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!

  1. I disagree, Vita hasnt even been around a year yet. I seem to remember the ps3, 3ds and even the xbox 360 being really slow to take off. Give it time. Get to the end of this year and we will have loads off stuff to play. Lets face it even if our not a call of duty fan its gunna bring on some sales for the vita! More sales means more developers joining the ps vita train. 2013 will be Vitas year!

  2. how can there be comments from 2012 on a 2014 Release Page?

    1. It used to be the 2012, then 2013 schedule, just keep shunting the old games off the top.

  3. Do you need a FIFA World Cup 2014 schedule & live score update apps? I got Football World Cup 2014 Schedule & Live Score update apps. It is very nice apps. Its totally free for Android user!

  4. I been watch trailer for Samurai Warriors 4, game then interesting, and will try it soon :D

  5. football manager 2015?

  6. that's wonderful new to bring about PS Vita Release Schedule thanks for share this wonderful post.

  7. Do you believe that pro gamers are the same as pro athletes? Should esports be considered and taken more seriously like traditional sports or are they more like games such as chess?
