oh mg acid isn't really a metal gear game its a spin off
like pokemon snap is to pokemon

the metal gear games are
metal gear solid 1
metal gear solid 2 sons of liberty
metal gear solid 3 snake eater
metal gear solid 4 sons of the patriots
metal gear
metal gear 2 solid snake
metal gear solid portable ops
metal gear solid peace walker
metal gear solid 5
metal gear solid ground zeroes

those are the main series games
any others don't reflect the series at all
metal gear solid is a stealth action espionage series
:o That is exactly the kind of stuff I love! Can't believe that one game confused me so much! :o
So how are the graphics for the PSVita version? It might be the next game I buy.

No, I never have been able to get myself to play it, it sounds fun but as soon as I see the cards I just stop because for some reason it takes away the appeal of the game for me. I am pretty sure it isn't the cards though because I love games like Yugioh, so I guess I just expect to be able to go in and shoot/kill for myself rather than choosing a card which does it for me.
Metal Gear Solid for PSX is a game where you use stealth. Not the card game which was for PSP and it was called Acid the card game. I did not really get in to that game.
Game On!

I know dude. When I play it in public like on campus, people always say "Oh, you're playing PSP" or stuff like that. I always say it's the PS Vita and they are like what is that? And I'm like it's what came out after the PSP, it's the new portable. Nobody know what it is. I remember before the 3DS launch Nintendo made a commercial explicitly showing what was new & different from the old 3DS and showing up close the hardware. When Vita launched Sony made a pretentious, preachy commercial that doesn't inform customers of what they are offering. As well as only showed the hardware (which looks immediately like the PSP at 1st glance) for a few seconds. They don't advertise the great games and great dual analog controls. the 3DS commercials are good and informative. Sony's commercials are just gimmicks or trying to be funny. People don't really know about the Vita is the problem. Clear information and stressing it's strong points in ads will sell more units. And also a price drop in the future will help.

its the price, the Vita is a good bit of kit, but when you can get a PS3 or an Xbox 360 chaper then a Vita, then peps are like why is a Vita so mush? Its far to much money for a hand held. I only got my Vita because it was on sale, if they dropped the price to £150 then they would sell like hot cakes.
