Sony @ TGS has said that Vita’s battery will last between 3 to 5 hrs with the screen at it’s default setting, with the Bluetooth & network features switched off, while using headphones. A full charge, which takes 2hrs & 40 min, will offer five hours of video playback and nine hrs of music.
While fans were shocked by these findings, that wasn’t the biggest shocker from TGS. Sony will have its own proprietary SD cards for storage on the Vita, heres the prices:
- 4GB 2,200 yen (£18 )($29)
- 8GB 3,200 yen (£26.40)($42)
- 16GB 5,500 yen (£45.40)($72)
- 32GB 9,500 yen (£78.30)($120)
Now I was a little understanding about the battery life because no device is doing 3D graphics gaming and getting anything better than that, But the Sony and their damn proprietary storage crap again… it’s really a slap in the face to the consumer. You can purchase SD cards for way less than these prices on Amazon, so I don’t get it.
Chime in and let us know what you think, cause I think its a piece of “FUCKING SHIT”!!! Happy Weekend!!

A video from sony’s TGS conference today showed off the ui and setting up of the ps vita, you can tell from the start it has a android vibe to it but it looks a lot different. One huge thing the video shows you is multi-tasking, music player, different homescreens, video player and much more.
Capcom is back with a new DMC, with the new DMC comes a new look and with the new look you see a younger more american looking Dante. You can clearly tell that Capcom is trying to redefine the franchise, which I feel is well needed and from the trailer (Below) I must say I like it.
The game is now in the hands of the same developers who develop the Playstation 3 exclusive Heavenly Sword, Ninja Theory.
As you all know I am a fan of seeing gameplay footage so until then I will say that Capcom has my attention for now.

Sony has announced the next update for the PS3. Coming two weeks after the release of system update 3.42 will be firmware update 3.50, the only feature for this update at this time is 3D blu-ray movie support but it will be suprising to me if that is the only feature in this update with such a big jump in number because the .50 ect updates usually bring more than one feature to the table.
