    Great episode, really useful information. I have a quick question, let’s say I tried a physical version of a game and I played it for a few hours… I’m enjoying that game and I decided to purchase the downloadable version of the game…. Do I lose my save data? Thanks for all your hard work! (you guys should get paid by Sony for all the work and info that you provide!)

    • http://psnation.org Glenn Percival

      I’d assume that your save game should work.

    Great show (as usual), guys. Torgo, you’re getting your Andersons confused. While Paul Thomas Anderson did direct Boogie Nights, it was Wes Anderson who directed  Royal Tenenbaums and Life Aquatic.

      Oh yeah, I always get them confused.

    Not sure about these FIFA touch controls yet. Been playing FIFA on PS for around 14 years, pressing circle to shoot is just second nature! Holding down the button for that precise time to control how much power you have on the shot is also important, can’t imagine it’s the same with the touch panel.

    Also, before people buy this one, they should probably know a couple things:
    1) In around April/May, there will inevitably be a Euro 2012 game out, with FIFA 13 to follow in September. 
    2) The games of these international tournaments are usually the place where they first introduce new features, which then become standard. Examples: celebration system in Euro 2008 & penalty system in World Cup 2010. 
    3) EA always releases one of these ‘half-way’ games when a new console launches – not quite a brand new game, but also not fully an old one. This is basically just a cheap testing ground to make some quick cash. I’d recommend sticking with FIFA 12 on PS3 then getting the next game (with a much improved/refined engine) on Vita.

    Anyway, that’s my two cents on the matter and sorry for taking up so much space to talk football games. I know it bores you people! ;-)

      Actually Raj, they may be more cautious about releasing on Vita. They seem to be in a “wait and see how it does” approach with a few franchises on portables.

        ‘They’ as in EA or Sony?
