PS Vita’s Alarm Clock Release Highlights Sony’s Internal Woes

TPR: "Whilst the launch of PS Vita’s social alarm clock, aptly named “Wake-up Club” is good news for the West, one can’t help but read a little deeper into the scenario." (PS Vita, Sony, Wake Up Club)

For goodness sake. Surface is looking set to fail because of a lack of apps, Sony should just release an update to open the Vita up to use the Play store and be done with it.

agreed.. but didnt sony kinda just do this with their own store? they recently released their SDK unfortunately i think it costs $100+ to publish.

The vita needs to be an app device soo badly

"but didnt sony kinda just do this with their own store? they recently released their SDK unfortunately i think it costs $100+ to publish. "

its $99.00 a year to publish any and all your game's not on a game by game basis, its $99.00 a year. You still have to submit it for review process. with all games and Applications, there is right now many games that are $2.00 or Less, Lemming's is free for instance.

the SDK is free, you can use a standard over the counter PSVita to test your code on, also you could just use only the PC "PSVita" SIMULATOR TO DO IT WITHOUT EVEN NEEDING THE the PSVita!

check it out for your self.

That same game or Application will work not only on the PSVita but any Playstation Mobile certified device, One code one time and it works across all PSM certified devices.

The Vita needs to be a gaming device.

App device? No thanks

Youtube and Skype is cool and all, but games is all it needs

Play store? You meant THE Google Play store? That'd be sex!

I know it's uncool but I'd really want to test Modern Combat 4 with the VITA system :D

It's a freebie app that has been out in Japan for ages.

I think these writers must have too much time on their hands to be trying to read stuff into the western launch schedule.

Who knows what the hurdles were? Time zones maybe? Seen as the app is based around people setting the alarm for the same time, and then helping to wake each other up?

Exactly. This is the biggest stretch I've seen yet to bash and doom the Vita. it really is pathetic.

I really wanted a video gaming handheld device to be my alarm clock since my DS Lite broke. 3DS doesn't have a alarm clock as far as I know of so it's great that my PSVita can be my new alarm clock! :)
tubers  +   612d ago
Yeah... pretty much using my PSP 3000 with CFW as an alarm clock.

You know what app I'd really want from Japan? That Toro app. Its a pretty fun app :D

Is it on the US store ? I don't see it =(
