The PlayStation Vita is finally part of the PlayStation family again and is no longer the black sheep. Where the Sony handheld got little to none exposure during the TGS, E3 and Gamescom conferences of the last couple of years, today the PS Vita took the center stage.
Long live the Vita
The Vita is dead, long live the Vita! A lot of people considered Sony’s handheld a dead and in all honesty, the treatment of Sony was getting a little bit sad. Finally Sony announced during the PlayStation Experience keynote a lot of new games. Oh, and a little reminder to Sony. This was not a keynote, this was a conference. In a keynote one person has a very long monologue, which this was not.
