I love the Vita, but I'm still mixed about one aspect of it: The analog sticks. Perhaps I just need more time to get used to them, but at the moment they feel kind of small to me.

Are there are calibration tools? I'm probably being paranoid, but I feel like I may have messed up the analog sticks somehow...

Also, has anyone had their system drain completely of power while left in standby mode? About 24 hours of standby mode and the battery was empty.

Sony obviously wants me to download Virtua Tennis because I can't find it anywhere.  I really don't want to go digital download route because me being able to sel  them when I'm done is what helps me fund this hobby!

I had to order mine online to be shipped.    Best Buy didn't stock it.   Hell, I couldn't even find any reviews of it for a long time.

I really want Rayman Origins for the Vita, as I tried the demo and I like the way it looks and controls better than the console version.  But I already bought the console version, so the idea of paying for it again just isn't in my nature.  However, if I can get it as the free one in a B2G1 sale, I'd be okay with that.  Sadly, I already bought all the games I really want.  I could convince myself to get BlazBlue, 'cause I like that series, but I was trying to find another title to make up the third.  Virtua Tennis fit that bill perfectly.

There is no way to make that deal happen.

The best bets were Target and Best Buy.  Target doesn't have Rayman available online, but also doesn't have any of the titles in my local stores.  Best Buy doesn't carry Virtua Tennis at all.  At all.  I called numerous people about that, and there's no reason for it that anyone can understand, but they just don't carry it.

It does seem like a wacky launch in the way that the games are available at retail. Target/Best Buy/Toys R Us/ WalMart all seem to have different games in store and online. Only looked like GameStop had everything and they had the shittiest deal.


I ended up cobbling the games I wanted together with a combination of placed, but it wasn't easy.

I just got a chance to test the Party system on the Vita, and it seems to work flawlessly. It was easy to set up a Party and invite a friend to it. Once he joined we could continue chatting no matter what we were doing, as long as we didn't start a game that disables the network that is. This was actual voice chat. I have no idea where the mic is, but we could hear each other well enough. We then booted up Dungeon Hunter Alliance just to test multiplayer for a bit, and ended up playing for more than an hour. It was great fun, and quite amazing to be playing MP smoothly with voice chat on a tiny handheld console.

Awesome.   I wish I had more friends that bought game systems and stuff like this.    For some reason, most of my real life friends don't game much anymore.    They never were the type to run out and buy a new gadget either.

I think I need some new friends.

Joystiq has an article about their favorite Vita tips. Here is one:

2. Let there be light. You can adjust your PS Vita’s OLED screen brightness mid-game without the hassle of jumping into the Settings menu. Just hold the PS button to bring up a quick-access menu that enables you to adjust brightness and your custom music options. Wanna listen to the soundtrack to Armageddon while carving through Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus? Don’t miss a thing, baby.

From my personal experience, the non big-budget titles are the most impressive. Games like Rayman Origins, Super Stardust HD, Plants Vs. Zombies Vita, and Mutant Blobs Attack look really good and are a lot of fun.

I was surprised by how poor the Uncharted demo looked and played, does anyone know if the full version looks better than the demo?

I have an unhealthy obsession with finding the right Vita wallpaper.    So many of them look awesome but leave no empty room for the App/Game bubbles.    The ideal kind have the subject of the wallpaper to the right or left with plenty of blank room for the bubbles out to their right or left.

My non-existent willpower met my far larger than expected tax return, and I ended up coming home with a Vita tonight.  Grabbed it from Target, and since they were out of the free 4GB card, I got an 8GB instead.  Will probably upgrade down the road, but am fine to start out with this.  Also picked up Hot Shots Golf.

Am off to a rocky start already though.  4 screens into the initial set-up, I get a notice stating that a system software update is required before I can link my PSN account to this unit, but it gives absolutely no indication how to do said update (hitting "OK" just kicks me back to the "Do you have a PSN account?" screen).  Downloaded this on my PC, which is what I'm assuming will allow me to do the updates.  Will see how this goes...

I think what you needed to do is to let it give you a temporary PSN account, upgrade, and then link your Vita to your PSN account.

You basically have to skip the linking, then go into system settings and do an update, then link through system settings. And yes, it was not intuitive at all and they should have realized it was going to be a bad experience for everyone.

Well, that's exciting.  Seems that it wasn't doing a system update because it wasn't getting a Wi-Fi signal.  After experimenting a bit, turns out that I only get around 10-20% signal strength anywhere in my house unless I stand right next to my router, where I get full signal strength.  Which is odd, considering all 3 of my my laptops and my iPhone get full bars anywhere in the house...hell even all the way out to my mailbox.  Not even sure where I'd start troubleshooting that one.

