In less than two months, the Japanese will get their hands on the Playstation Vita. As the hype trains chuggs along, Famitsu has published a FAQ detailing several features and limitations at launch. Some of it is no surprise, while others are questionable. So, what details emerged from the FAQ? Here are a few important ones.
- There will be no Game Archive support at launch. Game Archives usually includes Playstation One games or both Playstation One and TurboGrafx/PC Engine games. Famitsu’s wording suggests that both type of software will no be supported at launch.
- There will be no flash support at launch. This means that it may be added at a later date. What the internet browser supports include Java, HTML5 and cookies.
- There may be a method to transfer save data of PSP games to the Vita.
- A Wi-Fi connection will be established first. If that fails, then the 3G will try to establish a connection. There will be no automatic switch from 3G to Wi-Fi if a Wi-Fi spot is found.
- Upscaled visuals will be available for Playstation Portable downloadable titles.
- GPS capabilities will be available for both connections, but a 3G connection will be preferred.
