New Vita, PS3 RPG from former Atlus devs coming soon

Rumor time. But this one is a good one, and likely a solid one. Something-something Dimension is all we have, thanks to a source that is holding off on full details, which are set to drop in a couple of days. But we do know t...

Welp, here's your exciting video game news! Lots and lots of fun things, like Nintendo's financial problems, [obvious] lack of plans to move into mobile games, a single Super Smash Bros. screen, and the rumored new console,"Fusion." Microsoft, meanwhile, is in hot water over secretly paying Machinima partners to say nice things about the Xbox One. Alienware's Steam Machines will be un-upgradeable AND annualized, oh boy! Resident Evil 4 is coming out for PC in HD, Sony's got some great Playstation Plus deals, the Candy Crush Saga guys have copyrighted the word "Candy," Disney has abandoned copyrights for Star Wars 1313, and there's a sexy new Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes action figure.

Capcom responds to Monster Hunter 4 Vita rumors photo
Capcom responds to Monster Hunter 4 Vita rumors
by Chris Carter

Monster Hunter 4 is no doubt going to be a massive win for the 3DS. The combination of traction Nintendo's handheld already has, along with the massive install base, and the incredible success of the Monster Hunter series is great news for Nintendo.

Naturally, Sony would love to get their hands on it and sell some Vitas. Recently, a rumor surfaced saying this very thing was the reason for the 3DS delay and that Capcom was developing a Vita version in tandem with the 3DS.

That is, until Capcom Senior Vice President Christian Svenson had something to say about it: 

I would not believe everything you read on the internet. It will set you up for disappointment or misdirected frustration.

Take that as you will, but to me, it feels like a soft "not happening." In my opinion, the Vita needs this. If it can't get a massive system selling game pretty soon, I don't know what to think.

So reason for MH4 delay is Vita port? [Capcom Unity]

Rumor: Details on Sony's Smash Bros inspired brawler

The rumors about a Smash Bros.-style 4-player fighting game featuring Sony mascots have been floating around since at least 2008. I've never taken any of them seriously. Still, when some particularly thought provoking bulletp...

PlayStation Vita to launch on October 28? photo
PlayStation Vita to launch on October 28?
by Dale North

An ad from Blockbuster in the UK says that both Vita models for European release on Friday, October 28th. That's waaaay before the rumored early 2012 date. Was Sony trying to pull a fast one on us, or is this Blockbuster ad fake?

You can see a copy of the ad that we nabbed from IGN UK in our gallery. It looks legit. They hit up Sony for a comment and only got back that we would see a "phased global release" this holiday season. October is kind of holiday-ish, isn't it? That would certainly make for a Happy Halloween for me. 

Beating the Christmas shopping season would make for happy holidays for Sony as well. Between this and the recent release for Supremacy MMA listing a fall release for Vita, it looks like I had better start saving up my blogger money!

Rumor: Sony NGP to be called PlayStation Vita
by Jim Sterling

We're a week out from E3, but that doesn't mean the rumors have to stop just yet. According to a supposed E3 fact sheet, Sony's PSP successor, codenamed NGP, is going to be known as the PS Vita. 

Yes, it sounds like something you'd call a bottle of overpriced posh water. 

Sony's E3 press conference is going to happen on June 6, where it's expected we'll get the final look and name of this thing. Sit tight until then!
