The last time I heard 8 people on a single show was back in the 1UP.com glory days- I can't even remember how that went. No excessive silences- and I may support a Skyrim or Batman stalemate- but hopefully not too many sacrifices will be made.
My brief adventure in Valkyria Chronicles land leads me to believe that it would be fun from a strategy perspective- and not terrible from a story end- but there are so many small pauses in the story/gameplay that we would go insane waiting for something to happen- and Patrick- by himself- would run out of inbetween material. But hey- I don't watch that much Patrick material.
Ordered mine from Amazon - hoping to use it for down time and for a full-on-console that's portable enough to bring home when I visit my family and the like. Being able to pop it in a bag and play with my family whenever it's convenient is a big plus. Hoping that the features pay off and I can save myself from not having a console for the PS3 exclusives that are coming down the pipe.
@Wolfgame That's a pain. I feel like the Memory issues of the Vita/TV is the last large bastion of Sony's old husk.
Hopefully they can find it in there heart to allow for more/lower cost storage.
