Poor PlayStation Vita. It has been the whipping boy of critics and outraged gamers since day one, and with every sales figure update or release schedule revision, many are keen to pounce on the handheld and declare it ‘dead’. Sony’s refusal to release official sales figures only breeds paranoia, and its sparse gaming line-up strongly implies that developers may have given up hope too. Thing is, Vita isn’t dead. It’s just resting its eyes. It’s waiting for the PS4 to unlock so much of that potential locked away inside its hard and software. Make no mistake, PlayStation 4 can save Vita from failure. Without PS4, there’s little doubt that the nay-sayers are right--Vita will flop, thanks to its relatively high price, the stiff competition it faces, and a dwindling line-up of quality games. However, this winter could represent a significant boost for the handheld that, for all its faults, is still a cracking little piece of tech.

Sony, let’s face it, has not always been the most original company in console gaming. You might well mock Microsoft for its lazy, simultaneously cheap and expensive “buy the hits” approach to its first party output, and you’d be right to. It’s a situation that has only become grossly exacerbated over recent years, as real games have given way to Kinect fluff and the misconception that third-party DLC exclusivity periods are as exciting as Uncharted 3. But for all of MS first-party faults, it has rarely been known as a flagrant rip-off merchant. Sony however, has notorious pedigree in this area, going back as far as the day it stuck a couple of extra buttons on a SNES pad and called it the PlayStation Controller. Don’t get me wrong. SCE is responsible for some of the freshest, most exciting IP seen in this (or any other) generation. And it still has amazing-looking stuff to come on its current-gen console, even at this latter stage of the PS3’s … [Read more...] about PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale: How embarrassing idea-theft sums up Sony’s failings, but is also a smart move
