PS Vita Version 3 - Third time lucky?

Have you recently heard rumblings a new version of the PS Vita handheld could be in the works? While only a few diagrams have appeared, the validity of which are highly questionable, it got me thinking that maybe a third version of the Vita could be third time lucky for Sony. Here's how they could turn things around.

Of course, the Vita's 'success' so far is a divisive topic. Gamers expecting a handheld that pumped out AAA titles like Uncharted: Golden Abyss on a regular basis feel understandably short-changed as Sony and third-party developers never really supported the Vita with any true ambition.

On the other hand, the PS Vita has been a treasure trove for fans of niche Japanese titles, with interactive novels and JRPGs in particular blossoming. Indie studios have also done well with the Vita and many titles have benefitted from being included in the Instant Game Collection's monthly updates with PlayStation +. In regards to that last point though, many of those titles have also been cross-buy and played on the PS3 or PS4 instead.

PS Vita Version 3 - Third time lucky?

If the rumours of a third version of the PS Vita (or PS Vita 3000) turn out to be true though, it would appear that Sony aren't content to see the handheld's legacy to be one only fondly remember by niche connoisseurs.

Arcade Classics are the PSN Deals Of The Week

This week's PSN deals on PS4, PS3 and Vita are all about Arcade Classics, including legendary titles from Capcom and Bandai Namco.

First off, though, the Telltale Game Collection is currently £32.99 on PS4. Not exactly an arcade classic but we're not complaining.

Meanwhile, on PS3, you can grab masterpieces like Golden Axe, Final Fight, Metal Slug and Daytona USA for peanuts, while the brilliant Pac-Man Championship Edition DX is also slashed down to size. PSP and Vita fans can also enjoy loads of PlayStation classics from Ridge Racer to Tekken. As always there are extra discounts available for PSN+ members, so be sure to check out our PlayStation + deals guide for the best prices!

We reckon the highlight is probably the Namco Fighter Collection, which includes Soul Calibur V and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 for just £7.00.

Titan Souls Review | Dislike A Boss

I really, really want to like Titan Souls.

Billed as a cross between Shadow Of The Colossus and Dark Souls but more like a ruthlessly-filleted 2D Zelda compilation, you'll battle a series of enormous bosses with a single arrow and one sole hit point. You'll learn attack patterns, discover weak points and die dozens if not hundreds of times, living for the moment when your bow hits home and your adversary crumbles before you. Before scuttling off to the next arena and the next tougher leviathan.

It feels a little like Acid Nerve are making up for some of the terrible boss battles we've suffered over the years -- from Human Revolution to RAGE -- and are trying to restore the balance in one streamlined package.

Titan Souls Review | Dislike A Boss

So it's odd, then, that I can't stand it. Titan Souls may be based on a razor-sharp gameplay concept, brainstormed over a game jam and developed into a full release, but it's been stretched to near breaking point in the process.

PREVIEW | J-Stars Victory VS+ is a right royal anime rumble - and a crossover for the ages

J-Stars Victory VS+ is one hell of a crossover. Starring a huge cast of Shonen Jump manga and anime royalty, it's custom-designed to answer some age old fan questions in utterly insane two-on-two bouts. Who would win in a fight: Monkey D. Luffy or Naruto? The cast of Bleach or the Saiyan of Dragon Ball? What would happen if Toriko and Assassination Classroom fought to the bitter end?

The answer depends entirely on your skills as you smash foes through buildings and brawl across expansive 3D stages with the same superhuman abilities we love from their respective series, putting the Kamehameha up against the Hokuto Hundred Crack Fist. Though originally released exclusively in Japan, us Western otaku will finally be able to get involved with J-Stars Victory VS+, which is set to release this summer on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita.

Now that I've sampled the latest PS4 build, I'm happy to that that it's coming along nicely... and also thrilled that Fist Of The North Star's long-suffering Kenshiro should finally star in a game that's worth a damn!

Super Time Force Ultra will let you play as Shuhei Yoshida, Galahad & more on PS4

Super Time Force Ultra will let you play as Shuhei Yoshida, Galahad & more on PS4

We absolutely loved Super Time Force when it released on Xbox One as a timed-exclusive. It "delivers the depth of Braid with the intense SHMUP satisfaction of an old-school run and gunner," I wrote in our 9/10 review, "letting you assemble a ridiculous army of skateboarding dinosaurs and Uzi dolphins by abusing time paradoxes. Something we don't get to write often enough."

However, exclusivity is fleeting and Super Time Force Ultra will be launching on PS4 and Vita soon as a cross-buy title. There'll be plenty of upgrades and new content, but diehard Sony fanatics will be thrilled to learn that some new characters will also be joining the fray.

