    I won't go near Amazon with a 150 foot bargepole outside of the Black Friday offers. I've had multiple horrible experiences with non-preorder purchases.

    'Sides, it's cheaper by quite a margin to just get two 16gb cards from there anyway, which is just backwards pricing.

    @SomaticSense - fair enough - I've never had an issue with them, personally.

    Not updated yet, but the comments on the PS Blog are amazing - dozens of randoms bemoaning the lack of some niche feature that they 'demand'.

    I don't even understand the gripes about the UI - sure it's not especially pretty or slick, but it does it's job perfectly well. And as for needing to exceed the 100 icon limit - bananas!
    They definitely need to exceed this. Just make it a 30 top level icon limit, create a snapshot to be each folders' top image and only load the inside of folders when they are opened. That would surely be easier on the device's ram than the current max of 10 screens of 10.

    If you enjoy PSM games, that can easily be 20 apps, there's 20 or so system ones (40) + 30 boxed titles (70) + 30 PSN/PSP/PS1/demos games etc and thats 100 already. They are punishing the customers that spend the most by not allowing more than 100 installs even if the memory is there.

    I'm torn between hating Amazon because they're tax-dodging twats, and loving them because their customer service is always (IME at least) absolutely amazing. So yeah, that surprises me too.

    The Midlands. So no, not really.

    I've had to wait over a week on occasion for them to even acknowlege an 'in stock' order and start processing it, let alone for it to arrive. I gave them enough chances. No longer.

    And then there's the issue over taxes...

    I don't think I've ever had any huge problems with Amazon. Their packaging choices are a serious mystery, but other than that...

    Anyway, looking forward to Broken Sword.

    Yeah, can't wait. I wish it was released at the same time as the PC version, but before Christmas would be great.

    True. I'm just happy that it's being released in the same month. :)

    Decided to get a slim Vita, mostly because of the battery gains, but now I've actually handled it the thing feels so much more comfortable. It feels like it's half the damn weight. The lime green is a lovely colour too. In fact all of them are - I actually considered going with the pink one for a surprisingly long time.

    How bizzare. I am the opposite, I basically only buy from Amazon or John Lewis now as their customer service and returns policy is off the chart.

    @rumblesushi Yeah, I've never really had a bad experience from Amazon when concerning the vita. Although their packaging on occasion is a mess. I've seen a couple of 1-star reviews for vitas that have been disappointed with the state of the packaging that makes the item out to look like used.

    Amazon are weird with their packaging. I've had them send art books with tight thin card around them, meaning bashed corners. On the other hand they send a plastic banana cover in a box big enough to fit a printer in.

    Pound for pound Amazon are by FAR the most reliable online retailer in my experience. Considering how much I buy from them (more or less everything apart from groceries) the hit rate is incredibly high, and on the rare occasion they fuck up they're always quick to correct and compensate.

    I'm a fan.

    I particularly like the 99p ish kindle deals they do (daily or sale).

    I should try to pretend this post is on topic by suggesting an ereader (or dreaded according to autocorrect) for the Vita.

    Speaking of Amazon, the Subscribe and Save is worth looking at for discounts on repeat purchases. Adding a load of baby shit at the moment.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    On topic - CastleStorm coming tomorrow. Anyone know if it's worth snapping up? Assume it'll be 7.99..?

    The only thing wrong with Amazon is Yodel. Total shit. Oh and their tax situation.

    But this is the Vita thread. So 'nuff about Amazon. Viva la Vita

    Is it tower defence? (Suppose it could be a game about weather control...)

    Previous versions have had decent reviews and it does look fun. Looks like it borrows elements from Angry Birds but adds many layers. You can build your own castles too which, depending on what rooms you add, gives you access to different troops and spells and such.

    It'll be a trial and unlock deal so we'll at least get to try it out first.

    Nice and informative review of the Vita version here.

    Oh dear, I'm such an idiot! I decided I might as well try to Platinum this game because I play it a lot. I spent a few hours going through all the levels to get a certain trophy... Which didn't appear. After checking my trophy list I discovered that I actually got the trophy just over a year ago. Perhaps I should have checked earlier. :p

    @Flying_Pig Project Diva f. I think the only thing standing in my way at the moment, grinding aside, is the Negaposi Continues song. I imagine that will take a fair amount of practice to pass. I can manage some Extreme songs, but find that one on Hard a nightmare. :o

    Slightly odd/dodgy question:

    If someone were to sell me a memory card with some games on it, I wouldn't be able to play them without the sellers PSN login info, right?

    @Zizoo Yes, you'd need to be logged in as the person who bought the games.

    So unlucky with the timing of the PSN going down for maintenance. Getting a Vita delivered today but all it's games are download tokens.

    Got a message from the courier saying it'll be delivered between 13:30 and 14:30...DOH!

    Never mind, least I can have a look at the features :)

    speaking of Project Diva F, it's now getting released over here as per the Blog.

    Anyone know how it compares to DJ Max?

    @Kangoo Very different gameplay. I prefer it personally but it depends on the individual, I'd assume. I've not played very many rhythm games but I've put around 50 hours into Project Diva f. The satisfaction of improving as you play is brilliant: things that once seemed impossible transform into achievable goals. The tunes can be pretty catchy, too, although I like some more than others!
