    This is becoming really annoying in my opinion, and I think it's something that could be sorted out pretty quickly.
    The PSP and PS Vita subforums have the same icon, and it's confusing. I can't tell which one they belong to on first glance.

    A Magician never reveals his secrets. :teach:

    That's because it's not been added. (Yet! :unsure:)

    Thanks. :)
    Alternative forums for revisions are unlikely, and useless, though, because they only differ in look (maybe hardware idk), but are the same, or have minor differences in software.

    Because it's more personal that way.
    It's not like there's a whole company behind that profile. ;)

    To be honest, is true most of them do have different models that do the same thing, either way is still different. If it was up to me, i would have different sections for each model.
    old 3DS > Forum
    New 3DS > forum
    PSP > forum
    PSP go > Forum
    PSvita > forum
    PSTV > Forum

    The fact that we acknowledge it exist instead of just saying "Is the same thing" Which most of it is true cause of how it works but is enough in looks and functions to have is own category, it can also help organize things and have more accurate representation of what you need help with, reduce noob friendly messes

    Example is having posted in PStv place people know you would talk about PSTV and not vita to either get help, guides or what not for it. To many this simple concept sounds kinda ridiculous, but i dunno, everyone has their own organize techniques. :P

    Huh, so I noticed my Vita icon was a little too wide to fit in the Latest Content list.
    This should be better now:

    just tag one or report it.
    To be honest i wish my vita had a wider screen, i am not sure of the resolution of the VITA or 3DS is but i think both should be least 720X480 Or a bit bigger. The vita is 544P or something, i think it claims to have HD but that dumb. the Top screen of 3DS is like 400x240 which is just pathethic. Hard to make 3D games look good. Only 2D games should be used on such low resolution. That why only 2D sprite games look so well compared to some 3D polygon based ones. :unsure:

    Vita's screen is 960x544. 3DS's top and bottom screens are 400x240 and 320x240 respectively.

    But don't forget I only shrunk my icon so it can fit on the portal. Doesn't have to accurately represent the console! ;)

    Whatever, they both still suck. 720x480 is still moderately okay. I don't really know much about the aspect ratio of things. Except old school is 4x3 and HD new is 16:9 But Standard Deph is like 720x480 wides screen 16:9 So pathetic how 3DS isn't even close to PS vita. I even with the XL model. If the screen was just maybe 2 inches or 3 bigger for both consoles, and can least get 600P that be good enough. :P

    *Turns on fanboi voice*
    Uhh... actually, if you add up the 3DS's resolution, it actually has... uuh... 800x480 pixels!!
    Oh wait... That's still worse than the Vita. :rofl2:
