The exclusive pre-order bonus map NukeTown 2025 has gotten its very own trailer, which gives players a glimpse of the close quarters map we have grown to love. I have to admit it looks rather nice. The developer has confirmed …
Alright, dudes, for the small price of $39.99, you’re getting an almost endless amount of game for your Vita. You’re getting the PS3 version with every piece of DLC and some not so amazing touch features. The very first thing I did was turn the touch capability off. Using the front and rear touch pad for camera and movement took much longer than using the classic controls. They felt like they were thrown in for the sake of being thrown in.
That aside, this game looks super polished. Gone are the sprite-looking characters from the PS3. The Vita screen does a heck of a job showcasing what this game was meant to look like, by using smooth, detailed characters. The game looks ten times better on Vita. The sound and game play is identical to the console release, so there is not much to comment on in this regard.
With the Launch of the new 1.8 firmware your Vita has become capable of running a small handful of PlayStation one games. Luckily you won’t have to wait for your favorite title to become available on the Vita store. There is a workaround that will allow you to access more PSOne games on your shiny Vita, and the process is simple and only requires that you do not install the game on your PS3. Simply download the title you would like to transfer to your Vita via the PlayStation Store. When I say don’t install it I mean simply leave it in its “bubble” form on the PlayStation 3. Now, connect your Vita to your PS3 and run content manager. Choose to Transfer from PS3 to Vita and chose PlayStation One. That’s it. You now have a bigger list of games to play blowing away the small eight Sony listed.
Full list below of what is compatible thanks to users at NEOGAF, after the break.
The latest Vita firmware is on its way for an August 28th release, and is bringing with it a lot more then expected. The most surprising is the ability to use the Vita and it’s touch screen with your PS3 titles. The full list is below.
The new Cross-Controller feature will allow you to use PS Vita as a controller to play compatible games on PS3, such as LittleBigPlanet 2. This feature lets you take advantage of PS Vita’s rich features including the touch screen, rear touch pad, six-axis motion sensing system, and cameras.
To access the cross controller feature you need to launch the Remote Play application and then click on the Cross-Controller icon.
As many of you have requested, you will now have the option to control the home screen and some features of applications such as Videos and Music with the buttons on the PS Vita system.
