I just wanted to say I absolutely love being able to take in game screenshots with the vita. Whoever at sony decided that should be a regular feature is a genius.

Now if they coul ever add some sort of time tracker (like on the 3DS)
That would count all the time you invest in games i'd be estatic.
i'd like it if it worked with all games and DIDN'T make all the screenshots look like shit :/

By default all games have screenshot functionality. Developers have to actually remove that function themselves. Capcom, an amazingly well known huge supporter of the platform is one of those companies who has removed said feature from their game(s).

You're joking, right?
Why would I be joking? Capcom's already brought a top shelf console quality experience in ULTIMATE MARVEL VS. CAPCOM® 3 and will seemingly continue the trend with the worldwide sensation STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN later this year. Capcom's the premiere PlayStation Vita supporter with a large variety of titles for the platform yet to be announced.

Of course I'm being sarcastic, Capcom's got a terrible Vita lineup.

Question for fellow multi-lingual, multi-regional Vita/PSP fans:

I'm thinking of buying and playing Valkyria Chronicles 3 E2, the reissue special edition that contains all the DLC. But I really want to play it on the Vita. I'd pay the extra money to buy the download version, but I've already set my Vita up with my US PSN account. I have a Japanese account (along with the US one) on my PS3; it is possible to buy this game on the PS3 and then transfer it to the Vita's memory card?

(This is why I hate even the halfway region locking that the Vita has. The hassle of not knowing how to play all the games you want is itself a cost.)

After seeing VC2 on the Vita, I've become a huge fan of the big screen. It really does make everything look better. I'll probably double-dip for Tactics Ogre ($20 for the download; much less for physical) for this reason too.

You can download all games across all accounts on one memory card, but you need to be signed into the respective account to play any particular full game. Most demos work regardless of what current account you're signed into, if I recall correctly.
 
I've been banging out a bunch of psp games on the vita videos lately. I still have about 20 to go (and I'm sure I'll buy more). Anyway, check it out. http://foryourvitahype.com/2012/07/03/psp-games-on-the-vita-a-video-project-in-progress/

And for the new guys, which there seems to be a lot of, here's a compilation video I did a week back. I'm pretty proud of it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GILll4h_UU&sns=em

My friend who helps with the site who lives in japan (he is from nz) is playing dokuro currently and loving it. I need a new vita game in the worst way :/

Thanks, good to know. This also means I can have a PSN game across all of them right? :)
You can only access content that was downloaded from that account. So if you have a Jap account and an EU account on the same card, you'll only be able to access the EU content when you are on the EU login. All Jap contene will be hidden.

There have been a couple of instances where a Demo was available on all accounts but not may.

Just bought Virtua Tennis 4 from PSN because of the discount and nostalgia from my Dreamcast days. And damn, what kind of witchcraft are they using for the graphics? Native res, 60fps, the game is beautiful! Not only that, but it plays perfectly and has a lot of content too.
Great purchase!
Totally agree. This game just pops on the Vita screen. Obviously not a lot happening on screen compared to some other games, but dang, what's there looks amazing!

Just won the Australia challenge at the end of season one. Was a bit of a battle with Djokovic in the final but I managed to return one of his super shots when he had match point, and then went on to win from there.

Definitely happy with the purchase, especially at the sale price on EU PSN.

Yeah, more fighting game ports. Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition 2013 with exclusive green haired Ken let's go!

Capcom, you can redeem yourself by releasing a Last Ranker Vita port and localizing it
lol who am I kidding ;_;
Has Capcom US ever even commented on The Last Ranker?

Eeee... was considering getting Montezuma Blitz after all this talk but then it seems like people have a hard time not buying incredibly expensive DLC - makes me scared.
The lack of impulse control that sees you buying Montezuma Blitz DLC would also likely have you infected with a few nasty STDs and imprisoned for compulsive shop lifting, so I wouldn't worry about it unless you're an ex-con with a rotten Peter...

I crumbled and bought the most expensive DLC once. I don't remember ever getting any STDs or anything though ;D

Sorry about that.

The only way Id get IAP's on ToMB is if they had a one off purchase so bonuses and stuff cost no gems. I hate the pay to get higher score systems. Why I don't really like bejeweled blitz but i really like the normal version.

Really trying to not look at new games. I have this annoying back catalogue to finish off. And some are all long ass RPG's (luna, tactics and TiTS) lol.

Although MGS HD is kinda calling to me as a purchase next month.

Its odd because the only other thing thats done this to me is steam with there crazy sales. For my xbox I always just bought the odd game here and there for multiplayer.

I got mine replaced due to one of the lines being darker than the others. but trust me. every vita has them. Its just more noticeable in darker games. Even those nasty ass blotches in the middle of the screen
I got lucky as I don't have the vertical lines, but I do have the blotches. Lightly, though, only really noticeable in a dark room and on a dark scene. I'm really hoping they iron out the AMOLED technology, as I love it so much more than LCDs.

Haven't noticed any lines yet, but the blotches were all over the place on my launch-Vita and now they're almost gone!

what are the chances that MGS:pW is getting a price-cut in the next few weeks (europe)? is that a possibly scenario? its 20€ in the EU-store but im seriously considering buying it NOW, even for that ridiculous price.

yeah i think the botches are a lot smaller / there are less of them that when I first bought it.

Doesn't bother me tho as its only on black and in very dark rooms.

Never noticed the lines thing people are talking about though.

I don't know about the "next few weeks" but during the recent PSVita sale, Andy said that PW wasn't on sale because there's "something coming up". Andy deals with PSN sales, so this almost certainly means some kind of discount is coming sometime.

it could be next month or it could be ages away. Up to you if you want to wait or not.

Here's a link to Andy's explanation http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2012/06/26/ps-vita-sale-on-playstation-store/#comment-235041

Supposedly people are saying the more use we give the vita all of the tiny blotches and lines goes away. Cant say anything since I just bought mine less than a week ago. But hearing this from you guys can confirm it may be a bit true

It's probably just my imagination but I think my OLED blotches are shrinking too. Not much bigger than 2mm in the bottom and top left now. I really only spotted them during MGS HD transition scenes while playing in a dimly light room.

Mine had a HUGE smear in corner....it looked exactly like a broad paintbrush stroke that is now 3/4 the size it used to be, so some definitely shrink
