    Heads up

    Sly is also Cross Play


    Players who own Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time on both PS3 and Vita will be able to use the Vita as a controller for the PS3 version of the game.

    Players can also use the Vita as a pair of X-Ray goggles by pointing the Vita at the TV and reveal hidden secrets and other collectables.

    Players can take pictures of loot in the game and reap the rewards using their Vita.


    To activate it:
    Turn on AR server on the PS3 in Options > Game.
    Then on the Vita got to the AR Treasures option located on the main menu.

    And Cross-Play.

    You hold the Vita up to the screen and it reveals hidden objects and stuff. See post at top of this page.

    Moto go is up but it's just Moto gp 13 not 14 and there was two versions by the look of it. Just played hotline Miami for the first time, I can see what all the fuss is about now. Had to wrestle myself away from it, hard as nails though.

    Sly, vita or ps3 - my decision was based on file size - 3GB on vita, or over 20GB on PS3 ... so Vita it is

    @Flying_Pig - the MotoGP game is up, its the 13 not 14 version of the game ...

    Hello everyone.


    I was thinking of picking up a Super Slim PS3. I heard on the net that with PS+ you can "claim" PS4 instant collection games even without an actual PS4 (planning to buy it later).

    Is this actually possible? I wanted to enjoy the PS3 and its library (Persona 5 too...) but being able to benefit from PS4 PS+ in the mean time would be awesome.

    So is it true? How do you do it?

    Wow, thanks a lot. So I can start building a PS4 backlog before I even get the system? Awesome.

    Is this on the actual console? The website's still showing last month's games with a "coming soon" banner for the new ones…

    @Ext

    Use the Sony website

    https://store.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com

    Then just chuck everything in your basket (PS3, Vita, PS4)
    then check out.

    They'll then be on your download list ready to download whenever you want.

    I've suddenly developed a bit of a desire to play a football game (it will pass) but was pleased that PES 2014 was being offered free of PS+.

    As I began the download I went over to Metacritic to make sure that this was a half decent game and was kind of shocked at the disparity between the critic reviews (78) and the user reviews (41).

    I immediately ignored the critic reviews and saw a lot of similarities in what users were saying (i.e. they're not all haters).

    However, most of the reviews are over 6 months old and I wonder: have Konami offered some patches to improve it or should I just stop the download now?

    Its free just download it and make your own mind up. You can guarantee half those user scores are from Fifa players, no idea why people go on meta just to hate something because it isn't the franchise they love but it happens all to often. And for the record Im not a PES fan being defensive haven't had one for about 10 years and haven't had a Fifa in 3 years or so bioth have been stale for awhile imo.

    I downloaded it and it's an absolute joke of a game tbh. Load times horrific, interface laughable, you have to read every individual patch note ever on first boot (of which there are many), the visuals would be mediocre in 2006, the animations (all 5 of them) make the players move like constipated robots, and the game appears to be played with a medicine ball. Apparently this one was stripped back and rebuilt on Fox, but I can't see any evidence of that (but then Konami have been saying every year since 2007 that "this is the real next-gen one, rebuilt with proper animations" and every time it's been a complete fabrication).

    I *want* there to be competition for my money and I want PES to be a viable option again (not least because FIFA's getting a bit complacent and stale now that it doesn't have any real challenge), but it really isn't just a case of "it's not as good as FIFA", it's just a fundamentally bad game by any modern standard in every conceivable way.

    I reviewed PES 2013 and I thought that was more 'enjoyable' to play compared to 2014.

    Against the AI the game breaks down in the middle of the park, with the ball pinging about everywhere as the AI only has to be within 5 yards distance from the ball to intercept it, or deflect it. You then tackle them, the ball pops loose, they get it, you tackle, runs loose, you get, go to pass, game takes too long to pass the ball, they tackle you, it bobbles loose, etc.

    Too many goals are easily scored from outside the box.

    It has zero challenge for the vast majority of the time (Top Player difficulty, Bayern beating me 2-0 at half time, first team I'd conceded against in 8 games, I come back to win 5-2 in the second half).

    Passing is either hampered by too much 'assist' or, when you turn it down, it makes some very ood choices for you unless you turn it off, which is unplayable unless you put hours into it as it takes so long to do anything other than a 1 yard pass.

    Manual throughballs are almost useless, as the AI doesn't give you space and therefore you don't have time to properly charge up a decent throughball.

    It still buffers button presses from ages ago, which means you always have to use 'super cancel' at least 2-3 times a match.

    GK AI is shit. Painfully shit, even after patching.

    They've completely nerfed speed, because the poor little darlings online don't like defending properly (and this is the same for FIFA as well) and instead want to rush in all the time, therefore speed players become very effective against shit/monkey-rush opponents, and rather than educate players to play it the way it should be, they just remove their pace.

    Player stats are very odd - and not really different enough (previous PES games were so good at making better players 'feel' different to lesser ones. This is no longer the case).

    Form arrows are still really irritating as they bare no resemblance to what you're doing on the pitch or achieving from game-to-game.

    TL;DR version, it's a 5/10 game for the casual player potentially becoming a 7/10 if you're patient enough to learn it's 'idiosyncrasys' and quite forgiving.

    Also, if you do download it let me know. So I can beat you 17-0 on this as well! :o)

    Thanks to all three of you for your input.

    Alas, 'Kent', you won't be beating me 17-0 at it because I cancelled the download.

    I'm sure we'll round out a EA FIFA World Cup meet at work (for 'Kent' and I work together) so you can beat me at that instead.

    I'll go easy and stop at 10 this time. :-)

    In all seriousness, I'll never be able to repeat that.

    I think you made the right choice. While free to download, I can see it frustrating you if you played it.

    Just started howling miami on Vita. Great! Feel a bit self conscious playing it on he train, what with it being so murdery and all, but I'm loving it. I'm shit, but loving it.

    Our month-long focus on indie games starts with my look at the PS4's best game (still): Resogun!

    I see the u.s got the Mickey Mouse remake. I'd quite like that to come to our IGC in the not too distant.
