@darkmorgado Hmmm.... you are quite correct. I blame a badly-worded announcement from Square. Anyhoo, should've double-checked. Thanks for the tip - story tweaked...

Thanks for the kind words everybody! It's been an honour and a pleasure writing words for you all. My new arrangements in the UK mean you might not see my byline on the site for a while but I'll definitely be hovering around making sure Jeff knows where to put his Us and Zs. See y'all at the Expo hopefully.

@Triggerhappytel Umm, not at all! See last few paras: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012-01-20-is-the-playstation-vita-worth-230

I'd argue that the fact that the machine has had its worst ever sales week is both thoroughly newsworthy and well deserving of an "oh dear"!

@man.the.king In our defense, we've spoken to Microsoft a number of times about security issues in the last few months:
