    Heres a stupid question that i feel stupid for asking :

    Do PSP games get upscaled on the Vita or do they get any sort of improvements at all?, or do they just look prettier because their on the OLED screen?

    There is a Bilear Filtering option, and Colour Space option that does improve the visuals a little bit, but so far it seems to depend on the game. The 3d GTA games don't look great, but the likes of Trails in the Sky and Final Fantasy 4 look amazing. Probably because of the screen. 3rd Birthday and Gods of War also look they could be vita games.

    The games also run a good deal slicker from what I can tell. Guess it's the improved processor; similar result I'm guessing you'd have seen from an overclocked PSP.

    Thanks for the responses fellas - i'll follow it up with my final stupid question of the day :

    If i want a PSP game to play on my Vita, can i buy a boxed copy? (IE, do the PSP UMD's work in the Vita?)

    cheers

    Unfortunately not. :/

    Edit: I meant unfortunately that there's no transfer system, by the way - I'm glad that the Vita doesn't use UMDs! :p

    Chinatown is about 600mb, the other 2 between 1.2 and 1.4 gigabytes I think.

    Around 1.2GB for LCS, and 855MB for VCS, although I swear it's bigger than that when downloading it.......

    Think you sold me on China Town.

    Never been into that style of game, but very tempted by FF.

    The GTA games are some of the best that were released for the PSP. Liberty city is still my favourite, even though Vice City was the best for me on the PC. A nice gangster story with the usual twists. Vice City has the best soundtrack by far, but felt more rambling to me and lacked the simplicity of the other 2 games. It also had one of the most frustrating missions I ever played as one of it's first, in a burning warehouse, that probably put me off it but after that it improves tremendiously. The first 2 GTA's look old on the vita though, but they are still fun.
    Was that the one with the moonshine? I seem to remember that being really annoying. But difficulty spikes are part and parcel of GTA games.

    I'm now very tempted to get at least one of the GTAs, even though I already have both on UMD!

    Yeah just done the moonshine mission. Took me 3 goes, and was very frustrating. Wish there was a restart mission option. I always though chinatown wars was a bit poor to be honest. Top down pretty awful mess. I might be wrong but because it was developed for the DS it kinda had to be small and crappy like that.

    Not to say it didn't have some good bits like the drug mini games ect but nah 2d gta's were always a bit of a pain and for people with rose tinted glasses.

    Bit harsh on the 2D games.

    The cop chases on the original were superb fun.

    Spent most of my time blasting the hare krishna's on the original. Shame they removed that aspect.

    OK Tomb Raider Legend or Anniversary? They both seem to be cheap atm. I seem to remember playing a TR game on the PSP but can't remember which one it was...

    The Master of Unlocking.

    Heh, just noticed Legend is 3 as well, apparently it's the worse of the two.

    Anniversary is bloody marvelous. Legend is well flaky and a very obvious port.

    I enjoyed it when I was about 14/15. Got it again but not had a chance to play it lately.

    What's your thoughts on Heroes Reborn? Read my TV musings here.

    I'm tempted by Fear Effect 1/2 as well. Never played 'em before...

    Edit: EG's Fear Effect 2 review suggests it's not worth bothering with...

    Finished Everybody's Tennis the other day - beat everyone, unlocked everything, etc. Plays a nice game, but boy is it easy - didn't lose a game until the second last boss (that's about 100+ games in). Made me pine for Mario Tennis on the GB, now that was a quality portable tennis game.

    Finally completed FFIV. Such a good game and way better than I remembered. A bit annoying how rock hard it is at the end though! Entered the end game at around 15 hours (perfect length for an RPG) but ended up completing it at 25 hours because I was levelling up. I've still got the extra stories to do but will come back to them. Highly recommended.

    Interesting. Fwiw, I liked fe2 back in the day. I would have rated it at least a 7. I did get the first FF from PSN, but am still to play it.

    Edit: ah, old post. Just ignore me.

    Just replaying Ghost of Sparta on God mode (yes I'm awesome) with some top notch headphones, what an utterly fabulous game.
