Can you only have one account per system? All my PS1 games are tied to my US account (All the ones on the EU store are crappy 50hz), am I pretty much screwed for playing them on my Vita when they add support?

Really hoping that it's just this first wave of launch titles that are going to run sub-native resolution, the Vita's screen is beautiful when it's being made the most of. I bought my system with Uncharted (sub-res) and MvC3 (native-res), and there's a world of difference in image quality between the two. Uncharted in no slouch, but MvC looks gorgeous.

I'd like to chop guys' heads off in Ninja Gaiden, but the European version is apparently censored once again. Game still owns, though.

Seriously?

Was struggling to decide between Ninja Gaiden and Wipeout... Suppose that's my decision made for me then.

Rayman is the vita title that all other vita titles should be judged by when it comes to image quality.

Downloaded the demo for Rayman, and definitely agree with this, it looks amazing. Sucks that they took out the muliplayer though, that was my favourite part about the console version.

Yep, no severed heads from human enemies (unless there's some setting I missed, but I doubt that). I assume you can still behead fiends just fine like you could in the PAL Xbox version.

Bleh, that sucks, I wonder why they did that? Sigma on the PS3 and NG2 were all uncensored in Europe, weren't they? Ahh well, it's still Ninja Gaiden, cheers for the heads-up!

This stupid thing keeps putting itself to sleep. Even if I'm idling in an online lobby waiting for a game to start. I can't find the option to fix it. Any clues?

There's an option in the settings menu to change it. Was driving me mad at first too, the default couldn't even make it through MvC3's opening video.

I love this system so much, but the whole memory card thing really is bullshit, they really should have given this thing some internal memory like the PSP Go had. It's bad enough they make you buy a card, but you can't even just stick a cheap SD card in or something, you have to buy something proprietary and expensive.

The closest to changing the sleep setting I could find was changing the screen's auto-off from 3 to 5 minutes. Is there another thing somewhere that I'm missing?

Oh, no sorry, I just set mine to 5 minutes! There might be a setting buried somewhere, but I couldn't find it either.

So do Vita trophies contribute to your trophy level? And if so, does it increase on the PS3 view of your trophy card thingie?
If I get a platinum in Golden Abyss, then people look at my profile on the PS3, will it show 20 Platinums or 19? I have 19 plats in PS3 games.

They contribute, and it'll show 20, but the actual Vita games themselves don't appear on the PS3's trophy list.

Rayman seriously gets NES-hard by the end, it's insane (and awesome). I doubt I'd have been able to do it without a co-op buddy, so good luck for everyone tackling the Vita version.

Great to see so many people picking it up, it's the best 2D platformer ever made, and deserves to sell a billion copies.

I'm almost thinking to bringing back the retail copy of HSG (I have not opened it yet)and download it as digital download to have with me rdy to play at all times. I have about 19 gigs free on the memory card and HSG weights in at about 1.15g. I think that the trade in value for HSG will be low anyways by the time the next comes out, grr to be on the fence about things like this lol

I got physical copies of Uncharted and MvC when I bought my Vita and I'm having some serious remorse about not getting digital copies. Having everything instantly accessible is much handier on a handheld.

When I read about the feature I was instantly dreaming of playing Saints Row 3 or Batman on my Vita without having to be infront of the TV, which would be great, but I should have known it was something that wouldn't be widely supported and most likely never included in anything I want. Sounded too good to be true!

Remote Play is definitely disappointing, I was hoping to play my PS3 games too
Turns out that PS1 games work with it, so I gave MGS a try, and the result is ugly as poo poo and unplayably laggy. Even if they do patch in full PS3 support at some point, I doubt the feature is going to be worth using.

I got Wipeout for the PSP during launch era... and did loving terrible at it.

I got Wipeout HD for the PS3 as one of the post-hack freebies. And did loving terrible at it.

If I got it for Vita, I bet I'd do loving terrible with it, too, I'm sure. The sad thing is, I love the style and design of the game, wish I could do better with it. Racing games bring me closer than any other game to breaking controllers / consoles though, I'm just not chancing it this go around.

For what it's worth, I had the exact same problem as you, but chanced it and I'm glad I did. I was absolutely loving awful at Wipeout HD, but I'm finding this new one to be much, much easier to get to grips with. I always thought HD felt too loose and floaty, but the controls in 2048 are much tighter.

I'm about 40 pages behind but I'm still catching up! Sorry if this has been answered already...

I'm an Aussie but I have created a US account as well to browse the store. I see that the US PSN on Vita has Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. I ended up buying it, knowing that it was tied to that account as I thought it was the only way I could play it (it doesn't show in the Aussie PSN on Vita).

Anyway, I happened to be looking through PSP games on my PS3 last night and what do we have here... Monster Hunter Freedom Unite DOES exist on the Aussie store, it just doesn't show on the Vita! I assume this is because it's not flagged as compatible, but has anyone tried it? I can't imagine why the US version would be okay but not the PAL version.

The PAL version works just fine, I downloaded it and started playing last night

Unless you are an frames per second weirdo, ignore this. Ninja Gaiden runs really smoothly. I'm up to chapter 5 or 6 or something, and I literally haven't noticed anything stuttering or not super smooth. To me the only downside of this game is you've probably played it before...otherwise it's awesome, and a great translation.

Now granted, I am much more about 'how does this feel/play' than any OH MY GOD DID THAT poo poo JUST DIP TO 28 FRAMES PER SECOND FOR A .10th of a MILISECOND!!!! I SAW IT!!

Eh, it's not exactly game ruining, but it's hard to recommend paying 30 for a port of an 8 year old Xbox game that runs significantly worse than any previous version. You might not be far enough into the game for it, but some of the later areas do suffer from some serious slowdown, not just a tiny bump.

It's Ninja Gaiden, so it's still a great game, but the Vita version is both the worst version of it, and the most expensive.

According to Ridge Racer's store description, and this is the NA PSN so it might be different but I'm guessing not, the Gold Pass is still included.

"Purchase the RIDGE RACER game today and get the RIDGE RACER Gold Pass for FREE. RIDGE RACER Gold Pass gives you access to new cars, new tracks and new music. Offer available for a limited time only, expires 4/30/2012"

Silver Pass is available too, but that actually costs money.

Just downloaded it, and didn't get the Gold Pass, so guess it's not an offer in the UK anymore

Ahh, well, only costs a fiver, might buy it anyway after I've played around with the game a bit.

Edit: Just done some digging around, and for any EuroGoons wondering, it turns out they stopped giving us the free Gold Pass on the 31st of March. US gets an extra month for some reason.

So wanting to free up some space since my 16GB card is filled up... Just wanting to double check, but if I shift some games over to my PC/PS3 with Content Manager, the saves are kept with them, right? They'll still be there if I ever move the games back?

Why the gently caress Sony didn't think to seperate saves and game data I have no idea. The Vita even does it for PSP games!
