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!

PlayStation Now subscription service arrives, £12.99 a month

Ahh, the real reason why Sony doesn't like backward compatible consoles - so it can sell us all those old games yet again. At least PlayStation Now finally comes with a sensible subscription figure, rather than being charged per game for a limited  and pointless period.

I'll be tempted to give this a try, but for now given the vagaries of the Vita's appalling WiFi speeds and the fact the library seems to assume no one ever got a PS3, I'll wait until there's something more interesting to play, that isn't already on my Vita.

I won't complain about the price, given the back-end grunt this service must need, but suspect Sony will put out some offers to get people interested soon enough.
