I love my PS4, but I feel that Vita is being ignored by the Western developers. Take away PS4 remote, Japanese and Indie games and you have not much out there for PS Vita. We need open world games like GTA, Infamous, Syphon Filter, etc. Also, still no NBA, NHL, WWE and only one Madden game. At this point, I would love to see San Andreas HD with trophies. Bring some more love to the Vita and get Capcom, EA, Konami and most importantly 2K (Rockstar) to come back to the Vita.

Sid, can you please do me a great favor?

Tell Sumo Digital to make the motion controller OPTIONAL in LittleBIGPlanet 3.

On every LBP game I always hated the fact that Sackboy’s head move with DualShock/Vita movement. My Sackboy always looks up, and to make him look to the center of the screen, I need to hold the controller in a uncomfortable way.

I asked this many times to Media Molecule, but they never listened. And I’m not the only one who complain about this.

That’s my only ask regarding LittleBIGPlanet 3.

Thank you very much.

I am absolutely excited about the new LBP 3 game. I wish they would have made a sequel to LBP Karting for the PS4.

Is there any way to voice how much we need the PS Vita to get some support. Its an amazing machine and it should be kicking some ass with great AAA games and even Vita only games. Why not fighting games and so on. I wouldn’t mind more collections like Jak & Daxter and similar games. Let’s give the Vita more Life.

    I’d love that. As for PS Now – stay tuned. New games should be coming regularly. If you’re on Twitter, we’ll tweet them out on @PlayStation

Is that new music for the interview lead in? I never noticed it before and I just wanted to say it’s pretty badass! I really want to play Rogue Legacy right now, but I’m kinda scared. I’ve already broke my e-cig and my nightstand out of anger playing it, not to mention I had to bite down on a shirt yesterday because I kept screaming obscenities.

    We’ve been using it for almost a year now, but glad you like it! I need to get my mitts on Rogue Legacy ASAP.

Yeah we need big support for PS VITA

@ Sid: I think you’ll love Rogue Legacy. It brings a sense of progression to the roguelike genre.

I’ve always liked roguelike games, but never stayed with them for long because after playing them I never feel like I’ve gotten anywhere. Rogue Legacy fixes that problem, and still has plenty of hours of gameplay.

What the hell has gotten into you guys over there at Playstation??? I feel like I’m stealing getting Road Not Taken, Fez, Metrico, and Dragon’s Crown ALL free this month. They say that Playstation has been profiting recently. With all these amazing games we get free w/ PS+, there’s NO way those reports could possibly be true. Can’t wait for Tuesday and keep up the great work on the Blogcast!

Why did we never get a PS4 Guacamole upgrade option like Europe did?

We only have the full version no upgrade option.

@ Sid You should definitely get Rogue Legacy, I mainly got mad because I accidently overwrote my lvl 85 crosssave and had to restart, but I’m back to lvl 38 and still addicted. I actually wasn’t going to get it, but I took a chance and preordered it the day before it came out because of the discount, and it’s way better than I was expecting. I wish there were better games in that play promotion though. I know Binding of Isaac Rebirth and Velocity 2X are coming soon, and I would have loved to seen those 2 in this promotion instead of any of the others. Hohokum and Counterspy do look interesting though, but they don’t excite me enough to take a chance, especially when we’ll probably get them free in the IGC in a month or two anyway. Rogue Legacy is worth every penny though.

Will our DLC and story collectibles transfer from LBP2 to PS4 version of LBP3?

I need an answer please.

SupertoastGT said:

August 4th, 3:33 am

I’m with BlaqMagiq24 on wondering if our PS3 LBP2 profile can be used on LBP3 on the PS4 version. It would be a huge loss to find out we can’t keep our unlocked stuff, especially since with LBP2 level compatability, all that will be in the game anyway. Can someone please confirm that for us? Anyone in the community who has a PS4 is dying to know. We truely do need an answer.

Thanks. :D

Unrelated, but…. what happened to the ps blog mobile site? Maybe it’s just me but all I get on my phone now is the desktop version. :/

Many players do not know about MediEvil and certainly would have liked them. I would ask for the continuation of a series of games MediEvil on playstation 4 or restoration of the series in hd collections.

Obligatorily, #Suikoden2onPSStore.

I know that Konami is (finally) willing so it’s time for SCEA to make that EBOOT!

Not gonna support another handheld gaming sony device. Thanks SONY AMERICA/EUROPE for abandoning the PS VITA!

Tinye310 said:

August 4th, 5:14 pm

I disagree about the #1 post. I mean the remote play is a feature of the ps4 and should be included as a whole with all it’s other games. and EVEN if you remove that feature the Vita has a TON of games. I don’t think these big AAA games need to be on the Vita but the occasional one does come along. Overall the Vita has something for everyone I just don’t see it lacking at all.

Hey Sid, do you know why Singstar hasn’t had any new songs added in nearly 3 months? It used to get new content monthly.

As far as TLOU remastered photo mode goes, I think I snapped a glorious picture that people can appreciate:

When can we expect dragons crown and fez for ps3 ? I’m so excited !

Globalisateur said:

LBP3 interests me. But the 30fps on PS4 is really a missed opportunity to improve the laggy controls (with a 60fps game) recurrent of the serie.

Please for LBP4 on PS4 you really have to target for 60fps!! Seriously 1080p60fps is the future on PS4!

wally-217 said:

August 5th, 6:34 pm

@#2 Press L3?

@#28 30 fps is necessary for backwards compatibility as 60fps would mess up some people’s (very complex) logic. As long as LBP stays backwards compatible, your only ever going to get 30 fps and it would never drop support for LB1+2 levels.

Man, grounded is the way to go for your first playthrough, provided you`ve beaten the game on ps3 on survivor. Now that`s a difficutly level. Enemies are unforgiving, it`s very hard to even melee some of them, like runners, which on other difficulties are much easier. I`ve died plenty of times but I`m still hanging, currently in Tommy`s dam chapter.

hazelcabug said:

Since Sony America are abandoning AAA titles on vita, how about making the possibility of having multi-account on vita just like ps3. So that we can freely buy and play r3 games on our r1 account.

hazelcabug said:

August 8th, 10:14 am

Or at least make r3 game’s DLC become region-free? that way r1 vita community will be more delighted to import r3 games.
