New optional PS Vita Software Update v 1.69 is now available to download
Another worthless update.
I know, right? Where's my cross play?!
Cross Play already exists... so what are you talking about?
For what? 3 or 4 games? It needs to be way more then that to take off. Sure, future games might have it, but it needs to be on older ps3 games as well.
Honestly, if I could remote play all my PS3 games via Vita, I'd get a VIta in a heart beat. Atm, they keep touting Vita as a extension of ur ps3... but you can't even remote play the games -_- so much for 'continuing the game where you left off' It was understable for PSP, but Vita has enough keys to be able to act as a DS3 controller. Man what I'd give to be able to play Red Dead Redemption from college via my Vita
I want to be able to add all my PS1 games into my memory card all ready... i have 22gb of free space.
@Trenta27 Cross play is a developer choice.
It is up to the game developers to implement these features. Take it up with them!
When was the last time the ps3 got a GOOD update. How about a mini in game xmb and a real web browser?
give the people there making the d@mn software some time; God if any of you was even in the armed forces, that is a prime example of "hurry up and wait" you would not last 3 min's there with that kinda attitude you have; god your worse than little 4 year old children. Even a 4 year old get's a lollypop in their mouth and shuts up every now and then. they are working on it. BUT..BUT WE NEED YOUTUBE, and it's getting released the end of the month..but..but it should have been on the system aready right from the start. Really? and why is that? did you make the d@mn thing? did you pay for the people to make it's software? IF no than you do not know what was to be released on the d@mn machine from the get Go. you may say my Attitude sucks, and that im a fanboy defending Sony. No where am i defending Sony; Im simply saying the people who make the d@mn software and work on it every day is not your d@mn slaves. for $249.00 to $300.00 one time payment does not give you the express right to sit there and keep looking over their shoulder crying about features that they are working on , but are not being done fast enough for your impatience. how about people stop harping about it over and over, they did not forget about your request the last 1000th time you asked about it last week! instant gratification generation http://www.psychologytoday.... you know there's a problem when there is a whole subject on the matter right now. but my cell phone is sooooo slow...the signal there sparky is being shifted through a satellite the cellphone was not even created until 1973 and the first mobile telecom phone was not yet commercially available until 1983. How many of you were born before 1983? if so you are older than the d@mn technology that was created. Of course i get a disagree...but yet many on this forum still think it's overun by PS3 fanboy's defending their console of choice. When no it's just over run by fanboy's period.
Actually we did pay for the people to make the software. It's a part of the $250 - $300 each of us had to pay when we got the system.
Yeah, cuz you need a good web browser on your console lol. Seems you have no trouble considering you're online right now posting. You probably have 4 browsers. PS3, phone, Vita, laptop, etc.... How many browsers does 1 man need? PS3 is for gaming, not surfing. It does the web just fine.
Umm, If it was worthless, it wouldnt be a update right? EVERY update is for a reason. Nobody releases updates just because.
Most updates are just to keep one step ahead of hackers so they arent of much benefit to gamers.
Some on on this site said "Gravity Rush is just one mediocre game and MGS: HD is WAY better on consoles (Vita doesn’t even have Peace Walker HD). Vita is dead (how ironic) and Sony as a whole will soon follow, just look at their crashing stock and company value. F ‘em!" Then another replied Are you gamers or stock analysts? I find it hard to believe that any real gamer who isn’t a diluted fanboy would want Sony, one of the only companies constantly pushing new games whose competition pushes other companies as well, to fail. @Jason “MGS: HD is WAY better on consoles” Yeah? And so is Mario. Your point is invalid. I’ll be enjoying great games like Gravity Rush while you wallow in hatred." ^ This guy deserves a medal for being a true gamer. Why would you ever want a company to fail? Do you get excited with hundreds and hundreds of layoffs? Fanboys are the scum of the gaming world, and they are all in good need of a swift kick to the balls
We're inching our way to 2.0, which will give us partial PS1 support for the PSN's partial library. ... Huzzah?
Just waiting now for the hidden features article!
I spent a long time looking for anything new, and found nothing. LOL
In Sony language that means patching security flaws :P
If it was, they would make it mandatory.
Gravity rush 2moro! Vita is by far the best handheld ive played..
Oh you lucky bastards who will get it tomorrow. It launches in EU June 15th and then I will have to wait for a week-long delivery :(
downloading it now.... can't wait for Gravity Rush tomorrow... might pick up metal gear also!
I just want some real remote play already
yeah man ive had my vita since day one and that was the big seller for me. i developed alot of paitent waiting on the game industry to release shit, but i really want to enjoy my vita more and its hard to wait. right now im just playin my consoles. :/
Trolls be trolling! If I can't see what it does then it must be useless. "We Be Trollin' around the mountain when we BITCH!"
Off topic : I read in the UK it will be illegal to troll soon or u can be exposed lol internets should be freedom of speech. On topic: updates are really worth doing even if it's minor
No THC CELL, it's not a simple case of 'Trolling is illegal!', it's to do with bullying people personally over the internet, such as on facebook. It's over cases where people have killed themselves due to being bullied online, and other cases where people have trolled a dead persons/dead persons families facebook and suchlike.
Poopers be pooping Lol sorry, just love saying that.
