Original story (scroll down for list)
The best thing, to me, about the YouTube app on the Vita is that now when I’m rummaging through the Vita PSN Store to find a cheap but potentially good PSP or Mini I can then flip over to the YouTube app and watch some video of it. The problem is that most of this video was shot 5 years ago and is done with inferior cameras filming an inferior device.
So I decided to step up and fill the void with footage of the PSP and Minis that I have. My camera is nice, the Vita screen is amazing and sometimes having that second stick can really add to a game. These videos aren’t perfect, of course. I wish I could get a direct feed as even though the camera is pretty amazing it does create interlacing and aliasing issues from time to time. Also you’ll notice there is no game sound. That’s mostly because it’s summer here and my air conditioner is about 3 feet from where I record.
These videos are being put up with the hopes that people doing exactly what I do with the YouTube app will see how the games will run on their device. This post will be updated all summer long (and I expect the entire project to take me all summer) with new videos. I don’t own every PSP game, obviously, but it’s kinda absurd how many I do. Requests will help move things to the front of the queue so feel free to drop them in the comments. And if I don’t own it you may help convince me to buy it…
