Its better than 2:1 odds that its something about how Sony set their region system up.
Region lock systems are always annoying. And they are quite often commercially foolish, since they are set up based on some theory about the value in things crossing region boundaries, and then the region boundaries make it harder to show that the theory was wrong.
Yeah, I don't really get why some websites and companies set up region lock,I mean I guess it's to stop people from breaching copyright, but stuff like crunchyroll on ps3 and xbox 360 for Europe really doesn't make sense...I guess I have to be glad that we at least have it on the android store
┴┬┴┤( ͡° ͜ʖ├┬┴┬ - Oh, don't mind me, I'll be here...watching.
We need for Europe please !
Yeah come on (cue Fox mcloud SSBM taunt)
Still waiting for EU Release :/
UK and nothing still, what a joke.
Just joined, need directions!
will this be made available in australia?
ITS been a goddam year now the eu + ps veta = still waiting
If it doesn't, why are there no other video apps on the Wii U?
I can cite other devices such as the WDTV Live that very likely don't have more units in the field than the Wii U, yet have more streaming video providers. Even the Roku isn't that far ahead (close to 8 million units sold as of January 2014), but it absolutely crushes the Wii U in terms of number of video providers.
Clearly it isn't the number of installed units that is the primary hinderance for video providers. That leaves the following possibilities:
1. It is considerably more difficult to develop for than these other platforms.
2. Nintendo is making it difficult or problematic for developers to get apps on the system.
3. Both of the above.
If you can come up with any other explanations that make any sense, state them.
Well those other devices are guranteed to be used for video streaming because that is what they are sold as. It might just be that the Wii U is perceived as having less user that would use it for video streaming purposes.
I'm happy to confirm that Crunchyroll app has officially landed on the UK PlayStation Store for the Vita (as well as PS3 and PS4).
While UK customers were able to access the PS3 & PS4 apps by downloading the US version, the Vita way was rather complicated so by having the app officially on the UK store saves people time!
Just tried it out on my Vita, works well and looks great on the OLED screen.
Not in the Japan PSV store yet?
Videos can stutter or drop in between or after ads when watching free / un-logged.
App is not utilizing the vita's touchscreen, yet it seems you could swipe between thumbnails - not really an issue, but does present a learning curve for those accustomed to using their smartphones.
Occasionally, the vita's buttons are unresponsive on a single-click action, but work if pressed multiple times. (Processing issue?)
Familiar UI - sharing the same exact UI with the PS4's version - can help get adjusted to it pretty quickly.
Still better than cable / satellite as far as getting foreign anime / drama.
Adding basic touch-support for the app would make it far better in my opinion.
Addressing clunky / unresponsive buttons.
Integrating a news feed reader into the menu - rather than not having one, or making a separate app.
Woohoo for Wacom!
Why Canvas 2: Niji iro no sketch not on the vita crunchyroll for?
Usually there are a few possible answers to why a show doesn't appear on a specific device:
You may not have specified that you want to allow mature content
or your default subtitle language isn't available, and you have to try a different one.
Set either/both of those here: /acct/?action=video
Or else your country isn't included in the licensing rights, which are pretty generous for that title, but still, this isn't world-wide...
