PS+ has discounts/freebies for psp games right? It was a pretty cool service for the 30 days I got free.

From time to time, but they seem to be few and far between. Though when I first signed up, they had Valkyria Chronicles 2 and Persona 3 Portable on sale, so it was nearly worth it just to get those two at a discount.

Minis are on sale a lot, and more often then not are free. There are a good deal of PS1 classics that go on sale as well.

The video description make it sound more like the launch of a generic marketing campaign or something.

"5 cities, hundreds of kilometers, 1 PlayStation Vita... last January, Players across France were stepping up to test the PlayStation Vita a full month prior to its release. Meet us February 16 to discover this yet unreleased Players Mob on weareplaystation.fr."

By the way, my PSN is as my SA name. I'll be up and running tomorrow morning with my first edition. See you guys on the greens...

EDIT: I'll just mention the "Players" and "Players Mob" were capitalized like that in the original french... they were also in english in the original french... and then those frenchies says it's us quebeckers who barely speak french... le sight.

For people who have the system already, do you think screen protectors are a necessity? And if so, which would you recommend?

I think screen protectors are necessary on all devices now. I used to be all casual about it, then on my old DS I suddenly noticed if you tilted it into the light you could see a thousand tiny scratches. You could actually feel them through the stylus when you were playing. When I got a new DS screen protectors were the first thing I had them put on, and if applied properly you forget they are there.

When I got my iPad I didn't bother with a screen protector as I had a case for it and the screen is made of glass. No worries right? Wrong. I somehow got a teeny, tiny, little divot in the glass from something (sand I think) getting shut against it. It's small, but once seen can never go unseen.

From now on, it's screen protectors for all. The Vita's front is plastic, and will scratch. The screen is gorgeous, but the slightest unremovable physical mark will mock you for years. Get a protective and replaceable sheet of film on it or at least one of you will end up regretting it.

Rookoo posted:

For anyone who has it, is the web browser any good on the Vita?

You can't watch YouTube on it as it goes to the Flash version of the site and can't do Flash. The other problem is that you can't multitask to the browser while playing a game, the game does need to close. It can run at the same time as any other app, but of course the biggest use would have been to pause a game and look up a guide.

Both of these things may be patched, but right now they are restricting. Apart from that though, it's passable for a mobile browser. Better than the garbage on a PSP, DS, or PS3, but not quite as good as any smartphone in existence.

You can play games on the PS3 while downloading stuff, it's just that you can't play anything with an online element. So like if you play a strictly single player PS3 game with no online features then it'll work.

I hate the "online element" of this. Things wouldn't download while I was playing NHL games because they had to be online to keep you updated on current EA sales and DLC offers whether you were playing online or not. It drove me insane. I hope this is fixed with the Vita.

I've got my Vita and a memory card pre-ordered but I cant decide on a launch game. I really like Uncharted but I wanna wait until it gets cheaper. I've been thinking about Wipeout or Virtual Tennis or even perhaps Shinobido. Does anybody have any idea how many demos there are gonna be on the store during the launch window?

Alright, I'm not entirely sure about the demo situation but I know that quite a few Vita games have demos in Asia/Japan.

Gravity Rush, Little Deviants, and Uncharted: Golden Abyss all have English language demos in Asia, so it's assumed they will release at some point in the West. Sony has already confirmed that tonight North America will get demos for Hustle Kings and Super Stardust Delta. If I were Sony, I'd have an Uncharted demo out for the launch on 22nd.

edit: Both Dungeon Hunter and Dynasty Warriors have demos in Japan, so those might get Western releases in English as well.

I come to you baring a gift. Its in my diper and its not a toaster.

So I got to try a Vita at a Gamestop for about 20 mins. Tried demos of Little Deviants, Hot Shots, Wipeout, and Uncharted. Was very impressed with the hardware itself. The screen look amazing and it is far lighter than I thought it would be.

Also talked about it with a friend during lunch today. Im getting really pumped. I think Im going 3G due to all the game centric near features. Not sure how much ill use it in the long-run, but its a nice option.

Also really looking forward to e3 Vita game announcements. So many options when it comes to console franchises, PSN games, and iphone-style games.

Giving a big recommendation to Rayman. Bought it on PS3 and its amazing. Has a lot of legs in regards to total completion.

Maybe if I hope hard enough, Burnout and Mass Effect will make it to Vita.

I'm not going to be able to get my Vita until around my birthday, but I've already got my memory card! ...

Policenaut
Jul 11, 2008



Okay, I actually stopped playing my game and went to see what Vita demos exist in Asia/Japan for a better reference. These are the games in Asia/Japan that have demos.
  • AR Combat Digi Q (Japanese)
  • Dungeon Hunter: Alliance (Japanese)
  • Dynasty Warriors Next (Japanese)
  • Extreme Escape Adventure: Good People Die (Japanese)
  • Gravity Rush (English, Japanese)
  • Hustle Kings (English) [not actually in Asia/Japan, getting an NA/EU release]
  • Little Deviants (English, Japanese)
  • Ragnarok Odyssey (Japanese)
  • Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen (Japanese)
  • Shin Kamaitachi no Yoru: The 11th Suspect (Japanese)
  • Sumioni: Demon Arts (Japanese)
  • Super Stardust Delta (English, Japanese) [not actually in Asia/Japan, getting an NA/EU release]
  • Tales of Innocence R (Japanese)
  • Uncharted: Golden Abyss (English, Japanese)
  • Virtua Tennis 4: World Tour Edition (Japanese)
  • WipEout 2048 (Japanese)
Out of those games, I'd say 2/3rds of them are coming to North America. So there's quite a wide berth of games that could have their English language version release overseas or be re-released overseas in English.

I think I've decided on the launch games I'm going to pick up. Currently I am thinking Hot Shots Golf, Wipeout and Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom.

I think at this point I should just get those as otherwise I'm going to keep changing my mind constantly.

X_ThePerfect here is my Goon Database link, PSN is the same as my username here. I am also a UK goon.

I'm hoping they give us some prices for digital versions of games with tomorrows store update (I know we probably aren't getting any vita games on the EU store until next week), as the FAQ last week suggested there would be some information regarding our vita games.

Definitely getting Ninja Gaiden, Rayman, and Escape Plan. Leaning toward Super Stardust after all the positive hype. Interested in Army Corps of Hell, Lumines, and Shinobido pending reviews/price drops.

Uncharted and the 16gb card showed up yesterday. Cannot believe how goddamn small that memory card really is. That thing will NEVER leave the Vita because I will never see it again otherwise. I haven't even taken it out of the cardboard because I don't want it loose for longer than it takes to put it in the unit.

Also: gently caress this no manual bullshit. I know they are redundant when every game has a tutorial these days, but if I'm going to shell out $40-50 for a game (a handheld game, no less), can't they at least give me a nice, beefy manual to flip through? Blugh.
