This week, the biggest selling video game in Japan is for the PS Vita. While the handheld seems to be on its last legs in the west, here in Japan, it’s doing pretty well.
Although Mighty No. 9, the Megaman-like, crowdfunded platformer, was originally expected in April 2015, its release date was first moved to September 15, then to February 9 of this year. This latest delay shifts the date to spring 2016. At the earliest.
Alone With You is a spooky sci-fi adventure with a heaping helping of romance. Wanna feel Feelings for AI holograms of your dead colleagues? Wanna feel exceedingly weird about that? Here you go.
On February 15, 2012, Sony of America launched the PlayStation Vita, a powerhouse portable that they promised would deliver “console-quality gaming” to commutes everywhere. Nearly four years later, it’s safe to say they failed. But the Vita is a great machine—even without Sony’s help.
I have long been a fan of the PlayStation Vita. So this quote from one of Sony’s head honchos about portable gaming seriously bums me out.
The PlayStation Vita is a handheld video game device manufactured by Sony Corporation. It was first released in Japan in December 2011. In 2015, some new games will be released for it.
Late last year Sony agreed to settle with the Federal Trade Commission over claims that it falsely advertised the PlayStation Vita console at launch. Anyone in the U.S. who purchased the handheld prior to June 1, 2012 is entitled to $25 cash or one of three different game bundles. Here’s how.
Like the Xbox One months before it, Sony's PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita have been delayed in China until further notice. The reasoning behind the delay? Sony needs to resubmit its business plans to the Chinese government.
Microsoft's Xbox One has had a pretty rough time in China. Despite good early sales, the system is having problems, and now with the looming PlayStation 4, Microsoft and its retail vendors have resorted to dropping the price of the console.
Snazzy, beloved noir adventure game Grim Fandango is getting resurrected: better graphics, new controls, new music—the works. Not so long ago, however, the game was seemingly lost to time, and Double Fine had to go on a journey involving chains of people, stolen hard drives, and lost code to save it.
A sequel to Tim Schafer and co's classic skeleton noir LucasArts adventure, Grim Fandango? Be still, my non-beating heart. This is only an idea that's been kicking around in Schafer's skull for a while, but it's an exciting one nonetheless. And it's inspired by Grand Theft Auto, of all things.
"What do you want the PlayStation TV to do for you?" That's an important question when considering purchasing Sony's new microconsole. A more important question might be "Do you know what the PlayStation TV is?"
Sony just published a list of additions it's bringing to the PS4 with the upcoming 2.0 system update. A few neat things stand out, such as the ability to add a PS Plus game "to a PS4 owner's library without downloading it." Or shout, "Find face!" at your console and have it respond. Read the full thing here.
I haven't been the biggest fan of the PlayStation Vita's remote play function. It sounds great in theory—use your Vita to stream games from your PS4, play games in bed or on the go! But it never works quite like I want it to.
I have a three-year-old daughter. I probably shouldn't be playing Murasaki Baby, a game which is, in essence, about leading a toddler girl into and out of danger.
Good morning, everyone! Welcome to Kotaku's review of Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. Since the two of us—Jason and Kirk—have already spent a ton of time this year talking about Danganronpa, we figured we'd team up to review the sequel together.
You'd be forgiven for thinking, if you watched today's Sony Gamescom conference, that Sony has already given up on the PlayStation Vita.
PlayStation Now, Sony's streaming/renting service for games (well, some games), is moving into open beta. A word on prices: they're kinda ridiculous, though Sony says " you will start seeing reduced pricing on some 4-hour rentals" in "a few weeks".
Corgi Time: check out the latest game by hilarious game designer (and occasional Kotaku columnist), Tim Rogers—it's called Tuffy the Corgi and the Tower of Bones. You kind of need to watch this absurd trailer.
