@BuM87 Whichever real rpg u wanna throw up there. Everyone likes a diffrent FF. I actually am not a fan of 8 as much as others. My point is we need more actual RPG’s , I agree totally with your suggestions as well. Still i do look forward to a KH collection, Beyond the Beyond sequel, Would also love a new LUNAR.

Nice to see GTA San Andreas being ported. I never played it before and was considering picking up a PS2 version, but all my PS2 controllers are broken, so it’s easier to play this classic edition.

I would like to see Red Dead Revolver being ported as well. Way of the Samurai, Soul of Samurai and Tenchu are on my list of classics too.

@45 Because that’s literally not possible. If it’s that easy, why doesn’t Amazon or iTunes have a global store? They can’t, that’s why. There’s way too many licensing and region related issues for that to ever work. To even comprehend doing something like that would cost much, much more money than any regional store, and would be an absolute technical nightmare.

Also, personally, I’ve really loved the PS+ updates the last few months. I don’t give a care what EU is getting. I’m not in the EU, and if I want those games, many of which are actually crap (like Vanquish) or way over hyped (like Arkham City), I’ll get an EU account. But I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to play a bunch of fun, good games I never would’ve otherwise gotten the chance to, or replaying and getting back into some old favourites like King of Fighters and BioShock 2.

Are people even trying the games they get with Plus? Because most of them are quite good. Or are they just going “Oh, it’s not RDR or Batman, so it must be crap. TIME TO COMPLAIN!”? Because that’s what it seems like is happening.

Any chance you can start posting the prices of games too? It would nice to know how much I need in PSN cards each week.

@95 lol if you seriously believe that Final Fantasy 13 is better than Mass Effect 2 (heck even 3) you have terrible taste in gaming.

@104 actualy i have re5 gold and bioshok2 in a shelve covered in dust since 2010

+ Ryumoau on December 10th, 2012 at 7:36 am said:

I hope at least one of the free Plus games is the Black Knight game, if we have to have a psn game and not retail.

Dear playstation. I would very much like to share some ideas for the vita. First off, i think that sony should try a little harder to sign up with more phone companies in other parts of the world Ex: Canada. I would also like to see improvement inthe web browser. Flash player kaybe? ;D Secondly, I’m interested in the thought of ps2 classics running on the vita. Thirdly, black ops declassified was an awesome release forthe vita. love the controls and online gameplay, but…. Deffinately consider maybe having zombies for an add-on in the near future? Also, facebook has sooo many bugs to work out. The wholeviewing photo posts by people crashes my facebook on the vita consistantly. That and the overall layout tends to lag and it’s deffinately not my internet :P I would just like to shout out that the new youtube is brilliant! Everyhing i expected it to be! Very happyy with channels being surfable :P In overall, keep up the updates! And keep us gamers informed!

+ joeylw on December 10th, 2012 at 8:19 am said:

I am going to guess that we aren’t getting anything on PSN+ in the US tomorrow outside of one or two cheaply made PSN shovelware games for the PS3 and Vita. At least the Sony “Just wait until next week, you won’t be sorry!” guy hasn’t done that lately to falsely get everyone’s hopes up.


114

+ DracoLovesRi on December 10th, 2012 at 8:27 am said:

Don’t forget Z.H.P. and Cladun x2 going on sale.


115

+ Ryumoau on December 10th, 2012 at 8:44 am said:

@112 no one cares about those old psp games.


116

+ Teflon02 on December 10th, 2012 at 9:08 am said:

@57 tell me where the logic is at, how is it impatient to be waiting almost a year for some of the most important psone games to work on Vita, especially when in EU it was working MONTHS ago. Also like you said you don’t know about the behind the scenes so don’t come on here blindly defending Sony. It IS apart of Sony’s job to make these games compatible! Also games being put on PSN, People bother Sony cause Sony should have interest in these things like getting GTA was a big interest, but they don’t show any interest in Kingdom Hearts for PSP which people consistently asked for, I know SE didn’t wanna put on at first but I bet Sony can get it on PSN if they actually try. Me I understand the business and I’ll tell you it’s alot of work, but it’s not the customers work it’s Sony’s work, and them showing no interest in fixing these issues make the future look bad

San Andreas is a hugeeeeee steal at 10 $ , you ppl better get to it tommorow ASAP


118

+ PainOfSarrow on December 10th, 2012 at 9:14 am said:

San Andreas, my favorite GTA game of all time. 1000/1000 from me.


119

+ RewVitalize on December 10th, 2012 at 9:21 am said:

Big Sky Infinity looks a bit like Aegis Wing on XBLA, and that was a pretty fun game, so this one might be decent. Suda51′s new game sounds interesting.

+ beeboi on December 10th, 2012 at 9:35 am said:

hey i been hearing alot about the
tag app is it coming to us and. e3 seem more right about puying a tablet then vita like it but not much coming for it and the lbp cross contoller sony get back on the ball

Anyone knows if GTA San Andreas will be playable on widescreen? That’s the only thing that keeps me from playing the 360 version


124

+ RyosukeFC3S on December 10th, 2012 at 11:47 am said:

Wow! Definitely getting GTA: SA. One thing though, i would very much love it if the GT5 Course Pack is made available again in the US PS Store. Any idea when this will happen?


125

+ SupasamiStar14 on December 10th, 2012 at 11:49 am said:

Okay, first of all, where are all the PS Vita games? I’d like to see games like classic Genesis and Dreamcast games ported over to it (Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic 3, Toe Jam & Earl, Nights into Dreams…, etc.), more PS one Classics like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro, maybe some more PSP games and some more new games as well. COme on, PS3 had the spotlight for 6 years now, give the PS Vita some attention too.


126

+ SoraNeroSerrah on December 10th, 2012 at 12:16 pm said:

@106 I respect your opinion even if i disagree with it. No reason to insult me. If you enjoy those games fine. I just don’t consider them RPGS. That’s what makes gaming great we can all like something different. Just don’t make a Third person shooter and try to feed it to me as an RPG.

aww man, I just recently replayed SA on my roommates PS2. Now I’m going to have to do all of that again!!! ooh woe is me.

I wish I could play PS2 Classics on my Vita! :-[ I’ve got my PS2 discs still, but would definitely pay to take them on-the-go. I distinctly remember this being mentioned at some point as a feature Vita would have… any word on when that would be?

San Andreas wut!

+ passivefamiliar on December 10th, 2012 at 4:20 pm said:

More of a interesting drop this time. Unique stuff i’ll have to look into. But, i’m more curious about FUTURE drops.

Will we get THE LAST OF US as a day one digital? I’d assume so…but if so, can we expect PSN preorder bonuses to combat getting it elsewhere? Just an example game, it’s one i will be buying but the concept goes for every new game coming out. So if Sony wants the sale they need to offer SOMETHING. I ask for nothing amazing, maybe even just the 7 or 8 dollar discount they did awhile back for a preorder digital game. Just, something otherwise he bonuses other places offer make it hard to pass by even though i would prefer a digital copy.

GTA SAN ANDREAS have trophy and how must his gonna be?

+ Elvick_ on December 10th, 2012 at 10:45 pm said:

@116: Licensing issues are the fault of the publishers and rights holders, in KH BBS’ case, Square Enix and Disney. Not Sony.

All issues with BBS and Crisis Core for that matter aren’t Sony’s business. And we all know SE would have shoved them up on PSN if they could have. Accept it, buy a PSP and/or keep your PSP and UMDs. Or give up the games,

we need Yakuza games for the vita…

Yakuza black panther emulated on the vita would be nice

Yakuza 1 and 2 HD ported for the vita would be better

thank you
