My friend still hadn't preordered CODBO2 yet, so I convinced him to let me do it for him at Best Buy, then got the @Gamer issue free and bought a year of PS+ for $35. Alright Sony, do your worst (best?). I'm ready for you. I am highly looking forward to the Vita version of + as well.

Btw, I have found that I do hate the new trophy setup. Pretty much every time I want to check a trophy, then back out, it locks up at the list of games for a couple minutes with the loading symbol. Starting to find it's easier to just check my trophy lists via gamercard sites...

You think thats bad? You only have 221 games played... but seriously, just switch it to offline mode. That will get it to the old style, then click your card to actually sync them. Sorta annoying, but not too different than the old set up really.

Nah, even in offline mode it tries to sync with server when you try to check your Trophy List, while signed in, and not in a game. If you are in a game, then sure offline mode acts like normal.

Offline mode is the old system. If you haven't synced your trophies in a while when you're online, it'll sync them. If they're up to date, then they won't sync when you look. It also only shows all of the local trophies, which means no Vita trophies.

This has always bugged me. 'A while' seems to be 'more than 15 minutes of idle' or 'more than 5 minutes of gameplay' to me.

I've gone hours idle in a game without it happening. Can't say outside of a game, but it almost never happens to me.

Got RE5 fine but I cannot get Rachet & Clank, Infamous 2, or LBP 2 to even add to my cart. It keeps telling me that all of them are unavailable at this time. I tried the demo and it will let me download the demo.

Anyone with ideas on that?

Is FES just a PS2 classic? So no upscaling or anything like that?

Quick question for the CAG community...Is there anyway to delete trophy information in which you have 0% for the game? I know you can with Xbox, but I am not sure on PS3.

If you haven't synced yet, you can re-format the hard drive.

Some of it yes, some no. You need to progress to chapter 3-1 I believe, the boat stage where Chris has the flashback to when He lost his partner, Jill, which was during the "Lost in Nightmares" DLC scenario. Pretty positive that unlocks after this stage.

i really hope they come up with some more options for the graphics of psp game on vita. from what i've played, only the anime style games look good. dissidia looks horrible, and ragnarok tactics looks kind of bad in battles. guess i'm going to have to break out the psp for this one. maybe i'm just overreacting, and that's the difference in quality between vita and psp games.

Wondering if I should go for Persona 1/2/3 on this sale, or just wait and hope they drop more. Any chance that this would happen, or should I just snag them?

I knew there was an easier way, still a pain in the ass though, I'd rather go for the trophies.

I'm wondering what I should use my $20 on. I'm hoping Vita Plus comes with some good discounts.

Some games to think about would be Dokuro, Okami HD or Moon Diver since I've never seen it onsale.

No doubt. Last time I synced my list, it took me 9 hours to complete. (Before someone makes a stupid claim like my internet sucks... I got 300+ games played, there are just a lot of lists lol)

As far as the 20, I 2nd Dokuro. However, some people have problems with the puzzle difficulty... so keep that in mind. I found them all pretty easy and got the platinum within 2 days.

I guess it depends on when you are planning to play them. It might be a while before they get cheaper, but if you have enough of a backlog that you don't think you will get to it soon, maybe it is a good idea to pass.

Personally, I think the games are worth it at this price.

9 hours to sync is pretty insane admiralvic. i have alot of games and mine takes at most 15mins and even that gets me impatient. Also i don't know why people fret over 0%'s, i think about 25% of my games list is 0-5%s just from putting the game in, playing a level and trading it back in/sending back the rental/back to the backlog. and yeah if i want to check my trophies I just choose to do it ingame now on and hope it doesn't freeze. edit below my gamers tags, yeah 54% completion on 548 games is pretty bad... I gotta quit making babies and play my games!

I'm pretty happy with my completion rate. I'd like to get it up to over 80% but I keep starting new games instead of wrappin up old ones.
