Will you buy PS Vita at once when released?

PS Vita starts at an unbelievable $249 price tag, and available in two exciting models with amazing features like dual analog sticks, 3G/ Wi-Fi and motion sensors. It has high performance CPU & GPU which provide you a visually outstanding graphics that you never seen before on a portable console. And also you can chat with friends when playing games or watching video with your PS Vita. It is definitely going to be the choicest console of the year for all gaming fans.

In addition, some other features like: replace background, touch screen and move to aim instead of buttons are absolutely surprising. Meanwhile, from what i have learned some of the best games in the form of concept seem to be coming to the PS Vita. The advanced technology which supports high revolution games is used in PS Vita, so this device surely reduces the loading time of the game to make you enjoy more gaming action. Its storage will take flash media up to 32GB so as to make gaming more easily.

Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Hustle Kings, Little Deviants and Little Big Planet are some wonderful and famous games you can play on PS Vita with more fun and features, Little Big Planet is especially amazing.

We believe PS Vita will definitely rock the market once released in Japan late this year with superior features to any other handheld consoles and the price will be significantly affordable. With its motion controller, Sony is using immersive interaction primarily through a more tactile interface.
Therefore PS Vita is the latest buzz in the gaming world. Its exciting features and unbelievable price tag have made it the choicest option for all gaming fans. Are you ready to experience the next generation gaming device?

Someone maybe going to buy once it is released. But According to my experience with PSP, I don’t want to buy it so earlier, just wait for some time.

I bought one PSP and a great number of games when it was released; I was highly pleased with them at that time. However, several months later the slim version came out with lower price and faster speed compared with original one, and also it is obviously lighter and smaller. I am regretful for what I have done before. In fact, Sony also does the same with PSP 3000.

Now my original PSP is pretty much out of date because of too slow loading time. It is almost impossible to play any PSP games was then designed for more powerful PSP 2000 or 3000.
I suppose this will happen with PS Vita samely based on Sony’s product extension strategy. It happens commonly for electronics, better build quality, slimmer and smaller and obviously cheaper, but significantly unfair for buyer who bought one original. This happens with consoles as well though, better build quality and smaller

So suggest to anyone considering buying PS Vita, stop step or just buy the second, or even the third version.

M3DS Real Review

The M3DS Real designed and manufactured by M3 adapter team can support DS, DS lite consoles and its predecessor is M3DS simple and its brother is M3i Zero. It is the same with some other R4 cards that it owns 100% NDS compatibility and also owns some other better features.

Just because former M3DS Real is basically same with most R4DS cards, M3 team designs this unique style and leads fashion at that time.

The package size of M3DS Real is the same with that of M3i Zero that with grey color and a little hole to hang up in shop. In fact, its package size is smaller than Supercard dstwo but larger than R4i gold 3ds and R4i SDHC.

The design of carte M3DS Real is wonderful just like Supercard dstwo nowadays that one clip holds two parts together pretty well. Its build quality is exactly solid that it is hardly not been bent or creaked

Package Content:
• M3DS Real cartridge
• Micro SD card reader
• Rumble Expansion pack

                                Cartucho M3DS Real

In fact the GBA Expansion Pack is the best stuff about the M3DS Real, it takes clean ROMs, and works fast and well, and even features cheat support and real-time save functions.

Just like other R4DS cards, the M3 Real requires a MicroSD card with the firmware installed together so as to work. It works by reading the MicroSD card content and loading the firmware from the card now, these cards do not need to flashed but only updated easily when new firmware come out.

The M3DS Real's loader is stored on the MicroSD card, and when the system files cannot be found, a message saying "No system file found! Put system file in". So please remember to put loader files in the root of your MicroSD card. And also when using, firstly players have to drag and drop all the game files on to the microSD card and then enjoy playing. In general, both homebrew and wifi games are well supported by M3DS Real.

Conclusion:
The M3 DS Real is a really sturdy cart with excellent Rom compatibility and outstanding Rumble Expansion pack and lower price. I do recommended this cart for player who wants both DS and GBA excellent Rom compatibility at a competitive price.

Pros:
Auto Homebrew DLID patch
Cheat Support
GBA RTS+RTC Support
Good skinning engine

Cons:
Random 10sec lag when selecting games from NDS and GBA games
Homebrew will only be automatically DLDI patched if placed in the root of the MicroSD

Official Feature List:
100% Game compatibility supports clean ROM's
Works with any DS.
Extreme simple to use: just drag and drop files to the M3 Cart.Standard FAT system.

