Kojima Productions have confirmed that all future major releases for the company will be transfarring enabled and have PS3 and PlayStation Vita versions.
Sweet, gonna definitely get a PSVita anyway, now this means my PS3 versions of kojima games will have extra exclusive features.
That's big news.
And the reasons to own a PSVita just keep coming!!!
Awesome all I need to do is buy same game twice. Hi five
This got anything to do with cross-platform playing and transfarring? I mean, it's going to be like what Kojima said when Sony announced the NGP, right? "We have a plan moving forward, where all of our major titles will have this transfarring functionality. So you'll buy the next big game from Kojima Productions on PS3, and there'll also be an NGP version [PSVita] and take it on the go." "This essentially means that the PlayStation 3 versions of every one of Kojima Productions' future games will already have the exclusive "Transfarring" feature."
@I_find_it_funny LOL, well, HOPEFULLY they offer some kind of bundle or something.
This is cool... and I hope that all Vita games incorporate the feature. But seriously, there's only going to be 1-2 new games from them this gen anyway, lol. But I'm sure the feature will carry over to the PS4.
that's so freakin awesome. i hope they offer some kind of discounted ps3/vita game combo though, i'd hate to pay upwards of $100 for a game, even with an amazing feature like this.
Would be cool to see like $80 bundles of both games.
This should not be the case for downloadable games. The issue will be the resolution. I think that they can get around it. PSP titles are one buy and can be played on both the PSP and PS3 so.... heres to hoping.
yea with all future kojima titles featuring "transfarring" it be stupid for them not to have a bundle package. maybe they can work something out with sony and playstation plus to even make the vita version free or heavily discounted. but yea like i said would be a total F up for kojima and co to not bundle them together somehow.
Yea, I'm hoping for $80 bundles too...
It would be more awesome if the PS3 game include the PS Vita version too for the price on one PS3 game.
This is what I want to see.
OMG Big news.
That is really really shitty bullshit news Hes basically saying that vita will not have a single exclusive from KOJIMA. They will all be ps3 ports or multiplats. greed, greed, greed And this isnt insulting the vita, I am really pissed that these companies are pulling this bullshit edit: Its bad because if I am a consumer who owns a ps3, this news gives me no incentive to buy a vita, because its not going to have exclusives from kojima and anything I can get on the vita will be available on a system I already have. Thats the mass market thinking.
Which is a bad thing, why?
To me it sounds like we're getting some great exclusive PS vita games AND ps3 ports. One does not exclude the other.
i havent seen a third party one yet announced besides a vague bioshock teaser Its worrying to me. Escpecially with this now. Kojima basically came out and said there wont be I am not insulting the vita. In fact quite the opposite. I am saying it deserves better than what these companies visions are ( they see dollar port signs in there eyes) @ redemteur "if you aremoving much or aren't playing "on the go" the portable consoles aren't for you ..but for those of use that use their potable regulary , this is good news ." I am a fan of exclusives. This isnt good "First these remakes aren't slowing the current projects ..the new projects of the fox engines are still actives and rising is still coming " You dont know that, and its guarenteed not to be an exclusive ".. all we have is games that we always wanted ..a freaking ZOE HD , that we can play on the go if we want ..." I am pretty sure we always wanted ZOE 3. ""no more exclusives from kojima "?? Kojima always made games on every console ..there are 4 Metal gear games on nintendo consoles this exclusivity nonsense has to stop ..." false get again. The 4 boktai games are exclusive, zoe gab is exclusive, these are his portable games. They are all exclusive All kojima has basically ever done with portables has been exclusive games. This is not good.
@vampiric i'll be blunt : you're a fan of exclusives .. i have bad news for you ...they are disapearing .. "You dont know that, and its guarenteed not to be an exclusive " YES i know ..an unannonced project is just an idea ..nothing else ...and for the projects we have now there is nothing preventing kojima productions from doing what they want ...if you're not aware kojima is in a strong position at konami to do whatevers he wants .. i mean he is making ( YET AGAIN ) his own engine ...that alone means a lot .. he has the ressources to put INTO dev time, a luxury many game designers haven't .. "I am pretty sure we always wanted ZOE 3." and if you think a little , you know what is the next step after these remakes ..., don't think too much but think about it . i mean no fan of ZOE would enjoy ZERO SHIFTING in HD /s "false get again" i'm talking about Metal gear you're answering by boktai ? do you know how to read ? ok. metal gear solid , was remade on gamecube and got a PC port , Metal gear solid 2 was ported on Xbox , PC . Policenauts didn't have a release on 3 platforms either /s Anyway .. kojima moving from console to console is perfectly normal ... he made a game for almost everything
Although I understand where you are coming from I do believe that this is good news simply because of the whole cross-gaming between PS3 n Vita. The fact that I can continue a console experience on the go is very intriguing to me, that is if this all comes together they way its being promised.
if you aremoving much or aren't playing "on the go" the portable consoles aren't for you ..but for those of use that use their potable regulary , this is good news . First these remakes aren't slowing the current projects ..the new projects of the fox engines are still actives and rising is still coming .. all we have is games that we always wanted ..a freaking ZOE HD , that we can play on the go if we want ... Tranfaring is free ( aside from the games maybe ) and doesn't cut any features ..so ..what's the problem ? "no more exclusives from kojima "?? Kojima always made games on every console ..there are 4 Metal gear games on nintendo consoles this exclusivity nonsense has to stop ...
