There is a distressing lack of Passing Time in that list. That’s the best game on PS Mobile.

Also, Super Crate Box. Also, Rymdkapsel.

I see Chaos Rings is still overpriced when its ported to vita after all these year. No way am i paying that much for an ios game port with no trophies.

I just recently got a Sony Xperia Z. Its a great device! PSMobile games are pretty good too. I got a few thanks to the PlayStation Home E3 event. Gotta Luv it! Now, trophies would really bring it up…

Sony HAS to realize that trophy support would be huge for PSM. Surely many of these games are on the android store already. PSN integration and trophy support would set them apart. Earning some psn trophies on your phone? Seriously enhances the ecosystem.

If they aren’t furiously working away on this behind the scenes then they don’t care about PSM at all.

I tried to slog my way through Chaos Rings. I have no idea why it was lauded as the next big RPG for a while. It’s sub-PSone graphics and slow loads were just awful at that price. And since it had no trophies I would recommend any of the PSone era RPGs for the Vita instead. CR is just way too bare bones and dull.

Add trophy support soon or the mobiles will be just a bad memory. I can still enjoy games without them, but the mobiles are not strong enough to stand without something to bring people in.

This isn’t about PS mobile but maybe you can answer this, when will we be getting our money from the Play promotion, I bought 3 of the 4 games in the promotion and still haven’t received my $6.

Also, Chaos Rings is utter rubbish. I regret spending the $8 on it since it looks and runs like crap on Vita. That was my first and probably last buy on Mobile until Sony follows through on trophy support

I loved Chaos Rings despite the poor frame-rate and would definitely get the other Chaos Rings games in the series; however, I do have a question about Playstation Mobile titles in terms of saved data/backing up. I recently bought a new memory card; backed up everything to my computer as per the instructions; then restored everything to my memory card.

But, my saved data for Chaos Rings was not backed up; the game was like it was when you first install it.

Is there something different to backing up and restoring the save data for PSM titles?

i Bought Chaos Rings last month because i heard nothing but good things about all true but the one thing that bugs me is why does it run so horrible on the Vita? Can’t you guys get Square Enix to do a update to fix this problem?
