Anyone know of any UK mobile networks that do a SIM-only data deal that includes access to public Wi-Fi? From what I can see 3 do a data SIM for ?7.50 per month but doesn't include Wi-Fi. O2 don't seem to do a data only SIM for anything but the iPad. :/

So BOT, I will admit one of my main concerns about the Vita is the back touch controls, and I do hear a few gripes about them, so I am curious to see how they play out. I am assuming I will eventually figure out a way to hold it where it is not even an issue, but I would be lying if I said I did not feel it could potentially be an issue at first.

Even after messing around with the system for a few days, I'm still unsure about how the back panel is going to play out over the long run. Admittedly, I haven't been playing any games that require that back panel, but I have been putting my fingers on the panel just out of instinct. It's hard to train myself to use those little divots that they want you to use. I wonder if developers can implement algorithms to differentiate between idle holding and actual touch gestures (similar to what the MacBook Air/Pro seems to do with its trackpad). I suppose that we'll have to see with time.

And damn, that Mortal Kombat trailer looks awesome. Mortal Kombat on the PS3 is hands down my favourite fighting game of this console generation, and I never thought that I would be saying that. Such an awesome game to play with others, even if they aren't fighting game aficionados. I haven't committed to picking up the Vita version yet, but I'm very, very tempted.

Also, opinions on this option as a case? Is even cheaper than the ?14.99 one I have on preorder just now

Truly cannot wait to play Rayman, especially since I missed it's initial release. Once I get through that initial few days of checking various games out, it is the game I plan on beating first I believe. Unless Uncharted really draws me away, which it very well may.

And not my thing this case. It is more like a man purse IMO. :laugh:

With that said, it seems really practical, just not sure I would use one personally, and if I did I would without a doubt put it in my laptop bag. So yeah thinking of it that way, it is a nice case. (Y)

Yeah, that would be nice if that can happen with the back touch screen. Definitely.

And MK looks pretty damn sick on the Vita, so if you were a fan of it, seems like it would be a good purchase.

I deliberately avoided rayman on console so I could get it on VIta. It's supposed to play really well. You can also do this cool thing where you can use the touch screen to zoom in and see the art/graphics in better detail.

It looks like a game almost invented for a handheld.

A-Men is a new launch title for the Vita. Previously known as something else (can't remember).

True gaming is reborn on the PlayStation Vita with the launch of A-Men, a riddle within a retro game that will satisfy your cravings for tactical play. With more than a hint of the old school style of logic, platforms and creatures, we think our new, highly addictive title is an unexpected launch in a market dominated by pump-action big titles. Created by Bloober Team and honourably inspired by retro-cult classics Lemmings and Lost Vikings, the game gives you control of up to five army characters, each with their own personalities, skills and tools, whose mission is to round up their equally endearing enemies across a series of worlds and puzzles. Highly tactical and completely addictive, the game is immediately easy to play and yet, like many classic games, it is hard to truly master. You?ll definitely need a brain for this one, folks.

Sony really needs to fix its pricing. I paid ?7 for Chinatown Wars, its just been reduced in price for IOS to 69p. That is going to be the Vitas one big failing point if developers continue to charge stupid money for games that cost far less on IOS.

Competitive pricing wouldn't hurt, but even at 69p Chinatown Wars is/was simply unplayable on the iPad for me. As much as I'd like iOS pricing, I simply couldn't see myself buying something like GTA on the iPad over the Vita regardless of price*.

A game has to control well for me to enjoy playing it from start to finish, just because I paid 69p and can load up the game and go "OMG look at how good this runs on my iPad, OMG GTA on the go on a bigscreen!", doesn't mean it's not getting put down after 30 minutes due to crap controls. Because it did :p

*Obviously within reason, I'm not going to pay anything for a game.

      Now that we're getting Windows 11 and things are starting to change up more than the past few years with Windows 10, I un-pinned the old Windows 10 thread and started this one.
       
      With the leaked build and the event coming on the 24th things are getting interesting once more.

      Sony reverses PlayStation 3 and Vita store closure decision
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe



      In April, Sony revealed that its PlayStation 3, Portable, and Vita digital stores will soon become inaccessible, as the PlayStation Store will shut down across these platforms later this summer. However, after much criticism from the community, the decision has now been rolled back, though not entirely.

      In a new announcement, Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO and president Jim Ryan plainly said the company had originally "made the wrong decision". The PlayStation Store will continue to be available across the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita devices, however, the PlayStation Portable's digital store will close as previously planned on July 2.

      Regarding how the company came to the original decision, Ryan said the following:

      Sony's quick turnaround after vigorous community feedback is a similar move to what Microsoft pulled in January, where the company had to backpedal heavily on the Xbox Live Gold price doubling measures after facing a tremendous community backlash of its own.

      "We see now that many of you are incredibly passionate about being able to continue purchasing classic games on PS3 and PS Vita for the foreseeable future, so I’m glad we were able to find a solution to continue operations," Ryan added regarding what had changed Sony's mind.

      Sony confirms PlayStation Store closure on PS3, PSP, and PS Vita
      by João Carrasqueira



      Just over a week after initial reports came in that Sony would be shutting down the PlayStation Store on some of its older consoles, the company has now confirmed exactly that. In a notice on its website, Sony says the stores on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable will shut down on July 2, while the PlayStation Vita will shut down on August 27, the exact dates mentioned in the earlier report.

      Over the weekend, some users noticed that the old web version of the PlayStation Store, which included the ability to buy games for these older platforms, is no longer accessible either. To be fair, Sony launched a new web portal for the Store in October and warned that only the platforms on that store - the PlayStation 4 and 5 - would be supported going forward, but the old version was still accessible until recently.

      Until the closure of the PlayStation Store on each of these consoles, you can still buy games for them through their own built-in stores. After the closure, though, you won't be able to buy games, movies or other video content, or in-game purchases on these platforms. You also won't be able to redeem gift cards that give you wallet funds.

      However, if you have vouchers for specific games or PlayStation Plus subscriptions, they will continue to work after these dates. You'll also still be able to re-download any content you've purchased, as well as games claimed through PlayStation Plus - as long as your subscription stays active. Should you have any funds in your wallet after the closure, you can use them on newer platforms or request to have them refunded to you.

      While the closure of the PlayStation Store on older consoles may be upsetting to some users, all of these platforms are pretty old or irrelevant. If you've been holding off on a specific purchase on these consoles, now is the time to do it.
