I need some help! I'm buying a black vita and I can get 2 games and a case with a screen protector or I can get 3 games and wait for the case later on.

Little Big Planet
Assassin's Creed 3 Liberation
Persona 4 the golden
Zero escape: Virtues last reward

I am definitely buying Little Big planet but I don't know what other game to buy. Should I start off by buying 3 games or should I get 2 games and buy a case for my vita? What game do you think I should get?? Thank you (:

Do you have PSPlus? If you do you already have 6 games?

If not perhaps it's time you do.

If you like RPG's then get Persona 4 for sure, one of the best games ever.
I would only get Zero Escape if you have played 999.
Assassin's Creed 3 Liberation is a really well made game and fun, there are a few bugs but a patch is incoming.

Just get PS+ and download Uncharted and Gravity Rush. Cheaper than buying 2 games. Little Big Planet will definitely be free on PS+ at some point.

For starters, I would definitely subscribe to PlayStation Plus, which nabs you six games right off the bat for $50 (downloadable, so get a good-sized memory card).

"download Uncharted"

Great game, but annoyed that I paid $50 for it now that it's free. :(

I've played it start to finish 4 times, I feel like I got my money's worth.

A Rhetorical question: Who said there weren't good games on the Vita? Definitely get:
-Sound Shapes
-Persona 4 the golden
-Zero escape: Virtues last reward
-Playstations All-Stars Battle Royale
-Need for Speed: Most Wanted
-Wipeout 2048
-Resident Evil(s) 2

Do you have to pick from that list?

If so, I think any of the other 3 would be good - just depends on what you like.

Personally, I would recommend either the MGS:HD pack or Rayman: Origins. Also, Unit 13 is awesome - although I traded it in for credit towards BL2. Thinking about picking it up again on Black Friday, though.

Ninja Gaiden for a runner up, if you don't already have it on another system.

"A Rheutorical question"

Is this an arthritic question?

Yes and no. LOL.

So, the Vita not having any games is a lie?

I received gravity rush and uncharted as a bday present a few weeks ago. MGS peaks my interest but I know nothing about the series. I really want to get persona (I've played the past few games) but Im cntemplating about buying persona or zero escape (I've played 999) as well. What are the pros of the Ps plus?

You be the judge. The evidence is clear.

If you don't know anything about MGS, that collection is a good place to start... though you might want to download and play the PSOne classic of MGS off the PSN first.

Cloud Storage, Free games, discounted games and DLC, early access to demos and betas.

Jenny says:
So if I sign up for a couple of months, do I get to keep the free games or do I have to continuously pay every couple of months?

The main pro of PS Plus is the "free" games. As long as your subscription is active, they have a small library of games you can download and play. New titles get swapped in regularly.

There are also a number of smaller perks, like automatically downloading firmware updates, cloud storage, and discounts on PSN purchases.

The yearly subscription is the best deal, but once it expires the free games are no longer playable.

Sounds like a good deal but im just afraid that Sony might let us down with the Ps plus like they did with the remote play.

You might want to check out Gamefly for a good deal on used Vita games. They currently have a $12 off 2 used games coupon (there's a thread on the Amazon forums) and they have Little Big Planet for $34.99 and maybe something else you might want to try. If you didn't know, used games from Gamefly come with the box and manual in perfect condition as they never get sent out with the games.

I can name plenty right from the top of my head. Like person 4, MGS, assassins creed, little big planet, zero escape, unit 13, resistance, gravity rush, uncharted, black ops, sound shapes, little deviants, hatsune miku, project diva f, ragnarok, etc. And great upcoming games like tearaway, bioshock, final fantasy x and so on. The Ps vita is starting off slowly but I'm sure plenty more great titles will come in the near future. That's why I'm so excited for bioshock and tearway (;

I would recommend a grip before a case unless you really plan on traveling a lot with it. I have the PDP PSVita Trigger Grips and it makes the Vita a lot more comfortable to hold during long play sessions.

Games I would start with:

Uncharted: Golden Abyss
Little Big Planet
Gravity Rush

Or just get PS+ and download the free games you get with it.
