96w ago - Not to be confused with the upcoming PS Vita, today SCEE's James Gallagher has announced news at Gamescom of a new PSP E-1000 handheld console.

149w ago - Today XSEED Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz has shared a video tour of Ys Seven for PSP and PSPgo handheld consoles.
To quote: Today, our focus will be on the game world as we reveal to you all the Seven Wonders of Ys Seven -- seven locations that help define the game and keep its story moving. So sit back, relax, take in the new trailer and enjoy!
1. Altago City
The centerpiece of the game's story. This is where Adol and Dogi first make landfall in the Altaginian countryside. And, unlike most of the cities they've visited over the years, it does NOT offer them a particularly warm welcome. Still, that doesn't make this trade capital any less impressive!
Not only is the city a real sight to behold, it also includes a sprawling port for some of the largest naval vessels in the world. Its sheer size and magnificence makes it one of Ys Seven's wonders, and its seedy, intricate history makes it a true contender for the #1 spot.
2. Shrine of Origins
Unearthed only recently, this mysterious cave contains artifacts from a distant time, featuring unknown markings. A sense of mystery pervades every last crevasse, and to any travelers who dare traverse its darkened spirals, I can...
179w ago - A few months ago the DSi LL handheld was released in Japan, and today Nintendo confirmed that its European counterpart the DSi XL will be launching across Europe on March 5, 2010.
Press Release: EUROPEAN LAUNCH DATE OF NINTENDO DSi XL CONFIRMED
Get ready to experience your favourite Nintendo DS games like never before - on the big screens and via the wider viewing angle of the Nintendo DSi XL, launching across Europe on 5th March 2010.
