I'm a WOMAN. Stop making crazy-ass assumptions please.

I didn't say that was a bad thing. Just that it's small, cute and rather simple ;-)

Such a crying shame. I think if a lot more people tried the system they'd realise it's an absolutely fantastic hand held, despite the terrible sales numbers. All I can say is that I hope Vita owners have deep pockets to keep this baby alive.

My girlfriend has a 3DS and I just cannot see the appeal at all. Seems designed for 10 year olds and women.

@withe1982: Thanks for the recommendations withe. I just joined playstation plus and was pleasantly surprised to find thomas was alone for free! I'm currently downloading payday 2 but after that i have to give this indie title a try.

Then the worm has certainly turned for you my friend. PS+ is an absolute must for Vita owners. You can now grab Gravity Rush and Uncharted free.

Also try Lone Survivor (£9.99) if you like a good horror game and Persona 4 Golden is just ridiculously addictive if a little expensive. Tearaway is very good as well. For a good bundle try the Curve Studio bundle (here). You can buy it on line from the Sony site if you don't have a PS3 (USA) (UK) well worth the money as it's 4 great games for £8.99 (or $27 in the US).

Fantastic news for Sony. Let's hope they can deliver on their promise of for gamers, by gamers. We've yet to see that top, top title yet. InFAMOUS:SS Looked fantastic but was a bit short lived and very easy.

Also not a chance of a price drop just yet. Sony cannot keep up with demand as it it and are selling every console they produce so no need to drop the price.

Big shout out to my main man Drippy from Ni No Kuni. Best voice in gaming and extremely funny to boot. Warning slight spoilers for anyone that's not played the game .

@fiawen: Thanks. Some great tips these. Pity my PC is around 5 years too old to play it now. Heard a rumour this will be out for PS4 in May-June this year so looking forward to having a blast on it.

What is this game like? Is it anything like RDR or GTA V? I usually like just about everything that Rockstar puts out, but I've heard this game is slow and I hate slow games.

I love openworld games such as RDR, GTA and Saints Row. This however isn't one of them. It's extremely slow and repetitive. There's little to do of any note outside of missions. The whole game was quite a chore to play through.

This is basically the whole game in a nutshell:
1) leave the station and head to crime scene.
2) Walk slowly around crime scene looking for clues.
3) visit a suspect/lead/wifes house based on those clues.
4) Question suspect/lead/wife.
5) Learn about the real suspect.
6) Go the where suspect is and apprehend them (usually an arduous chase on foot)
7) Question suspect to get a confession.

Do that 20 times until the titles come up. Game does look good though and the facial animation is the best I've ever seen.

Unfortunately not to a very good place IMHO as F2P (pay to win) and indie games seem to be on the rise and AAA titles continue to lose money hand over fist.

I play a number of FTP games myself and quite enjoy them but lets just remember what they are created for. They are here to try and milk as much money out of the consumer as humanly possible. The current FTP revenue is rising 50% year on year and that will not go unnoticed by the industry as a whole.

Also don't get me wrong, I love that the industry is embracing the indie market at the minute and a number of upcoming titles from indie developers look fresh, exciting and innovative. I just hope that doesn't ring the death knell for some bigger studios who will just stop financing the big budget titles and instead rely on smaller teams bringing out smaller games more regularly. Just look at the recent closure of Irrational Games and recent lay offs across the board as an example of what may be to come.

It seems that the days of spending upwards of $10,000,000 on a game may be over as developers are just not recouping enough on their investment to make them economically viable.

Just enjoy the big budget titles now while you can as in 5 years time we'll all be playing flappy bird on our consoles (shudder)

Looks very good. Chalk that up as another great title coming to a Vita near you. The little handheld that could is certainly stepping it up a bit this year.
