what’s interesting in that video was the shot they DIDN’T show.

Not a single show of the AR with the console in view. Any time you see the vita itself it’s on the game’s backgrounds. Because in real life the camera’s line of sight is going to be terrible for this. You’re not going to want to play a fighting game with “see thru” backgrounds. Let’s be honest about how we’re playing this thing. Most of the time it’s going to be pointed at our laps. You don’t play a handheld pointing outward. Even when you do.. you’re not going to have those lovely clear wide views to play in. Fighting games require speed and precision to be fun much less competitive. AR will work on games that are designed for it the see thru backgrounds are the definition of a gimick. I’d rather see a trailer where they showed I could play my own music. How about that little feature that noone ever wants to talk about?

    Home HAS gotten a lot better than … when it was new. Sure we’ll never have the fun we had with proximity mics again but still it’s improved vastly. It’s still too much of a pain to be fun. That’s why I’ve never even known about those furniture limits. I’m not buying things in home because I’m not having enough fun because it’s so much of a pain to get to home.

    That’s the thesis right there.. Home is so hard to get to and that leads to b which leads to c which leads to d which leads to noone is in Home.
