The system can also upscale and smooth PSP games' graphics.
Perfect. Now i will buy PSP shooters as soon as I get a Vita. (LMAO get a vita aka life)
I like the name Vita. Has more character than 'PSP2'.
I like it too though I think it's an odd way to go, they've always had pretty standard naming strategies. I'll wait until sony announces it to take it for granted. I'm guessing that to only psp games it'll be playing are the digital versions. So a little bit of love to anyone that ownes a go. It didn't sell so well but it'll probably be the version they keep around the longest. It's my fav version, I've had a 200 and a 300 but they were just too big to actually be portable. I take mine to work to listen to music and keep it in my pocket at all times for time killing purposes.
Valkyria Chronicles 3 FF type 0 Patapon 3 These games I will buy when NGP comes out...apart from Uncharted, Wipeout, super stardust, and sound shapes.
This will come in handy on Monster Hunter games. No more using "the claw"
will these psp games be playable with dual analog on the pspgo? Seeing as you can use a sixaxis controller when playing. At least...I do anyways when I plug it into my tv. If these games can get a patch for the ngp there is no reason that patch wont work for the go.
They needed to do this im glad they did.
That's great...except all of my PSP games are on UMD. Whatever happened to that supposed program where you would get a free digital copy of any game you owned that was supposed to roll out with the PSP Go? Yeah, never happened.
when they announced the vita back in february, they were talking about getting those UMD to Digital for real this time, ontop of helping the consumer convert their games from UMD to digital as well. lets see if that happens. If not, we are going to hear the same PSP Go mumbojumbo again.
they would have to be pretty strict with the validation system. Otherwisde what would keep someone from borrowing or buying a bunch of used umds, getting the digital copies and then taking the umds back?
I hope Socom gets the treatment as well, loved it on the PSP.
If Sony can market this well and the machine has a reasonable price( it can't be much more expensive than the 3ds), the system might be able to accomplish what its older brother could not, beat the 3ds.
@ Jacks "But.. the system might be able to accomplish what its older brother could not, beat the 3ds." hmm, dont you mean DS? and isnt the PSP outselling 3DS?
Sorry. I suppose I should have typed "Nintendo's counterpart", rather than 3ds. I figured people would understand the point I was trying to make.
This is a great feature, especially with games like Metal Gear Peace Walker (even though we're getting an HD release) and Socom, which use the face buttons to aim.
Then what's the point buying the PS3 version?
The PS3 version allows you to play on your beautiful 1080p screen rather than a tiny pocket-sized one.
either the right stick can simulate the face buttons or dpad for games that use those for the camera, or games can be coded to detect when they're running on ngp/vita and make use of the right stick. or maybe both are possible, so you can play games that haven't been coded with the feature using the second stick. simulating the face buttons with the right stick would work well for games like age of zombies.
Nice it should improve the controls for many PSP titles. When i get the NGP i will probably get Wipeout and download all the FFs from the store.
Here's hoping that Square Enix release Final Fantasy Type-0 on the PlayStation Store then! Please, please, please.
