Sony is hoping to rebound after its launch of the Playstation 3 did not live up to expectations. The PS3 was priced way too high, and like any other brand new system, there was little to no game support at the time to justify the hefty price tag. Read moreRead more

Playstation Vita Review & Launch Event

This past Friday I got the opportunity to attend the Playstation Vita launch party in Toronto.

The event gave us the opportunity to play with the Vita hands on, and these are my first impressions of it. Read moreRead more
