It looks like Vita 3000 got trademarked in japan.
Is that an HDMI port?
I'd happily buy a new model but I would really want it to have L2 & R2 buttons. PS4 remote works great on a technical level but where I stumble is having to learn new button layouts for games that use all the controls. So Assassin's Creed IV L2 & R2 on PS4 become L & R on Vita. And L1 & R1 become (if I remember correctly) the touchpad. Very confusing. So it would be so sweet to go from PS4 to Vita and everything is the same.
Charging port on the top of my vita looks like that and is in the same location.
PS Vita Clamshell please to cure our stiff necks!
Sorry mates. That's just a trademark of the basic design of the PS Vita 2000. It's not a new PS Vita. At the same time they trademarked the basic DualShock 3 design. https://twitter.com/tradema... Here's the PS Vita 2000. Identical. http://livedoor.blogimg.jp/...
This is just a big fuss over nothing. It clearly says "position trademark" for the button layout. Maybe hard to understand due to google translate and lack of gaming journalism research as usual, but nevertheless. Just a trademark for button layout and nothing more. Here's another for the PS3 controller. https://twitter.com/tradema...
"filing date: April 1st 2015"
Almost like that's the start of the Japanese fiscal year or something ...
Guys... the trademark is about button placement and only about button placement. The description says it all "携帯用液晶画面ゲーム機用のコントローラー " コントローラー means controller So no, Vita 3k is not in production. please notice how buttons are marked... This is from a reply to the article from another site. http://thevitalounge.net/20... First comment of the article.
Just dont make exclusives for Vita 3000 like the crap Nintendo do with the new 3ds
Why they did that was beyond me. Even sloppier than the handling of the Wiimote and that Motion Plus accessory. I guess it wouldn't be the first time though. The N64 expansion slot for example and the tiny Gamecube memory cards (Animal Crossing ate a whole card). All these things trying to prevent me from gaming.
People would feel forced to buy another handheld. More money in their pocket.
Nintendo do? Xenoblade Chronicles is the only game ever created and confirmed for it. Uninformed much.
MegaRay said to not make exclusives like Nintendo is doing. You named one game that is an exclusive and reports are that this won't be the last one (the percentage of the games is yet to be know though). I see nothing wrong with what he said.
blaming Nintendo for games being exclusive to n3ds isnt wise. When it give devs the ability to use more power, better engines and bigger games. Whether or they use it is up to them Nintendo didn't confirm that games will be made exclusively for it. They said if devs chose to utilize it then it will be exclusive.
Even worse to me is the exclusion of a charger with the 3DS XL. For those that are trading their old 3DS towards the new one they have to trade in the charger as well, and then buy a new charger separately.
I KNEW IT! Everyone told me it won't happen but the Vita is coming back! New model, here we come! Now this strengthens my opinion that Vita 2 will come.
I hope so
Lol read the article filling date is "1 APRIL" Ring any bells ? There is no new one coming as of now
still no L2 or R2, c'mon sony get with the program.
I'm still trying to wrap my mind around how the form factor would handle said shoulder buttons. Maybe if they could flip in and out that would be nice.
Nintendo already figured it out. http://www.3dstination.com/... Or Sony can make an add-on. http://i.imgur.com/oa6Da.jp...
maybe they can make a deal with the ppl making the Deca-Vita
The only thing that could make me want to upgrade.
Can we please get some AAAs for the vita please!!!! Maybe a god of war New jrpgs something anything pleas!!!!
Yes! AAA batteries would be so helpful!
I would like to start with importing some of the games Japan has first. I wish I knew Japanese, but sadly it's not an easy language to learn quickly.
Good I guess haven't heard much Vita news recently.
Needs better WiFi connection than the vita mk1 for better ps4 connection.
This isn't a surprise, PSP had a 3000 model and for us not to get one. Well Vita would have to be doing really bad (PSP Go bad). I hope we get the new OLED screen, because I pass on getting the LCD one because the picture looked faded compared to the 1000 model. Plus speakers moved, my fingers cover them.
L2 and R2 please....
1.OLED Screen 2.HDMI Port 3.L2 R2 4.Micro SD Card slot Make those things happen and I'd pay 150 - 200 to have one.
it's amazing, this handheld is officially Dreamcast 2 superb hardware for it's time and yet it sells very poorly which is a shame... seriously, if it would sell better we'd have more Uncharted Golden Abyss quality handheld games coming out on the system. or MGS Peace Walker 2 type of sequels or FF: Dissidia 3 or Shin Megami Tensei games ported or just about any good games from PSP having a potential sequel on the Vita. PSP had the similar problems when it began but it proceeded to actually get damn good games along the way
Yeah...if you do the research the PSP had far more success than the Vita for primarily two reasons: GTA and Monster Hunter. There were other factors like GoW and Square games and whatnot but those two franchises were the top sellers and really put the system on the map. Of course Nintendo swooped up MH with its Wii cash flow and Rockstar mysteriously vanished from the mobile scene. It's really a shame because the Vita is the best handheld gaming system we've seen. Although PSP had the vastly superior OS for sure.
