Epic Quest for Pinball FX2 and the Valentine's pack for Rock Band.  I'm also considering Tales of The Abyss.  I have it on the PS2 and never finished it.

Playstation Vita, of course. No capitalization of "the", unless, like in my case, the word is at the start of a sentence.

Not enough coffee today? slywink

What Mo said.

Also, I'll probably get Tales of the Abyss.

I'm still on the fence about Vita, but it'll be next week if I do.

Oh, and Twisted Metal, probably.

That may be, but I've saved some money as well.  Heck, I rarely play games on my iPhone.  Gaming is just something I don't think about when I'm out and about these days. 

Give me a few years to where I'm doing a lot more waiting as a parent, and I very well may change my mind, but as a single guy, I don't spend too much time in places where mobile gaming would supplant either my consoles or PC.

Yeah, I guess for me, I travel a lot for work, but I even play portable games just sitting at home.  I've owned every Nintendo and Sony portable system released and just always found a way to include those games in my life.  The original Gameboy came out while I was still in high school and I didn't own an NES (still had my Atari 2600, though), so that was my gaming system for more modern releases.

Vita + Uncharted.

I might consider Grand Slam Tennis 2 after reading reviews/impressions.  I like how it's using analog controls for swinging like the new NHL games.

Epic Quest on iOS.

Also, traded in my Wii today, along with all the accessories, a few games, and a few DS games. Had so much more credit than I expected, I thought about a Vita, but just picked up SW:ToR as planned and will sit on the rest for now.
