PlayStation Vita content. Yay.

Sev1468d ago

Way past due, though. It's been a rough month ad a half since Gravity Rush released. I know the system is just getting started, but there should have been some more PSN releases ready to hold things over.

bostoner1468d ago

The people who disagreed with all you obviously don't have a vita. I'm sure they'll disagree with me too.

PoSTedUP1468d ago

yeah i sold all my vita games (3) except GR bc its DLable and bought liberty city stories that just released and harvest moon for psp. really good fun games.

ps vita content yeah. but it's still bad and not to my liking. isnt vice city stories suppose to release the 24th? that's what i herd...

Sev1468d ago

Vice City Stories is said to become compatible with the Vita starting on the 24th. But it's already unofficially compatible now if you try it.

decimalator1468d ago

You can't get Metal Gear Peace Walker from the store, but if you download it to a PS3 you can load it up through the content manager. At least I was able to a few firmwares ago, I might have just gotten lucky.

The one thing I will say about the Vita drought is it has gotten me to take a 2nd look at some PSP titles I missed or neglected. Cladun and Cladun X2 are great. And of course Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is hours and hours of awesome... but sad because I fear it's the last Monster Hunter we'll see on a PlayStation platform thanks to stupid f'ing Capcom.

Oh_Yeah1467d ago

you can already get malicious though? just sign up for psn europe. bad game btw

PoSTedUP1467d ago

ah i see sev, thanks. ill have to figure out of i can DL it form ps3 bc i was having problems/ i dont wanna buy it and not be able to port it...

and yeah they look good, and monster hunter freedom looks excellent i really want it. i just bought fate/EXTRA which looks to be one of the greatest digital novels similar to psersona3. ill let you know ima bot to play it now

Anything for my Vita is welcomed.

decimalator1468d ago

I got all excited... but then I got sad.

Our children's children will call it the "Great Vita Drought of '12"...

There was a pretty decent launch window, and then it's sort of sucked ever since. Didn't they learn their lesson with the PSP? The PS3? Software sells hardware. To some extent the reverse is true too, but if there is nothing to play on the device, what is the point of the device?

-Mika-1468d ago (Edited 1468d ago )

Honestly im not even surprise by this drought. I already knew this was going to happen. If you did your research. You would have known too. I love my vita and the backlog of psp games is helping me through this drought

@Sev thxs for the answer. I can't wait then.

PoSTedUP1468d ago

@dec yeah i guess most of the good games started developement all at once, seems like they will all hit at once (starting Oct. and beyond) besides Ragnarok oddsey which i cannot wait for.

decimalator1468d ago

@Mika not that I'm surprised, just disappointed. PS3 got a slow start because of the lack of games. The PSP died because the games dried up because of piracy. I was just optimistic that Sony would have tried to line up the pipeline with at least a few morsels every couple weeks.

Granted, there have been some pretty decent games already and we're only about 5 months into its life in North America...

Baka-akaB1467d ago

truth be told they released to much at once . Most of those launch games would have sold better if spread from mars till now , precisely to prevent the current drought .

And it doesnt help that too many psp titles arent playable yet

kikizoo1467d ago

"PS3 got a slow start because of the lack of games."

because of price...only ! (even if the first months never are te best, pas3 lineup was better than competition ones, so..it was not the problem)

"The PSP died because the games dried up because of piracy."

died ? in your head only, [email protected]. (but you are right, not enough games, like nintendo's home consoles approximatly, and way less than ps2, ps3)

Sadly, it's not much, and nowhere near enough to excuse this dreadful patch of nothingness from June to October.

I swear, each time Sony makes a new console... handheld or otherwise, the deliver an impressive machine on every level... but then seem to go way, way out of their way to completely sabotage it. That's the only -possible- explanation for this kind of crap.

NBT911467d ago

I agree, I have learnt to not really buy Sony consoles on release. I got my PS3 on release and thankfully Oblivion released on it shortly after which was enough to hold me over for about a year or two before games started to actually release.

I just sold my Vita for a 3DS... Best decision I have made gaming wise. Enjoying playing Kingdom Hearts, Mario, StarFox and Zelda instead of literally just Uncharted Golden Abyss.

Not that I am against the Vita, it is a great system but the software is not even close yet. I believe it will eventually be a success though, even this fall with All Stars I will possibly end up buying another one =D but for now... No.

Conzul1467d ago

OH HO! See what he did there? XD

TENTONGUN1468d ago

yeah i know. im personaly waiting for a madden vita demo. buyin it anyway, but cant wait to check it out ya know

-Mika-1468d ago

Does anybody know how much malicious is going to cost. Will it be $10?

Sev1468d ago

Yep, $9.99 is what I saw.

JonnyBigBoss1468d ago

Rainbow Moon is already getting DLC? What!?

Wintersun6161467d ago

It already has in the EU store, but it's only the kind of DLC you can buy Rainbow Pearls etc with. Not actual content.

Sev1468d ago

Careful of all of the PlayStation Store Preview knock-offs lately. There have been three new ones in the past 10 days alone. Stick with the tried and true original.

Trenta271468d ago

Oh yay. Two new games?! They must want to spoil us!
