This week marks the launch of the PlayStation Vita, the successor to Sony’s PlayStation Portable handheld gaming device. Launched last December in Japan, the Vita did not fare particularly well, being consistently outsold by its predecessor even during the Christmas shopping period. Part of the blame lay on a more Western-friendly lineup of launch titles, but is another portable device really what the mass public wants, or are we all satisfied with our multipurpose iPhones and tablets?
We’ve already got a ton of Vita-related content to help you decide whether the device and its games are worth the $250 point of entry, and throughout the week we’ll be releasing more reviews, more features, and giving away more free games.
