Sony's so amazing, supporting everything so well. I need to start using mine more... I bought a bunch of games for $40 weeks ago and I have some Plus games that I need to play on it, too. Damn PS3, always distracting me...

Also, Far Cry 3 is sooooo great!

Imagine far cry 3 on vita!!

Shouldn't you be studying instead?.

A lot of people can study and still manage to make room for some leisure time.

CommonSenseGamer  +   1061d ago a former PSP Go owner and long time PS3 owner I find your comment hard to swallow. I cant remember the last time Sony released a firmware update for PS3 that contained significant new functionality. Same went for PSP updates for the last few years. I also feel that drip feeding capabilities is not good business either. Not when the competition features thousands of Apps that do everything the Vita can do only a hell of a lot better.

Just open the Vita up to the Play store already!

Can someone please list which apps on the Vita are better than what's available for iOS or Android?

Although the Vita may be the best portable gaming device I have not seen much from an Application point of view that bests iOS or Android. I would love it if Sony opened Vita up to the Play store. Imagine being able to play all the great hardcore and casual games that would be on offer from Sony first party developers and independent developers. It would be gaming heaven!

Grow up. Your comment is repulsive and has no place here.

thing is I have both a Note II and a Vita, I got the phone in december to occupy my time(absolutely love it) as I am working/living away from home monday to friday, but I ended up buying the Vita because the phone does not have the games to interest me.

They are either too simple or difficult to use/compromised because of the controls. I love my vita for games but that's it, I use my phone for everything else and thats fine with me.

So its not just one is better than the other, but that one does something different to the other. Oh and I don't care who or how many people say it, mobile versions of games may look good but are not remotely close to the experience you get from a dedicated gaming handheld, not to mention less of a pain in the ass on your hands for extended sessions.

Look first own a vita then complain I welcome updates and stability look @kB0 comment just because it wont help you dont mean other gamers think narrow minded like you
chaos-lockheart  +   1061d ago
A lot of people with PS Vita cares,and you care too, cause you came here and checked and replied.
enkeixpress  +   1061d ago
why only improved system stability..? It's not that I'm not greatful, any support & updates for the system are welcomed with open arms.. but a few new features would have been nice.

No new options or tweaks to fiddle around with in this new update :/

it only patches the latest exploit... useless because the PSVita will get hacked again you will see.
chaos-lockheart  +   1061d ago

Please make smart and educated replies. The patch is not useless, you don't know what this update due. And if it is a Exploit patch it stalls the hackers.

Still waiting for Sony to add a Copy/Paste function into the browser.
Also, i want them to put the refresh button on the side of the screen with the rest of the options, so i don't have to go to the top of the page every time i want to refresh the page.

CommonSenseGamer  +   1061d ago
Sony's browser is years behind the competition and nothing over the past few years would suggest its ever going to catch up.

Now, imagine if Sony just allowed you to pick from Opera, Chrome, Dolphin or Mozilla. Its not just about games that gives a device a certain appeal. Its about being able customise and load it with any app you like. This is one of the reasons the Vita lacks mass market appeal.
chaos-lockheart  +   1061d ago
I think they can also like add search for a word in a paragraph in the web browser.

ability to play ps2 games on the vita? Or is that gonna be a Gaikai functionality?
jon1234  +   1061d ago
jon1234  +   1061d ago
i guess people like agreeing with trolls haha
chaos-lockheart  +   1061d ago
Who's trolling, it will be great to play Ps2 games
jon1234  +   1061d ago
although it would be great, sony never promised ps2 games on the vita, and about gaikai, until we hear an announcement about it, its not happening.

this guy is obviously trolling, its a .01 increment update... did he obviously believe we would get good features out of that...
Fullmetalevolust  +   1061d ago
well, what's laugheable is the assumption that stemmed from my questions, albeit, they were not elaborated. I was simply curious (believe it or not, trolling had nothing to do with it); wondering if someone on N4G knew whether it'd be possible to get ps2 games running on the psVita. I know Sony has not announced ps2 games running on Psvita, but is it possible? or are they going by ways of gaikai for backward compatibility and streaming?
Mecca4  +   1061d ago
Hope I can play my ps3 games on it with this update, that would be great
Oh_Yeah  +   1061d ago
Aka upgrade security because Vita now has cfw.
r21  +   1061d ago
Just give me the feature to swap accounts via memory cards and I'll be good till who knows when. Also, let me open a new tab on the browser without having to go to the newly opened tab. Like firefox.
ajax17  +   1061d ago
I'm curious with what they're working on with the PS3. Seems like forever since they last updated it.
FlyingFoxy  +   1061d ago
Well the last update made the browser worse, it crashes a lot more often.
Pillsbury1  +   1061d ago
Stop dropping updates and drop the price of memory cards.
Harkins1721  +   1061d ago
They need to make money. How else they gunna do it?
ISNeko  +   1061d ago
And there's everyone who bitches and moans about updates.
kB0  +   1061d ago
Would finally like native remote play, thank you!

Also from the

"From a gaming point of view, this firmware update fixes some lag issues in games Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus 2 and New Little Kings Story (thanks to Rawr for the tip on that)"

This update just became useful

Message to Sony:
When are you going to give us the Netflix app on Vita, here in the UK and Europe?
Liamabob  +   1061d ago
Message to fOrlOnhOpe57:
I doubt Sony will read your message on here. Also, I imagine that Netflix haven't submitted their app for these regions.

Message to Liamabob
lol you're probably right. It's like whispering into a howling wind.
Its a big frustration to me in regard to the Vita.
Liamabob  +   1060d ago
The Vita, to me is generally a big frustration. Aside from the hardware being mostly spot-on, the platform seems to have been a swing-and-miss. Holding out some hope that E3 will have some nice things to show.
DanyBrown  +   1061d ago
the uk might get it eventually but netflix is not availabe in non english speaking countries
