Excellent
Good
Meh
Bad
The Verge ( a really good site in case you don't know) says the battery lasts around five hours. A very thorough review. The guy could have written a book with it.

still looking for video showing how to switch different account on a Vita...
anyone found it...?


there wont be multiple accounts on Vita

http://www.psu.com/Sorry-to-backpedal--Only-one-PSN-account-per-Vita-%28seriously-this-time%29--a013923-p0.php

Yes. That alone almost kills Vita for me.

I will have to buy the same game twice....One time for me, and another time for my brother.

And buying Physical copies is expensive for me(I live in Latin America) and We don't have confirmation if there will be backwards compatibility on PSP 3 for physical copies.

well it doesnt even make sense sharing a portable. from my point of view either of you should be resposible for their own gaming and you can always share phisical copies of games.

the backward compatibility has been adressed already, you'll have to pay a small amount to get a digital copy of the game you own in UMD.
not an issue for me. from now on i'll buy digital and i plan on keeping my psp anyway for my UMDs.

this 1 has brains. don't let the zobies get you lol.



mugen. i think you should use your 3rd post on the front page to reference links to article post you make, or even post the link to that post in the op giving some type of description referencing the topic when you change the title of the thread.

Not sure if anybody posted this, but Engadget got a hold of a Japanese Vita and did a review on the hardware.

http://www.engadget.com/2011/12/21/playstation-vita-review-japanese-edition/

For people wondering about the battery life:

If the Vita had us worried about anything, it was reports of a lightweight battery. Three hours? That's on par with the 3DS, which didn't earn any points in the power department either. Like the PSP Go, there's no removable battery, so how does it cope? Were we going to be forever tethered to the AC socket? We tried several different run-down tests the get to the bottom of this. On an all-out gaming test, it looks like the rumors were right - you're looking at around three hours of playtime. It took us around an hour and a half to recharge from zero to full, during continued use. That aside, you'll be wanting to take some sort of power cable with you. USB recharging is possible, but boy, it's slow.

In more casual use, with a smattering of half-hour gaming sessions, some Twitter, video and music, this stretched out to around five hours, but it's very much dependent on use. Near, the Vita's location-based social network seems to assist in bringing the battery to an early demise. We were unable to get the DoCoMo-connected Japanese variant to connect with our own SIM cards, but we'd imagine 3G use would be even more taxing on the battery. It's hard not to take issue with the Vita's longevity, or lack of. Would it have been too hard for Sony to bulk up the proportions of its latest handheld to offer us a more substantial battery life?

Isn't Sony releasing some kind of extended battery accessory for the system (if it hasn't been released already)?


Probably a external power source that you can take along with you but I hope its not a bulky as the one they had on the PSP.

Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
