Got myself a Vita today along with Uncharted. I have been enjoying this fella so far.

I got a few bucks on my PSN account so I have been wondering about buying some SNK games. Anyone knows how good the ports are in the SNK Arcade Classics and the mini releases? (Especially Fatal Fury and Athena)

.... well the problem is there isn't one near by.
this.

High reccomendations for Tales of a Space Blob. This is awesome. The mechanics change up every level it seems like. I only hate the Tilt-A-Blob levels. But I can't lie, they are addictive.

I'm sad about this:

http://andriasang.com/con114/cave_vita_titles/

Cave Cans PlayStation Vita Titles

Cave pledged its support for PlayStation Vita at Tokyo Game Show last year as it announced two games for the platform, a shooter and a social game. It looks like both titles won't be released, as Famitsu's release schedule lists them as canceled.

The announced social game was a version of the popular Sengoku-themed Shirotsuku. The Vita version was said to make use of positioning and Wi-Fi. See this story for details.

No details were shared for the shooting game, but Cave did promise to make use of the system's unique capabilities.

Famitsu's release schedule lists canceled games as just a footnote beneath the main release list, so for an explanation of why the games were canceled we'll presumably have to wait for an earnings report.

^^Fucking E3. It's now I really wish my brother had taken a job with SCEE he was offered. Selfish goon declined and went for a better paying and, in his opinion, more "interesting" role.

If it is better paying job then it is all good.

Are you sure you are not being selfish?

So I registered a twitter account yesterday in order to use twitter to open up a browser without quitting a game since using Starbuck's wifi requires hitting their site, clicking a checkbox, and hitting okay. I do all this registration crap through the browser on the vita and I was a little relieved that this wasn't a totally terrible experience.

Fast-forward to today and I open up twitter. The twitter client can't connect. I have to open up the browser in order to hit the checkbox and okay before the client can access the internet. Fuck.

I guess I should stop being cheap and get broadband internet instead of leeching off Starbucks. #gamechanger

Does anyone know if there is a way to modify a video file so that it shows a little preview image in the PS Vita video menu? If I download a video off of the PSN there is a preview image beside the text for the video, but all of my personal videos have a generic image beside them. Any way to do that manually on the system, or embed it into the video itself?

Does the Vita allow game sharing if you download games from PSN? Can you play the same game on 2 Vitas at the same time without buying it twice?

A small 213x120 .jpg with same name in same folder will give you that.

So i got an 8GB card and i would like to transfer all of my save files from my 4Gb to it but i dont want to lose any of files... i have 25+ hours in Disgaea and i only have 1 month left of games in MLB the Show. Plus obviously various other games i wouldnt want to restart.

So how simple is it to transfer save files?

i was just going to use the 8GB for my psp games and start putting all the new games i get for now on on it.

you could just do a full backup/restore couldnt you?

I did it a few times just learning how eveything works and that should do the trick....im sure theres a easier way but just to get it done id go that route

Should be really simple. Make a backup on content manager via pc or ps3 and transfer over to your new memory card.

the saves should pop back up when you put the game in. As for the trophies on the Vita idk....if i had to resynch them or not....never really looked on the Vita side

yeah the MK save was there, scared me a little at first.

when i sync with the server the trophies dont come back up, just whatever vita game i out in from here on out will pop up on the Vita side. they are all still on the PSN side of course though.

Wow those are great. But I knew someone, somewhere would make good use of it. Talented artists can make anything happen. I wonder if they used some type of Touch Pen; like the DS pen.
I am expecting great updates for the application in the near future. It can be more advanced.

Got a Vita just now for my birthday. :D

No games for now, but I'm really excited to check the system out.

Do you guys recommend any screen protectors? I feel uncomfortable just touching the thing.