Downloading Super Stardust and Tactics Ogre right now...looking forward to digging into a few games.  Bummed I can't play any of my PSX and a bunch of my PSP titles though.  frown

Asked the kid at Target if they've been selling a lot of these, and his response was "We still have 3-4 out of our initial shipment of 20 units here."  Yikes.

In regards to your hardware issues, that seems to be the case for most people as they acclimate themselves to the system. Once you get around those obstacles and begin to understand the finer points of operating it though, the Vita is incredibly intuitive.

As for sales, I'm pretty sure I read that sales exceeded Sony's projections already. So, it's doing fine so far.

I also decided to chime in as I fell prey to the forum effect and other outside influences...

So far this thing is awesome.

Screen, graphics, audio, and the craftsm :nod:anship are all really impressive. I have hotshots, uncharted and wipeout. I haven't touched hotshots yet only bc uncharted is stealing my time. Everything I've seen so far is really topnotch. But, really those animations in uc are sick. Did they use some of the same assets from the ps3 games? It sure looks like it...Gonna try out hotshots in a bit with my buddy in colorado!

Now a few not picks...

The right analog stick placement is really too close to the x button.
The wifi signal is as noted above not as good as other devices. I've read that in numerous places as well...
The charging symbol is way too big...okay, now I'm just being an ass and mocking;).
Obviously battery life...

Other than those few things it's all a way big thumbs up!

I'd say that not being able to connect to a WiFi signal (unless I stand in the corner of my basement holding it up next to the router) isn't "understanding a finer point of operating"...it's a pretty significant problem.  Unless there's a way to boost this thing's reception, it might end up on Ebay pretty quickly.  

Other than that, I'm pretty impressed with it.  Both Hot Shots Gold and Super Stardust look incredible, and the touch screen interface is fairly intuitive.  I'm tempted to give Shinobido 2 a shot despite lackluster reviews...I'm willing to forgive a lot for a Tenchu-esque game (This review is talking directly about me).  Hell, it sounds like almost exactly the same game as the original Tenchu:  so-so graphics, lame story, goofy AI, and bad VO work packaged around some fun stealth action.

I think he was talking about the system update process.  The WiFi thing is crazy.  There are probably some ports or priorities you have to set (which are hoops you shouldn't have to jump through, but there you go).

I will say, I had a similar problem with my supposedly top-of-the-line Netgear router last year.  It was suddenly dropping signals all the time, requiring a reboot (which is step 1 with a router issue, BTW, so I hope you tried that) frequently.  I looked online, and it turned out this was happening to a lot of people and was a hardware fault where it just crapped out after a period of time.  Ridiculous.  I bought a new Asus router that is sexy and kind of amazing.  All is good (for now).

Checked a couple other boards this morning (like this), and it looks like there's lots of people with the same problems.   Will try a reboot tonight and see if that helps.  Hoping it doesn't come down to fiddling with ports or priorities...I'm a networking luddite and am reasonably sure I'll end up borking every connection in my house if I start poking around on the router.  smile

I agree - The Wifi weakness is an issue.

My situation is not as bad, but I'm getting one bar in places in my house where other devices are full strength. Also connecting and disconnecting in some spots too.

Strange.   Well to be fair the 3DS has some very limited distance WIFI capabilities as well.    It struggles at the far corner of my house away from my router.     These devices have very small network antennae, so it makes sense they needd a decent signal.

Seems to be pretty hit and miss, from what I'm reading.  I'm apparently just one of the unlucky ones.  Seems ridiculous to have this issue on a 2012 handheld, but I doubt there's going to be much I can do about it.

The more I think about it, the more I don't think it'll end up being a deal-breaker.  It's still incredibly annoying, but I don't play any MP games, Netflix will be through my iPhone, I won't be using the Vita to surf the web, and if I need to DL anything I can just park the Vita right next to the router for a little while.  In all the years I had my PSP, I can count on one hand the number of times I got online with it.  Suppose I won't be able to submit any high scores to online leaderboards, but that sort of that has never really mattered to me anyways.

Swap it out?    Or do you think it's compatibility with your router?

Thank you for posting this. I was thinking the same thing and I have honestly never utilized the trader section. I'm not a big fan of Capcom VS. Marvel and want to trade it off. It was my buy 2 pick 1 freebie and it just doesn't float my boat. Great graphics, though.

Asked the kid at Target if they've been selling a lot of these, and his response was "We still have 3-4 out of our initial shipment of 20 units here."  Yikes.

Should we think about getting a game trading club set up?   When you beat or get tired of a game, you can trade it for one you wanted to play to someone else?

Just a thought

Um...



Thank you for posting this. I was thinking the same thing and I have honestly never utilized the trader section. I'm not a big fan of Capcom VS. Marvel and want to trade it off. It was my buy 2 pick 1 freebie and it just doesn't float my boat. Great graphics, though.

So SUCK it Gratch!  slywink

Don't have a PS3, and no plans to get one anytime soon.
