All 3 tracks for silver pass come directly from the 3DS version of Ridge Racer. There are also 13 Idolmaster car skins for the Japanese market. Not sure we'll get those. So the total number of tracks after gold and silver dlc will be 9. I'm assuming if all goes well, then, we may see a Bronze dlc pass which could potentially add another 3 tracks to bring the total number of tracks to 12, on par with RR psp. Hope they go this route.
Many thanks for the info. I'll download the Lost Ruins track tonight; I always loved that track from Ridge Racer 7 (if it's the same one I'm thinking of where you race through a waterfall).

And while I'm talking about Ridge Racer, I noticed that RR7 on the PS3 (the best game in the series IMHO) was updated a month or so back and when I played it I swear that it now has anti-aliasing when the game never had before. The game always looked good at 1080p running at 60 fps anyway but the jaggies were noticeable even at that resolution. I'm wondering if the patch added MLAA or something... anyone know?

Regular PSP version has a lot of RPGs but the vita i believe the only one worth mentioning is the Disgaea 3. Other than that there is a full list i can give you for the RPGs (given they are on PSN though)

For me, I'd of just kept my psp if I had to pay for a vita to still play the same sh*t. I really wish this handheld had more titles available. I wonder if dev's jare afraid to support it or if kits just got to them too late.

Oh believe me...I have both my 1000 and 2000 PSP working in excellent order because I have almost all good RPGs for the system. Rip the UMD and dump it on the memory card to save battery life.

More games are on the way, check this year's upcoming E3. Re: Ridge racer vita, the first car and track from silver pass has been released today in UK along with patch 1.02 a few days ago. Team vp was also reset.

oh yeah, Persona 4 has been officially announced for US market this fall. Looks pretty good tbh. Waiting is always a b*tch, but, that's the way it is with new hardware. Japs are also petitioning for Monster Hunter to come to vita...

Ys: Oath in Felghana and Ys Seven are both on PSN, don't know if they work fine on Vita but they're worth checking out, particularly if you like near unforgiving action RPGs, well, Oath in Felghana is rather unforgiving for making mistakes, Ys Seven is rather easy compared to it due to all the new mechanics.

Oath is also on PC tho, rereleased on Steam with the Win7 patch and such. There isn't really any difference between the two as the psp one is a port of the old 2004 PC version, the only differences is that the PSP version has a double boost ability and voiceovers while the Win7 version has two new hidden bosses and lacks voice acting (not a negative tho).
The game itself is extremely simple mechanics wise and you may think at the very beginning that you can just mash attack to win... then you reach a boss battle suddenly you get a wake up call, the difficulty only goes up from there and healing is rather scarce.

Ys Seven is party based and requires you to rotate between three characters to defeat different enemies as characters have different attack types that only affects certain monsters, they naturally also all have different skills. It is going a little more towards RPG than action as you have lots of different piece of equipment, skills, etc but the action part is still more or less intact (enemies do get much trickier to defeat much like the other Ys games). It's worth a try, it's also PSP exclusive. Falcom is also remaking Ys 4 for the PS Vita with a tweaked version of this engine along with tweaked mechanics.

As an added bonus, the soundtrack to these games are excellent. You could also check out Ys I & II Chronicles if you don't mind old school, they're very archaic in design (being a remake of the first two Ys games from 1987 and 1988), hell, Ys I doesn't even have magic... actually neither has an attack button! You defeat enemies by ramming into them at odd angles, from the sides and back as well as off center of their sprites (ramming into them any other way will cause you to take damage).
Actually, that is not entirely accurate, you could technically say Ys II has an attack button as you do get a fire spell which you can charge.

Most of the boss battles in those games take quite a bit of practice to beat, particularly on the harder difficulties where they're almost the equivalent of bullet hell except in action RPG format.

Otherwise I believe Persona 2: Innocent Sin is on PSN as well, it is the first part of Persona 2, the one that was never localized in english untill this remake of it, the Persona 2: Eternal Punishment remake is on its way as well. Note that they're very different from Persona 3 and 4, they're more straight RPG with none of the dating sim elements, the art direction is better as well. You can negotiate with demons to get new persona cards or other items too, something I feel should be in Persona 3.

Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together is a very good pick as well if you like tactical RPGs, it has a fantastic story, one of warring kingdoms and power struggles, with a much greater focus on the conflict and characters than the fantasy aspect, it also features lots of sidequests and different branching paths to the story, so there's plenty of replayability.

Do PS One Classics still work on PS Vita? Because then there are plenty other RPGs you can pickup on PSN if they work.

All silver pass cars and tracks for ridge racer were finally released today in the uk. Tracks are welcome albeit short additions. Got Mortal Kombat a few days ago, great mk game, but, sometimes i get the feeling this port was meant for psp graphics-wise. Scorpion and liu kang look atrocious lol. Otherwise a very nice game that feels like mk 2+3. Doesn't look native resolution in-game though, but, runs really smooth 60fps.

@ scoutingwraith

Nice selection of games.

I think trails in the sky part 2 and 3 should be out in english this year, and maybe ff type 0.

Crisis Core is a great game however costly punch was too friggin slow.

I find your comment quite ironic considering what you use your experia to play. You should sell your vita tbh. End of "problem".

I got Mortal Kombat for my PSV last week for SimplyGames (it was only 23 too!!!). I think the game is extremely good and the graphics are, for the most part, decent as during the fights you cannot see the reduced detail and textures on the models due to the size of the screen.

However, when the camera zooms in during the Brutalities and Fatalities as well as when transitioning to and from the single player FMV the models can look sub-PS2 like. Not only that but the lighting between the FMV and in-game visuals are often different whereas in the PS3 version I also have these transitions are almost (though not quite) seamless.

I personally think that the developers should have dropped the framerate to 30 fps and upped the polygon count/effects/detail for these close-ups and kept the 60 fps framerate everywhere else.

Great game though and if you overlook the weak visuals when the camera zooms in then it is highly recommended.

I knew about the deal, but, after careful consideration i actually decided it was better for me to fork out and get psn download instead. MK as I said is a great game with plenty to do. It's these kind of games that make me glad I got my vita. It also makes you learn more characters than any sf game I've played. In motion this game is great, but, as you said close-ups could have been better .

there's tons for my xperia, virtua tennis, nba jam (new edition that is on psn network), super monkey ball. I like the vita for the graphics, I just wish it had more than 3 games. I beat wipeout and Uncharted...I may grab MK. Waiting for Resistance.
