This is 100% a Brand new product completely sealed in plastic. very well made no manufacturer defects.
The Silver colour is a very nice matte finish looks and feels great.
I got this with an Amazon fulfilment seller on my Prime membership in Australia and it was here overnight.
Brillant service. The only thing you need to get used to is how X and O are mapped, you can change it but it will reverse it in games so it's not a good idea to remap it lol.
I have a 64gb Vita memory card and you get 60gb of usable space which is plenty, I have loaded a couple of psp games from the psn store and ps1 and installed 10 vita games no issues with space at all, if you can't get a 64gb one for any reason I recommend at least 16gb, I wouldn't go any lower than that.
The silver version is very underrated in my opinion, it is by far the less loud and more classy colour giving you that metal look at feel which I love.
Works 100% with the Australian PSN store and will completely work with all Australian PS Vita games online and physical, that was my worry with the PSN store being a problem but it wasn't.
Out of the box it comes with 3.61 firmware for those that want to hack there Vita. I didn't want to do that so I updated to 3.70 :) you will need to do this if you want to access the PSN store, and if you have a backup to restore you will also need to do this so you can use media content restore.
One thing to note if you restore from backup the language will change to Japanese for some reason so you have to remember the settings menu option icon to get back to change it.
also with power plug, you can just use a AU 2 prone cable and plug it into the power brick of the vita so you don't need to have an international plug converter or anything and it's also cheaper to do that.
If you need to read the back of the box or the manuals etc you can use google translate on your phone if has a camera feature that reads the text and does a live translation so it's easy :) You can also just download English version of everything lol.
Other than that I am loving this so far in 2019!! the vita still rocks.
