    I didn't know about that until last night. About half way through I hit a wall. It's going to be tricky from here on in.

    @jonsaan Putty Squad

    Before anyone tries to tell me there's a date at the top of the page, I've been following the game's potential release for ages - since it was due in February 2012 :p

    It's a longshot but I'd like to ask something: I'm interested to import Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time for the PS3, which is region-free and also features cross-buy (or whatever it is called). Will I run into trouble when I try to download the vita version on my EU account?

    @JonFE It probably won't work as the product codes change between regions so it might not let you download through the EU account. That said, I haven't actually bought a Cross Buy game so I don't know if it's a PSN code or something else.

    I actually know this.

    Essentially the code is somehow embedded on the disc, so you put it in your PS3 and an icon comes up which takes you to the store to download the Vita version. It's obviously to stop people selling the Vita code and is why the YOBO only works on retail games if you buy the PS3 version.

    Thank you both!

    So, in other words, it's kind of tricky, because even if there's no actual download code, the significant difference between US and EU release dates could leave me hanging dry...

    Think I'll wait a bit and see how it goes.

    Downloaded life of pixel purely on the basis of this thread. Rather good isnt it, the very defination of retro.

    That's a pretty awful release list. Not going to so a lot to assure those of us worried about the Vita. I got a Ipad for xmas, and considering that Apple doesn't give a fuck about gaming the difference is amazing. Vice City is one of my all time favourite games, yet isn't coming to Vita and instead is released for a platform that really doesn't suit it. Sony are morons.

    Edited to add that I am one of the poor sods that comes from a region not good enough for Sony Mobile, Ireland, yet in the weekly release updates tends to be all that Sony goes on about in Europe. Way to support a platform, makes sure most of your audience can't buy what's released.

    I find it odd the UK has access to psmobile but ireland doesnt. After all was only 60 years ago you left the UK so simliar laws and legislation, why do you not have access? Or as Sony never said.

    Does Vice City not work on the Vita? I could have sworn someone had been playing it.

    There's quite a few releases I'm looking forward to at the moment but I'm always happy to hear new announcements. Definitely some I'd like localised, too, partly because I'd prefer an EU price. :p

    Isn't that Vice City Stories? Which is a totally different game.

    Really really enjoying Life of Pixel, about 60% through and it's consistently great.

    One thing puzzling me is there appears to be a 2nd crystal on the last ZX81 level, but with no possible way to get it?

    L.O.P is a wee bit samey if you ask me. Also the music is very annoying and it's a bit of a missed opp. To have not done machine specific music.

    @jonsaan The developers are already working on an update to include machine specific music. Sound effects too.

    Wowser!

    Nice!

    Don't get me wrong. It's very good. In the top 5 PSM games for sure.

    ZX81 had no sound though....

    Vice city stories is there to buy if you want it, I did however right now I simply don't have the space to keep it on my memory stick, if the price of the 32GB drops to a more reasonable level it will get back on but right now it's filled with other stuff.

    There are some seriously whiny people commenting on the RCR PS blog post. I feel bad for the guy who made the game. I'm not sure if people realise how much work it is, especially for one person.

    The PS blog in general is full of moaning twats, they already own certain games or discounts not to their liking same thing every month. They need to get things in perspective PS+ is only 40 and good value for money. That RCR blog takes things to another level though!

    oh and Vice city stories works fine on vita

    Bloody hell - the comments on the RCR blog post is a total clusterf**k of whinging babies.

    "Oh no, game X has been delayed by 2 months - I want it for free"

    OK, so SCEE haven't handled the whole thing very well (especially on the back of the whole CS debarcle) but some people really need to get some perspective

    Anyway, I hadn't realised this was coming to Vita (cross-buy, cross save) so will snap it up

    No games indeed. Pah.

    It really is. Xseed were getting some similar comments on their Sumioni blog post ("I won't buy this game you kindly decided to localise because it's a year after it was released elsewhere"), but I think the RCR one is worse.

    I have no idea where this sense of entitlement comes from. Be grateful for their efforts to get these games to you and don't tell small hardworking companies that they should work for free.

    We all know where that sort of gratitude gets you. No more games for the Vita, that's what.

    I'm ready and waiting to throw my money at the dev tomorrow - and I could have bought it on 360 if I'd wanted. It's perfect for the Vita though imho.

    Not sure it's my sort of game but I'm tempted to get it regardless just to support the poor bloke. Same with the Xseed ones.

    Reading that comments thread has made me want to do exactly the same - I'll happily throw money at someone who takes the time and care to bring something to the consoles I love.

    So long as it's under a tenner :D

    I'll be commenting later (too much prose to cut through). The complaint about XSEED's game not being available in Aus/New Zealand (or any of their other games for that matter) I thought, while harsh, did require some comment and a response was duly given.

    I resisted the Urge to buy Persona for 3.99, now I'm seeing tweets about it and I'm reconsidering. I don't want it do I? I haven't got the time for it have I?
