Let it be forever known: the 70th edition of The Drop marks the debut of PlayStation Vita game releases!

For the past year, PlayStation fans and gamers have eagerly awaited this momentous day, PS Vita will officially arrive stateside and around the globe starting February 15th with the PS Vita First Edition Bundle, and PlayStation Store will spring to life with over 15 PS Vita titles, ready to supply you with hours of insane portable gaming.

On the PS3 side of things, PlayStation's longest-running gaming franchise returns triumphantly with the long-awaited release of Twisted Metal. This Valentine's Day, skip the cliched romantic dinners and give your significant other an experience they won't forget, whether you're sightseeing the dilapidated suburbs of Sunsprings or getting frisky by the polluted waters of Watkyn's Harbor. Join the Clowns, the Dolls (my favorite), the Skulls, or the Preachers... and get ready to bleed!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a Valentine's Day dinner reservation with a hot, curvy and sexy little thing called the PS Vita. Enjoy this week's historic edition of The Drop!
