- Sony Platform Marketing Manager Sharon Kapitula
announced that PS Vita turns two today and invites PlayStation Vita fans to celebrate with PSN sales outlined below.
To quote: Hi everyone! I can't believe it's been a year, but here we are celebrating another PS Vita anniversary! So much has happened since its launch in North America two years ago - many amazing games were released, Remote Play functionality with PS4 was added, and we announced PlayStation Now is coming to PS Vita.
The platform has greatly transformed in the past year, and the passionate support and personal stories I've heard from our development community have been truly inspiring. Plus exciting things are on the horizon, including the launch of our new slimmer model PS Vita this spring.
In the meantime, we wish a big "thank you" to our fans for being a part of our community. Starting tomorrow, enjoy the week-long PS Vita Anniversary Sale which will discount some amazing titles.
In addition, @HeyPlayStation
is hosting a week-long sweepstakes, featuring Vita related games and accessories. Stay tuned on Twitter for more information!

As with any anniversary, we thought we'd take the time to call-out a few of our memorable moments from the last year. Although many great titles were released, these stood out in particular and kept the device in my purse/pocket/hands at all times.
Spelunky is one of the most addictive and lovable games I've ever encountered. From the adorable yet macabre art and animation, to the endless hours of replay grinding (ONE DAY I WILL BEAT KING YAMA), Spelunky will never leave my memory card.
Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc
The story immediately sucks you in with a solid plot-line, unexpected twists, and an eclectic set of characters to choosily befriend (Byakuya's my #1). I'm quite pumped that our friends at NIS America have already announced Danganronpa 2 coming to the US this Fall... it's still Monokuma time!
The game is perfect for quick bursts on the go, controls well with PS Vita's analogue sticks and touch pads, and its pixel graphics look fantastic on PS Vita's screen. Hotline Miami is also full of all sorts of fun Easter egg references to the indie community, which ties in so well with PS Vita's game library as a whole.
Definitely a must buy if you own a PS Vita. With gorgeous art, a killer soundtrack, and Iota/Atoi (your personal messenger and best friend), Tearaway is a truly immersive experience that makes you enjoy the world in a new (and papery) way.
My favorite part of the PS Vita is all the personal adventures it takes me on and the lasting memories they create. I've listed a few above, and I'd love to hear yours. Comment away!
