I hope LoD goes on sale, mostly cause it's a great game and it will hopefully give people a reason to find out how awesome it is.

I should know this, but if I buy Knytt Underground through my Vita, it will give me access to both the PS3 and Vita versions right? Or do I have to buy it through my PS3 to make sure I get both versions?

Just check the information on the game. It should mention the cross buy on each platform. I don't see why there would be a problem buying on the Vita. I bought Hustle Kings through the Vita store. I had the PS3 version already listed in DL history when I checked after purchase.

13 PS3 games to six Vita/PSP games.


To be fair, the second part of his comment was that most of the PS3 games are older games. That part is true.

But to be honest, I haven't played many of the free PS3 games. I'm mostly into Plus for the discounts, which pay for the subscription on their own if you really take advantage of them.

Correct. Buying either version gives you both.

Yeah, Morgan again mentioned that they may try to go back to the monthly outlooks for March, so we may be seeing info about this real soon.

I'm not at all optimistic that moving to monthly updates will solve any of the "problems", but I guess we'll see. I guess it might cut down on the bitching every week, but I personally doubt that.


I prefer the monthly update, it gives you the early glimpse you need to avoid buying any free or future discounted games.

But that is how it's always been, the Vita addition to Plus has no effect on this.

From what I've been told, nope. Source: Gundam: Battle Operation forums, where the people who buy the DLC play the game exclusively on their Japanese accounts.


Well that sucks. Do you think it could vary on a game-to-game basis?

i'd say few games have dropped that fast in price, much older games have a higher price


I disagree. The sale represents what...a $21 drop? And that's only if you have PS+.

Almost every new $60 game can be found for $40 (or less) at least once within four months of release. It's why I barely ever buy games on day one anymore- maybe a couple per year, tops, and even then I take advantage of something like the Best Buy $20 certificate/pre-order deal.

All you'd have to do in the future is add one to your cart and then try to add the other, as it'll block you on the second try if it's Cross Buy.

Just wished they had separate ps+ memberships for vita and ps3. or you could buy one that combines the two. I just feel like we get more free vita stuff than ps3 stuff, and all the ps3 stuff is old games most people have played already, or really obscure titles that nobody wants. I'm overall satisfied with what i've gotten through ps+ in deals and whatnot, just wished it was geared more towards ps3 than vita.


as a member since inception, we used to not get -anything- many weeks. that's just how it was. now, those weeks get filled in by Vita. I haven't noticed a PSN/PS3 dropoff. Slightly less PS1 games and minis, but i think they weren't what people wanted based on their surveys.

PS all stars for $18 with ps+? When games go 66% off within 4 months it's no wonder the industry is tanking. Nobody's going to pay full price for a game if they can just wait a little bit and get it for that cheap


Too high. It should be 10 by now.

Game is worth what they are asking. Yea its not the best but it is well made and worth $20.

I think I am going to grab a few vita games tomorrow. Thinking Smart As and Little Deviants. I need another memory card. If I were to get another memory card would it work to keep different games on each and all I do is switch the memory cards out for the different sets of games?

I highly recommend trying the demo for Little Deviants. I instantly knew it wasn't for me.

As long as your games are on the same account, yes, that should work though I haven't done it yet. If they're on different accounts you need to jump through a couple more hoops

also, if it matters to you, whenever you switch memory cards your bubbles will all be reset. not a big deal, but i have mine organized and it was a pain to constantly put them back where they were when i changed cards.

Are the tracks on Urban Trials Vita the same as the PS3 version or are they different? Trying to decide if it is worth the double dip.

I will say, I like PSN+ as I have reupped for the second year and always look forward to see what they offer. That being said, for my personal gaming preferences, I really prefer the EU offered games to the games that NA gets. It does get me to try new games that I haven't heard of/wouldn't have bought without it, but when I see the games that Europe get I just shake my head because they're games that I actually want.

This can't possibly be true because someone here argued that EU+ gets those games because their tastes are different [/sarcasm]

Apparently EU gaming tastes prefer very recent AAA titles and NA tastes like more vintage and niche stuff.

Urban Trials Vita version does still have pretty good graphics and a good amount of action even though it may be toned down, however, I don't see why someone would want both versions if the tracks and challenges are all the same. The tracks are re-used in the game itself, so having a duplicate game with re-used tracks seems like it could get pretty old, pretty fast.

I'm loving the Vita version. I could see myself getting the PS3 version if it ever goes on sale below $10 since I like it so much. I'm hoping they will add some future content such as more tracks and a track editor, but it seems unlikely from some of the info i've read. Apparently a 3DS version comes out later this year that has more stuff in it.

Ha. Yea, I feel like a lot of the conflict over this sort of thing is moot. People see a game, and want to play it and have a reaction to it.

I'm not sure how Sony determines which games are released in what region, but I'll bet it has more to do with partnerships with publishers than surveying the wants of each region (though I'm sure there's a bit of that in there).

I'm personally not psyched about PvZ, as I have played it previously and there are new games that I'd like to try instead of replaying it on a different device, but I have been extremely pleased with the overall Vita offerings to this point. Especially considering the small catalog of games that have been released.

No offense, but I think thats a dumb idea. So you pay $50 for PS3+ and then what at least $30 extra for Vita+. It makes more sense to have one combined program for both and it works out better for us the consumer.

PS all stars for $18 with ps+? When games go 66% off within 4 months it's no wonder the industry is tanking. Nobody's going to pay full price for a game if they can just wait a little bit and get it for that cheap

most games are overpiced anyway. Not every game warrants a $60 pricetag and many dont sell at that pricepoint until they've dropped. I enjoy PS AS, but it wasnt a $60 quality game to me. I think it should have launched at $40

For those with a Family Video near them, they are selling PS All Stars on PS3 used for $20. Most stores only have 1 copy to sell though.

Also, what is the last day to buy PS Plus and get 3 months free? If I did it today, would I get the 3 months plus $10 back?
