So my Vita just randomly shut off on me. It wasn't low on battery or anything, I just let it sort of sit there, on my desk, next to my keyboard, and failed to pay it any attention. It went into sleep mode then turned itself off, presumably to spite me, as I had just finished pushing lazy musicians onto an elevator*.
I don't think this is the first time this happened to be, but I'm glad it didn't bug out and not accept button commands (which happened) or open up a menu that let it reset itself (which also happened**). Sony really sucks at doing this whole "make a handheld video game system that doesn't suck" thing.
While we're talking about flaws in the Vita, I really hate how cartridge games are stored on the memory card/system, like the Wii (and maybe the PS3 I'unno) rather then the cartridge, like the DSi and the 3DS*** (and maybe the Xbox I'unno). Because of this I will never touch Disgaea 3 again because I will most likely have to delete all of Final Fantasy X or X-2.
Also fuck Sony and their need for exclusive equipment.
*Final Fantasy X-2, as well as Final Fantasy X, sort of fall flat in the "pushing things" department. Tidus had to deal with this in puzzles, which at least were used to overcome trials to advance Yuna's pilgrimage, so it was kind of mystical and also storyline-justifiable. Yuna, meanwhile, has to deal with less graceful things, such as pushing lazy musicians onto an elevator. Incidentally, I actually failed with this because of what I assume to be a glitch at first, because one of them wouldn't properly get on the elevator.
Also, they really have to be lazy, because those instruments can't be that heavy, because Yuna's pushing them. You know, person with one of the worst Strength scores in Final Fantasy X? (No, I don't care about dresspheres, that's magic.)
**I don't remember what other options were on the menu, just that there was an option that wasn't as bad. Thankfully, the memory card data was intact.
***And also every handheld console ever (besides the PSP, but the PSP was stupid), but only the DSi and on had SD cards, at least on the Nintendo front. Of course, the DSi used the same games as the DS, so the only real example is the 3DS...which uses most of the same hardware as the DS. So really, there's no real example, but the Vita is still useful.
