I'm hoping it doesn't become too much of a trend to have identical releases on the PS Vita and the PS3. I can see where some people would want titles on both platforms, but what we really need is software that takes advantage of the PSV's unique hardware and capabilities, not just ports.
I see your point but just because it's a "port" doesn't mean it wouldn't use the advantage of it's hardware. Point being for transfaring is that there are people who are willing to continue their game without doing it at home. Surely they should give bonus intensives for transfaring like unique missions and bonus items only attainable from the Vita then transfaring them back to the PS3. -End statement
Well, ports are no good for the game library. We dont want the Vita to end up being another handheld with no games. Psp had way too little games.
Games that were built from ground up were definitely better on the PSP and had better graphics(GOW: Ghost of Sparta). I don't know how successful the transfarring thing will be though, cause I'd rather play Story-driven games at home than on the go.
Personally as long as I only have to buy one copy of the game transfarring I'm cool.
Looking at the Patapons, the Monster Hunters, the Syphon Filter, the Resistance Retribution, etc. It's pretty much safe to say that the PSP has a decent if not a vast array of games in it's library. It's just that the lack of dual-sticks and a media that's considered dead is what caused the popularity to go down. Oh, did I mention that the PSP was also a platform that was difficult to develop for. No doubt the introduction of dual touch-screen panels will try to give developers to work something out in their games, most likely leading away from "ports" and having their own original exclusive title. -End statement
I like the idea of being able to transfer your PS3 save to the PSV to continue playing your PS3 game on the go and then transferring the save back to the PS3 for further play there. However I don't want this to come at the cost of having to purchase the same game for both platforms, or at the cost of it denying the PSV its own unique library.
I really dont think they are gonna offer Vita games for free with a ps3 version.
In Konami's pre-E3 video, Kojima said the entire game would transfer from PS3 to Vita, not just the save file. So you wouldn't have to buy the game twice.
They might include a packaged bundle of the PS3 game and the Vita game for maybe $80. It definitely won't come for free though.
I want what Kojima said, a Game that can play on PS3 and if for some reason I need to go out of my house, I can continue the same game on my PSVita, this is not the same as porting the same game to 2 different systems...
@Foxgod what a dumbass
Playstation Vita? I prefer to call it Skynet To Go
of course it will If they are saying all vita games will run on ps3 and visa versa then theres no mystery here
Uncharted is getting its own vita game tho, i hope more franchises will get their own games.
I would much rather have original games aka ghost of sparta, peace walker then ports....
This is sadly why I prefer 3DS over Vita. I don't think PS3 and Vita can both have momentum. It will be one or the other. The $299 Vita is already falling off pre-orders. Why buy that when you can get a real PS3 that runs games way better?
@eagle21 - Duh....'why get a handheld if i want portability'. Seriously dude, have you got brains. If ya want a PS3 console you buy a PS3 console, hardly portable. They are totally different markets.
Yeah, why would you buy a Vita and play ports of brand new current gen MGS games ,when you could buy a 3DS and play a standard-def port of the PS2's MGS3? /s Your arguing that the Vita's library will contain too many console ports (Uncharted Golden Abyss & Gravity Daze are two launch titles that beg to differ), but then again isn't the only worthwhile game released on the 3DS so far (several months after release!), a dumbed down, sub-HD port of SSF4???
Always the same fanboy BS every where I go. The games for the VITA are not ports. They are brand new games in the series. They are not PORTS like SF4, MGS3 and Zelda OOT on the 3DS. The point of the VITA is to ALSO play on you PS3 as well as take the game on the go. Anyone who does not have a PS3 can still enjoy the portability of the VITA.The argument that you can play games like it on your PS3 is a stupid argument. I can also play better games on my PS3 then on an IPHONE or a 3DS but that doesn't stop anyone from buying those. I could go out and buy a PS2 for less then a 3DS and play MGS3 on a television rather then spend $250 on a 3DS. So please buy a VITA or not but spare us the dumb excuses and reasons please
many seem to still think the PSVita is going to somehow some way be a port machine. while i under stand their opinion on the PSVita an maybe their past experiences with the PSP. The PSVita is not the same, as a matter of fact the one thing going for the PSVita will not be simple ports for the main reason of the "Playstation Suite" there will already be games ready on that platform for release by the time the PSVita is set to release. those can be anything from a quick pick up an play game, to better more dynamic story driven games content. PSVita will have: PSP GAMES PSP MINI'S PSVita games Playstation Suite Games An Augmented Reality games to boot. an some PS3 games "that's like icing on the cake" in my opinion. I really do not see how anyone could be worried about the Idea the PSVita is going to be "just another port machine" I could understand with past experiences, an worried about the Pricing, but the Pricing was already disclosed now, one worry down if you ask me..which for some was the real main worry. Pricing is now out of the Way, but Content worry i think with the number of game options open to the PSVita, I really think that is the least of the ponts to be worried about. I think getting one at launch will be the most thing to worry about now...lol
Its definitely not impossible, I mean Kojima did say he wanted this new game engine to be flexible.
