PSP

Luckily, growing up I had a lot of friends who were either from Japan or were heavily into eastern games -- so the opportunity to play imports, including the coveted Radiant Silver Gun, was always an option.  Gurumi...
Antiques possess a magnetic quality, an appeal to our imaginations, a false nostalgia for a time most of us are too young to remember. There's a comforting allure to these relics. They offer a window into the past, a living h...
Final Fantasy Type-0 HD wasn't on the show floor at PAX last weekend, but Square Enix did show off the action RPG behind closed doors. During our meeting with the publisher, Destructoid touched base with director Hajime ...
[Read on for a description of every God of War game ever released in the US, and my completion of them all in 2013.] 2013 is an exciting year. Now that I know you guys enjoy reading my Quests, I'm going to make an effort to d...

The choice was simple: Go indie or go big. However, over the past console generation, this changed. Now, some indies make more money than major studios, and “going indie” has become a fair bit more difficult th...
We learned a lot about the Wii U at E3 this year, but we didn't learn what is likely to be the defining factor in its success or failure: the price. Recent rumors from reliable sources price it in the $400 range, which could ...
Sony closed out the day with its press conference, and while nothing too crazy was put on display, it was an all-around decent showing. I would've liked to see more Vita titles, personally, but not everything at E3 needs to n...
For a long time, Sony has wanted to bring the console experience to handheld devices, and the PlayStation Vita represents its most successful attempt to date, armed as it is with impressive visual capabilities and a wealth of...

Silent Hill: Book of Memories is to be the series' first foray into the PlayStation Vita, and its dramatic departure from traditional survival horror is proving to be quite controversial. You see, Book of Memories is a top-do...
The day is finally here! Today is the day that North Americans and Europeans get their PlayStation Vita game systems. Today is the day that my bragging rights (two Vitas, all the games) end. Today is the day that I get a bill...
We recently reviewed the PlayStation Vita and had quite a few positive words to say about it. All things considered, the Vita is a great handheld gaming device that hopefully does very well and gets the software support it de...
We have our faces buried in our PlayStation Vita systems, working to bring you reviews of all the launch games set to hit shelves early next week. There are so many of them, and we are trying to play them all at once! Bear wi...
The PlayStation Portable is quite possibly the greatest electronic device that I ever resented. I hated so much about the PSP, and not because I disliked the system -- I absolutely loved it. However, the lack of support from ...
You may have had enough of hanging from glowing ledges, jumping from crumbling floors and narrow escapes from massive explosions, but I can't get enough of the adventures of "Dude Raider" Nathan Drake. I loved all of the PS3 ...
For those wondering if PlayStation Vita owners in the US will get a discounted price for purchasing the digital releases of their games as compared to boxed retail copies (as in Japan), it looks as though that may indeed be t...

While the PlayStation Vita will support PSP games, it does not have a UMD drive. For this reason Sony came up with their UMD Passport program. Through this, you'll be able to register UMD games to get a discounted digital cop...
We kind of thought that the Vita would be region-free, and at E3 we heard some positive news, but now we know for sure. According to 1UP, Sony Computer Entertainment's president of Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida confirmed ...

Good news: The PlayStation Store is back online in North America! Bad news: There's so much new content that was put out all at once that it's simply overwhelming. Not saying it's bad news for the consumer, but it's just a sh...
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 some...
We already told you a bit about Sony's upcoming PSP Remaster ports for PS3 in our Monster Hunter Portable 3rd news item, but we wanted to pass along a few more details on this series of games. Remasters will be PSP titles cus...
Sony Computer Entertainment has just come out and said it: it thinks it's possible that all of your private data may have been obtained. In a recent PlayStation Blog update, Sony says that while its "still investigating the d...
Back when the PSPgo came out it felt like I was the only one excited about it. It was small and sexy. It sold...some. At $250 for what really was a lesser game system that what it was supposed to stand in for, the PSPgo was a...

It's increasingly looking like Sony Ericsson's Android-powered "PlayStation Phone" is legit, despite the firm not revealing the device at this week's Consumer Electronics Show. Why bother, though, when random folks from Chin...
Here it is! The big finale! The climactic closing to our two part awards show special (in case you missed it, here's part one). In this episode we have even more special guest stars, including game developers, game character...

Sony is terrible at keeping secrets. Killzone 3, Resistance 3, the PS3 Slim, the PSPgo, Sony has no end of cats to let out of its bag, and rare is the time we are ever surprised. The PSP2 looks set to continue this trend, wit...
A new study claims that while iPhone and mobile gaming is on the rise, DS and PSP games are treading water, and the water's getting rather putrid. This is all according to Interpret, who states that market data is signalling ...

And before you ask, "duodecim" is "twelve" in Latin. Scans from ever-leaky Japanese game magazines confirm that at least two new characters will be making it into the lineup: Final Fantasy IV's Kain and (unsurprisingly) Final...
Today marks the fifteenth anniversary of the original PlayStation's launch in North America. The little grey system was an absolute phenomenon when it launched in 1995, arguably the first system to take a step toward mak...
