The latest thing that I have heard about it was in the last sentence of this IGN article posted on 08/12/13.

I was surprised to learn that X and X-2 will be sold separately for the Vita.

 

Yeah, I do remember hearing that now.  I bet if they do release it that it's going to be digital only on PSN for Vita and that's why no one has any info on it.  Which is just awful if you want that art book but not the PS3 version.

PS.Blog post from two weeks ago says it's out later this year for PS3 and Vita.


"Slated" for release this year. To me that wording is tricky. Meaning that we plan on it, but we won't commit to anything. We only have four months left in the year, and it's definitely not coming out in September, unless they surprise release it. Also a September release draws sales away from FFXIV and KH 1.5. I'd consider December a no go. October or November are really it. And the problem with November, is running into next gen launches. I read an article a few weeks ago saying that a lot of EU retailers had changed to October release dates, so I'm still holding out for that.

Actually, it's not bad, I'm just getting extremely frustrated with the Director's Cut DLC. I also absolutely hate touch controls.


Kind of interesting in a semi-Limbo, slow as molasses, touch control way. Normally I hate touch controls as well but it's actually a plus for me being in the same room as a sleeping newborn.

At least the puzzles are manageable to me, unlike Machinarium. Gosh darn that is a frustrating game to me. It's one the highest-rated on Vita and I really wanted to like it. I just can't stand a game at this point in my life that makes me sit in frustration for minutes having no clue what to do. I just want to be entertained and move on. I give up with that one.

Personally, I don't care if a sale goes on free games later. I'm not going to buy them. I think it's weird that people are obsessed with "ownership" and would ever bother. I do, however, think it's a little shady to put a sale title free IMMEDIATELY after the sale like with Rayman. At least give it a month or two to be less transparent and soften the blow a bit.

So Ico is one of the titles coming up for Plus? I'm interested in the Remote Play for it. Has anyone done it for that game?

People have reported several places having talked to Squenix reps who told them off the record to expect it around February.

Don't forget the complaining when there isn't a sale.

 

yup, yup.  see, the thing is, no  matter when you have a sale, someone out there just bought it last week.

and even if you retro-graded a sale by a week to make that guy happy, there was a guy that bought it a day before that retro-grade into effect.

 

really, there's no way around it.  which is why... buy stuff at a price you're happy with and be happy you have it.

Since pre-order deals suck, I decided I'd get GTA5 on PSN for the gamesharing. The collector in me is crying.

 

Anyway, anyone know of any PSN card deals? Anything at all, even if it's just a $1 in savings? I can't remember the last time I bought a PSN card.

Looks like the BBY deal has finally ended and that was the only thing that's been ongoing lately.

Try the PSN code thread: http://www.cheapassg...8#entry11043834

Usually quite a few people selling them at 10-15% off.

FYI a bunch of upcoming downloadable Ubisoft games that were embargoed until Tuesday got leaked, one of which is an HD version of AC: Liberation.

I always thought Vita games were HD, but I guess Ubisoft is about to prove us wrong.

 

I don't know why they can't just keep the original title. Adding the HD tag to it makes it seem like the Vita version is inferior.

K. Not my intention to drag this debate out (please, please just skip it if you don't "care"), but anyone interested in seeing how Polygon's 243 reviews stack up, the averages are spoiler'd beneath. Maybe this is a bit inconsequential, lol, but it's equally as silly for people to continually make drive-by posts about how such & such publication is "biased". To be clear, I know these averages don't necessarily prove or disprove anything.

Quick, before we start blabbing about review scores, I'm going to bring up a few other dead horses we can beat:

 

- Demon's/Dark souls games are terrible/the best games ever!

- Spelunky =/= Spelunker HD sequel

- What games are going to be free for PS Plus in 2015?

- Final Fantasy!!!

Both have a PS in them. But Spelunky is in a different order, so no comparison. I get what you mean now.

Hahaha. Well, to be fair...that wouldn't be considered "beating a dead horse" since I introduced new information that changes the nature of the debate. I also proved how much of a loser I am, but, oh well.

You didn't need to prove that.

Does anyone know if you preorder GTA V, do you only get the discount on one game or does it apply to the whole Rockstar catelog after that?

if i remember correctly, vita is qHD, or quarter HD.   In practice, it's HD for its screen size, it just technically doesn't fit the definition.

Interesting numbers.  Thanks for sharing.  Makes me want to continue on my list and see how it turns out, especially in regards to big AAA releases.  I see they gave 9s to Guacamelee, Sound Shapes, and Tales from Space which helped raise their PS3 exclusive ratings.  Certainly all great Sony (console) exclusives, but not exactly super high profile games like Killzone Mercenary and The Last of Us.

 

Anyways, you and I will probably have to agree to disagree on this.  But thanks for sharing.  Don't worry about all the other comments, whenever there are Atlus or Final Fantasy sales I have to wade through 100s of posts that I don't care about, generally filled with the same questions.  I know this is less on topic then those conversations, but there's always gonna be some discussion in this thread that doesn't interest a certain portion of the audience.  Oh well.

Where are the pages and pages of praises from people for putting games on sale after they were free to plus? Credit where its due people, a lot of you asked for that to happen.

Think I'm going to pull the trigger on VLR. Almost finished with 999. Any reason to pick the 3DS version over this one?
