Sony is clearly going all out with the PlayStation Vita, and with good reason. Ever since the PlayStation Portable, or PSP to its friends, went on sale back in late-2004 in Japan and early-2005 everywhere else, the little PlayStation has had a hard life. Missing the dual thumb-sticks that many argued were a necessity in the post-dual shock world and packing an expensive price point, the PSP struggled for years to make a real impact in a market dominated by machines with Nintendo branding on them.
Being third to market with the PlayStation three behind Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Nintendo's Wii undoubtedly hurt Sony, at least in the early days. With gamers already having stumped up the money for the Xbox 360 in particular, Sony's expensive option struggled to gain traction for quite some time after its release. A hugely staggered worldwide release did not help, either.
The wait is finally over - and the 30 million+ COD fans can finally breathe a huge sigh of relief as the world's most anticipated game has finally begun retailing worldwide: Modern Warfare 3.

Sony is still reeling from its many, many hacker-related problems over the last few weeks. It was only yesterday that Sony finally managed to bring its PSN Store back online across the globe and then, as if the universe was trying to really kick them when they just thought things were getting better, the Music arm of Sony found itself on the wrong end of a fresh hacking attempt. But surely all their hard work behind the scenes have made PSN and Qriocity hack-proof, right? Wrong, according to one industry expert.
