@127, Sevyne, I think it does matter. If a user has 3/10 games (for example) within a 3 month period of a console’s release, I won’t judge a person’s taste but in a business point of view you can’t please everybody. If you’re referring to my previous comment; tdawgx (comment 119) either lied or uses a diff. acct.

I agree that Sony needs to address the PSP community- I’m hoping for a E3 announcement.


152

+ Sevyne on April 25th, 2012 at 4:19 pm said:

@luvtoseek The reason I say how many games he has finished on Vita doesn’t matter is because it had nothing to do with the point being made. I’m not even sure why he even mentioned the Vita games in the first place when most of his post was referring to PSP/PS1 classic support.

If he lied about the Vita games then shame on him for that. I agree that it’s stupid to lie about those things, but it’s irrelevant to the actual point.

150MB for cloud saves is far from enough. At 1st it was okay, but right now I have to choose carefully which games I will cloud save…


154

+ luvtoseek on April 25th, 2012 at 5:03 pm said:

@152, Sevyne, okay, fair enough. However, he was gloating about beating all his 5 Vita games, which looks to be a lie. I’m all for PSP/PS1 support. When that day comes, the Vita will def. have a massive collection on content dating back decades.


155

+ luvtoseek on April 25th, 2012 at 5:41 pm said:

…furthermore

I really admire those Vita owners that have finished or plat’ed (!) 4 or more titles already. The Vita born only 3 months ago & having done that takes a certain skill… in which I wish I had, haha.


156

+ Sevyne on April 25th, 2012 at 5:57 pm said:

@luvtoseek Yeah I have like 12 Vita games myself and could complete them (not talking trophies since I’m not a trophy hunter) pretty fast, but I’d much rather take my time and enjoy the ones I do have. I do find myself playing my PSP games more and more though on it (the ones that are supported) as most of them look much nicer than they did on the PSP. I just want the PS1 classic support mostly to have FF9 on the go again since I no longer have my PSP and remote play for PS1 classics looks like garbage imo.

@Morgan Haro

I know at this point it’s probably a lost cause looking for any kind of reply since the thread is 2 days old, may as well be 2 years old, but anyway, on to my question….

Why do the PSN prices not reflect the retail prices? Silent Hill: Shattered Memories for PSP is $19.99 for the UMD but the download through the PSN is $29.99. I want to download it because I heard it is one that is transferable to the Vita from the PS3 and I no longer have a PSP since it was traded for the VIta, but I also don’t want to be charged an extra $10 for it. Please answer this. I’ve asked this before and never got a response. Hopefully, if you don’t reply, you will see this and bring it to someones attention and I will see a price change on it next week.

@57 MarinaLightyears

Thanks for the info. It brings up a couple of questions.

1. Why would SCEA have problems releasing them seperately when they are supposed to be “minis”?

2. If they need to be bundled, then what is the problem and delay for that?

SNK has been getting away with releasing their classics as standalones when they should be an SNK compilation pack. So why can’t Arkedo, a really good dev, release their games seperately?

Thanks again for the information though.

+ Tigerriot on April 27th, 2012 at 5:38 am said:

I just wanted to add to the chorus of people asking why Hot Shots still doesn’t have trophies. You go back and add 3D and Move support, but not trophies? That’s just dumb. The trophies alone would have resulted in a fair amount of new sales. 3D and Move support will not.

+ rjejr on April 27th, 2012 at 8:25 am said:

Thanks PSN for releasing Bejeweled 3 this week, I think you inspired Gamestop to ride your advertising muscle and offer Bejeweled 3, Zuma, and Feeding Frenzy 2 on 1 disc for $10, a $35 PSN value, so a savings for me of $25. Oh, and Zuma isn’t worth more than $1.99, it looks and plays like a shovelware mini.

+ JKC31 on April 28th, 2012 at 10:52 pm said:

SOE released Zuma years back and it has been removed from the store. Now It’s back up by CS and looks to be the same game. I don’t want to buy the same thing twice and is awful not to note this.
