    The much anticipated PS Vita has certain hardware issues that make it freeze at times. It is not known as to how wide-spread this problem is. Read more at the source below:

    That's unfortunate. I was hoping to buy it early, but I guess I'll wait for more information regarding this flaw if it exists.

    Yeah, but I'm too lazy to jump into another one/start another one.

    You're using adf.ly to try and generate revenue off a source link? Not cool dude.
    If it was something like a homebrew or a tool you made fine, but it's a news article.

    This. Hopefully a mod sees it and changes it.

    OP deserves a pleasant warning, I can understand that some people want to draw benefits from the use of linking sites with adverts but I find such practices unacceptable, the source link should be replaced with a direct link to Kotaku, I have no desire to watch adverts, I want to read the article and the fact that it is likely that the OP draws monetary gain from page hits further infuriates me.

    If this is true, remember that everything has pros and cons.

    Just like iPhone 4 with antennagate but no one gives a fuck.

    Too bad Sony, I'm sure you can fix it. *nods*

    Yeah instead of being negative I say something nice.

    But hmm are we able to trace what causes this problem?

    @Fire Grey, Hmmm please don't ;) I'm a BIG Nintendo fan boy but you know. *facepalm*

    I learned my lesson on being an early adopter of the 3DS. Design flaws/glitch,etc. And limited edition bundles. I will never get this at launch. I will have my Vita when the time is right.

    But wait, if the Vita has some glitches then there may be a way to hack it trough the glitches. But we'll see how this ends.

    Thanks for the heads up, I fixed it with a proper source.

    As per the issue, at least it'll give them a chance to resolve it before the NA/EU releases. I don't have time at the moment to read the whole article and find potential theories for the freeze but I'm guessing they'll resolve it before the NA release. Let's just hope this is software based and not hardware based.

    Don't worry I don't really want to.

    Yeah it's best to stay away from consoles at launch, cause every console is bound to have flaws at launch.
