E3: Embedded battery, no video out for PlayStation Vita


You've been eating up all of the information on the PlayStation Vita thus far, so I figured you would want to give Sony's new FAQ on the system a once-over. It's full of juicy details, but here are a few highlights.

  • PSP titles, minis and PSone classics will be playable via the PlayStation Store. There are no "plans to make PS Vita compatible with PS3 or PS2 titles at this point."
  • Internal memory? "PS Vita is equipped with the storage media slot so that users can choose what memory capacity they want to utilize depending on their use."
  • Will we have to rebuy digital versions of UMD-based games we already own? "We will consider every possibility for support on bought UMD games but we have nothing to comment at this point in time."
  • No video output feature
  • The battery will be embedded because of the rear touch pad (and PSP piracy)

Give the full FAQ a read over here.
