We all know that we PS Vita will be a great device from Sony. The OS of the PS Vita will also be great, we've got a video for you which shows this.
I want Infinity Blade on the Vita.
Dude is kinda terrible with the touchscreen. He kept missing the buttons and pressing the edges. lol
I have to agree. This guy seems like he's never used a touch screen in his life, watching the video was like watching my tech illiterate nanna trying to use a touch screen, give it to someone who has a smartphone FFS. I havent logged into N4G in ages, but i had to just for this.
Infinity blade will most likely be there. S syite is mesnt toxbe q dedicated portal for game suport on android. The games are also meant to work wth the vita.
The screen was a little titled due to the camera, I think the guys point of view was different to ours, therefore he was messing up. The VITA looks beautiful though. 1st day buy for me!! Can't wait any longer :( :(
The wait is killing me Sony.
I wouldn't mind fingering it myself, if ya know what I mean.
My god......That UI looked terrible!
Looked pretty good to me. What was so terrible?
Maybe it was just the fact that he had to go back to the screen with the bubble buttons before he could flick upwards with his finger to access that screen lower down? Did seem quite unwieldy but could easily be rectified by just enabling the movement to access that screen on all other screens (if that makes sense?). Looks like a fantastic piece of hardware though, I only wish I wasn't spending all my hard earned money on saving for university, haha j/k.
your name says it all....
Looks like an amazing improvement to me
U.S. RELEASE DATE ALREADY!!! AND U.K.!
The firmware seemed to run nice and fast/smooth but how come he kept having to try a few times to press buttons? I hope that was his fingers fault not the touch screen.
Yeah I agree, he probably has to be right over the screen though, he seemed to be pressing the edges. I wish they kept the XMB with a different design though, I think it's cooler for customizing things like themes and stuff
iam guessing cause its being constantly on and used alot.. and you know how some people are.. if it aint mine.. idc... that type of attitude... i expect this issue to be crisp and smooth come release ;)
If you watched carefully he wasn't even hitting the buttons. He was off to the sides, to high or low, and was trying to scroll on things besides what he wanted to actually scroll. It was painful to watch
Dude is fighting with that touch screen.
I'm not sure if it's the screen or the guy touching it... but it was noticeable. When he went slower though it seemed to recognize the motions better.
This layout looks very good,Has sony learned from the PS3? i surely do hope so. But i sure hope that this "bubbly" layout doesn't make it's way to the next playstation (it only seems to work with the touch screen) Don't get me wrong,the XMB is good,but i just think a change(even if minimal) needs to happen
Looks very nice! screen could be more responsive though
It only looks that way because the guy is hovering over the screen and twitching a lot. Haha. He actually misses the screen a few times. :) I understand the confusion though. This thing is running a quad-core. I don't think it's going to be very slow. Most dual-core tablets are pretty darn fast.
3 disagrees for what? oooh I said a con about a sony system and made some sensitive fanboys cry xD
When he actually hit the buttons, they responded quite nice
This video is a prime example of why Touch screen SUCKS, still going to get one.
No it shows what happens when an idiot comes in contact with a touch screen. Anyways it looks pretty darn good IMO. The UI is nice. Other videos have shown that the touch screen is pretty accurate when someone competent is using the device. This is a day one buy for me.
It probably the dude is messing the button. Besides, try an iPhone then come tell me that touch screens suck.
Looks to me like he had a poor eyesight cause he keeps on missing his aim.
why do touch screens suck? I'm sure you can use the buttons to navigate too.
Not impressed with the UI!!
Looks too simple.
The UI is finialized and like any other touch screen interface. Sometimes you aren't going to be able to touch it. The way he had to keep pressing it to move is the same thing that happens to me and my iPhone. No big deal.
I agree, something else i wanted to point out is that sometimes he tried scrolling the list;it wasn't that it's not responding,but the problem was that he was at the end of the list (as in he couldn't go any further upwards/downwards).and at other times he was probably touching the screen outside the touching zone(if there is a touching zone,that is). So it only 'seemed' like it wasn't responding.
The entire screen is the touching zone since it's a capacitive touch-screen, so it might be the fact that the software isn't finalised yet. This also happens with Smartphones and Tablets.
Well I think that if you're trying to scroll the list, you should put your finger on the list, not the edge of the screen. That was his problem
EDIT: wrong post.
Is he on CRACK or something?
The Vita just seems like such a high quality finished product.
The Most beautiful Portable ever made in gaming History...... DAY ONE!
Scrolling needs some work or the guy demo-ing the vita is nervous using it.
IF your talking about the part where he tries to scroll up & down then it's not his fault. He reached the end of the list so he couldn't go any further. He kept on trying but it just did the bouncing animation because he reached the end of the list.
Hes not very good at using the touch screen, he kept scrolling the wrong direction.
every touch phone has similar touch problems while talking about it lol, go check out engadget. Its a touch screen thing. Maybe in 2015 those soft touches can be auto-detected but right now, thats all we have. Ill stick to use the Left and right arrows for Back and Forward.
