Vita Won’t Let You Browse The Web While Playing Games

December 4, 2011 Written by Rae Langdon

We previously covered some of the awesome multimedia functions of the PS Vita, like being able to play music while playing your games. Unfortunately, this multitasking ability does not extend to the built in browser.

Similar to the PlayStation Portable, you will have to exit out of your gaming session in order to surf the web. I’m pretty sure that if Sony gave players the ability to surf the web while gaming they’d be dying a lot more. – you can’t exactly complete a game of WipeOut while looking at hilarious pictures of cats.

If you absolutely must do multiple things at once, the PS Vita will allow you to access music, Twitter and your friends list while playing games. Sony may patch the web browser to work alongside games in a future firmware update, but are you annoyed at the initial lack of support?
