        To be fair they may shut it down completly for me, PS Now is overpriced and in my country it wasn't even available for the Vita at all (PS4 and PC only).
        I think they don't earn enough for it, wouldn't be suprised if PS Now would end like Eye Toy, PSP Go, PS Vita, PS TV and PS Move (in first place) for Sony, Sony kills what doesn't earn them quick cash, PS VR could be next because that one is struggling.

        Sorry, I didn't see these comments until now. No I don't understand Japanese, but it is my dream to own a complete worldwide collection for Vita someday. The imports I buy are either super cheap, or aren't hindered by the language barrier. Such as action games and what not. :)

I only just buy what I want to play or what looks like it would be an interesting or new experience to try out on the Vita. My collection is continuing to grow quite well. I'm up to 112 English physical releases as of today. :)

        Nice! Oh by the way, if you're getting Persona 4 its very heavily story based. The first 2 to 3 hours of the game are mostly just cutscenes, giving you only a few brief things to do inbetween. After that is when the game gets good. :)

Even if it meant I'd have to play the game at PSP game resolution 480X272 and at only 20fps! As long as the full game was there on the physical game card? Compromises or not! Count me in! :)

        I just ordered the game brand new sealed of eBay for $39.95 USD! Free shipping and no sales tax! Does the game have an update patch or is it good to go day one on game card?
