Almost tempted to get a Vita for this even though I already have the game for my 360. Definitely one of the most underrated gems of this generation.

Hopefully I can hold out until the (true) sequel gets released later this year.

it's a port of Earth Defense Force 2017-- which was completely kickass and amazing. it's some of the most fun i've had in a co-op game this gen. Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon was pretty meh though.

am i getting it? hell yes i'm getting it. i won't have anybody to co-op with but it still looks awesome.

Damn that looks buggy. 
 
Okay shitty jokes aside I love EDF. If I had a Vita I would totally buy this.

I'm definitively getting it, my first "real" EDF game after Insect Armageddon was a bit of a let down. Though given I have a Vita backlog, I'll have to decide whether it will be a day one purchase.

@AjayRaz: If that is the case I'll probably get it but not at launch. I have enough games in my backlog and school starting up again I don't need another game I won't get to for months :P

Depends on the price, seeing that the 360 version original dropped at $29.99, I can't see them charging more than $20 for this. If they do, I'll wait for a sale.

There are a lot of weird expectations for Vita pricing - probably partially related equally to "$40 is the default price for Vita digital games; this is what we think you should pay for Day 1 Digital Releases™" as well as to "this isn't really going to sell that well on this platform in this territory, might as not worry about how we price it."

That said, I will probably pick it up if/when PS+ discounts it.

I think you're spot on with that. And I will also be willing to buy this once it goes cheaper.

I wasn't terribly happy with the price, but given the dearth of Vita games I went for it. Pretty great so far! I played a decent amount of the 360 version several years back and this port is pretty well done. The whole game seems a bit smoother and it controls nicely. Levels are just long enough to make it a killer pick-up-and-play game.

Also, it's super sweet to watch a horde of ants stiffly spin off into the distance after loosing a few rockets in their direction. Mindless, but fun.

I love me some EDF. Even had fun with IA, but I can't justify 40$ on this one. I'll wait for the price drop or sale.

The last one wasn't made by Sandlot. This is a port of 2017.

And I would totally get it if I had a VITA
