@ just_looken: Vita means life. Look, I' m italian, and if you think that name is wierd I can tell you that there is a little city called Bra like 10 Km away from where I live :P
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
And Piedmont -the region where I live- ( Piemonte in my language ) means "at the feet of the mount".
Who care about cities names? There are wierd cities names in every corner of the earth!

CaptainMarvelQ8  +   1210d ago
what's wrong with the name?

it's like when people find nothing to complain about they pick on such minuscule things,next up:why is the background blue?

Could you explain to me why the buttons are not made from ice cream? Seems like a massive oversight to me. The Vita is FAIL. /s

I've noticed it to. Some people have been complaining that it's expensive!

Oh yeah baby! PSV come Christmas. I can't wait. TENCHU'S CCOMIN BACK!!! WOOOOOOO!!!
Inception  +   1210d ago
You mean Shinobido 2? cause i don't see any Tenchu title for PSV. But i don't mind if there's a new Tenchu for PSV ^^
Lord_Sloth  +   1210d ago
Some1 else has also corrected me on this matter. If it's anything like Tenchu than I'll be happy either way.

I guess when you tell someone to get a life. The can go into a store and pick one up.

The Vita is a cool device and will be a day one purchase for me. Maybe i will pick up the 3DS as well but only if Nintendo slashes the price because to me (my opinion) the 3DS is expensive for what it is.
fei-hung  +   1210d ago
I wonder if this will eat into the Apple Itouch market :s Either way, I think it is genius how they are bringing playstation suit to any android platform making it not only a marketing tool for Sony products but growing their consumer base. playstation suit almost sounds likea trojan horse if they manage to execute it right.

I just hope they have something like facetime for the PSV.
IRetrouk  +   1210d ago
cant believe the price of the thing, well worth the asking price if you ask me, gonna get two one for me n one for the gf.

I'm very disappointed to hear that the only supported video format is MPEG-4. It's almost a crime to only have 1 format support with a beautiful screen like that.
joeorc  +   1210d ago
you do know there is converter software
" http://www.scei.co.jp/corpo...

just because MP4 is the only one listed does not mean you cannot get other formarts to be converted to MP4!

MKV an other formats are very nice no doubt, but if you want videos to run, it would not be any problem to convert your video's to run on the industry standard MP4 video format anyway.

I really do not see a problem with that since i have had to deal with that for every freaking handheld i have ever worked on.

with programs like "format factory"

it's not a problem.

hell we may get updates to what format's the PSV can play anyway..the firmware updates can do that.
SonyNGP  +   1210d ago
But think about it. We're in 2011 and this is some really powerful piece of hardware. There's simply no excuse to limiting format support.

I know you can convert videos and stuff, but seriously. Till when?
Hell, even my Galaxy S II plays MKVs on the fly :/
joeorc  +   1210d ago
once again
by keeping it simple of mp4 THEY HAVE A UNIFIED video format for the platform.

less resources to expend supporting other format's , that is what the converter program is for!

being 2011, 2012 or what ever is kinda moot at this point. why because if you have videos in other formats, there is a big chance that many times it may not even play in the device due to codec issues, or the video is not made for that screen size.

this is making a mountain out of a mole hill in my opinion, because if you want your video to play the best anyway your going to have to convert it anyway. if you do not care about the quality anyway an you just want it to play natively, than that's just a limitation that software can fix further down the line.

This is not a hardware limitation it's Focus is on games it seems more than about Video format's

It may not have the support for formats like MKV outright but they could very well update it
support more formats, but very unlikely MKV though...:P, even if they don't there is still a solution for you that's what the conversion software is for.

hell i would love 3GP format support, but i really do not care because like i stated before with converter programs i can convert the video to the screen resolution an give it the best viewing on the screen it can have.

but that is just me.

Yeah, but does your Galaxy S play Uncharted? Priorities straightened.
