    I know some people already know this but for those who don't know, here is the bad news.

    The source is the Aus site so tell me if it redirects you somewhere different.

    Edit: The info on the battery is on the bottom of the page.

    This didn't really need a new topic, it was already mentioned before multiple times. And yeah basically if your battery dies you go send it to sony and they will charge you etc.

    Actually the only thing I have ever seen is speculation that it wont be removable.

    Never seen it confirmed once, at least here.

    I wouldn't be surprise if hackers or whatever find away to open it up. (disregarding warranty)

    It has to be a way to open the psv.

    Trying to avoid another "Pandora's Battery" fiasco I see.

    Ehh, I probably won't get a vita till it's hacked anyway, but I can see how this may put a damper on hackers.

    Is the FAQ somewhere here? I guess you mean the Sony site. If so
    not many people got the message here since I still always see people
    hoping that it will be removable.
