This news just made my day, I really want to get it on Feb 15, but I want a 8GB memory stick, not a 4GB, guess that I'll have to wait until the 22nd :(

Cool!

I was wondering about the lack of a Maps application even though you need to accept some Google maps terms and conditions agreement!

Sadly, the WiFi version i have lacks the GPS reciever only with the 3G version you will get it!

Video recording would be nice too, hope they add the option of recording 120FPS videos (slow-motion) as I read somewhere that the Vita supports this mode!

And I truly hope they open the US/Euro stores, its getting boring...
