In a recent post on mojang.com, creative writer Owen Hill has posted that a "slightly improved" version of Minecraft is on its way to Xbox One, PS4 and PS Vita this August.
Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories don't get the love they deserve. As expansions on the PS2 classics, they built on the stories and characters of their respective games, but were left behind by only being available on PSP for the majority of their lifespan. A late release on PS2 and digital release on PS3 meant fans could rebuy, but hopefully the newly announced Vita version will offer a new life to these all too overlooked titles.
Child of Light is an absolutely staggeringly beautiful game, great fun and impressing critics left and right. There's one problem though: if you're not sat at a console, you're not going to be able to enjoy it. That's why it's great news that Ubisoft have announced that they're bringing Aurora and pals to the PlayStation Vita later this year.
Digimon rode the same wave Pokemon did for a while in the nineties, but when the fad ended, so too did the mainstream acceptance of those digital champions. Pokemon kept working as a full-on RPG and Digimon, at least here in the UK, disappeared from charts. That might be about to change.
Feeling a bit overwhelmed by how many titles you have in the backlog? Worried that your 250+ games on Steam have never been touched, and yet you keep buying them? Things might be about to get much worse. IGN are reporting that they've been told the PlayStation Now streaming service will contain "hundreds of titles" at launch, an event that's happening this summer for you lucky North Americans.
If you own a PlayStation 4, a Vita or have downloaded the official PlayStation App on your smartphone, you'll have seen an update notification today. The PlayStation 4 has been updated to 1.7, and the other two platforms have been updated to allow for new features or to fix old ones.
All of Sony's main HD trilogies are now available on the Vita, and a lot of the third party collections have made their way across as well. There's one major franchise missing, and it's especially surprising since they've made their way to the console in a separate game already. Ratchet and Clank HD isn't yet available on Sony's latest handheld, but it seems like that might change fairly soon.
Here in EU territories, we've had access to almost the entire PS1 classic range of titles on the Vita since the day Sony's PlayStation Emulator became available almost two years ago. We've been playing Crash, Spyro, Final Fantasy and Tomb Raider like nobody's business. Unlucky residents of the US haven't been able to do that... until today.
Sony Asia have once again announced the upcoming games for their PlayStation Plus content, most of which end up being exactly the same as the EU stuff. There's a nice mixture of titles this month across all platforms, certainly enough to keep most people happy until May.
The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 1 made it to a variety of platforms late last year and the second episode became available in February. Despite that, there's still not been much in the way of talk about the Vita version. Those that wanted to make difficult moral decisions concerning zombies while in the bathroom or on the bus were flat out of luck. That seems like it's about to change.
