Sony hates the PS Vita – why?
savepng1.96MB
why does Sony hate you?.png
1050700
It was visible from the beginning, but now it's just blatant. Sony does not give a shit. If Sony wanted, they could have ordered the development and release of many great titled on PSP 2.0. With the system's power in the right hands, most games could be developed for/ported to it. Vita has enough power to handle most games that aren't TOO big or TOO long.

But Sony is not supporting the system, and I think it is a very deliberate move on their part. Is it because they fear the PS4 will fail if they won't delegate ALL resources to it? I want to know what you think (if you give a fuck to think).

Yea a format was better than their myriad of Storage Media they attempted in the run up to MP3 Device Standardization and their replacement by phones and tablets.

And really that kinda game is fine when its new to market and their competitor hasn't been out there for over twenty years with successful handhelds. Really if the VITA had used standard MicroSD Memory Cards . It would have been a much harder choice between the two handhelds.

They used CDs and DVDs with the first two Playstations, though. And for something they wanted to push, UMDs and Vita cards aren't even used with other Sony devices.

That just means they hadn't developed a "reasonable" competitor to CDs/DVDs at the time. Also, part of their reason for supporting DVDs was that it made the PS2 one of the cheapest DVD players on the market at release and so helped to sell a lot more.

The Legend of Zelda Thread is not the General Edition

So Lisa is a fantastic game and everyone should play it. It will make you feel things in your soul that you never thought you could. Also, it has a pretty great soundtrack.

Hmm, as I thought it's a shoop. Title is cribbed from the Bayonetta 2 review and such and such. Not that Polygon doesn't have serious issues with self-righteousness, and their Xenoblade 3D review is pretty meh, suffers from blog-level tone and I'm already spotting a few outright errors in it.

Ya, kind of regretting not buying a wiiU bundle with camecube controller adapter. No idea why Nintendo doesn't just make more.

As for Amiibo's... good old scalping. Knew I should have just bought Fox. All I ever wanted was some SF merch... oh well.

In any case... Melee has the exact same set up at EVO as last year so get ready for more hour long sets.

Eh, we dont have an Amiibo scalping problem here in sweden.
Guessing because they cost more here, like all toys.
149kr to 199kr is the standard.

Also no problems so far with the 3rd party gamecube adaptor.

Between two Smash Bros (fun to play, not really to watch especially with how long sets go), Killer Instinct (tryhard inbuilt hype and general awkwardness), and Tekken 7 and MKX being way too new for mainstage (clunky unfamiliarity) means this is going to be a very sleepy EVO.

>193074
Scalping in the US is pretty bad. Little Mac for instance goes for around $50 now. When Nintendo says "limited edition" they REALLY mean it. Unless it's Pikachu and Pario, almost all of the figures are being sold for far more than their MSRP.

Dragon Age Keep is out, wanna have a Dragon Age General to talk about it or the game it is creating a story choice file for? Anyone have any strong feelings about it?
I'm undecided if I'm actually gonna get Inquisition but this thing still seems pretty interesting.

I'm kind of lost on the DA2 section choices though, never played it since it was awful. Surely some of the rest of you must be in the same situation when it comes to that.

Please, that kind of political gaming is so weak, there's no need to say "You're loyal to us but don't even know it!". That kind of lame reasoning only leads to corrupt practice like what GamerGate supposedly organized to prevent. Just let the handful of people who care support to the degree they want to. Gamergate is an arbitrary affiliation and can easily get replaced if something filling its purpose is needed again.

Oh man, I remember way back when the Saxxy Awards started, when it revolved around the Replay function.

I used the same concept, except it was called "A day in Team Fortress 2: in 1 minute"; since I was alone on this, I went on a server (goldrush) and recorded everything and started editing. It didn't also help that I didn't have that much experience on editing videos, so I had to work only with what I knew and what I learned on the run (which were a lot of interesting things).
