http://gematsu.com/2013/02/sony-japan-hosting-ps-vita-news-broadcast-tomorrow

5:00 pm japan time. That's like 6:00 am tomorrow, 3:00 am for the west coast. Maybe it's the price cut or an hour of kaz hirai just giving the finger to the vita.

Good to hear them doing this. Hopefully that means nothing Vita related will be talked about during the PS4 announcement.

#4 Edited by Funkydupe (3311 posts) -

I like big news. :)

#5 Edited by JZ (2125 posts) -

Pretty sure that's the whole point of doing now and not in three days.

#6 Posted by TruthTellah (8850 posts) -

I could definitely believe watching a hour of Hirai flipping off the Vita. I highly await seeing him finally being honest about their treatment of it.

#7 Edited by JZ (2125 posts) -

Like just the one finger for a little while then double middle fingers for the 2nd half.

#8 Edited by Morbid_Coffee (955 posts) -

Kaz Hirai is going to take a note from Reggie and come out on stage, reach in his pocket, and pull out a Vita.

Then he's going to put the Vita back in his pocket, and show everybody what's inside his pocket. It's empty now. But then he reaches back inside and pulls out a full sized PS4. Everybody's mind will be blown.

End livestream while reminding everybody to tune in on Wednesday.

"He's taking the controller out of your hand, and putting it in your mouth."

Give that news man from 20 years ago a raise.

Screw you guys, I just want some fucking games announced!!! Come on Sony, don't let me down for the... uh... 8th time?

that would be gangsta as fuck. but only if he crip-walks off stage. i'd also take a moonwalk.

you know, something like this.

It's a giant picture of kaz hirai's balls.

PS4 motherfucker!!

Mr. Kaz Hirai arriving.

The music is the best as well. :)

#14 Posted by Pr1mus (3875 posts) -

What if the big news is that they're discontinuing it?

#15 Posted by Zornack (194 posts) -

Isn't 5:00 PM Japan time 12:00 AM PST?

#16 Posted by Funkydupe (3311 posts) -

@pr1mus: What if? I'd be thrilled!

#17 Posted by Morbid_Coffee (955 posts) -

@pr1mus: They might as well. Nintendo scooping up Monster Hunter for the 3DS all but killed any momentum the Vita had.

#18 Posted by Bourbon_Warrior (4523 posts) -

Don't have a Vita but a "HD" version of FFX and XII could really loosen my pockets.

#19 Posted by Blu3V3nom07 (4203 posts) -

They'll release an update where you can use the Vita as a mirror in GT5.

#20 Posted by JZ (2125 posts) -

It's noon in japan right now

#21 Edited by Sooty (8082 posts) -

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is honestly all my Vita needs. I fucking love picking that up and doing a bunch of combos then putting it back to sleep. If only I could plug in my arcade stick.

It's also better than the PS3 version because it doesn't drop frames all the fucking time.

Still I hope the Vita gets some more support. So happy it's region free unlike that 3DS clusterfuck of a situation I'm going to dig myself into. (having to choose either buying a European 3DS and missing Japanese games or the other way around)

#22 Posted by rachelepithet (1391 posts) -

@Funkydupe it's not the size of the news, it's the motion-control in the ocean.

#24 Posted by TheMathlete (323 posts) -

I've been contemplating picking up either a vita or a 3DS. I'm waiting to see what comes out of this press conference (or whatever they're calling this vita thing) before I make my decision.

#25 Posted by Wraith1 (561 posts) -

I'm hoping for a price drop

#26 Posted by Aegon (5545 posts) -

Isn't this happening in an hour and a half?

The Vita handles fighting games really well. I haven't played UMVC but MK Vita and PlayStation All-Stars both feel way better on Vita then they do on consoles.

I DO have a vita, and I can say that this is all I really want, too.

Sad to say it - all I've done with my Vita has been to play PSP, PS1 games and Persona 4 Golden (which made it all worth it and then some).

For some reason all I need from this system is good games - even if those games are just updates of ones from the early 2000s. Heck, I think it's a fantastic system for RPGs in general, so maybe that's why I don't mind the lack of new IPs.

BUT if there is anything exciting and new shown in the event (32 mins now), I'd be coloured impressed.

EDIT: T Minus 31 mins,

If they finally drop the price to something reasonable, say $179, I'll pick one up. I have a bunch of free games for it from PS+ and I'm dying to play Persona 4 Golden. They also better drop the prices on the memory cards. Paying $100 for a 32GB stick should be illegal.

Looks like there's a price drop - ¥19,980 for both 3G and Wifi

#32 Edited by Slax (913 posts) -

All this stuff seems to apply on 2-28-12, although I may be wrong my Japanese is a bit rusty.

By that I mean, I know zero Japanese.

Evidently this guy https://twitter.com/cvxfreak is live tweeting a translation.

#33 Posted by DarthOrange (3858 posts) -

I am so lost! I can't understand anything! I'm just enjoying the chat.

The chat is just full of fanboys shitting on Nintendo - I thought fanboys didn't exist in modern times!

#36 Posted by Slax (913 posts) -

So based on some information that Greg Miller posted on Twitter, it sounds like most of the information that applies to US/EU Vita owners will happen on Wednesday with the rest of that announcement? Seems like that could make some sense as this is all Japan focused (obviously).

Dope silver Vita showing Phantasy Star Online 2:

Out 28-02-13 in Japan packaged with Phantasy Star 2

The dpad is really good, UMvC3 on PS3 (360 is fine) just constantly drops frames whenever you call an assist or do any high density projectile, friggin annoying in a game that is usually locked at 60.

I hope we get that Silver Vita. It looks great.

#40 Posted by iceman228433 (616 posts) -

I want phantasy star 2 so bad on my vita.

#41 Posted by DarthOrange (3858 posts) -

I would buy a red or blue vita in a heart beat if they came to the US.

#42 Edited by Dunchad (486 posts) -

That Soul Sacrifice Vita looked really nice. But none of the games, so far, have grabbed me.

EDIT: FFX! Yay!

No date, and just a promise that it's coming soon. But I'll take it.

#43 Posted by Slax (913 posts) -

I'm waiting for the show stopper.

#44 Posted by Enigma777 (6071 posts) -

Soul Sacrifice, God Eater 2, that Koei game... Sony is really trying to fill that MH hole, aren't they? Not very successfully, if I might add.

#45 Edited by Slax (913 posts) -

@enigma777: Since I'm ignorant about MH. Why are these games not good alternatives?

#46 Posted by Aegon (5545 posts) -

Meh, all of that was already known.

God Eater was an early, blatant attempt by Sony to get a Monster Hunter surrogate on their hardware after Capcom jumped ship for Nintendo. Soul Sacrifice and Toukiden are unproven new IPs.

#48 Posted by selfconfessedcynic (2530 posts) -

15 seconds or so of FFX HD... I'm happy.

Again, not saying that it's a good thing that I'm happy - but I am.

#49 Posted by JaredA (822 posts) -

I feel like there were way to many Monster Hunter clones...

#50 Posted by Enigma777 (6071 posts) -

Think of it this way: MH is like the COD of Japan and those other games are the Medal of Honors. Functionally they're decent, but also incredibly derivative cause they're all chasing that MH gravy train.

Well the jury's still out on Soul Sacrifice, but I have little faith in the other two.
