Here's more information about the PS Vita TV:

- Plays PSP, Vita and PS1 games
- Has all the Vita apps for movies, HULU, Netflix etc.
- Runs Vita OS
- 9450 Yen / $100
- Can Remote Play PS4 to another TV if the one the PS4 is connected to is being used.
- Launches in Japan on November 14
- 6cm x 10cm console
- There will a be a $150 bundle for the console + 8GB memory card and a white Dualshock 3.
- Any Vita games that use touch are not compatible. Possibility for updates for those games to make the compatible.

This seems like an amazing device for $100 if you are already invested in Sony or have never bought a PS Vita or don't care about playing games on the go. But, does this mean the death of the PS Vita? Would someone buy a $200 Vita when they can buy this for the home? Did Sony just beat Apple to the punch?

Last year, Sony held its own video game conventions for fans in Las Vegas called the Playstation Experience. There, the company released a bevy of new information regarding upcoming games like No Man's Sky and showed off the first Uncharted 4 gameplay.

Well, as they announced on their official blog Aug. 14, Sony's doing it again.

PlayStation Experience is officially a go for 2015! The epic two-day PlayStation community event is back, relocating to sunny/foggy/windy San Francisco this December 5th and 6th.

What can you expect this year? For starters, a ton of hands-on time with 2015 and 2016's biggest games, plus a front-row seat for major PlayStation announcements. Plus some of those patented PlayStation surprises you've come to expect.



They're even lowering prices a little less than last year, with early bird two-day tickets running $60 while available. Those tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here.

Oooh boy, you lucky Playstation Plus subscribers you. October looks like it's going to have some good games for your Playstation 4.

Incredibly punishing (and incredibly fun) platformer Super Meat Boy and the very charming puzzle game Broken Age will both be free to download for Playstation Plus subscribers Oct. 6.

The Playstation Blog has a few more details:

Super Meat Boy will challenge even the most devoted platforming players with teeth-grinding levels, insane obstacles, horrible traps, and smiling chunks of meat. Yum! Can you stand against the gory onslaught of near-impossible tasks in Super Meat Boy? You'll find out soon enough…

If that's a little too intense, why not point and click at things, instead? Broken Age is joining the PS Plus lineup, too! In it, guide two teenagers through strangely similar circumstances but on two different worlds. With a gorgeous soundtrack and award-winning cast, Broken Age is perfect for gamers that grew up with the adventure genre. Or people that just want to hear some jokes. Jokes are always good.



Although the post says to check the official Playstation page for the free Playstation 3 and Vita games for October, that site has not yet been updated with that information.

Sony wants to give you some variety in your Playstation 4 controllers.

The company announced new color options for the Dual Shock 4 during its Tokyo Game Show keynote address.

Polygon has the details:

The controllers (above) will come in gold, silver and "steel black" beginning Nov. 6, with a clear plastic crystal following on Dec. 3. The launch dates are for Japan; Sony did not give any information for western availability, though the gold and silver controllers have been announced for Europe.

Additionally, the hard drive bay cover for the console itself will get nine color variants on Nov. 6., including gold, silver, red, yellow, purple, and pink. Again, no western launch plans were given there. The faceplates will run ¥2,500, which is about $20.

Finally, a wireless round headset will launch in Japan on Dec. 3, costing ¥12,000, or roughly $100.

From the patent abstract:

A block tool, which can be assembled by a user, is configured with multiple types of blocks and is shot by a camera for capturing a still image or a moving image. The position coordinates of a marker of the square-pillar block in a three-dimensional space are obtained by image recognition. Also, a connecting position and the type of each block, a gradient vector of the square-pillar block, an angle between two blocks constituting the square-pillar block, and the respective blocks' lengths are obtained so as to derive the shape, posture, and position of the block tool, and corresponding information processing is then performed.

During an interview with Game News, Uncharted voice actor Nolan North said he didn't think fans want a movie based around the Indiana Jones-esque series.

North voices and does the motion capture work for the series' protagonist Nathan Drake.

Even if he's wrong, Sony's motion picture division might not be able to get the thing off the ground.

Sony announced a film adaptation of the property back in 2009 and have had a ton of trouble putting it together.

They still don't have a director for it, having courted David O. Russell, Neil Burger, Seth Gordon and more for the project.

And this past August, Sony pushed the release date back to 2017.

So, if you're right Mr. North (and you probably aren't), you won't be disappointed if the film never happens.
