REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

PlayStation Vita Buyer's Guide

Posted on Friday, February 3 @ 16:40:00 Eastern by
Sony's PlayStation Vita launches this month, meaning there's going to be a ton of new games and accessories, plus the hardware itself, that you'll have to pony up the dough for. Let GameRevolution take you on a guided tour of everything you need so your day one handheld experience is the best it can possibly be.


So you've preordered a PlayStation Vita.... Wait-- YOU HAVEN'T?! GET ON THAT RIGHT NOW! Seriously, there are a few awesome preorder deals, including Sony's PlayStation Vita First Edition Bundle:

PlayStation Vita First Edition Bundle: ... includes PlayStation Vita 3G/Wi-Fi Hardware, 4GB Memory Card, Little Deviants Game, Special Edition Case, 250 MB DataConnection Pass, and free PSN Game Download, and get your PlayStation Vita a week early.
$349.99

PlayStation Vita 3G Launch Bundle: ... includes PlayStation Vita 3G/Wi-Fi Hardware, 8GB Memory Card, 250 MB DataConnection Pass, and free PSN Game Download.
$299.99

PlayStation Vita Wifi: ... PlayStation Vita Wi-Fi Only Hardware.
$249.99


Why do two out of three Vita bundles include Memory Cards? Because Sony's proprietary memory cards are an absolute essential to getting everything out of your PlayStation Vita. It can be a little disappointing that in this modern word of flash storage and internal hard drives, the Vita takes a step back, but you can't blame the electronics giant for combatting piracy any way they can.

Memory cards will store your game saves and any games you download, which includes full retail PlayStation Vita titles you download from the PS Store, as well as PSN games and DLC. Here's the rundown of options--we recommend you go with a larger card since space will fill up fast if you're also storing music and movies for on the go entertainment.

4GB: $19.99 -- 8GB: $29.99 -- 16GB: $59.99 -- 32GB: $99.99


If you're dropping this many bills on an expensive piece of electronic hardware, you might consider picking up a few accessories to protect your investment. When you're spending this much on an item with a touch screen, you know you just have to get those screen protectors.

PlayStation Vita Protective Film - Two Pack: If you've got an iPhone or other touch-screen device, you know how gunky and ugly a screen can get after even light play. The Vita's gorgeous screen will certainly be dimenished after a long session of touch screen controls.
$9.99

PlayStation Vita Travel Pouch: There's no way you're fitting this thing in your pocket, and again, you're spending a lot of money. Don't just throw it in your bag to play contact sports with every other device you've got. The travel pouch comes with a compartment for the system's power adapter (5-hour battery life everyone!) and a handful of game cartridges.
$19.99

PlayStation Vita Cradle: If you're going to set up shop and watch movies on the plane or at home, you might want to invest in the cradle so your hands are free to do what they please... like eat greasy food. Once again, screen protectors... seriously.
$19.99

PlayStation Vita USB Cable: Got a bunch of music and movies already downloaded that you'd like to enjoy with the Vita? Get a USB Cable, use it, and be happy.
$14.99
