It's a busy time for the Sony PlayStation Vita handheld. Due for release within a week at fine retailers everywhere, our latest book, My PlayStation Vita, is available for immediate pre-order at a great low price (Amazon is only $15.93, for instance, for the paperback, and $9.99 for the Kindle version!). You can use Amazon's look inside feature to get an idea of the great content, or download a PDF of Chapter 5 and the Index, direct from publisher Que. You can think of My PlayStation Vita as the Vita's missing manual, and your friendly guide to all of the powerful handheld's hardware features, apps, games, and overall capabilities.
In addition, today, Sony has brought the best deal in gaming, PlayStation Plus, to Vita owners. For a low monthly, quarterly, or yearly price (which is less than the price of a single game!), PlayStation Plus not only gives you regular discounts on games and game content, but also a selection of free games every month. The best part is these are often full blown retail games or AAA downloadable titles. The first batch of freebies are none other than: Uncharted Golden Abyss, Gravity Rush, Wipeout 2048, Jet Set Radio, Final Fantasy Tactics, and Mutant Blobs Attack. All of those amazing games and more each month are yours to keep and play as much as you want as long as you're a current PlayStation Plus member. This is all in addition to similar freebies you get for the PlayStation 3. Best deal in gaming indeed... Finally, if you don't already have a Vita, there are some nice bundles available, and Sony has indicated that a particularly intriguing offer is coming Black Friday: $199.99 for your choice of system and game bundle. Can't beat that!
So, to sum up, check out the book, then buy the book, and then take advantage of all the great deals and get to playing and tapping into the full potential of the Vita. If you're a fan of great gaming and amazing technology, you won't be sorry!
