E3 2013: ‘The Walking Dead’ Gives Another Reason to Buy a Playstation Vita


I’ve gushed like the burst cranium of a walker over Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead: The Video Game, which has been ported to pretty much every platform imaginable.  Well, you can now add Sony’s portable Playstation Vita to the mix, according to Joystiq’s coverage of Sony’s E3 press conference.

If the promise of bringing Lee Everett and his motley band of survivors with you to the safe haven of your bathroom wasn’t enough (you could already do so in the iPhone and iPad, but I’m running with it), the Vita release also promises an additional episode called “400 Days,” which is certain to reduce me to a sobbing infant.  Hey, these games are brutal.

There is also a promised “Playstation Vita bundle” to be released alongside the new content.  Whether that means a hardware bundle or (hopefully) a physical media release is a little vague.  I certainly hope for the latter, as I can’t afford a larger Vita memory card without selling my other kidney.
