At Digital Foundry, we're on record as being rather partial to the PlayStation Vita and while we've looked at major titles such as Uncharted: Golden Abyss and WipEout 2048, coverage opportunities have been limited - something we're acutely aware of and aiming to address in a series of upcoming pieces that delve deeply into the character and capabilities of the hardware.
Just Add Water has pulled the patch it issued for Stranger's Wrath HD on PlayStation Vita after the developer found it was causing an issue with save files.
But don't panic. A patch for the patch that will fix old save files is inbound. And for now, new save files will work fine.
"We've found an issue with the patch where save games are incorrectly reported as corrupted," JAW explained on the Oddworld website.
Oddworld developers Just Add Water is plugging away at its upcoming Abe's Oddysee remake, New N' Tasty!, but it's unsure what game it wants to make after that, so it's asking fans for their input.

An HD remake of classic platformer Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee is in the works, Oddworld Inhabitants has confirmed.
"Abe HD is going into production," series creator Lorne Lanning told EGM, as reported by VG247, confirming that UK studio Just Add Water will be taking the reins.
"It's basically Abe's Oddysee being redone in a 3D physics engine as a 2D side-scrolling platformer," he explained.
The developer behind The Oddboxx – a PC collection of the first four titles from Oddworld Inhabitants – has promised disgruntled fans it will fix the technical issues currently blighting two of the included games.

Eurogamer was alerted to the issue by reader Tyronne. "Oddysee is unplayable with a 360 controller and will crash and Wrath is slow and has resolution issues," he reported.
All four Oddworld games will soon see a PC release in the Oddbox pack, developer Oddworld Inhabitants has announced.
Just Add Water's Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath remake isn't a PS3 exclusive out of choice. An Xbox 360 version is being worked on but, simply, the file is too big.

Lorne Lanning: "This is the first day that we're unveiling Stranger at all, so you guys are amongst the first people to see what we've been working on for the last two and a half years. I've got a lot to show you, so I'm going to jump right into it.
Electronic Arts has confirmed that Oddworld Inhabitants next title, Oddworld Stranger, which is picked up the rights to last month, will debut on PS2 and Xbox next spring.
The post-Munch's Odyssey title, which is now multi-format as opposed to Xbox-only as it was under the terms of Microsoft's exclusivity agreement (the deal that helped coin the term "money hat", fact fans), sees the player don the heavy weaponry of 'Stranger', a "rough and tumble bounty hunter who tracks down outlaws for moolah".
It's also "the first game that has been an enjoyable experience for me to work on throughout the entire production" according to Oddworld Inhabitants top banana Lorne Lanning, which certainly bodes well.

Last week the Discovery Channel in the US ran a documentary called X-Factor: Inside Microsoft's Xbox, which delved into the workings of a few companies developing for the black box. Amongst them was Oddworld Inhabitants, whose upcoming Oddworld game on Xbox came under close scrutiny.
According to GameSpot, the programme demonstrated a new, powerful central character, Steef, a crossbow-toting bounty hunter described as a mixture of beasts, including a gorilla, a lion, and Clint Eastwood. Gameplay-wise, the next Oddworld is apparently less puzzle-oriented, and more attuned to fast-paced first and third-person action.
Asked for a comment on the documentary, Oddworld Inhabitants apparently declined, preferring to let the footage speak for itself, but they wouldn't rule out the development team taking another direction before the game is actually "announced".
Oddworld: Munch's "it can only be done on Xbox!" Oddysee was an
