It would be nice that when you make corrections or change things you mention them instead of silently editing them. The tone of the header and who composed the majority of Chrono Trigger was different when I read this article earlier.

I really feel that, were the PS4 not such a massive success, Sony would have put a little more support into the Vita, similar to what they did with the PSP when the PS3 kind of farted out of the gate. It was a well-designed system but it wasn't powerful enough to pull off titles like Uncharted, WipeOut, Assassins Creed, etc. Almost, but not quite.

@ImNotARobot I had so many graphical and performance hitches in Super Mario Bros 3 (one of the only NES games I have any interest in replaying) that I gave up as it was giving me a headache. I can't believe how dreadful the emulation is and how nobody else is commenting on this.

the classic games aspect could be improved with an expanding library, eventually expanding into the SNES and N64 eras.

"Best known for his work scoring the Final Fantasy series, Uematsu also composed the scores for games such as Chrono Trigger..."

No, he didn't. Yasunori Mitsuda did. Uematsu assisted with some pieces when Mitsuda fell ill.

Both of them geniuses, of course. Speedy recovery, Uematsu.

I have a Vizio P series that does 1080/120 and 4k/60. UHD/Deep Color needs to be enabled in order to add custom resolutions. I have 1440, 1620, 1728, and 1800 res setup. I did it with my screen res as 4k as doing from 1080 will upscale and blur the image.

What brand and model tv do you have?

@Bander I remember when they used to do really fantastic events back in 4th gen, like you said they really felt like you'd gone the extra mile for them (often times because you *had* gone several extra miles).

My favourite event was arguably for one of the worst event pokemon; a Lv100 Regiggas for Platinum. They tied all the downloads in with events across the UK throughout the summer; festivals, air shows, etc. Me and my friends went to Weymouth where they had a massive Pokemon tent on the beach to coincide with Weymouth Carnival. Was a really good idea and a great day out.

I can understand why they don't do stuff like that anymore, but I definitely mourn it.

I wish Uematsu-san enjoyable time off with his family, cycling and drinking good beer. His music has made a huge impact on my life -- the music of the FF series (especially IV, VI, VII) was the soundtrack of my childhood.

Those that think of him primarily as a classical composer, don't forget that some of those pieces are hard rock/metal tunes, and if you haven't checked out his metal band "The Black Mages" -- do!

@nobloodyname Yeah. Laughing at Trump is pretty much a standard thing by this point (That or go insane). But, I highly doubt that a site like eurogamer would ever publish an article like this mocking a woman's private parts. eurogamer has become the equivalent of the daily mail, except staffed by ridiculous hipster cliches instead of overinflated old men. The weirdest part of it all is, that you can tell from the tone of eg's articles that the bloggers who write the shit really do think they are morally superior. Sad.

Nintendo’s fumbling of the Virtual Console throughout the years is one my biggest gaming disappointments. This article calls their recent offering of NES games “generous and varied” which I find laughable. Nothing generous about it.

Nintendo is making a killing off of their mini retro consoles, let’s not pretend the absence of a Virtual Console on Switch isn’t directly related to that. There won’t be any N64 or Gameboy games on Switch until Nintendo has made their coin off of those consoles’ mini iterations. I find it hilarious that Nintendo signed off on the use of their Wii games for a Chinese tablet but not their own. My dream of being able to play Mario 64, Sunshine and the Galaxy games all on one portable device are feeling more like a delusion with each passing day.

@taorhtpeeD Well you can in the UK. Standard price is in fact around £80/€90 for a used one (which is all there is to buy). Seriously, you can even get half a dozen games with it if you bid around.

No point talking about new ones because they haven't been in general availability for some time without importing/paying inflated prices for Japanese units. Also why discredit Vita prices for second hand while quoting €99 for a PSP?

Actually, your original post is nonsense anyway, since it came out two days before xmas in Japan 97 but it was May 98 before it was released in the west. Dual Shock was made the default controller in August 98 replacing the previous "Value Pack".

Out of the two, ray tracing and DLSS, DLSS is the more interesting one to watch for, ray tracing can be a great tech but I don't see it getting adopted on mass only consoles can do it effectivelly and for that to happen, AMD hardware will have to do it before the next gen of consoles hit the market, otherwise we could be waiting years before ray tracing really gets any real use.

