    Certainly not 100 percent scientific, but according to Kotaku Japan's PS Vita survey, 1 out of 10 Vita users had hardware issues and had to exchange or repair their hardware. Most everyone seemed happy with the Vita, though.

    I'd be surprised if that was the actual figure, mostly because from what I've read it was an online poll. Any online poll ever taken is instantly unreliable because people are dicks.

    And also, it's from Kotaku. Need I really say more?

    unlike shitty kotaku articles, this is from The Japan branch, also it's a user poll. No shitty opinions Here!

    Japan and it's forums have it's fair share of trolls as well. So considering the validity of the source and the amount of evidence needed to back the claims - this article and entire thread is about as useful in giving a view of the real figures as this overall site's views on Microsoft are pertinent to the satisfaction of one of their consoles.

    Now I'm not saying there isn't problems, or that the Vita doesn't have it's issues - but the poll and article in question are fairly useless.

    Need help? Just ask (blank friend requests will always be ignored)

    The Japanese kotaku have come out with utter shite much like their western counterpart.

    It was taken online, and there was no real method of regulation to the findings. As they even stated themselves about the credibility of the findings, they could be off.

    But the most important thing above all else is;


    the fuck?

    So in other words, it's unreliable and biased. But so is anything with no supporting facts..

    lmao.

    Besides, I don't care for the rates of people needing their Vita's repaired in Japan anyway because it's not here in the US yet. Once it gets released in the US, then I might worry about it.

    PS360, how many hours of your day do you spend just searching for articles to bash the Vita? We know you hate it, why don't you just move on with your life?
    Hey. Hey. Look. Look at me. I'm playing video games.

    I'm asking the same to you. It's clear you don't like Ps360, yet you keep checking every thread he posts and even bother to reply with what you just did. "Why not just move on with your life?"

    PS360 might post articles but she has also said she has the 1st edition preordered so I don't think there is any hate involved (unless she just spends 300$ for the sake of spending it )

    I think PS360 is a "he". The anime avys he tends to have might be to trick people

    Yeah, Ps360 is a he. Or if you wish to think Ps360 is a she due to the avatar, we might as well call young DaRe here an 'it' because he has an animal as an avatar (same with Chambers).

    Not only is that not true, it's strictly an opinion. If your going by power of a system, sure. Other than that, not true one bit.

    I don't understand why some of them fail to work. Is that kinda like the Vitas version of YLOD or is it just random freezing?

    Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.
