Play the free 1 hour trial that you get on PS+ first to see if you like it. I found something that was a deal breaker for me.


What was the deal breaker, if I may ask?

I thought controlling your character was awful moving, running and jumping...also as it relates to combat. I know to some it may sound petty but its what you do the most in a game.

Get your stinking paws off me you damn dirty ape.

imo, don't sweat the EU vs. US account.

easy solution -- don't pay attention to what EU gets. you'll be happy enough with a US account.


Agreed. The grass is always greener...

Nice, picked up MGS HD for Vita and RCR, and I still need to transfer the free Uncharted, and Gravity Rush. Great time to be a new Vita owner.

Good idea on the PS+ trial.

I will have to check this out. There was a time toward the end of the PS1 and beginning of PS2 where nearly every game looked excellent for it's time, and was nearly unplayable. That was the moment when I decided graphics are not all that important, if it is at the sacrifice of control.

Almost broke down and got MG:Hd Collection but then i noticed the 3.3gb install .... Wow thats a deal breaker considering how limited the space u get on vita memory cards. And besides i can easily see this game dropping to $20 in the near future, so for about $2 difference i can save about 3gb of install space.

My 2 cents.

Quick question:

For the free games, do you just have to "purchase" them through the PSN store to have access later on, or do they have to be downloaded?

Here's what I wanna do:

I don't have a Vita, but will in the future. I want all the free PSN+ Vita games, but I don't want them on my HDD. Can I queue them up then cancel the download, then download them at a later date, as long as I'm still a PSN+ member?

TiA!

Just purchase, no need to download. You'll be able to download them later on your shiny new vita as long as you purchased them during the free period.

That's nothing... I just bought MGS3 for PS3 and it's a 9GB install! I was also surprised to see that Persona 3 FES, a non-HD PS2 title took up like 4 or 5 gigs: I don't know much about programming, but I get the feeling they aren't putting much effort into condensing these ports.

Just go to the store and "buy" them, as in add them to the cart and go through check out intil it says "download" and you don't actually have to download them now, just go back and check and it should say "purchased" instead of the price.

After that, you can download them again at any time (as long as you still have ps+).

I don't have a Vita yet, that's exactly what I did.

It already did. I picked it up for $20 w/coupon at BB as a Christmas present about a month ago.

From what I've read you have to overlook a few quirks with the mechanics of the game but overall people seem to enjoy it.

I purchashed it near launch while under the influence of alcohol. I grew up with a drunk, abusive father. Watching the opening, or scene near the begining (again, I was intoxicated), I freaked out, broke down in tears and turned the console off. Those with issues that stem from abusive parents may want to be wary. I really want to play, just got to muster up the courage.

Weren't there a handful of dual-layer PS2 games?

According to another poster... it seems Chronovolt is going to be the next vita game.

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.

Amazon had it marked down to $20 for one day earlier this month and I bought it, sure to happen again(and probably for longer once the game is older).

I can't seem to replicate any of the PS+ deals, but I definitely see where it says NBA Jam and Chronovolt will be free.

EDIT: I lied. Yes I can. Tokyo Jungle is definitely on there as well under PS3 Deals.

LOL, normally i hate these types of posts, but i think in this case it's a little funny: i got a ps3 for xmas, and signed up for ps+; decided i wouldn't buy many games online sans classics that cost more for discs, and i made one exception; NBA jam bc ive played it more than any other game on xbox. just plunked down the $15 for it yesterday so i could play with my ps3 friends who have it. Go figure literally the only game i buy on the platform ends up being the first extra free game :P. Never buying anything again haha.

I still regret not picking it up when it was first released and discounted. Now that Remote Play for the Vita has been patched in, I will without a doubt be buying it this time.
