Vita’s 3G Capped to 20MB of Data Download… wait what? o__O

Seems like Sony is taking a page from mobile phone service providers and posting a data download cap on their Vita (the data download cap is only if you opt for the 3G model.)

Sony representatives stated that players who will use the 3G downloads will be limited to 20MB of data. Wait what? That’s pretty damn absurd; what if I want to download a game from the PS Store or even do some online gaming? Oh wait, I can’t even do online gaming in 3G because the speeds are around 128kbps download and 64kbps upload. So unless I REALLY like the feel of my online gaming to be somewhere along the lines of obtuse and virtually unplayable, I get no online gaming for my Vita. Which brings about another question, why even bother having a 3G model if the speeds are going to be this piss poor?

Luckily those speeds and data caps are only for Japan (as of this typing) it’s still unknown as to what Americans and Brits get to do with their 3G, but since AT&T has an exclusive partnership deal with Sony & the Vita (in the U.S. that is) I’m guessing fuck all. I think I’m going to get Verizon Wi-Fi just to see if I can make an AT&T employee’s head implode.

The PSVita launches in Japan on December 17th, 2011. And sometime in early 2012 for the rest of us that matter.

As always thanks for reading. Feel free to Like us on Facebook and stalk all of us on Twitter.

Now go back to saving the world or that princess that never puts out.

FFX for PS3 and PSVita Will be a REMAKE

 

I’m usually not the type of guy that gets “floored” by announcements, but needless to type, after stumbling upon this tidbit of news I immediately cast myself onto the floor. According to PSTime, Final Fantasy X will be a full blown remake that uses the Final Fantasy XIII engine. Now it’s time for some block quoted and bullet pointed details.

 

  • Uses the same engine from Final Fantasy XIII and adapted to PSVita.
  • All that is made ​​from scratch with the new engine is the design of the characters, the aeons and stage elements.
  • The sets and scenes in HD remastered CGI will implement a “filter” FFXIII Engine.
  • The magic and some lighting effects are achieved with the new engine “Luminous”.
  • The Blitzball undergoes some small changes.
  • Will include some online options (specific details are unknown).
  • The release date in Japan is fiscal 2012.

(Editors note: I tried to edit and modify those translated details to make the most sense as best as I could with what little energy I had)

I just hope they also edit out this laugh scene.

Tell us what you think about all of these details in our comment box (it won’t bite). Also, Like us on Facebook and stalk us on Twitter.

And.. thanks for reading. 😀

Escape Plan Announced: Gamescom

[These are only guesses and opinions]

Sony just announced Escape Plan a game where 2 Blobs try to escape this unknown place by going through rooms filled with traps and hazards to reach freedom. The trailer gave out the story of Escape Plan a Machinarium type vibe. Through the game you can blow yourself up into a balloon type figure to help you through the rooms. Such as helping you to float, bounce etc. This is great and exactly the type of games i want to see for the Vita.
