- Final Fantasy III better be PS Vita Compatible
- Final Fantasy III better bot be over $19.99 cause I made a rule not to buy PSP games over that price.
- Why can’t you guys get Final Fantasy I anniversary and Final Fantasy II on PSP up yet!?
- Fix the damn Facebook app on the Vita, it’s unbelievable sony allows such a currupted update to be on the app. The app closes every time i use it and i redl atleast 5 times
- Can we get a update that allows a option to turn off the adhoc signal. Every time I play SEGA Genesis Collection on Vita is shuts down my wifi and I can’t stop it cause you have to turn off adhoc manually
- Can you guys get some screenshots or something of the PS Vita version of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. I wanna know exactly how it looks compared to the ps3 game. But haven’t seen it, just hear its the same engine as the ps3 and same framerate. Which is great. But I wanna see how it is exactly.
- Where is Crackle on PS Vita like announced at E3 as summer!! Summers done… I missed Samurai X cause I was waiting for the PS Vita app and falls here and STILL no Crackle. Hopefully Crunchyroll doesn’t get this same treatment, been dying to watch fairy tails new weekly ep on the go

Wish DOA had a demo too instead of the worthless ones we got this week. Want to know if it’s crappy like Ninja Gaiden 3 or actually good.

I enjoyed Ninja Gaiden 3 I ignored all the the trashing of the game and bought it anyway and I am happy I did.

+ Sevyne on September 23rd, 2012 at 7:53 pm said:

Getting Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit (actually surprised nobody has even commented on that game). Definitely skipping FFIII though. I know it’ll end up being $30 and I wouldn’t even spend $20 on it. It’s a slightly polished DS port of one of the worst games in the series. No thank you.


73

+ gearhead32 on September 23rd, 2012 at 8:00 pm said:

@72 I have watched videos about Hell Yeah! and it looks like a crazy fun game I am planning on getting it as well.

Great Drop! I’m for sure getting Tokyo Jungle and GTA III. I would get LBP Vita but I ended up buying it at Gamestop last week. I can’t wait to play GTA III again. And Tokyo Jungle looks like an interesting game.

+ Elvick_ on September 23rd, 2012 at 10:47 pm said:

@35: PSP is not dead at all. It’s a Japanese game. The PSP is still selling a ton in Japan. It makes perfect sense for a Japanese company to release PSP games.

Be happy that Square Enix bothered to bring the lazy cash in to PSN for North America at all.

And they won’t waste development money on releasing FFIII of all things on PS Vita and PS3. Don’t kid yourself. FFIII is their step-child. They don’t care about it. That’s why the PSP game is a port of a DS game. A DS game that sucks.

Already got LBP for the Vita, getting the CE of DoA 5 on Tuesday!

Will probably pick up Tokyo Jungle and One Piece too!

Unfortunately, it seems like GTA III won’t be getting an HD version with trophies. :(


96

+ iTofuMan on September 23rd, 2012 at 11:23 pm said:

I gotta say for once this is a decent update! i mean LBP is nice despite retail buyers getting it early even though they could have released it last week, or give some type of compensation to digital users as it just shows they favor retail buyer than digital buyers. Although despite that i probably cant get it.

One Piece is a buy for me. granted i havent been keeping up with the anime or manga but i enjoy the games that have been released for it and its nice to finally get a current gen release for this series. I hope that if this sells well we get more from the series.

Final Fantasy 3 is nice. i still have the ds version nd will probably get the psp version in time.

I hope we actually get GTA 3 this time. how many times have they claim it to be released only to cancel it and say it will be out later.
