    It looks great, but it’s a PSVita… I suppose I could get it for all the games I missed.

    Finally a new model in Japan to make HW sales spike for a week or two. That thing looks sexy even if it’s a Model 2~.

    Looks awesome. I hope it suggests more DQ games on the system other than Builders.

    If that’s the original design, is that the OLED screen then? My my, that’s pretty tempting.

    I’d seriously consider this if it came with an English version of the game. Still waiting on a good price for a Vita or a decent bundle. Goddamn Lego games stay away from my consoles!

    Unfortunately, all the good bundles [outside of Japan] are in Europe. The only decent bundle, if you can find it, is the Borderlands 2 one which if I recall correctly came with an 8 GB memcard~.

    Dragon Quest Builders do look good though. Way better than minecraft. imo.

    “original” in the sense of new/fresh, not “old”, it’s just a poor word selection when translating:
    ※メタルスライム オリジナルデザイン

    オリジナル in Japanese usually means a unique or custom or one-of-a-kind.

    Anyway, the PCH-2000 designation means it’s the new form factor with a LCD screen.

    I wish you could buy it without the game so I can buy it digitally. I came from the PC world into consoles and quickly learned to hate the throw back to having to use not-so-floppy disks. :/

    Guess I should amend my sentence with “also all bad games stay away from console bundles please”.
