I am not having a go, I am trying to find out as I have never owned any PS stuff before, but @ £29, it is less than £6/game. okay I realise that some are less than other, but is it really likely that these games will be reduced to < £6?

[email protected]

Yes less than an average of £6 is extremely likely. Gravity Rush & TxK have been ~£3 several times, Tearaway & Uncharted have both been £7 a few times. Not totally sure about Escape Plan, but it's been rather cheap several times.

If you want to spend £30 on games, you're better off just getting £30 PSN credit and buying games you like the look of when they are discounted.

Okay a different way to look at it

You need a memory card
Ideally you want a big one but an 8 is okay and thats going to cost you £15 to buy - and if you do switch to a bigger one you will get at least a tenner back on the old one via ebay

If you bought only Tearaway (great game £11.99) & Gravity Rush (great game £11.99) then everything else on the card is 'free'

So buy it - enjoy the games - and if you like and use your vita get a bigger card and sell the other one to get a tenner back

Sure, I can see that line of thinking. I was primarily responding to:

Ah, fair enough then. Still a good price for the games alone though unless any of them are currently on sale.


I'd also say that Uncharted isn't great.

Cool, cheers Lewie. How often are the sales? Is it random or like the steam ones?

There is a deal of the week on PSN nearly every week, although that's across PS3/PS4/PS Vita.

Wider sales occur on a semi regular basis. Maybe an average of once a month.

All announced here.

If you have a Playstation 3 then you have Playstation Home. In there you can play some arcade games. These are the arcade games from Playstation Home, but without Playstation Home, on the Playstation Vita.

What is wrong with it, it comes with two free games on the Vita? I can then buy games on it, but these games aren't bought on PSN. Errr, weird.

It's ok, you can't access the Home app, just the arcade games. They are probably ok.

Home is not.

Persona 4 Golden - I've slotted 24 hours or so into this so far. But then I left it a month or so ago and I haven't been back. I enjoyed it a lot but don't feel any compulsion to return to the routine of it all. I'm only up to the disappearance of the Idol - and I suspect I'm scores of hours away from finishing.

Persona 4 Goldeners - would you recommend finishing it or simply bask in the 20+ surreal and happy hours one has already wrung from it?

Some cheapo Vita games in their ridiculously named Vita on the Move sale.

I picked up a couple of PSP games as I fancied some Harvest Moonage and Mega Manage. I also picked up Sniper Elite 3 for the PS4, which didn't seem too bad at 15.99.

Luckily no one responded to this and told me to leave it alone. I've now 60 hours in and it's proving a wonderful toilet break companion.

Also happened upon Sue Perkins in it. But we won't hold that against it.

She did one of the voices in the You Don't Know Jack quiz game, and that was fucking amazing.

Gatecrasher was good, but NY Sushi was better.

Think Ranmoor and Sorby went down. As did Halifax old block I think. Stephenson's still there for the relatively well-to-dos.

X-Com coming to the Vita. Which is excellent news.

Eurogamer

Never really got on with it on iOS, loved it on Xbox 360 but struggled to wrest the necessary telly time from Mrs Fop for it. So alien autopsies on the loo will be perfect.

Space Hulk is coming out for the Vita.

If they speed it up a bit, you can colour me right interested.

Okay, a while back I swa something talking about a PS Vita updated version of Final Fantasy 7 and that it was a nice update, so on so forth. I can't now find that review, but my question is, the FF7 I find on the store is PSone classic version. Is this the same as a vita version. There is also a PSP version somewhere, maybe. I am confused, I want to by the remake not the original.

The only version I know of on the Vita is the PS1 original. They did an enhanced version for the PC I believe. And they're remaking the whole thing for current gen (but it's going to be episodic).

I have to say, the vita seems a bit shit, and the game prices are very high.

The PS1 titles on Vita are basically the exact same as their PS1 originals - they play well but they are 'old' games

I have quite a few of them and they are fine just dont expect anything beyond what was in the game 20 years ago

The vita has some really good games , however it also has a lot of junk , and the prices for it are a bit crazy - if you get things when they are on sale (or get cross buy games so you have PS4 and Vita) then they can be more reasonable

Probably need a list of good vita games somewhere I'll sort one out and post in a minute but Killzone Mercenaries / Uncharted / Spellunky / Resogun / Freedom Wars / Shovel Knight / are all worth a look.

Left and right on the back pad, or the touchscreen, I forget which. Touchscreen, I think. Back pad is for L/R3, I reckon.

I should have let Zaphod answer shouldn't I. I don't know, something on the front or back. It's a touch thing anyway; touching somewhere on the Vita where you're supposed to touch it. But not in a creepy way. I mean, don't stroke it, just like bang your finger on it. Fingerbang, if you will. No, no, not finger bang. Anyway, I'll let Zaphod clear it up.

This is all stuff i've played on the Vita - if anyone has other suggestions then throw them in - i think Sat liked Kick n Fenix ? , the Rachet and Clank games are also supposed to be quite good

Metacritic list http://www.metacritic.com/browse/games/ ... ?sort=desc

Some of these e.g. Velocity 2X or LPB never really clicked for me but you might enjoy

You can actually manually choose the controls you want however default has the top of the rear touchpad as L2 / R2 and bottom as L3 / R3

You can switch this around and also assign the front touchscreen for other controls.

And it sounds like you have played (or would like to play) Monster Monpiece

i think Sat liked Kick n Fenix


Did I fuck! It was derisory dogshit and I hated every minute of it up until it crashed for good; then I was happy i'd never have to play it again.

To modify your list, I really enjoyed Xenodrifter and thought Uncharted was good for Vita but still a poor game and Killzone Mercenaries was a load of shit too.

Ah it was Lave that liked it

6. Kick and Fennick - Vita - I've said it all over the place, but this is such a surprising delight. A genuinely novel and new 2D platformer. Game of the Year contender. I'll be wittering about this all year. Fantastic. As I said in the PS+ thread, there is something really primal and entertaining about parabolas. Must be evolution getting us to enjoy chucking rocks at mammoths. Or the use of urinals. Or something. But whatever the reason, a 2D platformer based on the recoil from a sniper rifle sending you flying in beautiful parabolas across the map is just superbly enjoyable to play. Binged and completed it over 3 days. Didn't outstay it's welcome, and bar a tiny dip in the middle where there is too much of a focus on timing puzzles, it fires on all cylinders throughout.


Killzone is the closest to a handheld COD game , it looks great - keeps the framerate up and the multiplayer stuff 'works' its an amazing achievement that they got all this running on a handheld , it was one of the first Vita games I got that i spent hours playing even when I had my other console games available.

Uncharted again was an early vita game for me - i've not revisited it recently so it may have aged but it again goes for the console feel.

Wipeout is good, if you like that sort of thing.

He is quite the math genius, too and a decent coder. He had a hand in creating the forerunner to quick acess computer memory, and SSDs using a daemon to swiftly retrieve data: The Wizbit.

I spoke to him on the phone when I worked for 123-reg. He was really polite and humble.

I love their art style but releasing on the Vita assures that it'll be a huge flop. I hope it doesn't tank the developers because I'd love for them to do well.
