    yesterday I was looking for the PS+ arrivals when I see a beta for Killzone Mercenary for PS+ members.
    have anyone tried the beta yet?? I'll be looking it at my lunch break, hope isn't a online only beta, but is the most likely.
    I'm interested to know how well FPSs works on Vita, the most close to FPS game I played on Vita is Uncharted and the gyro aiming was fantastic.

    Downloading it now myself, but my 32GB memory card is bursting at the seams! Why can't I hold all these games, Thug?!? Damn you, Sony! Is this a ploy to make me buy more of your expensive memory cards?!? ;O;

    Pah! Sony only realised the Vita to sell these damn expensive memory cards.

    I also have nearly 3GB free on my 8GB memory card. B-)

    I tried out the beta just a few minutes ago, it's actually pretty good, it may actually be the first good FPS to make its way to the vita, it is though (unfortunately) online-only, and it is limited to (for as far as I know) a single map, and a single game mode. Still, that doesn't keep it from showcasing the vita's true capabilities, the game looks gorgeous.

    I tried to test it, but unfortunately I couldn't because tells me that can't connect of find online games.
    a friend of mine has a Vita and PS+, so I'll try local multi when can.

    I can't play it either. Its telling me it couldn't connect to a server, or that the connection was dropped.
    I know I have no problems with my internet connection because everything else runs just fine. Oh well.

    I played it and thought it was pretty fun. I'll probably pick up the full game.

    finally I was able to play a couple of matches, very fun and the graphics are impresive.
    apparently ran at native resolution with anti-aliasing, the lag wasn't very noticiable, found the gyro-aim a little to insensitive and you can only use it when aiming through the sight but is a matter of practice I think.
    here some screenshots

    It's not just for PS+ members anymore. Amazon is still giving codes for it via Facebook.

    I let my PS+ expire a while back. Didn't play the PS3 or Vita enough to keep it.

    It's pretty fun on the rare occasion you can actually connect, although 30% of the people I get paired up with ignore objectives in favor of random killing sprees. If anyone in the US or Canada wants to add me (I doubt my connection's good enough to join a game further away) my PSN's FEGuy.

    I've got to say after playing the beta quite a bit this game has gone from a 'maybe' to a 'definitely!' Paid off my preorder it will come on release day or the day before!

    I've been having a ton of fun with no connection issues I get into game after game with no problems at all.

    Really looking forward to the full game now and got to give props to Guerrilla this is an amazing achievement.
    Protip: turn up X and Y sensitivity to max to own the competetition.

    Some screens I made for people who can't play the beta, remember these are HALF the res of the actual game:

    Also guys 32gb cards are under £40 on amazon uk right now, you have expand the seller list to find the cheaper ones.
