Various PSVita retail games are now 20€ in Italy
Everybody's Golf, Modnation Racers, Little Deviants and Reality Fighters

Source
EG, Modnation and Reality Fighters are actually €14.99 each

Little Deviants is still €24.99

smh Sony


For ItalyGAF: you can get Gravity Rush at €28.15 on amazon.it by using as bonus-code "AMAZON89". A buddy of mine discovered this some hours ago, it really works. Sadly I don't know if it works for other games. Or if it works on other amazon stores.
But, I mean, it's Gravity Rush. If you don't get it at this price you are a terrible person.

I meant retail not Digital Delivery ^_^

Thanks for the code, actually I'll be paying it 31€ on Amazon (I preorder it two months ago...)

Doesn't work on amazon.fr, and the shipping price from amazon.it are bigger than the savings offered by this discount. No luck for me then.

You might need to reupload that... whatever it is :)

Edit: I... I did it.



Looks like E3 banners are starting to go up?

Edit: No. Last year's one apparently.
But they didn't announce the name until after the banners were up last year. Did they put the banner up late?

First plat on the Vita!



Great game as well. The extra courses is worth it? Feeling like rewarding the developers since the game was free.

I've been playing a lot of FIFA, having skipped it the past few years on consoles and am blown away by how good this game looks and plays. Fantastic.

I enjoyed the extra tracks but they felt far too easy. I'm unsure if that was just because I built up my "l337 skill0rs" playing the main game or if they were genuinely too easy. And I'm hardly able to be classified as a good gamer so if I thought they were too easy then others probably will also. I reckon most of the 3 star times could have been made 2 star times and then a new 3 star time added for just about al of the races.

EDIT: as a qualifier for how bad I am, I have just 2 plats, both are for this game.

Just bought the PSN Version of Everybodys Golf for 15 bucks. Sony needs to know how much I like low prices!
It's also my first Vita game since launch. It was about time I got another one.

Tbh the only thing that puts me off LBP is the clunkyness. Modnation has the same thing, prevents me from connecting with it as much as I'd like to. Did LBP2 improve on that? Otherwise it does look like it will be a great game, but I am sure you could find a few other games to enjoy before selling it. If you have to sell it then that's a different story of course.

Really been enjoying Everybody's Golf. It's my first golf game other then some flash game I used to play a while back a little, tons of content and just generally well thought-out and executed. At the discount price for EU (£12?) it should be a no-brainer, instabuy.
Quite a different pace of game than I'm used to but loving that there is still a proper challenge there. I was worried as well it would all come down to a simple timed press but really appreciate the work they put into the details such as the different ways you input your shot! Not to mention the awesome camera angles and the list goes on forever with the unlockables/mp.... They seem to be really milking the courses though, will spoil it and check how many there are after this post.

Btw that little flag on the gauge that (I think) informs you of where you should be aiming for - I've found that to be accurate EXCEPT for the putter, where it is always recommending under-shooting?

theres a HSG thread just in case you didnt know.
http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=462669

The flag is a guideline and is how far your ball will go without any interference (wind,uphill,downhill, rough,rain etc) so on the green if the hole is uphill you need to hit harder and downhill lighter. On putts I always go a tad hard just to be safe as long as its not a wicked downhill slope

I feel the same way. Everything else about those franchises get me giddy. But if you have a platformer that feels that sloppy, it ruins everything. You give me LBP with the feel of Rayman Origins and you have an amazing game.

Plus, how does Sony not take advantage of Sackboy and that world? I feel like if you do it correctly, you can give yourself the cute, feel-good ace title like Mario is to Nintendo.

Didn't we get the AC3 thing clarified like just a prank put on a Italian forum by a kid claiming to be a Ubi developer making up stuff for the Wii-U too?
It wouldn't be the first time that a rumour like that gets large enough to make sites put some fake covers just for the preorders money.

Thanks JackFrost for both things, will check out the thread.

I'm glad I'm not the only one FollowSmoke - hate to be a killjoy with it, and I can totally see how it would STILL be fun for people who aren't trying to speed lap the platfomer :)

Yep, that's what would need to be done for me. Too much of a disconnection for my personal taste between what I want him to do and what he does/when he does it.

I hope to God so. It's probably the main reason I got my Vita.

Or they will say that coming tomorrow all (or a bunch) of ps1 games will be on the store.

remember the conference is on a Monday and their updates are on Tuesdays.

I doubt PS1 will get a mention at their conference.

I would also bet they'll talk about PSP, value bundles and whatnot.

They always update throughout the week during E3. When FFVII was announced for PSN it came on that day when the store usually updated a couple days after.

It would be interesting if they actually decided to significantly alter the physics to a more mario/rayman-like style for the Vita version. This is a somewhat odd opportunity to hit the reset button on issues like that. Maybe only 2 depth planes as well, do we know?

Are you suggesting a FFVII platformer?

Yeah, unless there's a firmware update scheduled for straight after the conference, I don't think they'll talk about it. Sucks, can't wait to play CTR on this thing.

Backlash/potential slanderous arguments about old promises and possibly still not ready :( Hope we are wrong of course.

For PS1 I'm sure that they'll make a FF VII. They'll say "if you connect now, you'll be able to download a firmware upgrade that will allow you to play PS1 games".

That thing should be finished right now (because of the error that we saw a few months ago of the leaked PS1 game), and they're waiting the right moment to trigger it.
