    The apps are pretty meh. I'd be pleasantly surprised if the net browser is half decent.

    Hey, you can actually message your friends unlike the 3DS. ;)

    Nothing too special regarding the apps.

    They promised it, but it's like taking forever.

    On topic: The apps are not too special, just decent.

    P4G, Disgaea 3, FFX, the 999 sequel... TAKE ALL MY MONEY.

    As for the apps, I don't really care much.

    I really want a Video app, that screen is too good to not have my HDrips be played on it.

    Before Persona 4 was announced I was still iffy about getting this but now that it is, I can feel confident about buying one and for games like LBP.

    No video support on day one means no day one purchase IMHO. I just got used to it on my PSP, the PSV has to have it too.

    The only thing I used my PSP's video abilties for was porn educational material.

    The apps are nice. They are pretty much standard, base features of the Vita, and they already offer more by miles than the 3DS applications while centering around actually communicating with your friends and other players. I'm sure the browser will be, at the very least, better than the 3DS browser. At least it better be with so much power under the hood to run it.

    Here's hoping for FLASH and maybe HTML5 support on the PSV :grog:
    I want to view Youtube videos natively on my PSV goddamnit, not with a homebrew application that only works half of the time :psp:

    Well, a Youtube app could be on it judging by the Playstation Store for Vita. It says something about downloading apps from there so there's still hope for a video player app.

    Ah man, surely they won't charge us for this?! I want it native, like the PSP had.
    Is this list of day one apps on it 100% correct?
