The first thing I noticed was how big the screen was. I knew it was only a little bit bigger than the original PSP's screen but once you see it you'll be amazed. Some websites say that the Vita weighs very light. When I grasped the Vita when my hands, I found that unit itself feels very solid and not cheap like the original PSPs. I also didn't expect how very little resistance the analog sticks were when you push on it. However, it's not a bad thing and I find it quite easy to use.
When you took the Vita out of the box, what were your impressions of it?
