cross save support with what?  the ps3 and vita versions? Yep seems they are.  I'm surprised that can work.  Nice if I decide to replay it since i could do ng+ then.

I didn't even consider cross save and sold off my PS3 copies. Oh well, I think I'd rather play them again fresh anyway.

Thankfully those are just discs, so you've still got your saves on your console--assuming that's all it takes to work.

I don't have a lot of experience with cross save, but the games I have you do it through the game.

That's usually how it works. PS3/PS4 to PS Vita usually requires going into a menu in game and saying "Save to Network". The PS4 copy will just read that same data.

"Save files from both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita will work on the PlayStation 4, allowing people to pick up where they left off of start with a completed new game plus file."

 

huh?  So can you pick up and play your Vita saved file on PS4, or not?  The wording is very strange.

Some of these games will be in $19.99 Best Buy Black Friday bargain bins, but that's ok.  I was able to cross several things off the collection wishlist. 

 

Love Gamefly (sales).  I've had very good luck buying from them in the past.  Their games always come complete in like-new, unblemished cases.  It's just too bad that they (and everyone) charge online tax now.

Yes, you'll be able to play your Vita or PS3 saves on the PS4 version. I do not know whether it will let you take your PS4 saves back to the PS3/Vita version though. I haven't specifically read how it works, but I assume it's the usual deal where you have to launch the game and use the cross-save options inside of the game to upload it, which will allow you to pull it onto your PS4 after the game releases. It really should work with the PS+ online storage feature for those with PS+ subs, but I feel like that won't cross their minds for another five years or until they decide to make another portable.

It's also a shared trophy list with the Vita/PS3 version.

My copy is coming today. I'm going to be honest though, the only reason I'm getting it is because it has Starfox in it lol (Switch version)

 

Although I have been reading on Reddit that some people are getting their copies of the deluxe version with the game missing, which is very concerning. Hopefully I'm not affected by the same thing.

NOOOOOOOOOOOO

 

(I should have seen this coming with the cross-save announcement, but now I have to decide if $80+tax for two steelbooks for games I already platted is worth it. I already own the full OSTs.)

I'll probably buy it for the fourth (?) time. I have zero intention of ever replaying it on the PS4. I just want to make sure XSeed keeps translating the series. Though if they announce Cold Steel III without a PC version, I may end up importing my PS3 NG+ save and run through it one final time to ensure it's CS3 compatible.

Looking pretty good.

Totally missed the opportunity to call it Trails of Cold Steelbook.

I guess I'm spoiled from cross buy titles and being able to just copy my save from one system to another.

I actually played it during release trying to save for this.  But blew most of everything when the summer banners hit.  Fanservice was hard to resist lol.  But started saving again and was able to get 2B.  Yay!

Nice haul! I ended up going nuts on the GF sale too hehe.  I ended up grabbing 6 games - AoT 2, Yomawari,The Lost Child, DS Remastered, Kingdom Come, Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle.  I was really close to grabbing Dragon Ball FighterZ also, but at last second decided not to since I didn't know anyone with it.

 

I've been watching for most these games to be sub 20, except for Touhou which was only 10.  I have had great luck with buying from GF too, even though the deal thread for each sale is always filled with people complaining about games not working etc.

Wait, who brags about buying used in the Japanese games thread? I thought this was where everyone came to jerk off to their collections of sealed LEs.

i picked up dbz fighter, I'm always up to play any fighter with cags.

I've always enjoyed gamefly sales and only ever had one disc not play out of dozens but was easily refunded.

i think the bf gamefly sale last year sucked with games being the same price or slightly higher than normal gf sales.

gf use to sell games at ridiculously low single digit prices at the start. Now while still decent are rarely ever that crazy low.

Honestly not quite sure which thread this question belongs in, but anyone order the NEOGEO mini get theirs yet?  I want to know how it is and if it's worth the price.  I have a little time to cancel my order from AMZ.
