Sony's released a batch of lifestyle shots showing off the PlayStation Vita in the trendiest ways imaginable
The shots show a bunch of impossibly attractive twenty-something males playing about with their new console in public. The images prove that the PlayStation Vita's way too hip for the likes of us. Look, we don't shop at River Island. Nor do we study Media Studies. Pssht. Hardcore gamer's..

In news that will almost certainly bring out the mainstream media's pitchforks, Sony has supposedly cut the PlayStation Vita's shipment by 50% in France
The cull is probably designed to better service other regions, but we daresay it will bring out the the "doomed" brigade in the coming days. For what it's worth, the unconfirmed report filed by PlayPortable-Live, states that the PS Vita's..
Sony's closed down Little Deviants developer BigBig Studios, a Develop report has revealed
The announcement comes alongside news of a major shake-up for the platform holder's Cambridge division.

Sony's lifted the lid on the PlayStation Vita's gigantic launch line-up for North America
Director of hardware marketing, John Koller, described the unprecedented 25 game strong launch line-up as the "biggest and best" any platform has ever released alongside. Even if Koller is paid to say these things, it's hard to disagree. Day one titles from the platform holder include Uncharted:..

Reef Entertainment's announced what we make to be the third official release for Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle — 24th February 2012.

If you're still without a camera mount or clip for your PlayStation Eye, Snakebyte's just released its cam:clip in Europe.

It's not quite as imposing as this PS Eye, Kinect and Wii Megazord, but then what is? snakebyte announces cam:clip for...
Collector's Edition detailed too
Ninja Gaiden III will reach Europe on 23rd March complete with Dead or Alive 5 demo, Tecmo Koei has confirmed.

Child of Eden was pretty cheap to begin with, but as part of Sony's 12 Deals of Christmas it just got even cheaper.

The deal only runs until 7th December so if you want to get a...
We've always talked up the value proposition of Sony's PlayStation Plus subscription service, but even we'd admit the last couple of months have been a bit slow

New mini site too
If PlayStation Move sales really are catching up with Kinect, a new campaign might just tip the balance in Sony's favour. The PlayStation Move mini site from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe contains information, videos and a Move competition.

Sony's pushed back the release of its PlayStation branded 3D display in Europe
The screen was originally set to release alongside its North American counter-part, but is currently without a date on Amazon.co.uk. As well as offering affordable 3D, the set includes a nifty local multiplayer feature that allows two gamers to view a full image on the same screen.
According to Sony Worldwide Studios Europe gaffer, Michael Denny, PlayStation Vita has "one of the best launch line-ups of any games console ever launched"
And based on the strength of the publisher's enormous first-party European launch line-up, we're struggling to disagree. Sony announced the line-up — which features the likes of Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Wipeout 2048 and Modnation Racers: Road..

The cardboard cut-outs are gone
It's not just SCEA that's gone through a re-imagining of its marketing strategy lately — SCEE's jumped on board too. And there's definitely a hint of the "old" PlayStation marketing message in this new European PlayStation Move commercial. The 60-second spot shows an unreasonably attractive couple rushing through an exciting and cinematic landscape. Brand..
The PlayStation Vita is due out in just over three months
And in order to celebrate — and presumably persuade you to pre-order — Sony's announced a European initiative that will reward you for getting your name down early with a bunch of additional goodies.

We didn't really expect to wake up to a release date for PlayStation Vita this morning. But that's exactly what's happened. Let's get the hard details out of the way before we start all the rampant cheering and jubilation: PlayStation Vita will launch in Europe, North America, Africa, the Middle East, Australasia and Canada on February 22nd, 2012. The news was broken by SCEA president Jack..
You know you want to

It be a shame for sure
We were looking forward to exploring the mysteries of Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle later this year, but publisher Reef Entertainment has decided to delay disembarking until February next year. Citing "critical and fan feedback", Reef's commercial director Craig Lewis says: This is a very important launch...
Little known Ubisoft music game Rocksmith has been delayed in Europe
The guitar game — which allows players to plug a real guitar into the PlayStation 3 — was pushed back due to music licensing and "other external factors" according to a post on the game's Facebook page. Ubisoft warned against importing the game, noting that services such as the PlayStation Store are region-locking,..
Maligned PlayStation Store manager Andy Stewart has told commenters on the PlayStation Blog that the much anticipated PlayStation 2 titles released as part of last week's North American update "are coming to Europe"
When, exactly, remains something of a mystery. Stewart would only conclude that the games are "en route". Niche favourites such as God Hand and Odin Sphere released as part of..
Start cooing now
Vita may not be out until next year, but that doesn't mean you can't find out exactly what you'll be seeing on shop shelves when the console launches. Sony Computer Entertainment Europe hardware product manager Adam Grant took to the PlayStation Blog to reveal the console's box and pre-installed applications. The box itself isn't...
Drink it up readers

Sony's European PlayStation Vita product manager, Adam Grant, unveiled the boxart on the PlayStation Blog this morning. In addition, Grant's outlined each of the PlayStation Vita's on-board apps. The post doesn't contain anything we don't already know, but it's..
Sony never gets much luck
This year alone it's been a hit by an Earthquake, widely publicised hack-attack and riots. Now it's predicting financial trouble due to the falling Euro and its inability to protect itself from the changes. Without diving too heavily into an unbelievably dry Bloomberg report — many of Sony's exports are to European countries. Some of those countries are broke..
Do you want the good news or the bad news? We'll start with the bad
SCEE's decided not to promote its PSN exclusive titles as heavily in Europe as in North America. "'The Only On PlayStation Network programme is for the SCEA region only," a Sony spokesperson revealed when asked by Eurogamer. Silly idea? We think so. We don't really...
Brush with fate
Press Play's enhanced conversion of its original WiiWare hit — now known as Max and the Magic Marker: Gold Edition — is available from the European PlayStation Store.

