The PlayStation Vita is now available and if you've already got one, or you plan on picking one up, you could use a few useful hints and tips.
Most people don't really care about full hardware tear-downs; they just want some practical ideas that make ownership all the more appealing. Therefore, new Vita fans should head over to the PlayStation Blog and check out Sony's 9 favorite tips.
These include moving icons around from screen to screen, backing up save files by transferring them to your PS3 (sounds like a damn good idea), adjusting the screen's brightness and system volume, and creating a custom PSN panel. There are a few more advanced tips, too; ones you probably didn't know about. For instance, you can snap an in-game picture by pressing the PS button and the Start button at the same time. Also, as the Vita supports over 275 legacy digital PSP games, you can improve those lower-resolution products by activating various Settings, including "bilinear flitering" and "color space."
Lastly, gotta love that Bluetooth support! Yes, the Vita has all sorts of capability and this can really make your gaming experience shine.
