Since I didn't realize it would come up, I edited in a brief mention to Backwards Compatibility about UMD Passport.

As it stands, UMD Passport isn't coming to NA/EU but the same effect it had in Japan can be felt. The Japanese don't get regular price drops as far as I can tell on their PSN, while NA/EU have been routinely chopping prices by 10, 20, and sometimes even 50%. So UMD Passport spiritually exists on the PSN in the West, but in a piecemeal format. Sony America has just been incredibly incompetent in telling people this

And I've added everyone up to CaptainPoopsock to the Vita goon list. Remember that if you plan to use the PS3 Goons site for game listings, repost with the link to it in the future so I can update it.

It's been a while since I kept up with anything Vita-related, but now that it's properly out I have two questions:

1) Did Shinobido 2 turn out okay?

and

2) Has Konami/WayForward done anything at all to make Silent Hill: Book of Memories seem less terrible than it did a few months ago?

1) Shinobido 2 turned out pretty okay. I link a lot of people who ask this question to PlayStation Lifestyle's review of the game. It goes through a lot of the pros/cons of the game.

2) As for Book of Memories? Kind of hard to call. They seem pretty hesitant to actually tell anyone about the drat thing. File it away as terrible until proven good.

I guess I don't actually use my PSP/3DS/whatever outside the house. They're just small home-consoles to me, so I don't care about having five different platforms.

Fair enough if people actually use their on-the-go and want to be able to play all their PSP and Vita games on one system.

NYT article on Sony's marketing campaign for Vita:
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/13/b...r-out.html?_r=4

$50 million is Sony's largest console launch marketing budget ever, which is surprising. A modern big-name console title can easily cost $50 million, if you total development and marketing. Sony's budget seems really small considering it's a brand new loving console.

What do you mean you are bored by golfing? I can tell you that I love Hot Shots and I can't stand to watch the game of golf, and I've only played the game about 3 or 4 times in real life and have no real drive to do so anymore. But I also like games like Tiger Woods.

Still having trouble deciding another game to pick up with Uncharted and my Vita on Wednesday. I want online multiplayer so I was thinking Wipeout. But then I looked up some stuff on Rayman and how meaty the game is and super fun. I've never played a Rayman before (please don't hurt me) and this looks like fun foray into the series. But then there's Lumines with it's awesome music and that was one of the first games I had on my PSP and I played it a lot though don't remember too much since I only had my PSP until the DS came out. Help me pick a game!

Oh and I've already decided to buy Super Stardust.

Well, if you're bored to tears by golf then this probably isn't going to change your mind. If it helps though, I'm not really into golf myself and I'm dying to get my hands on Hot Shots Golf. I mean I fall asleep watching it for real and Tiger Woods feels like watching paint dry, but going through a colorful golf course with glowing red golf balls driven down an Ancient Chinese fairway by a big fat dude dressed as a Japanese school girl is just magical

I'd watch gameplay footage as its recorded and read reviews before taking any plunge.

Policenaut, you rock! Thanks for your hard work. Although I do believe it maybe important to note that while the Vita is region-free, almost all DLC and Online Passes are not. Also, digital downloaded titles are tied to the account that downloaded it, which makes it troublesome at times with the Vita's only one active account system.

As far as the system works, you can apply any single PSN account on two Vitas before reaching the limit. From what I've been told, it operates on the same platform the PSP does. So if you have an activated PSP, you'll need to deactivate the account.

But yeah, it should work if you activate the same account on two different Vitas, just as long as there's no PSPs connected to the account.

From my personal experience on the PS3, they will. So if you earn trophies and he earns trophies, and you both sync them on the account, the account will show all the trophies the two of you earned.

"Non-existent Titles" is apt as the vita port of akai katana shin has been officially poo-pooed

quote:

Asada says someone asked him about the game today and he was shocked, saying that's the first he's heard of it. He says it's due to some misunderstanding. The game isn't in development, nor has it ever been planned to be in development.

Details from the horses mouth here if you can read Japanese - http://cave-game.cocolog-nifty.com/.../post-9c40.html

I really really really hope we see a cave shmup on the vita though. I'm not sure how well their games would translate to handhelds but I'd certainly be willing to buy one and find out

Asada did say recently something about his team moving to “new hardware platforms they’ve never worked on before”, could just be the next playstation/xbox but you never know.

quote:

Just like Steam, the PlayStation Store will fully support every title released on PS Vita.

Steam doesn't sell every game on pc, far from it, most games aren't on there.

I think Lumines has me more excited than any other launch title. It's the only one that I've chosen to get the digital distribution instead of physical version because I'm pretty sure I'll always want it with me. Super psyched about the online leaderboards, hopefully I'll get plenty of people from here that enjoy playing it.

This most definitely has been brought up countless times in previous threads, but I hope Sony does something along the lines of releasing PS2 games on the Playstation Store that are Vita compatible. There are so many games I'd love to be able to play on-the-go. Anyhow, very nice OP, Policenaut!

Kind-of from what I understand. WIth the Vita you can only be logged into one account on PSN, and have to "reinitialize" the system any time you login with another account. Once you do that the savegames and downloaded content from the previous account will no longer work until you reinitialize to the proper account. Maybe Policenaut knows if this is the case?
