Vita Browser Unusable During Gameplay

Sony PS Vita News

The Playstation Vita will boast multifunction capabilities when it launches on December 17 in Japan. This means that a player can interrupt the game and access some of the features of the handheld console. They could listen to music, use the social applications and look at your friends list. However, if you want to browse the internet on its web browser, then bad luck, as the browser will be unusable during gameplay.

According to Andriasang, this came from a correction from the Impress Watch Random Tracking feature, which looks at the Vita’s multimedia features. The original story had said that the web browser would be available while you were playing your Vita/PSP game. However, Sony has corrected that statement, telling Impress Watch that the web browser would not be able to run simultaneously with a game initially, meaning that, in order to use the browser, the player would need to exit the game altogether.

Their correction did include the word initially, which would mean that an update to allow the web browser to run simultaneously with games could be considered in the near future.

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!
