2611  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: PlayStation Vita Announced (Feb 22, $249/$299 for WiFi/3G+WiFI) + some games on: December 08, 2011, 05:35:15 PM
To be honest, while I laughed at this at first... for the angle I'm thinking is most likely a problem (people sharing a system, not people juggling accounts) this is actually a great thing. It means siblings or housemates can just get a card for themselves (perhaps the 4 GB one?) and trade the system around that way until they get their own, then use that card on their new system as if nothing happened. No weeding out saves, figuring out how to copy profiles (which would probably be simple anyway), just stick your old card in the new system.

The problem with that scenario is that I recall reading that games are made to use either their own card or the memory card for saves, but never both.  So if a game saves to its own card there is no convenient way to distinguish the two users.

Really, everything about these memory cards so far seems like a confusing mess.  I can understand Sony's concerns about piracy given what happened to the PSP, but it has gotten ridiculous.

Well that isn't how I expected it to work...

Having to buy two overpriced memory cards is better than having to reformat your system every time you swap accounts, I guess...

Famitsu gave FF13 a 39/40... 

According to Andriasang it's 40/40, actually.  Where did you get that number?

You're thinking FFXIII-2. There was quite a bit of commotion over the 39/40 for FFXIII, though with the way Famitsu is now that actually seemed to mean something unlike, say, 8.8 for Zelda TP.

D'oh...need to work on my reading comprehension.

But yeah, anyway, apparently Famitsu gave FFXIII-2 a 40/40.

after thinking it over i think this is the system seller i've been waiting for. i'm getting a wii instead of a wii u cause there are some game cube games i wanna play too, namely skies of arcadia.

Nintendo has already started removing Gamecube support from the Wii.  Be very careful about which model you get.

So this story has been making rounds: Vita account restrictions.

This really needs to be clarified.  Of course being limited to only one account on a Vita isn't too surprising (though it is annoying) since the PSP was the same way, but it's not clear at all what that means for account activations.  My PSP may be limited to one account for going on the store by itself but I can use a PS3 to manage my content and change the activation of the PSP withoout doing anything to the account info stored on it.  Confusing, I know.  This whole business about having to restore the Vita to factory defaults seems awfully excessive, though.

I know personally this is a pretty big deal for me.  Something like a third of my PSP games are Japanese imports (though that can at least partially be attributed to its limited library here...).  Though this shouldn't affect playing imported games on memory cards it's still a pain in the ass.  Guess we'll find out soon enough since the Japanese launch is almost here...

I don't mind a well placed QTE but having "CINEMATIC GAMEPLAY" in the corner of the screen ruins it. Do they think we're idiots and can't figure it out? Probably.

Er, wasn't that just part of the trailer?  I don't think the actual game does that...at least I don't remember seeing anything like that when I played it at PAX (which had a QTE segment).

Kevadu, this is seriously the most disturbing thing you've seen on the internet?

When did I ever say that?  Weird and disturbing are two totally different things.

even then his point still stands

you are not an internets veteran like us

There are copious examples I could use to prove otherwise but I realized that this is one of those things where winning means losing...

Am I the only one that thinks this is actually pretty tame?

It's a game about dating birds.  Birds that apparently go to a school with completely normal human-sized facilities.  It's not a question of being tame or not, it's just weird.

You cannot unsee this:

I thought I had seen everything.  Then I saw this.

Um, according to IGN:

One critical note to make here - the game is currently slated to come to the United States only.

What. The. Fuck.

Between this and the whole GS-exclusivity crap it seems to me that NoA is doing their best to not actually push this game as much as possible.  Which is an odds strategy to take...
