As of tomorrow, there is no reason to not buy the best (from a technical standpoint, at least) handheld on the market.
During Sony’s February press event it was revealed that Gaikai was acquired to stream gaming to multiple devices, and Sony’s updated site suggests that the PlayStation Vita will play most, if not all of the PS4’s titles.
This is the 25th anniversary for the Final Fantasy series, and that means big savings for Sony fans.
The Vita’s troubles aren’t a secret to anyone, but this is a huge sign that the struggling handheld is in need of some serious help.
For nearly three years, PSP users have had a handy little app that would let them purchase a variety of comic books. Sadly, Sony is shutting down the service next month.
MonkeyPaw Games has partnered with GAIJINWORKS to bring the localized version of the JRPG dungeon crawler Class of Heroes II to North American audiences.
Sony has announced that some time later today when the PlayStation store updates, Skype will be made available for both the 3G and wifi versions of the PS Vita. Both voice calls and video calls will be possible, making use of both the front facing and rear camera on the Vita. It will run in the background so you can answer calls while you’re playing games or using any other app. You can simply pause your progress, take the call and then resume your Nathan Drake treasure hunting once the call’s over. Senior director, consumer electronics group at Skype, Manrique Brenes, is quoted as saying that his move is all part of the company’s “…ultimate goal of [...]
MonkeyPaw Games Inc. , in partnership with GAIJINWORKS LLC, announced a partnership for a new Kickstarter campaign aiming to raise $500,000 to help one of many Japanese RPGs release their first hybrid digital/deluxe physical release. MonkeyPaw Games will be picking up Class of Heroes 2, which was created by the acclaimed Acquire Corp., for release in Europe and the US. MonkeyPaw Games’ plan is to use the funds they hope to acquire from the Kickstarter campaign to make improvements to the game as well as offer a limited edition, Deluxe Pack physical release for the PlayStation Portable that will only be available to Kickstarter supporters.
The campaign hopes to gain the [...]
Our good friends at Shifted2U are reporting that the PS Vita store has launched in the US with a slew of games and videos in stock. With the same colors and a similar structure of the PS3 and PSP stores, the PS Vita store will have PS Vita, PSP, and PlayStation Minis as part of the downloadable games section, and movies, game trailers, and shows in the video section. While the official launch of the PlayStation Vita is still a ways away (Feb 15th for First Edition Bundle purchases and the 22nd for everyone else) the PS Vita store is up and running, which is a good sign.
Below you can get a closer look at the store and (more importantly?) the prices of [...]
SNK Playmore has released Bermuda Triangle and Gold Medalist as PlayStation minis for PSP and PS3.
Bermuda Triangle is a top down shooter originally released in 1987. Gold Medalist pits you against the rest of the world by competing in various events to win the 1988 Seoul Olympics. I find it quite delightful how retro this all is.
These games join several other SNK Neo Geo titles already available and are available right now for $2.99 each.
In an interesting piece of news, it has been revealed that the PS Vita and PSP can play ad hoc compatible games together. Ad hoc is used to play PSP games with other people nearby using it’s Wi-Fi signal. This might not seem that exciting but with ad hoc Party on the PS3, you can play ad hoc PSP games with anyone else on the service. This basically makes it an online game but removes the portability of the system.
The PS Vita can download PSP games from the PlayStation store meaning that you can still play Monster Hunter with your friends from back home on your Vita or in person if you want to ad hoc more traditionally.

Anyone with any primeval urges will be happy to know that with Carnivores: Ice Age you can shoot up saber-tooth tigers, wooly rhinos, and even huge mammoths.
The game throws you onto a recently discovered planet to test your hunting skills on a ‘realistic’ ice safari. It doesn’t exactly look like Crysis, but hey, there could be substance in the title.
