How many are playing Near you today?

71 Replies 461 Views Created 23-02-2012

For those whose Near app does actually work for them, how many are playing Near you today?

 

Take a picture of your screen if you wish, not forgetting to scroll the screen down so we don't see your address before you take the screen shot!

 

If you don't know how to take a screen shot using your PS Vita, all you need to do is simply press the PS button and the Start button at the same time.

 

Today, there are 27 people playing Near me!

Only found 8 in my area. So far I've only had Near work once, which was just now. I pretty much had to stand outside my house. I thought there wasn't a GPS built into the Vita. I thought it just ran of Wifi/ Mac location?

Just searched, there's 20 people "Near" me.

How do you unlock a gift in Near?

Anyone help me understand this?

 

I bring up the grid with all the players playing certain games. I view their games etc. . .but in Discoveries. . .there are always "0" in the players met. How do you increase this? The games discoveries is at 5 but you can't actually view what they are though :S

Do you have a source for that, AFAIK all versions of the Vita have GPS built in as maps is available on my WiFi only Vita and no GPS makes maps useless even if you can only use it on WiFi.

From what I heard Maps tried to guesstimate your location on WiFi models using the accelerometer and digital compass to judge where and how you are moving.

 

One thing that puzzles me though, what direction is the digital compass facing?  When I was on the bus today with Maps open I had to point my Vita diagonally to get the pointer to correctly show which direction I was travelling along the road.  That seems like a pretty major flaw as surely the top of the Vita should be forwards?

 

As for Near, last I checked it said 13 people bear me but it said 83 when it refreshed on The Moor, Sheffield - where I was visiting Gamestation to get my preorder credit switched to a £10 PSN voucher.

 

Speaking of, "Game, Fargate" do not have their demo Vita any more, I wonder why?  In Gamestation I had another go on Ridge Racer to confirm I do not like it.  I also got to play the whole Gravity Rush demo this time thanks to it being early morning and empty.
