It tends to happen with new hardware. Maybe it's good news for North American gamers; by the time the PlayStation Vita gets here, the issues will have been completely resolved…?
Not long after a great many stood in line to grab Sony's new portable unit, the complaints began to hit communities, forums and Twitter.
As reported by Engadget , annoyed consumers reported unresponsive touchscreens, software bugs, and total system freezes. You can see an example of one such freeze in the video below. We assume other videos are floating around, too.
Sony quickly issued a public apology and a software update to deal with the problems, which will hopefully erase the backlash. There's little doubt that new high-tech gadgets frequently encounter issues during their first few weeks at market, but we can still understand a gamer's frustration.
It's why many consumers like to wait a while for a new piece of hardware to stabilize, so-to-speak. …or am I the only one who does that?
