    Hi there,

    I've just got a package from Japan, featuring a blue PS Vita, with a Mini-USB Port at the bottom.
    The Video below shows you what it can do.

    This must be a Japanese-only thing since the American Vitas don't have it at all.

    GameWinner, you mean the colour?
    I guess so, I haven't found any other colour than black, here in Europe.

    No I meant the little USB thing but RyuPower already explained what it was.

    Rydian, as I said in the Video Description, the lag is caused by HyperCam.
    The speed is perfect when not using it, but FRAPS doesn't work on it, and I dunno what else I can use.

    You can select the region with camtasia too. Youtube is limited to 30 frames per second either way, so that should give the best quality possible.

    One question, is the audio transferred through the USB or a separate audio cable like the 3DS one?
    I dont mind either way :P bought an external sound card and mixer for perfect sound quality with commentary :)

    It goes via Line-In.
    Also, he did include a printed manual to it, but the English on that piece of paper is as understandable, as a dog talking to a human.

    Mind telling us the price? Dunno if that Yen to $ conversion I took was correct.

    And I assume you got the Vita with it preinstalled. Wonder how much the chip it separate.

    EDIT: I noticed some coloration when you flipped pages after starting Rayman. Is that on the Vita's capture screen?

    Its about $460 dollars mark. In pounds it came out as £315.. which I would consider extremely reasonable :D.

    So the same way as the 3DS.. What language is the software in?

    I thought $80 for an HD PVR was a lot, so I'll probably skip this. Hoping Sony would have thrown out a Component output cable like they did with the PSP. There's got to be a reason for that extra port on the top.

    Broken English, but understandable enough to know what you're doing.
    Actually, it's harder to install the Drivers (I'm on a 64-bit Windows 7, which makes the installation 3x harder).

    Edit: The colour problems are weird to me as well, it doesn't happen on the Vita itself.

    I hope that useless port on the Vita will have some similar use. Oh well.

    Well, I've fixed the problem with the colours now: Disable "Trans Mode" > "Reduce jaggedness on the [YUV] mode (still image)".

    lol, I said it was reasonable because the 3DS XL version are going for $599 english(UK/US) version.

    Sounds cool. Since its line-in, how is the audio controlled? depending on the audio level you set on the PSV?

    Audio is controlled the same way as on a 3DS, that's why I use Max. Volume, so it sounds the clearest.
