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!

Sir Clive Sinclair proves there's still a portable market

Fully funded within a day on Indiegogo, Sir Clive Sinclair - godfather of the UK home computer market - has proven there's still appetite and room for portables. His new Vega Plus packs in a 1,000 Spectrum games with more available for free to create a deeply nostalgic portable gaming system.

Quite why they don't just release the software for the Vita and 3DS, rather than charge £100 for the bespoke unit makes it sound like a vanity project. But, hey - the guy has earned it. Along with all the Android handhelds, it suggests there's still a booming portable market for the right kind of device.
