Vita Unfiltered

Let’s get this out of the way – some of the links in this post are not safe for work. When I say “unfiltered” in the title, I am really saying uncensored. As in, (in uncensored mode) has some potentially interesting PS Vita wallpapers.

In the last couple of weeks I have been giving my Vita a lot of attention, and naturally I decided to spruce up the backgrounds with some decent wallpaper.

First things first, outside of the various tips you can find, I learned a neat trick that may not be documented; at least it may not be all that obvious. When you create a new Vita page, you should set the color of your page first, and then apply your photo. If you plan accordingly, you can do some neat tricks. So for example, if you are planning to apply a Hyperdimension Neptunia photo wallpaper, you can provide your Vita with nice smooth transition as you navigate to your other open apps (their background colors will match what you just selected).

While the girls of Hyperdimension Neptunia are fun to look at, I’m in love (in a totally natural, virtual sort of way) with Erio Towa from Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko. I’ll have to post my figure collection one of these days …

960×544 – How to Make a Perfect Vita Wallpaper
I’m not much of a graphics artist, so after some searching, I found this great Vita Background Generator tool, which allows you to do sorts of magic with any image that you want to put on your Vita.

I have a great (and I might add not too inappropriate) Erio Towa theme going – a cool lock screen, along with several backgrounds, including a custom a custom split three ways image via the Vita Background Generator tool.

As stupid as it sounds, my Vita is 10x neater with my custom Erio Towa theme (thanks to 6 Erio screens). Maybe one of these days, Sony will actually offer up true Vita themes, but until them, you can get creative and all that jazz.

    You have to wonder why games lineup is poor. Because maybe the third-party games developers don’t see as much potential trying to sell $50 games for a portable device in a world of free and 99 cents games for mobile devices?

    If there is a big enough market of avid gamers willing to pay for deeper handheld games with better control mechanics, they haven’t ponied up enough.

    Nintendo is doing better with the 3DS and its variants but I’ve heard security analyst types say that Nintendo is going to be a software company in 5 years, whether they realize it yet or not.

  2. The holiday season will be interesting. Big games are coming – LittleBigPlanet may be a system seller. Will it? It’s hard to say, but it is sort of like an addiction – tons of things to do and the community levels keep the game fresh, providing new experiences.

    Not sure COD will make it this year, but that one would also drive sales.

    Never been a huge Assassin’s Creed fan, but the franchise is popular enough to move the dial, unless people just are going to go for the Vita due to the cost of the system. Of course there is a bundle to help things out for fans that want to jump into the Vita for as little as possible.

    The cost of the games doesn’t bother me. Uncharted was $49 and COD will be $49, but most of the other titles start at $39. Much like any other system, you just wait for deals to pick up something at a lower price. Heck, I’m tempted to get Mortal Kombat from GameStop for $9.99 …

    Final two points that we have debated before. First, I think there is a completely different target audience between the casual fans that expect a $0.99 game for their iPhone and those that are willing to pay $39.99 for Assassin’s Creed. Second, Sony really has to go with bundles if they are not willing to lower the price. Add in a 4GB memory card to all systems along with a game + a voucher for a $15 PSN game would go a long way to helping anyone sitting on the fence.
