Feeling for a pulse

It’s rare for us to write a story about what wasn’t announced during a PlayStation press conference – after all, we typically have our work cut out just trying to cover what was announced. However, the PlayStation Vita’s complete lack of presence during the Japanese giant’s Gamescom 2014 media briefing today definitely deserves a mention.

Of course, it’s worth stressing that the handheld hasn’t been forgotten entirely: it has a sizeable presence on the showfloor, and received several reveals in the run up to today’s big show. However, we’d pinned our hopes on some kind of Minecraft: PS Vita Edition bundle being announced during the presser, and not even that popped up.

In fact, it was very much a repeat of E3, with the emphasis being on the organisation’s new home console, rather than its flagging portable one. Given the sales numbers, we suppose that that makes sense – but how do you feel about this turn of events? Are you just about ready to give up on the system, or are you still looking forward to upcoming titles? Let us know in the comments below.
