For me, I am getting a Vita although I debated with myself for a good long while about it. I also grabbed the PSP day one but regretted it (if only because there weren't enough games I was interested in for a while). This is often the issue that early adopters have. Either that, or there's only one really good game that you have to stick with until everything else releases.
Still I decided to go with it because I'm a glass half full kind of person. It looks like a stylish system with a great deal of functionality so it will be fun to mess around with. Unlike most people though I'm not going to immediately grab any of the possible "must have" titles. No Uncharted, Little Deviants, or whatever else. My first game will probably be Silent Hill: Book of Memories and I say that with absolutely no shame!
Also, if you're getting a Vita what size memory card are you getting? The cheapest?

Probably gonna end up like my situation with the PSP. Didn't get that until yeeeaaars after it came out. And by then all the good games were nice and cheap

Didn't get a PSP until Fall 2010 when I bought the Black Friday bundle for $130! It came with a PSP 3000, The Karate Kid UMD (the one with Jackie Chan and Will Smith's kid), LittleBigPlanet, and a...4GB Pro Duo card, I believe. But this time I may not wait as long to get one; especially if there are a lot of games I want. The moment a Kingdom Hearts and/or Final Fantasy game drops, I'll be all over it.

I certainly have my eye on the system. though, since stuff like a new Ys and Shin Megami Tensei game has been teased and ports/remakes of games that I legitimately want to play (/replay) like Persona 4, Malicious, DJMax Technika, Trails of Zero remake; there is also some other odd ends I want to play like Gravity Daze, Uncharted, Little Kings Story 2, Ragnarok Odyssey, Hot Shots Golf and...maybe, Ciel no Surge (I know it doesn't have anything to do with Ar Tonelico, but I'm secretly obligated to play it). Of course, for a lot of those it will rely heavily on some brave publishers or me taking the initiative to tune up my 2nd grade Japanese reading...I hope it's the former that happens.
Edit: Totally not interested in Ciel no Surge in the slightest anymore, it is looking more like one of those Love Plus games when I was thinking it would be more like Beyond the Labyrinth (on 3DS) with some Ar Tonelico elements....not the case.

I preordered the 3G Launch Bundle on Amazon for $299.99!

I'm heavily considering that I might think about it. The system looks cool, but I just can't buy things for full price. It hurts me knowing I can get it cheaper if I just wait for used deals to pick up.
If they hadn't announced that bundle I probably would have waited too but it's just too good to pass up.

Well I was trying to win the taco bell contest but that is not working out so I guess I'll have to buy one at some point.
Lockerz has been running some pretty low prices ($245.99 on the 3G Launch Bundle now) if you have enough points that is.
If you want to go that route, you can watch all 9 "Behind the Seams" videos for 300 ptz a piece and have enough for the max discount.

I was just about to snap and get the Lockerz bundle, but i don't think it comes with Little Deviants (I might be wrong). Odds are I'll wait for Gravity Daze to come out before I buy one.
The Little Deviants bundle is different. This one comes with an 8 GB memory card, PSN game and At&t data pass. No announcement on what game or choice of games yet.
