Target had Ninja Gaiden, but that was the only game they had that I wanted. I'll give them a f days to stock up.

Also, my question still remains regarding transferring MJ The Experience. Does it delete for any reason (free Ubi version)?
 
Vita's PSN Store could really use a video preview or pics of games listed both in the Vita and PSP sections. Sure, I could switch to the clumsy browser and google images of some of these obscure PSP titles, but a bit of convenience would be nice.

It needs more demos. Especially if they want me to buy a $36 download that is non refundable or has no resale value.
 
I think the UK PSN accounts are evil, or something like that. I read that if you downloaded the HK demo of Ragnorok you could run it on a different account on the Vita. I downloaded it on my PS3 and it doesn't transfer to the Vita, since it's not linked to my UK account. :(

Been on vacation to Belgium for the weekend, vita advertising took over the subway station near where we were staying, so proud when my wife shouted "there is sackboy" at the top of her voice as she saw him in the crowd
 
Went to a Target in Fort Lauderdale. They had UMVC3, Wipeout, Uncharted, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, FIFA and something else.

They would only sell me Uncharted. He said everything else was street dated for the 22nd.

Lame.

By transferring, do you mean from memory card to another memory card? I backed up my 4gb last night to transfer to a 16gb, and after transferring, the MJ game was still there in full. Hope that answers your question.

Absolutely, especially considering transferring PSP demos from the PS3 Store is a no-go.

In a related topic, I just went over to the Movies/Video side of the Vita's PSN store. No trailers or previews available for any of the movies. That sucks. Fix that shizz, Sony.

Maybe this will happen when the system actually launches in a few days.
I wager you $5 space bucks it won't.

I think so, yeah. I'm going to take it off my memory card so I can put either MHFU or DJ Max 3 on there....Something I'll play more, ha. Thanks!
 
JP store is really good about having demos for almost every game. US store needs to get their stuff together.

Same situation as the 3DS store and demos. US stores ftl :/

As long as you back up the entire game to your PS3 or PC, that won't be a problem. It wasn't for me, as I removed it once to download some demos onto my measly memory card, only to move MJ back onto the card with no issues.

Awesome - I'll do that after I finish my round of Hot Shots, ha. Thanks again for the informative and quick responses.
 
So I just downloaded the twitter all of the Hong Kong store, along with the Ragnarok and Garvtiy Rush demo. We'll see if they transfer to my US vita with a US account
They will.

What I'm curious to know is if non-NA content is backed up with content manager on PC.
I backed up my JPN stuff while on my JPN account, but then switched regions on my Vita.
I'm thinking no.
 
So I just downloaded the twitter aland Flickr app off the Hong Kong store, along with the Ragnarok and Gravtiy Rush demo. We'll see if they transfer to my US vita with a US account
Shouldn't we be getting our own Twitter and Flickr this week or have they not been announced yet. I'm tempted to jump on the Hong Kong store for the Gravity Rush demo but I hate the idea of having to redo all my settings. :(


They will.

What I'm curious to know is if non-NA content is backed up with content manager.
I'm thinking no.
If it is, can it not be copied from the file location on the PC to the web and then used in another content manager. If it's not tied to an account I would assume so.
 
So Vita doesn't have a 'resume game' state like the PSPgo?
What's the PSPgo's resume game state like?

On the Vita, you get press the PS button which pauses the game and takes you to the Home Screen. From there you can access other apps like friends, trophies, or near, and resume your game when you're done. Some apps and all games will require you to close the currently running game to use.
 
This thread causes me much pain. 3 days. 3 agonising days of waiting left.
did anyone get these pre order bonus? i think it's Europe deal
Got the earphones, really really bad imo but eh, can't complain that much when they were essentially free. It's weird cause we were supposed to get the wallet here but everywhere I looked they offered these instead.

I have a UK account, downloaded Ragnarok from the HK store, won't transfer to my Vita as it says it's not linked to the right account. :/
 
I'll confirm all those downloads once they're done. As far as twitter goes, it says English/Chinese so I'm assuming it's the same app as we will get, just they haven't given it to us yet.

Now I'm on the JP store and just downloaded something that says "uke-torne". What the heck is that lol

I think you have to be on your HK-Account on Vita and then just switch to your UK account after the transfer.
You should be able to still play it on your UK-Account then.

But I don't have a vita yet, so I could be wrong.

Allows you to save a game anywhere, exit out, play a different game, then resume exactly where you left off if you decide to play the original game again.
 
Trails in the Sky is available for download (it's certified/officially compatible, on Sony's list) and it got a price drop to $20 on PSN recently.
Yeah, Trails not Tales, my bad. Received Tales of Abyss recently so my mind was on that.

Allows you to save a game anywhere, exit out, play a different game, then resume exactly where you left off if you decide to play the original game again.
Oh, well you can't have two games running at once as it will close the "save state" of the original game to start the second game.

Example of what happens when I try to start up WipEout 2048 with another game running.

 
Am I the only one really bothered by the lack of manuals? WTF is this shit lol
I have some mixed opinions about it. I pretty much never read the manuals, maybe i flip through some of them fast just to see. On the flip side, i like manuals for collection purpose, like having a game complete with cart/disc, box and manual. But then again, if there is no manual included in the first place, then that is one less thing to think about when collecting, especially when buying used games.

Does no Vita game have manual by the way? I know that the 1st party games doesnt, but what about 3rd party?

The PSPgo would also automatically create a save state if the battery ran low and the unit put itself to sleep as a precaution. I guess we'll see how the Vita handles it.

Does anyone know anything about that CTA Digital screen protector that Amazon is now including with the 3G launch bundle? I'm thinking I may just go ahead and put in an order for the Hori one since I know nothing about the CTA protector. Still deciding on a case though, ugh. I've had this case for my PSPgo . . .

. . . and love it, but I'm not sure if there's anything similar for the Vita in the states.
 
this has probably been asked already but I can't see anything...what are some of the best PSP games to get for vita? I know there was that gamesradar list, but I would prefer a GAF thread if there is one that I've missed.

Are you doing this through your PS3 or directly on the Vita?
 
That's not going to work then Mike unless you also switch accounts on the Vita.
None that I've tried.. I download Gravity Rush from both the HK/JP store and neither worked. I also dled VT4 with no success.
You have to download them on your Vita directly.
Then switch accounts and not erase the memory card on the same system.
