Vita FAQ Reveals Several Launch Details

Sony PS Vita News

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.
    1. 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.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
