Yep, it's a great game. Had a lot of fun getting it to 100%.

Funnily enough I just had a similar issue on my Vita. I forced it to use the web browser while Mortal Kombat was running and the system stopped recognizing inputs from the touch screen.

I've seen a few posts here with similar issues.

If you can fix it by turning the system off holding the power button for about 20 seconds then it's not a hardware issue. If the problem persists I'd suggest contacting Sony.

Yeah I've recently started played it again after having it for a while. Really enjoying the later missions.

Would it really be marked "Only on Playstation"? BlazBlue didn't have that, but then that did have a 3DS version if that's the metric they're using. Though there's also UMvC3 that I recall didn't have it.

... Sony's use of "only on Playstation" gets to me more than anyone else's. Partially because it seemed to be recognized by Nintendo/Microsoft as a marketting ploy that was having less use with time, while they had been the company abstaining longest.

If they're real, they're surely not definitive. It's even written on AC 3.

If anything, I reckon the name of the assassins creed vita game is missing a subtitle. Could be a prequel/follow up to the main story.

Ghost recon is interesting though... A 4 person co-op game on Vita? It would be nice to see more of those on portables.

Please note it says 'final artwork coming soon' in the bottom of the cover. As I remember the Vita game has another name, it wasn't Assasin's Creed III.

Considering they ported it to a number of devices and that released several sequels, I'd sayd that it did it at least decently when compared to its budget. Maybe not something spectacular, but they should have made some profit.

Iphone version was releally bad due to touchscreen only controls. Gameloft released a Lumines for (old, crappy) Java phones with some exclusive features, PS3 version was good, but I prefer to play Lumines on portables. As I remember they didn't have licensed music. Instead Lumines 2 (PSP), Lumines Live (XBLA) and Lumines Electronic Symphony (Vita) had licensed music.

It would be cool to have something like PS Plus auto-download: before going to bed you switch on WiFi, put Vita in sleep mode while recharging, and during night time it starts downloading every patch, every preordered game, everything...

Yes. Specially without needing to have the game card inside the device for retail games to download its patch.

I have this feeling that it will be on the Vita PSN store once MGS Collection is out. Might get a few extra sales for those looking for more MGS once 2 and 3 are done.

Ah cool, I was just thinking since they uploaded all the older MonHun games onto PSN and if I should start with the first and transfer saves, etc. I'll get Freedom Unite if I'm not missing out on anything

1. Hold tap and hold onto an app "bubble" and then you will see an "X" on the corners of each app. Tap the X to delete the app.

Hold your finger on the screen, then hold again (or just tap, I'm not sure) on the bubble you want to delete, and a menu should pop up.

When you're deleting bubbles, make sure to back them up first on your PC or PS3 if you want to keep the game save. I think the bubble and the game save are tied together.

Despite that mock box art, the assassin's creed game coming isn't AC3. It's a stand alone title. Though I've heard rumors they are trying to get cross platform MP into it.


And i've heard exactly the same thing about CoD. It's not BLOPS2, but they are working on cross platform MP with BLOP2.



Take this with a grain of salt as the rumors that make its way to me pre-E3 are getting more and more insane - and tend to contradict each other. But... I have heard that about both of those games from several people now.

Both of those would be pretty awesome, separate SP campaigns but MP that works with PS3, that is what the Vita needs IMO to pull in people, new and old experiences that allows you to play with friends.

Yeah you really don't need a screen protector. I'm amazed that people would want to put anything between "Dat OLED" and their eyes. Just look after it and it'll be fine. Even if you drop it the sticks will stop the screen hitting the floor.

Ay that's what I'm doing, i ordered this screen protector back in April when I ordered my Vita but it's been a month of playing now and I haven had much trouble so I will probably just cancel it.

When I'm not using it I cover the front with a microfiber cloth in its case, which has worked fine so far.

Same. Though I don't really take my Vita outside, its mainly used for playing games while watching netflix or something boring on TV. I like my portables untouched, screen protector would feel weird.

Might as well drop this in here. In a new interview with Kevin Riepl about Burning Skies. Riepl states he's working on an unannounced Sony title for vita. Riepl's game music tends to be action oriented so maybe it will be God of War or Syphon Filter.

I was working on another Vita title for Sony at the same time Resistance: Burning Skies was looking for composers. I was thrown in the mix because the team on Resistance: Burning Skies was really enjoying my material for this other unannounced game.

Vita is the first one where I wouldn't really mind one, as it senses touch before you touch it, so a screen protector wouldn't harm it. But the few times I've used one they always end up wearing quickly and then I don't replace them.
