The PS Vita Slim is already a thing - in Japan. It's 20% slimmer than its original counterpart and has been unavailable in the west. That looks like it's just about to change. IGN have recieved an invite to a press reveal promising the slimmest launch in PlayStation history. Just what on earth could that mean?
The leak has you salivating - it's almost too good to be true. Might PlayStation Plus in EU territories really contain both Bioshock Infinite and Metro: Last Light? There's only one barrier stopping you from getting too excited: it's yet to be officially confirmed. Today, Sony's Fred Dutton has confirmed that they're hoping to have the Instant Game Collection announcement up tomorrow.
It looks like the February content for Europe's PlayStation Plus content may have been leaked, and boy is it a good'n. There's enough here to keep you going for the full year, let alone just for February, and owners of each console are going to be hard pushed to get through it all. Still, it's hard to deny the value, even if it just sits in your download list for the next six months.
There's been a lot of speculation about what Sony will be looking to do with the Cloud, and it seems like they might have been reading an awful lot of what people expect from the service online. It's slightly underwhelming in just how right many of us were about it, but in every other way I'm not sure they could handle it any better. There are a few questions left to be asked - which probably means we won't like the answers - but so far we're impressed.
Valkria Chronicles 3, the tactical RPG from SEGA, has finally been translated into English for the very first time. This is great news for all the English fans out there who were yet to get to play the latest in the franchise! It will be interesting to see how it's rated compared to countries like Japan who have been playing it for a while.
It's nothing to sniff at, but everything Naughty Dog are working on has been announced. There's no secret Last of Us 2 being built behind closed doors, no Jak 4 on the horizon. This was revealed at the PlayStation Blog when somebody asked whether they would be bringing anything to Vita. The answer was fairly final.
The PlayStation 4 has had a fantastic launch, and Sony Computer Entertainment are no doubt hungrily planning what to do next. It's an amazing piece of technology, and one that gamers are buying up in their droves. Sony aren't only known for their gaming consoles, however, and in other areas things aren't going nearly as well.
The original Gravity Rush was a quirky action adventure that, more than perhaps anything else at the time, showed off just how awesome the Vita was. It did something innovative and different, while remaining fun and grounded. Not many games manage to pull that off, and a sequel was inevitable (and welcome). Good news all around: the sequel is coming along nicely, and systems for the new game are currently being put in place.
It would seem that Bioshock Infinite and Persona IV: The Golden might be coming to PlayStation Plus in the near future, or at the very least receive heavy discounts.
The latest update to the 12 Deals Of Christmas has been announced. Deal 6 brings with it a couple great deals for both PS3 and PSV. Remember, these deals will only be available for 48 hours so get them while they're hot.
