Already just 2 days after the big Japanese Launch of the new 'PS Vita' platform, problem reports are flowing in!
Hopefully these problems can be fixed by 'firmware' update, but is sad that users are already finding many issues with the 'PS Vita' after spending their hard-earned dollars on it in Japan!
Whenever new hardware launches, whatever it is, there are problems.
The PS Vita is new hardware, and while I haven’t experienced any hardware issues, others have.
These are just some of them collected from various sites and forums:
One of the first 'problem reports', is that many games are turning off the WiFi stopping any communication or social updates and messages, plus WiFi is programmed to go 'auto off' after 5 mins on desktop also cutting off communication!
Hopefully, yet another firmware update will fix those, but the next report looks alot harder to solve by just firmware!
The biggest problem, is when your 'PS Vita' system locks up, there is no RESET or way to turn it off, you have to wait until the power drains, as the battery is internal preventing its removal!
According to YouTube videos, there are some machines experiencing these lock-ups and freezing.
One error appears to occur during the System Update, which then freezes.
Another issue seems to be a non-responsive touch screen.
It’s still early in the hardware’s launch cycle, so it’s difficult to discern how widespread the issue is.
Pro-gamer Kiryu Tsukimiya tweeted that he’s soon experienced it.
