PS Vita
« on: March 03, 2012, 06:31 PM »
I haven't seen any conversation about it, so I thought I'd start one myself. I don't know much about other than what people I know have said which is basically that it's a new psp with it's own type of memory card you have to shell out cash for with the capabilities to play online and maybe able to remote play games from your ps3. But what I'm getting is that not all games have that capability just what might be released later on. Now I looked a little into it myself and I did see an article where some guy was "claiming" to be playing Alice: Madness Returns on it. I don't know if it's true, but I would love the day when we can play Mass Effect or any other games on the move because I am such a person that has time on the way to work and would love to play games while waiting for a bus to work but I never really got into mobile gaming because I just didn't have the capability to sit there and play this side game when I have the game on a system in front of my TV. The PS Vita may change my mind.

Well, from what I have read about the PS Vita is that it is a pretty powerfull portable games console maybe even more power than that of the PS3 due to the fact that it is running on a Quad Core CPU.  But I have read that it is compatible with past Sony PS console games but only if you download them directly from the PS store.  I remember reading an article, which states that Sony would be releasing a program for the PS3, that would enable PS3 owners to rip their PS3 games and transfer them to their PS Vita so that they can play them on the go.  Whether or not they are goin to bring that program out is anybodys guess.

I hope they do. That would be sweet. I just got a ps3 this past year and am still trying to get used to it and remembering that I have it when I borrow games from gamefly. My friend bought it when it first came out and I looked at it and couldn't decide if I wanted to get it but if Sony does do that then I will highly consider it.

If you want some insight on the PS Vita, I have had one since release date. Just ask and I can give you some opinions on it as well.  :-X

The most basic question about the vita is one that me and a few people have talked about. Is it worth it? I mean you have to buy specific stuff for it. Like memory cards and all types of other games. I do want one still because of the assassin's creed game coming out for it, but I don't want to just get it for that one game. How does that remote play work? Do you have to have the ps3 on when you leave or just boot up your vita and then turn off the ps3?

The way remote play works is that you have to have your PS3 on and connected to the net.  This allows you to play your games on your PS3 on your PSVita while you are out and about.  So basically it's a way for you to stream your PS3 games to your PSVita.

Right, and as for buying the one game, if you have any ps one downloads on your ps3, you can copy them over to your vita and play them. I have Final Fantasy Vi through IX on my Vita. I actually bought the Vita for the remastered Final Fantasy X that is coming out. There are a lot of options on memory cards and such too. Since you have not bought one yet, there are knock off brands of cards that are less than $20, and even the games you could go to Gamestop and pick up a used game for about the same. Things are getting cheaper on it now, however the system its self is still expensive.
