    You cannot web browse while playing games

    PlayStation Vita can't open web browser while gaming -Destructoid


    You won't be able to access the PlayStation Vita's web browser while playing a game. Not right now, at least. Outlet Watch Impress had to update a story with a correction from Sony on browser use, and that correction said that the browser cannot be opened during a paused game. Of course, the other OS functions, like game lists, friends, Twitter, music and more can be accessed, but the web is a no-go right now. If you're needing web access, you'll have to exit the game.

    Dealbreaker? Nah. Just a bit of a bummer.

    This could change, though. Andriasang says that the wording of Sony's correction suggests that this is an issue that could be fixed with an update later.

    I don't know if I'd be using the web browser while gaming. So I don't really care.

    Hopefully it can be patched in. Whilst I don't think it's something I'd be using often it would be good to pause the game and check something up on gamefaqs.

    Not a necessity but useful.

    I can't surf the web and game at the same time? Oh god, now I'm never going to pay Sony one more cent because they have inflicted this horrible torture upon me.

    Much point?


    It'd just make it a hell of a lot quicker and easier for people to just google collectibles or what to do/where to go next instead of figuring it for yourself....




    ....okay, collectibles may be plausible, but some are actually worth finding by yourself, y'know!

    The only time I can see this affecting me is if I need to see a guide for a game (collectibles, trophy guide, etc). They did say they can just patch it though, but even if they don't, I don't really care.

    Not a big deal to me. I usually don't need to use the browser anyway, and when I do, I can turn off my game to do it.

    you can't even browse the internet while playing games on PS3 so I didn't expect it on Vita. I use my laptop anyway

    It all depends. You can from PS Home.

    It's not really a deal breaker though since depending on the web page it could utilize a lot of memory and bring the system to a halt.

    I was bummed the PS3 didn't have this feature back when my laptop was broken, would have made RE5's BSAA emblem's a whole lot easier to find. Otherwise, it's a redundant feature for anyone with a computer on the side.

    But for the Vita? It's a portable platform, so it might be nifty not to have to exit your game for a guide on something while in a car or outdoors with no computer in sight. But I won't be as spoiled to demand my googling take a minute less.

    Yeah, i have a mobile with internet and a laptop, so it's certainly not causing me to gibber and foam at the mouth with unconditional rage but i'll let you know if that changes.
