PS Vita buyers report freezing/touch screen problems


9:20 AM on 12.19.2011



The PlayStation Vita has officially launched in Japan, and it wouldn't be a hardware launch without some issues cropping up. Youtube videos have been appearing online since launch, as users reveal the issues they've had with the Vita -- the most common being system freezes and unresponsive touchscreens.

The more features you put into a machine, the more opportunities you have for something to go wrong. This is, of course, why your NES still works after a bit of blowing in the slot while your more recent consoles are nowhere near as hardy. With a system as complex as the Vita, there's a lot that can screw up, so issues are hardly surprising. That's not to say they're not frustrating, of course. 

Still, there are no excuses for whatever happened to this one. Ouch. 

For those who imported a system, I certainly hope it's working for you. I can't imagine how crummy it'd be to bring one in from Japan and get a dud.
