The Best and Worst Places to Touch Your Vita

IGN - Ever wondered how developers make touch controls for PlayStation Vita? During a recent talk, Sony Bend senior staff game designer Ron Allen explained exactly what went into designing the controls for Uncharted: Golden Abyss, including how the studio thinks about each section of the handheld before committing to specific controls. (PS Vita)

I love how practically everyone holds the Vita wrong.. There is no reason why your fingers would be touching the back touch pad accidentally if they are resting in the grips like they should be.

According to IGN.. 142 Vita owners don't know how to hold it.. and people wonder why the gaming community is so stupid lately.

I have big ass hands also and I have never once had any of this happen. I put my mothers life, sisters and brothers on it. Amazes me, someone with abnormally big hands like me can hold it just fine without ever touching the front or back touch pad accidentally..

Hmm maybe because I actually place my fingers in the grips, instead of resting them on the back touch pad.. I can understand it being an issue at first but the Vita is not a controller, you need to hold it a little differently and it shouldn't take a person with common sense very long to figure that out.

You would have to have some seriously fat hands to be hitting those sausage fingers areas also.. This is such a stupid article..

"you need to hold it a little differently and it shouldn't take a person with common sense very long to figure that out."

I have big hands and I have to rest my middle fingers on the back or I can't hold it well. So I have no comon since because of a personal preference?

Clearly you don't because you are incapable of telling the difference between "Since" and "Sense"..

Thanks for proving my point.

Hey you did get me there but i'm going to blame it on watching the Boston Bombing stuff while trying to type.

I like to dim the lights when I touch my vita, even if it is in the worst place.

I touch my Vita at night. It's why the dinosaurs died.

You touched your Vita!? PERVERT! lol

I try to do it every day. Sometimes more than once.

Sony Bend rule.

One another note, I generally like touch controls, but having to double tap in Dokuro to transform between Dokuro or Prince SUUUUUCKS.
