    I want to make a list of all the problems with the PS VITA, so then I can think about buying it. Hopefully there's not too many, because I was going to go pick it up next weekend.
    So what are all the problems you've came up with so far?

    I have the 3G/wifi model. (well worth the extra dough) I did have mine freeze up when i was trying to get to the att site to activate the 3g from the vita. heard it was a firmware issue so make sure you have the most current firmware before getting to far into apps and games. it will ask you during setup so make sure to have a internet connection and set it up.

    Almost sounds like my sounds my PS3 XD

    I don't have a Vita (yet) myself I've heard people claim that their vita's would get the Blue light of death, but it's easily remedied just by doing a few specific button presses. There was a video someone had linked that teaches you how to do it. The are solutions out there.

    I've only had mine since the 22nd, but I've been playing it 4-6 hours a day, and haven't encountered any issues, except for Super Stardust Delta... but I'm getting that worked on with PS Support, so hopefully that will be working within the next week. Perfectly happy with my Vita otherwise.

    I think a lot of people are confusing the power save sleep feature with this so called Blue Light Of Death. When you screen goes black and the PS button starts flashing blue that is not the Vita messing up on you. Simply press the ps button twice, and then pull the screen down. If you go into your settings you can change the sleep feature to wait longer periods of time before going to sleep.

    Mine only froze a lot when I first started to set it up. Especially when I tried Content Manager. Oh God. -_-

    But it's been great ever since besides the app errors.

    I have a couple of problems with mine so far (could be for everyone too).

    1. Near doesn't work properly. As in, whenever I check people's profiles when they are listed in my radius and then go look at the next person's profile there's always an error (C2-12497-3). After the error happens, nothing else in Near works and then I have to close down the application in order to make it work again.

    2. Facebook app doesn't work at all. Actually it worked a total of "1 Time" and then it never worked afterwards. I tried resetting everything and I even re-downloaded it but does not work anymore. It gives this "NP-13144-3" error every single time. (I'm wondering if everyone has this problem). Tried it out with two PS Vitas already and was the same result... error.

    According to Sony, thats a Facebook issue (Sony pulled the app from the store for that reason.) No idea on when an update gets pushed out but meh.

    I haven't had any issues with mine except for a couple times trying to connect to my wireless but that was a router issue. Need to make Near a little easier to use though.

    Just a heads up, always a good idea to check updates first thing for both retail and digital games. Surprised me today when I downloaded PvZ from the store and there was an update. Figured it would have came along for the ride.

    Oh wth! I didn't even notice it was gone from the store! I re-downloaded it using the Download list that's why. Oh well, there's always your cell phone for facebook xP

    I had it for almost an week and so far no problems at all. I'm loving it so far. Just wished the download list let me download my Yuna Outfit and FF 4,6,9, and 13 battle them for FF-DD 012.
