Here's What The PlayStation Vita Won't Do

The PlayStation Vita will be an incredible piece of portable gaming hardware, but keep in mind it is still a portable device.

As such, there is new information coming out as the Japanese launch nears, which shows a few of the things Sony's PSP successor won't be capable of doing.

One such thing is the ability to have multiple Playstation Network accounts linked to the same Vita. The PS3 allows several users to create their own accounts and toggle between users.

One other thing users won't be able to do is pause a game and toggle to the device's Web browser. This is another feature that the PS3 is able to do but alas will not be functional on the Vita.

The reason the Vita is being compared to the PS3 is because recently, it was revealed that the device will be able to have full-access "Remote Play" functionality. That is, you'll be able to tap into your PS3 from your Vita as long as both devices are connected to the Internet.

So if you're playing the latest God of War game on your PS3 and need to head over to your parents' house for dinner, you'll be able to continue the game from your Vita while sitting around and trying to avoid dinner table conversations.

Although there are some limitations, the Vita will go leaps and bounds beyond the PSP with such features as trophy support, pausing games to check friend lists, Twitter messages, etc, and the ability to connect to other mobile gamers on Sony's Playstation Android app.

The Vita will be released in the US in February. The PS3 was recently updated to make way for the impending connectivity features.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
