Also, though I couldn't really get into it, a lot of people consider Persona 4 Golden THE must have game for the Vita. You have to like jrpgs though. And I forgot to mention Tearaway -- it was made specifically for the Vita, but was so well received, it is now coming to PS4.

The other games on sale that you should take a closer look at imo are Dragon's Crown, Lumines,

Besides Wipeout 2048, LBP Vita, Persona, what else is Vita specific? I don't care for anything less.

You may already have Dragon's Crown if you were a Plus member and put the PS3 version in your download queue when it was free a few months back. Though not Vita exclusive, it's considered a top game for the console as Mikazaru indicated.

Yeah, I used to buy a lot of games for my Vita (on release day too), but so many of them ended up being free with PS+, that I don't buy nearly as many as I used to and always wait for a sale now. I forgot that Dragon's Crown was a PS+ game.

Cravit8, just make sure the game doesn't have PSP or PSOne in the description, if you don't want to settle for lower res graphics. I noticed that Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars doesn't have it in the description on the Vita Store, but it is actually a PSP game. This is unusual though. I prefer to use the web store anyways, to avoid having so many email receipts from Sony.

Fat Princess is free.
But I have like 100 of those kind of games on my iPad.

I'm enjoying the Vita. First time with it today with 9 hours of usage on a road trip.
But it's so weird, I have mixed thoughts on it. The graphics are so similar to my ipad 3 games, that I feel the only reason I'm digging it is because of physical buttons and tiny thumbsticks, and that makes me feel like I bought a $200 pair of thumbsticks.

And what the frell the wifi chip is the weakest one I've encountered since 2004.

Pinball is _awesome_ on the Vita. Way better than the PS3.
(ps3 flippers lag a bit).

Of course the PS4 is slightly ahead with better visuals and latency is gone, but, it's not portable.

Since you can do PSNow on your Vita, It has just been given new life. Played The Last of Us on my Vita last night.

Awesome.

Stand tall and shake the heavens...

CRAP! I missed out on that one too. I have the PS3 version, but I didn't realize that it wasn't a "Cross Buy" and I never added the Vita version to my cart.

Question:

I have all the Star Wars tables purchased on my PS3 / PS4 for Zen Pinball 2. On the Vita, I have the first 3 tables available on Zen Pinball 2 and to play the other 3, I have to install "Star Wars Pinball 2". That's really annoying since they both take up 200+ MB on my dinky 8 GB card.

Is there any way around this?

So glad I got wipeout 2048 and many others for free with PS+.

Am confused on the pinball games though, Zen Star Wars 2 and Star Wars pinball don't seem to want to install at same time. But they are listed as different games.

Go to the store and the tables from Star Wars Pinball should show up for free in Zen Pinball. There's no need or reason to have Star Wars Pinball installed concurrently. If that doesn't work, make sure you post a score on the tables in Star Wars Pinball and then try to import again.

There is if you are going for the two different sets of trophies. I liked the trophy list in the standalone Star Wars pinball game (which was free for Plus members), so that's what I installed on my Vita. On my PS3, I played the Star Wars tables within the Zen Pinball 2 framework, though I don't see any reason why I shouldn't be able to play it both ways on the Vita.

BTW, I killed your Darth Vader high score on my Vita.

Uncharted: Golden Abyss is one of my favorite Vita games. I picked it up free from somewhere, can't remember if it was bundled with the console or a PS+ freebie.

When PS+ was first expanded to include the Vita, Uncharted: Golden Abyss was one of the free games. (Another one was Gravity Rush; those two games were what prompted me to become a PS+ subscriber.)

That's what I'm trying now.

Also, I purchased the 3rd Star Wars pack and the South Park pack on my F'n PS4 and I just found out if you purchase on the PS4, you can't import to Vita or PS3. You HAVE to buy them on the Vita or PS3.

UGH

Update me on your findings, thanks.

I wasn't really interested in a vertical style game being played in landscape mode till I realized the vita can be rotated.

Disappointing news:

Maps is getting erased from history with the March software update, which will, naturally, also kill the geographic elements of the Near social gaming app. YouTube, meanwhile, will stop working on April 20th, although the app itself is being pulled from the PlayStation Store from today.
http://www.engadget.com/2015/01/28/p...utube-no-more/

I never used those features -- I just use my Vita to play games -- but it's sad to see Sony actually reducing the functionality of the Vita.

Ehh...

Never used Maps, tried Near and thought it was stupid because it kept showing myself as the person playing the games in my area.

I can get Youtube on my other devices, same goes with Netflix.

Just let me keep playing games on my Vita.

My old Atari Lynx can do that too. It's a nice option for games like Klax.

Sony’s mini app store, PlayStation Mobile, is to close this July and has already ceased support on Android devices.

There will be no new content after July 15th and from September 10th PlayStation Mobile will close completely, which means you will not be able to re-download any games you have purchased in the past.

Despite proving popular with developers – there were ten games released on PSM last week – it seems Vita owners have not embraced the platform, possibly due to the pricing of games which are regularly higher than those on iOS.

It’s another loss for the PS Vita but as very few used it, perhaps not a great one. I suspect the service is the victim of the re-invention of Sony in to a leaner, more profitable company, will you miss PlayStation Mobile?
This is my fear about the digital future. EA did it with Tetris on iOS (forcing you to buy the new version) and now Sony is closing Playstation Mobile, not allowing you to re-download your games after September. Even with a 64 GB memory card, I'm constantly juggling content on my Vita. Everyone with PSM games better back them up onto their PC/PS3.

Update: Steps you need to take in order to keep your games.

http://community.us.playstation.com/.../td-p/45023971

Quote:
Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) has announced that PlayStation®Mobile (PSM) will cease distribution of content after July 15, 2015*1 and in-app purchases/re-download of purchased content will be discontinued after September 10, 2015.

In addition, “PlayStation®Mobile for Android,” which allows consumers to access PSM content on a variety of PlayStation®Certified devices, will also be unavailable for download after September 10, 2015.
Consumers will still be able to access and play the PSM content they have purchased, after September 10, 2015, by activating their devices*2 using the instructions below. Your device must be connected to the Internet in order to activate your device. Previously, content was automatically authenticated whenever the device connected to the Internet, but this will not happen after September 10, 2015.

Steps on activating your device:

For PS Vita users: You will need to complete the device activation process by performing the steps below between March 10, 2015, and September 10, 2015:
Go to [Settings] > [PSN℠] > [System Activation] > [PlayStation Mobile] > [Activate] > [OK].
For PlayStation®Certified device users: You will need to open up the PSM app and launch any purchased PSM content between April 10, 2015 and September 10, 2015*3 to complete the content authentication process.
Please ensure that you have downloaded all of the games that you want to keep. After September 10, 2015, you will not be able to re-download your purchased content.
Devices that are not authenticated prior to September 10, 2015 will be unable to access previously purchased PSM content after that date.

We would like to sincerely thank our dedicated PlayStation fans and the development community for their participation in PSM.

Yeah I remember that. I'm not expert, but I think it's more that the ports necessary for PSN are not open rather than specifically blocked.
