    I don't think the listing says PS Vita anywhere in the listing.

    That knockoff does have something the Vita does not though. A/V out!

    Also, the worlds "trampoline" and "curling" should be switched in the game pictures. :)

    You are correct. Reading isn't my thing at times :p

    I did scroll down and look at the games, they look like Wii games on an old TV...

    I don't know what the status of this were yesterday but the title as of now even in your initial link clearly says "New 4.3" Sensor Sport Game MP3 MP4 MP5 Player 720P PSP TV OUT Wireless Controler"

    Now if it were "PS VITA Brand New In Box with manufacturers seal" Then it would be very fishy indeed!

    Its not a fake Vita unless they are trying to say its a Vita, but they arent. :)

    So you should change the thread to "someone trying to sell a portable media player that looks like a PS Vita."

    If it could emulate a crapload of systems, I would get one.

    Plastic molds are very expensive. If someone were to start out to make copies of the Vita, they would have at least a $100k in just getting the molds cut for the shell, buttons, and slot covers.

    That practically guarantees that they are buying the molded components from one of the children in the Chinese sweat shops that is contracted to make them for Sony. The plastic components probably only cost the a couple dollars. Throw in a cheap LCD screen and a couple dollars worth of mass produced chips, pay a double-amputee ex-prostitute in Cambodia to wire it all together, and you probably have a pretty decent potable media player. No Vita, but hey...

    The real question is whether or not Sony knows that someone is pimping their plastics supplier. I bet they'd have something to say about that.

    That wasn't a burn, man. Just saying your gammy is good with a soldering iron. And I'm just glad to see that she bounced back and found a new career after that tragic train of Chechen soldiers.

    That she is... world reknown for her soldering iLLskiLLZ.... she can suck an old solder bead through the gap in her front teeth.

    The whole family are jumping for joy that she bounced back from her horrific ordeal..We did actually start to notice her soldering was on the decline and was the only thing starting to suffer. Before the coucilling you could notice the nervous ticks ..But after councilling she managed to fix my broken Alpine car stereo.

    So it's all GOOD
