Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable on PS Vita

EDF! EDF! EDF! We are excited to share the news today that Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable will be available as a digital download on PlayStation Vita at the beginning of the year. The game will be available on January 8th, 2013 in North America for $39.99 and players will get to experience all the intense action that the Earth Defense Force can endure.

What is really cool is that Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable is completely remastered from the original classic shooter (Earth Defense Force 2017) and with so many extras, players will truly get a new EDF experience that wasn’t possible before. Players will get to check out seven new levels plus dive into all the action with fan favorite Pale Wing, giving players the power to soar high over buildings in her jet pack and cause massive destruction from above.

You will also find some new enemies in the game, and blast them to smithereens with your choice of more than 230 weapons, including many new ones. For the first time, save the world with your friends in online multiplayer for up to four players in co-op and versus mode.

We look forward to hearing about your experiences with Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable and hope that you can save mankind from this insect infestation starting on January 8th! Good luck!

I really don’t like buying digital copies of games, no matter what system it’s from. So, I can say that I won’t be getting this game.

I love EDF. Really, I do. I think I put more than 50 hours in to 2017 so many years ago. And Insect Armageddon? I convinced 4 friends to buy it with me just to play online. We even wrote our own EDF theme song. I recorded it and everything, one guy had it as his ring tone. I was so stoked for this game… You have no idea. EDF 2017, in my pocket? Everywhere I go? Sold. I was already planning on the digital release anyway so that doesn’t bother me. It’s the 40$ price tag. Now I’m sure someone put some work in to this game. But… I played it back in 2006-2007. This is at least a 5 year old game. As much as I love EDF 40$ for this is too much. And I will unfortunately not be buying this one until someone at D3 stops trying to bleed the loyal EDF fans.

I was looking forward to buying this game, but as a digital only title I will have to pass. Making this a digital only title seems to be a poor move unless Sony plans on lowering all memory card prices to prices that are comparable price-wise to SD cards and offering higher capacity cards.

I guess the PS Vita sales are going SO well that they do not really have to worry about if the games sell or not for their system…../sarcasm off