Dude, kojima is not making anymore PS exclusives anyway...this just means that PS Vita gets included with the PS3 and 360 versions.
wow trolling here too? this guy is on the gamefaqs vita board constantly bashing vita while praising everything nintendo lol. so VampiricDragon, you know for sure kojima and co wont make an exclusive vita game? nope didnt think so. sound like you would only buy a vita if it had a kojima exclusives. which in itself is a stupid reason to buy one lol. try trolling harder you colors show to bright even across different forums lol
aww vamp why you so mad lol? send me stupid troll hate messages then block me? yea like i said you're a troll stop trying to deny it you rhetoric is the same across multiple forums.
Well Vampiric if you think about it 3rd/2nd party exclusives aren't particularly common on the current generation of home consoles. In the past the PSP has gotten exclusives simply because it didn't match the home console generations hardware. Which is why like half decent PSP games are ports/remasters of PS2/PS1/SNES games. It's Sony that should be bringing the bulk of unique content to the vita... I'm happy either way with what third party devs bring. Only thing that's a shame imo is that Sony haven't really announced any new interesting IPs to launch with the platform. Aside 'Project Gravity' which looks okay I guess.
Nothing wrong with multiplats as long as one version isn't gimp to accommodate another version.
@vampiric Some of us like the idea of being able to continue the game we're currently wrapped up in on the go when travel becomes necessary. I can also see how useful a feature this would be when commuting on public transportation to work or school. I however, don't want this feature to come at the cost of denying the PSV it's own unique library. We can and should be able to have it both ways
Wow this is huge!
ppl disagreed cus there sony fan boys beware and yup ports lol cant wait!!! so do i throw the ps3 in the trash or do i not buy a vita? which should i do one or the other im not ending up with the 2 of every game
I'll still stick to my ps3 and alienware for big budget games...
You're missing the point. But that's okay. I won't even bother to try and explain it to you. I'm sure you enjoy lugging your PS3 and Alienware everywhere you go.
Actually you explained it ;) This is great news and I think it's ok to assume that both HD collections are coming for vita
I play casual games on handheld systems when i'm in a bus or something like that. But when it comes to "serious" game like MGS, i have to sit down in front of my TV to fully enjoy it.
The haters can say otherwise. But this is huge news. Rising for PS Vita confirmed
Agreed, this is awesome news. And hopefully a new zone of the enders!
It seems Kojima still has a soft spot for the PS brand.
viva la JAPAN!!!! lol.
This is cool but sort of doesn't make sense. Kojima isn't a game factory that just pumps them out, which is good. His games are polished. PSVita could run it's course before Kojima releases another game. The news would just make more sense for a cookie cutter game that releases yearly.
i Dont think you get the purpose of the new engine . While kojima always polish his stuff , half the time lost was always on constantly creating new engines for each game , be it mgs or zoe . With now a engine tailored to his projects for the foreseeable future ... expect halved dev times , even if kojima will still keep delaying games
I actually do get the point of the new engine, and I was even able to get past all your bad grammar and get the point of your comment too. So great job all around. The 1 or 2 games that make it out from Kojima while the PSVita is still relevant should be pretty cool.
Hmmmm, not so sure about this. I am not gonna buy the same game twice for both the ps3 and the vita, so i would have to pick between them. Naturally i would go for the ps3 version, so i can play it on the big screen. I want a vita, but ports of ps3 games, kind of counts as no game to me, because i would rather get it for the ps3. If 90% of all vita games end up being ports of ps3 games, then the vita game library will be pretty small for me. What i would rather see is, that they make side story's for games, and release those for the vita. Then i could play risen on the ps3, and a game set in the same world as risen, but with a different character and plot, on the vita.
yup that sounds much better but if there all ports im going to skip it as well if its over run by fps games
I'll be picking up Rising on Vita then I think.
That would actually work really well ,.. When Raiden slows the time to cut ,.. could cut with your finger on the screen and he would slice someone in the exactly the way you did it on the front screen.. That would be awesome,..
That's an awesome idea.
I just hope they concentrate on making games that suit the PSV and not ports all the time, they did this with PSP as well released PS2 games which never ported well to it.
wait the reason to buy a vita is cus of ports...
no,.. that is not the reason,.. The main reason would be portability, different and unique games, original games(even of franchises we already know-bioshock), and if there is a 'port'- different and unique experiences,..for instance If I could cut in Metal gear Rising with my finger slice across the screen,..and he would cut the guy exactly as I did with my finger(when Raiden slows time so you can adjust the slow ass sticks) That would be kinda better or at least a different experience on the go,.. don't you think? Or in a core rpg/jrpg,.. instead of having to select,.. and scroll the menus in RPGs or select stuff,.. I could, just select it with finger,.. drag and drop shit efficiently,.. Have some special attacks with front and back touch or both at once,.. Lots of fun stuff you can do with this shit,.. On top of all core games,..this is going to have so much unique software,..(small, cheep, genius titles) it is mind-blowing
I just realized,.. we can have fucking shortcuts on the damn screen,.. LOL we could have World of Warcraft on the fucking Vita,..probably Day 1,..
