For those who may not know, VC3E2 is on sale on the Japanese PSN right now for 980 yen (roughly $9.50 USD).
From a comment made by our main editor that may have been buried in the comments section:
If you use neuron’s “umd_dump_simple” plug-in, you can convert your PSN purchase to an ISO file. After this, you can apply the patch and it should work. We have been testing our patch with an ISO from the UMD, Thus, the PSN purchase method was a very last minute feature. However, it seems to work fine.
So PLEASE if you want to support this game series be sure to buy it via the PSN Japanese store, and do it by Jan 8th to save money.
Almost there guys!
