All I know is that the few friends who did buy one, and stuck with it, still enjoy the Vita immensely. Sure, there were those who only got one for the much-promised-barely-turned-up-then-buggered-off-big-name-franchises, and left disappointed.
This blog has been a celebration of those many ups and downs, but given all the post-launch doom and gloom, I'm both impressed and surprised to believe it (both Vita and the blog) have a couple more years in them yet.
If we're allowed a couple of Vita birthday wishes to Sony and other relevant parties...
- The Netflix app for Europe please.
- A firmware update for automated Twitter screenshot sharing.
- Release the source code for the Uncharted and Killzone engines!
As for that Vita, all pixels still functioning, battery still doing well, sticks still intact, many journeys survived - truly a top piece of engineering.
