Sony should consider making a Vita successor which focus on:
1. 24 hours battery life
2. PS4 remote play
3. A heavily downgraded port of Monster Hunter,
Dark Souls where the user can easily switch to the PS4 (free cloud save - local save transfer).
4. Full b/c for Vita PSN library
5. SD card as the storage because it is cheaper to upgrade than microSD
6. Non proprietary game card (standard SD card)
Let the game license be checked online once
1. I don't think that level of battery life is possible unless the console will be weak as shit. Though I agree, battery life is more important than graphics on a portable.
2. If it worked like a Swtich, that wouldn't be a USP but it would help. Just a shame I know literally nobody who uses that feature.
3. Probably won't happen, they lost Monster Hunter to Nintendo by neglecting portable gaming, ultimately hurting Capcom's target audience, forcing them to switch. Haha. Switch.
4. But you don't want a Vita card reader...? So I can ONLY get digital games? Why not PSP?
5. Yeah, a much better concept to be fair as long as they secure the device as much as possible to prevent piracy.
6. Umm, you're asking for piracy there. A standard format that'll be easy as fuck to break into and use to hack the system. Not to mention that used games become useless. Once your licence expires, the cartridge will be useless to someone else. Isn't that what caused a massive back lash for Microsoft?
Over the past 3 years I have bought a Sony tv, platinum sony ps headphones and a ps4 pro.
The tv had a good screen but the software was terrible - crashing etc - I have now gone samsung and it is great.
The headphones had a buzz in the right ear - i was told this was just a systemwide problem. Refund.
The pro is powerful but is so poorly put together - the fan is a nightmare and it is a huge clunky thing.
I am not sure I would trust sony to buy hardware from then again - something has gone terribly wrong.
You must have really bad luck. My original PlayStation from 1996 still works. My original PS2 from 2003, still works. My original PS3 from 2008 still works and my PS4 bought in 2013 is still going strong.
I had a 32" Sony Bravia HD Ready TV from 2009 to 2016 and the only reason I upgraded was because it was too small for my own house.
I've had a Sony Xperia Z tablet since it launched and it's still working perfectly.
I've had a Sony Xperia X10, Sony Xperia T, Sony Xperia Z3 Compact and now a Sony Xperia X and they've never caused any issue for me. I damaged the Z3 compact accidentally but Sony covered it under the warranty in a gesture of good will.
I have a Sony Vaio laptop from 2013 that's still working great, though the battery is wearing down but that's to be expected since I've worked the shit out of it.
Sony produce some of the most quality products I've ever owned. Though I am aware they do occasionally gaffe up. I.e. turning your PS1 upside down to get discs to work on select early/launch models.
