The E3 YouTube channel messed up and accidentally posted a Cyberpunk 2077 trailer, so it looks like that's confirmed for E3. :pac

Been a long road, etc. I feel like 2077 has been in development at CD Projekt Red for longer than The Witcher has been popular. (Maybe now people in the cyberpunk tag on tumblr will have more than just two pieces of art and screencaps from one ancient teaser trailer to repost endlessly for another five years.) (lol yeah right)

Yikes. This looks... good?

It's coming from Avalanche, which explains the Just Cause/Mad Max-ness of it, plus it ain't too much of a stretch to get a little Far Cry feeling from the open world FPS stuff and/or maybe a little Borderlands from the setting, minus the art style.

I really like the sound of all those things blended together and it doesn't really seem terribly connected to the first Rage which I guess is fine 'cause it's all-but forgotten at this point.

In other pre-E3 news, STALKER 2 of all things just got announced with a 2021 release date, so that's pretty wild and welcome news for a super specific group of people.

If you didn't already think the Vita was dead before, it's officially dying now.

To be fair, I like mine, but the person who retweeted this article that I found on Twitter is correct- most of us who even have one haven't touched it since P4:Golden or P4:DAN. I was hoping to get the Vita versions of the P3 and P5 dancing games if they ever get a US release announcement at all, and there's still a chance, considering cart production won't end until early 2019 (or there could be a digital option) but I almost wonder if this is part of why we haven't heard about a US release for these games yet- maybe they're waiting on Japanese sales stats to see if they still want to release on both consoles or just PS4 only over here.

Sucks because there are a few Vita games on my to-play list, but the prices are fairly high so I've been putting them off. Now it makes sense- fewer copies available/niche market.

Since digital releases will continue for a while some of that stuff could still find its way out west (or just go PS4 only) but yeah, the end of physical game production (and therefore any real retail presence, if such a thing was even still there for the Vita at this point) is pretty much the big death knell after... years of smaller death knells, it feels like.

Vita got some love over the years as an indie games platform, and, uh, questionable anime visual novel wankery I guess, but with Steam offering all the same stuff easier and cheaper and the Switch emerging as the new hotness for portable digital indies there's kinda nothing left for the Vita unless you're one of the six people on Earth who uses it for PS3/PS4 remote play for whatever weird raisin.

It was a great piece of kit, far better than the PSP, but Sony never knew what they were doing with it.

In case you guys missed it, PS Plus is ending PS3 and Vita free games in less than a year. I think it's April of next year?

Edit: "Starting next year on March 8, 2019, the PS Plus monthly games lineup will focus on PS4 titles and no longer include PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita titles."

Ugh, lame. I really wish these companies would figure out how to properly maintain their increasingly huge libraries of awesome games.
