Either Christmas has come early or Sony wants to make sure that you'll have some extra spending money when the holiday shopping season is in full swing, but there's a brand new promotion happening on the PlayStation Network.
The PS Vita is a fantastic piece of gaming hardware, but even a fancy car is just up pile of metal, unless you have someone to drive it. The promise of the full potential of the PS Vita has yet to be seen, but it is slowly being revealed as we learn more about the PlayStation 4. Those sleek new features are all well and good after November 15, but what about right now? Well, right now, you can finally play a triple-A, console-quality FPS on the go on your PS Vita, and see just what Sony's handheld can do. The "Killzone" franchise strikes again as the software that showcases how to push Sony's, and much like "Killzone 2" did for the PlayStation 3, "Killzone: Mercenary" puts the PS Vita through its paces.
Wondering how the recently-announced PlayStation Vita lost some of the heft of the launch version of the Sony handheld? Well, it has to do with reverting from the brighter OLED screen to an LCD screen.
Excited about the Vita TV making its way to the U.S.? Well, Sony's not really thinking about getting the micro-console out to Western consumers any time soon.
Many will agree that the newly designed Vita looks a certain degree sexier than the original model, which is not too shabby to begin with.
But that's not the only reason why many current owners have no immediately plans to trade in their handhelds. There's one major detail that many consider to be a deal breaker: the new model uses LCD and not OLED.
As noted earlier today, Sony just held a pre-Tokyo Game Show presser, and one surprise reveal was a redesigned PlayStation Vita.
Launching later this year in Japan, PCH-2000, will come in various colors, 20% thinner, and 15% lighter.
The first handheld "Assassin's Creed" may be coming to consoles, even an image floating around the Chinese forums of A9VG are to be believed.
