Recent reports on MCV suggest that Sony are planning to transform both the PS3 & Vita into eBook devices through their eBook initiative – we should hear more at E3.
Kindle app on Vita is my most wanted feature right now.
Wow, I never even thought about a feature like that, but this sounds really awesome!
it seems like a no brainer to add in support for features that are thriving on other devices. Be it a kindle app or nook app I really think an e-reader app is well warranted.
I did, and sent it to them in an email. I also thought Sony should make PS Home spaces that feature educational games to get more PS3's into the classroom and potentially into family homes. Also PS Home needs to use an interface similar to the PS Vita were you simply click on the icon or link you want to go to, then it transports you to a realized world like PS Home currently is. PS Home mixed with the interface and seamless flow of PS Vita should be the new OS for the PS4 and forward. It's innovative, it's new, it's attention grabbing, it's a casual gamer pleaser, and it's something they already have.
My most wanted feature? Games.
I'm good for games, still haven't finished Lumines, Rayman, Motorstorm, Escape Plan, StarDust or picked up WipEout and Unit 13 but I have Gravity Rush and MGSHD both paid off on pre-order... so, yeah, Kindle app.
hmm i was just talking about this same thing at work this week with one of my friends. the screen is bigger than my phone and i dont have to spend money on a ereader because this would make the vita all in one. plays great games, and on occasion read a book or two perfect. i made the right choose buying the vita.
this is amazing
More like convenient IMO. A kindle app is on pretty much every smartphone and tablet. This is more a layer of convenience than anything new and "amazing"
more like amazing.
this is why they got rid of the comic book store.
ebooks on vita sounds ok but really who would read an ebook on their 40inch unless the ebook have some interactive features.
This is kinda pointless. Get a Kindle Fire?
It makes the vita more flexible device. @rage the ps vita screen is 5 inches wide I think half the size of an iPad,so it won't be that bad. @mon This was reported 1 day ago and akuma was being sarcastic.
... if I have a Vita and DON'T have a Kindle Fire, WHY would I go out and BUY a Kindle Fire when I could have the Kindle app on my Vita? And my Vita fits in my pockets(tight fit, depending on the pants). A Kindle doesn't.
I wouldn't want to read a book on a screen that small.
Akuma- must hate this because he said its stupid if the Wii U and Nintendo copies the eReader.
And it still hasn't got youtube support.
Now all it needs is a calculator.
this is what i have been waiting for, i am taking summer courses for college . being able to game before class,reading my textbook during class, and gaming after class would be really convenient
You know what? As soon as I read this title, the blood inside started to boil, but after clicking my mind changed. It's okay for Sony to compete the PSVita with other popular devices by supporting apps for it like an eBook. This not only opens up more available markets and uses for the PSVita aside from gaming, but it also diversifies the consumer perception and outlook of the gaming handheld because it's also a multipurpose device that offers other forms of entertainment and satisfaction for a person. Why buy a Kindle when the PSVita offers eBook capabilities and much extraordinarily more? Does this mean Sony will slack in games for the Vita for supporting future applications? Not at all, because Sony is ALL about gaming.
I think this feature would be cool and adds value to the Vita. I am sure there will be people who likes these kinds of things, to do this on the Vita versus there smartphone or tablet. For example, I have a Galaxy Nexus for a phone, but I would rather watch Netflix on my Vita simply because I adore the OLED screen on the Vita.
Hmm, If they get an e reader app, i hope they get a nook app too, a good handful of people have purchased treir books via nook. Also, IDK, is the resolution enough, seems a bit low for e read capabilities.
Calculator, alarm clock, memo pad thing, YOUTUBE!!!!!!!!
