That'd be cool, kinda like a side competition for the upcoming podcast. I usually play Survival, which I don't think many people will have as it's a separate DLC, but I'm always up for replaying the arcade mode anyway.

...Yo, I heard Resogun? And highscore-chasing? Sign me up or something. :lol:
Go on then, on Vita though!

EDIT: Dammit it was PS+ wasn't it. I can't play till the end of the month now :(
Dude - it's £2.50 right now in the sale.

...I'm almost annoyed I can't buy it again at that price

Vita on its way to me in the post :D Excited to have a full complement of current portable consoles in my life now. And maybe finally play a Persona game!

OK, so an observation that I haven't seen mentioned often among the various bits of praise that people give the Vita: Games are so cheap digitally! I can't believe the disparity between physical and digital here. I've gotten used to prices being either about the same (Nintendo) or drastically more expensive digitally compared to second hand unless there's a deep sale (Xbox, PS4)

Yet on Vita the standard price for P4G is £7! When it's £20 in CeX! I know the console is near the end of it's life and that skews things a bit, but this still seems like a mad way around compared to my usual expectations.

What a wonderful surprise. I'd better get a decent sized memory card :D

Absolutely. I have a hell of a lot of digital Vita games - P4G itself has been £3.99 in sales (I have that physically though it’s too precious)! I just picked up Gravity Rush for £3.99 in the latest sale, and just two posts ago I highlighted Resogun is a disgusting £2.50 - there is a lot bargain wise to be had and compared to say the 3DS store it’s night and day. Tearaway is £3.99 right now... long live the Vita.

The one headache you may have is the memory cards - I paid £65 for a 64gb card which is obscene in comparison to SD cards but at least prices are low.

Indeed, but if I take it as a one-time investment in order to access ridiculously cheap prices, it's a little easier to stomach! I've just gone for a 16GB as I believe that will cover me. I'm not one for hopping around different games simultaneously, and apart from Persona most of the other games I have my eye on are fairly small.

I gave myself an initial spending limit of £30 to get me through the rest of the year with my new handheld. I don't think that should be a problem, as I now have:

- Persona 4 Golden
- Tearaway
- Odin Sphere Leifthrasir
- Papers, Please
- Broken Age
- Severed

...to play through, plus several PS4 games I never got around to that have Cross-Buy: The Tomb Raider and Hitman GO games, Volume, Burly Men at Sea, Resogun, Hohokum, Unfinished Swan, Sound Shapes, Hue, Sky Force Anniversary, Child of Light, Fez, Grim Fandango's remaster and Oddworld: New n' Tasty.

I feel this console was money very, very well spent. Looking forward to some upcoming commutes now!

That's a pretty awesome library you have there already! Not a bad game in that lot.

Does anyone know of a way to make the PS4 region free (for movies, not games)? I have a bunch of Region 1 (USA) DVDs that aren't available to stream anywhere, which I've bought over the years of owning a region free DVD player. Now I only have my PS4 as a media playback machine I find I can't watch them any more.

I know there used to be codes etc you could use on DVD players to unlock the region, just wondered if anyone knew of a similar trick for consoles? It's irritating the machine isn't totally region free in this day and age really.

You can't make the PS4 region free with physical movie discs, as far as I know.
