Let it shine

There’s a treasure in the world of Sparkle 2 that’s so well hidden that nobody has ever been able to find it.

14th May 2014 (Europe)

Big hit

It’s a slightly meatier European PlayStation Store update than North America this week – even if that is primarily because we’re playing catch up in these parts.

Sony: The Economics Don't Work for Blockbuster Vita Games

Gulp

Despite seeing a strong year-over-year improvement in Japan, the PlayStation Vita continues to find itself in a weak position overseas.
