PlayStation users in the US are about to have the option of buying a slimmer, lighter handheld console. Sony announced Monday that its redesigned PlayStation Vita is coming to North America this spring.
The Wi-Fi PCH-2000 series console will come bundled with the first-person role-playing Borderlands 2 game, six downloadable content packs, and an 8GB memory card. The whole shebang will cost $199.99. For now, the console will only come in the color black in the US.
"The new PS Vita Wi-Fi model is approximately 20 percent slimmer and 15 percent lighter than the original version, with rounded … Read more
As the Sochi Winter Olympics officially kick off this week, we're checking out some of the same technology Olympic organizers are relying on to generate snow at a resort in Lake Tahoe. These automated snowmaking systems (some of which can even be operated from a mobile phone) are making it easier and more efficient to make snow when Mother Nature doesn't want to cooperate.
Prizefight is also back at it with an epic rematch between the Roku 3 and third-generation Apple TV. It's been a year since their previous duel and both Editors' Choice streaming boxes have … Read more
I've been hearing it since the new year: "There are no games to play!"
Sure, we seem to have found ourselves in a bit of a lull when it comes to the big blockbuster video game. When I posted what I felt were 2014's most anticipated titles, I may have overlooked the fact that the beginning of 2014 was a bit on the light side for games.
Wrought with guilt that I may have in someway performed a disservice to you fine people, I felt compelled to compile a short list of interactive software worthy of your hard-earned income. The best part? Most of these titles are significantly cheaper than the $60 you're probably used to paying for a shiny new game.… Read more

Sony is trying to give its PlayStation Vita handheld a shot in the arm with a new Slim version. The fresh, slender games machine is already out in Japan, but is making its way to the UK on February 7.
Available to preorder now, the PS Vita Slim is, as the name suggests, smaller than its forebear. That's not where the changes stop, however, as Sony has swapped out the Vita's OLED screen for an LCD panel. It will be interesting to see how that changes image quality, so stay tuned for a side-by-side comparison in our full … Read more
Sony is set to unveil something radically slim at the end of the month, according to an invitation received by IGN Friday.
Though a PlayStation 4 overhaul would certainly shake up the industry, it wouldn't exactly be a practical move for Sony, leading many to conclude that the announcement is likely regarding a wider release of the company's PlayStation Vita PCH-2000, the ultraslim model it rolled out to Japan and Asia last fall.
"Following the biggest launch in PlayStation history, join us for an introduction to the slimmest," the invite reads, setting the date at January … Read more
Will 2014 be the year when next-generation consoles hit their stride? The following 12 months after a console launch are always very telling, but for now all we can do is wait.
Putting the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 aside, there's still plenty of gas left in the tanks of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. We're still very much in the middle of their respective golden ages, and a lot of the games on this list will see releases on those platforms as well.
If there's anything I've learned from doing this list for the … Read more
