Not the best thing Sony could get ported to the Vita. So i really hope the Jak&Daxter collection rumor is true.

I already have the PS3 edition, but I hope people get to know why the game is epic! :D

Epic mickey is in my opinion one of the worst game creations this generation and any platform that has it is less because of it. not trying to be a dick but it is just horrible.I feel deep sorrow for any kid that got this horrible abomination of a game.

Well, not the best game to co-develop but they probably got the license to do so cheaply. There is talk that Versus13 FF is also now co-developed by Sony.

In any case, I think this is a good move by Sony if they continue to seek this strategy. But they should look at slightly more high profile games than EM2 which was not too hot. But who knows... maybe they will fix some stuff for the PSV version.

"One last note: as of now, Epic Mickey 2 won’t offer any sort of cross-compatibility support. There are no cross-buy, cross-play, or cross-save features planned."

Sony really needs to start offering those features with every game, more so with ports

I agree to some extent. In this case though I think Sony is sinking in too much money to be giving the game away. Actually I'm rather surprised they're footing the bill to bring this to Vita so it must mean they see this game being great software for the Vitas features.

Anyway, w/o knowing exactly what all would go into making it Cross Save I don't like the fact it won't at least offer that. As for Cross Buy, I'd love to see more, all Sony titles offer this. More often than not I'm not going to spend $100 to get the game on 2 Platforms. Actually it's a good selling point when I'm on the fence too. Knowing i Can play it either on Vita or PS3 I'm probably going to buy a game I was on the fence about...

Seriously, I buy up cross-buy games like candy.

KrisButtar1855d ago (Edited 1855d ago )

I believe cross save should be offered at the very least, for titles that are on both the ps3 and vita. That is a major selling point, if you have the game on the PS3, you can continue on the go with the vita version. I'm sure that reason alone have sold copies for the other games that offer it. For me I will always buy the PS3 version 1st, because I can play it on my 60" OLED, if they want me to spend money on a vita version, I must be able to continue my journey while on the go. Why else would someone want a vita version of a PS3 game? I really see games offered on both and not offering the cross save, will fail on the vita. I can understand why cross buy is not offered for all games, cross save can not be that difficult, compared to the programing of a game itself.

Edit: the fact Sony is involved with this game and doesn't have any "cross" features at all, is mind blowing

So that 100 figure for upcoming games is really just ps3 ports?

Silly gameAr1855d ago

Ports are bad? I see people asking for PS3 ports of games for Vita everyday. Just read the comments on the PSBlog. And one game being ported to Vita doesn't mean all of the upcoming games will be ports anyway. Get real.

Protagonist1855d ago (Edited 1855d ago )

You deducted that from one game being ported to the PS Vita?

Even if it had any truth to it, it would be the most EPIC thing ever done!

Imagine direct ports of:

Grand Theft Auto IV
Batman: Arkham City
Red Dead Redemption
Portal 2
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
God of War III
The ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection
Mass Effect 2
Borderlands 2
Persona 4 Arena
Battlefield 3
Crysis 2
DmC: Devil May Cry

Games that are better on consoles and pc. That's all you've managed to list. Why would that interest buyers who already own machines capable of running those games better?

Silly gameAr1855d ago

What are handhelds used for Jamal? To play games on the go. Those games that he listed may be better on consoles and PC's but I don't know many people that can play those games while on the road, unless they have a PS3 or 360 hooked up to a tv in their car. How convenient would that be?

boybato1855d ago

no vita owner/potential vita buyer wants it to become a port machine though ill gladly port beg for some of those titles.

puamdefokejpn1855d ago (Edited 1855d ago )

Glad Sony is helping on both,.. WiiU version sometimes drops frames a bit,.. looks fantastic though. I don't know what to think of it,.. but at least they foxed a camera.(Two stick)

puamdefokejpn1855d ago (Edited 1855d ago )

but,.. from what I've played,..It is meh ok and it is kiddy as fuck,..Fps drops like wow sometimes. Maybe if you have a kid,.. but there are better platformers out there,.. Jak, Sly, Ratchet ,.. all shit on this by a mile.

Get Jak and Daxter HD collection instead ,.. far far better games. Or get Sly ,.. that game is just (I think Sanzaru actually made a better Sly game than Sucker Punch,.. lol ,.. just saying :))

"The Vita version of the game, starring Disney’s Mickey on a quest to bring color back to the world, will include touch-screen controls for painting and tilt controls for racing. The Vita also gets an exclusive two-player Wi-Fi cooperative mode."

I think this game will fit the Vita better. Plus the co-op seems like a really nice added feature to add some more fun to the game. It may not be something I am interested in but I know it cost Sony next to nothing to port this, so why would I really complain when they are actually improving upon the game.

I love co-op games of any kind so with that in mind, if this is ever on sale or if it is cheap in general I might look into it.
