But to be honest, the whole game is a mystery, other than the fact that it is somewhat obviously connected to MGS. I mean, the main character looks exactly like Naked Snake. Another possibility is that Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain are just the same game, but if so, why hide The Phantom Pain's identity as a MGS game?
Thanks for the explanation

I'm totally fed up with this kind of crap, looks like there are bugs / glitches / patches /errors / ... everywhere I game nowadays.
Big Sky Infinite is free for PS+ users now.Tomorrow will have my console after as long wait.

Soul sacrifice, god eater burst 2, and killzone are enough games for whole year of 2013 to be exciting to me. I don't buy every single game that comes out. Even on my ps3. Black ops 2 is probably only ps3 game that I got in on day 1.
My point is, even there is like 10 different vita games, I won't be able to buy them all at all. So I am happy about vita games plan right now

Only for EU Plus, waiting wouldn't magically turn my US account into an European one. Paid for it and still can't even install the game.

How hard should it be for the idiots at PSN to just switch the proper Vita version file to the purchases made on PS3?

I've been reading a lot of people are having the same error with Uncharted fight for fortune (in the EU), Sony's obviously at fault somewhere.

On a more positive note really enjoying SF X Tekken personally starting to get more wins online so I must be improving. Also I didn't expect to like the Tekken characters in the game but they actually work pretty well and if anything have far more options available than my SF favourites.

Also like that the game saves replays automatically when you play online it's nice to work out where you slipped up or to see your wins again.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

It's a good game, especially on handled... I think it was smart move Capcom to release it on the vita with lots of more content. Well I still wish it didn't take half year to port it tho

This is the article that just annoyed me, it has the vita listed as the biggest gaming disapointment of 2012 because it apparently has no games and COD was bad.

Probably shouldn't let it annoy me I just keep reading things like that and I'm happy enough with the games I've bought so far even Resistance wasn't all that bad.
I hate to say it, but I agree with their conclusion. I'm not sure who is to blame, sony or the devs to be honest. Devs are playing it safe, and sony is spreading its mobile gaming franchise thin by wasting efforts on xperia and not focusing their efforts on their handheld flagship.

Um... Xperia is handled by a separate division of Sony. There's some blurring of lines between them, but they're still mostly managed separately with their own resources. Sony isn't more focused like Nintendo or Apple.

I think part of the issue is they released a good portion of the games they were working on at launch. They should have spread them out more, rather than clump them together.

I was thinking about when I bought PSP and the only reason was the GTA: Liberty City Stories and people say that Vita has no games but now I understand that it needs a GTA
