Demo yes, but not buy now at $35. Ouch. Going to give PulzAR a shot this weekend.

Theirs already talk of a special bundle deal for Sly Cooper so it wouldn't be surprising to get the PS Vita version for free but their appears to be a new survey that claims it might happen very often if you are a Plus member.
http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/06/13/survey-hints-at-gran-turismo-vita-new-ps-plus-features

This is definitely what it needs in case people try to choose 1 or the other but it's true that you might own the game only until your Plus subscription runs out. That's what I'm expecting at least.

It would still be nice if Sony releases a new 64GB card for $100 and lower the retail of the 32GB down to the 16GB level.

The more this happens, the better. Sound Shapes also sounds like it will go this route. You buy the game for both platforms and just pay the $15 once. That's what will sell more Vitas.

Based on the mixed messages early on, I can only imagine that there was some massive internal debate at Sony over the pricing structure. And now that Sony is seeing the troubled state of Vita sales, those who originally pushed for dual-platform pricing are getting their chance to step forward.

Again I agree competely. You make those games pay-once-get-both and eventually people are going to start wanting Vitas. I know it makes me very happy when I can purchase a game just one time and get it on both.

Valve and Apple are leading the way with this kind of multiplatform purchase (with Steamplay and Universal apps, respectively). If Sony can get its act together, they can ride the wave, too. tongue.gif

A direct port of the PS3 version would be a wonderful thing, but that isn't the rumor... I just have my worries, knowing that the installed base of Vita is so low. I'm sure EA committed to giving Sony a Madden for the Vita, but they might be really regretting that decision because of the low installed base. I could easily see them try to do a quickie port of their iOS version to save money, and basically sh*t out a Vita version without much effort. That would be a major bummer if true.

I just finished the story mode of Mortal Kombat. That was really fun! I am now looking for my next game. I have never played any Metal Gear games. Any recommendations on them? What are they like?

The Metal Gear series are steath-based espionage games, with long but interesting and well-written cut-scenes. I just started Snake Eater (#3) on the Vita HD collection, and so far it looks like an excellent port.

Hard to describe succinctly. They're stealth action games. The story is like Rambo on acid. It's a wild, wacky Japanese take on American Cold War military culture--with frequent forays into bizarre philosophical mumbo jumbo. Just go with it. There's nothing else out there quite like them.

The first Metal Gear Solid game was well known at the time for using elaborate in-engine cinematic sequences. It was groundbreaking at the time. Subsequent games haven't been as groundbreaking, but they've kept up the elaborate cinematics and convoluted storyline. Some folks find the cinematics and storylines undigestible. I think they're fun and ridiculous. They're also surprisingly smart, if indulgent.

Start at the beginning and play them in order. I still think the first one is the best (with MGS4 a close second), but most other folks seems to really love MGS3. Regardless, these games are classics. The controls are a bit clunky by today's standards. Well, actually, they were even clunky in their own day. But they're still damn good.

That's a pretty good description. cool.gif Seriously, if you are a gamer, you should make it through at least one Metal Gear Solid game to put perspective on your hobby.

An alternative to starting with Metal Gear Solid 1 is to start with number 3 (Snake Eater) because it's the first in the series chronically, set during the Cold War in the mid-60s. Just know there's some references to "future" characters and events from the earlier games that might be missed on someone that hasn't played those games.

I'd try to rent the Metal Gear game before buying, because it's one of those type of things that people either love or cant' stand. People either worship at the alter of Kojima, or they wonder what the F everybody else sees in his work. I'm in the latter group.
post #792 of 1725
Thanks for the responses. Based on the descriptions I will definitely rent first.

I loved it for its weird scifi story but its like 60-70% cut scenes and rest game play. My friend borrowed it and couldn't get past more than 30mins cause of the constant cut scenes. If you loved Heavy Rain you'll probably like MGS.

Here are the first details on Black Ops Declassified, courtesy of Walmart.

"Call Of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified (PS Vita)

Before the future could be won, history had to be written. Exposing that story exclusively on PlayStation Vita, Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified explores original fiction in the Call of Duty Black Ops universe with an all-new campaign of Special Ops missions. Optimized for gamers on-the-go, Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified delivers the most intense handheld Call of Duty experience to date, including both Special Ops Story mode and Multiplayer combat tailored for the PS Vita."

So, maybe a bit like Unit 13, but with a few cut scenes to connect the missions?

http://ca.ign.com/articles/2012/06/05/e3-2012-littlebigplanet-could-save-the-vita

Here's an interesting article on LBP Vita. Apparently there is a Memorizer feature in the game that allows you to save in user-created levels. Levels can now be standalone games. If implemented well, LBP Vita will be able to replicate most of those cheap iOS/Android games for free. Anthony1, you're in the beta... care to comment (no specifics, just your general impression so far)?

It appears that even Amazon is running with the $50 price tag. I guess they must really think it's going to sell well for being the second PS Vita game to be priced that high. For that kind of price, they might be preparing for tons of marketing.

The Call of Duty game is supposed to come out this year right ? Kinda weird that nothing has been shown on the game at all. Of course Madden on Vita is supposed to come out in late August and I don't think I've seen anything on that either.

It is weird. Either Sony is playing their cards close to their chest, or these projects have run into snags. We've already seen a couple of minor title cancellations due to the platform's underperformance (Dungeon Defenders, for example). Hope that's not happening to major releases now, too.

So I guess they finally decided to release the YouTube app today.

Awesome, Tetris (minis) works for Vita now... thought for sure EA was going to make me buy it again.biggrin.gif
post #805 of 1725
I'm just fooling around with the wording.

This app already has more ratings and a higher score than the Twitter app if you were to look at the PS Store. That's incredible for an app that just came out but it's lacking in some areas like not being able to see my channel, other people's channels, statistics as well as more ways to search for videos. Luckily you can do all of that in the web browser except for watching videos itself and uploading videos. Hopefully it'll still get updates to fix these issues or at the very least, add full HTML5 video support to the browser. Their was a tweet from Sony saying that the Browser will be updated. At least it has some good things going for it like being able to stream in HD without issue, comment very easily, check your likes, your history, your search phrases and recommended videos.

I do wish it was more like the Twitter app in which I don't really need to go to the browser. It could be that it's that much more easy to develop a Twitter app but still.

So GameStop will allegedly get some nice sales on some good PS Vita games according to this:

If anybody missed out on a chance to get Mortal Kombat Vita, I was able to get two of them. One of them I'm keeping (it's a fantastic port !), but the other one I'm trying to trade for another Vita game. PM me if you'd like to trade one of your less played Vita games for MK.

When I got my Vita, it already had a screen protector applied to it. Everything was perfect with it, so was pretty pleased with it. Now, a couple of months later, and I have two air bubbles on the screen protector. Not sure what the heck is going on. Why would it be perfect for two months and then all of a sudden there are two air bubbles in the span of one week?

I guess I just need to buy another screen protector and reapply it. Any suggestion
s on the best screen protector to use with Vita?
