PlayStation Vita was pretty impressive from a hardware standpoint when it launched, but it has failed to gain much momentum in terms of sales. Sony slashed sales projections for the handheld multiple times in its first year on the market, and third-party support from AAA publishers dissolved almost instantly. Eventually, even Sony pulled support of the handheld. Even so, Vita has been a popular platform for indie developers. Sony President Shuhei Yoshida brought this up recently, stating that there's no shortage of indie games on the handheld, and it's a great platform to play games. Hit the jump for his thoughts.

As many Binding of Isaac: Rebirth fans already know, the Afterbirth DLC is currently being developed, which is said to greatly expand the game's content. In a recent update post on the game's main website, some upcoming features are shown off.

Although it impressed at launch with its hardware and features, PlayStation Vita's sales numbers have been severely underwhelming. Vita launched in Japan in December of 2011 and globally a few months later. In the three and a half years since then, it has only sold an estimated 10 million units. For comparison, Nintendo 3DS has sold over 50 million units. With the hardware underselling, Sony's first-party support for the system has ceased almost entirely.

Even so, Sony has maintained a positive attitude about the handheld, frequently referring to its sales as healthy. Vita recently hit 4 million sales in Japan, its strongest region, and according to Sony Computer Entertainment America CEO Shawn Layden, it sold better than expected in the US last year. Hit the jump for more!

Vita impressed in terms of hardware at its launch, but a thin lineup of games and a high price tag have hampered its sales. Its strongest market by far has been in its home country of Japan, and this past week it eclipsed 4 million units sold in that region. Vita launched in December of 2011, so it took just over three and a half years to hit this mark.

The weekly hardware and software sales numbers for Japan are in, and the newest Rhythm Heaven game on 3DS continues to impress in an otherwise disappointing week. Rhythm Heaven: The Best+ debuted at number one last week, and it held that spot again this week with another 66,416 sales. Return to PopoloCrois and Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition, both new titles, cracked the top five, and Splatoon continues to sell well nearly a month after its release, taking the number three spot.

All of Sony's major pieces of hardware, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita, saw slight sales boosts this week, but overall hardware sales were still very underwhelming, with no Sony hardware cracking 15,000 units. 3DS and Wii U were the top-selling pieces of hardware, but both saw slight drops from last week. Hit the jump for the full breakdown!

This year's E3 was absolutely packed with new game reveals and announcements, as the usual five press conferences was expanded to eight.

Over one hundred new video game trailers have been released, but some stood out more than others, racking up millions of views in just days. Star Wars: Battlefront and the Final Fantasy VII remake in particular are each closing in fast on 10 million views. You can check out the full list by clicking below!

E3 2015 has officially come to a close, with the show floor closing a short while ago; however, the folks in charge of E3 are already planning for next year's expo.

According to a tweet from Geoff Keighley, E3 has been scheduled for June 14th-16th next year; the event will once again be held in Los Angeles in 2016. Next year will likely feature some pretty big announcements, like Zelda U and Nintendo's Project NX.

During today's Nintendo Treehouse Live stream, Treehouse developers and a developer from Image & Form sat down to demo the upcoming 3DS title SteamWorld Heist; Heist is a sequel to SteamWorld Dig, which released in 2013. In this game, players lead a team of character to try to strategize and defeat enemies in a 2D space; it seems similar to Code Name: S.T.E.A.M, except only in two dimensions. The developer of the game also announced that Dig will be releasing on 3DS first this fall, followed later by other consoles.
