According to vgchartz,PS Vita reached 7 million units lifetime sales so far,after almost two years in the market.Numbers are not great for Sony's second handheld,considering that that PSP had sold around 17 millions units after 2 years,but hopefully sales will pick up with the recent price drop,PS4 compatibility(remote play) and the western release of the PS Vita TV
Borderlands 2,one of the most anticipated games for 2014,is currently under development by Iron Galaxy Studios.The PS Vita port will feauture everything the console versions had,including the 4player coop mode but the only thing we knew about the release date is that it will be released in 2014.

PSVita TV,Sony's microconsole,is the way for you to play your downloaded PSP,PS ONE and some of your PS Vita titles(games that use touchscreen,rear touchpad,camera are not compatible for now)on your TV.You can even have the ability to remote play your PS4 games on another TV.Overall it's a great idea but the Japanese market doesn't seem to agree with that,judging by the first sales numbers....

Grand Theft Auto,one of the best selling franchise,is a game that PS Vita's library is missing so much.Yesterday,Rockstar games announced that a remastered version of Grand Theft Auto:San Andreas is coming for the mobile devices this December.No surprise that a vita version wasn't on the list.
Killzone Mercenary is one of the best PS Vita titles available.Guerrila Cambridge developed the best handheld FPS shooter ever,but the good news is that the developers will continue to support the title with even more updates.

Persona 4 the golden is one of the top PS Vita games so far,no doubt about that.So every vita fan were hoping for an exclusive sequel for the handheld.Today Atlus announced a persona vita title but there are some good and some bad news about that.
Remote play is one of the most amazing features of the PS4.Sony's latest console was built from the ground up to work as a perfect companion to the PS Vita.With remote play you can take your PS4 games everywhere.Many people found the control set up complexed and uncomfortable though and preferred the dual shock 4 to be used while playing through remote play.Officially you cannot control your ps4 games on the ps vita screen using a dual shock controller,but there is a solution...

The Playstation 4+PS Vita ultimate bundle is finally a reality.Now that the remote play feature is working great,the demand for both sony's consoles will be high.Playstation 4 sales are on fire right now,so Sony wants to take advantage of this interest and sell more units of it's powerful handheld.But how much should Sony sell this bundle to be successful?
Crash Bandicoot,sony's first mascot,was one of the most popular exclusives created by Naughty Dog back in the PS one era.After the ps one glorious years the franchise moved to various different publishers,but everyone failed to replicate it's success.Activision held the rights for the crash bandicoot licence in the last couple of years but...

Freedom wars is the next big Japan's PS Vita game,after the release of God Eater 2.It is due to be released in Japan in early 2014.The concept is nice(monster hunting with some spiderman web action in the future),but i think it needs some work to be ready.Sony has already confirmed a western release somewhere in 2014

This week media create figures are in.The ps vita version of God Eater 2 is in the top of the charts selling more than 266000 and boosted vita's sales to 46000,more than double from last week.PS Vita tv sold about 42000 units in it's debut,an average number in my opinion for a new console launch.So combined sales for ps vita this week were 88000 beating 3DS that sold 70000 combined.Nice week for vita in Japan!
Remember the days when sony had a loss for every PS3 sold?These days are gone...PS3 manufacture cost was about $805 and the console's price was $599.According to a research firm IHS,the construction cost of the Playstation 4 reaches a total of $381,just $18 less than the retail selling point,but it's a progress for sony i guess.
