I am hoping that the video recording is something that can be toggled, as there is no way you would need that all the time.. Or at least have it processing on the second chip.

One more tidbit, via IGN: The PlayStation Network is a quiet place right now. Why? Well, the PS3 didn’t bundle a mic with the console, so lots of players never grabbed one. The PS4 will put a headset in every box so that communication is easy.

Not sure if there is a big enough following for a thread in Film folder but Sony announced plans & initial trailer for a feature length Ratchet and Clank theatrical release.  Currently set for 2015.

I've only played A Crack in Time, but that game felt like a Pixar movie. Looking forward to this for sure, especially since they've got a lot of main cast members reprising their roles for the film.

So..remember that whole streaming thing?  Yeah it turns out developers can turn it off for their games, or for certain parts of their games they don't want shared.

Fatal Frame I & II are on PSN.

$9.99 each, I wish the price was a bit a lower. Played 'em both when they were brand new.  Pretty creepy, especially playing at night with the lights off, however it seems like the PS1/PS2 era is the worst when it comes to re-visiting games.  I've spent a decent amount on old games in the last couple of years and it seems like anything from the NES/Genesis/SNES years holds up almost because you expect an 8-16 bit experience, but when you are dealing with 1 Gen removed there is this expectation that the games won't feel that off from today's standard, but it takes less than 10 minutes to realize you were wrong and get annoyed pretty quickly.

I remember only playing a demo of Fatal Frame, but I wasn't feeling it. Reading about it now, I'd probably be super into something like that these days. I replayed Resident Evil 1-3 via PSN and I thought those still hold up for the most part. Most people hate the controls, but it was never a problem for me.

Sleeping Dogs is also free for PS Plus users. I'm glad I held out on buying it.

Rockstar Games sez:

Quote
ext week, the roster of downloadable Rockstar titles in the PS2 Classics collection at PlayStation Store is set to get bigger - and grislier - with the addition of Rockstar North's dark stealth thriller Manhunt, originally released 10 years ago. Beginning on May 14th Tuesday when the PSN Store does its weekly update (Wednesday for those in Europe), you'll be able to step back into the shoes of James Earl Cash, a Death Row inmate playing that most dangerous game of kill-or-be-killed at the mercy of the maniacal Lionel Starkweather.

Manhunt will be available from PSN for $9.99 / €9.99 / £7.99 and joins Bully and Red Dead Revolver, as well as all PlayStation 2 entries in the Grand Theft Auto and Midnight Club franchises, in the PS2 Classics category of PlayStation Store.

It will also soon be joined by The Warriors

I've been looking for Rock Band 3 for PS3 for about 9 months.  My friend has a copy, but something is wrong with the disc, and the bass lines are all muted.  For whatever reason, all the Gamestops in my area are sold out, but always have it for 360.  Well, I was in a Wal-Mart today and was looking through their case of random old PS2 and PS3 games.  There before me was 2 copies of RB3!!!!!!  I asked an associate if I could get a price on it.  So, she came over with a scanner and it said it was $19.99.  So,  said I would go ahead and pick it up.  While she was ringing me up, she said that I was the first person to buy something out of that case in quite a while, and she was going to give me a discount (SCORE!).  I ended up getting it for $9.99!!!!!!!!!

I'm playing the God of War: Ghost of Sparta PS3 port. It's great and I hope more PSP games get ports to maximize exposure. I bought a PSP specifically for Metal Gear Peacewalker, but enjoyed it way more when it was ported a couple of years later. I'd definitely replay FF7: Crisis Core, and Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep if they were given the PS3 treatment. Never even finished Birth By Sleep, and I have no idea where my PSP is. Seems like no one paid attention to the new Parasite Eve because of it just being on PSP as well. Shame.

I don't know much about Vita as I have very little interest in handheld gaming, so perhaps all of these games are getting the Vita treatment instead. But damn, I just want 'em on my PS3.

Dumbest $250 I've ever spent. The best part is how Sony seems surprised by the Vita failing. We put out an expensive piece of hardware that requires another expensive piece to work and has little to no games, why aren't these fucking people buying it?

I bought the full 3G version, and it's sat on my shelf for the past several months.  One of the main things that killed it was expensive as shit proprietary memory cards.  32GB costs $99.99?  Fuck you, Sony!

I do like being able to play FF7 on the go though.

Apparently it has been clarified that these are worst case scenario projections. http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/192195/Sony_tells_us_whats_going_on_with_the_PlayStation_Vita.php

Either way, as much as I don't see Sony as a player in handheld systems, I can't see them ditching the Vita regardless since remote play for every game on PS4 has been a huge talking point for that console since it was announced.

My main reason for not leaping and getting the Vita is due to still feeling the sting of my £200 PSP which I imported from Japan when they initially released the white one. Only reason I really still have it is because of crisis core and kingdom hearts.

