    @elstoof The deal is still a bit rubbish because if you think about it, the 4GB card is only going to store one or 2 of the PS+ collection ;)

    I had a code for 30 days free plus in with my Hitman absolution ps3 game. Though how i am going to use it? It says i need a credit/debit card to activate it and it will automatically start charging for 90 days after the trial. I dont have a credit/debit card so would have to use my fathers and he's overdrawn :o

    Was that DOA announcement a piss take? Or why was the subtitles written by a 4 year old. Still, the Playsation Vita exsisting communities and eveyone will be pretty happy.

    Great news about DOA5, really hoping VF2 arcade version is also for the Vita.

    @Edtuckerartist

    You can cancel the feature before it kicks in, unless your console was to breakdown.

    http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/current/account/plus.html

    But it is does seem completely illegal in the UK, how these service can take money by such stealth means without needing explicit authorization from the user.

    Granted PSN is excellent value in what it offers, but I was happy to let my 3month sub expire, as I'd only subscribed to get round a DRM save file situation when I changed HDDs, and was massively irritated by it automatically taking 12 out of a 30 PSN card I preloaded to buy games or rent films, even though automatic wallet funding was disabled.

    Regardless of whether this type of crap is considered legal in the US with Live/PSN, I'm going to be making a formal complaint at some point this year to UK's ombudsman for such matters, to try and get this cowboy issue fixed.

    I'm not sure how it's illegal. The same renewal practice is used by insurance companies who are governed by the FSA. This is certainly not illegal in the UK banking and financial services industry. MS also does the same thing with Xbox Live Gold and that has been running for 10yrs.

    In fact before you can even purchase PS+ there was a big box (only about 5 lines of text) that you had to manually accept before you could complete the transaction, which stated that PS+ would automatically renew and it told you where to go to remove the automatic renewal after purchase. That was in place over 20 months ago.

    @Chessboxer

    I know it was Live that started this insidious practice in console service renewals. But just because insurance do it, where it makes sense, doesn't mean it is an acceptable practice for consoles (entertainment/toys).

    Consumer rights in the UK can be changed when people highlight such issues. In my case, I was genuinely re-entered into a contract, I certainly hadn't consented to, and was given no cooling off period to return or cancel the unwanted service for a refund.

    IT professionals are desensitized to reading even small amounts of T&Cs(as even judges have admitted they are), and because I'd already disabled automatic wallet funding, I didn't expect any auto spending on my account. Why would I?

    After getting the email about the charge, I logged in and changed the option straight away, as it had been the first time it was brought to my attention, and I'm sure many others do the same the first time they get done.

    Fortunately PSN is excellent value for money(imo), and my brief feeling of being defrauded, and robbed didn't last long (as I downloaded Gravity Rush), but this is not acceptable on Live or PSN in the UK, and I will make enquires to get it changed, so that the default behaviour is to have people opted out of a renewal, so that consent is explicit.

    To automatically start a paid subscription would be fine by me but I would like to see a opt out box when signing up to such things.

    So I've just bought a Vita with LBP and a 4gb memory card for for 150. Good deal?

    I'd say so, I just ordered one with NFS and a memory card for 200 and I thought that was a decent price.

    I need some help please.

    Larger downloads are failing right at the end on my Vita. Gravity Rush downloads completely, and then when it's finished it says 0 seconds remaining, it starts from the beginning... The Jet Set Radio trial did the same.

    Smaller downloads like Mutant Blobs Attack download just fine.

    Any suggestions?

    Sounds like you should format your memory card and see if it still does it then.

    I do like how every time I go away for a few days there's an announcement for a Vita game I would love to play. I clearly need to take more trips.

    I also appear to have got a message on EG telling me 'actually, i seek for true friendship and partner'.

    Not sure if this was posted already (I didn't spot it from a quick look at any rate!) but there will be a Soul Sacrifice limited edition Vita. Only announced for Japan so far but it's not unheard of for us to get limited edition consoles for games released over here.

    @santashi Would have been a good announcement - except that Siliconera's noted that should Monster Hunter 4's release date be correct (March 2013), then it'll clash.

    Oh the irony!

    @HiddenAway Oh, is that the DoA release window? Quite a while off then.

    Edit: Actually, you were probably referring to my other post about the LE Vita, weren't you? I think. Don't mind me! :D

    Oooh. My PS3 has turned up. Now to quiz my favourite crowd of gamers as to the best exclusives/PSN downloads to look out for... Okami HD, Journey & Tokyo Jungle aside as I've already got my eye on those ;-)

    @Murbal

    Definitely get Plus, would wait before you download anything as the Christmas sale should start in a couple of weeks and I would imagine a couple of those will be in there.

    Would also recommend Wipeout (and the add on packs are cross compatible with Vita), the Pixel Junk games, Dead Nation, Flower, Siren and probably a few more that I have forgotten.

    @RunningMan 7.99 this weekend? Already done :-)

    Couple of current games on PS+ that I'll be checking out but others I've either got no interest in or have played on 360 already! Don't regret it though - and I'll happily play through Arkham City again in a couple of weeks!

    So as I've bought the DLC for Wipeout on Vita, does this mean I'll get to download Wipeout HD on PS3 for free?

    Oh, I'll be all over the R&C games too :-)

    And (finally) Phantasy Star Portable 2 and Valkyria Chronicles 2 for Vita \o/
