This time last year we were eagerly awaiting the arrival of Sony’s latest handheld games console, the PS Vita, but now a year on and with the console not exactly fulfilling our expectations, Sony has decided to not give up on the device and instead offer its owners a host of free games to celebrate.
Yes, for the PlayStation Vita’s 1st Birthday Sony is giving you presents! This comes in the form of a host of free games from consoles past that users can download onto the handheld gaming device.
