Does this mean MK Vita is free next week?


I don't see / recall anything leaving, so it just means they didn't announce the price.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Thanks Frisky. Will probably grab Eufloria for $2.50 and force myself to understand the game.

Interesting that they're giving us discounts on a lot of the games EU got for free (Arkham City, Bulletstorm, and now MK Vita). Guess we won't be getting any of those.

It's not that hard to understand if you've played games like Mushroom Wars, Galcon, and, I believe, Planets Under Attack. It's basically like those with a cooler art style, more types of units, and sometimes you have to deal with fog of war.

Does this mean MK Vita is free next week?

No, it wouldn't be listed under Deals if that were the case. It would under the PS+ Games list with the God of War Ascension Beta.

I got Lumines for about $15 or $20 on the Qubed disc for 360, meaning I got not only 2 extra games, but I got some of the Lumines DLC as well. Despite being a fun game, it feels hard to recommend at $20, let alone the original $40, for another version. I'd honestly wait to see if it goes to $15 or even $10.



While I would agree that for most people, 20 is a bit much for a game like Lumines (or Tetris for that matter), Electronic Symphony blows the XBLA/PSN versions away.

Aside from the XP system replacing the old unlock system (which sounds like a better method to motivate people to replay) & avatars giving you certain powers, what's all the new content in the Vita version? I've been waiting for it to be discounted since I liked the XBLA version, but wanted to wait for it to get lower in price.

OH, there's a demo. Surprised I didn't see that earlier. I'll give that a try.

I've seen it in store at Gamestop and Frys. Both had them for $20 when I looked.

As for ones that will fit the grip...The Sony carrying case is open on the sides and bottom so maybe that's a possibility? The open design won't offer complete protection but might allow you to use both the grip and the case at the same time.

The Sony travel pouch is another possibility. It has a second pocket for accessories so maybe the grip will fit in there?


The Vita Travel Pouch will not hold either the grips made by CTA or the grips made by PDP. I got both for christmas -- for the record, i prefer the pdp ones because they replace the triggers with actual 'triggers'. the CTA ones don't cover/change the Vita's natural triggers. Both are better than a Vita w/o a grip, imo, in terms of long term comfort.

Unfortunately I haven't played any of those. I tried to understand Eufloria last time it was on sale, I downloaded the demo and just couldn't fully comprehend what I was trying to do. Maybe I'm just not very bright...

Also, I'm hoping we get a 13 for '13 sale in January, like they've done in previous years. Not trying to sound greedy, Sony has done a great job bringing the sales!

Why wouldn't the digital release of a beloved game be good news? More people will have access to it now, especially those that were on the fence and could never pull the trigger on a physical copy. The price is Atlus' decision to make, not the people running the PS Store, so wait for the next round of Atlus sales later this year if you want it for cheaper than that.


I am looking forward to another Atlus sale. Hopefully they will have the Persona series on sale again. I missed out on the last one because I didn't have a Vita at the time. A $10 Catherine wouldn't be bad either. :D

I'd looked at the PDP ones online, but haven't found them locally to try out. Reviews say they aren't great for big hands - what's your experience been?

What I wouldn't give to see Atlus port Catherine and P3:FES (among others) to Vita.

I have found the PDPs at Gamestop and Best Buy if that helps you out.

I had the PDP grips for a little while, the triggers are nice, but my hands still cramped up after 10 minutes or so. (I wear size large gloves– not XL). I ended up getting the Hori grips and now I can play until my battery runs out.

As far as a case to hold the Vita with grips, I used a sock for a little while then I remembered I had a Crown Royal bag in the garage. It works great until something better is released.

Last night four titles from the current Instant Game Collection reverted to trial status for me, (Payday, DD:Neon, Dungeon Defenders, and Scot Pilgrim). My PS+ is active so it wasn't that big of a deal as they are all still currently offered so I was able to just re download the unlock for the full game for each. Still, it was annoying. Anybody else ever have this happen?

Did you renew your sub since those games were first offered?

Yes, I had renewed since they were first offered. So far all of the other games that in the IGC that I've checked are fine and haven't reverted to a trial status. As far as I can tell, it appears to have just been those four games that changed. Although I found it strange, all are back to normal now so it's not really a big deal.

I sent a message to Big Ant Studios, who developed the Vita/PS3 ports of Jetpack Joyride, about the chances of an update adding button controls and their response was 'very likely :)".

If you want to discuss the game more, there's a thread in the Vita forum for it.

If you check the OP and see any games on the Free PS+ Games list with a red asterisk on them, like there are for two games this week, then those will be replaced with new games the following week.

That's not always true. There have been one or two weeks in the past where 2 games left the free section and only 1 new free game was put up. The other free game would appear in the next week.

What probably happened is they expired when your sub ran out. And it needed to sync them back up to your new sub expiration date.

Is there an easier way to do that other than triggering each game while signed into PSN to the proper account?

That's the only way I've seen it work so far.

genius idea! to the liquor store!! thanks sir.


picked up a pdp grip tonight, triggers are nice but i think i'm ordering a hori from amazon to compare - still feels a little small.
