Then you notice the inconsistent framerate. Seeing it can go to 60 FPS makes it all the more worrisome.


Well the game doesn't even come out until September so I imagine they have time to fine tune the game more since it more than likely isn't completed yet.

Developers often say that optimizations are one of the last things done before the game ships. Like Wompdevil said: there's plenty of time for them to fine tune things.

Sleeping Dogs is gonna be free for EU PS+ members in February. Man I hope there's a shot at that coming to US as well...


Just make a Europe account.

US is getting Far Cry 2 on Valentine's Day.

That's what I am hoping especially considering that the Ultimate addition is on sale as well right now.

Can we get some confirmation before you call Sony liars? They were up front about the delays (although it was too late to change the box art), so you should just be annoyed at this point.

The Vita version is the main reason I bought the game too. I will certainly be disappointed and would expect some sort of remuneration if it doesn't come out.


Same here. Bought it thinking I would get the vita version which I would play way more. I'm gonna be pissed if it doesn't come out.




Yesterday was the last PSN store update for the month of January. We were told end of January the game would be available. It isn't. That's a lie.

Why don't you step it up and just say they lied about releasing it alongside the PS3 version? Don't settle for complaining about a second delay. Focus on the original lie.

Same here. A friend and I bought that during a road trip on release week, specifically for the vita copy so we could play on our travels. Of course that didn't happen because sony LIED about the crossbuy feature. And if it never happens, I'll be returning my opened copy.


Shit happens... Would you prefer Sony just said "We will publish it when it's done"? They gave a release date, they couldn't make good, they informed fans. Also don't forget that Sony offered some free DLC for FFA over the first delay...

By purchasing Full Frontal Assault for PS3, which launches on November 27, players will still get the portable edition for Vita with cross-save and cross-play functionality when it's done next year. To make up for the delay, the first downloadable content -- the Mini-Boss Skin Pack, pictured below -- will be given out as a freebie to those buyers.

Sure this sucks, but this isn't the first time it happened. Hopefully it will go better, but I am still waiting on my Resistance Burning Skies avatars...

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.

Never checked the date its last year sorry. Epic fail.

Still make a EU account if you want Sleeping Dogs.

I'm hoping we get Dead Space 1 or 2 with 3 coming out next week.

Pardon the ignorance if this has been covered, I'm new to PS+...But wouldn't you need another PS+ subscription if you did that? It kind of defeats the purpose to spend 35-50 on a new PS+ sub for Europe when you could just buy Sleeping Dogs for 10-20.

Well, plus all the future games that EU will get that are always better than the US. So, the potential value is definitely there.

If you just want Sleeping Dogs yet its a waste, but that's a 3 month subscription which EU always gets the better games. Also they have a sale Tuesday which their price is 7.99 which is around $11 US.

Just keep in mind having two plus accounts wouldn't be any good for the Vita as only one account can be linked to it at a time(and games from another account can't be played). .

EU also tends to do free 1 months (like the Facebook promo), so you could get Sleeping Dogs for free. The only issue would be getting a CC that worked in Europe.

I feel the same as you, the SD demo didn't win me over really, but admittedly that genre's not my thing, but if free I would give it a whirl. Racers weren't the favorite thing in that genre poll they did for + a couple weeks back, but I wouldn't mind Motorstorm: Apoc, even as old as it is, I never played it. My super reaching stretch pick for a game if they decide to give us something new for a change like they do for Europe is Dishonored, which they actually used as an example of an "Action game" in the poll I mentioned, so maybe?

Speaking of Sleeping Dogs, I had no idea the same developers were behind Little Big Planet Karting. LBPK isn't a bad game by any means, but it's definitely missing that "je ne sais quoi". It just needed some more time and love. Sleeping Dogs, on the other hand, is brilliant. Best open world game this gen, so it's disappointing that they couldn't apply that same finesse to the barren wasteland that LBPK appears to be.

Do those even exist for Assassins Creed? I know the deluxe version of ACII was released in UK but IIRC it is pretty rare and you sure as hell won't find it cheaper than the $10 PSN has it for. I don't think they exist at all for Brotherhood/Revelations.

I am actually working through ACII, it is pretty damn fun. I reckon I will pick up Brotherhood now since the disc is a little pricier and had content cut from the game.. All in all I would prefer GOTY versions as well but unless you have a PC that can run these games I think this is about a good as a deal as you will find on ACII and ACB for awhile.

Wouldnt bite on Revelations though unless you just have to have all the maps and DLC. The disc version has gone for as little as $10 before, I bet with some effort you could nab it for under $15.


No they don't in the US at least. I was just saying that I don't want digital download, so I'd rather get nothing (and miss out on the DLC) if there won't be a retail release.

I already have all the Assassin's Creed base games on retail, so I'd purchase the GOTY ones specifically for the DLC (and probably trade/sell the non-goty ones).

Since there's no "Ultimate Edition" retail disc, I'll just not experience the DLC. I'm alright with that.

Not unless you want to do a factory reset of the Vita. Like the person who you quoted stated, only one PSN account can be linked to a Vita at any given time.

I quite enjoyed Sleeping Dogs. The missions are varied enough to spice things up and the driving is the best I've seen in any open world game to date. They could come out with a game called Sleeping Dogs Racing and I'd totally pick it up. I'd give Sleeping Dogs my vote for best Sandbox game this gen.

^This. Sleeping Dog has my vote for best Sandbox of this gen.

I love the focus more on fluid combat than just guns. I love that feel you get when you just kung fu someones ass. The missions are pretty cool and story is interesting, won't win any awards. It also helps I love the setting is in Honky Kong.

EDIT: Fixed
