    Sony, just add a PSP-game support and I’ll buy your Vita then~

  2. squiggs says:

    about time that they allow folders on the vita i am out of spaces on my vita and i am afraid of what happens if i install something else

  3. Pirate Cat says:

    This would be rage inducing, but I like to think that most of the other comments are right and this is just a dev unit.

  4. The Kick says:

    Let me guess…If this is a new model, it will take different memory cards. After they forced people to buy their overpriced cards! Douchebags! The vita is the worst console i’ve ever purchased because it CAN be good. Sony is just stupid. Im going back to my Gameboy Color, lol.

    • JC3Fresh says:

      who said anything about a new memory card? he just mentions that there will be a price cut which is for the memory cards it already has

  5. TheTokBokz says:

    Well one things for sure, the PS4 wont be called PS4 due to the number 4 being seen as bad luck in japan (or something like that)

    • stOneskull says:

      nah.. i think they will totally ignore the superstition.. it makes much more sense to just call it PS4.. and there will be a few games ending in 4 for launch.. like Uncharted 4 and Killzone 4

  6. mangbhoy says:

    If the “next gen PS Vita” has
    – longer battery life
    – louder speaker volume
    – retain its shape
    – retain its current weight (or at least +/- 8%)

    I don’t care about the micro (or is it mini like the PS3?) usb port
    I don’t care about the HDMI port
    It does look like a Dev kit Vita

    I bet my ass that they’re gonna price this one higher than the current 3G model (if it is indeed a “next gen Vita”)
    This 4G model won’t sell because 4G implementation in the majority of the world is shit (even so in at least the next two years). But I guess they’ve designed this with the Japanese market in mind (Japanese mobile services ftw!)

    • stOneskull says:

      i think an HDMI port would be very nice to have.. although i wouldn’t buy a new model just for that.. hopefully the expansion port can be multi-use later on

  7. Noquarter says:

    Damnit! I wanna like the vita…but…It’s ugly, too big, buttons are too small for my tekken needs and NO TEKKEN!!!!!!!!Make the buttons bigger, look more like the psp slim, add external controller capability and I’m sold. No Tekken, no vita for me I’m afraid!

  8. josh says:

    I hope they make an update that will let you play all psn games, like gotham city imposters, dungeon defenders, etc.
    They also just need to make an hdmi cable that plugs into the accessory port, and an update to let you play video out.
    Finally they need skylanders for the vita. the portal can also plug into the accessory port if needed.

  9. mer2329 says:

    i would like to see:
    – dual memory card support (like the the photofast for the PSP but on board)
    – HDMI on the top of the unit (due to the way cords are made)
    – no special system flag to play games on the TV (like the remote play flag in the sfo files for the PS3 games ) [guarantees complete game library support]
    – any accessory that actually uses the accessory port on top of the system (its currently a waste of space) (diagrammed as port 1 [not visible])

  10. HerperOfManyDerps says:

    Wait, lol isn’t that just what the psv dev kits are ’cause it looks exactly the same..

  11. faezbarca says:

  12. Danny says:

    I’m buying this, and I’m a day 1 PS Vita buyer. :}

  13. bob says:

    sony, just give me a slim nexus 7 size and resolution tablet with memory card / or mini bluray and built in ps4 controller with ps4 interface, I know you guys can work with amd gpu and Samsung for the 8 core micro cpu, I know u guys can do this, I believe in u guys :)

  14. bob says:

    better yet just get a custom micro 8 core cpu from intel and just port the ps4 into a brand new portable that will work with project Morpheus, please make a lot of us happy, the ps vita is a joke for hard core gamers, you guys could make this totally different from the ps vita and just make this a ps4 portable :) , also if you use a slightly bigger size portable you can easily fit a full size bluray.

  15. Thaelos says:

    I’d just be happy if they made sure to fix the blo0dy button stuff ups. I’ve only just bought my standard edition vita. And already it won’t play games like it should. It’s fine on the home screen and stuff like that. But, as soon as a game loads up. Say goodbye to using all, but the Power, volume and PS button.

    I’ve trawled the internet for a while now… There’s like. A whole three phukn options. 1) reset, format, reboot, rebuild the libraries. And hope to hell it fixed that shiddy problem.

    2) pull the back cover off. and go phuk Rsing around under the hood.

    Or

    3) go pay $ONY to p1ss fart around with your console for phuk knows how long. and pay nearly the cost of a new unit in the process.

    It’s bullsh!t. If they just tested the crap out of the console first. Us users wouldnt have to suffer the greased mollasses help and support. Or find our system’s gone and set itself on fire. thanks to some cheap skate decision localised around the chargers.
