1Up.com absolutely nails it: the Sony PlayStation exclusive franchise, Sly Cooper, has had its first game in eight years only just recently released in the US – to almost no fanfare. As the article points out, this is puzzling, given Sony’s decision to launch the game at $US40, and include free access to the Vita version bundled with a PS3 copy. Both of these factors, with some publicity, would do a great deal to help the Vita’s floundering game library profile.
Australia and Europe will have to wait almost 2 months for their official release. Watch this space!
