Does the Vita have L3 & R3 buttons?

28 replies 1092 views Edited Aug 3, 2011

I was looking over the specs and I noticed that they didn't mention the Dual Analog sticks having buttons, can anybody confirm this?

Well no one really knows at all, so WAIT for Sony to release that information. But I doubt it highly since the tech specs didn't mention it. Would have if it did most likely.

I'm certain it won't. Then again, it won't need them since it does have a touch screen.

Correction: Multi-touch screen.

And yeah, having a multi-touch screen and multi-touch pad, I don't see a problem not having L2/L3 nor R2/R3 buttons.

Yep.

You guys are wrong, it does have L3/R3 watch... pause at 0:30 theres an L3 button.

By the Gods. . .

You're right. O.O Why doesn't it list them on the tech specs though?

Yeah, pretty good find right there!  I wonder if L2/R2 functionality would be implemented in the rear touchpad, and how.

I think so, in Uncharted:GA throwing grenades is done w/ the back touch while DualShock uses R2, so I guess devs would just have to find a good way of making it work. Honestly the possibility of back touch being the L2/R2 buttons is the best part about that feature, IMO
