He said in a recent interview that the problem with the PlayStation Vita isn't that it's a poorly constructed device, but rather that it just isn't being executed properly. Nintendo certainly isn't one to suggest handheld game systems are on the way out, but there is a right way and a wrong way to do it.

Toyota Scion iQ buyers get free PlayStation Vita

In what is quite an unexpected promotion and one that is not really likely to drum up excitement for the Toyota Scion iQ or the PlayStation Vita, Toyota is now giving customers who buy the world's smallest four seater a free Vita as soon as they close the sale.
