The PS Vita is not dead in Japan! Just a friendly reminder. To mark SaGa Scarlet Grace’s release, Sony is releasing special PS Vitas in Metallic Red, Glacier White, and Black with a total of seven different design variations. 

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.


I`l have my Vita over that cheap plastic handheld that they call 3DS.

The Vita handheld was amazing from the start, Nintendo had to make freaking 2 more to get a result which doesn’t even compare to the Vita.

I think i bought every good 3DS game, and only 1 was actually good, and that was the new Zelda game, everything else looked good, but MY GOD was it boring.

Haters gonna keep on hating.

I could write a freaking 10 page story on these 2 handhelds and their fans, both have weaknesses and both have strengths.
