Playstation Vita Launch Was Very Positive, Says Sony

Playstation Vita Launch Was Very Positive, Says Sony

The Playstation Vita has officially launched less than 24 hours ago in North America and Europe and SCEA President and CEO Jack Tretton already seems quite enthusiastic about the results so far. In an interview with IGN, he claimed that the launch was "very positive" and that the software was selling quite well with Uncharted being the clear winner in the line-up:

"Memory [cards] are going out the door very aggressively despite the fact that memory is in a lot of the presale bundles. The software appears to be selling quite well top to bottom."

Perhaps to be cautious in his predictions, Tretton also added that he doesn’t need to see record-breaking sales to be happy with the initial figures:

"Our definition of success is a 10-year product lifecycle, relevant on a worldwide basis with a very dedicated, happy consumer base that is loyal to the brand."

Will the new system find more success now than with its Japanese launch? Stay tuned as the sales figures are sure to be revealed very soon.

The Last Guardian Will NOT Appear at #E32015 and Here's the Reason Why...

Since its reveal at E3 2009, The Last Guardian has not resurfaced other than in rumours and in statements regarding said rumours. Sony admits to major studio problems during the game’s development, but constantly reassures those anticipating the game that it is still not, and will not, be canceled. So is this the year that we finally see the resurrection of The Last Guardian? In my opinion, the answer is a big fat NO.

A Few Good Reasons for Grounding Players in WOW

A Few Good Reasons for Grounding Players in WOW

Getting my first mount in World of Warcraft was a major milestone. It came at a time before Blizzard reduced the cost of training for a ground mount and the gold required seemed like an impossible sum when quests were doling out a few coppers. What's more, I was foolishly selling my gathered iron or mithril to in-game vendors rather than placing it up for auction. I won't get into the particulars of my moneymaking strategy but I will say that it wasn't effective and very indicative of my n00b status.
