I really wish this had 4 top buttons, not 2. Back touch area isn't fun to use.

Any game that requires the use of L2 and R2 are located on the back of the handheld....

Worst possible place ever.

Every time I play a game that needs to use L\R2 I always end up touching it on accident.
To avoid doing this, I have to hold the handheld in a uncomfortable fashion that now places a time limit on my patience for tolerating this.

Usually results in forcing me to gimp my experience by disabling the touch feature which makes L2 r2 no longer available.

Or put the game down within a matter of minutes.

I tried to play Street Fighter X Tekken on the vita.

lol wasn't going to happen.
Free game or not, I deleted it because it's now unplayable.

Will this issue ever get fixed?

The size of the back touch panel is reduced on the Vita 2000 for this exact reason. I've never accidentally touched activated rear touch controls on that model.

DLC, online passes and the rise of casual budget gaming have ruined the video game industry.

If I could just stream my VITA to the PS4 to my tv I could over look this.

yeah they should have added l2 and r2 and also made the sticks clickable just like a controller.

then we wouldn't need to substitute any buttons with a crappy touch pad.

I remember Grief making a topic about a simple mod to remedy this.

If I remember correctly you need...
~PDP grips or I guess any Vita grips
~Electrical tape... I think?
~And some kind of wire?

Its on Youtube ^_^

I plan on doing the mod when I can find a nice looking skin for my Vita.

Sony should do something official. It makes so much sense.

Here's a link straight to the video.
