Multiple times throughout the year Gamespot claims to be showing a live event, like now.

 

Gamespot link states- Live Now:Tokyo Game Show 2012

 

Anyone/Everyone, is this live?  I didn't think so either.

These were interesting news, if I don't have to watch this video about three times to understand this accent. In addition, I was kinda expecting some PS4 news

the blue vita looks really really good. If they don't release a ntsc-U one I'll just import it since its not region locked

I just want to laugh at all the Vita naysayers who a few months ago were saying the Vita is dead and Sony is OBVIOUSLY not bothering to support what they KNOW is a dead system.

adhoc party...

 

Always though that feature was pointless until me and some mates played GTA: Liberty City Stories on a free period in sixth form.

 

Quality, providing you have the mates to do it!

 

I'll be getting a vita.. eventually.....

Its a pity that Sony didn't at least have some new information on the PS4 to give people this time around. They're obviously in no rush to get it made. Personally I'd like to see it out yesterday!

I would buy that console for maybe $199. Sorry but the thought that I could buy a next-gen console from Nintendo for only 100 more makes me shake my head at Sony.

Either the coverage is really weak there, or its another lame year for TGS.

@Trickymaster except that WiiU is one generation behind and not a proper next gen console.

 @Trickymaster except that the graphics are almost comparable and you can take it everywhere....you can't do that with the wii u....unless the datapad have games you dl in it

 @Kravyn81 We're not doing a full blown serious live show this year, but we might do some quick guerilla-styled podcast things on Twitch. Stay tuned for those!

 @DeathProofDelta I got it free from my mobile operator, (im not in US) as a reward for advicing 3 friends to them. :) I enjoy it... but yea, I dont have any ps vita game yet... just bought a few psp games, ps one classics and super stardust delta with soundshapes XD some are free... like montezuma, ecolibrium and stuff like that... I'm waiting for killzone, gow and stuff like that.... i mean wipeout is nice... but it's nothing new.

 @KBFloYd Well the color choice wouldn't have been so bad if they would've made them darker.....Nintendo made the same offensive color palette mistake, too, for 3DS XL. They're not the best shade of red or blue, for handhelds, imo.....<_<

 @KBFloYd Silver or white probably the smarter move for Sony.

 @obsequies  @endorbr Exactly.......it's just like the same shit people talked about the 3DS. Nevermind the fact that both handhelds weren't even out for an entire year yet after their respective launch dates (though, admittedly, Nintendo was in a bit worse off of bind due to poor launch lineup & pricing, at that time). The games hadn't even rolled in--for either system, at their respective times--before people was ready to write them off......<_<

 

I suppose people (both in the media & elsewhere) figure if handhelds don't pull iPad/iPhone-type numbers right out the gate, it somehow 'fails'. They forget handhelds share the same slow start as their home console counterparts when first launched. Numbers don't explode out at the start of consoles lifecycle (maybe w/ the exception of the original Wii), but rather over time as the software library grows and more features are added.

 @jsmoke03  I don't understand this part of your comment

 

you can take it everywhere....you can't do that with the wii u....unless the datapad have games you dl in it

 @Supabul  @jsmoke03 I think he meant you can take the ps vita everywhere which makes the wii u obsolute in regards to its controller.

 @obsequies  @KBFloYd LOL....ouch. Yeah, I absolutely hate that red on the new 3DS XL. I liked the fiery red color on the original 3DS WAAAY better. And I'm still kinda mad they didn't to use the burgundy/wine color again like they did for the original DSi XL. I LOVED that color choice.....best DS color they every used, imo. 

 

That was probably the most sexy and stylish color Nintendo EVER used (well, dark metallic navy wasn't bad either). What the hell, why couldn't they have just that one again?? >_<
