Last year Sony launched a new “micro-console” in Japan called the PlayStation Vita TV. It was an unbelievably small device that plugged into a TV to play games, watch movies, and listen to music. It was a bit of a shock. The PS4’s launch was just a few months away and the introduction of another new console was a bold, if somewhat confusing, move.

Now, a year later, the Vita TV is being released in Western markets. It is now known simply as PlayStation TV and has received a fresh coat of paint changing it from the original white to a more traditional black.


Hello, everyone! As you might have noticed this past week, The Vita Lounge has a new face! My name is Jessey Nettey and I’ll be bringing you fine ladies and gents more news and reviews than you can shake a PlayStation TV at! I’ll keep this post short, but if you want to know more about me, feel free to take a look at my bio.

Speaking of the PlayStation TV, I’ve been using it as a Senran Kagura box and boy is that game fun. To celebrate the release of the game in North America, we’ve teamed up with XSEED to give away a digital copy to one lucky reader! Sorry EU folk, this code is for NA PSN so you’ll need a North American PSN account to redeem it.

Entering the contest is simple: All you need to do is head to the comments and tell us what your shinovi weapon of choice would be and why! It could be anything from a hammer to a cutting board or even a bowling ball. As Hibari could tell you, anything can be a weapon in the world of Senran Kagura. You have until Thursday night at 10 pm GMT to enter. This post will be updated with the winner’s name Saturday at 2 pm GMT. Have fun and good luck!


“Wait a minute…was that a Doctor Who reference?” I often found myself wondering aloud while playing Muteki Corporation’s latest game: Dragon Fantasy Book II.


In reference to the Day of the Dead and Halloween, the PlayStation Store has a new two-week sale entitled the “Sale of the Dead”. Exclusive to North America, the sale itself is split into two deals, each of which runs for a week. As usual, PlayStation Plus members will receive an added discount on the titles included.

So what will be discounted during this week’s portion of the sale? Well, unfortunately only Dead Nation and Plants VS Zombies. Next week’s deals have quite a few PlayStation Vita compatible PSP games including Corpse Party.
