On February 15, 2012, Sony of America launched the PlayStation Vita, a powerhouse portable that they promised would deliver “console-quality gaming” to commutes everywhere. Nearly four years later, it’s safe to say they failed. But the Vita is a great machine—even without Sony’s help.
I have long been a fan of the PlayStation Vita. So this quote from one of Sony’s head honchos about portable gaming seriously bums me out.
The PlayStation Vita is a handheld video game device manufactured by Sony Corporation. It was first released in Japan in December 2011. In 2015, some new games will be released for it.
Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a tiny set-top box that plays all your Sony PlayStation games? That's probably what you'd think if you saw the new PlayStation TV on the shelf. For just $99, this incredibly tiny box promises the world. Shame it doesn't deliver.
Following a recent across the board price drop to $100, Amazon is taking another 40 dollars off the price of the Moto X for AT&T subscribers, and $50 off for Verizon users. This the best Android phone for most people, and even if you're enamored by today's reveal of the Nexus 5, this is quite a bit cheaper.
The PSP never exploded. The Nintendo 3DS is a letdown. Now it's 2012, and Sony has the chance for a clean start that'll put console-caliber games in your bag. It does—but does a pocketable console really make sense anymore?
Over at the Gamescom conference in Cologne, Germany, Sony just stated that they will incorporate both Skype and Foursquare into your new Playstation Vita come early 2012. They were cagey with specifics, but this is a good thing for the console.
You already knew most of the details about the next PSP. But now we know its name: The PlayStation Vita. 'Cause it means life, or something. Update: Hands on. (Sony was being stingy about photos/video though, sorry!)
