Uh, has anyone else's PSV touchscreen gone wonky while playing a game and had to reset the whole handheld because of it? I was doing one of the rubbing sections of Uncharted and mine went crazy, even when I exited the game).

I juuust posted that. Though, I only beat your ghost by a hair with a Level 7 car and your Ghost was Level 4. I figured you'd overtake me soon enough.

The only problem i've had is the Vita completely freezing on me. Once while using Netflix, the other while Netflix was running in the background.

20 bucks off Persona 3 Portable is an awesome deal. Even if you have complaints about the PSP version's presentation.

If it happens again, I'd call Sony. I got my Vita replaced because of right stick problems, better to get in early if there is a problem.

I was finally able to load Little Big Planet and Pursuit Force on my Vita after the update from today. Those didn't work a few weeks ago (I think).

I wish the other of the two burnout games worked on the Vita. I'd download that shizzle for my long journey to NZ.

They worked before. This was the first thing I thought of when the update hit. Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier still not transferable :(. It doesn't matter, still playing the hell of out Stardust and Hustle Kings with famousmortimer.

Dunno. I already had it. I think it's cheap.



The only bummer is that they adapted the control scheme to the psp fairly decently, so there's no generic control scheme where the dpad controls the camera (which you could then map to the 2nd stick, of course). So there's no way to make it control like a normal game. You just have to get used to spinning the camera around with the should buttons :/

Most of the indications I've seen around the interwebs seem to suggest that the Vita is a surprisingly rugged machine as far as drops and spills go. At least much more durable than I would think, what with the giant screen and such.

Mortal Kombat on the vita is amazing. So fun, so much content, so effing good.


Unit 13 is still awesome and I still play it daily.


Disgaea 3 is amazing and I have a feeling I'll still be working on it on 5/3/13.


New track in Ridge Racer is great. I had to delete ridge racer though which lost my save... so im starting over now ><

Backup.

I find the portable platform much easier to waste time trying to platinum a game. Have two so far.

Tempted to import MK, since it's refused classification in my shit hole country.

Yes, back-up. I have my Vita charging at my work computer all day, so I just back-up to it there once a week.

Disgaea looks good, but I just started Tactics Ogre and don't want two SRPG's going at once.

Is there any way to turn off the stupid attempt from Unit 13 to connect to wifi (and if I have wifi turned off it askes if I want to turn it on to use the features) while I am in the middle of a fire fight, stopping all input and not pausing the game causing me to die?

It only happened because I was at work, and every time I put the vita in standby mode and turned it back on again, after 10 seconds it would try to connect to wifi. The fix is to wait 10 seconds before playing.

Disgaea 3 is just sucking up all my Vita time at the moment (which is why I've missed the last few HSG tournies, sorry). I never could play D3 on the PS3 properly as it just didn't fit in with my life but the handheld is the perfect machine for it. Fingers crossed Disgaea 4 makes it way across next year but the sales of D3 look quite poor so maybe not.

I also managed to pick up Mortal Kombat for 23 quid (sub $40) and agree with Mort, so much content that I'll probably never have time to play/master. Fun game in small doses though and looks/runs brilliantly in the fights (outside the fights it looks like a PS2 game though). Unfortunately I'm struggling to get over the fact that Johnny Cage looks like Will Ferrell as the engine cuts into the CG at the beginning/end of fights.

Also read today that Pixel Junk Monsters deluxe is going to be made compatible in a week or so (possibly via a firmware patch which might also make other PSP games work). Can't wait, PJM is awesome.

Unit 13 probably would've benefitted from being a cross-play game just so there'd be a larger pool of players - or, make it free to play on both. If you're not Call of Duty or a franchise - it's extremely hard to get that audience to pay attention. Right?

Definitely looking forward to PJM being compatible, 'cuz I would play the hell out of that on the vita again.

Unit 13 only has 2 player co-op so the player pool only needs to be 1 person big. Finding someone to play with isn't an issue. That's not to say I wouldn't have loved a PS3 version also - i would have... it's a really fun game. But having a bigger player pool isn't an issue for it. Not to mention that it was the #2 selling vita game last month (whatever that means... 5 sold? 50k sold? 500k sold? probably the middle one).


Player pool is a weird thing. I read a thread at neogaf where someone said they paid for and played COD on the 360 only because it has a bigger player pool. This was fucking insane to me. I mean according to activision's numbers there's about 1.5 million at peak on the 360 and 1.2 on the ps3. Is 1.2 million not enough? Last I checked the biggest game is 24 players, so the other 1,199,976 players aren't in your game.


I still play MAG from time to time... the player pool for that is about 4000 at peak and 1000 at its lowest. 1000 isn't a lot. But once i get in a game does it matter that only 1000 are on?


I dunno, i don't get it. I don't mean this directed at you CJ. It just made me think of people, especially at neogaf, that are obsessed with that number... when it really doesn't matter at all.



And yes, the fuck will be played out PJM. I would assume this means all the minis that work in the EU (pretty much anything released in the last few months, plus some old stuff) will work also. I would be excited for Cannabalt with buttons - but nasero says there's no leaderboard. How dumb :/

So far I have tried co-op on Unit 13 three times. The first time I was paired with a retard kid who had chosen the hardest covert mission and then proceeded to run in guns blazing hence failing the mission. The next game was a better, though longer mission, with a player who wasn't retarded, we got right near the end before the game decided to kick us out!
The third attempt I was matched with a run and gunner I had to revive multiple times, before he left the game. At least the game let me finish alone to get the co-op trophy.

I have no friends so split screen is useless, but i would love unit 13 on the ps3. I'm still bummed that Sony canned Zipper. I don't get the logic... they need Vita games, Zipper makes an awesome Vita game... they shut down zipper. On what planet does this make sense?


I understand that MAG and Socom 4 weren't big hits... pair down the studio a bit and make it vita focused. Don't get rid of the whole fucking thing!

I am the opposite and have no friends to play online co-op with! So I need split-screen for those drunken gaming nights. Vita split-screen!?

Unit 13 is pretty great though.