And from this day forth all trolls shall be known as Johns. XperiaRay
I can't wait to be able to play all my PS1 games on my Vita.
yea cuz its 2012 and nothing beats playing 90s ps1 games on a hightech handheld that is capable doing soo much more and playing better games then ps1 games....really?
"hightech handheld that is capable doing soo much more and playing better games then ps1 games"
newer/better graphics does not equal better games
yeah really, you hipster moron, some of the best games ever made were from the 90's. god i wish i was you.
@YxUxNO + bubble for you. Many classic great games came out in the 90s, and on many platforms like the SNES, N64, PS1, etc...
@ BXbomber Well its 2012 and our high tech handheld console can not play ps1 games. LOOOL! I love my MGS and Rayman on the Ps1. And IMO SONY needs to get Ps1 emulation on their new system. When any shitty Android phone can do it then the vita can do it too. And full Remote play should come also. I do not get why Sony left that up to DEVELOPERS to implement... Its just as stupid as leaving it to devs to implement Music player (Ps3). The machines are more than capable enough for these features and it shouldnt be too hard for them to fix so why they didn't leave that stuff up to the us gamers is beyond me. So yeah FULL remote play via VITA should be comin up in my opnion. But it isnt the end of the world if it is not.
I wonder what all the "My PC can still play my games no matter what, while you have to start over every generation!" PC fanboys would say to this comment.
@BXbomber As someone who started gaming in the early 80's, most of my favorite gaming moments have come from the late 80's and 90's. Why wouldn't I want to relive those experiences on the amazing piece of 2012 tech that is the Vita?
Just a general question to N4G: Is the Vita worth getting as a handheld?
Absolutely. I dont regret my purchase one bit ... Im even considering buying 2 more ... 1 for my son and 1 for my wife.
My Vita goes everywhere with me. With the streaming Netflix app, my daughter can watch movies while cruising down the freeway using my 4G hotspot, and not have to lug a laptop around.
what do you need it for? psvita is first and foremost a handheld gaming machine, some people seem to be confused by vita social functionalities and applications that think the system is a cell phone lol, anyways i have just got into lbp beta and i must say its ps3 quality in the palm of your hands.
If you don't mind me asking when did you get your email?
As a handheld by itself,It's really good,no handheld can touch it,but I would say wait a little for more games to be released and then get it,so far the library of good games (or new ones) is lacking (for me at least),other than that,yes you should get one sooner or later :3 ! Edit : I would recommend getting one by November,that way you'll be having the new Assasins creed(Vita) & COD(Vita) releasing !
Yes, :D buy gravity rush , rayman orgins and uncharted golden abyss and you sir are going to have a blast.
And add Unit 13, Plants Vs Zombies, Motorstorm RC and Classics like Persona, Monster Hunter and other PSP and PS1 gems you will be loving it. Ooh and you cannot forget some of the amazing PSMini games like Velocity!
Gravity Rush is my favorite Vita game so far. I am loving this game so far.
For sure , mine goes with me to work every day , like a ps3 on the move.
Yep same here! I NEVER go to work without mine. :D
It's a great handheld and lot of games to play. I suggest you go through its library and see if you find something your fancy. You can also wait for a while until the games you like comes out. But, I can tell you now that it's the best thing I've purchased.
I bought two, how's that for a reply? One for me and one for my son.
Dude. This site is FILLED with sony fanboys.. They will tell you to get it even if it sucks or has no games because they praise Sony as their god. Don't listen to anyone on here if you want a genuine opinion
TheEatingOrange's warped opinion aside, YES you should get one if you are a fan of portable gaming. This is easily the best handheld gaming device I have ever owned. P.S. - I have owned almost all of them over the years.
BAH, it's still useless. Don't see the point of this update. Don't think this device will be good enough till SYSTEM UPDATE VERSION 5.2 or something
I'll get myself a Vita for Christmas... I dont see anything else I want so far this year so the Vita will have to do.
Vita has some solid games but Christmas will be the best time to buy one with COD, PS Battle Royale, P4G, AC3L and Little Big Planet already released by December not to mention the PS1 classics.
By that time there will be a white vita with AC3 bundled in.
I updated my PS Vita and as soon as it rebooted it turned off and now its only a black screen! smh even if i hold the power button for 30 seconds or 1 minute, nothing happens.
You're a lucky guy... NOT!
Reading the comments on that no named site makes me glad that this one has improved a lot on the fanboy department.
Anyone in the LBP Beta yet? I got my invite today =]
It was announced as an optional update for OS stability. What's the big deal here? I saw lots of comments there from people who have never played a Vita, commenting how it's dead and it's the worst flop ever etc...... What ever happened to judging a product by what it does rather than how it sells? Jesus, do people buy their cars based on sales rather than a test drive? Get your heads out of the crapper, ppl. You're supposed to be gamers. Gamers support the better hardware. Vita is the best handheld and the only reason to knock it would be because you're a sheep. I have yet to meet one owner who dislikes the device. It's always those who aren't familiar with it who talk garbage. ?????
Im not one to question people tastes, but I just dont get the portable gaming craze. Idk call me nuts, but when Im in a car ride with my son, I prefer to talk to him rather than have him veg out to a movie or game. When Im at home theres no way Im playing on a 5" screen vs my choice of a 46" or 62" screen in the livingroom. Last, when Im at work, I do the crazy and do work while Im there (for those who do so little at work as to be able to get away with using a vita at work, why you dont apply yourself and get a better than $9/hour job?).
