There's one more LRG Vita game, right? I'm drawing a blank but seem to recall another title showed up in some blind boxes.

That's the third code that works--all 3 provide the same discount, so it's just a matter of preference.

I ordered just Xeno Crisis and used my $6 in coins balance for a extra discount. I forgot about coupon codes so I'm not sure if they stack.  I will try next time I place an order as I have more coins pending in my account.

None of the $3 off codes work anymore? I'm hoping VGPC gets Xeno.

 

Edit: They actually have it but it's more expensive. ~$44 USD shipped.

I had $8.50 in coins and $3.50 with the code put it back to ~$68.xx so basically what it was before shipping. Coins and codes do stack. I am looking forward to the soccer rpg hope it is good. Still no twin breakers for me.

I was excited to see vgp get some of these releases, but the reality is they need to make money too and it is generally the same as going through the "original" company even if there is free shipping.

Appreciate your mentioning this. Was distracted and forgot to put in code. CS credited me $3.50. Took some of the bite out of shipping.

Does Xeno Crisis have PSTV support?

Yes, according to the Play-Asia page:

 

Play solo or local co-op (PSTV) with a friend!

I think Super Meat Boy will be a blood bath with way too low of a print run since PS Vita carts have been thinning out for awhile now. And it’s a cult classic indie that has brutal difficulty. I know it’s prob not gonna have the beloved OG soundtrack. The Xbox 360 backwards compatible version does though. It didn’t make it over to the PSN version due to licensing issues iirc. But I do hope they go with this same cover. I feel it shouldn’t be any other cover, imo, for this particular game. Obviously the shade of red will always vary a bit, but still.

That PS4 version pictured is a Europe only release iirc. Got it for about $19 bucks shipped off eBay from some UK based seller a few years back.0936BCE3-8F2B-4F9C-832D-FAB3FDC923AB.jpeg

Pretty sure Josh mentioned a while back that they did a larger than normal order on that one because they expected the high demand.  They already have the copies in stock but just haven't taken orders yet.

Whooof, one of the very last NA Vita releases. It's gonna be a bloodbath.

 

I'm playing around with a little Custom Firmware on one of my spare PSTV's. The Vita lives still, in one form or another. And now one of the final commercial releases. End of an era.

Finished setting up CFW on two of my PSTVs, one that I used to keep at my parent's place, and one that I had given to my brother. He's got a kid on the way, and was cleaning up his house. He just got a Switch and handed his old PSTV back to me.

 

So far, the biggest advantage, BY FAR, of having custom firmware on these things is the ability to use the USB port in the back in conjunction with a thumb drive. No more piddly little 8-gig sticks prone to failure for this Vita gamer, no sir! Now I'm sporting 256 gigs, and dumping tons of my PSN games onto this diminutive system. I also installed the recently released sharp-scaler plugin, and that is pretty keen as well. It lets you take fine-tuned control of how the PSTV handles picture scaling, including options for integer-scaled PSP and PS1 titles. Next on the list I'll be loading an app for disabling whitelisting, so I can FINALLY play the Dracula X Chronicles on my PSTV.

Friggin finally. It only took them 90+ vita releases to get it right just in time for the last two.

Little update on my Vita CFW experiments...

 

USB thumb-drives work great. I believe that the PSTV is built without USB 3.0 support, so you're better off sticking to a 2.0 USB drive. A 3.0 drive would likely work, but don't use a 3.1 drive. 3.1 drives often require more electricity. I was NOT able to get an external hard drive working. The specific drive I tested was a 500 GB WD Passport. I'm not sure if its the size, or the power requirements, or the formatting. But experimenting with HDD USB support was a bust. Right now I'm mainly using a 256 GB USB 2.0 Sandisk thumb-drive, and it's working great.

 

If you aren't content with the number of USB ports on your PSTV (there is only one) you do have the option of using a USB hub. I tested two hubs, one regular and one with independent power. Neither worked with the HDD, but both of them work just fine with the thumb drive. With a hub plugged in, you can register a controller and even charge a controller while accessing the thumb drive at the same time, no problem.

 

As far as games are concerned, I'm basically able to now do whatever I want with the PSTV. I got a black-list plugin that completely negates any game disabling on the system. Backing up games is quick and easy. Installing homebrew applications and games is also relatively low-maintenance. Right now I'm just seeing how much I can squeeze into the 256 GB I'm working with from my PSN account. Good stuff. If any of you have a PSTV tucked away in a closet from when they were getting cleared out, it might be time to dust it off.

Is this a new hack?  I have a pstv... where did you go for instructions?

The Black-list plugin that I'm using is called "DolcePolce". And yes, it is actually fairly recent. The scaling plugin I'm using is called SharpScale, and it only came out this year. I'm not going to provide any specific instructions. A quick google search can and will get you whatever information on this subject you want. It isn't difficult to find in the slightest. The Vita is a quasi-dead platform, so some of the only people interested in this topic are the primary crowd posting information and articles about it as well. All the information you would want to know will be the first to show up in a search.

 

Over the weekend, I was able to hack all four of the PSTVs I have in my possession, as well as my original model 1000 OLED Vita. The difficulty varies based on the firmware you have installed on your device, but I got all five units set up as desired. I also got an SD card adapter that I'm going to play around with. I'm around 60+ titles deep on backing up, and still have a lot more to handle. (my Vita collecting went fairly well over the years) In another week or so I should be finished. Now that I've got everything in a stable state, there's no particular hurry.

Appreciate that share, no reflection on you but sure seems like Walmart clearance pricing....or has Covid made these prices reasonable?
