The secret for this is you can start on Zone 4 which makes it a lot easier without built up trash from previous zones.

Doesn't look like I can reserve a Vita for store pickup at Best Buy. Any way to find out how many units each store will carry?

It's hard to tell how big or small the demand is going to be come launch day. Not sure if I should play it safe and hit the store when it opens.

Do you have the store numbers for the places you'd potentially go? They're listed with the address info on the store locator page. I can check their stocks tomorrow with those.

That being said, I'm about 90% sure that as long as you go launch day or a day or two after there won't be any stock issues. Alternatively, on the day of see if the website will let you do in-store pickup, that's only an option if there's amounts in stock (though that can gently caress up)

Store 559 is where I plan to go (Pembroke Pines, FL).

I would be mighty appreciative if you checked for me. As you said, it shouldn't be a problem, but better safe than sorry.

Is the screen on or off. If it's off and the ps button is flashing orange charge it with the wall to usb charger. If the screen is on hold the power button for 45 seconds to hard power off it.

I've been enjoying Dungeon Hunter so far. I know people have been putting DH down because of its iOS roots and has next to no story, but it's still fun to run around and smash stuff with an axe.
I'm also playing Wipeout, but I suck at it. I need to shave off another 1.6 seconds for one of the time trial trophies. It would be nice if I could just stop sucking at racing games for 2 minutes and 30 seconds.

Is anyone else having issues with ModNation's main/customization menus being kinda glitchy? It seems that tapping the screen in those menus only works maybe a third of the time. The touchscreen works great on every other part of the system, so I'm pretty sure the problem lies with the game. Maybe it's because I downloaded it via PSN and don't have the physical cartridge?

I'm in Japan and picked up a Vita the other day, gotta say I'm pretty impressed. Picked up Shinobido 2 and Gravity Daze with it. Gravity Daze is one of the coolest games I've played in a while. It really feels like the devs understand the whole point of a touchscreen in terms of menu navigation etc while not turning it into a stupid gimmick. The way the menus and maps work with the touchscreen make it feel like a really polished iPhone app.

I kinda wish I could return Shinobido 2 though. I thought it was open world, the controls are kinda janky and it's just not much fun. I might like it more when I get into it a bit, but Gravity Daze is just so good it's hard to put down.

So I'm thinking back to original PSP's launch and you have some analogues happening between launch titles. One of which I thought was funny, Dragon Hunter and Untold Legends. Both of which are terrible.

It locked up. Hold the Power Button for 20 seconds and it will go to the recovery menu. Just hit reboot and it will work. If it keeps happening when you install something, reformat the memory card.

Here's some videos of Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXxvOcQ45Uw&amp;hd=1

Just watching this video got me really mad because he's just collecting essence instead of using it to fast charge UTs. drat it all you have to do is jump then immediately hit triangle as you land to do a 0-frame charge and then just break some faces!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSEupvXrRVI&amp;hd=1

This is some French dude who got a copy early and again, it makes me totally care mad.

Anyway, this game owns and if you like action games then you should get it or a ninja will come to your house at night and kill you. You have been warned.

I went to Target today and they had it on the shelves, I picked it up, marvel 3 and wipeout, then when they tried to ring up NG "Oh wait it's street dated", they then dragged a mall cop out and took every copy and ran it to the back to hide it. It was soul crushing.

Ah, well can't help you there unless there's someone that has a surplus of the cards which is what usually happens when you get those cards cheap.

No one has been criticising the game. It's just the extortionate price hike for the Vita version that has taken some flak. It should have been a ten dollar downloadable and poo poo would have been cool.

Yeah, if it were 10 or even 15 I would have been cool with grabbing Dungeon Hunter but at $40 when you can get the PS3 version for like 10? No, sorry.

What price did you pay? I'm going in less than two weeks and am tossing up buying one locally or one from Japan. I'd its not much difference I'll go local, hopefully I can get it a fair bit cheaper than here. ($350 AUD)

The Vita is all in all fantastic, the hardware is wonderful. I do have one gripe however.

That included charger is bullshit, Sony. Nothing says awesome like a laptop-esque charger with two detachable cords.

I can live with the proprietary cards, but that charger is a kick in the nuts.

What, is it like a cellphone charger where a USB cable plugs into the adapter? That doesn't really sound so bad to me. Then again, I've been fiddling around with my phone a lot, recently, so I may just be apathetic towards the whole detachable cables thing.

Anyway, vita games are sold the hell out for miles around here. The only one I could find was Dungeon Hunter Alliance, and even then, there was only one copy left at the local Wal-Mart.

I'm guessing I should go on the 22nd and pick up Ninja Gaiden. I've missed out on Sigma once already.

Its like a laptop/phone charger, where you have a power cord that plugs into one side of the "box" and a usb cable which plugs into the other side. I don't really see a problem with it.

It was ¥22,000 from Yodabashi Camera, so about $250. I'm an Aussie too, so it was definitely the cheaper option.

My biggest gripes are that it's 1500mA and because of that it's keyed so you can't fit a regular USB cable in. I like the long cord and wish I could use it to charge my cell phone.

Picked up my Vita at lunch today, along with a second-hand copy of WipeOut. Then I got home and remembered that I won't have an online pass for it I'm pretty sure? Whoops.

That aside, dear god this machine. Was almost late back to work because of it. Loving Uncharted so far especially. Quick question; when I try to check the PS Store I get a message saying it's not available in my country/region. I assume that's because my PSN account is for the UK? It should be up come the 22nd UK time?

Oh, and super late thanks to Policenaut for keeping so on top of the thread; you're awesome!

If the UK has some sort of FEB then you should be able to access the store now. I bought mine in Taiwan a couple days after Christmas and my North American account couldn't access the store until the 13th of February or something like that.
