the Vita is cheaper and only has a few games I really want to play (and some of those were ones for PS4)

Yeah I think the whole major console system thing has me toast, I'm actually almost completely good with just a 3DS to be honest.

So PS4 Neo is a thing, yeah I'm definitely glad I didn't get a PS4 now.

Well now I want a PS4 too because I have committment issues because I just really want FFXV BLERGH game companies why do you tease us and torture us so!

Maybe if I can get a good price...

I'd be a terrible person if I didn't say my ps4 has served me well for the last 3 years almost. There are worse things to get than this for sure, and granted the neo is on the horizon, I think NOT getting a neo immediately is going to be ok. Hell even catching a decent trade back deal right around the launch will help dull the pain a bit.

Plus, you know...deus ex.
