Is Star Wars: Battlefront II for PSP worth it? Is it similar to the PS2 version?

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!
 
Nice vid. So is the FEB the only version with AR cards? I was surprised they weren't in the smaller box with the vita.
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?
 
After seeing the Tekken 6 icon during the Giant Bomb Monday stream I was thinking about
Picking it up on PSN, until I saw the god awful $39.99 price...oh well guess I'll have to wonder cause that's way too much to double dip
 
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'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.

That sounds hawt. I hated the PSP d-pad so much
 
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.

Yup, shit on Ubisoft all you want, but they provided demos and discount pricing on day one for all their games. Good show
To be clear, it's been confirmed that MJ is indeed free? And that all others are indeed demos?
 
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.
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.
 
A silly question, is ok to touch the screen with a touch pen?, like the one that comes with the 3DS, I'm asking not only if the screen is responsive but also if the screen will not end with scratches.

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.

Anyone? My media go doesn't say demos for me on them.

Damn right ! Where are your free games ?

Yap, buying Rayman Origins day 1 too. Played the PS3 version in Target today.

Was waiting for the first thief comment.

They're all like that.
MJ = This is It
QUE lol

Ok so it's been confirmed by some with Vita's that MJ is the full version for sure? But the others appear to be so as well or they have all been debunked?

This has been confirmed a few times, actually. :p
People have actually played them and got trophies on them?
