Looks like we may FINALLY be getting the Slim over here
Theres a UK review up on Cnet. Here's what they had to say about the display for this still hating on it
I'll just stick with my OLED.
that was the reason why I tracked down the non slim model I am not a fan of them downgrading to a LCD although the 1 gb of built in memory is nice. I am quite happy with my fat Vita with the OLED
Id rather a standalone console as I already own BL2 via Plus.
This one does however come with all 6 DLC packs.
So we finally have some tangible details about the Vita version of Borderlands 2! Basically it doesn't look as good or run as well as the PS3 version, but overall it's not too bad considering they squeezed everything down to Vita size.
First, here is a 4 minute video of the game running at GDC:
Borderlands 2 on Vita: Rough Around the Edges
The game is cross-save, so you can use your same character. Trophies will also transfer between versions, so you will have two lists but any new trophy you earn will pop once you transfer the save.
It's not going to run as well as the console version, but I won't mind being able to level up and do some quests on the Vita.
For a handheld port, it looks quite good imo.
Looks like Bioshock Vita isnt happening anymore
Biggest shock from the PSX show is that Sony remembered that the Vita exists. It got more attention here than any other game show from the last year combined
Anything worth noting, though?
Probably the most noteworthy is Resident Evil Revelations 2 coming to it. In addition, these were also announced
Day of the Tentacle: Special Edition
Octodad: Dadliest Catch
Super Time Force Ultra
The Banner Saga
No Suikoden 3? Should be able to run that, granted it's not as popular as 1 and 2.
I am seriously considering getting a Vita regardless, but I would love to see some PS2 JRPG's on the system.
Radiata Stories, the Grandia games, etc.
the vita is worth it, if only for playing the ps4 while someone else is using the tv.
According to that Best Buy listing, it looks like Sony is finally about to sell the Slim Vita as a standalone without Borderlands. Unfortunately the price will remain at $200. They should just make the standalone version $170 or at the very least run a free game out of 4 promo like they are doing with the PS4
Does the Vita TV/PS TV run carts or is it all digital?
I'm posting this here because I couldn't find a direct thread for my question:
I just bought a used PS Vita recently and I've been playing Guacamelee on it. I was overseas when I was playing, so even though I already had a file on PS3 and started a fresh file. When I finally got back I wanted to jump back onto my original file, so I uploaded to the cloud, downloaded, and I was good to go. Here's where the problems started.
On the Vita I got as far as being able to turn back and forth into a chicken. I had no issues. After I loaded my PS3 save from the cloud, when I change to a chicken I can't change back.
Now I've done some research and learned that before a DLC costume pack was released people were having this same issue about a year back and an update had fixed it. As far as I can tell my game is up to date and it only happened when I used the save from the cloud on the Vita.
I don't know what to do. Has anyone come across this?
It accepts Vita cards
Several more reasons not to bother with a Vita. Sony is killing support for several apps in the coming months
Hm, if not for the software they are still actively trying to get for the Vita, I would say this is a sign that it's soon to be done. I wonder why they're doing that. If I understand correctly, it's the companies behind the apps who pay for the licensing, not the other way around, right? Unless they are just trying to cut costs via server space? Guess that's possible.
I have no clue but I thought Sony paid the companies license fees to get their apps onboard. I could be wrong but I thought Sony decided to stop paying bc the userbase isnt big enough to justify the costs. To me as someone that doesnt own a Vita, it defintely doesnt look like they are invested
It's worth pointing out that the PS TV can only run patched Vita games. A lot of games are still unplayable. Wikipedia has a list of all compatible games.
Vita games like MGS HD Collection, The Wolf Among Us and Gravity Rush for example will not play on the PS TV.
Hm, I may very well of had it backwards then. I thought it was like games where companies have to pay licensing fees to the platform holder, but if apps are operated differently, then this makes sense.
