Unchained blades and vita / psp games and vita
so this doubt is eating me... for those of us who have a vita.
just a few days we had the release of gungnir and unchained blades, both games should work on vita but as of today none of them are available for download on vita store.
i tried to look on it on the net and in atlus forum one of the administrators there said that gugnir indeed works with vita, but the problem is that for a psp game to appear on the vita store sony need to check the game first to see if there are no "holes" on it that could be used as an exploit for the system, thats why it takes some time.
anyone knows if thats true???
also what will happen in the future for vita owners... as we know there are some nice psp games being released on japan and maybe some of them will see the light of the day here. will we vita owners be able to play them???
can sony speed up this whole thing? or maybe could developers/publishers send the games a little early to sony for them to check it in time for the release date???
really this whole thing is weird. vita should be able to play psp games, and its not like that vita itself as so many games for us to choose from, so psp games are still a good choice for everyone.
would like to know what do you guys know or think about it...
The general consensus around the web atm is that Sony doesn't care about Vita, and they care even less about the PSP or supporting its games. Nothing devs can do other then wait for Sony to get around to it...or bribe them
I think sony would want their product to sell I mean why wouldnt they want it to realistically?
I honestly have no idea what the issue is with getting games on the device,Im not a game developer and I honestly dont care enough to google it,But one would think Sony would want a system they created to sell ,sitting arround gathering dust dosent do much for making money after all,though I do have to admit even though I now have an extensive psp library it didnt happen untill the psp was out for quite a few years and even now in comparison to the ds it still has more games than my psp does so I think its just bad decision making on sony's part.
Im thinking they probably want to pillage peoples money on old ps1&2 clasics befor introducing new games mabey? But who knows there are a fair few games for the Vita to be released this coming summer ...
I just wish people wouldnt complain about a game not being on a certain system sorry but thats an irk of mine lately with seeing almost everywhere people lamenting "why isnt <insert tittle here> on the Vita?" Its just not. I dont particularly want a Vita or 3ds but im going to have to buy them if I want a game for that system...The Vita will get games coming to it in time,who knows why they arent right now but in future im sure there will be at least a few for now im happy I just dont have to go out to buy one since the psn DD games are psp friendly and that makes me happy
It's one thing to want something to happen, it's another to actually take the actions necessary to make it happen.

The PSP platform is well exploited by hackers and the current way hackers have broken (partially) into the Vita is by using the same techniques they use to hack PSP games. Sony is trying to prevent this from happening by analyzing PSP games for exploits and rejecting them before they end up on the store. Finding an exploit is like finding a needle in a haystack which takes a long time.
I don't doubt this story... but in my eyes that is a complete joke of a reason to withhold anything. Because a handful of computer nerds can get a product for free, they are going to hold back the masses that want it? Even a bad businessman would take the temporary hit in sales
