Sony's pre-E3 conference started off on the right note, with President Jack Tretton apologising to gamers and fans for "the elephant in the room". By addressing that bit bright and early, the stage was set for the NGP to finally be revealed properly. The codename was lifted, the lights dimmed and Kazuo Hirai officially named the PlayStation Vita as the follow-up to the PSP.
Coming in the next year or so is a new action RPG called Ruin, as well as a collection of PS3 favourites making the leap to the Vita. ModNation Racers looks very cool indeed, and it should be no surprise that everybody's favourite mascot - SackBoy from LittleBigPlanet would also be popping up in portable mode in the not-so-distant future.

I like video games and music and cups of tea and noodles and beagles and colour-cycling LEDs.
