So a day after release what would you like to see added improved to the OS?
I think it's pretty slick , does it job.

My suggestion for improving it would be to add the ability to turn Wifi and Bluetooth on/off in the quick settings menu.

Day 3 on the vita, and so far I'm impressed.......but.....

No Skype - hopefully with video chat (yet?)

No Netflix (yet?)

No Youtube (yet?)

No iplayer or any other tv services.........(yet?)

STILL no fix for the ARP list remote play problem. (the router switches the ps3 on then the remote play is disabled- which I'm sure you all know about!), so still no internet based remote play for many.

Proper online presence on the psn whilst on the vita at all times (optional at least)

better, less clunky messaging for friends

A Better Browser (at least one that scrolls properly- did they even test that?)

Flash or Java support.

more ps3 remote play gaming

ps1 or (ahem) ps2 game compatablity

I'm a bit confused what they wanted the vita to be. As a portable games console, its awesome. Like a mini ps3, but as a 'social' gaming platform it's definitely needing some fine tuning.

When sony released this onto the market to compete with i-pads, i-phones and android devices, I expected it to be able to do everything my sub £50 android phone can do ....except make phone calls of course-(although with the right software, there's no reason why it shouldn't be able to!)

Don't get me wrong, I'm loving vita, especially for the games, and hopefully these are just teething problems that'll be fixed after hearing this sort of input.

 

oh and one for facebook, who are having trouble with their 'app' at the moment of writing this.......facebook chat and picture uploads? the vita does have 2 cameras you know!

Reading the first post. was the 'Flight Mode' added as an update?


As far as Firmware and Software goes I want support through MediaGo instead of the basic push file system.
The Music app to have a sleep timer.
And to be able to change the Icons style, size and placement so we can have them anywhere and as anything.

As for Hardware, if there ever was a Vita MKII they should move the PS, Select and Start buttons to the bottom of the case like on the PSP. instead of being under my thumbs.
And a camera upgrade. needs something over 3MP

There isn't much to fault with a Vita. just minor things to make it more acceptable.

The Sim card works in an unlocked phone. but no idea if you can use it as an actual pay as you go phone sim.

Sony and Vodafone should make an app for txt messaging or something.

A text messager would be really great. What would be even better is the ability to be online even while playing games such as Uncharted.

you only get a few hours on uncharted without being online if the wifi was active it would know it down to next to no time.

 

Harry potter 5 to 7 goes ofline and the Vita goes from full to flat in 3 hours with wifi that would be well under 2 hours.

 

Give me longer battery life TBH.

 

Yet Everybodys golf I can seem to get 7 hours or more from it.

Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?
