Surprise Rogue hasn't found its way to xb1 or ps4 in a premium edition version. I imagine in 6 months we will see one between the annual AC releases.

The Vits is like the inverse Dreamcast. Sega had to make and publish the majority of the good games to try to keep it afloat while everybody but Sony is doing what they can for this handheld. If Sony just partnered up with publishers to release better ports of 3ds games, Sony could turn this around. Instead, they tout indie games as if they are something of note. Indie will not move hardware, but it does look like easy PS Plus fodder while PSN in Japan gets real hits.

In Topic: PSN Flash Sale This Weekend

Looks like my wallet is safe this weekend with a heaping pile of Indy games for this sale. With limited time and so many good commercial games, I just don't have time or money to spend on Indy titles. Some of their commercial games were well-priced; but when the price is comparable to physical, why bother?

Just a heads up for those on the fence for Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 for Vita which just came out digitally for Vita, there is a demo for it on PSN Japan.  It is very short, but it gets the point through well enough.  Like Dynasty Warriors or Samurai Warriors, you pick your main character, but you work as a team with your other members are spread across your typical map.  However, remember when you would be kicking butt, but your allies would have their bottoms handed to them?  Well, you can just tap on your other party members to fight for the next objective instead of just having your individual character running from one end of the map to the other.  

 

A few other demos I tried out included that new Taiko Drum Machine game for the Vita.  It has two songs, one from Ridge Racer and another.  It was pretty straight forward with lots of colorful entertaining things going on while you try to keep to the rhythm like the Hatsune Miku game.  If you like one, you will probably like the other.  Kind of wish I would have picked up the PS2 game with the drum set.  Oh well...

 

The God Eater 2 (didn't try GE2 Burst) demo did a decent amount of hand holding to tell you where to go next.  I don't know a lick of reading Japanese, and it was pretty easy navigating.  If you played the US PSP game God Eater Burst, you will be very familiar with the controls.  I am really hoping that Bandai Namco gets their act right on this.  

 

I was on the fence on that NIS game htol#niq game when it said that you could not use directional buttons.  I just tried the demo off of PSN Japan, and I have to say it is pretty nifty using the front and rear touch screens.  I kind of wish I would have preordered the game, because now it is more than I am willing to spend.  However, I definitely have to say it has better appearance than say Dokoru which got a physical release in Japan by Game Arts and got a digital release here.  Dokoru is alright as I picked it up for like $3 on a sale.  

 

I still have not tried out PSO 2.  The game download is 3 gb, but then it wants an additional 3+ gb download.  Sadly, my extra 8gb card that I have for free PSN Japan games and demos will have to hold off on that.
