I think I'm actually going to get the Uncharted card game. $5 and could be fun.

I've played a bit of Cash Guns Chaos and it's alright for the price. It's clearly aping Smash TV by putting the action in the guise of a TV show where you shoot at enemies coming at you, collecting the money and prizes that they drop, and moving from room to room. The controls are alright, as the shooting controls seem to be closer to eight-way shooting since you can also just use the face buttons if you like. I don't like the hit detection for enemies coming at you, so I never got comfortable with how close I could get to enemies without taking a hit. There seems to be a decent amount of content in there with three episodes of five areas each, which have at least a few stages in them.

As a reminder, this is a launch-era PSN game, so it was made in the time when PSN/XBLA games were designed to be cheaply-made time wasters like classic arcade games. It doesn't look very good, the options and leaderboards are limited, and there are no trophies. For $0.75, it was worth it for me to be able to do a video for you guys and finally play this old-ass game for myself. Though I could easily name 6-12 better dual-stick shooters on PSN that would be a better way to spend your time, this is the kind of game you'd just throw into your cart as fodder with other stuff you were looking forward to playing, if that makes any sense to you guys.

The videos uploading to Youtube now, so it should be done by the morning. You can go here to check for it.

Probably EA Sports games bundled with DLC. There was no specificity beyond "EA Sports Bundles".

Sweet, new imports. Here's what I was able to dig up on them:

Finger Flashing - a weird rock-paper-scissors game:

Lup Salad - a puzzle platformer:


Makeruna Makendou 2 - a PS1 port of an SNES fighting game?:


Zanac X Zanac - a space shooter


Vehicle Cavalier - looks something like Armored Core

the memory card prices have nothing to do with the system sales. i'm sure if they did a $20 32gb sale people would buy them, and just hold them til a price drop happened on the system. much like people are doing with the games now. it's a stupid argument in the first place. people wouldn't be content even if it took sd memory, cause then they would think it should have Xgb internal storage. unless sony cut prices by 95% people are still going to find a price to complain about.

the system isn't selling cause there are not enough must have games, and there are not enough must have games cause developers aren't on board with the system. pure speculation, developers aren't on board with the system cause of the piracy issue with the psp.

First off.... it SHOULD have internal storage. I should be able to push my profile and game saves onto the internal memory and then load up a new memory stick and have them transfer back onto it. Next, it doesn't hurt system sales. You're right. What it DOES hurt is digital sales. They should be pushing this day 1 download model out the door! So many (less thrifty) people are eating it up on both steam and PS3. There's no reason that the PSV shouldn't share in that.

Lastly, the PSV's hackablity has nothing to do with the type of memory used and EVERYTHING to do with how the OS interprets information. With enough time will hackers be able to root PSVs? yes. Will people be able to download pirated versions of games? Yes. The only difference is that Hackers will be able to charge more because it's more expensive to hack Proprietary hardware. I give it at most a year before we start seeing rooted Vitas using file transfer programs to get games off your pc onto the vita memory. I see it being done mostly because Sony put out the challenge by using security as an excuse to charge more.

Hell yeah maybe they will finally mail out the limited editions. I've been patient and the game looks really fun. I bet it will take lots of practice to get good DJ Max Technika Tune.

I hope the limited editions come autographed like Portable 3.

Hmm, Jak & Daxter collection may be worth looking into, depending on what price it is actually dropped to.

The armchair analysts in here should put down the pipe and monacle for a moment. Vita memory cards are not just their margin of profit for a console sold at a loss, they are to protect the system from piracy.

The vast majority of PSP owners in Europe and a pretty sizable chunk in NA did not pay for a single game on PSP. I know its fun to cry about stuff like this but at least put 10 seconds of thought into it.


:applause:

hell, how easy was it to simply put a pro duo in the comp then

1. click iso, copy
2. paste into pro duo.

Question: If I connect my old black Vita (with an 8GB memory card inside containing all my save data) to both my PC and PS3 console and do the following:

1) Copy all Applications.
2) Create Backup Files.

Am I ready to remove the 8GB card from the black Vita, reformat the black Vita, start up the white Vita I got from the AC:L bundle, insert the 8GB card into the white Vita, and proceed to copy the black Vita's data onto the white one using the PC and/or PS3?

Oddly enough, when I copied the Applications to my PC, the Vita displayed the information for every game's except Virtue's Last Reward--does that mean I didn't copy its relevant data?

The retail version got a price drop to $19.99, didn't it? I assume the digital version will be getting that price drop as well. As for each game, my guess would be $9.99, just because I don't see them trying to price games at $6.66 on the store. Maybe $6.99 or $7.99, but my guess is $9.99.

You can just take your 8gb card out of the black one and put it in to the white one (just go through initial setup and firmware update on the white one before inserting the memory card). Doing a backup doesn't hurt, but I've swapped units 3 times and haven't had to restore from backup yet. After you're setup on the white vita just go the black one, deactivate it in the PSN settings, and choose Format -> Reset Vita or whatever the option is.

I'm gonna echo Frisky and encourage people to post these questions in the Vita thread. PSN thread is for discussing what's in the PSN store.

I found it to be a disappointing and shallow racing game due to it leaning more heavily on the arcade aspect of its roots, though I have no prior experience with the series to know how it compares in that way. The native Move support is terrible.


Thanks, Frisky. Think I'll pass.
