Despite having the full faith of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Nintendo has had some rough years recently with video game fans turning away from the company’s latest home console. So when Nintendo of Europe tweeted out a promo video for Sony’s handheld PS Vita last week, netizens wondered if this was just a mistake or part of a larger, more sinister plan for the video game industry.

Sony gives PlayStation 3 game cases a facelift, netizens complain they can’t tell games apart

Stroll into virtually any games store and, alongside a wall of lime and dark green that marks the domain of Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Xbox One, you’ll now find the sea of blue that is the PlayStation section. With its latest console, Sony went with dark blue for the majority of its packaging, with all games shipping in cases with dark blue headers stamped with the stylish “PS4″ logo. The cases are the exact same colour as those for Sony’s portable console, PlayStation Vita, though since Vita game cards are so ridiculously tiny the cases are roughly half the size of the PS4’s.

But now, PlayStation 3 games wearing the same colours as their PS4 and Vita brethren have begun showing up in stores.

PS Vita Game Takes Touch Control to Whole New, Inappropriate Levels【Video】

Nearly a year after launch, Sony’s PlayStation Vita, is struggling to take off even in its home market of Japan.

Last week was particularly embarrassing for Sony after it was revealed the Nintendo 3DS had sold nearly 47 times as many units as the Vita. Even the PlayStation Portable, the Vita’s technologically-inferior predecessor that’s been out for eight years in Japan, sold more units.

Some blame the lack of blockbuster game releases, others say the handheld is too expensive; but we think the real problem is that no developer has yet to unlock the full potential of the PlayStation Vita’s front and rear touch surfaces.

Well step over Animal Crossing, because here comes a title that is sure to herald the rise of Sony: Monster Monpiece, a game where you power up sexy young female heroes by rubbing, stroking and pumping your PS Vita.