I also suspect AMD is already working on it's own DLSS for the next gen of consoles and PC gpu's.

In any case, we'll have to wait and see how well all this works, but at the price they are asking for, ray tracing is kind of pointless with this gen of cards because of the adoption rate whereas DLSS could get supported much easier.

So if we really want ray tracing any time soon then AMD really need it's own amswer to it and in time for the next gen of consoles otherwise very few games will use it whereas if consoles support it, most games will take advantage of it.

The real problem I'm finding with a lot of this tech is that it's too tied down to Nvidia hardware and higher end hardware at that, we've seen from the past how adoption rate even after years is very slow because of that so I wouldn't get our hopes up on any of this tech unless AMD can deliver something like it for the next gen of consoles.

Here's my wish-list. I pre-ordered a unit in hopes that Sony listens to their customers and releases the best possible collection of games. I'm a little worried since the 5 they announced included Jumping Flash and Wild Arms... I could care less about those. Let's hope the console is compatible with the PS4 Dual Shock as well since using USB. I will be canceling my pre-order if the collection stinks.

Here's my wish list for the remaining spots:

Metal Gear Solid
Castlevania Symphony of the night
Gran Turismo 2
Mortal Kombat Trilogy
Chrono Cross
Crash Team Racing
Crash Bandicoot
Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2
Grandia
Resident Evil 2
Silent Hill
Street Fighter Alpha 3
Tomb Raider
Twisted Metal
Mega Man Legends

Honorable mention: Wipeout, Lunar, Legacy of Kain, Rayman, and Spyro the Dragon

Great machine and I definitely got my money’s worth out of it, even with having bought a 32GB memory card on top of the price of the console.

But... I just don’t play it as often as I used to, mainly down to not really playing games on the go like I used to a decade ago. Now, I’m on my iPhone instead (And most likely not actually playing games) and the Vita actually gets more use as an alternative to the PS4 when the main tv is in use by my wife or kids.

Sad to see it reach the end of its life, but I’m also comforted by the fact I’ve got a load of great PS+ games in my backlog of shame to keep me playing for a few more years at least.

I'd have to agree that comparatively, it's not the best online service out there. But then comparatively it's considerably cheaper. From a business point of view, Nintendo have been quite upfront that the online service will be free until the have a more solid platform in place. I know from playing splatoon in the past few months that there are a fair few disconnections that kick you out while waiting for a game to start. So at the least I'd hope to see that fixed.

I don't have a problem with them charging for an online service as they are a business providing the backend for said online service at their expense so it's perfectly fair for them to charge for that facility. That's why the other consoles do it. But my biggest issue with it is the crappy voice comms facilities. Using a separate mobile or tablet to talk to people is just clunky and nasty. Make something that plugs into the pro controller. I get that the joy cons are not good for a Microsoft like headset bit the pro controller is. Or even better, just my a cordless Bluetooth headset that works with it when docked and can be connected to the USB-c port when in handheld that also recharges it at the same time or just powers it like a regular plug in headset.

Moaning aside, hopefully the "bonus content" and the NES library will grow quickly and I seriously hope the online play will be solid and stable.

It's amazing how much Switch online has been downgraded since Wii U.

In many ways Wii U online featured service as good as Xbox Live, Miiverse added additional fun, throw in Web calling people if you could be bothered and it was excellently executed - No doubt due to its Origin core.

Nintendo will regret choosing weaker Tegra X1 hardware than Wii U. The fact is the Wii U wasn't even breaking a sweat and could handle VOIP unlike Switch that doesn't have the power to do it.

@jabberwocky The system was aimed at mobile gaming. It, like the PSP before it, the DS and the 3DS had the suspend feature which let you pause your game and instantly return to the spot you left off. The only game modes that didn't support this were online PVP for obvious reasons.
That's how I tackled Uncharted:Golden Abyss, Killzone Mercenary, AC:Liberation...

I hope he fully recovers. While I’ve enjoyed other game soundtracks, his was the first that I thought transcended the genre and deserved to be heard in concert halls. And it has been!
Even if he never scores another video game, I hope the rest does his body well.
