Picked up Hatsune Miku PS3 and Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory. Skipped Mirror's Edge because I already have it on Steam and would have to start over anyway if I changed my retail ME to digital since I got too far in it to continue playing from where I left off 5-6 years ago.

I made a thread for weirdos like me that got a PlayStation TV that want to know which compatible Vita games have issues and which fully support DS3/DS4 for improved controls in those games.

#12170940 PlayStation TV Compatibility List (Vita, PSP, PS1, PS Minis, and PS Mobile)

Posted by FriskyTanuki on 19 October 2014 - 08:21 PM

With the PlayStation TV's release, I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread where we can post feedback on how games handle being played with a Dual Shock 3 or 4 since I've already experienced one game that has control issues due to using one of the Vita's features (tilt, camera, or touch) that can't be handled with a controller. Plus, I wanted to see games noted that have been updated with full PS TV support to make use of every button on the Dual Shock 3/4, like Killzone: Mercenary, Minecraft, and God of War Collection since the game's page or update log may not note these things.

This should only affect native Vita games since PSP, PS1, and PS Minis should not suffer any issues due to not using the Vita's special features anyway. Do check your download list for these sorts of games that are not on the PS Store or on the list, as I suspect any of them will work on PS TV if you can get them on there.

Feel free to post impressions of your experiences with these games on PS TV, feedback on ways to improve the list, and edit the list yourself since I'm making this a wiki thread. Do add games that are not compatible since I just pulled a list of compatible titles from this Sony Support page as the basis for these lists.

Note: Issues can be anything from certain controls not working right due to reliance on gyro/touch controls or trophies being impossible to earn on PS TV. There is an option in the menu that comes up by holding down the PS button that lets you use alternate options for touch controls to get past some of these issues.

Color Key

Available on PS TV's PS Store
Fully supports DS3/DS4 controller (R2/L2 and R3/L3) on PS TV
Available only via Download List, Web Store download, or transfer from your Vita's memory card
Not Compatible with PS TV

Knack PS4 is on sale at BBY this week for 20.

Would y'all think this would end up as a PS+ free game at some point soon?

The reviews don't seem good enough to spend 20, unless people here have had a massively different experience.

Launch game. Not great reviews. Need something to give away free for PS4.

It's not the sort of game that is conducive to the typical review rush for a console launch, so the repetitive combat is something that would be really bad for reviewers but just fine for normal people that can play it at their own pace. I enjoyed the game quite a bit as a launch title.

Several months ago, there was that thing where Final Fantasy XIV showed up as "free" on PS4.  Someone here mentioned it, so I added it to my library, and I'm downloading it now...


For those of you who did that, is it possible to play the game upon buying a subscription?  Or will it still require you to pay $40 for the game?


I ask as I'd be interested in paying $15 to check it out for a month (or, as it'd more likely turn out, a week or two).

You have to pay for a license and a subscription. All you got was the client.

If you wanted sites to cover the "console wars" any time that we have new consoles coming, there were loads of politics inherent to all of the coverage to that stuff as people frame new features, specs, and details as being good, bad, better than the other guy, or whatever. It's only natural that the mentality of that sort of stuff extends to games as a whole as things like the first amendment protection of games becomes an issue and more legal issues arise as developers cross one another or steal things from them. If the media in its modern form existed back around the early days of the industry, they would have written about rival developers reverse engineering competing arcade machines to make their own clones and Atari not allowing their creators to take credit for their creations, so they stood up for themselves, left, and formed Activision and sued Atari to be allowed to make 2600 games as the first third-party developer out there. There has always been politics in the medium, so it's naive to expect the people covering it to completely ignore that stuff and basically keep their heads in the sand to focus only on the games themselves.


Previews are largely dying off these days as developers create increasingly hard to read slices of their games that could be so unrepresentative of the actual game, so most sites will probably just let the publisher blogs handle dispensing the latest info/PR on their new games so that they can handle the message. Then the sites don't have to take as much responsibility when that stuff backfires on those looking forward to the game. It's easier to just do video of the demos, betas, and such and let the readers/viewers see it for themselves.


My thinking is that the thing about AC Unity that Ubisoft won't talk about is that they tried to get the jump on this generation with Watch Dogs and AC Unity with early builds that they made expecting the new consoles to be much more powerful than they actually were, so they had to scramble to get them to acceptable resolution/frame rate that lead to Watch Dogs big delay and AC Unity's smaller delay.


Microsoft makes exceptions to their ID@Xbox parity clause policy, which calls into question why they have it at all. Phil Spencer suggested early on when he took over as head of Xbox that he would look into changing the parity clause, but he has recently said that it's staying because he wants Xbox One owners to not be considered as second class citizens because Xbox One isn't selling as well as PS4 and Microsoft isn't signing as many indies to work on their platform as Sony. Shipwreck is completely right on the strong arm tactics due to the policy. They did the same thing on Xbox 360 and caused lots of delays on PSN games because they had to ship day-and-date with each other, but Microsoft's XBLA policies delayed many of those games. Chris Charla, head of ID@Xbox, has tried to get the policy removed or changed, but the higher-ups don't want to make the change so that more developers will sign-up since some seem to ignore Xbox One because of it.


Wombat, due to the ID@Xbox parity clause, PS4 owners of Pinball Arcade have to wait longer for Season Two's tables because Microsoft wants parity. It's punishing developers' existing customers so that potential future Xbox One customers can be happy that others are as miserable as they are after the delays the XBLA/XB1 versions have had after Farsight's trouble with a dead publisher being in control of the XBLA version. It hasn't been universal because Microsoft took so long to get the program started that many of the early developers got to skirt the parity policy due to prior contracts with other platform holders.


Here are at least some of the ID@Xbox games that released on Xbox One at the same time as other platforms:


Strike Suit Zero: DC

1001 Spikes

Another World 20th Anniv. Edition

Guacamelee!: Super Turbo Champion Edition

CastleStorm DE

KickBeat SE


Divekick Addition Edition


Microsoft's digital releases are still a bit light at this point because of the delayed start to curating for the service, so most of the ID@Xbox games are still in the works.


Cheapy was talking earlier about refusing to buy Driveclub post-launch so as to not encourage buying a broken game. He had to have known that Forza Horizon 2 would pull some of the same crap with car packs that he hated with Forza 5, so why buy it and send them a message that you wouldn't tolerate the car stuff and that it was not okay? Take a stand for your beliefs if you think you're being screwed.
