Best news I read today. Vita hardware has a 1600% increase over last month. 56k units were sold in May. I play more Vita, than any platform.

Same here, actually - I spend more time on my Vita than on any other platform. What Thuway doesn't point out is that 1600% of crap is still relatively crappy, and the increase puts Vita in 6th place out of the eight platforms currently on sale, with 56,000 units moved in May. Interestingly enough, the PS4 moved 197,000 (1st place), while the Xbox One did 77,000 (3rd).
Speaking of Vita, today is a great day to hit up the PlayStation Network store if you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber. Next week, Gravity Rush, Uncharted: Golden Abyss and WipEout 2048 will all be leaving the Instant Game Collection. If you're a Plus subscriber but don't have a Vita yet, I strongly suggest you go to the SEN Store and "buy" them at their current "free" price regardless, so you'll have them available if you ever take the plunge (and you should take the plunge). The Vita is easily my favorite platform, currently, and ooh Terraria is free today as well!
Brand-spankin' new on PSN today is Nippon Ichi's 2D sprite-centric action RPG Battle Princess of Arcadias for a cool $30, so that's installing as we speak.
