PS VITA game - guard duty £6.39 PS+ (£7.99 without PS+) Cross buy with PS4 @ PSN

Posted 25th Apr

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Just stumbled across this game on a VITA YouTube channel. It's a point & click game made by a Bristol based studio that's got lots of great reviews.
If you have playstation plus then it's £6.39, without its £7.99. Seems a bargain as its £7.99 on switch on offer (will be £9.99) but its cross buy so you get it for the PS4 as well as the VITA!

I love the VITA so want to support it when I can. A good way is when you are buying a Cross buy game, purchase it on the VITA so that it shows sony we are still here!

Just for those keen on the vita, or on the fence, it's never been a better time to buy.

You can now do some DIY on a vita and get it to do all sorts of stuff it wasn't designed to. It all requires some knowledge of hacking, but it can all be learned and there's some excellent vita hacking forums on Facebook, or videos on Youtube.

1. A normal vita is limited to 64gb memory via SONY's official memory cards. These are about £75 each and fail (I've had three fail). NOW, you can run your vita on a micro-sd card through the game card slot, using a SD2Vita, or (if you're lucky enough to have a 3G vita) you can replace the internal modem with a PSVSD for internal memory. There is no known cap on the size of micro-sd cards it'll take (1tb proven). You can run both the SD2Vita and PSVSD for double micro-sd storage (I do).
2. You can pair a dualshock (3 or 4) and play games on the vita with a bluetooth controller.
3. You can run homebrew, retro and online downloads of any vita or PSP games. I don't advocate piracy, I've over 350 physical vita games, but it's great to play things like PSP games, Gameboy Advance games, Commodore '64 games .etc - *use roms you have bought.
4. You can build a vita-dock (a bit more complicated than the other points above), using a raspberry pi. This allows you to create, essentially, a SONY Switch... A vita that plugs and plays on any HDMI TV or screen. I love mine, and it's plug-and-play, just drop the vita on and off you go - again, using a dualshock controller if you wish.

My vita now has 800gb of internal memory via two 400s (looking forward to a price drop on the 1tb cards), 1000s of retro games, can be used as a "Sony Switch", can pair and use dualshock controllers with it AND it's just a kick-ass machine anyway (out the box). There's also all the normal reasons for buying, amazing handheld gaming power, stream and play PS4/PS3, great screen, two cams, touchscreen, augmented reality games, motion controls, top-quality build.

It's not just the best handheld console of all time, I consider it the greatest games device of all time.

All vitas are excellent, but if you're buying I'd recommend trying to obtain an original 3G vita. These give you the most perks for DIY work. The original vitas have the best screen and better build quality. The newer model is lighter and the screen, while less attractive, is less likely to have burn-in issues. That's not an issue on the original model if you run it at sensible brightnesses for the light you're in (it very rarely needs to be on max).

Vita means life... get a vita.

What's a vita


It's a retro/current handheld console the cool kids have
hanzoadam25/04/2020 09:22

I actually still play mine


Mine is used about 50% remote playing ps4 games (so wife can watch the TV) 30% my VAST vita/psp/psp minis back catalogue that was free with PS+ & the last 20% my digital psp games. I have 2x 32gb & 3x 64gb cards full!
Only had 1 psp digital game that isn't officially downloadable on the vita (star wars elite squadron I believe?) so that's on my hacked psp 2000 which has a 2x 128gb micro sd cards in & all, my 100+ physical psp games copied too it.

Oh then there's the PS TV hooked up to the bedroom TV as it's on the wall it makes a great unobtrusive console to put with it. Used mainly for remote play though

Playing it now. It reminds me of discworld on ps1!

Also to add, there's trophies support as well

Why wouldn’t there be trophy support?

As in another reason over paying more for the switch version which doesn't.
Actually recently bought the Physical Version of this from East Asia Soft. Supposed to be pretty good.

I tried too but they'd already sold! Went live 11am yesterday I believe? & only 1000 made. I'll certainly be keeping an eye on play Asia now for physical releases.

Only played half an hour & already laughed several times! There's a bit where you get a beehive stuck on your head & get stung. From then on you talk in gibberish (spoken & text) but there's also a translation underneath

& there is a nod back to discworld. Just click on the chest on top of your wardrobe
They went live on Thursday at 4pm. I got on it at about 5.30pm and a good proportion of them had already gone. Got myself Demon Tier+ too.

Guard Duty sounds good Fun, will buy it on PSN so my boxed version can remain unopened 🙌🤷

This is a great forum, the guides in "announcements" are foolproof, if you carefully read and follow every point.
I don't know why Sony don't take advantage of lockdown and the success of nintendo switch by doing a re launch of Vita, which is a far superior system

No, you can do everything in my post - except the PSVSD. So, you can still run a micro-sd card through an SD2Vita in the game card port. If you were really keen, you can turn a "wifi" vita into a 3G with some board changes, but it's not really worth it - you can do all the other stuff I outlined as is.

These are great links - but I would strongly advocate that anyone follows a proper guide from top-to-tail.
If you dance around doing some steps without fully understanding the entire process, it is possible to brick your vita.

This forum is the one I would recommend. Go to announcements, it has everything you need.

Good point hope mine helps in some way.
This is a good website to watch for price reductions (seeing as the store front on the vita hasn't really updated for 4 years!)

psprices.com/reg…ita

Turns out sony are doing a big in Japan sale again so there's a fair few vita discounts to be had!
Been playing this for a couple of days now and can say I'm really enjoying it, it's like an homage to all point and click adventures, loads of Easter eggs to spot from other games, from monkey Island, discworld, broken sword, beneath a steel sky and operation stealth to name but a few.
