TSA: "Why on earth does Content Manager need to talk to the internet? Surely not to check for a software update, all the other Vita apps work without being online. Frankly it’s rather worrying, are Sony gathering data on what I transfer to my Vita?"
This really puts the final nail in the coffin. I'm never buying a Vita now. Instead of more hype and excitement as time goes by after the launch its the other way around. After the launch, we should be reading about how awesome the Vita is and how people are discovering pleasant surprises about their Vita. Continue to excite us with a constant flow of amazing titles but instead is a dry desert of new AAA releases and now this? Vita--> FAIL!
Rofl , and yet whenever you ask those complaining if they even tried some of the new releases like Gravity daze , Resistance , they just stutter or blurt out silly excuses . Or it's just usually the stuff non vita owners like to spit out (a fresh reminder of the ps3's launch i guess) There is a problem , it being fixed or not remain to be seen , but there were LOADS of games at release that hardly most vita owners can claims they tried or bought , loads of ps games available , and some releases since with at least ONE major one that met nothing but praises , but somehow underperforms . You guys can pretend otherwise , but even looking genre by genre there is a big choice of stuff , hell it even got the best choice ever seen on handheld for fighting games , something usually deemed impossible in the past . And racing games arent just crappy nfs ports as usually seen .
Umm resistance is effing terrible.
I dont like it , but it's not terrible imo . And it's still a new release . Quite frankly the genre that's lacking the most on vita won't ever set the west on fire chart wise : jrpgs . And it's only for while with major upcoming releases like Persona 4 At least for that genre you can also still rely on psp games .
so many non vita owners in desperation overdrive after the sony presser. 1st comment is ample proof. an ever since sony cut sixthaxis off they have been in revenge mode. too bad cause the vita is relevant an there site isnt.
He said she said. I say Vita has 2 and at most 3 AAA games and the rest are just fillers-iOS/Andriod like mini games or old PS3 ported games I've already played and no longer have interest in playing again like Hot Shot Golf, Ninja Gaiden. But hey if you think the current list of titles is so hot and its worth $250-$300 with memory card before taxes well everyone is entitled to their opinion. No matter how stupid and wrong. There will always be special brand of stupids in the world. These muppets also refuse to see reality for what it is and instead see the world for what they wish it was. Well listen up you Vita fanatic fools. Its not just me saying Vita sucks (for the moment because it may get better in the future). Its the rest of the consumers in this entire world. The global sales are falling faster than a blue frozen ball of lavatory waste ejected from a Boeing 747. What? The Vita sales are not that bad if you consider that this year Mars and Venus was not aligned with Earth? What? If you take the Vita sales and combine it with PSP sales and take the square root and multiply by Pie and then puke all over it and look at it upside down after its dried its not that bad? Fools.
" I say Vita has 2 and at most 3 AAA games and the rest are just fillers-iOS/Andriod like mini games or old PS3 ported games I've already played and no longer have interest in playing again like Hot Shot Golf, Ninja Gaiden" Facepalm.gif Uncharted golden abyss ( not a port ) wipeout 2048 ( not a port ) gravity rush ( not a port ) Unit 13 ( not a port ) Do you want me to continue when the third party support is huge and every aspect , every genre of games is on the vita already ? Damn that's 4 games already ...your first argument is already invalid.. and the rest of your rant is laughable... Allow me to laugh /sent from the vita web broswer
"He said she said" Precisely . hence why i dont buy your BS for a second . It's the same recycled garbage we got whenever someone got a beef with a console , be it ps3 ... 360 .. wiii ... wii u etc .. It's one thing to dislike a library and not find something one doesnt love , shit happens . It's another thing entirely to pretend games dont exist and trying to pass as someone stupider than you truly are (even if fairly moronic either way) . Anyway as i said , even classified by genres , o there are easily 3 good or great games for each . Most ports/multiplatforms , others exclusives . Enough with the selective memory . " The Vita sales are not that bad if you consider that this year Mars and Venus was not aligned with Earth?" Of course sales are bad ... and i did say there is a problem , but keep being shifty and pretending to be some Alzheimer patient and I some cultist and zealot . I wont follow further and sink into your brand of crazy . "Its not just me saying Vita sucks . Its the rest of the consumers in this entire world." Cool a citizen of the world . Good for you .
@josephps3 Nice trolling dude ----- @the article writter i'm looking forward for your "why i'm not taking my 3ds on holiday " for the very same reasons you've wrote. I know it won't happen since your article is stupid beyond even what i expected before cliking. I hope you'll enjoy gaming on the go with your ipod
I've been in hospital for 4 weeks the vita has 'really help me take that time.away
cheers to a speedy recovery. hope its nothign serious.
Who in gods name disagreed with this? Get well soon.
it was probably Satan seeing it was only one person.
As if it was even a discovery , this was known from the start , and well you frickin' buy it for games , the rest is a bonus , even if now standard features . it's precisely like b*tching about the wii's media options when it's a console foremost . Stop pretending you'd turn your vita into your main jukebox , between your phone , ipod/pad/phones and other stuff . It doesnt even got such an amazing sound .
