I am suprised Sony did not issue the same statement when folks complained about dead pixels on the PSP.

"While commonly referred to as a "defect," Sony says the off-colored pixel problem is common in all LCD screens. "A very small number of dark pixels or continuously lit pixels is normal for LCD screens, and is not a sign of a malfunction," a representative for Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) told GameSpot"

Sony is skating on thin ice as it is. This is the last thing they needed right now. They're lagging behind almost every technology available and are reluctant to try anything new or innovate.

The Walkman, and then the Discman, was Sony's last big innovation outside of bluray. They lag behind the competition in almost every way, from TV's to simple electronics like headphones, they're overpriced and beginning to lose they're edge.

I'm sure a firmware update will fix most of the issues, in the meantime let's not raise a hate campaign on a product with issues on launch.

Good idea, no reason to limit the hate to the PSV only.  Sony as a whole needs more hate.

Vita... what a strange name for a "not ready for prime time" product. The name almost brings "Vista" to mind. Coincidence?

Same old story.

There is no Beta, no Product Test, that can prepare for 300,000 hands simultaneously using new technology.

Sony just can't catch a break this year.  It seems since the PS3 things haven't gone well at Sony.  All you hear is bad news.

if they look for flaws they will find it, it's almost like people are joining a bandwagon of hate on sony.

Red Ring of Death...  Point is that all systems (console or handheld) tend to suck at launch.  Their is always a problem with the software or hardware.  I always wait for a system price drop.  Not just because I'm cheap, but the bugs and issues with the system are usually fixed by this point.

Ditto. I hate buying anything at launch. Things just never seems to go right. I just let the "beta testers" (early adopters) iron out the kinks.

It always seemed to me that when there are troubles with handhelds it always seems worse.

May be due to their small size.  Smaller, more complicated parts may be more susceptible to malfunction than larger parts in consoles.
