Will all the Vita haters please shut up!

PS VITA (PlayStation Vita)

The PlayStation Vita has garnered a lot of hate over the past couple of months – some of it is deserved but a lot of it is not.

Yes, we all know the Vita should have globally launched before Christmas and possibly with a smaller price and without 3G as it is stupid idea. And, we all know that the sales have been close to atrocious in its home country of Japan.

But I promise there is something good to talk about.

We all know that the Vita is not doing so well in the eastern markets but it is of my opinion that we shouldn’t all spell doom and gloom for the Vita just yet.

Here’s why:

Retro Video – Five embarrassing and hillarious E3 press conferences

I found these videos in the archives and thought you’d get a few laughs out of them.

First up is this stitch-together of Sony‘s E3 2006 press conference announcing the Playstation 3 and the PSP. It makes Sony look like a bunch of fools. Very funny.

The Wii U is coming out second half of 2012 – big blunder or smart move?

Wii U controller!!!

As we all know, the next generation of consoles is  just around the corner! The first of the new breed that we will see will be the Nintendo Wii U (unless of course you count the PS Vita).

The Wii U was first shown at E3 2011 – or, should I say, the controllers were shown at E3 – which lead to some confusion that the Wii U was just a tablet (like the iPad). This of course is thankfully not the case.

We now know that the Wii U is set to release in the second half of 2012, which may or may not have been earlier then the big N wanted to. This is possibly in response to Sony releasing the aforementioned Vita and the high probability that Microsoft and Sony must are surely working on their next consoles and planning to release them fairly soon.

But is it a good idea to release a console a head of schedule?

Last second Christmas ideas for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners

English: XBox 360 wired controller. Français :...

We all know that buying Christmas gifts for the person that seems to already have everything can be hard, so we’ve decided to help.

In order to make this list useful, there are some glaring omissions. The biggest of them all is the massively popular Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Discarding the fact that I’m personally not a fan of the Call of Duty series, the reality is the fact that pretty much everyone who likes first person shooters already owns that game. You don’t want to be the one who buys someone something that they’ve already got, right?

At the time there wasn’t much info available on the title. However, this December we now know a bit more – including how it looks and some of what’s available in game.

More after the jump.
