See how PSP MGS: Peace Walker is better on the PS Vita


6:30 PM on 12.29.2011



You know what could have made PSP game Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker better? A second analog stick. Do you know what has a second analog stick? The PlayStation Vita. Deduct -50 points if you were a smartass and answered "PS3."

Snake's latest outing on the PSP is just a bit better on the Vita, as are all the other PSP games I've seen on the unit. The screen is bigger, so that means that visuals are stretched out a bit, but they look nice, and the Vita seems to make them all more colorful. A "Bilinear Filtering" option cleans up the image in some games. 

The big difference is with the control, as we're now working with two analog sticks instead of one analog nub. This is fantastic for Peace Walker, as you'll see in the above video.

I'm enjoying PSP games on Vita. I can't wait until the US PS Store launches, as I have a ton of games that I could be enjoying.

Oh, how I love Diamond Dog. He's my BFF. Following that 20 minutes of Metal Gear Solid V footage out of Tokyo Game Show, here are some related screenshots featuring the pup, Quiet, and Snake's robot hand doing its thing. So, so glad The Phantom Pain is coming to PC as well as consoles.more

The ghost from P.T. is in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

In Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, players will be able to use Lisa, the apparition from P.T., as a decoy. It's times like these that remind me why I adore videogames. The little touches, y'know? The weirder, the bette...more
