Posted 18 February
Like an expecting father updating his facebook status before a dash to the hospital, this is my last PlayStation.Blog recap before we welcome a new addition to the PlayStation family: PS Vita. After talking about it for what seems like so long, I can’t wait to see PlayStation Vita in the hands of real gamers.
If you’re one of those twitterers then please let us know the moment you grasp your new console using the hashtag #gotmyvita. We want to see pictures of you in the shop queue, first impressions of your launch game, YouTube videos of you unboxing your new console and barely discernible exclamations of joy. On launch day I’ll be pulling all of this into a special blog post that will curate all of the PS Vita chatter and join in the discussion.
Until then, here’s your recap.
