Dear Playstation, 

 

Id buy a Ps Vita, but the gui is so childish. Idk if the japanese think its cute looking but everytime i have the money i think of those bubbles and turn away. Either change it or have changable user interface options. 

 

That is all. Good day.


If some bubbles turn you off to the Vita, then you mustn't really want one to begin with. Seriously, that's gotta be the dumbest argument against a Vita I've heard.

The latest GUI update made the bubbles look nicer.

 

Bubbles are different, that's why they seem "childish" to the OP, I venture to guess. Most other devices have icons that are square or square with rounded corners.

 

Simply having circle icons or bubbles (choice of which one) would be appreciated.

 

Bubbles are not Child-ish, per se, just an odd style compared with other devices interfaces, some of the bubbles are pretty garish (Party app, for instance, Friends, as well.) Ultimately it may or may not be a choice that we have, but maybe they'll gives us some kind of "theme" ability, which might change the look of icons, a wish, a hope, not a certainty.

 

I have circles and squares and other shapes as icons on my Windows Desktop. I have something similar on my Android devices.

 

The Bubbles are dimentionally frustrating to me, atimes, the look of them does grate on my nerves, but I accept it since it is what it is. I really wanted folders and now I have round folders, that really bugs me but I live with it.

 

The PS Vita is oblong with round sides. I think they wanted to repeat the round look. Nice rounded corners of squares would echo it just fine. 

 

Sony using bubbles is a way to put any icon into the interface, whether it's a PS Vita game or app, or mini or psp or ps1 title. FWIW

I do want a vita, just like i want an ipad but i cant stand the ui. Its the same reason i threw out my 360. 

Me buying a vita is like owning a jet black mustang and having a bubble pattern through the whole interior.

You wonder why no one really has a vita? Its because the ui is corny.

 

Go somewhere else boy

The PSV's UI sucks, smartphones' UI are way ahead of it. Even the PSP's UI was better. The PSV's is clunky and wastes space, not to mention that you can't have more than 100 icons. That said, you'd be dumb to pass on the PSV for its retarded UI~.

Your preferences are your preferences. It's just that regardless of a device's capabilities, no matter how good they are, you won't purchase it because of the interface. I don't like the UI that much either, but it's surprising to me how strongly you feel about the UI. I don't see it as a big deal.

1. A Vita should be bought for games.

2. You "suffer" the UI for all of two seconds as you click a bubble.

3. You're in the game and no longer see/use the Vita UI you loathe so much.
