Pre-Orders Get the game for Vita Free & Extra Costumes!

#1 Posted by AlanLeeCraker (3 posts) -

Hey guys, I've been playing this Beta steady. I love it. It is obvious that kratos is a favorite to many and he has a lot of great moves. Right now I am trying tomaster a different character so I can try and beat him online with another character. My favorite is Radec, I feel his is the second most powerful in the beta so far. But maybe any character can be most powerful with enoguh practice! I am going to pre-order this game for sure. I found a place offering a free copy for PS Vita and free extra costumes for all the character with the ps3 pre-order. Seems legit http://furor.co/best-playstation-all-stars-pre-order-bonus/ I just dont know if I can really stand for it to be mailed to me. Im going to want to play right away. Anyone wanna add me on ps network and battle? PM me if you do!

;) Al

@AlanLeeCraker: It's getting the extra costumes and the Vita version for free everywhere. All PS3 games that are on the Vita version also get the Vita version free.

Also, this is old news.

That's so cool about the PS Vita Games. Something Nintendo is far behind on. With great titles like this game and Call Of Duty Black Ops Declassified Ill be getting one soon. I hope Grand Theft Auto also comes to the Vita soon. It surely will in time.

Man, I don't know. How is that something that Nintendo is far behind on? They seem to offer very different games on their handhelds and consoles. I prefer that to a stunted version of a console game on a handheld. But I guess it's cool that they offer a free Vita version, though I suspect it is to boost the poor sales of the Vita.

The Vita version of PS All-Stars is pretty much exactly the same as the PS3 version and it is quite impressive. I guarantee you that 3DS version of SSB4 won't come for free with the Wii-U version and it won't live up to the console version, either.

That is not a bet that I would take, but to be honest I'm not really a fan of the 3DS either, or SSB4. I don't really like console ports of games to handhelds, unless if the game is old enough to have a simple enough control. So yeah, I guess what I'm saying is that I agree with you.

I don't have an opinion on All-Stars, I have yet to play it,and I don't own a Vita. Is the beta oen to plus members? If so I will check the game out.

The beta is even cross-platform. They're the exact same game.

However, Sony's only doing this because the Vita's sales are so shitty. Also, this is so much more formulaic then Smash Bros, meaning you just do the same thing every match...

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to imply that they were different. I merely meant that it's not an experience I would care to play on a Vita.

Though I could be wrong, I remember really enjoying Jump Superstars on the DS, though I think that, being a game designed for the DS, it played to that handheld's strengths more. I'm sure All-Stars is just as good, though I wonder who the audience for it will be, and if it will have the same wide appeal that SSB has.
