    • HaunterZeroX says:

      I hear you man. The most disappointing thing for me is that, over half of those games mentioned during the show would be only released in Japan.

  3. Yes says:

    i got the ps vita beta like a day before i updated my vhbl to 1.81. i was already planning on updating anyways so its no way related with sony and stuff…why is japan getting all the love also? isnt sony made like in freakin america or somethin? and WHEN or HOW can i mod my vita buttons or templates to match those of the red and blue vita? should i wait? i want to change my vita skin completely so if anyone knows thanks alot…sorry for bragging!

    • UE says:

      Sony has always been japanese… always always always… hell they themselves as a company put a lot into that japanese origin part and focus very strongly on keeping it predominantly controlled by japan too.

      Also you can mod the ps vita right now with new buttons, you just have to take it apart and void the warranty… something I don’t plan on doing till my 3 years are up.

      • Norml says:

        Can’t you tell by how they run business? The reason why we the consumer are getting screwed left and right.

        • wololo says:

          This is sad because Japanese companies used to be an example of good customer care/ customer service. Slowly but surely, American and European companies are getting better than them at that. Sony has lost my trust as a company that cares about their customers a long time ago. Their customer service was nice but definitely useless every time I contacted them in the past 5 years.

        • Yes says:

          How are the consumers getting screwed left and right?

  11. naki says:

    Blue and red vita looks awesome! wish I had more money to spare lol

    God eater 2 on PS Vita… It sure sounds good but I hope thay don’t have too much exclusive content on it and kind of throw away the PSP version.

  12. DarkZenRitual says:

    Red Decalgirl skin…Close enough,

    SF X Tekken, LBP, Fifa 13 , Jetset radio and more and more…needz money now!

    • jamesssss says:

      Be careful when you remove the Decal Girl skins! the cheap plastic effect on the top and side of the Vita as well as in the finger grips you see in the middle of the rear touch screen comes straight off!!

      I had my Vita trashed by this, the rubber effect is really cheap and even though I removed the Decal Girl skin slowly and heated it slightly as suggested by Decal Girl my Vita’s look was ruined.

      Sony, not interested that the Vita build quality is so crap that this happened in the first place! Amazon, no problem and simply replaced it next day.

      Learned my lesson, never install a skin on that rubber effect plastic! I just have a skin on the front and rear touchscreen which looks great, then a silicon case to protect the sides.

  13. Foleyfactor says:

    Damn, that blue one is nice!

  14. Teleus says:

    What do we think the chances are of a Muramasa release in the west? They did it on Gamecube!

  15. jamesssss says:

    I never understand with this translation stuff, Microsoft showed with the Xbox 360 how to do it.

    Basically from a Microsoft dev article they said that they do all text translations for all languages simultaneously, this brings the workload down as you can be play testing the game as you go along bit by bit. Why do the Japanese build the whole game and then go back and translate it if they see the need? this must make the process so much longer and harder.

    I would be happy if they just translated the text, not really bothered about the voices as I have a basic understanding of Japanese and the Japanese voice actors always sound so much better!

    Even better… why don’t they design games with language files that they release to the community, that way if the manufacturer doesn’t want to localise somebody in the community can translate the text. Maybe once done you could load it back on a USB stick back in to the game. One of the reasons I like having a hacked console is so that I can get JRPG translations.

  16. KuroRyuu913 says:

    All I see is Kingdom Hearts 1.5, Monster Hunters 4, Vahalla Knights 3, God Eater 2, Muromasa Vita, and PS+ on vita (not that i will be using that anytime soon till i NEED to update YAY VHBL)
    New PS3? No thanks, Maybe if mine breaks sure, but no, New PS Vita colors? Not worth the money. Anything coming to america? No? well then…..

  17. CycloneFox says:

    As you wll notice from the following post, I’m a big Sony hardware and software fan. But I also have a 360 and a Wii and I will buy a Wii U as soon as Monolith Softs title or maybe an HD Zelda releases.

    I must saym that this year, Sony showed so much stuff, that nobody needs to be disappointed or anything, at all. Sony had the best show on E3 with the most new games and most exclusive stuff, while Microsoft still keeps disappointing core-gamers with Kinect-stuff and no new IPs. Sony was the only one of the big hardware-developers who showed up at gamescom and even showed alot of new stuff, especially indi-games. And showed alot of respect for the German youth protection, which is really sensitive. And now, even with Nintendo’s Wii U presenations and all those news, Sony keeps bringing so many news for the Japanese market, too.

    I’m especially interested in Muramasa: The Demon Blade. I love Vanilla Ware and hope, that this will come to the west. I loved Odin’s Sphere, but somehow missed this on the Wii. I think, that game is the perfect choice for this Handheld.

  18. Blackwolf says:

    Muramasa in Ps vita!! Awesome!!!

  19. shades says:

    Hoping God Eater 2 will be good. If it’s going to be a Monster Hunter clone like the last one just with more personality . . . that’s too bad.

  20. booler says:

    Fack, is Sony even interested in its own console?

    I beg devs and hackers and anyone who can hear me – please make a descent PSP Iso loader so I could use my own games on my vita, sinnce there was no descent games since march release for god’s sake!

  21. LooneyTunes64 says:

    Seems like there’s no ‘big’ news for the psp :(

  22. Aggie says:

    Vita is dead, i wonder why i bought it?

  23. Hobz says:

    If they can bring all those games to US or Europe, I might finally get myself a Vita.

    Maybe I should wait for a “slim” version, how long do you think it will take ? (excuse me if it’s a stupid question)

  24. BShornock says:

    A Slim Vita would be a pain in the ass, it’s already a little too small to handle without a grip. The PSP was even worse!

  25. neverthewiseone says:

    wow 3000+ games, imagine if half of them has exploits. sony can patch every week for the rest of ps vita’s life and they’ll have plenty of games left for VBHL.
