Just a small bit of news this time.
Sony announced on the PlayStation Blog that there is going to be an Aqua Blue PS Vita coming out this November. This is the first time that the slimmer model has been released in the US in a different colour, other than the factory released black. It is only for the Vita Slim, so depending on your takes of the different Vitas, this is either good or bad.
Personally, I think that it looks really nice and if I had the money, I would probably get one. People may see the Vita as a failure because there is no AAA support for it anymore and that the library is bad, but the Vita and the community are on the rise and it has a library of over 1000 games. Plus it can stream most PS4 games via remote play.
I used to be a Vita basher until a year ago. I was expecting it to be this awesome mobile device where I
could play Uncharted, Infamous and other AAA games but I was disappointed so I gave up hope on the device. However, I was browsing on the Playstation store looking at games I can’t afford, when I decided to look in the Vita section. There are actually really good games. I was just flicking through and I found over 30 games that I knew of and would play right away. Uncharted Golden Abyss; Minecraft, all the Sly Cooper games, Ratchet and Clank Trilogy etc. I saw more games for the Vita that I would play than PS3 games that I own. That number doesn’t count the indie titles that I haven’t heard of or have overlooked. I really love the Vita even though I’ve never owned one but I have to say that the little machine gets too much hate.
During the GameStop Managers Conference, they announced that this will be exclusively coming to GameStops nationwide in the US. It has a price tag of $200 which isn’t too bad. A bundle hasn’t been announced but I assume it will come with the standard 8gb memory card, which is nice because they are really expensive.This means any other regions that wants this, will have to import it. Luckily the PS Vita is a region free device so you can still buy games from you country.
