Sony's Next-Generation Portable Is Out, In Japan 134

A few months before it's due to arrive in the U.S., Sony's PlayStation Vita, successor to the PlayStation Portable, has been released in Japan. Says the linked Associated Press article: "For the Tokyo-based electronics and entertainment giant, the Vita is the biggest product launch since the PlayStation 3 console five years ago. It's also accompanied by two dozen software products — the largest number of launch titles in PlayStation history. The Vita has front and back cameras, a touchscreen in front, a touch pad on the back and two knob-like joysticks. It will enable gamers to play against each other using PlayStation 3 consoles over the Internet-based PlayStation Network, a system that was hit with a massive hacking attack earlier this year."

    You forgot one step:
    Is it a SONY product? Y - move along, nothing to see here.

    (Sorry, but it has not been long enough to forget the last screw up.)

    As a programmer, something about the way this conditional logic is specified makes me twitch.

    It's s/star/start/g that makes me twitch. If you're going to copy and paste something six times, you could at least notice that you've left a letter off.

    You are confusing copy protection with proprietary media formats. There's no correlation between the two. The drives will still read CDs, DVDs & BDs that DON'T have the copy protection, you just can't execute code without bypassing said protection. With the Vita, there is NOTHING compatible with the proprietary media format they are using. You can't get a reader & you can't get blank media.

    Dictionaries are useful tools when you don't understand a concept, even a quick google would have given you enough information to say your comment is flawed.
