Cant wait to get one and mod it..

Is it possible that there's some kind of different tech inside these new Sony MMC's that would prevent running games with converted regular MMCs?

Also, I would love that Idea.. Just hope it's not too bulky and not flimsy AND costs significantly less! smile.gif

Hopefully the performance isn't hampered as well.

AFAIK, Sony's another angle on this is that instead of people going ???? with different kinds of MMC classes (4 5 6 etc).. they'd just provide a singe "class" MMC. (maybe it's faster than most if not all MMCs at this size?)

Anyone care to fill me in on this? smile.gif

Thanks.

Pshhh, portable gaming systems were so 5 years ago.

Phones now dominate and will continue to dominate the mobile gaming market.

da...wat ???


there is not a single phone in the market that comes close to Vita hardware...mobile phones will not look the same or better than Vita games in maybe 3-4 years....and that is because the phones are a "make everything" gadget...the Vita is a "only games" gadget...and pricey ?? galaxy note cost 600$...

Ehm what?

Mobile phones are going to be available with quad cores in early next year. The graphic chips in them already can do near PS3 graphics at 720p....

PSV is not all it is cracked up to be spec wise.

I guess people should change perspective about graphics.. Maybe it'll be moot with the VITA in its life cycle when you consider looking at the less dedicated core gaming portable devices.. (tablets, touches, Note, etc.)

I bet in 2 years time VITA's outpaced regarding graphics.

Most already know it's about the games but I am not too confident about VITA becoming attractive to more developers (but I admit it's really too early to tell).

The VITA's gonna be a very small niche.. I just hope I am so wrong..

Graphix, graffix, graphics....

What do you want to play on your phone with such powerful hardware..? Angrybirds..? NFS..? Fruit Ninja..?
Personally, I hate that kind of "casual" games.. I simply can't stand them..

You can't compare a vita [which has a gaming platform] to a smartphone [applications platform], software-wise they are 2 completely different worlds..

Memory card is 4 times the price of an equivalent Class 6 Micro SD.

Sony = Fail.

Sony is stuck in the 1980s when they used to matter. The world has moved on.

What? Sorry wasn't clear and also confused to your reply and why you quoted me.

What I was trying to say is that the VITA's graphics shouldn't really be the focus as its graphics will soon be outpaced quite quicker by other platforms.

I still believe they are competitor platforms although being indirect.

Not everyone can afford both platforms.. maybe two

All I am saying is that with tablets, smartphones, portable pmps.. the gpu output will become much much better than what the VITA can do in it's life cycle.
And as of lately, there are more developers starting to take some good interest in those platforms.

Me? I don't even own any smartphone and just a psp, a netbook, a weak lappy and my sig rigs.

But AFAIK, the casual market is a huge chunk and should be considered by sony.. w/c i think they'll be having a hard time competing.. (unless they magically port android or some castrated access of android market through the VITA)

For the asking price, I don't think the VITA's hardware is very appealing.. it's just "promises and wishes" atm. Software is more important imo.

It has the least software library among the other platforms (least backwards compatibility too).

Now you can always say.. "give it some time", And so I will, By that logic might as well wait for the VITA gen 2.

Unless Sony announces that they've met their sales projection or sales target for both software and hardware in the coming months.. I will surely not give the VITA a final judgement of either being a success or failure.
