Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, the number of stories is slowing down. Time and developers move on, but I'll always be posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age. Please consider clicking an ad to help my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

PS3 and PS Vita owners getting Cross with each other


Here's Sony press release from E3 about the various cross-over features that the PS Vita and PS3 will enjoy as the two devices become more interlinked. They got a blink-and-you-miss-it mention in the keynote, so here's some more detail.

With the Wii U's tablet and Microsoft's GlassScreen, expect this to become a big theme of most upcoming games. Trouble is Sony must know that huge numbers of PS3 owners are more likely to have an iPhone, Android or tablet, which makes them more practical as a second screen. Anyway, should be picking up a PS3 shortly so should be able to get into this.
