What Are Your Hopes and Fears for PS4 and Vita at Gamescom 2014?

Panic presentations

Every convention comes with a combination of excitement and trepidation.

As if you need telling

There’ll be no danger of your PlayStation Vita ever tumbling off your coffee table again, as Sony has released a new stability update for the diminutive device.

Tactical Vita Title Inner City Kids Takes Turn-Based Strategy to the Streets

Pixel perfect

Inner City Kids seems to be the quintessential PlayStation Vita game.

You've been warned

Marvelous Entertainment’s ridiculously risqué PlayStation Vita action game Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus is bouncing its way to Europe this October.

Road Not Taken, The Swapper, Metrico

Clone wars

The best thing about this week’s roster of new PlayStation releases is that you’ll be playing a couple of them for free.

BioShock's Swimming to a Smartphone Near You, But Not the PlayStation Vita

The Rapture awaits
