Sony executives stand up for struggling PS Vita

Sony executives stand up for struggling PS Vita

It isn't exactly a secret that the PlayStation Vita has been struggling ever since it launched earlier this year. Though it's hard to get exact numbers out of Sony, weekly sales charts from Japan and monthly sales charts from NPD here in America don't paint a pretty picture - the Vita keeps slipping while the Nintendo 3DS is posting some sky-high numbers on occasion. It's kind of funny in a way, seeing as how the 3DS had the exact same problem as the Vita after its own launch, but that's another discussion for another time.

Ubisoft: Desmond’s Assassin’s Creed days are numbered

Ubisoft: Desmond’s Assassin’s Creed days are numbered

We've seen quite a few Assassin's Creed releases since the first one hit shelves back in 2007, and even though we've met a lot of different characters along the way, one thing has remained the same: modern-day assassin Desmond Miles is constantly featured throughout the series. That may not be the case for much longer, however, as Assassin's Creed 3 creative lead Alex Hutchinson tells Polygon that the Desmond story line has to wrap up sooner or later, presumably with the series continuing after Desmond's tale has come to an end. According to Hutchinson, the Assassin's Creed series risks losing "resonance" with fans if Desmond's over-arcing story line continues on for too much longer.

PS Vita gets old-school summer with PSOne gaming

PS Vita gets old-school summer with PSOne gaming

If you’re a fan of Sony’s products then there’s some good news out of Japan: the next software update for the PS Vita, 1.80, will add the ability to play classic PSOne titles. Around 700 titles will be available to play, which isn’t a bad haul at all, but they’ll see staggered releases. We imagine being able to play Tomb Raider or Final Fantasy VII on the go will appeal to quite a few gamers.

Treyarch doesn’t even know who’s developing Black Ops on Vita

Treyarch doesn’t even know who’s developing Black Ops on Vita

As part of Sony's all-encompassing push to prove the PlayStation Vita's relevance at last month's E3 trade show, it made sure to mention that a special version of Call of Duty: Black Ops would be making its way to the portable console. However, aside from a brief tease, we didn't learn much about the game. But we can't feel too bad, because apparently even the company that's in charge of the Call of Duty franchise doesn't know much.

But until that happens, Sony wants to ensure that augmented reality gets all the credit it deserves, and has just launched a new game for the PlayStation Vita that turns the player's surroundings into part of the experience.
