    If you manually stick it in standby then it stops downloading, but if you leave the machine so that it auto-standbys then it seems to keep the download going.

    Had it a day now and these have probably already been suggested, but i'll say them anyway. In no particular order:

    1) The cameras are of poor quality, though that's more a hardware issue than software.

    2) The rear touchpad is too big and the plastic bits where you're supposed to grip are too small and too far apart. Having had a quick go on the fifa demo i was constantly touching the rear touchpad.

    3) This one is probably the most important for me at the moment, no playstation plus support. Having paid for a renewal on my subscription recently, not having any discounts or freebies is a bit of a negative.

    4) Following on from 3 is the lack of minis support for people who downloaded using plus. A quick google says Sony are working on resolving the issue but most of the articles are from a few weeks ago. Pull your finger out Sony.

    5) No PS1 support. Similar to the minis issue, but something i'd like resolving soonish. I could use my PSP for both 4 and 5 but i want to see the games on my vita with its oled screen.

    6) From what i could tell on the facebook app there was no chat facility. You can use messages but it doesn't work as well as chat, plus on chat you can see who's online.

    7) Having to use the touch screen to navigate the home page amongst other things. I'd like the option to use the analogue sticks or the dpad to move around or at least have the option to do so.

    8) The position of the right analogue stick is too close to the X, square, circle and triangle buttons. Slight design flaw there for me.

    9) The select and start buttons are too small and should be raised slightly. It's awkward to press them at times. Fortunately you don't have to use them all that often.

    10) Turning bluetooth off only for the machine to switch it back on when i switch it off and then back on again.

    11) Instead of having to connect a USB cable to my PS3, why isn't there a way to transfer files wirelessly? Seems such an archaic way of transferring data.

    These are all minor things but otherwise i'm impressed with my Vita and it's an excellent bit of kit.

    Turn that shit right off! Was the first thing i did when i bought the game. i knew it would work out to be a gimmick for me aynway, theres just no comfortable way of holding it and using it.

    you do know that it will only shoot if 1 finger is touching the rear touch pad right?

    Switched accounts on my Vita for the first time last night, and I can see it becoming a right pain in the arse if my other half wants to play more often than once in a blue moon. Why they aren't including multiple account support is a mystery to me.

    From the new firmware notes:

    The System Music setting in Settings > Sound & Display now affects BGM in PS Store, near and Sign-Up screens as well as the Home menu.
    Thank fuck for that.

    no just move one of your fingers to where you want to shoot and move all the others off of the rear touch pad, then let go with the remaining finger when you have the right amount of power for your shot.

    I've got the 3G vita and you can receive texts but not send them. Not sure why you'd want to text but I tried to see if it would receive and it does!

    I think this just started with the new firmware but i have auto standby set at 10 mins but the screen dims after 1 min. In game during a cutscene or waiting while enemy moves and the effing screen dims. Can't find any option to turn off?

Also on a sidenote i just turned my xbox on for the 1st time since last october and man the xbox dash is so so much better then the psn, Sony really need to get there finger out, The vita has great potential but cant see Sony doing much about it.

    I'll say the same thing as what I said to people whining about the "lack" of Vita game releases.

    IT'S ONLY BEEN OUT A FEW MONTHS! Give it bloody chance!

    Wasn't so much on about games, more the fact that for a games/media player the media side is shite, absolute wank browser and no flash player is ridiculous in this day and age, just doesn't bode well, mayber 2 yrs down the line.Also having to plug in your vita with usb to use the media manager ,what year is this, 1999, thought we where in the wireless age, all silly little things that drag the vita down.

    @ Vh your only a ps3 fanboy ;)

    I dislike the fact that everything involves touching the screen. I prefer the XMB layout of the PS3 and PSP and hope that Sony allow us to use it in the future through a firmware update.

    I want an option to automatically sort apps and games alphabetically/date created etc. It's a chore having to do it manually by switching those stuppid bouncy icons around.

    Most importantly, I want Sony to stop dicking about and let us use more than one profile to sign in with. Either that or they let us use content dowloaded from another account like the PS3 lets us. When they eventually implement PS1 support I'll be screwed because all my PS1 games are from the US store but my Vita is tied to my UK account. I know I can take the long route of restoring my Vita and using a different memory card but that requires you to have a wi-fi connection to deactivate your system and is a right ball-ache to do. I want to have access to my PS1 games without having to piss about with memory card swapping and time consuming system restores. The PS3 allows multiple account sign ins, so the Vita should too.

    Apart from that there's little else that's bothered me. I'd like more apps but I'm sure they'll come with time so apart from some improved functionality mentioned above, the Vita is damn near perfect as it is.
