Gamers who will be picking up the new PlayStation Slim tomorrow that comes with a digital copy of Borderlands 2, the 8GB memory card that comes with the bundle is sufficient enough to download the game.
Sony you need to get larger memory cards out at decent prices. I should be able to buy a 64GB for $80 or less.
F that. I've been since this game was announced to make my decision but tomorrow I will be buying Borderlands 2 for PC instead of Vita. Just seems like the better overall experience. How does it run on PC compared to xbox 360 ?
Of course it's the overall better experience, but what people have to understand about the Vita and Vita ports is that they are portable. You sacrifice a better experience (if you have the hardware) for portability if you're buying it for the Vita, for some people, it's a worthwhile tradeoff.
If you have a Nvidia card, it's like a different game with Physx. Check out the video http://www.geforce.com/game... Also 60fps compared to 360s 30 and below.
The Vita memory cards are the only flaw in an otherwise nearly perfect handheld game system.
I just want to point out that this "experience" isn't just about graphics and framerate. It can be enhanced by how you play it, where and when.
why wouldnt the pc be better than a vita version? thats a silly comparison you're not dragging a pc on the bus with you.
* I own a vita & PC, I literally just bought it off STEAM for $20, as I can play with Keyboard & Mouse OR my xbox 360 controller. * Screen is bigger, FPS is higher, resolution is better, Frame Rate won't jump as much, 4 player co-op... I DID really want this game for Vita and was going to buy it until I read more about it and just realized I won't have as much fun as I want with it. I still may get it in the future at some point if I never get into the DLC with this version. I think they did a solid job on the game, I'm not trying to knock the Vita version, but for me personally, it just made more sense to go with the PC version for now. That and I save space on my Vita's Memory card now. Did I get that many Disagrees because I mentioned Xbox 360 ? lol
@MrFit - but you can take a laptop with you.
That's what, just under 5 GB? Now obviously that isn't big for anything other than a hand held, but with proprietary memory that's quite a lot.
Thats like $20 worth of memory! Ugh, just kill me now, i dont want to feel the pain of going digital on vita anymore.
I buy physical and digital.
Ugh. F digital. Seriously disappointed that Soul Sacrifice Delta is digital only. it's over 3GB :( My poor 16GB card....
So glad i bought 64GB Memory Card from Japan.
Got mine from Amazon (sold by Seitendo/From-Japan-Shopping) for $105 (now $107.89) with Prime shipping.
Nothing new, there aren't really too many devices that give you a lot of memory bundled in at first. So I don't know why this surprises anyone, was the same way with the 3DS. Not like it is the first Vita game this big. You always eventually have to buy a bigger card separately with devices like these anyway, phones are even worse if they aren't rooted. I do understand that the Vita's memory is a bit pricier but still that is far from new also. To me if you buy a good memory card, a reliable and fast one, they usually aren't that cheap either, cheaper than the Vita's but I don't trust dirt cheap cards. They almost always end up corrupting data or are just fakes, being hacked to read more space than they can actually write. Plus we all know why these proprietary cards even exist, I doubt Sony cares all that much seeing as the Vita hasn't been fully hacked yet which is quite a feat. As much as I don't like the prices myself, I can't blame them for protecting their investment and I know it isn't cheap for them, having to make their own memory cards for the Vita specifically. I can only blame all the people that abused the PSP, it is people like that, that have to ruin it for all of us. Now we are paying the price for other peoples actions, nothing new there as well.
I got more things to worry about then this , like if amazon is actually gonna ship my BL2 Vita Slim bundle. I got release shipping and it still hasn't shipped and they haven't even given me a delivery date yet. I hate that site. Anyways I probably wont even download the game to my PS Vita if/when I get it.
When did you order? Preordered mine March 28. Updated last week from free Prime 2-day to 1-day shipping ($3.99). Yesterday estimated delivery was updated from the 7th to today, and UPS says "out for delivery."
Soooooo...... where's the reviews... Is this a worrying sign that there is no reviews of Borderlands 2. I know it is for Sony, they have barely hyped this game and bundle up at all. Geez Sony, advertise this!
I'd expect some reviews soon. Our review for The Vita Lounge will be weeks away as we are getting a EU review copy, perhaps many others are in a similar situation.
@Paul_Murphy , cool will look out for your one, I like The Vita Lounge. I'm sure I saw an unboxing of it by a few sites and people already. My main concern is Sony not pushing it. There is that hint of "last second review embargo" because the game isn't very good about it. From what I've seen, it was looking great for a handheld a few weeks ago, so thought they would have hyped it by allowing the reviews to be released at least a week ago..
Im downloading it shorty. Cannot wait to play it.
Title of article. Just say the download size... instead of on psn on Vita.
You know I like the fact that Playstation Plus gives away so many games, especially for Vita, but I think it was their plan all along to fill up your memory cards with free games that way you have to go out and spend even more money on their over-priced memory cards. Win/Win Sony, I love/hate you for that!
I've got all the Vita PS+ freebies saved since Plus was launched. Once I get them all loaded I will try to remember to come back and post how much of my 64GB card they filled up.
I've had 2 PS Vitas, sold them both, but definitely plan to pick up the new slimmer model with borderlands and i've been doing the same thing, any time a vita game goes free through Plus I throw it in my downloads so when I finally do grab another one they're all there waiting for me. Hell last time I bought a vita I had a 16gb and 8gb memory card and filled them both up with the games I already had downloaded from the 1st time I had the vita, even had to delete some games just to make them fit. Next time I know to pick up the 64gb card if I want to (hopefully) be able to store everything on one card. The free games are great, and I understand WHY Sony made exclusive memory cards for the Vita, but the hefty price-tag for them are just about ludicrous, but like I said I think that's why Sony is giving away so many Vita games so you HAVE to go out and buy one or more if you want to be able to put all or most of your games on them without having to constantly delete games to make room, which if you're anything like me I like to have all of my games on one card, having to change cards to play games bugs me for some reason, almost like the days when you had to switch disks or cartridges to continue playing the game.
Hmmm. Beat DLC, uninstall DLC, profit?
