Awesome, this certainly is a great step forward for Sony.

Trying to learn a little C# myself, see if I can accomplish anything with this.

Maybe now these hackers claiming to fight for 'homebrew' etc will stop their antics against sony now?.. maybe they weren't being douchebags but instead creating a tool?..

Anyways this is cool, like @Snookies12 i've been looking at learning c# mostly for app use so this is awesome :D

This is good news indeed.

uwazir2373d ago

good news. now come on developers and geeks at home use those genius brains of urs and develop some gd apps for the vita plz.

MySwordIsHeavenly2373d ago

GOOD! Let's hope a lot of Android/iOS games come to Vita. The back touch pad is perfect for games like Angry Birds or Tiny Wings. Trust me...I don't want to see shovelware on the Vita either, but more games = more sales. Sony should know this by now.

dboyman2373d ago

How about some non gaming apps too? Vita is like a small tablet...

illidari2373d ago

The backtouch pad isn't useable yet through PSS.

MySwordIsHeavenly2373d ago

What? Seriously? That's...stupid. Why do they even have it if nobody can use it? It's great in Escape plan and Uncharted.

MmaFan-Qc2373d ago

maybe because its a beta?

Apocwhen2373d ago

What app(s) would people like to see developed? Give me ideas :)

Holy poop! That's a lot of ideas, and awesome ones at that! If even half of these make it to the Vita, it will be amazing...

Maybe we should also have custom Android 4.0 and access to Google Play...
