Figures the update would happen on the day I have to redownload on my new PS3. Hope it doesnt start glitching up.

Also holy crap, have the trophies been syncing this slow since the last update? 5 minutes so far and only 12%


Yeah, my trophies were taking their sweet time updating. I usually got a fraction of the way and then got an error. I did it a few times over a few days and it eventually all synced.

I guess I saw that BB post enough times that I thought it was cheap everywhere. I am pretty sure I paid $10 for it at TRU many months ago. I could be wrong though. It may have been $16 or something like that. Still well worth it to me as I quickly played it on easy and got almost all my money back trading in to either Amazon or Best Buy.


Yeah, it's $5 at Sears and Kmart, too, if they have it in stock. I was lucky enough to grab the best buy one. In fact, Vanquish was my first "CAG purchase".


I guess it was cheaper at a few more places than I thought. I just never go for those YMMV deals because I never end up getting them, so I don't really keep track of them or remember them.

No Vanquish is not free, we're just discussing the possibilities that it might be.

Just a reminder that the PlayStation Plus Guessing Game is still going on until Sunday night, so get your good guesses while others are making bad guesses to give you better odds.

Thanks. Just assumed it would be the 8th because that had been announced before.

No problem. I think Morgan Haro over on the PS Blog had said the 8th, IIRC. Guess they decided to change it.

There's a manga section/reader for the Vita that was released in Japan mid-October, so perhaps the US will get something like that, but with the addition of US comics.

That looks like a heavily sarcastic post from gettin, not something you should've taken that seriously.

Edit: I'll add this about the question over whether When Vikings Attack will have the discount in the US, just wait until Monday to see whether it's true or not despite the mention on the PS Blogcast. Nobody should be shitting on others over that anyway, especially when you guys know when they make official announcements for PS+ schedules for the following week.

So i hear they're just a few days away from announcing the finer details of what PS+ will mean for the Vita.

I'm not expecting anything too crazy but if the instant game collection has even one game I don't already own and want, I'll consider that a win~

What I really want on my Vita the most is just some of the basic functions from PS+. The Automatic Update feature that the PS3 has for instance. I also want the Vita to be able to access the same cloud storage space that the PS3 can. So if I have a cross-play game, I can just put my PS3 saves on the cloud, download them wirelessly to the Vita through the cloud, and be on my way. Or vice-versa. And a games collection with at least one decent game would be nice lol.

Cross Save games already have cloud storage for each game to sync the saves between both platforms in-game, so I'm not sure what you're asking for there that wasn't already there.

Oh ya, the cloud and cross-play just feels like they were made with each other's functionality in mind.

Automatic update would be nice for backing up saves to the cloud but for firmware/patches for games, I've not had too many games require patches like they do on the PS3 so I don't think that's as big of a factor.

Really? Cause I thought I remembered having to manually connect my Vita to my PS3 to transfer my Sound Shapes save. But I guess I could of gotten that confused with when I was trying to get the PS3 trophies to show up after I platinumed the game on my Vita. If you're right, never mind then lol.

I had to download an update for LBP Vita the other day and it just irked me as I've gotten pretty used to the PS3 downloading all my updates for me.

You can't transfer PS3 saves to a Vita, so that would've been an amazing trick to pull off. If you did it the normal way, you just synced it from the menus. They did have server issues around launch that made syncing more difficult than it should've been, so that may be what you're thinking.

No, I was talking about trying to transfer my Vita save to my PS3. But it doesn't matter, I think you're right anyways. Sound Shapes is really the only cross-play game I have at the moment so I'll just trust your expertise.

I understand now, though they're not compatible through those means. The cloud sync in-game is how it converts the save between both versions to make it as easy as possible.
