Thinking of selling my Vita, I have hardly used it since I got it. Just wondering what the going price is for a 2nd hand one nowadays.
Its a 3G, wifi one, Just the vita and a case, oh think I still have the box somewhere as well.

Have you tried the Remote play feature? I hadn't used mine for a while but remote play (although a bit sluggish) gave me a new fondness for the Vita. Plus all the ps+ freebies made it more appealing, mind there won't be many AAA titles coming as it's niche market is indie games.

I still love mine, though I'd love it more if I had something to Remote Play it with! ;)
Seem to mostly play the wee indies on it but really would like to pick up a couple of RPGs.

If I was to sell and leave the games installed on it would they still work with someone else's PSN account or are they account bound?

Pretty sure they won't work unless it's the account that bought them.

Yeah they are account bound so won't work, when they sign in to PSN they won't get the updated verification they get when you sign in.

I would just format the memory card and reset to factory default. I realised the other day when I come to sell mine in the future I only have digital games which will be worthless lol

The PS TV has a Vita slot for the Vita games, sounds good. Was thinking about buying it but for £100 I just don't have the cash.

Love KZ:M probably the best game on the Vita also loved Unit13

Am loving Ys: Memories of Celceta - nice wee hack & slash, RPG affair. If it is still cheap, you should give it a blast @mick

Thank you for all of the suggestions but now the only time I have to play on it is when I am at home and I would rather play on the PS4.

Not currently having much opportunity to play at home myself, so the Vita is perfect for quiet moments at work. If / when I get a PS4, I imagine it will be a similar thing until life settles down!

Very glad to have the Vita close-by, this is my essential gaming tool on tour. I really like Steamworld dig (for free this month), it's very addictive!

Aye, I've sold my PSP but will not sell my Vita even though I don't use it much. It goes with me whenever I go on a trip. Actually with me on its hols in Liverpool!
