Waiting for more PSone games to be released directly to Vita via PSN. Yes, I’m one of the few Vita owners without a PS3, and it’s frustrating. Not that I’m regretting the purchase. Gravity Rush was awesome and the screen size is perfect for Netflix etc. But let’s get some more PSone support while we wait for compelling Vita exclusives to come out.

So, Final Fantasy III is only available for download, or will it be available on UMD as well?

@100: lolirony

@103: I know right. Angry Birds makes the most sense on PS Vita. Yet it’s not supported.

I hope COD-Black Ops Ultimate Bundle comes down in price again even if for a short time, I already have the physical copy, but I prefer digitals for multiple reasons, and the addition of all add-on content made the deal a sweet one, I literally went to the store on the Tuesday it was to be removed and got a $50 psn card, raced home, and missed the sale by approx. 10 mins. My son and I have been patiently awaiting the sale to return.
(The Ultimate Bundle was $46-$47 on the PSN for one week only).

IF this message inspires another sale, I would be extremely happy, especially with Black Ops declassified on the horizon and Black Ops II incoming, a sale would be good for both Sony and Treyarch atm.

legitimate question, when will wake up club be released. you said it would be summer this year and it now fall. I know it cant be that hard to translate something from japanese to engrish

I already have the PS Vita LBP and I’ve never had more fun with my Vita. I’ve even gone back to playing LBP 2. However, when are we going to get all of the features that the PSP has? Like digital comics, internet radio, rss app, and sense me channels. why doesn’t Vita the version of Playstation store have wallpapers. The Vita was suppose to be better than the PSP, an yet it does less in a lot of ways. Sony needs to do a firmware update to the Vita to include PSP features if it wants to impress possible buyers and current owners.

Very interesting drop this week. I’m interested in Tokyo Jungle, One Piece, and maybe Ratchet and Clank if it has a PS Plus discount.

I really hope Koei (or Namco) decides to be reasonable with the pricing of Pirate Warriors. Warriors Orochi 3 was overpriced at $50, but i can understand them not wanting to undercut the retail disk version for xbox 360.
One Piece is ps3 exclusive and only on psn in NA. There is NO excuse for it costing more than $39.99 (though $29.99 is better).

Anyone know if the radio stations had to be altered for the GTA3 PSN release? Just wondering if that was the reason why it was suddenly postponed a few months ago. Getting it regardless, just curious.

How come I have to buy GTA3 to play it on my PS3 when I have the disc sitting 2 feet away? Removing back compat wasnt a cost saving move, it was a money making move, and that’s very obvious.

I really hope they release the Destroy All Humans games onto the PSN or even better, remaster them and release them the way the did with the God Of War games. A lot of people miss those and i am one of them. It would be nice to see them release the third one in America as well. No one here got to play that one and fans of the series would really like to play it.
