So after taking the new app for a spin the product is certainly worth all the wait. Fairly fast load times and flippy fast browsing ability. This is considering that I'm on a fast 85 down connection. The only grip would be that the back light flips off when I'm not holding it and its a slight annoyance.

Here's the kicker though.

The app has pretty much ruined watching anime on any other device for me because now I'm just thinking - it could look insanely better on the vita.

I swear , its like the OLED screen on the VITA is powered by something akin to unicorn blood. The color reproduction on it is mind boggling. Theres close to zero ghosting on it so the motion always comes in super clear and unblurred so you can really pick up on the fine work in key frames. Most TVs - flat screens - average grade displays will do an ok job of color reproduction. The usual big hitters being the apple cinema displays and IPSs . But you get massive ghosting on IPS screens and the cost of an apple cinema display is bonkers insane. Even on my high end Asus 144hz refresh monster it can't match up to the even tones of the tiny OLED.

I honestly can't wait for a future where OLED is a standard. Its freakin beautiful.

I was using CR on my vita on remote play (PS4). Really not much of a difference except that now there's an official app. It is the same and welcome to the brotherhood of fat pipes I have 100 down. On another note I'm glad I didn't get the second gen vita.

My only guess is probably due to platform restrictions as its the same for other on demand services on other devices such as the xbox and such. Who knows what gets said in the legal back rooms >_>

YUP

On the other hand it is on the upswing now with lots of other stuff getting released domestically like Danganronpa and the FFX HD remaster with a new update score. Toikiden just launched for the monster hunting crowd ( I"ll still be playing MH on my 3ds until something hits the vita) On top of that PS plus gives out lots of free games in its membership so its not too bad as last month I got SF vs Tekken for free.

Big releases around the corner would be of course https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9Ql9fhI6lM XBLAZE being localiazed with the original voice track intact and the second Danganronpa game which hasn't been fantranslated.

The biggest issue being that out side of this most original IPs (not ports) are hard to find on the platform in the US.

If you're import friendly though theres a huge library of stuff . (mountains and mountains of VNs)

I don't have a Vita, but the same thing happened when I got the Roku. I couldn't stand watching Anime on my computer anymore now that I can watch everything from FUNi and CR on my nice 50" HDTV.

This I personally have to disagree with... Of just what is out for the Vita along with all the recent announcements of games. I really want to get a damn Vita.

Given quite a few of these games are in Japanese and probably will never have an official American release or English release. But that doesn't bother me.
