Decent thread.

An addition that would be nice would be:

How does it look compare to on psp?

I assume it varies depending on game (same with 3ds BC).

It's good, but if it was my first Ys game, I wouldn't have stuck with the series. The game has way too much dialogue, most of which is boring, and I really miss being able to jump, if only because it varied up the action. I'd definitely recommend Oath in Felghana over Seven.

If it's any consolation, it's possible to fast forward through it all. Granted, I haven't finished the game (the backtracking was really off-putting), so the ending might be decent.

tactics ogre is some complicated shit there, don't even bother if you're not an intellectual. the mechanics are beyond the davinci code. Really deep.

Ys 7 is awesome, good buy.

I'll reiterate for the umpteenth time that Trails in the Sky is REQUIRED playing for all JRPG enthusiasts.

Also, I'll mention that a handful of "unavailable" JRPGs are in the UK marketplace and would theoretically be Vita playable if purchased digitally via PSN tokens and downloaded directly or transferred via PS3.

Those being...
- Breath of Fire III
- Final Fantasy I
- Final Fantasy II
- Phantasy Star Portable 2

People have already confirmed that PSP2 works plenty fine on Vitas already.

Every game looks better on Vita than on PSP. Every one. Perfect 1:1 scaling results in a beautifully crisp image. You have the option of turning on bilinear filtering, which can make some titles look better (though others worse, IMO).

I don't know about graphics, but any game with camera mapped to dpad is a significantly better experience on the Vita.

I suspect games like Monster Hunter, 3Rd Birthday and Dissidia might look AMAZING on Vita because they looked AMAZING on PSP but add to that a proper camera stick.

I'm not all that great at SRPGs but I still loved Tactics Ogre. Just make sure to actually read the optional text files the game provides explaining some of its deeper mechanics and you should be fine. The PSP version has a few things added in to make the game more approachable, including the ability to rewind time up to 50 turns (from you and the enemy combined) so that if you mess up too bad it's always possible to rethink a strategy.

That aside, my main advice would be: upgrade dodge and counter skills early, archers can become AMAZING very easily so keep a few around, and have two wizards with at least one area of spell type overlap so that once one has cast, say, wind on an opponent and he's become weakened to it, the other can follow up with even better damage.

Edit: Okay, and now I have a question. Don't games presumably have to have second analog support patched in? Is that the case for all the "Sony approved" ones in the OP?

When you type in usernames for save data, I can confirm for practically all PSP games it uses the Vita's touch keyboard.

Well, Cladun 1 is only $9.99 via Gamestop.com. Best reason to try it out now! And IMO both are worth playing. Actually I enjoyed the first more since the music's better.

You guys are insane. Ys 7 is a great game. Yeah it has some superfluous plot and dialogue, but hardly anything detrimental. I HIGHLY recommend the game.

Eh, it's the only Wild Arms game I didn't own (I'd kind of forgotten it existed, to be honest), and $10 was just too tempting. I like challenging games most of the time, so maybe it'll be fine.

I remember having some fun with the first game, but then I got it cheap and I'm the type who likes clunky dungeon crawlers (incidentally, I'm also a fan of the first Persona). Watch some videos of it, maybe? I don't know that I played it enough to really recommend it.

Well, it's only €5.99 so I don't need a glowing recommendation of it. Even though I already own Persona on UMD I was considering double dipping for the convenience.

So we can consider BoF III and FFII as part of Group 1.
PSP2 can be considered part of Group 2 (using the PS3 as a bridge works fine).

I would imagine FFI works similarly but we won't know for certain until someone tests it out.

You are probably best of starting with either Persona 3 or 4. Since we're getting an enhanced Vita port of P4, I suggest you give Persona 3 Portable a try.
