    They need to update firmware to support media playback. Music, pictures and video codec and player They should also allow ps3 games to be re-downloaded and played. I'm sure it would not be that difficult to create software to support this feature. I didn't spend an absorbent amount of money to take a step back in features. Seriously the only positive is the 10% better graphics and being able to go into menu and switch back to game seamlessly.

    I don't know if this is helpful to anyone but when typing press down R3 and you'll get a motion controlled typing circle that lets you move the controller to select the characters you want to type. I didn't notice this feature until a friend told me about it. It's a little weird at first, but once you get used to it it's kind of fun to use.

    "commentate"?

    So what happens to my PS3 if I enable remote play with my (non-existing-as-of-yet) PS4, does the Vita lose it's tie to it? Can the Vita only be linked to on console or the other? Not that I use remote play with the PS3, but I do use it's Hard Drive to store my vita games and saves. I find it a better solution then deleting them off the card and/or re-downloading them later.

    This is coming a few months too late, but the Vita has separate apps for PS3 and PS4 remote play, so no, syncing with a PS4 does not lose its tie to the PS3.

    Has anyone tested how well the controller charges through a PC? Are there any issues? I'm hoping to pick one up on friday to use with games like AC4.
  • GR_RyanTaljonick - December 11, 2013 9:25 a.m.

    I charge mine on my PC all the time, works perfectly!
  • Shigeruken - December 11, 2013 7:49 p.m.

    Great, thanks! Mine just shipped, so I'm looking forward to sitting down with it to finish AC4 tomorrow.

    I still think it's fucking ridiculous that the controller only has a battery life of 7 hours. It's probably that fucking blue light that glares against my TV. Is there any way to turn that light off?
  • GR_RyanTaljonick - December 10, 2013 4:24 p.m.

    Nope :(

    I charged my controller the first night, and unplugged the cable like I do with the PS3. After playing a few hours the next day, and seeing how low the battery was, I realized it wsa foolish to ever take the cable out of the USB slot, since it'll need t go back again very soon. Charging without actually leaving the system on is nice, though. I like the rarity of trophies addition. I like the different types of trophies, and having another metric to look at is cool to me.

    You can turn it down now, but not off. Given that turning it down has made no noticeable difference whatsoever, and also because it's an LED, I can't imagine the light represents more than half an hour tops of wasted battery power. I don't know what makes the DS4's battery life so abysmal, but it's not that. Seven hours is a joke though. I have to plug mine in after about four or five. I hate leaving electronics on standby, but I may have to start doing that semi-regularly just so I don't have to deal with plugging the controller in by that super-short cord when I'm playing.

    I really do need to utilize the standby mode and cloud storage on my PS4 more often...
  • Eightboll812 - December 10, 2013 2:05 p.m.

    So all that furor over "not supporting external storage" at all, turns out to be not true? If you can copy stuff to USB, then it must support USB storage... Obviously not for DRM protected content, but that's what people like myself have been saying all along, that it likely supports USB for backup and other stuff, JUST LIKE the PS3 does, although the articles made it sound like it had no support whatsoever for external USB. This article though, makes it sound like you have to have Plus to use the USB? It says on page 12 "to utilize the latter" instead of the "former"

    Derp, my bad. Fixed!
  • nick-stancato - December 10, 2013 12:39 p.m.

    the double tap to switch applications doesn't work. I've seen this before and it has yet to work on my PS4 while having 2 apps running
  • GR_RyanTaljonick - December 10, 2013 12:49 p.m.

    Hmm, worked for me just fine
  • chad-cendejas - December 10, 2013 12:16 p.m.

    Not sure if its helpful to anyone. But the earpiece that comes with the ps4 has a mute switch on it as well. It's a little blue switch that can slide up and down.

    I still think that 3.5 mm jack in the controller deserves tons of credit for convenience, even if Wii U did it first. (Though I couldn't get all audio through my headphones on Windwaker HD) I had the house to myself this weekend so I got to remote play on Vita while watching football for two straight days, which was great. I really like looking at trophy rarity too. Just a small thing and not hugely important, but still fun to know how few others got your hard earned trophy. I didn't know about being able to edit those share button options. Very handy!
  • Shigeruken - December 11, 2013 4:01 a.m.

    Besides remote play the 3.5mm jack is one of the only features that separates this console generation from the previous as far as I'm concerned.
