the controller feature is my fav. :-) i hope they do this for ps4.

I would like to see a feature that allows us to connect our PS3 controller to the Vita.

Controller, so does that mean ps3 games can be controlled by the vita?
Remote play ps3 games???

topekomsi2076d ago

I was thinking the same thing.

They just showed LBP2 being controlled by the Vita in gamescom. It's not remote play - it's like the Wii U controller tablet - you see more details on the Vita, but not the main game itself

How does that work? You're missing two shoulder buttons :/ I'm guessing it's only specific games.

you have the back touchpad which you can assign upto four inputs simultaneously, a great substitute for L2,R2,L3, and R3 and then you also have a multi gesture touchscreen.

I wish they would add the ability to organize pictures into folders instead of having them automatically categorized by month :(

edgeofsins2076d ago

I don't have a Vita but maybe if you tap and hold on a picture and drag onto another it might stack them into a folder or something.

Worth a try.

I can't wait till I get my own Vita.

Yep, if only they would allow app support from the development community. I hate waiting for firmware updates to maybe get some features you're after.

Same goes for music as well... You should be able to make your own playlists at least. :\

extermin8or2076d ago

you will be able to after 1.8 (music playlists that is) it's on EU PS Blog

AMAZING, it sounds like, maybe, the cross controller feature may lead to ps3 content being played with the vita and a ps3 controller?!

Nice.. But I was expecting the "significant improvements/fixes to the browser" to be included in this firmware update.. :(

Guess we'll see 'em in the next one.

topekomsi2076d ago

I second that, I want the HTML5 to work for videos in the browser.

They should just change there Internet browser into Google Chrome, seeing as Sony and Google have such a strong partnership.
