I'm kind of excited about the addition of Playstation Plus to the Vita next week.

I haven't played Uncharted yet. It will be nice to be able to download it and play it as part of my Plus account.

Now I just need to head out and get a bigger memory card (I have a 4 GB card my vita came with and an 8 gb card).

You and me both, I will be picking up Uncharted, Wipeout and Jetset. Excellent time to be a Vita owner. I already got a backlog and planning on getting free games.

Note: Sine Mora is out on the 20th

I already have Wipeout & Uncharted, but I'm considering trading them in, and putting the money towards another memory card for future downloads. My 16GB is nearly full already.

Playstation Plus

Trying to purchase PS + for my son, and under the buy yearly (after logged into account) it is re-directing to http://ttwbs.channelintelligence.com (more gibberish as well after the .com)

is this normal, as it just stalls?

seems odd.

Buy it from the PS store within the PS3, thats the way I've done it.

Hey thats a good idea actually. Trade in Wipeout and Uncharted, get a 32GB card and then buy PS+ and re-download them.
I too am stuck with the 16GB from launch because Sony had to take care of other territories first.

Or you can buy a digital code from Amazon if you want.

The Vita System software was updated to 2.0 tonight.

Cloud storage (for plus members) and wifi data transfer are working. And you can set your e-mail up on the Vita now if you really wanted to. The web browser is also improved if you use it.

The Plus Instant Game Collection should be available with the store update on Tuesday.

Downloaded 2.0, can't find any time settings for Plus updates+cloud uploads! Can't even find out how much room my cloud saves are taking up. It all seems very hands-off at the moment.

Near seems improved but it's still confusing as all hell.

Haven't noticed any other differences. The interface needs so many little improvements, I don't like how segmented it is too. Apps like messaging, friends, trophies... they should always be running in the background (as they don't affect game performance) or start up instantly. They'll get there no doubt.

We need a serious GUI overhaul....

I want them to overhaul the interface.

Drop the horrible circular app icons and introduce a standard grid.

Allow me to add a wallpaper and not have to painfully do it per screen, where ven if I select the same wallpaper on all screens it insists on fading in and out the wallpaper on each screen.

Change the multitasking panel, its ugly and cheap looking.

And allow me to adjust the volume up at least 2 x as high because he Vita is way too quiet.

I really want a Vita. But the fact that is has nogaems is bothering me.

Can you download previous PSP titles on the thing?

But to be honest, I might just pick one up because of Persona.

It has the best version of Little Big Planet and Wipeout, a jolly good Uncharted, Metal Gear Solid 2+3 updated ports, Assassins Creed 3 Liberation, Rayman Origin, Disgaea 3 updated port, Super Stardust Delta, Gravity Rush, When Viking's Attack.

And plays almost all PSP games, all PS1, PS Mobile and PS Minis. My 32gb card is almost full .

Oh cool.

Also, how is Metal Gear Solid 3 on the Vita? After playing Metal Gear Solid 3D on the 3DS, I'm kinda weary about playing a Metal Gear title on a portable.

I think you mean games not appealing to you. I've had my vita from launch and to tell you the truth its getting harder to keep up since August. Yes some PSP games can be played on the vita as well as PS1 games.

That line goes down the PS family brand I guess because everything PlayStation gets that label.

"Fill in a Sony console here" haz no gaemz..

Yeah you're right. Tbh, The Vita didn't excite me as much as the PSP.

But I'll be giving the Vita a shot and I'll be ordering one this weekend. (Saw one on Amazon for around 160~)


But I do love using the "sony consoles has nogaems" excuse whenever I can

If your just wanting the big name games to be played on the couch, then I think the wii U offers some serious competition to the vita. I don't use my Vita outside of the home, if I don't get a glut of new titles in the new year (e3 last year was a vita wasteland) and if I enjoy the Wii u, I can foresee my vita being sold off after I've finished Persona 4...

I just bought the iPad mini. Now Persona 4 Golden is out, and I know I can't live without it. I chose the iPad since I figured I "needed" a tablet. Vita I'd only buy for fun (or rather only for P4G)... but which one is more important in the end, fun or useful?

Thanks to Playstation Plus I now know how good Gravity Rush is! Didn't enjoy it at E3, but with the context of story and being able to hear the incredible soundtrack, I've been pulled in .

Not so impressed with Uncharted though. Seems a lot more like the original (which I wasn't keen on) rather than its sequels.

It's spot on. Plays flawlessly.

That being said...I've put my Vita on eBay. Sadly, it just wasn't for me.

I would've kept it for the sake of it, but having over £400 worth of hardware and software collecting dust less then a year after purchase is a little depressing.

Persona 4 = same game as PS2 version with few new additions and rough areas are looking a bit prettier.

I wish they made the game a little 'easier' to get into on Vita. The game takes a good 3 hours before it really starts kicking into place (given you'll be playing this 60-100 hours)...

Well I got the Black Ops Vita bundle along with Persona 4.

Black Ops was pretty trashy on the Vita. I really wouldn't recommend it to anyone.


P4G is purtty nice though.

Honestly, that's par for the course for Atlus games. They care more about storytelling than gameplay. I kinda wish they'd hurry up with a new Persona, while I loved Catherine, I'm like a die hard Persona fangirl.

I picked up Ragnarok Odyssey, it feels strongly like a spiritual successor to Monster Hunter, which makes me kinda happy since there are no plans to import in any of the newer Monster Hunters.
