Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, you may have noticed the number of stories slowing down here. Time moves on, but I'll always keep posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age.
Since I don't have the time or content for a Patreon or YT channel, please consider clicking an ad to help reach my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

Sony removes your right to play games!

After the maintenance and surprise move to open up previously unplayable PSOne and PSP games on the Vita. Someone at Sony has had a hissy fit and revoked the changes, so now if you missed out, you can't download certain games on the Vita. If you got them, then well done, you! Sony on the other hand is missing the point.

Rule one of customer experience, don't give people something and then take it away.

Rule two of customer experience, if you make a mistake explain about it, don't muck about behind the scenes.

Rule three.... see Rule one.

I see no official word from Sony about what's happening here. It can't be a licensing issue, as the games were already there. At best we can hope that someone jumped the gun. At worst, Sony has just shown they can do something that benefits users and has decided to take it away again, cue toys out of prams and a minor shit storm out of what could have been a beautiful thing. But, Sony's good at producing that sort of result, so we're kind of used to it.