PlayStation Network account (PSN) being converted into Sony Entertainment Network account (SEN)

With an aim to unify Sony’s PSN and other Entertainment Network services, recently Sony has released statement to make clear its attitude to rebranding PSN instead of SEN- Sony Entertainment Network as of Tuesday, February 7, 2012. It is also noted that this change will not apply to PSP when logged in.

So when PS3 and PS Vita users log in, they will see SEN and say goodbye to “PSN” forever, but PSP users still can see the PSN. As to the username and password which keep the same with before, and anything you have purchased for your PSN account before will belong to your now SEN account, although the "rebranding" includes changes to the Terms of Service, User Agreement and Privacy Policy.

This change is helpful for Sony to unify and consolidate user accounts across all Sony services. PSN users logged in the gaming network using a PSN account previously, but after February 7 they can access gaming and other entertainment services from only one SEN account. In the press release, Sony said "This helps us get closer to our goal of establishing a global comprehensive network platform of services across games, movies, music and more, all accessible from one convenient account."

The new SEN account will let users access Video Unlimited, Music Unlimited, PlayMemories Online and other Sony products.

Some blogs speculate that the rebranding of PSN accounts may reflect Sony's attempt to distance itself from a cyber attack that led Sony to take the PSN and Qriocity network offline for almost a month in April 2011. Maybe this is one of big plans from the new president and CEO, Kazuo Hirai since April 1, 2011.
But anyhow, I hope Sony can improve really their service network service quality, not just rename its network account, or what they are bring to users is only trouble. Any reviews from you about this rebranding account?

Supercard dsone kort review

Today i want to test Supercard ds one kort to guide for one who are going to get that.Of course, the basic package,hardware and software are important.

Package
After five days shipping, I am getting one supercard ds one on my hands from schedads.com, its outside package is only a cardboard box which give me a feeling of fault: The R4 card and Micro SD reader may have been destroyed during shipping, because the outside package is wrinkled and bent. However, when I open the outside package, I am really shocked that I found the inside package-a plastic container has protected the R4 card and USB reader well, which is really impressed me. That means even if after many days shipping, you are not need to worry you will receive one damaged R4 karte. Or if you drop them down by accident, it will keep completely good.

Hardware
The build quality is decent with one screw at the back of Supercard, which holds R4i card together well, unlike M3 DS Real with clips on the side to hold. When testing durability, after dropped, supercard ds one still be held together well.
However a bit of lack is Micro SD slot is very tight so that when you insert or take out your TF card, it is hard to do. For example, when insert TF card into M3 DS Real, I only takes the edge of my thumb to finish, but I need a finger nail to push TF card into supercard ds one carte.

As a matter of fact, it is a little bump, what I need to do is to get a right size screwdriver to take it apart, and screw it again, then the TF card can be inserted smooth, no trouble now. So you can ignore this problem.

Software
Evolution OS is really creative, which is different from other cartucho r4 ds. The instruction can’t list EOS features, for example, when you download the firmware, it can’t guide how to access it and only tell it has an in-game menu that is used to access Real time save, brightness, access to a game guide and so on. That is a absolutely useful menu for you don’t need to turn off Nintendo console to switch games.

The instruction booklet guides you where to download the correct files and how to enter the “test menu” and don’t guide you how to change the speed of Micro SD card and how to access the cheats and how to get the cheats.

The Supercard ds one even don’t show any” unnecessary” files, like .gbc file, even there is no OS folder show when you put it on Micro SD card. That means supercard ds one is definitely not a nice file browser if you are looking for a certain file on your Micro SD card. Conversely, you have to need a laptop to make sure it is there.

Above all, supercard ds one owns perfect compatibility with almost every game, good “multi save” and “cheat menu” features. However, its “file support” exists many lacks, only own format, but hard to find the file. If you are familiar with R4 ds kort, Supercard ds one is a good choice for you to operate.

Of course, besides supercard ds one, you can choose other kort ds, for example,R4i gold kort,r4i 3ds karte, scheda R4i gold 3ds,cartucho acekard 2i,cartucho m3i zero,carte supercard ds onei mini,scheda supercard dstwo,R4itt 3D and so on.
