If you’re a gamer in the Joburg area, then you are no doubt aware that Ster Kinekor is having a little party for this new-fangled handheld gadget that they call the PS Vita. There’s going to be quite a few industry faces present there, with the launch being an invite-only affair.

How Geoff and Gavin got invites in the first place is something that I’ll never understand, and due to me being situated somewhere distinctly south and coastal by around a 1000KM, means that I’ll miss out on being there.

Well, that, and I’ve got a ton of work to prep for tomorrow anyway. So who cares if they get to play with fancy new consoles and eat free food, who,sniff cares? I don’t!

In Other News: Nier isn’t ready for Kickstarter, Gearbox wants to be careful with xenomorphs and Barack Obama fights ogres.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post, because I was too busy crying in a shower. Again.