Sony intends to transform PlayStation Home into "the biggest and best social gaming service on any console", the platform holder has said in a new post on the European arm of the PlayStation Blog

Prices coming down
If you're after a cheap Move bargain from Sony's top drawer, you'll be pleased to know the European Platinum range has expanded with four new titles.

Buckles swashed too
Point-and-click adventure Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle just got a European date: it'll reach PlayStation 3 shores on Friday 4th November, three weeks before it launches on other consoles. The Move-enabled game is a spin-off of the popular So Blonde series and is written by Steve Ince, renowned for his work on classic...
While much of the Internet sat bemused at the announcement of a new PSP for Europe during this year's GamesCom, we were fairly calm about it
While the announcement of the device certainly took us by surprise, we also felt like it made a lot of sense. Sony's PSP strategy has shifted in recent years, with the platform holder targeting younger users. SCEE's new gaffer Jim Ryan confirmed the philosophy..
No date yet
It's been a while since Minna No Golf 5 — aka Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds*, aka Everybody's Golf: World Tour — got its PlayStation Move patch in Japan, with no word on if or when the controller would get support outside of Japan. Now we can reveal Sony Computer Entertainment Europe will add PlayStation Move support to the game in...

Sony likes splashing out on expensive truck liveries
A couple of years back it bought up some God Of War III advertising space on a couple of lorries, and now the platform holder's giving inFamous 2 protagonist Cole MacGrath a ride around mainland Europe. These trucks will be touring the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France over the coming months, so if you're in the..
Remember the "affordable" PlayStation branded 3DTV that Sony announced at E3? The platform holder's announced that the 24" stereoscopic display is making its way to Europe this year too
The TV will retail for 499 across Europe during the Autumn. Sony executive Jim Ryan boasted the television's ability to offer an "accessible entry to 3D gaming". The display will cost £499 in the UK..
Perhaps the biggest 'WTF?' moment of Sony's GamesCom press conference this evening was the announcement of a new PlayStation Portable model for Europe
The updated hardware will launch without Wi-Fi support, but will cost a mere 99.99. The new handheld is due out this Fall, and will be marketed heavily alongside Sony's budget PSP Essentials range. SCEA's said there are no plans to launch the new..
Despite the anticipation being nowhere near E3, we always enjoy the muted build-up to the GamesCom press conferences
You're never going to see a megaton announcement at GamesCom, but because the anticipation is lower, those muted surprises are all the more impactful. The PlayStation 3 Slim announcement in 2009 was huge, and we'll never forget the furore surrounding Resistance 3 last year. This year..
Still too long to wait?
We know Vita is pushed back to 2012, and we've been taking a look at the implications of the delay in a series of recent features, but now we've come to terms that the console won't be sitting under any Western Christmas trees this year, with a six month wait looking likely. According to newsletters sent out by various...
Ubi finally comes clean
Q? Entertainment's much-anticipated Child of Eden will finally come to PlayStation 3 in Europe on 30th September, complete with support for PlayStation Move and 3DTV sets. Ubisoft finally announced the features yesterday, but can it compete with the exceptional Child of Eden on Kinect? We'll find out in September. UBISOFT®...
If it wants to
Get Up And Dance will be hoping to start the Christmas party season off early when it releases in Europe on 4th November. The Move dancing game will have stiff competition from PQube's Dance! It's Your Stage, Sony's Everybody Dance! (aka DanceStar Party) and of course the behemoth that is Just Dance 3. The press release below uses an...
We always knew it was a likely scenario, but we chose to believe otherwise
Sony never officially said the PlayStation Vita would get a worldwide launch this year, only ever really committing to a Japanese launch. "Phased global rollout" was the textbook buzzword Sony used. But we believed because it made sense. How could Sony not put the PlayStation Vita out in all major markets before..
Japan in 2011
Bad news everyone — PlayStation Vita will miss 2011 in Europe and America. Sony Computer Entertainment vice president Kaz Hirai made the pronouncement minutes ago. The console will still make it to Japan this year, however. Hirai didn't go into much detail about the reason for the delay, but did say that it was to make sure the...
It's the news we've all been dreading, especially after we've had so many indications pointing towards a 2011 release, but NowGamer's citing retail sources that state the PlayStation Vita will not launch in Europe before 2011 is out
Only last week we got a retail flier indicating that Vita could launch on October 28th, but we stated at the time that the date was probably a guesstimate by the..
Visit the European PlayStation Blog at any point in the week and you'll no doubt spot a large number of people moaning in the comments
Often these complaints stem from the lack of quality PSone re-releases on the PlayStation Store. SCEE's been pretty open about the challenges of bringing some of this content over in recent months, and so today its...
Go back in time
The humble point and click adventure once ruled the roost, with Broken Sword, Monkey Island and more just some of the highlights. Now the genre's due to make a bit of a comeback with Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle for PlayStation Move, due Q4 2011. The game is written by Broken Sword scribe Steve Ince and is related to the...
