PS Vita – such a pity that the production of the console is going to be discontinued in Japan.  So many great games.  I have a stocked pile of gaming titles; even though a lot of them are collecting dust now.  If you’re asking me, my favorite genre will be DRPG like Demon Gaze and Operation Abyss.  Some action games like Odin Spheres are great too.

Now, I’m confronting with some issues about the memory card that costed me about US$50 back then.  Some game titles just cannot launch as a result, mostly the ones from PS plus membership.  It’s shared in online communities that rebuilding the database and here are the procedures that visitors may find them useful (if they have a PSV that is)

  1. Switch off the PS Vita.  Not just left in standby mode, but completely turned off.
  2. Press and hold “R”, PS button and power-off buttons for about 5 seconds.  A prompt screen will show up.
  3. Select the option for “Rebuild the database” or something.  The process will start after prompt.

Technically the procedures are safe.  Yet a bulk of my game apps disappear from the main screens after the rebuilding.  Tried several times of rebuilding and random allotment of apps show up, never the full list.  I’m convinced that the memory card is corrupted and proceed with the backup.  Thankfully, PS plus is active and I can upload the game saves while some apps are accessible.

As a side note, having the console for over 6 years, I just learned today that you can quickly access the network setting by holding the PS button…

Anyway, I think a lot of people are more familiar with PSV for this…
