PS Vita Hatsune Miku Limited Edition is a beautiful handheld console to own it…
Sony announced in mid-August 2012 that they’re going to release PS Vita Hatsune Miku Limited Edition, the overall design will pretty much copy Hatsune Miku’s appearance thus putting it in a crystal white PSV giving a holographic graphic and feel, they also add its new game Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA ƒ into the limited edition package. In addition to its release, they made two versions of the package: one is for Wifi only model and 3G/Wifi model.
Items inside the package is pretty much the same as the common PSV boxes however there are some other items too such as: game manual in Japanese with 4gb PSV memory card, an in-game VR Card — it is pretty much the same as the design on the back… only much 3D-er, screen protector / Miku front decal — it differs based on release version… I got the first release which it much more better than the other releases, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA ƒ game and lastly the PSV console itself.
The first very expensive limited edition that I have bought… and it will be the last
I saw this article in a very obscure Japanese website where they were talking about this specific Limited Edition, I was reconsidering to pre-order and I was planning to buy a PSV for my birthday, why not get an item that I will cherish and cry at the same time because of how expensive the item. I have been a Project Diva fan for a long time now and it started when I tried playing all the older version on Playstation Portable on the same year: -Project DIVA-, -Project DIVA- 2nd and -Project DIVA- Extend, personally I like the first and second -Project DIVA- releases.
Upon checking for website who handles pre-ordering with the help of my close friend, he stumble upon a website that still offers pre-orders for the PSV Limited edition. As I can remember it cost $500 before with included shipping and custom fee all in all — luckily that online shop knows our government double charge everything, they labelled the entire package as Personal/Used item , Shipping and Customs paid thus paying the same amount. I complete the payment when I was in Singapore, I have to transfer fund to pay it.
I got the news from my friend that he got the package around early September with horrible news when it reaches the customs office, some custom officer forgot how stickers/screen protector/decals doesn’t re-stick once it got remove and decide to peel the front decal — thinking there will be more inside. My friend told me that news which the delivery guy told the horrifying story, both of them was angry and at the same time worried since the sticker got dirty; After he gave me the package, I immediately bought a box cutter and some scotch tape, cut the touchscreen part of the Miku decal, dab/clean the dusty part using the tape to the sticker which it also help get the sticker… sticky and put the decal to the console — with easy to replace screen protector.
Here’s a very close-up photo on the screen. I know I’m not a very good cutter before but I have to save the decals.
Honestly, She’s still pretty looks good, after 5 years of heavy gaming
I’m very surprised now that up to this day, my Miku Vita still pretty looks good after playing button smashing games like Project Diva series, Oboro Muramasa: Rebirth and BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend. It even surpass my Nyko Power Grip’s battery that lasts for 2 years due to heavy usage too. I don’t know if this is the time that I have to find a new Vita console and let the Miku Vita put to rest but then again it is kinda wasteful if you let a console gather dust than getting battle damage.
