Media/Internet- Better This Time?

2 replies 16 views Edited Nov 25, 2011

Are there any (English) videos/annoucements regarding this yet? If not, does anybody know enough Japanese to answer these questions?

1) How will media organization work on Vita?

2) What will the internet browser be like?

While it wasn't necessarily unintuitive to put media on my PSP, having a Mac with no software to streamline the process, the drag and drop got a little annoying. Not to mention trying to find the right video formats to compress movies at so they would look good. And please. Maybe some better music organization software this time around? Even if it's just built-in SenseMe (that's it, right?). But the antiquated folder-hierarchy the PSP used was just.... frustrating at times. It shouldn't be that hard to implement PS3-like software that allows you to switch your organization theme on the fly, right?

And as for the internet browser, I'm not asking for a lot, but the ability to access YouTube would just be amazing. The PSP's browser is more than showing it's age, it's almost unusable to me, having grown up in such an internet-heavy world. It's slow, clunky, and pretty unintuitive. And this extending beyond just 3G would be awesome.

On another note, I'm already loving the multi-tasking/in-game XMB access.

The browser has HTML5, which means you will be able to watch youtube, and other websites with vids that support html5. The internet browser is a webkit one, so it will be just about as good as the ones found on android smartphones.
