which model would you say is best? And what would be a decent price for it? I really haven't been keeping up with the PSP, because it always seemed rather expensive

Avoid the PSP-3000 unless you absolutely have to have better LCD Response time. Image quality on a whole is degraded due to sawtooth like interlacing artifacts ,over saturated colors and poor screen uniformity

Get a PSP-Go and hack it. It has the best screen out of all of them and 16GB of memory built in(Download any UMD games you own off the net and run them as ISOs off memory once hacked) Or a 2k and hack that.
I'm not sure about the E1k. The screen seems to be the same as the 1k with a slightly lower gamma. It's the only one I have not personally owned or tested so I can't vouch for it's quality. (Other than mono sound and no wifi)

I'm still hoping for a Resident Evil Sale. Since there was Capcom PSP this week. Maybe next week... :p one can hope

If it were a PS3 game, I would. It's still a Vita game unless the PS Store is lying about it.

Thanks to all for the tips re: P3P vs P4G! The prices are so good and with the $50 promo, I think I will grab both and start with P4G. If it's as good as everyone says, I won't have any problems dealing with the slight downgrade of mechanics in P3P.

Now, to find a deal on a 32gb stick..

The go also has the ability to connect to a ps3 controller on top of the video out capability, so you can almost have a mini console that is extremely portable. I don't know if they're still selling them, but gamestop might have used Gos for $60. There's also a seller on ebay doing 8 gb m2s for $10.50 (magicgate supported, so legit).

What's the deal with getting free games on the browser PSN store? It has their total in my cart rather than saying $0.00 and I definitely still have plus...

I've heard Persona was a base Yu-gi-oh clone.

You're definitely not the only one. I'm approaching 50 games installed on my Vita, although only about 20 are Vita games.

Is persona 2 at $15 a good deal? Has it ever been cheaper on PSN?

Before, owners of the PS3 version only had the option to buy it for $7.99 despite the PS+ sale, but now it seems like they're fixing the price for us.


Still not fixed for me.

Forget time; I can always make time somewhere. It's the memory card space that kills me. So many games I just can't get to because I'd have to delete too much just to try them out.

I'm so torn on whether or not I should buy Monster Hunter.


Be sure to download adhocParty on your PS3 so you can play the game online. Go to PSN and you will find it under PSP addons.

Is this game any fun playing solo? I want to use adhocParty, but it requires the PS3 to have a wired connection and I don't want a cable going through the stairs.

Weird. Works now. Wonder if it had anything to do with that downtime earlier. Glad I didn't check out earlier.

Has anyone played Capcom Classics Collections on their Vita? I would love to pick em both up. Does the ad-hoc multiplayer work fairly well? Seems like that would be a blast for multiplayer. Are you happy with the way it looks on your Vita?

Eyeing Darkstalkers and Powerstone as well. Any comments on them?

Thanks cagbros!

Its working for vita.

Is Nun Attack worth $3?


i just bought it. it's a battleheart clone, and battleheart on ipad rocks. BH has been cloned to death on ios, but nun attack is supposed to be fun and has trophies, so i can't complain.

same here. my vita is practically replacing my ps3. i spent tonight playing rayman instead of whatever game i was playing on my ps3 (i can't even remember). and let's not even talk about how many hours i've invested into sine mora (and some of those trophies still seem completely out of reach, lol).

Really surprised that Atelier Totori Plus released without any announcement! Does Tecmo Koei even care about marketing the series?

My PS+ ends tomorrow. Do I have to manually deactivate it to prevent automatic resubscribing?

Really hope I can get it back sometime soon. Unless someone here has some PS+ codes they're willing to part with for some guides.

I thought I was done spending money this month, but those Capcom classic collections are tempting.

Will Disgaea 3 Vita saves from the cart based version work on the DD version? Thinking about trading it in since we are getting it from Plus but I don't want to sacrifice the 30 hours I already have on it. :(

Do it, you can easily get 200+ hours of play out of it.


Is Monster Hunter Freedom Unite a good starting point for someone who has never played a Monster Hunter game? I am intrigued by the series but concerned that a PSP game may not look or play as well as I would like and might seem disappointing. Do gameplay and graphics hold up well on the Vita?

Crap... I already have this on my psp... but being able to play this on a larger, hi-res screen is so tempting for $5!

In my limited experience (having not tested this with Disgaea specifically), if you have Plus and you cloud save, you can cloud save from a cart game, delete the cart game info, download the digital copy from PSN and retrieve the cloud save and it'll work ok in the digital copy.

If you can wait until next week I'll be doing exactly that with Disgaea 3 and I'd be happy to report back.
