I just wanted to say thanks for all the help! Bought this game a few days ago and I had a ton of questions, but it really is a joy to learn more as time goes by. My current record for years lived is 50. :)

@NobodyHIFI: Eh. The general consensus is that if someone has this problem to begin with, one system restore does the trick. Myself, the only problem I have is that my Near occasionally glitches out. Besides that, it's been perfect. The only other problem I have is that I don't have enough money to get all of the games that I want for it. It's a gorgeous, sleek machine that has a lot of power, but you have to remember that it's the first edition so it's going to have a few kinks that will need to be worked out in updates. And of course, there will be a second edition, just like with the DS and with everything else. Early adopters risk the early product.

I disagree, I don't think you need to return it right away. I know a few people who've had this problem.

Have you been using the Vita for a while, or was this your first game? If you don't have much additional content in the way of saved games and trophies, then I would just go ahead and try restoring your system first. This is done in Settings > Format. If you leave your memory card in when you do this, it will ask you if you want to format that too. So if you hit 'Yes', it will delete everything on your memory card as well. I would just go ahead and format the memory card too if you didn't have anything else yet and these were your first games. If you do have trophies and saved games, simply connect the Vita to a PC or PS3 and backup your data using the Content Manager app. Once you are satisfied that you have saved any Vita/PSP saved games and/or photos, videos and music, go ahead with the formatting process, because your data is now safe on the computer. Formatting is also said to have fixed problems with the Near GPS program, which sometimes stops working altogether for some users (myself included). People also restore their Vitas to switch between different accounts, for example to log onto the Japanese PSN and download the Gravity Daze demo. They then have to restore again to go back to their normal account, I believe.

After formatting, go back into the Content Manager app and move the content back from the PC to the Vita. If you continue to have problems, it would either be the corrupted data on the memory card or actually the hardware, in which case you should return it.

If you deleted Lumines off of your card (you bought it digitally, yes?), you can just go back to the PSN page for that game and re-downloading it. I would suggest re-downloading and overwriting because it seems it might have been corrupted for some reason.

Let me know if you have any questions, but it is a semi-common problem, especially with Unit 13.
