I could see that, early 2017 God Eater 3.  Though I feel they've still saturated the market a bit between there being two games last year.

If it is GE3, absolutely no chance it's not on Vita.  Bamco may be silly at times, but it's still gonna be their main market for the time being.



Ordered a new 32GB memory card.
Got a few games from the Mid-Year sale.

Ar nosurge Plus $16
Hyperdimension Neptunia Rebirth 2 $3
Hyperdevotion Noire $3
MegaTagmension Blanc $16
One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 $12 (Hope it has cross save)
Adventures of Mana $14
Also got Takes of Symphonia Chronicles for PS3 for $4
Have $7 left to add to whatever comes next week.



I Love Playstation, but my uncle works at Nintendo.

Interesting read about Monogame and Vita:

https://www.reddit.com/r/vita/comments/4qi2he/monogame_ps_vita_sdk_is_currently_in_alpha/

 

In short, this means the potential for more PS Vita game releases, because it means two things:

  1. Developers can use the programming language C# (pronounced "C sharp"), without Unity, to develop Vita games. This has me very excited, as C# is my favorite language for games, by far.

  2. Existing games built with either Monogame or XNA will be significantly easier to port to Vita.

Last December, there was an article posted here that explained the existence of a transpiler (program that converts from C# to C++ code) that was being used for games like Bastion, Axiom Verge, and Towerfall: Ascension. That article indiciated (or else I misunderstood) that developers working with Monogame/C# would still have to have another team doing the port, as the transpiler was only available to the guys who built it -- Tom Spilman and Sickhead Games.

In the post linked here, though, Tom is indicating that there's another option available beyond the transpiler: an actual PS Vita implementation of the Monogame SDK, currently in an alpha state. Transpiling source code from one language to another can sometimes/often require additional work after the transpilation process, but having true PS Vita support in Monogame means just writing code once and having it work on all platforms -- including PS Vita.

So should we expect FFXV and Persona 5 ports very soon ? Seriously though which kind of developers could this potentially affect, only indie right ?

Indies, yup.  Games which came to Vita using Monogame include - Axiom Verge; Bastion; Fez & Towerfall Ascension, all which had to use the conversion tool I believe.

Notable missing games include - Mercenary Kings; Stardew Valley & Transistor, so hopefully we'll see some movement with those games since porting should be so easy.
