Sony posts list of tips and tricks for Vita

Friday, 24th February 2012 17:08 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Sony has posted a neat list of “tips and tricks” those who have picked up a Vita can do with their new handheld, and it consists of everything from how to mover your app icons around to changing the contrast and backlighting.

Other tips mentioned in the post include information on features such as Bluetooth, backing up your data with PS3, turning off the menu music, using the camera, improving the look of lower-resolution PSP games, and how to access your PS3 remotely in order to watch a video or initiate a PlayStation Store download.

This is the little handheld that could, apparently. We would love to have the precious, and since it is out worldwide now, we can.

Hit up the link for the full thing.

    I am so tempted to get this but the funds are pretty low so might wait a few months.
    Timing belt just went in car so I reckon the better half will be wanting to get that done first. ;)

    You can use transparent .png files as backgrounds for the menu.

    That basically means that you get the nice animated wavy lines with the changable colours with an image layered over the top. It ends up looking something like this :

    Its a really really neat little feature to support, I just have no idea why they never let anyone know apart from the people on GAF experimenting.

    Anyway heres a nice tumbler with a fair few nice walls :

    In order to use content from another region to the account thats associated with your Vita you need to Reset the Vita back to factory settings, add the account from the different region, add the content that you want. Reset the Vita again and then add back your original account details. All your d-loaded games are stored on the Memory Stick if you have one and save games are on the carts themselves. Its basically only your settings and account details that are removed when Restoring Factory settings.

    The Vita is just one damn awesome little machine. They really nailed it down with the design, loving it. In terms of how the Vita itself works, it’s just great. When you want to quit a game you just press one button and move the ‘page’ and the game has been quit. It all works smooth and is a joy to use. There’s been some criticism about the the UI, but i don’t see any problems with it. Very very happy with my purchase. And only for 130 euro, so that’s what i call a steal.

    Serious question how long do you guys think it will be until you can pirate games? cause the 3ds hasnt been cracked yet which is surprising.

    Excellent – useful info. Also worth pointing out you can combine the screen shot facility (PS button + start) with custom backgrounds and use a shot from one of your favourite games as a wall paper.
