Preparing to download. Please wait.

I tried downloading some of the PS+ games, and this message has been on the Vita for about five minutes. Is this normal? What's going on?

Good gameplay can easily salvage a bad story. Good story can never save bad gameplay.
The best games, however, have both.

Just wait a little bit longer. I'm sure it will download soon.

It's stuck. Happened to me more than a couple times too.

Reset and try downloading it again, it usually works the second time.

Happy Gaming!

There is a known glitch. Go down to the search bar and type in Download. You'll see other topics explain it.

It's a known problem that Sony refuses to acknowledge. Power off your Vita, turn it back on and try again.

I hit cancel, and now it's stuck there. When I press the blue button I get a red minus sign in the top left corner. -_-

Don't do that.

This is a known issue happening all over the board with Vita's. There is no current permanent solution to the issue. The temporary workaround is to powercycle the device (Hold the Power Button until you get the option on the screen to shut down) and try again, though I have heard that turning on Airplane Mode and then re-enabling Wifi also works.