As far as I can see/tell, The Vita is ready! apart from that one little error I noticed in the video.. So, Hopefully, Sony will make a surprise announcement that it'll be releasing in the UK & US this year. That'd be super awesome if that happens 'cause right now, I'm really jealous that only Japan will get their hands on it. All I'll be able to do is watch footage of it on YouTube which is pretty nice but I'd much rather play with it myself. Also, I can't wait for this beast to get hacked, not for piracy.. but for more features, just like custom firmware on the PSP where you can play backed up games from the memory stick, speed up load times, increase the CPU/GPU speed.. etc etc... :)
"Also, I can't wait for this beast to get hacked, not for piracy.. but for more features, just like custom firmware on the PSP where you can play backed up games from the memory stick, speed up load times, increase the CPU/GPU speed.. etc etc... :) " All games will be available digitally or on a cart, so load times would not change by any hack. CPU/GPU speed: would you really need to increase this? it's got 4 cores of each, 1 CPU core is dedicated to the OS, it's going to be much faster then the PSP so the increase won't be as noticable. I've also heard it will be region free, so at this point there isn't going to be much difference between a normal vita and a hacked one.
This is amazing if u travel alot whitch i dont but i already have a ps3 at home. Really dont see what the fuss is about???
I know everyone and their mother will disagree with me on here but I don't think this device is going to do much more than PSP did. Looks slick but I believe that any portable device that doesn't allow the option to make a phone call is not going to sell well anymore. I am not suggesting that something this size should be held up to your face but some type of integrated mic to work like a speaker phone would have gone a long way. No interest in carrying around a cell phone and a gaming device when traveling. This is why other companies are doing so well with cell phone games right now. Again, 100 disagrees at least I'm sure:)
A mobile phone is something your meant to have on or near you at all times, a handheld console is something you take when you think you will have time to use it. If the vita had phone capabilities, it would weight more, cost more, require much more memory for the OS, games look worse, hell it might even be bigger. In what way would it having phone capabilities increase it's gaming value? just suck it up and make room for both a handheld and your phone, cause we all know a phone isnt much of a substitute for a real handheld.
^^^^^^The perfect response to any naysayer on the role of dedicated handheld and their viability in the future. The Vita will be perfect for its intended use.
if you need it to be a phone use skype you should check out the plans. Also like the psp i'll have blutooth, so hook up a headset.
exactly: skype! if you want the Phone capability, the skype will do exactly that combined with the 3G connection!, because you can indeed get a skype in number, thus people could call you on the vita, since the Vita also has bluetooth connectivity, a standard bluetooth headset will work. all of this across the 3G network thus there's no point in getting phone chipsets, when you already have the capability with a 3G connected Vita. the Wifi would do the same but you would need a Wifi hotspot,which anymore now days is going city wide anyways. the idea because it's not a phone does not mean you cannot make or answer calls on the Vita, Skype "In" number fixes that issue..IE: you get a phone number that people on landlines or cellphones can call you on or that you can call other's landlines an cellphones. you have an address book/contacts. the call quality is just as good as the landline or smartphone..there is no need to make it a phone when with skype it already will have the capability to be one!
touchscreen doesnt seem that responsive....
Can't wait :D
Not very impressed with the touchscreen. I was expecting it to be at least close to iPhone/iPad screen quality. Hope Sony does something about it.
You shouldn't judge it's capabilities based on this video, wait until its released in japan and more videos pop up.
All it needs is some uber remote play support. But I don't they'll be obvious about it. (it'll more like a hidden feature) I wonder if Ad-hoc Party will work on it??
Why can't I just Press L/R and buttons? I find it odd you have to take your right hand off the Vita while holding it oddly in your left hand.
I love it but the guy demonstrating the thing just ruined it for me. I mean come on, know what you're doing before you give official insight on a device.
He did. You just had to, you know, pay attention to what he was doing, not necessarily what he was saying. Basically, I was able to learn two very important things. 1. OS is the same clunky, iOS-clone I assumed it was when it was first unveiled. Big step backward from the XMB. 2. A... 4GB card? This is, I believe, an event commonly known as, "EPIC FAIL."
I want 2 please. Everything about the PS Vita is looking awesome
I was worried when I first saw this video but read some Escape Plan previews and you will hear no touch screen complaints.Seeing this vid on a larger screen has made me realise the man is a ham fisted chimp and may have never used a touchscreen before.
The OS to me looks a lot more flashy and fun to use than the 3DSs os. I am glad that sony didnt use XMB with the vita because in my opinion i like flashy interfaces and with the extra ram on the vita they can do that. Now if only i can see a real good demo of the web browser which will be one of the apps that i will use the most on the vita. Hopefully its a lot better than the PS3 one because that browser feels extremely broken.
the UI looks awesome the touch screen too i saw uncharted GA and the touch screen works very well
that is one sexy-slick looking handheld.
Gotta love playstation life!
Can someone please teach this guy how to use the touchscreen and when he hit the end of the list?
