I was leaning towards getting a tablet over getting a vita. This is making the decision harder.


Tablets are fine, but there is nothing like real buttons and analog sticks. My biggest problem with tablet games is that the controls are poor, so only certain types of games are fun.

Another alternative is to download the games to your PS3 and transfer them when you want.

The way it works with the PSP/PS3 is your save files are separate from the game files. So you should be able to delete the game w/o losing your saves.


That is wrong. Deleting the Vita game WILL delete the save.

If you don't know the right answer, don't answer.
If you're trolling, don't answer.
If you think you know the answer but aren't sure, don't answer.

In all likelihood he probably just didn't know. I'd assume the game data was separate, too. Granted, I don't have a vita, lol. Even if I did, I wouldn't know that until I actually deleted a game. That's how the PS3 works so his assumption wasn't totally illogical. But, you're right...misinformation helps no one. Anyway, guess I need to keep this in mind when considering memory card sizes.

How much memory/MB does Uncharted:GA & Gravity Rush take?


This - want to know too!

Another alternative is to download the games to your PS3 and transfer them when you want.


Ooh, I had forgotten about that. I think that's what I'll do and then just move stuff over as needed. I upgraded one of my PS3s to 750GB so I have all the storage I need there.

Yeah, actually it is pretty stupid if it works that way. Why can't your saves stay on the system? It is completely illogical that they don't. But didn't they say there would be (PS+) cloud storage for game saves on the Vita? So you could always put them there before deleting games if that is the case. I'm going to assume that deleting a game off your Vita would not result in the Cloud storage save being deleted. That would definitely defy logic, common sense, and any number of other things...

I've heard rumors that it was an attempt for Sony to prevent CFW as people on the PSP could use save files to somehow pirate stuff. Who knows? Maybe its all a conspiracy to make us all buy PS+ so we can take advantage of the cloud saves. I hope there are cloud saves. I only have 7 GB left on my 32 GB stick and want to download all those delicious free games coming up.

I'm not sure Sony will allow Newegg to lower the price. I think it is a restriction Sony (and other manufacturers) put on certain products. That's one reason why you see Target, Amazon, and other places giving gift cards or freebies with purchase. It is a way to "lower" the price while still meeting Sony's requirement.

I may not know what i'm talking about, so anyone with more knowledge, feel free to correct me.


I don't think that's really accurate. The Black Friday sales on Vita bundles at all the major retailers (Best Buy, Target, Fred Meyer, possibly Game Stop.. we will know soon) are straight up $199.99. No gift cards, no mail in rebates, just $199.99. Even if it is for a limited time/quantity, I don't see why pricing restrictions would be put on Newegg for the same exact bundles.
No matter what, I'd even consider a $249.99 Vita bundle with a $50 Newegg gift card though. With as much as I spend there, it would basically work out to be the same thing. :lol:

Total file size of all games is around 6.6 GB plus whatever size Jet Set Radio will be.

I'm not sure how accurate it is either, but I believe I've heard something similar. For example, Apple imposes rules pricing re-sellers and stores. And, legally, I believe it's within their right to do it. In the case of Sony, it makes sense considering no one ever deviates below MSRP.

Don't forget there is PlayStation Mobile: http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=329463

It's coming along. The iTunes App Store didn't happen overnight. Of course, I say this from the gaming perspective.

Uncharted only has a base TIV of $3 so with the 100% you get $6 if you aren't GCU which would give you an extra $0.30. Gravity Rush has a base of $10.

I will most likely at least trade in gravity rush, $3 for uncharted is just so damn low. Maybe ill see what the GameStop TIV is.

One question though, I'm assuming game saves between the two versions (disc vs DL) aren't compatible are they?

I mean I'm not horribly far through either but it would be nice to not have to start over. I don't really touch my vita enough to get ver far :/

It looks to be $10 base for Uncharted from the GS Trade In thread.

From what I can find, certain games save right on the cartridge and won't be compatible with digital versions purchased.

Other games save right on the memory card and will be compatible with digital versions.. how you would go about finding which games save in what way without trial and error, I do not know!

The "PS+ games are only rentals" argument is faulty, because: PS+ grants you a new game every week, while letting you keep all the previous ones they gave you. In a year, you'll have 50 games in your possession all at one time. In 3 years, you'll have 150 games in your possession at one time. If you went to Netflix, Blockbuster, or GameFly and told them you wanted to pay $50/yr for a membership that lets you rent one new game every week, while also keeping every game from all previous weeks forever (so long as you remain a member of their store) they'd call you batshit insane.

And to argue that you lose access to them if you cancel your membership, well duh... if you are a person who enjoys watching movies you aren't going to cancel your Netflix, are you? Not as long as you continue enjoying watching movies. The only way you're canceling it is if you decide you're done with watching movies forever. And if you change your mind later and resubscribe, you're going to immediately regain access to all those same movies you had access to before.

Same thing for PS+... if you enjoy playing games you are going to want to continue playing games indefinitely; the only time you're going to cancel your membership is if the day comes when you decide you're done with playing games, for good. And just like Netflix, if you decide later on that you made a mistake and you choose to resubscribe, you immediately regain access to all those games you had before.

*Also, that is not even adding in the dollar value of all the great discounts you get from a PS+ membership, of which all those items really are yours to keep forever, even if you do cancel your membership.

How is that argument not valid? If Sony changes the promo, you lose all those games. If Sony releases a new console, support could be dropped so you lose all those games. If Sony sneezes, you could lose all those games. Essentially, you are just renting.

Hypothetical situations do not make up a valid argument.

If your apartment explodes, you'll lose all your games. If you get robbed, you'll lose all your games. Therefore, buying retail games is basically just renting them.

1. When Sony brings out the new console, I still have my PS3 and Vita and still have those games on my system. I highly doubt Sony will change the policy for games that were previously downloaded/purchased since it's on older systems.

2. This is a BIG seller for Sony right now. MS and Nintendo aren't offering anything like this and PS+ is one of the prime reason's I still have my Vita alongside my PS3. And this is coming from someone who purchased a 360 first and had that for a few years before getting a PS3.

.


Netflix also adds contents constantly, while also let you watch their old content. You get to watch the new and old content as long as your're a subscriber. That's exactly like PS+

They should remain, you just won't be able to launch them (if you aren't an active PS+ subscriber).

Does anyone know the trade in value for Uncharted and Wipeout at GameStop? I'm about to go trade in Gravity Rush at Bestbuy for $20 but the other two only go for $6 each with promo applied.
