I'm a PS Plus subscriber without a Vita, but the offerings currently available have actually pushed me into buying a Vita. Can't wait!


Good response.

Ok yeah I imagine this will track about 3 out of 20 guys as I'm sure you done your research or a gamer so you're up to date on such news.. But soccer moms? Lil Johnny ? Or the high school kids? Those are the guys you want to attract in some kind of way as I'm sure you can gain about 4 million users from these groups. Over a period of 2'years since this is Sony we're talking about.


That's a very good point, but unfortunately I don't see Sony advertising PS Plus much if at all. Everyone that seems to value the service tends to be those that typically follow the gaming industry. Personally, I think Sony's main priority in regards to the Vita should be to increase the user base substantially, and then attract developers and publishers. For example, I'd love to see how a GTA built from the ground up for the Vita would do commercially. I know COD Declassified was supposed to do that but I'm certain it's less than positive reception hurt it quite a bit. Sony desperately needs those AAA developers working on Vita content in order to attract a proper audience, but unfortunately publishers seem content with handing off their projects to lower tier developers. I think PS Plus on Vita is a good step forward, but I don't know if it's exactly the one that should be taken first. Maybe if there was some kind of major marketing push in regards to PS Plus, one that shows the tremendous value it is. Maybe get those, like me, that own both a PS3 and 360 and pay for Xbox Live to give the service a try. Hook them with great content and discounts on both platforms. Sorry for the short story type response. :P

I'm also going to be getting a Vita now as well. Persona4 Golden and the free ps+ games are more than enough for me to get one now.

About to buy a vita on black Friday.

So...200 USD before taxes. I get a system, 4GB, and AC:L.

My "game" plan is to:
Take AC:L to best buy.
Use my store credit, and the 17 dollars left on a gift card to buy a 16GB (for now).
Buy P4G, RO, ZE:VLR, and a ps+ sub for whatever is the least (3 months I think).

So for around 300 dollars...probably pushing 400, I get five-ish games for a month "free"? Okay Sony, I'll try you out.

And...I just 're realized how much I am spending. I feel the aneurysm. Oh God.

Nice. I played it on the PS2 and loved it to death and it'll be my first purchase for the Vita. How's Liberation? I've heard conflicting reports in regards to it's quality.

Don't trade in's require the game case? Just a heads up in case they do because I believe a case isn't included.

it starts out pretty slow, but once it gets going it's pretty good, one thing i like about the game is i actually find myself using the tools more than in previous game. i've never played brotherhood or revelations though so my opinion might differ to some.

I recently traded in some old hand-me-down DS carts. My best buy accepts them without a case.
