Persona 4: Golden is a must-have for the Vita at £14.99

With the price only occasionally dropping from the £20 mark, this deal for Persona 4 is something Vita owners should jump at if they haven't bought it already. Delivering the definitive version of a JRPG classic, Persona 4 offers so much content beyond dungeon crawling that you'll be spending weeks, if not months, going through everything it has to offer. Seriously, if you own a Vita and not this, you're doing it wrong. Thanks to AnimeDude92 @ HUKD!

Be sure to check out our Persona 4: Golden review for more details.

Final Fantasy X/X-2 is a Vita essential and only £17.99

If you have a Vita, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is an essential title for just £17.99.

The Vita version is currently cheaper than the PS3/PS4 version and also gets my vote because of the Vita's handy sleep function, meaning you don't have to keep playing until you reach a save sphere. Being able to level up in small doses works wonders for the game and the Vita version looks absolutely stunning too. FFX has aged wonderfully and offers up huge depth for you to discover all over again or even for the first time if you're really lucky. I've not made it to FFX-2 yet, but Matt's given his verdict in the link above. Be warned Vita owners, the second game comes as a hefty download rather than being on the cartridge.

Lego Hobbit on Vita is a steal at £7.95

Lego Hobbit on Vita is a steal at £7.95

Fancy reliving the Hobbit movies in Lego form and pandering to your obsessive nature over in-game collectibles? Then be sure to pick up Lego The Hobbit on your PS Vita for just £7.95.

The latest Lego effort is one of the more rushed efforts from the overworked Traveller's Tales studio, but it's much more appealing at this price. It's certainly worth a look if you're a series fan. The third film was supposed to be added as DLC when the final film hit cinemas, but has since been cancelled. There's still at least 30 hours of game here if you want to 100% it.

Steins;Gate is worth dusting off the Vita for at this price

It may have a spellchecker-worrying name, but Steins;Gate is one of the best Vita games yet according to Jon's review. Considering it's a new game, we're delighted it's available at such a low price too.

You can see the anime on Netflix right now if you want to find out what all the fuss is about, but Jon heavily recommends going in game-first if you're completely new to the Steins; Gate universe. Be sure to take a look his full review. Or read the short version: "The definitive version of a true modern classic. Steins;Gate presents a truly captivating and uncompromising storyline with exquisite characters, powerful themes and often heartbreaking choices to make. It's a beautiful, essential thing. Making poor choices is easy when you have the power to change the past, but here in the present, make the right choice and buy this astonishing piece of software."

Lego Jurassic World only £17.99 (Vita) or £29.95 (PS4)

Lego Jurassic World only £17.99 (Vita) or £29.95 (PS4)

With the movie still doing the business at the cinemas, there's still a buzz about Lego Jurassic World, so the price isn't dropping so fast on new-gen consoles. But £29.95 is a great deal on PS4 and the Vita version is even more tempting at just £17.99.

There are some infuriating bugs in Lego Jurassic World, especially Trophies not pinging for player two or invisible QTE buttons, but there's well other 30 hours of game here with the inclusion of action from all four movies. Don't expect much innovation, but Telltale have done a great job of giving a Lego makeover to memorable scenes from all the movies. Take a look at my Lego Jurassic World review for more.

Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII and nunn.

No Heroes Allowed: No Puzzles Either! for free on PS Vita

Need a free game?  No Heroes Allowed: No Puzzles Either! is one of the few free-to-play titles on for the PS Vita. Look out for those microtransactions that are begging to make life easier for the impatient amongst you though! With Vita titles being few and far between at the moment (unless you're into JRPGs), this could be worth charging the handheld up for a while.

Attack on Titan coming to PS4, PS3 and Vita

Attack on Titan is an anime favourite around the office here at Dealspwn and we strongly urge you to watch the harrowing series on Netflix. We also strongly urge you to avoid the rather messy 3DS game.

Tecmo Koei and Omega Force are bringing the series to PlayStation though in 2016 and this brief teaser trailer has a cool handdrawn art style that we're hoping is going to be replicated in the final game. Visually, it reminds us of Valkyria Chronicles, but with more blood and despair.

We do feel for any developer working on the Attack on Titan license as the dramatic battles involving a Spider-Man-esque movement system (but with much sharper turns) as hunters try to outmanoeuvre giant Titans in order to attack their weak spots must be incredibly hard to put into action, with the camera alone being a significant obstacle. We wish them luck. Maybe they should take a look at this decent free browser version.

PlayStation TV + 3 games only £35.99

PlayStation TV is now available for £35.99 and this version includes Worms Revolution Extreme, Velocity Ultra and OlliOlli.

PlayStation TV is a neat device that let's you play a selection of Vita games on your TV using a regular sized DualShock controller. What we find especially useful though is the PS4 streaming that is handy for playing your PS4 on a different TV in the house. So perhaps moving your PS4 up and downstairs is set to become a thing of the past? £35.99 sounds cheaper than buying a new PS4 when you inevitably fumble it too. Take a look at Matt's PlayStation TV review.

