    for those of you who followed the scene,we know that we may never again have TN-V when sony releases the next fw update.
    so this also means that this may be our last chance to use the store to buy those games only available in the store
    so which are the good games in digit-format only in EU?
    i think
    mind zero
    escape plan
    dokuro
    gravity crash ultra
    murasaki baby
    child of light
    did i miss anything?

    You can still transfer bought Vita games from your PS3 to your Vita though. So you can technically still access the Playstation Store provided you have the right firmware for the games you buy. Anyway, here goes:

    Muramasa Rebirth
    Dragon's Crown
    Atelier Meruru Plus
    Atelier Totori Plus
    Velocity 2X
    Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F
    Possibly Conception II depending on your tastes

    From the games I own, I'd recomend Monster Monpiece (if you like vn's and card games) and Conception II.
    Monpiece is currently for half price due to PSN's Digital Only promo.

    I swear I saw a couple of those "download only" games boxed in a store nearby, namely Mind Zero and Child of Light, if not more. I'll have to double-check.

    If you saw Mind Zero then it was probably an American import.
    As for Child of Light, it was never digital only, it had a physical release in Europe too.

    I sincerely doubt it, but even if it was, the Vita is region free anyways so it's not like it matters. ;)

    It's not too hard to open a PSN account for a different region. It's a hassle, but it's not like you can't access the DLC in any way. ;)

    Opening and using one is easy enough... but switching between them is such a massive pain on the Vita it might as well be impossible if you already have an account with games attached to it.

    Here's a thought - make a choice. Either support homebrew and piracy or legitimate game purchases. Nobody's stopping anyone from grabbing another PSVita just for legit stuff.

    This whole thread is about people making lists of games that are download-only because they don't want to update their systems to a firmware that doesn't support TN-V. They have access to the games in their region, they'll just lose that access if they don't update. Don't want to lose TN-V? Don't update then, but it comes at a cost. Want to have TN-V and downloadable games? Buy another Vita. You can't eat a cake and still have it.

    i got an answer about my thread:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_PlayStation_Vita_games
    well not that it matters now that sony updated

    i do have a question though.....that method about buying the game by accessing the psn with the pc (and so not accessing from the vita) does it work?and if that works why the need of grabbing an exploit before sony updates?

    You can buy it via SEN, but you can't download it unless you have a hacked PS3 to connect to.