And you can't play either of those games on a Vita because they never got a digital release and are UMD only. Which is the case for like 90% of my PSP collection. Rabble rabble rabble.

I just received my official Playstation Credit Card in the mail.  The interest rate is a little on the ridiculous side, but no annual fee and they give you a free year of PS+ and $50 PSN credit after your first purchase.  Also earns Sony Rewards points on every purchase.  Pretty crazy deal if you plan on paying off your balance every month and avoiding the interest charges.

I am still blown away that Chase declined my application for an Amazon.ca Visa. I have zero debt, amazing credit from my understanding of my last credit check and the only credit card I have is an RBC Visa with a near $20K credit limit (something I would never even come close to approaching or needing). Like, what the fuck, Chase?

I had read a lot of people saying they got rejected and it was really tough to get approved, but I didn't have an issue with it at all.  Kind of strange based on the other experiences I was reading because I have a pretty limited credit history (car loan since last April, started paying off student loans last May, got my first credit card in July).  I figured it was worth a shot even though I was expecting to be rejected.  Instead I got instantly approved with a $5,000 limit.  My other card is also from Capital One (which may help here), but it only has a $750 limit.

http://www.joystiq.com/2013/05/29/rumor-sony-making-remote-play-mandatory-with-ps4/

Quote
If a new report is to be believed, it looks like nearly all PlayStation 4 games will be required to support Remote Play on the PS Vita. The rumor comes courtesy of "a trusted PlayStation 4 developer source" to Eurogamer, who states Sony is mandating Remote Play on all PS4 games that don't require the PS4 Eye camera.

Sony certainly made a big deal of PS4's Gaikai-fueled Remote Play during the console's announcement event. Today's report also jives with previous statements from Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida. Back in February, Yoshida told Engadget that Sony was requesting all developers test their games on Remote Play before submitting them for certification, though he made no mention of a mandate.

Of course, the Vita doesn't have as many inputs as a DualShock 4, though Yoshida noted that developers can create custom control schemes for the Vita that make use of contextual buttons on its touch screen.

Quote
Update: Yoshida has confirmed on Twitter that all PS4 games will indeed feature PS Vita Remote Play. Says Yoshida, "Yes, it's true unless the game requires specific hardware like the camera. It will be great to play PS4 games on PS Vita."

Pretty much. Though I am glad it will have some kind of use outside of what I had originally bought it for. Right now I'm just using it for classic games and whatnot. I only own like 2 actual Vita games (MK & SFxTK). =\

For those of you who liked Tales of Symphonia and its sequel New Dawn, the game is being re-released for the PlayStation 3 as a combined package called Tales of Symphonia: Unisonant Pack. New cut scenes added, new costumes and other things will be included.

Why did I mention this? Because its not a Japan only like you'd normally think. It'll be coming to the rest of us in 2014.

If there was a portable version, it would be 2 different games at full prices. And frankly, I'm hoping New Dawn actually has a full overworld and gets a big upgrade considering they are upgrading everything else.

Not to say I'm not with you though. ToS + portable? Mine. So simply mine.

...though I need to buy a new Vita since mine broke and I missed the deadline to get it fixed for free.

Random question that popped in my head after seeing "Tales of Symphonia".

Does anyone remember a game for I think the Playstation 1, might have been a PS2 launch title where you in control of a symphonic band? It was an anime looking conductor, and it was a rhythm based game where you had to hit Square/X/Triangle/O in time with the music. I remember a demo but I can't for the life of me remember what it was called?

Speaking of music games. Does anyone remember the time traveling music fantasy game, on I think the PS2(not sure on that), that required the use of a really wonky controller?

Because after fazzle brought that up, it was the first game I could think of. But a lot of it eludes me. I think it was one of the earlier PS2 games. Anyone remember this game?

Ephemeral Fantasia is the name fo the game! Finally came to me. Interesting game that had a lot of neat concepts, but was woefully executed. The team who made it was way too ambitious with it. The game is quite difficult because there was no way to tell what you needed to do to trigger the next scene or which person you needed.

This is one of those games I would like to see remade, because I liked the concept of it. It was the limited edition that game with the musical-like controller. Not sure why that game was the one that came to mind though...

Yay: After talking with Smues and realizing Pinball Arcade was free for PSN+ members, and deciding this bankruptcy court issue with getting DLC to the Xbox version is going nowhere, I grabbed the big DLC pack and the game.

Boo:  PSN Store selling unupdated versions of games that require updates out of the downloadable box. Not a huge deal for minor patchwork, but Pinball Arcade needed an almost half gig update (maybe it was just trying to transfer the DLC since that is a very large patch size) and it keeps stalling at 79%, making the game unplayable.

In this case it said it was mandatory. Actually, I was playing The Show earlier today and it also needed to update and apparently it failed (my download status showed an incomplete download of 97% with a "!" on it) without an issue but this PA won't start-up without it.
