I dunno about nintendo deteriorating recently with weird innovations, though... you might be a bit young to remember it, but look up the "virtual boy". while nintendo gets a massive boner off of "innovations" like motion control, the best thing about their systems tends to be the classics - playing a great video game with a classic controller. in playing the wii, i've spent the most time using a gamecube controller. just like in playing the ds, i've spent the most time using buttons and forgoing the optional touch-screen stuff. i barely ever play a game that requires touch-screen control. this is a problem with nintendo, they like to make innovative stuff, but it ends up not being the backbone of their sales.

Yeah, I pretty much agree with that. I've been contemplating about buying a Wii for a while now, but only for some of the games on it. Fuck motion-control. DS was also a great system, but most of my favorite games-except for Hotel Dusk and TWEWY, I guess- the touch screen could be omitted from gameplay, or wasn't used at all.

And also, the NGP is going to have major problems if they can't figure out a way to make PSP games available for the NGP without having to buy them again. Seriously. If people have to rebuy every PSP game they own, and have no way of transferring over file data in the process, I think they'll have serious doubts about buying the new handheld (some of them, at least). I hope they figure out a way to solve this problem.

Woah! Woah! So I heard a rumor and was wondering if anyone else knew something about it.

Anyone know if its true that you can play your PS3 games on your NGP?

ohay gaise so what do we think?

I, for one, think the launch lineup is mediocre. Nothing really interests me, except Uncharted, Modnation, and Gravity Rush, maybe? I dunno; a lot of the interesting stuff, like the Vanillaware games, don't come out till later, along with some other stuff that hasn't been announced. Actually, I'll be getting a lot of the stuff (mostly rpgs) I missed on the PSP first. Hopefully they won't make a habit of just bringing console games over to the Vita and calling that content.

Memory cards are also expensive as fuck. 32 GB Memory Card is $99.99

Well the plans were never going to be cheaper than AT&T's plans for their other devices, right?


Anyway, I'll probably have to wait a year or two before this damn device is reduced to a reasonable price in Australia... ~$360 US for the Wi-fi version? Motherfucker.

I guess your right, it just didn't dawn on me earlier. That's an extra 300 a year though, added on to the price of the memory card and the handheld itself. And only 2GB? :/

You should just come to the states and buy all your shit here, mang.

If there weren't issues with compatibility, insurance, warranties, crazy shipping costs etc, I'd definitely import shit.

$250 for the wifi version? For everything it does, that's not at all unreasonable. I might look into getting one, depending on the games that come out for it. For now, suffice to say, I'll keep my eyes open :)

...I still haven't seen a post in New Members from this guy...

And you won't see any.

So, I bought a Vita last week, and I'm liking it so far.
For the most part, I bought it so I could play Persona 4: Golden,

but the other games I got and all the free games from PS+ make it a nice system.

Sadly, it is not backwards compatible.
There isn't any place to put a PSP disc, as the vita uses these card-chip doodads instead.

However, a vast majority of PSP games are available on the PSN.

Of course you probably wouldn't want to have to rebuy all your games.

They don't even have FF:Crisis Core or KH Birth By Sleep yet, if they're ever getting it.

But if you have PS+, I was able to download like 6 free Vita games in the few days I've had it.

Big games too, like Uncharted, Gravity Rush, Tekken 6, etc.