Cause the point of a holiday is to get away from video games consoles and explore the open world? :S
no man would be seen in public with such a device that is why
Funny seeing that while I was playing on mine (movie theater lobby), people of the same age group (19+ ) were looking over my shoulder at it, and were interested in purchasing one before this semester started. They were amazed by the visuals and gameplay of Gravity Rush, but mostly by its fluidity and colors on a 5"oled screen... And both male(s) and female(s) were/are now considering on getting one if you needed to know good sir...
Strange im an adult and I game on my Vita all the time while using public transportation. XperiaRay
Funny! When i play that device as you call it in public. People are asking me how much it costs and if they could have try. All my friends have them;) (REAL FRIENDS if you know what that means).
i feel dirty for even clicking on that article... i guess he thought there were file faeries that transported his files from one device to another without an internet connection...
i just tried copy stuff from PC to Vita with any internetconnection cut, and it worked..
the article should read "i don't owns a vita but in trying to slam it i made myself look stupid for bein totally ignant on hows dat contents manger be workin . i is dumb."
Isn't it funny that the author had all that stuff on his Vita but he didn't know how to properly use the content manager.
"This Sunday I’m jetting off for my two weeks holiday" "Last night I finally got round to setting up my computer and thankfully it had survived the journey" Back from the future to complain about the Vita, eh?.
He moved house
Damn, your right. Too late to edit now, though.
"Why on earth does Content Manager need to talk to the internet? Surely not to check for a software update, all the other Vita apps work without being online. Frankly it’s rather worrying, are Sony gathering data on what I transfer to my Vita?" It's an anti-piracy measure. Not going to get into if it's good or bad, just saying that it is an anti-piracy measure. That's a fact, and this article should take that into consideration.
Pretty sure they are monitoring what we put into our vitas. Its probably one way to prevent hacks or pirated games. Still a hassle though if you havent got internet but to buy ANOTHER iPod? And how big is his mem card anyways? Mine's 4GB and yet i can put around 200+ mp3s, a couple of videos and demos. A very odd and quite immature article :L
32 GB i dont know how many songs i can put on it but i think a lot!
32GB can fit around probably 1000+songs and a whole lots of videos and games.
This guy is pissed because he can't use his vita for podcasts? He shouldn't even have one, the point of the system is to play games not to listen to Hunger Games with the rest of a emo culture. Get an Ipod if you wanna listen to that stuff, go out get a game and play it and see how amazing the thing is that you bought.
Well said bubble.
@Summons75 Well said and as if we dont got enough devices with podcast.
Just dropped in to say, here's why I don't care about the article. I just don't.
Sony definitely delivered on their Gamescom conference. Yet, the doom articles and constant hate articles will never stop... Im still wondering why we get these crap articles on the front page and more worthwhile stories like you know, GAME TRAILERS and PREVIEWS get little to no attention at all. Some of these so called "journalists" and "gamers" should be ashamed of themselves.
It will be your loss if you don't take your Vita.. And really i don't care about your reasons. Because i already got mine..
I can understand this from a certain point, steam does something like this with their DRM. If you want to play steam games (that support the DRM) you need to put your steam program in "offline mode" and in order to do that you need to be online. It kinda sucks because what if there was a random power failure (assuming you have a laptop) or what if your modem takes a poop and you no longer have any internet access? It doesn't mean steam is a bad service at all and neither is the vita for this particular matter. You can't claim bad service to a random unlikely event to occur, thats like being mad at sony because someone stole your vita and now you can't play games on it anymore because you don't have it lol. Simply put....shit happens.
this is even if shit does happens and he can't use it as wished , he wont make anyone here believe that's why he bought a vita and even bother using it for such medias . I love the vita and psp , but when given the choices , no way i'd pick them above the rest for media viewing , listening or podcast . And yes i dont believe someone that bother buying one of those handheld , stood there waiting for the all powerful media handling psp/vita machine while neglecting the rest . That's utter ballooney . Reminds me of those having a fit because of the lame (and once upon a time way worse) ps3 browser instead of using their regular devices .
This is one of the main things that pissed me off about the Vita when I got it. I knew that memory card space would be an issue for me so I opted to NOT download full games. I have one memory card(4GB for music and my apps) and another 4GB for a few PSP games NO MUSIC NO VIDEOS....of course this will change on the 31st when I pick up Madden and either buy a 16GB or 32GB(i'm leaning toward the 32GB so I won't have to buy another mc for a while
Wonder w/c would be first. VITA gets huge sales due to more/better games or VITA gets huge sales due to hacks/exploits.
The inconsistency in these websites are laughable. Let me get this straight, people always defend the Vita's price by mentioning its multimedia features. but when someone brings up a flaw of the features, you people go on the attack. "This guy is pissed because he can't use his vita for podcasts?" Summons75 So now people are dissing others on how they use their products. Now im really understanding the meaning of fanboy. Personally I'm glad I read this article cause I wouldn't have known internet is required. Sure most of us can adjust but Sony can't attract casuals with that system of transfering files.
Well......I suppose he won't buy a ipod/iphone/ipad because they cannot run near console like graphics/ gampeplay. Or a 3DS because it has 1 stick and doesnt have skype. Or a 360 because it doesnt have a blu ray player. Pshhhhht.
