Times are hard, and with smartphones and watches costing hundreds of dollars, each something has to give. Thankfully, that something doesn’t have to be your gaming obsession thanks to Sony and its latest gaming sale. In fact, we would probably say that the word ‘sale’ doesn’t truly do this thing justice. Now ‘price massacre,’ that sounds a little more like it.

Although Sony’s PlayStation Vita has largely been forgotten thanks to the boom in smartphone and tablet gaming along with the PS4’s rise to prominence, the Japanese outfit behind the handheld is still working to improve the experience. Throughout many markets, particularly in Japan, the Vita remains at the fore of the gaming world, and with the Tokyo Game Show about to kick off, Sony has taken the wraps off a new feature that will allow PS4 users to beam gameplay directly to the Vita.

Although the PlayStation 4’s lack of backwards compatibility threatened to spill over into hysteria, Sony promised that Gaikai, a service recently acquired by the Japanese company, would allow gamers to enjoy PlayStation 3 titles via cloud streaming, and now, it has been revealed that the service will also be launched on the PS3 and PS Vita. Although the Vita had been looking like a bit of a dead horse – particularly given the popularity of mobile gaming via smartphones and tablets – its integration with the often record-breaking PS4 could bring a new lease of life to the handheld, and Gaikai support will certainly do its cause no harm.

Those rumors of a PS4 and Vita bundle being made available in the UK were spot on as it turns out, with Sony confirming to Eurogamer that the company will be working closely with retailers in order to offer the new home console alongside Sony’s mobile gaming machine as part of an ‘ultimate bundle.’

Remember back in 1999 when Sony released the bizarre looking PocketStation accessory to accompany the original PlayStation? The creative little device featured an LCD display and was intended to be a combination based product that offered storage and personal digital assistant based functionality. The device never actually managed to see the light of day in the United States or Europe, partly because Sony used all available stock to satisfy demand in Japan and partly because it was killed off after three years. It seems that the PocketStation memory lives on not only in the thoughts of Sony but also in a second-generation form as a native app for Sony’s PlayStation Vita handheld.

OK, it’s been a pretty big day for Sony already, what with the announcement of the newly announced PS Vita 2013, but the Japanese firm isn’t done there. Also announced today, the PS Vita TV is much more than it may first seem, and it’s going to cost around $100 to buy, too.

With its PlayStation 4 due for release in a couple of months, Sony could be forgiven for being a little preoccupied. In fact, we’d even forgive the Japanese firm from almost forgetting all about its portable games console, at least in the short term. At a press conference today though, Sony showed that it’s not just well aware of its portable machine, but is also working to make it as popular as possible.

Sony’s focus must no doubt be on its upcoming PlayStation 4 release in a few short months, but that doesn’t mean that the Japanese firm isn’t keeping an eye on its other product lines at the same time, and its recent announcement of a price drop for the PlayStation Vita is a prime example of that fact.

Despite this, Sony remains determined to plug its handheld marvel, and today, a new firmware iteration brings some much-needed updates. As well as enhanced streaming support, version 2.60 brings some slick alterations to the user interface. Details after the break.

Ever since Apple first brought the iPhone and iPod touch to market five years ago, we’ve seen a very quick shift in how we go about gaming on the move. Throughout the early 2000’s, the battle between the likes of the Nintendo’s DS and the PlayStation Portable (PSP) was as fierce as those devices which had preceded it, but the smartphone and tablet revolution has rendered such standalone gaming machines largely redundant. A GPU performance test carried out by AnandTech indicates just how much the face of the market has changed, with the portable gaming’s most powerful offering – the PS Vita – now out-gunned by Apple’s iPad 4 in terms of graphics power.
