Power Button - Episode 76: We're Not Buying PlayStation Vita (Yet); Let's Get This Party Kickstarted
Power Button is back after a three-week hiatus with a new episode in which Brad Hilderbrand and I discuss the recently released Sony PlayStation Vita and why we're both holding back on buying one. Between hidden costs and the hard-earned expensive lessons of the Nintendo 3DS, we have reasons to be wary, but our collective hesitation goes deeper than that. Our second segment discusses Double Fine Adventure and the amazing success that Tim Schafer has enjoyed with his Kickstarter fundraising initiative. Does this crowdsourced funding model make sense for other developers? We explore the possible potential. Joey Davidson is off this week, Brad has a new project that you'll want to check out, and I tell you how you can win The Darkness and The Darkness II for the Microsoft Xbox 360 if you act quickly enough. Fifty minutes of discussion await!
