Time to go bomb Sega to hell.

They could at least bring this out to the States and then we can bomb Sega to hell...

So we're bombing either way?

I kind of figured as much.  It sucks, but if sales were really that bad then you can't blame them too much.  Blame all the people not buying PSP games...

Anyway, I will be importing.

Aren't all Final Fantasy games offshoot/spinoff games?  Versus and Type-0 are no more so than any other.

Maybe they could have, like, acknowledged the existence of Type-0 in the west...

S-E's Japanese side hasn't exactly reached the point where western gamers have forgotten them (look at how well FFXIII sold despite the criticism), but damn they sure are trying.  It's not even that they don't have games, but that they don't want to market them here.  What's the last piece of Versus or Type-0 news we've gotten that wasn't just a translation of something in the Japanese press?

Grand Knights History I'm particularly excited about because it looks pretty different from Vanillaware's usual stuff (gameplaywise, I mean).  I'm not too optimistic about its localization chances, however...

P.S.: Apologies for actually talking about video games in this thread.

team vanilla is the team that me and kay play for. do you get it yet?

NOPE

Explain?

Is it a Vanillaware fanclub? Can I join if I've never playedd a Vanillaware game?

You need to play some Vanillaware games my friend.

Actually, to be honest I've never finished a Vanillaware games.  I love their artwork, the games are beautiful, but they can get pretty darn repetitive after a while...

I don't get it...

3233  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: PlayStation Vita Announced (late 2011, $249/$299 for WiFi/3G+WiFI) + some games on: June 10, 2011, 02:20:36 AM
IGN has a playstation-centric podcast called Podcast Beyond.  I'm mentioning this because the latest episode they put up has SCE Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida on it talking about the Vita.

One interesting tidbit about the 3G option (and as far as I know this hasn't been mentioned anywhere else):  They are still working on the specifics of the data plans but there will not be a contract required and there will be multiple options including the possibility as pay-as-you-go service.  This has me actually considering the 3G version for the first time.  I don't see the Vita as a device that I will carry around everywhere so paying $30/month or whatever for 3G service would be absolutely ridiculous.  But if I'm just paying forr the amount of data I use and assuming the price is reasonable then that's something I can totally get behind.  Of course I need to see the specifics of what they are offering first.

Vita likely region free.  Eat that Nintendo.

I just wish Sega would say something so I know if I should just import it.  I will be buying the game one way or the other.  I enjoyed VC2 despite its flaws and everything I have seen of VC3 makes it look like a much better game.

This situation does add a lot of fuel to all the complaints people had when the series moved to the PSP, though.

Jeez, some people are a little too eager to hate.  This looks awesome.

I love my PSP, and I'm not really a big fan of handheld gaming.  I have never bought any console at launch in my life (generally I think it's pretty stupid...wait for the games you want), and yet I'm seriously considering getting a Vita at launch.  Especially at that price.

I still have reservations, though.  No word yet on things like battery life.

Just got my new android tablet (an Eee Pad Transformer).  Yay grown-up toys!
3239  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: June 03, 2011, 06:27:31 PM
When I saw the price, I kind of changed my mind on that idea.  Are all Japanese tales games that expensive at release?

Yes.  Actually, you can remove the 'tales' part of that question...I've paid around $90 for a regular edition PSP game before.

Part of it is that the exchange rate isn't very favorable right now, but beyond that games are just more expensive in Japan.  Games in the US are cheaper than just about anywhere else, really.

They're cheaper in the UK.

I saw this article on IGN and it seemed relevant to the discussion.  Sucks to be Australia...

Of course, that comparison had a strong western game bias.  Game prices in Japan are less standardized than they are here and they seem to charge more for their own games.  At least for well-known titles, anyway.

What da fuck indeed...maybe it's a timed thing?
