The PlayStation Vita has been on store shelves for almost 18 months, in that time the beautiful handheld has been critically praised for its hardware design. The first ever portable console to have dual analog sticks, has proven it is a competent piece of technology. However with a second E3 showing where original games for the system were in short supply, many Vita owners and consumers wanting to purchase the Vita continue to ask. Where are the games?
Sony is focusing on their next generation hardware, but is it at the sacrifice of the Vita itself? Today PlayStation Vita aficionado Jamie Briggs and Vlad Pintea, who has not yet been sold on Sony’s handheld, have come together to speak about Vita’s future.
Does Vita still have a chance to succeed? What needs to be done to sell the hardware? And more importantly, where are the games?
Once again, the Christmas of gaming has fallen upon us in early June. I’m talking about E3 of course. It’s practically a holiday of information for gamers everywhere. Video game developers of all shapes in sizes from locales all over the world gather in Los Angeles to show gamers their goods. One of the enormous sized companies, Electronic Arts (EA), was one of the five big gaming corporations to hold their own press conference. Because EA had a wide range of announcements, we needed two Analog Addiction editors to cover the topics. Today, I, Robbie Key, and Hugh Simmonds are here to discuss everything the ginormous publishing company covered.
First and foremost, the following information hasn’t been confirmed as the official story, characters, or events, which are to transpire in the upcoming open-world action/adventure Mirror’s Edge. These are just a few of the potential events based on the original Mirror’s Edge.
With yet another E3 done and dusted, we all go back to our daily routines and lives and let the announcements of the past few days sink in. However, some reactions are funnier than others. We’re going to have a look at some from one of my personal favourite gems of Twitter, Sony CEO Kaz Hirai, or rather, the parody account in his name.

A couple of months ago, Analog Addiction brought you news that someone, known as Bacteria, had created a 15-in-1 console. It got me thinking about a speculation that shows itself in the game industry every now and then; what would it be like if there was only one console? A console created by a third party, where Microsoft, Sony, and even Nintendo were all just publishers. Would it benefit gamers or would it destroy gaming? With E3 just around the corner, here’s some pros and cons to a ‘universal/ third party’ console.
The Electronic Entertainment Expo is gaming industries Super Bowl, with 2013 providing an greater spectacle showcasing the next generation of gaming.

This will be Analog Addiction’s first major coverage of E3 and the one year anniversary of our existence, so without further ado here are predictions listed below.
