Hey guys. Tyler here with the Releases and the miscellaneous news. This week is a little light, but expect a bit more from here on out as well.

NEWS

The Playstation Vita has a rumored release date of October 28th, this year.

Destructoid has written up a pretty sweet article on how to build a high end gaming PC for only $480. Check it out here.

- Dues Ex: Human Revolution is officially gold, and will be released on August 23rd.

- Please let this be true... Timesplitters 4.

NINTENDO

- Not a lot of news here this week - Many many games were sold.

- Bit of Zelda news from SDCC: Skyward Sword for the Wii will have upgrades for items.

- the 3DS is now 169$ USD, but now anyone who bought before hand gets a ridiculous deal.

SONY

- Awwwwww! Toy Story DLC kit for Little BigPlanet 2~
