No. I have standalone wifi model and it came with AR cards.


Nice to see confirmation for MJ. I feel bad for whoever is at fault though.
I actually like MJ songs so...

Never had a PSP, so this is the perfect opportunity to catch up on PSP games while waiting for Gravity Rush

If I had never owned a PSP and just got a Vita, I would be overwhelmed with too many options and not enough money. Have fun!

My Wi-Fi Vita came with AR cards.
They're still in their plastic wrap and lay abandoned on my bedroom floor in the same spot I dropped them upon unboxing my Vita last Thursday.
Should I open them up?

Are the AR apps out? If they aren't I don't think you need to open them yet.

Given that PSP installs were broken with the last firmware update possibly for Vita compatibility, I'm pretty sure that's a "hell no". Plus trying to activate them just tells me to plug in a Vita.

Ok but when I go to the transfer util in the XMB it tells me "no content found" or whatever.

Fired up blazblue and the graphic quality is really amazing.

And I can't stress how much better the dpad is. It clicks, it's one exposed piece of plastic (not like the awful segmented dual shock dpad) and its really solid for fighting games.

I don't have a Vita on hand, but when I tried to use the file it told me to plug a Vita in with a USB cord then open Content Manager. So I think it's more you have to do everything on the Vita, not on the PS3.

I'm extra curious how it will perform with DJ Max. If the dpad is as good as some agree saying, it may make some songs more playable.

Absolutely true. Although if you happen to double-dip on both versions, Peace Walker is the one non-Vita game you can play on your Vita that can net you trophies through the awesome power of TRANSFARRING.

Played a bit of the Rayman demo. It's wonderful.

Besides the MJ screw up (which doesn't hurt us so eh), Ubisoft really did well for this launch. They matched Sony's discount when they didn't have to (we see other publishers didn't... those jerks). And they put out some quality titles.

I was going to wait on Lumines and Rayman because Ubisoft games drop so quickly, but I change my mind. Free MJ kind of helped push me too. I'm going to pick up both Lumines and Rayman tomorrow (physical).

Really impressed with Ubisoft here.

The only real kick in the teeth from Ubisoft is charging $36/$40 for a $15 PSN game with extra trophies (Dungeon Hunter Alliance).
But aside from that blemish (and giving MJ out for free to make up for platinum-deficient Lumines), Ubisoft is the clear all-star performer of the Vita launch.

For people asking about the Ubi games, when I added Asphalt, Rayman, MJ, and Lumines to my cart, the demos all had options to rate and to buy. Something also to consider when possibly assuming that these indeed are the full games. I'm downloading all 4 anyways. Someone else needs to confirm this. They all let me preview, add to cart, and the whole shabang. Just like it was a full game. And it doesn't say demo when downloading unlike Uncharted (for example) which is a different size from its full version.

To be clear, it's been confirmed that MJ is indeed free? And that all others are indeed demos?

Target deal sounds good. I kinda feel like returning Uncharted to Amazon.
If anything, I'll get Ninja Gaiden and Blazblue/or Rayman, with UMvsC3 being the free game.

Sarcasm aside, when you play the PSP version of Peacewalker and transfer your save to the PS3 version, it doesn't unlock trophies nor does it unlock future trophies while playing on that save on the PS3 if started from the PSP.

Edit: I was wrong, corrected the OP.

For the most part I just find Ubisoft terrible on PC. Consoles they've generally been fine or at least no worse than anyone else out there. Part of why I'm more inclined to get Rayman Origins on Vita than PC actually, depending on what happens with the Steam version, but hell, this sounds like an awesome port anyway.

Yeah, I begun the game on my PS3, transfarred over to my PSP and unlocked trophies just fine when I sent the game back to my PS3.
I imagine it will work the same way on the Vita although I haven't tried it out yet.

The screen is capacitive, not resistive. So it won't detect stylus touches.

It'll be pointless, capacitive works entirely differently from resistive touch screens like on the DS that just needs a hard thing to poke them. You need a special stylus like this one.

Chances are if they're doing a midnight launch, they'd have to have gotten a few preorders to make it worth the time.
