Because we totally need to make our Vita replace our phones.......
seriously, if you want to text, you use a cell phone.
I actually agree with the OP. I know cell phones are much better for texting, however I'm planning to ditch mine at the end of the month. I'm on disability right now so a phone is a cost I really don't need.
Uhm /looks sheepish/ Yeah the PSN messenger system. Total brain fart. I'm an old geezer. I'll blame my pain medications for that brain dead moment. But the following is still valid
I look at it like this, the more the Vita can do, the more likely it'll appeal to people and sell. Granted there are a lot of things that most of us would not use or want, but if it helps drive the Vita's sales, why not?
You can text your friend using the PSN it even has threaded messages. It works over WiFi and 3G.
/facepalm/ Yeah uhm /looks embarrassed/ I forgot about that.
/hangs his head in shame/ Just ignore parts of my last post.
i heard or read somewhere that the 3G version of it actually has a phone number you can text with...it is under System settings i believe. but it only works on the 3G version if i remeber right. i only have the Wifi version so i cannot confirm this.
