Killzone: Mercenary is unleashing itself upon North America and the PS Vita tomorrow. Check out the latest screen shots. p.s. The day 1 patch will makes the digital version incompatible with 4GB memory card.
That day 1 patch is a bummer for those with only a 4 GB card. Time for an upgrade for some.
That's the beauty of Retail copies.
Downloading will be a betch, yes. But, many people fail to understand that patches aren't "addons" to the already-existing data. They're "patches". They overwrite the error'd/outdated files. So if you get a, lets say, 2gb game, and a patch comes out which is 3gb, your "new" game won't be 5gb, it'll probably be just over 2gb. Maybe like 2.2, 2.3. or even, still, 2.0, depending on what the patch does. Um... why'd I get (a) disagree(s) for this...? I'm just stating something. It's like saying, "The sky is blue", while relevant to the conversation, then getting down-voted for that...
If you read the article, you'll see that the patch is 1.4GB and I know that the game download size is 3081 MB (3GB) thanks to my review code. The press release sent out stated that you'll need 4.6 GB free in order to play the digital version.
@ftwrthtx I've read that and understand that. I'm talking about post-installation. You need the space for the DOWNLOAD. Post-installation, it'll be smaller, than the size of the patch + the size of the digital game.
The game is worth the price of an extra memory card.
Ouch, sucks that a simple patch is what kills it for the 4 gig mem card holders. So the patch itself is over 4 gigs?
It only kills the digital version. The patch is a little over a gig but the digital game download is over 3 gigs. If you only have a 4GB card, you'll have to buy the physical copy.
Best shooter on Vita, hope to see more like it in the coming years.
I wouldn't mind Guerrilla Cambridge doing a proper Resistance for Vita. They could alternate the 2 franchises.
"Best shooter on any handheld ever" I fixed it for you.
Man, I really need to upgrade to a 32 gig or maybe even the new 64 gig card. I want to buy this game digitally since I want to play it as soon as it releases.
For those who bought the game. I can't play online . either its lag and disconnected or Matchmaking error :(
I've been getting owned online since the weekend. Have you downloaded the patch? Maybe that has something to do with it..
Yes , I did. All my friends have the same problem. I guess it could be from the ISP or something.
If you only have a 4 gig card , then you are doing it wrong. BTW the game is awesome , 9/10 in my opinion.
really good game. been playing it since friday and its fantastic. my only issue with it though is having to sit through the intros at the start of each mission. does anyone know if theres a way to skip them?! seems stupid this day and age that we have to sit through a 3 minute cutscene every mission DX
Top-right corner is a loading icon, rotating. When it disappears you can tap the screen and the cutscene skips.
seriously?!?!?! :O OMG if youre joking around right now ill kill you haha :P
@RedSoakedSponge Not kidding xD I was relieve as hell to discover that too.
This game in conjunction with Vita TV is going to be a major boost for Sony. Simply put, system seller!
it's really freaking awesome game for vita.. i really like this game so much.. i'm finish veteran mode and collect all Intel last night.. what a epic game.. i love it..