Thanks to nunn.

Final Fantasy X/X-2 is essential from £17.29 on Vita/PS4

The PS4 version of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is at its cheapest price yet at £21.99. That's a great deal considering many outlets are still charging over £30. Or maybe you'd prefer the Vita version for £17.29.

When we played the PS3 and Vita versions, we found that FFX has aged wonderfully and offers up huge depth for you to discover all over again or even for the first time if you're really lucky. It'll take you ages to finish and it turns out X-2 has aged ok too, despite being a bit unnecessary. We'd opt for the Vita version over the PS3 or PS4 because of the handheld's handy sleep function, but this PS4 preorder is bound to be the best graphics wise.

Killzone: Mercenary is just £7.99 on PS Vita

Killzone: Mercenary has occasionally fallen to £8 or less on PSN, but you can now grab a "like new" physical copy for that sort of price. It's a A superb Vita shooter and a game that I actually scored slightly low in hindsight as I subconsciously compared it to full home console titles!

We said that the game set "a new benchmark for handheld first person shooters" in our Killzone Mercenary review. Thanks to gerardarmstrong5 @ HUKD!

Eyepopping shooter Myriad confirmed for PS4 & Vita

Myriad absolutely blew my mind when I previewed it last year. I described it as "the most drool-inducingly gorgeous videogame I've seen in quite some time," before waxing lyrical about its unique gameplay that lets you create beautiful deadly works of art while you play.

Now we're delighted to report that Myriad is coming to PS4 and PS Vita, where it's set to drop jaws.

Steins;Gate El Psy Kongroo Edition Review | Class Act

"The definitive version of a true modern classic. Steins;Gate presents a truly captivating and uncompromising storyline with exquisite characters, powerful themes and often heartbreaking choices to make."

"It's a beautiful, essential thing." - 10/10 review

What more can I say about Steins;Gate? It's a true modern classic, not just as a videogame or visual novel, but as a work of fiction and a story for the ages regardless of medium. The recent PlayStation Vita and PS3 release delivers the definitive version of this latter-day gem... except that, for true fans, it doesn't.

GAME briefly offered a special edition containing an art book, but Rice Digital are exclusively selling the El Psy Kongroo Edition, which contains a Metal Upa collectible and two pins in a presentation case as well as the aforementioned special edition in its entirety. They kindly sent us a copy to review, and I'm delighted to report that it's one of the most brilliantly-conceived and highly desirable special editions I've ever had the pleasure of covering.

Steins;Gate El Psy Kongroo Edition Review | Class Act

Like the game itself, it's a class act, containing gorgeous replicas that actually mean something rather than the overblown, gaudy and ultimately meaningless nonsense that we're used to from most collector's editions.

The best PlayStation Vita games of 2015 so far - this "legacy platform" ain't dead yet!

People keep telling me that the PlayStation Vita is dead. Hell, even Sony referred to it as a "legacy platform."

I've said it before and I'll say it again: you're wrong!

Now we're halfway through the year, it's the perfect time to look back at an exceptional six months of handheld gaming. Though we've already covered the Top Ten PS4 games of 2015 so far, I had to combine the 3DS and Wii U to bulk out yesterday's list.

The Vita, conversely, can easily carry one all by itself thanks to a range of exquisite localised Japanese titles, cross-play greats and more. Naturally we've linked to our reviews and the best prices on the internet for your convenience.

Steins;Gate

The best PlayStation Vita games of 2015 so far - this "legacy platform" ain't dead yet!

Steins;Gate is a true modern classic, not just as a videogame or visual novel, but as a work of fiction and a story for the ages regardless of medium. You owe it to yourself to pick up Steins;Gate, and when you do, buy it on Vita. The new handheld version is the best of the bunch due to its gorgeously crisp screen and built-in convenience features.

Steins;Gate presents a truly captivating and uncompromising storyline with exquisite characters, powerful themes and often heartbreaking choices to make. It's a beautiful, essential thing. - 10/10 review

Steins;Gate PlayStation Review | Timeless Classic

Steins;Gate is the best visual novel I've ever played.

Read. Experienced. Whatever. It's easy to get hung up on the parlance seeing as visual novels blur the line between books and videogames, reader and player, but it's also completely moot. Not only is Steins;Gate the best visual novel I've ever reviewed (sorry, Danganronpa), but this time-travelling course-correcting masterpiece is almost certainly the finest example of the genre to have ever released.

We already knew that when the PC translation released last year and now Steins;Gate has launched on PlayStation platforms. Does it still hold up? Can it still pack a punch?

You've read the strapline and this review is already shamefully late, so let's drop the pretence and discuss exactly why Steins;Gate is one of the truly essential games of 2015.