Namely Shuhei Yoshida himself, flanked by The Order: 1886's Galahad and the robed figure from Journey! Great news for Galahad, of course, because he'll finally be in a game that's worth buying at full price. Trailer and details below.

PREVIEW | One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 is the most fun you can have with your hat on

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 is going to be fun. Properly, ridiculously, outrageously, magnificently good fun.

How could it not be? As we learned with Pirate Warriors 2, Eiichiro Oda's outlandish characters and the irrepressible personality of the series are a perfect fit for the glorious chaos of the Dynasty Warriors template, allowing us to pulverise hundreds of hapless goons with the same barmy attacks and superhuman abilities we love in the anime.

PREVIEW | One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 is the most fun you can have with your hat on

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 is going to push that fusion of personality and pulverisation even further on PC, PS3, PS Vita and PS4, adding both new fan-favourite characters, new mechanics, a new storyline and features into the formula while upping the ridiculous factor. Having tested the latest PS4 build and spoken to Executive Game Director Hisashi Koinuma, I can honestly tell you that it was the most fun I've had in ages.

You could even describe it as... "SUUUUUUPER!" But I won't. But it is, at least, so long if the preview build is a taster of things to come.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 uses the power of the PS4 to double the number of on-screen enemies

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 is set to be fantastic fun. Having played it at Bandai Namco's Level-Up 2015 event last week, I can personally attest to the fact that its ridiculous combat, insane attacks, new gameplay features and anime-inspired visuals left a massive grin on my face. Stay tuned for our full preview later today.

It's coming to PC, PS3 and PS Vita, but Executive Game Director Hisashi Koinuma told me that they've been using the power of the PS4 for more than just shinier visuals when it comes to the current-gen console version.

The EU PlayStation Store updates every Wednesday, and today is no exception. However, it's on course to be an exceptional haul.

In terms of new releases, Stealth Inc 2: A Game Of Clones, RIDE and Tower Of Guns are all worth checking out (we've linked to our reviews, so click away!), but today marks the first time that Bastion has ever been available on PlayStation platforms.

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd is now just £15 on Vita

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd is a fantastic rhythm game starring of the most iconic vocaloids on the planet. You can now buy it for just £15.00 on PS Vita, which is one of the cheapest prices we've ever seen.

"Project Diva F 2nd ups the challenge and delivers a seriously intense rhythm experience," I wrote in our 8/10 review. "A diverse setlist, exceptional Vita visuals, satisfying gameplay and plenty of unlockables make for a must-play if you enjoyed the original, though newcomers should start there."

Get it on Vita over at Rice Digital. Alternatively, the PS3 version is also available at the same price, but we reckon it's best experienced on a handheld.

These great yet overlooked JRPGs are the real stars of the PlayStation Easter Sale

The PlayStation Easter Sale is now live, but it's a bit of a free-for-all that's burying some absolutely fantastic bargains. Especially, it turns out, for a host of brilliant niche JRPGs that weren't even mentioned on the PlayStation Blog.

Having reviewed all of them, however, we'd like to shine the spotlight on what we'd consider to be the highlights, and explain exactly why they deserve your attention.

Tales Of Hearts R | £19.99 (Vita)

These great yet overlooked JRPGs are the real stars of the PlayStation Easter Sale

"Tales Of Hearts R is a fantastic handheld RPG and one of the most impressive remakes of recent years. Expect a top-quality JRPG experience from start to finish, even if it's a touch familiar in parts." - 8/10 review

Tears To Tiara 2 | £15.99 (PS3)

These great yet overlooked JRPGs are the real stars of the PlayStation Easter Sale

"Tears To Tiara 2 is nearly crushed under the weight of its sluggish opening act, but once it gets going, this fascinating SRPG hits a unique groove. Great turn-based tactics, superb characters and surprisingly accurate Punic Wars setting make for a rough little diamond that deserves your attention.

If you have the time and patience to spare, Tears To Tiara 2 could well be one of this year's left-field highlights." - 7/10 review

Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters Review | Something Strange In Your Neighbourhood

Visual novels are becoming increasingly popular here in the West thanks to the hard work of international publishers and their valiant localisation teams, bringing us text-heavy narrative experiences that hinge around characters, story and 'talking heads' presentation. Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters is one of the best I've read since the first Danganronpa, but it also attempts to inject more interactivity into the typically passive genre with tactical turn-based battles and frequent dialogue choices.

To be honest, I really wish it didn't. We'll get to that later.

The story is the crux of any great visual novel, and Tokyo Twilight tells an absolute corker. Arriving as a new transfer student to a Tokyo high school, you're free to create your own persona (note the small 'p' before you get too excited!) down to name, favourite pastime and even blood type before settling down to classes. However, it doesn't take long before you end up conscripted into a paranormal organisation with a few classmates, pursuing a career as a freelance ghostbuster. Who you gonna call?
