Overnight, a bunch of great announcements came through from Sony's PlayStation Experience event. Rather than drip-feed them to you in single sentence form, which I know we all find annoying, here are all the smaller stories in a single post. Enjoy!

An Honest Trailer for Ghostbusters? No, no, not the new Ghostbusters, but the 2009 video game that featured the original cast. It was unique in that writers Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd (who played Egon Spengler and Ray Stantz respectively), had a hand in the production and script, making the game an official instalment — of sorts.
While Final Fantasy Type-0 HD isn't due out in North America until Tuesday, a special ending cinematic teaser from the end of the game has hit YouTube, suggesting game director Hajime Tabata's desire to make Final Fantasy Type-1 is being realised.
This weekend, the PS Vita will officially turn three. Although the system has become a must-have for anyone who's into indies and niche Japanese games, it just hasn't been able to make a splash in a market dominated by iPads and iPhones.
When the battery exploded inside Redditor tommyboy601's PSP, he decided his time with the Sony portable was at an end. Rather than trade it in at his local GameStop for pennies, he built a fitting memorial to an old friend.
Remember back in 2011, when the PlayStation Network went down for almost a month? Well, after years of haggling in court, Sony has recently agreed to a settlement in the cases brought forward following the hack. One which, if the judge approves their offer, is going to cost Sony $15 million, and give a whole bunch of people free stuff.
Toukiden is the samurai vs demon hunting game that was released last year on the PS Vita and PSP. Now, Tecmo Koei has announced Toukiden Kiwami, an upgraded version of the original with additional story, equipment and enemies.
Much like the previous HD upgrade collection, Kingdom Hearts I.5 HD Remix, Kingdom Hearts II.5 HD Remix takes 3 previous Kingdom Hearts games and gives them an HD bump-up. Square Enix had a playable demo available at this year's Jump Festa 2014, and Kotaku East was there to experience some HD goodness.
"Monster Hunter with plot" is how God Eater was once described to me. Well, after the runaway hit that the Monster Hunter series has turned out to be, it's no surprise that everyone and their grandmother is out to catch lightning in a bottle twice with the same formula. So how does the third God Eater game, God Eater 2, hold up?
Back in August, I played Danganronpa on the PSP. While eager to play the sequel, I decided hold back and wait a month for the Vita re-release of the second game before I played it. But whether it's on the PSP or the Vita, Super Danganronpa 2 is a game that improves on the original in every way.
Back in August, I played Danganronpa on the PSP and loved it. And after playing a bit of it on the Vita TV at TGS, I was more than a little excited to spend some quality time with its updated graphics. But even I was surprised at just how much better the game looks on the Vita when I compared them side by side.
