    Sony must be on dog food

  3. etertay says:

    still waiting for the hulu app…

  4. soad26 says:

    They really need to cut prizes in this stupid men cards. Anyway, the HDMI, new USB port, and the new power socket is soooooo unnecessary. I believe the vita’s mysterious accessory port can be a HDMI, connection for PC, and many more.

  5. Brendan Beckmann says:

    I’m not going to lie – if there is a 4G Vita on the horizon with HDMI capability, I’ll trade in my current 3G/Wi-Fi Vita and get a new one.

    I really hope they can add something else that’s truly NEW to it, though.

  6. compil3r says:

    I was just about to buy a unlocked 3g Vita to avoid updating my Wifi one (with Uno exploit), if this 4G update is coming, i’ll gladly wait.

  7. GOD_of_LORD says:

    Ra-ra-ra-ra-ra-ra-rageeeee QUIT !!!

    😉 I was about to sell my Wifi Vita to buy the 3G one….

    Now I’ll wait.

  8. Dan says:

    What? Price cut on memory card?
    #$#%$^ I just bought 32G card for $77.
    I should’ve waited.

  9. EJ says:

    a remake would be fine, but wouldn’t mind a change of power button/volume on top, since that is pretty annoying when I am carrying it and accidently hit it. As for the software change…just release a patch to other Vita owners, I’d love the folders. This better not be the only thing they’re going to reveal Feb. 20th, I’ll definitely rage then, ha ha.

  10. empc says:

    pinches weyes de SONY , QUE COMAN CACA

  11. Jmqm says:

    Hopefully they release the new model for WiFi only too? Quite excited for the folders, idek why, and for the HDMI input 😀

  12. Jmqm says:

    Why do I always have bad character pictures :S LMAO

  13. Jmqm says:

    SEE WHAT I MEAN?! LMAO

  14. Jmqm says:

    OMFG The characters noticed I was raging :O

  15. Soldier says:

    How much would it really have cost them to have had 4g in the original one? HAHAHA, Sony is a joke!

  16. Skars says:

    A separated save file from game file would be a good feature.

    Just like it was on PSP and PS3, easy to copy, transfer and backup. All fast.

    Backup on vita is a pain.

    Can’t do a clean install of my games, cuz the save is linked to the game install.

  17. HDMI ¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¿puerto¡? sony ahora si apesta no comprar una ps4 después de dos años ya que si compras algo de sony cuando sale, las revisiones de hardware son casi un hecho de cada modelo aparezca un modelo slim o super slim, ultraslim.

  18. solidsnake says:

    Well, what good is new hardware without good software?
    Their are so many devices out there that have much better software and are sold at affordable prices.
    I am going to get one of those nvidia shield dohickeys because it appears to be able to do everything and then some. Being able to stream your BIG pc games to a handheld device sounds like a dream. I will never get out of bed again if I can play a game like skyrim on the shield from my pc to my bed.
    I think the shield will blow all other devices out of the water. Why I havent heard more talk on this subject is strange to me. Or its too good to be true?
    Anyway. Vita needs great Apps and Great Software! This is what makes people crave a device.
    You can have a giant tank, but if its not mobile then you have giant paperwait.

  20. hikarux3 says:

    that the developerkit on FIG2!

  21. IgnusArmagadan says:

    I love my Uno exploit, but I’d give it up for the HDMI port and regular USB connection, lol. I’m sure another exploit would surface later 🙂

    Thanks JD8531 for the awesome article, I wonder what port #59 is and if they are going to put a better flipping camera in, other than that totally upgrading from 3g to 4g. Hopefully att contract will not continue and it will be unlocked.

  26. gunblade says:
