Maybe I'm missing something, but I can't think of any examples of Namco doing a GOTY/Ultimate Edition of any of their games. So that seems like an unlikely thing to occur.


I can't tell if you're denying the existence of the Prepare to Die edition (which is wrong) or saying that Namco doesn't re-release games in the US (which is right).

The Top-Selling PSN Content for January 2013:

2013 is already onto a great start. Exploring the unknown and painting the world with depth via black paint, The Unfinished Swan takes the lead for the top PS3 & PSN sellers for January. This highly unusual and unforgettable game is both absorbing, and gorgeous in its subtlety.

Other titles of note include Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Far Cry 3, TOKYO JUNGLE — all spectacular examples of their individual genres. Zooming into hearts and top 10 in a couple of the lists is LittleBigPlanet Karting — a whimsical take on the standard kart game, completely full of fun that only Sackboy and friends can provide.

Among the Add-ons and DLC, there’s no surprise that Call of Duty: Black Ops II’s Season Pass blasts all the way to #1, with Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt from Borderlands 2 coming in a near 2nd place.

Curious to see which games European players are picking up? Head over to the EU PS.Blog to see their top sellers.

I'm saying that I can't recall Namco re-releasing games with all of the DLC, which are typically labeled as GOTY or Ultimate/Complete Editions. I know they released Dark Souls on the PC with extra content, but I've yet to see anything about it coming to PS3/Xbox 360 and I don't see a history of re-releases to suggest that it's likely to happen.

And that's where you're wrong. The Prepare to Die edition (or 'with Artorias of the Abyss' version) was released on both ps3 and 360 in Japan and Europe. A US version wouldn't be that outrageous.

EU and Jap get all kinds of things that the US doesn't... I would take the length of time since those came out to be a good sign that we won't be getting them. It's been since Oct and we haven't even heard a rumor about it? I'm going to say it's pretty much a sure bet that we won't get them.

Only issue is it doesn't work on most devices, including the iPad.

Why not come out and say that instead of being a jerk about it? I said I might have missed something since I haven't paid much attention to the game at all.

What are the chances that the sale on Dark Souls' DLC is a last ditch effort to get some digital sales before they announce the U.S. release of Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition?



I would hold on to the vanilla edition, so much fun with the base unpatched game like Bottomless Box glitching, item cloning, infinite humanities, etc.

No big surprise to see that the deep discounts helped spur big sales numbers. Hopefully that encourages them to do more. :)

I really enjoyed Rocketbirds on the PS3, I never got a chance to do the co-op campaign though. Depending on what the discount is, I may be tempted to re-buy it.

Caved on FF4 Complete and Dissidia 012. Have a bunch of GS credit, and $10 each seems like the right price to get them on my Vita. And dang do the fancy new sprites in FF4 look nice on the Vita's screen!

The only thing I can't believe is that I'm interested in playing yet another iteration of this game. SNES, GBA, DS 3D remake, and I'm pretty sure I played the PSX port of the SNES cart, too. Oh well!

Really wish FF6 would get some love. Even a high-res version of FF6 ala the PSP FF4 Complete would be an instant purchase.

So, this has probably been asked many times, but just wanted to make sure:

All of the FF games are self contained and can therefore be played in any order, correct?

Thanks

Considering the universal acclaim for FF6, it's rather shocking how little they've done with the FF6 game in terms of remakes/spin-offs and such.

Yup. play in any order but I would play in order just so it feels like the graphics are getting better and better.

Just to make sure I don't throw my Vita across the train when I'm commuting to work...

What is the safest way to leave where I left off if I need to put away my Vita and there is no save point nearby in any of the PSone FF games? Do I simply hit the PlayStation button in order to suspend gameplay?

Yeah, it'll pause the game and you can press the power button on top to put it to sleep.

That's what I do. The Vita battery lasts surprisingly long when not turned off but simply locked. I'll forget I left it on a few days and I'll come back and it'll still have a pretty decent charge.

On another note, the work they put into FFIV complete is amazing. It looks so gorgeous on the Vita's screen. :drool:

Question: So the PS3 i have will play PS1 games. But they look worse than they did on the PS1. I am not sure if this is because its a PS1 disc on an HDTV or because its just an old game. So my question is if i buy the downloadable version is it graphically better? I know its not an HD remake but is there a difference?

Or is there some setting i can change?

i do miss the glitches you could cause by sketching an invisible character with Relm, aka reviving General Leo etc mayhem you could do on SNES.

It's because it's an HDTV; it'd look just as bad (maybe worse) if you managed to hook up an actual PSOne to it. You can fiddle with the settings that you can pull up with the home button to change the scale and add a bilinear filtering effect, but that's all. It's worth mentioning that the games tend to look loads better on the Vita in my experience/opinion.

Previous poster has it right as to the whys of the poor picture quality. There are some settings you can tweak on both your PS3 and HDTV but it would be a personal preference thing.
