PS Vita fully hacked to support homebrew and emulators

With the prevalence of mobile gaming and then the focus on VR, both PC and console based, it seems that the biggest casualty in the gaming world are the handhelds. To add insult to injury, the PlayStation Vita, and especially the PS Vita TV, a.k.a. PlayStation TV, hasn't really been given that much love by Sony of late. It still has, however, its share of loyal owners who are more than happy to extend the use of their handhelds. Luckily for them, at least for the most adventurous ones, there now exists an easy to use hack that opens the door to more content, legit or otherwise.

World of Final Fantasy brings cute to PS4, Vita in October

World of Final Fantasy brings cute to PS4, Vita in October

The Final Fantasy series is popular mostly for its gripping story lines and memorable characters, no matter the visual form they come in. Whether it be the small, pixelated graphics of NES/SNES titles, the blocky 3D bodies of Final Fantasy VII, or the near realistic visuals of more recent installments, fans have flocked to Final Fantasy titles no matter what. Square Enix is probably banking on that loyalty when it launches "World of Final Fantasy", which will almost be hard to take seriously because of how adorable the characters look.

Square Enix to bring diorama-esque Hitman Go to PC, PS4, Vita

Square Enix to bring diorama-esque Hitman Go to PC, PS4, Vita

For gamers, the Hitman franchise has always been about stealthily killing your adversaries and targets. Usually, these types of games took on a real-time first person perspective to add to the atmosphere of an anxiety and excitement. But in early 2014, Square Enix turned what was then its newest Hitman title on its head and slapped it on what is best described as a pretty board game. Perhaps riding on the fanfare surrounding the upcoming Hitman title, the game publisher will be taking Hitman GO from mobile to your PC and favorite console or handheld.

Hack makes PS Vita TV compatible with more PS Vita games

Hack makes PS Vita TV compatible with more PS Vita games

The PlayStation TV, or PS Vita TV in some markets, may not be one of Sony's most loved gaming hardware. Although it bears the name and some of the traits of the PS Vita, it is a set-top box more than a handheld. Even more, despite being compatible with a number of PS Vita games, the mini console doesn't support more, even those that perhaps make sense on the device. Fortunately, thanks to a simple hack posted on HackInformer, some of those games and apps might not be available for the PS TV.

PS Now finally comes to the PS Vita, God of War III in tow

PS Now finally comes to the PS Vita, God of War III in tow

Sony is slowly, very slowly, but also very surely, expanding the coverage of its game streaming platform. Almost a month after it has flipped the switch for, rather ironically, some of Samsung's Smart TVs, Sony is now enabling PlayStation Now on its own portable and TV devices, namely, the PS Vita and the PS TV. Of course, it wouldn't be much fun if that's all that Sony has in store in its announcement. It has also expanded the lineup of games available on PS Now to include, among other things, the gory God of War III.

Sony to axe PS Vita Maps, near, YouTube apps

It seems like Sony is putting to rest a few of its services, probably much to the dismay and even worry of its customers. Hot on the heels of an announcement that will swap out its Music Unlimited service for a Spotify-powered PlayStation Music, the tech giant is now announcing the impending shtudown of two PS Vita apps, Maps and YouTube. It isn't saying exactly why it is doing so and, in at least one case, isn't offering a replacement.

PlayStation 4, PS Vita launching in China January 2015

The Xbox One might have had the crown this recent holiday season, but Sony's consoles are getting ready to take on a completely fresh and potentially huge market next month.

Sony just finished its standalone PlayStation Experience media event in Las Vegas this weekend, and it unloaded a ton of teasers on gamers. Not all of them good, unfortunately. But if you weren't keeping tabs on the press conference, you need not fret as there is plenty of time to catch up before the games hit stores next year.
