Contributed By CJ   A little while ago Sony unveiled the Vita TV and surprised everyone. A slice of Sony’s latest handheld which hasn’t set the world on fire sales wise, yet has an army of very passionate fans. I picked one up a few months back and have really enjoyed it. Not just for stuff like Persona 4 – which looks superb – the cross-play stuff I’ve already bought on PS3, but for those beautiful little gems from PS1 [...]

Upon arriving at EventCity, Manchester: I was nearly sucked into a gaming cyclone as swarms of people [...]
