well, we didn't really need a radio
you could just go and buy a cheap one
but all the same, a radio would be cool Smiley Happy

The WiFi+Bluetooth chip in the Vita can also Recieve and Transmit FM Signals.

It's just one of those things Sony didn't implement. It's possible that the supporting hardware for the FM part is omitted (no antenna, no oscillator and no misc. components) so that they just didn't activate it.

 

 

Would have been nice to stream music to your car's stereo or a big radio in your room via FM.

Yeah, Cellphones have it!! how come Vita don't. it'll be cool, so we can listen online radio on the go..

Personally I 'm used to listen to my radio station when I'm drivng to work or out of work, since now that I don't wanna drive anymore and decide to take the Metro rail i'll miss my favorite radio stations, and I don't want to use my Cellphone juice. So it'll be a great idea if they manage to implement an app for that.

Have you tried the free trial to music unlimited? If not you should, I think that's what you're looking for. I use it and its great.

There are a lot of things, but I think that what need to be done ASAP is support of Dualshock 3 or two via bluetooth.

It may sound crazy at first, but there are not so many vita owners around, so it would be useful to have a chance to play with your friends on your vita.

Also there are a lot of intresting fightings and other buttonmashing-demanding games on the console, so I would prefer to change my gamepads when they are done for, not my vitas.

It shouldn`t be hard - vita have standart bluetooth protocol, dualshock 3 work via bluetooth, so why not?

Does anyone else think so?

IMO, first it needs battery life then we can start adding more stuff. It's hard to grind RPGs (I'm looking at you Disgaea) when the battery only lasts 3 to 4 hours. I love the PSP's 8 hour battery for this.

Aren`t there portable battery packs selling already (2-4 hours of gameplay)? Though I can`t remember where I`ve seen them.

Also there should be removed download limit (20 mb) via 3G. Or at least explain why it is implemented.
