I tried the demo for Space Channel 5 Part 2 on Xbox 360 because (as is often the case) PSN doesn't have a demo for it. I liked it and found it fairly easy to do the right moves on the Xbox 360. Since it was 400 points on XBLA vs. $2.99 for PSN+ here, I bought the PS3 version off PSN. As Arnie might say that might have been a "big mistake".

Why? Because most of the time when I repeat the moves correctly with what I think is the right timing, the PS3 buzzes at me and I soon lose. On the Xbox 360 it rarely ever buzzed at me. After repeatedly failing on the PS3 I went back to the Xbox 360 demo version and once again I rarely missed a move. So I'm thinking something is wrong with the PS3 version or there's a trick to it.

So I read the few full reviews that exist and then Googled to see if anyone mentioned timing issues on the PS3 anywhere or in the game's FAQ. I couldn't find a single word about it.

Someone familiar with the PS3 game, please help me... is the PS3 version messed up or more difficult or is there a trick or some cue to know when to start my moves? I'd rather not have to buy it again on the Xbox 360 just because the PS3 version is unplayable for me. Unfortunately I don't see a tutorial or practice area in the game. I have to go through all of the introduction to try again.

Looks like that discount on Sleeping Dogs by buying Hitman: Absolution drops it to $24.99, which is mentioned in the description for Absolution.

Though atm I'm trying to decide whether or not to replace it with the full front covering Persona 4 one.


The documentation with the Persona 4 skin explicitly says its screen cover is not meant to protect the screen.

http://blog.us.plays...2-new-releases/

The Drop for this week:

PS3

Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault - (Also on PSN/PS Vita: Jan 2013) – Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault returns to the series’ classic feel, camera, controls and weapons, while innovating and giving you a whole new way to play. Even better, the addition of online features means you can experience the fun with your friends.

PSN

Ace Combat Assault Horizon – Ace Combat Assault Horizon intensifies the franchise, escalating combat to the next level with aircraft that are literally torn apart, spewing oil and debris across the sky. Players will engage in combat across the globe, dodging skyscrapers, and turning their enemies into fiery supersonic debris in both single player and online multiplayer. Never before has combat been so fast and in-your-face!

Men in Black: Alien Crisis – Join the Men in Black as Peter Delacoeur, a MIB Agent in training assigned to unearth enemy aliens who are planning to destroy planet Earth. With hidden surveillance and stealthy guards on the prowl, players must ambush confidential alien intelligence and stop all alien attacks. Men In Black: Alien Crisis brings exciting, realistic MIB Agent movements as players shoot, and dodge their way through action-packed levels to escape fierce alien assaults. Play through the game in two-player split-screen action or test your MIB skills against your friends in four-person “hot-seat” competitive action.

Phineas and Ferb: Across the Second Dimension (PS Vita/PSP) – Fans will have the ability to play as one of eight characters including Phineas, Ferb or Agent P and overcome obstacles, use wacky gadgets unique to each character to defeat enemies. In addition, players can collect items, upgrade gadgets and unlock new playable characters while navigating through 24 thrilling levels in a quest to battle the evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz and his robot army to save the world.

Fighting Vipers – Fighting Vipers brings fast-paced, brutal street-fighting action to the PS3.

Sonic the Fighters – A port of the Sega arcade game, featuring favorite Sonic characters fighting each other with unique special moves.

Virtua Fighter 2 – The first true 3D polygonal fighting game, Virtua Fighter brought to the table life-like animations and a fighting system that favored realism over fireballs and dragon punches. With Virtua Fighter 2, the series hit full stride with improved animations, a significant increase in the moves arsenal, fully texture-mapped graphics and a much speedier pace. While other 3D fighters may have implemented differing fighting systems, the influence and impact that Virtua Fighter 2 made is undeniable. The rest, as they say, is history.

Demos

LEGO Lord of the Rings
Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal

Here's a suggestion for an alternate deal:

With the release of the new PS3/Vita Need for Speed: Most Wanted (Criterion), it appears that EA has removed the PS2 Classics version of the original NFS Most Wanted (Black Box) from the PSN store. Gamestop, however, still has the older title available for $9.99:

Can anyone recommend a good case and screen protector? I heard the Vita screen scratches easily.


http://www.amazon.co...rustmaster vita

That's what I use. It's sturdy, and doesn't make me feel scared for my Vita when it's in my backpack.

I just put my P4 skin directly ontop of my normal screen protector.

Little thick around the PS button edges, but it's really not bad.

If it covers it, wouldn't that be considered protection lol?

That depends on the protection. Your baseball cap covers your head, but I wouldn't wear it riding a motorcycle

Anyone know how much that Sonic Fighting game will be? I have heard that it was awful, but if its $5 I will probably pick it up anyway for laughs.

Sideways and Swords n Soldiers have already been free. Think I played Swords once and then dumped it.

Is that untold legends for the PSP? Just a hack n slash?

Yeah, and it's not worth buying, imo. Sideways was fun at first, but it got stale for me pretty fast. Dumped Swords and Soldiers too after an initial try.
