Great bargain, but I don't see an order/add to trolley button on either that or the PS4 version unfortunately else I'd jump on that!

I preordered it around 9AM & then the add to cart thingy disappeared a few hours later. Can't imagine for one second that it'll be honoured. :P

Rayman update. (via Eurogamer)
Rayman Legends launched in September to rave reviews, but Vita players were frustrated to find out that the portable version of the game omitted the title's 28 "Invasion Mode" stages that remixed previous levels into a more challenging form. Ubisoft previously said the missing content would be added as a free update and now we know when: 26th November. Mark it.

The announcement came through the official Rayman Twitter account where it noted that leaderboards will be added too, meaning the Vita version will finally contain all the same content as its console brethren.

This update follows the news that Rayman Legends is coming to PS4 and Xbox One in February.

I can't wait for the rest of the Rayman levels to be put ack. It going to make my hunt towards platinuming that game a tad less time consuming!

Anyone tried Real Boxing? It's £8 but is a shoe-in for eventual PS+ inclusion I'd say. Worth the cash?
If you enjoyed fight Night then you'll love this...well worth the money, but you are correct it will be on ps plus in the next six months

You'll have to let me know what marvel vita is like. I'll grab it at some stage but not before I get done with the console version!

Sidequesting on Dragon's Crown at the moment to level up in order fight the Dragon, really impressed by how varied those missions are, hell it's all so damn impressive!

Nope. Once again the Vita version is just an up port of the 3DS version rather than a console port (and the 3DS version is a different game).

Its a great game and really suited to the Vita. It really feels like a decent spiritual sequel to Capcoms Dungeons and Dragons games.

Also, is anyone else getting Terraway this week? It looks fantastic and I'm surprised to see that its only £20. Can't wait to give it a try...

I'm enjoying Lego Marvel (having gone into it knowing what to expect) and the objectives per level are giving it a bit of nice replay value. The only downside to that is you cannot see the objectives before selecting a character in free play, which results in you having to back out to the menu and start again due to your character being unable to do certain things.

The only major gripe I really have against it is the lack of cutscenes. They have a cutscene at the start of a level and one at the end, but nothing in between, which makes you confused as to why a certain character is now there. Case in point, one level is introduced with a cutscene showing Black Widow and Hawkeye (whom you the proceed to play as). The next part of the level has you playing as Human Torch, with no detail given as to why you've suddenly switched character.

Yes mate it's more suited to the Vita than the PS3 for me, the touchsceen interactivity and the pick up and play nature are great to drop in and out of when you're out and about, don't get mw wrong the PS3 port and connectivity is great too.

I must check Terraway out becuase I know nothing of it.

I'm reviewing A Men 2 and it's an absolute slog. Far too tricky and lacking all the charm of Lost Vikings which is about the closest thing to it. Ugh. Worst music ever too.

Me too, it's one of my most anticipated games at the moment, looks like it'll be a lot of fun. :)

I also bought EDF Portable whilst it's discounted in the recent PSN 'Sci Fi Sale', really really enjoying it. :)
