I'm so glad I decided to get Psychonauts and Unfinished Swan before the deal ended!

Too bad I have to wait all day for them both to download...

Dammit why can't Madden be that price on 360 GoD, all of the UTM cards I got from when I rented it (bunch of bonus cards for having played older Maddens) are on the 360 version.


It should be 39.99 on xbl I got an E-mail for it

Just in case you forgot, Cubixx is the free PSM game for the next week:

Is this the mini version remade for PSM?
It's telling me not to turn off my PSP while saving to the Memory Stick. :?:

Anyone else having issues with the store (I've been on the new webstore as well as on my Vita)? I keep getting a bad password error and I've reset it 3 times. At least I was able to queue up Ninja Gaiden.. :/

EDIT: Finally got it to work. Don't know what the problem was, but I can access my account now. Downloading the PSM freebie Cubixx.

So Ninja Gaiden Sigma for Vita is only free to play until your PS+ expires, right?

$39.99 does not equal $23 PS Plus price. Yeah it's on sale at GS as well for $40 but that's twice the PS Plus price.

Just started Ninja Gaiden. Good graphics. Gonna have to really practice climbing.

I like how you can touch the screen then use the right analog stick or motion control(holding your Vita up, down, left, right) to look around from where you're standing. Haven't found any other touchscreen functions, yet.

Digital releases are also cross-buy. So yes, if you buy the digital release it will come with the Vita version.

Huh. Vice City only takes up 3.6 GB? Not bad. But what I really wanna know is, when -- or if -- we're getting a demo for Aliens: Colonial Marines?

Is it just my Vita, or do PSN Store downloads crawl? It's saying it'll take 650+ minutes to download the 2.3GB for NGS+. It's always been this slow downloading updates and new content. My PS3 is relatively fast and my other wireless devices are not even close to this slow. What gives?

EDIT: Damn, I went through all the trouble of updating MediaGo and the Content Manager Assistant to try downloading on my PC first. You can only download PSP games from PSN and transfer it over to your Vita, not Vita games.

It's just your Vita. My NGS+ download on a hotel wifi took bout 20-30 mins i think. I started it up and forgot about it and checked and it was done... but not near too long.

i was watching Event Horizon in anticipation for Dead Space 3. while working. hard.

No its not just your Vita. Mine does that too. Its ridiculous i get such horrible speeds with it. I get like a 1 bar signal strength most of the time even standing right next to the router. Its the only device i have that does that. I think when i checked it was like 4mbs or something?

Ive just totally given up and chalked it up to a shit wireless card. I d.load all my games on the PS3 now and transfer them over that way. Thats the only solution. ITs a new vita too, one of the Assassins creed bundles.

By the way with all these great PS+ deals i think im gonna run outa room on my memory card soon, yeesh Sony! I was actually wondering. Some games they have on PS+ i actually own copies of but didn't open. Since Vita games come with no manuals (Screw you sony, thats friggin lame), i planned on keeping my copies sealed and doing the PS+ versions to play. I was just wondering: When PS+ expires can i just start using the cart copy and keep playing with the existing saves and stuff? Or will that cause a problem? Also will it put 2 icons on my Vita doing that?

My Vita typically downloads stuff pretty quickly. However I will say that it took a while to download that update yesterday. Like...30 minutes. Was kind of shocked it took that long because it is usually so fast. Didn't take very long to download Ninja Gaiden after it went free though.

I like how you can touch the screen then use the right analog stick or motion control(holding your Vita up, down, left, right) to look around from where you're standing. Haven't found any other touchscreen functions, yet.



The touch controls are indeed very fun and well executed. Using your bow and arrow, you can touch the screen to enter first person mode and then it'll shoot an arrow to wherever you touch on the screen. No need to aim a reticle w/ the right stick.

Also, using Ninpo attacks utilize the rear touch to tap kanji on the screen in order to cast higher potency versions. iirc, on the ps360, you had to hold the ninpo buttons in order to charge it up.

So far, I think it's a great port...the graphics look just about spot on to the ps3 version. Unfortunately, i think the camera feels way more erratic than the console version and running feels way more slidey, like on ice, than on the console. It has been a while so maybe I just can't remember.

I had forgotten how relentless this game was. I don't even consider it "hard"...I think it's just flat cheap with all of the off-screen antics while you're fighting other enemies.

Hmm...probably not the right place to discuss this, but this R&C FFA thing is getting interesting. Websites are now reporting the Vita version has been canceled, which doesn't really make sense. But Insomniac issued a message saying that they basically can't say anything about it, per Sony. I didn't know this, but Insomniac was not porting it over to the Vita, and has no interest to ever develop for the Vita. The developer is a company called Tin Giant, which apparently has no discernible footprint on the internet.

Hopefully this game surfaces and is playable. It's definitely the reason I bought R&C FFA.

EDIT: After doing some internet sleuthing, it looks like Tin Giant probably at least exists, and probably have something to do with the Idol Minds, the developer who ported the R&C HD Collection. Yes, I'm bored.
