Is there a reason why it’s unreliable?

Is it better to buy the OG Vita or Vita Slim at this point?
No idea. Like I say, mine have been reliable, I've just heard a lot of reports of them failing for other people.

I much, much, much prefer the slim. It's difficult to get charging cables that actually work for the OLED at this point.

I'm seriously debating selling my OLED now and buying a new slim from Japan before they become impossible to buy new.

Are they cheaper to buy from Japan?

Neither. I'm pretty sure it was a question if the LCD model is cheaper to buy new from Japan. I don't know for sure, but I imagine that's indeed the case, what with hardware production (including the slim) having been halted so long ago outside Japan.
Yeah, I was referring to the Vita models. And is it hard switching the language on the Japanese models? I’ve seen a bunch of them on Amazon

When you first set up your Vita you can choose the language and log in using whatever region your account is set up in - it's very easy.

The only thing that will be different is that the circle and x buttons are switched at system level (meaning that when you're on the home screen, you'll have to select things with o)

Why does it have to be that way?? >_<

It's something that I thought would be annoying too but you actually get used to it very, very quickly. 99% of Vita's actual games will play with the inputs the way you're used to, it's just the menus that take a little getting used to.

Wrote about rhythm games on Vita this week, for anyone interested. Tonnes more than I thought!

Btw, about the conversation above - I paid about £180 with import fees for my Vita from Amazon.jp last year, so that does seem to be the going rate.
Awesome list. I realise that I pretty much own every one of those games including the VA/music hybrid games! DJMax will always be my favourite of the bunch though, such an awesome game and track list. So annoying that I'm two trophies away from the plat :(

Wow, brave man. Have you tried any of the VN rhythm games? Are any of them any good?

I've played through Bakumatsu Ultra Soul and quite enjoyed the songs. I'm one song away from the plat on that game but its a bastard to get the target rank on the hardest difficulty. I might try again one day as I'm so close!

I want my dollar back.
Buyer beware. No refunds.

On a separate note, I've been playing some of my backlogged Vita games. Dynasty Warrior 8 XL CE runs at a solid 30 fps when you overclock the Vita. It's real fun!

Edit: Who was able to snag the Iconoclasts Vita copy?

So I just installed h-encore and Henkaku on my Vita for Homebrew.

Does anyone know if I can still safely connect to the PS Store to download my digital titles? I've gone into the Henkaku settings and enabled PSN Spoofing and set the Spoofed version to 3.70, but I don't want to try connecting to the PS Store to download and end up with my account banned as that will screw me over on PS4.

I’ve been doing exactly this for 18 months and haven’t run into any trouble.

You can never swear this will never bite you in the ass, but Sony don’t seem to care too much.

Thanks. I've homebrewed mainly to use an SD2Vita adapter so was hoping I could re-download my digital library to it.

Got it for a reasonable price?
yep, $120 for both which seems like a great deal! if you scroll down on the ebay link you can see pics. i dont think the seller knew much about video games and just priced it whatever, probably didn't even turn on the vita.
