Yes, even if that thing is scheduled for release in North America for February 22nd, I received it by mail today. To be very honest with you, I was extremely surprised when I opened the Amazon box because I didn't expect the Vita for another 2 weeks or so. And it's not like I'm some huge gaming website like IGN or GameSpot, I'm a high school teacher and I write a gaming blog (and a basketball blog) to entertain myself.
That said, I'm sure many other people have received it as well. It just feels weird, I feel kinda special to have it now. I don't know if I should feel that way, but I definitely do, and it doesn't hurt anybody.
Obviously I have no game and no memory card, so I haven't been able to do much except the required System Update and type in my PSN account, Bara_Chat.
I'll write some more about it when I have tried a game and/or most features.
Oh, and my GoTY awards are coming very soon, only one or two categories to choose from then it'll be all good!
