I'm a PS+ member and when I check the Ultimate Edition for Alice: Madness Returns the picture shows that it's $15.99 for Plus members but when I add to cart/checkout it shows up as $19.99. The download size is also different than it was a few days ago (4.5 GB previously, now showing as 5.4 GB). Anyone else having this problem or know what's going on?

You've got a very interesting point, and I don't think there would be anything stopping anyone from activating a Gamefly copy to get the Vita version for free. Here's the full breakdown:


Via http://www.gamespot....4688130/?page=0

I saw a post with screen shots, too, but I can't find it now. Either way, that's the same thing I read elsewhere. I do indeed believe there's nothing stopping you from redeeming the cross-buy Vita copy with a rental, and likewise, if you want the cross-buy intact, definitely buy new. Even people who don't own Vita's probably would redeem it for if-and-when they ever do get one. At least that's what I would do.

For the curious - at the moment, it doesn't appear that Redbox carries PS All-Stars.


I don't understand how this is possible. Every PS3 game is pressed from the same master and doesn't have unique data anywhere on the disc as far as I'm aware. How the hell are they doing this?

To anyone who cares, the ps+ vita game GameStop trade in values are as follows:

Uncharted:GA $10
Gravity Rush $10
Wipeout 2048 $4.50

I also got a 25% bonus on all three games from promo #14047 (no idea what this was) as well as my 10% powerup bonus. Brought the total for all 3 games to $33.07. Seemed reasonable to me.

Legit, maybe, but it's gaming the system and if it works, Sony will stop us from doing it in the future by stopping the whole Cross Buy promotion.


I'm usually on my moral high horse when it comes to things like this, but I don't see anything wrong with doing this. It's not like GameFly can do anything with the digital Vita copy. I'm sure Sony is aware that the first people renting the game will be getting the digital Vita copy.

It's a good question, but check out this link:

http://support.us.pl...s-platform-play

Q: What does it mean if I get the message "The disc has already been added to another account" when trying to access Disc Benefits?
A: If you receive this message, this means the Cross-buy item has already been redeemed by another PSN account. Cross-buy content can only be used once and by one PSN account. Once redeemed, the content cannot be accessed again.

It would seem Sony has figured out a system for each disc to have something to it that uniquely identifies it, I assume it's a voucher code that functions much like a serial number.

You're right, though - it's typically the exact same software on every disc. Whatever they've figured out, I could imagine this same thing being used for full console titles much like PC games with serial numbers. Not just online features, but having to do something for the system to associate the disc with your user account and thus have access to the game.

I suppose it's possible that the PS3 laser can read the barcode at the center of the disc, I think those are unique - that's got to be the only explanation.

Just Googled this. I don't know anything about it, being a noob and all.:baby:

By synchronizing your trophy information with PlayStation®Network servers, you can:

Continue to have the trophies you earned on your old PS Vita system, if you dispose of or transfer ownership of your PS Vita system and then later get a new PS Vita system

http://manuals.plays...hies/about.html

http://manuals.plays...ore_system.html

So if I synchronize my trophy information with PSN, remove the 8GB memory card currently in my Vita, then restore the Vita, I should be good to go with the new Vita (I can retrieve my account information on the new one)?

Make sure you backup your saved games to the cloud, a ps3 or a pc first though.

This is probably a noobish follow-up question, but doesn't the 8GB memory card contain all the data?

Yes, but I'm 98% sure that its locked to the Vita it was originally formatted on. If you want to use it in a different vita I'm pretty sure you have to format it again. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong though.

Since you're in the PSN weekly deals thread, I assume you're interested in digital format, but the physical format is currently $9.99 at Amazon, though you'll have to wait for it to come back in stock.

Yeah but you're getting the direct sequel also, which costs $30 plus by itself on WiiWare. Plus a small 2-hour game that bridges the story between both games.

Hmmm...there doesn't appear to be a toggle for the bit rate quality. :cry: I let the no-cache option for my phone slide, but this might be it for me. It's a big fucking deal, honestly, and I wouldn't even consider myself an audiophile. Shame, too, because the service is otherwise stellar. Still have time to decide...maybe I'll get over it.

Heard from who? I just have the Sony brand screen protector, and ive never had an issue. I combo this with the soft travel pouch that comes with the starter kit and it's all good. The only problem I had was when my dog knocked it off a table onto the hardwood floor. Cracked the screen and paid Sony to fix it.

Unless you treat your electronics like you're an animal, the basic screen protector should be fine.

Bullion Blitz was released last Tuesday under the Playstation Mobile section of the Vita Playstation Store and is free to download. One section, Quick Play, is free to play, while the other 2 sections Quest and Puzzle cost $1.29 to unlock.

It's a touchscreen puzzle game where you touch bullion bricks to destroy them and get money. Combining bullion bricks with the same width or height and the same material will create bigger and more valuable bricks. Here is a link about the game and some pictures of it. Even though the link is for the European region, the game is also available in the North American region.

Official Sony one is amazing, and easiest one I ever applied. Though atm I'm trying to decide whether or not to replace it with the full front covering Persona 4 one.
