Lair
Lego Batman
Pixel junk Shooter

Work also. But are very laggy tbh and barely playable.

Not too much. Some price benefits for PSP titles. Free mini's from PS+ though when you start them you get an error message. Sony are meant to be working on it.

I imagine we will see some cross over and more exclusive PS+ content once there is a more abundant supply of content for the vita.

It's ok, i'm not a big multiplayer player anyway tbh. That requires spending more time on a game than usually i have patience or the time for

Tell me about it, I used to be able to play COD very casually and still do really well online. Now if I go on I get smashed.

Anyone considering buying some Japanese games such as Ragnarok Odyssey (http://uk.vita.ign.com/objects/117/117348.html)?

The Japanese release line-up seems a lot more solid then the Western one which is empty at the moment. My only worry is the language barrier...

I want those, and also new games. I don't think I've bought a new game for my Vita since the launch week.
Disgaea is out at the end of the month. (starting to remember why I usually wait a year before picking up a console)

Disgaea looks nice, but I'm not a big fan of strategy games like that. Long time to wait for nice PS Vita games (just like waiting before for 3DS games). Still playing through WipEout 2048 and Uncharted. I'm about to finish Escape Plan too.

Craving some new vita games.

I know it had a good launch, but the tide has certainly subsided and there is very few new vita games on the radar in the next few months. Hopefully e3 brings a sunami of titles.

I hope so too!
Disgaea turned up a couple of days ago. It's great and I'll sink so many hours into it... but it's still a port of a PS3 game. Got Mortal Kombat on preorder too.

Going to E3 this year and I'd love to play some new and original Vita games.


And I've been wondering about PSN versus Vita cards - what do you go for? I've been opting for cards since they're 5-10 cheaper on online stores, and with Vita storage prices as high as they are I just don't have the room for many downloads.

I think the game I'm most excited for is Gravity Rush. It just looks like such a fun and strange little game.

As to PSN v Vita card, I tend to go with the Vita card, but that's just because I have this weird need to have cases and junk on my shelves. If not, I sometimes forget I have game is I don't see them on the shelf.

Generally cards too, like you say at 50 for a 16GB card and with online retailer discounts the physical product is often cheaper than the PSN title sadly. I'll stick to arcade PSN downloads, full games - cards all the way (unless there is some super PS+ discount).

Yup I need some new games now and I really wish I was into srpg then I would be all over Disgaea. I'll wait for resistance Burning Sky and Gavity Rush.

I'm having fun trying to beat you guys race time on motorstorm RC but it gets pretty hard on the later tracks and thats when I get bored.

I'm hoping Soul Sacrifice is a Demon/Dark Soul type of game....I can imagine myself sinking hours into that.


Bless

Did that just this morning

I have an import model Vita which has been starved of games for a while. That being said, I still love uncharted and my Japanese Vita works just fine on the US store. I bagged a 32GB Vita storage card in prep for possible demos or beta trials without having to fight for storage space.

Between both my 3DS and my Vita, Sony packed that machine for the long haul with it's visual abilities and other neat features. Still, I can't part with my 3DS. I love Nintendo's classics that can't be found anywhere else.

Now I just hope I can make it into the LBP beta. Just seeing that game and Uncharted on a portable had me sold!

Sure we will get it at some point though.

While on the subject of design, does anyone else think that the Vita would feel and look so much better with an aluminium rim rather than the silver plastic one. Just something that bothers me a little, probably from being spoilt by Apple's amazing industrial designs. Apart from that the Vita looks great imo.
