Paint Park, Treasure Park, Wake-Up Club Enhancing Vita

If you're a proud PlayStation Vita owner, you know about the Welcome Park application, which introduces you to the technologically slick world of next-gen portable gaming.

Now, Sony has announced three new apps that will join the "Park" series. The first is Paint Park, which is available to download now for all those who are artistically inclined; it turns that brilliant 5" OLED screen into a sketch pad where you can create and share drawings with friends. You can even use the Vita's front and rear cameras to implement photos, and there's an online multiplayer Ad Hoc mode that lets you compete with up to five friends. How creative are you?

Next up are the Treasure Park and Wake-Up Club. The former is a "puzzle-based app that enables you to connect with friends and other PS Vita owners." By using the Near application and either Wi-Fi or 3G, you can build your own puzzles and even "set bombs and traps for your friends." Wake-Up Club expands on the Alarm Clock by letting you sync up with other owners who set their alarm for the same time...which makes even getting out of bed in the morning a social endeavor!

The Vita is quite the unit, and you can bet that Sony will continue to add to it as time goes on.

Still waiting for my remote play Firmware update. I really don't want to downgrade my Ps3 to 3.55 just to use the damn remote play...


Anyways, Yeah we all know about the welcome park and we're trying to figure out how to delete it from our phone!

Why doesn't sony allow people to use this online instead of ad-hoc? "Draw with up to 5 of your friends via ad-hoc connection" - I don't even know one other person with a Vita let alone 4 others.

Vita = Fail.

Remote play works fine for me too. I can set the PS3 to wake when I initiate remote play with the Vita while on the same network and it works, if I want to use remote play while on the go, I initiate the remote play on the PS3 before leaving the house then I connect later on when I am away and the Vita is connected to the net. You must be doing something wrong if you can't get yours to work.

It's sounding a little more like Palpatations911 = Fail

Wspecially when you're force downgrading a PS3 to firmware 3.55 so that you can load custom firmware - which is the *only* reason anyone would downgrade their firmware to 3.55.

Which name would you like to be known by? Cheater? Hacker? Pirate? Or will all 3 work for you?

Sounds like you know all about hacking your ps3. I happen to know very little. :)

However, what I do know after doing extensive research on the PSV remote play feature is that if you happen to have 3.55 CFW you could register your Vita as a Mobile phone on your PS3 and you actually can use remote play. It's a bit laggy, but it works.

lastly, as far as my name goes, you can call me Palpatations911 and i'll call you fool.

*shrug*..I know that you can synch your Vita and PS3 but you can't actually remote 'play' any games which is what a lot of people bought the vita for.

Personally I don't care to transfer videos to my PS3 and then 'remote watch' them on my vita.

I just run PS3 media server on my PC and stream everything directly to my PS3 in real time. It saves me a lot of time and hard drive space. There really isn't any reason for me to stockpile media on my ps3. I keep the HD space reserved specifically for games.

Uh-huh and since downgrading your firmware that far back will leave you unable to use PSN, what exactly is the point? The point, the only point, of downgrading your firmware past 3.60 is that with 3.60 Sony re-established some level of security, so the only reason to go further back than that is custom firmware.

Yeah, I know a lot about the PS3, I know a whole lot about it's security because I've followed the CellBE design since before PS3 was a demo board with two CellBEs on it. When certain morons were hacking the firmware and security, I was following them closely so that I could actually understand what was really happening instead of the BS being thrown about in the media.

All of that is beside the point since there are very many games that will not function with a firmware that old and you lose your PSN access. So I hardly believe that you would downgrade to official firmware 3.55 simply to find a work around for what you think is a problem. Oddly enough the only information I could find regarding this topic points to a 3.55 custom (hacked) firmware hack.

So, there you are, exactly what I said, you're either a cheater, a hacker or a pirate.

Oh, and since you had so much trouble getting Remote play to work that you had to hack your PS3, maybe you should have just looked here;

I'd agree with you, but then we would both be wrong.

More of this kind of thing please Sony, and how about encouraging a few 3rd party devs to port some of the better android applications to Vita?

Nothing to do with the camera of course since you utterly failed by including such a wimpy camera. Oh well, perhaps you will redeem yourselves with an 8MP camera accessory? Or a bluetooth link option to connect the Vita to my phone for sharing pictures? This is the biggest complaint I have about Vita, why put such a wimpy camera in the thing?
