With 3D and light at maximum settings, battery saver enabled (it doesn't look any worse and it helps quite a bit on high brightness settings), StreetPass enabled, headphones on, it lasts 3.5h on me.
Also, the Vita may have faster hardware to feed, but quoting Nintendo's hardware development team, 'the feature that eats the most battery in a mobile device is, by far, the backlight'. And the 3DS is feeding THREE screens backlight. That is the main reason why the 3DS's battery life is short.
Well, that, and the fact that it's super tiny and super lightweight. You can't cram the massive battery pack the Vita has in there thumb.gif (props to Sony for being able to put such a monstrous cell inside the Vita)

I'd like proof of that.
NINTENDO ~themselves~ said you cannot get above 5 hours

Every critic, user, and even my own experience contradicts your claim of 6.

Ars says 5 hours is the hard limit

The only time someone gets above 5 hours on a 3DS is playing a Nintendo downloaded game or a DS game.

I know it's better they have such a thing (has this really been done today?) but the competition still does provide a better solution by being simpler and straight forward.. and not paying twice.
I was talking about the browser since I kinda believe that single purpose devices at this price point isn't gonna bode well. (But really, too early to tell since the VITa could probably have browser improvements [either through Sony or hackers] and more app support so again, ATM, just "mostly potential").
When you meant MP is it just co-op? Not the regular "MP experience" from console titles like KZ-3, COD, BF (PVP matches)? (not rhetorical question. Real question)
AFAIK Unit 13 is SP. If not and if the VITA can show within 2 months that it has such MP (over wifi with no PS3 intervention).. I'd probably have a more positive outlook for it.
I am really sorry for not making myself clear with MP. I was referring to the regular online MP our PC/bigger consoles provide (like 16v16 PVP team fights online [through wifi]). If Unit 13 delivers that then I think it'll help spike the VITA sales. If not then I'll just have to wait and see if the VITA does that.
Can the VITA do UvMC3 standalone online MP? Or you mean just MP via playing with another VITA beside you?
Didn't PSP have wifi only MP with KHBSS as you would with regular MP titles with the bigger consoles? (not the MP where the PS3 had to intervene {AdHoc?})
Oh.. NETFLIX? NICE!
+rep!

Co-op 2 player teams.
And every round is different. Maps generate AI locations, styles, item drops, and mission objectives dynamically.

I understand what you mean about things like 16v16, and I'm sure we'll get some kind of that. Games like SOCOM on the PSP did it, so why not on the Vita?
But, I don't think thats totally necessary for the device. I never saw a point in MP on these devices to that extent (like an FPS)

Thanks also this game seems to do it as well i guess (not 16 players ofc)?:

I think that's also the needed point for the VITA.. the WHOLE console experience on the go.. including MP (Pretty sure MP is becoming a more huge thing for games.. a profitable trend afaik).. probably a good one would be a quick 15 min death match round. In that way it can further justify the whole asking price and huge hidden cost.

*I was just surprised recently that UCGA is 50 dollars and SP only? Maybe I heard it wrong* (just brought UCGA since it'll probably the combo to own [VITA+MMC+UCGA = $$$]

It would also be very appealing upon trips with wifi places. Hence a "REAL PS3" on the go.

.. again, going back to my previous guess and points: "Not yet missing any console level MP games where a few months upon the release of that MP VITA game, the user base is almost depleted".

Awesome! And so again, I'll wait for those titles to be announced and made sure they make that kind of MP. (Announcing COD, RE, KZ etc. could mean anything at this point.. It could still have the chance of not being their PS3 counterpart in terms of MP [i.e. just 2-4 player MP co-op/PVP).

Just to make myself clear again. I am definitely more excited for the VITA's further future not so much with the first few months upon Western release.

But hey! I am fickle minded so whatever thumb.gif
