vita what a disappointment

48 Replies 2,430 Views Created 02-03-2012

i wasted four hundred pounds on a console which in my mind does not live up to expectations.

 

i am not sure what the contents manager is all about why not just make it cut and paste?

 

child like icons that look graphicaly rubbish.

 

facebook crashing all the time.

 

never getting my free game from voda phone and wasting 5 pounds on top and not being able to top up via credit card.

 

sold the lot back to game and lost 50 pounds cash, what a waste of time and money.

 

the only saving grace was the graphics on video and games but the rest hell no. i wonder if any body at sony reads these messages.

I suggest before someone spends a few hundred GBP that you do some research onto what you are buying!

 

 

Lack of research is the only disappointment here

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?

I agree, it could be better

 

child like icons that look graphicaly rubbish. Most of the icons are the same as the PS3. I like bubbles! But each to their own.

 

facebook crashing all the time.  Should now be fixed.

 

never getting my free game from voda phone and wasting 5 pounds on top and not being able to top up via credit card. Not Sony's fault.

Maybe you should change your background,makes the bubbles look better. Facebook is something that will be fixed but works great for me.

There will always be some problems in the first months of a new system.

i agree about the interface, the xmb is a much better system for me.

why do you have to tap the icon and then tap start, i didnt tap it for a laugh!

it is abit chunky compared to my pspgo, but drake and everybodys golf are excellent.

 

ps3 features were weakat release compared to now so sure there's plenty to come

You sold a gaming system for none gaming reasons whilst complimenting the gaming.

 

That makes sense.

 

Facebook matters to you so much on a portable games console? I'm sure you've got a phone that can run Facebook just fine, your reasons for selling it are ridiculous. It's only just came out recently aswell, the PS3 was absolutely terrible at launch compared to the PS Vita's launch and now look at the PS3 it's great.

There were plenty of demo units around, between vita rooms and Game stores you would have had plenty of opportunity to test one out. 

 

Personally i think all your faults you listed are minor:-

 

Content mananger does the job so what you complaining about. 

 

Bubbles - Meh

 

Facebook - LMAO 

 

I bought the console for GAMING and in that category its amazing, oh and movies look great too. All the other stuff is just bells and whistles and will improve in time with updates. Look at how basic the PS3 was on release. 

 

Personally i just think your seeking attention. Ill go back to playing Uncharted, Fifa and Golf on my handheld.

Oh and you tap an icon and then tap start because there is a live are on the menu after you tap it with all the information about your friends who are playing the game/have played the game. Awesome feature I must add.

Exactly!

 

Why do so many people overlook this and instead complain that it's some double tap annoyance?

Makes me laugh, not exactly difficult to tap it a second time lol. These people should have been around when you had to load games from tapes.
