    Enthusiast equipment finds a way.

    An OLED PS Vita. It's in immaculate condition with only the tiniest of visible scuffs on the rear touchpad. The screen is just smudged in the picture and will clean up with a lint-free cloth.

    Nice. Any specific games you plan to buy?

    I already have a bunch because I've been using a PSTV, which I'll be putting up for sale soon. The OLED screen is absolutely gorgeous, especially when playing colorful games like the Danganronpa franchise.

    I still regret selling my OLED Vita, but the screen used on the LCD model isn't too bad either. I currently have an aqua blue Japanese model Vita.

    I used to have an LED Vita, and it certainly wasn't bad. I almost pulled the trigger on a Japanese Danganronpa V3 limited-edition console but couldn't bring myself to spend the $300+. I'm much happier with this US-spec OLED model.

    I actually got my Vita from a US based seller for $200 brand new. Using circle to advance through menus instead of X takes some getting used to, especially when it switches to X to advance once you're in game. That aside, it's definitely an awesome system. I just wish that the memory cards for the Vita weren't so damned expensive. While on the subject of handheld game systems, I'm actually considering trying to buy a PSPgo, since it has 16GB internal storage, which is definitely better than the 8GB MemoryStick Duo that I currently have in my PSP.

    While I’ve never been much of a console gamer, the Vita is one of the most underrated systems of all time. It probably would have done better if not for the price of the memory cards. I’m hoping someone eventually perfects an SD adapter that works on all firmware versions.

    I also owned a PSPGo for a time. It was a good system to have when I was traveling regularly for work.

    Audio equipment is a bit different comparing to PC gear, though.
    An amp or a pair of headphones bought ten or so years ago will still function properly (considering nothing is broken), whereas a ten year old CPU or GPU might will have some performance issues due to age or modern software limitations.

    Preorded the SNES version of the New Nindendo 3DS XL (they need to come up with a better name for this...).
