After calling up several stores and reading the posts of other CAGers, it seems I might have better luck finding a Bigfoot riding a Unicorn first.

I hope they see how well those PSone classics sold in a flash sale like this and have more like these. 

 

There's a laundry list of classics I'd love to add to my digital collection.

The game works on  vita   BUT  you  MUST OWN   A PS3

 

1... you must download  the game to the ps3.

2..  then you use your  VITA to transfer the game from the  PS3  to  VITA 

3..   Boot up your vita and boom the game is on the vita

 

Warning though

Expect major lag time. No way to skip  taking  part or movie part of the game  (i called it cut screen but  guess they are called something else  THERE IS NO WAY I KNOW TO SKIP THEM  ON THE VITA )  

 

glad it was only 99 cents and not  3 or 4  bucks  cause how bad  the game lags i doubt  i will play it much.   

 

What? 

 

I'm not having any problems with lag with Legend of Dragoon on my Vita at all.

 

Not sure about this whole skipping cut-scene business because I never tried to because they're a big part of the game.

 

Either this is a troll post or someone that has no business playing quality PSX era titles.

PSX games blown up on giant 60 inch HD TVs looks rough and blurry but when it's on the Vita OLED, it looks sharp and clean.

 

Not to say that you should be playing PSX games for their graphic fidelity but it's certainly my preferred method to play PSX games. 

 

I'll mirror the previous sentiments about Wild Arms 1-2 and Legend of Dragoon, those are some of the best RPGs on the PSX ranking up there in the likes of FF7, Chrono Cross and Grandia.

Alright, did the Legend of Dragoon transfer from PS3 -> Vita and it works perfectly fine.

 

Just download the game on your PS3 and use your content manager on the Vita to move the game over to the Vita with fuss and it'll install automatically.

Huh? HUH?! Can someone please try this out? :shock:

I'm downloading the game on my PS3 now to see if the transfer will work. 

 

Will report in after testing.

Opinions on the Ys series?  I'm interested in Memories of Celcetta after seeing some gameplay from Seven and noticing that they appear to be similar.  I know the originals are different and have a unique battle system.  Is this unique battle system good?  And, if I were to start the series, what games should I pick up on sale?

 

Love the series, played all the ones that made it to the states and liked all of them minus 1/2. 

 

Memories of Celcetta is very similiar to Ys Seven as you control three characters with different skills/strengths but it also adds new mechanics like a flash guard and dodge that allows for special effects if you block or dodge an attack just at the right moment to get a big boost in your attacks.

 

You also level up skills as you use them and upgrade equipment to add properties to them. It's a bit light on the puzzle side but the action is quick and satisfying.

 

The story is standard Ys fare but it keeps the plot moving at a brisk pace with a new emphasis on exploration along with combat so there's some fresh new ideas thrown into the mix on top of the tried and true formula.

 

I recommend it.

Here's a video of me playing the game that I recorded as a companion piece to the review I wrote if you're wondering what the game is like.

For those running out of space, don't forget to also delete installed data from your disc content that you no longer play.

 

I looked through my files and ended up freeing up over 30 gigs in installed data from my 500g hdd strictly from games I played as a rental.
