    If you're rocking in your seat in excitement for Vita's launch, you might want to be prepared with some game to play on it.
    NeoGAF posters have discovered that at least five Vita games are already available for download via the US PSN - including Uncharted and WipEout.While not visible via the normal menus, slapping in a search for them will reveal the goods, and you can purchase and download them now, ready for the arrival of your shiny console later this month.
    Better still, if you already have a Japanese Vita and are waiting for English-language games, you can download the Vita titles to your PS3 and transfer them via USB cable to your console. The US downloads are thankfully fully playable on Japanese units.
    Here are the game found and their prices (which includes a currently available 10 percent discount):
    Uncharted (3.2 GB) $45 ($50 MSRP)
    Hot Shots (1.15 GB) $36 ($40 MSRP)
    WipEout 2048 (1.6GB) $36 ($40 MSRP)
    Super Stardust Delta (208 MB) $10 - PSN title
    Modnation Racers Road trip (1.5 GB) $27 ($30 MSRP)

    Sony has released a list of the PSP title currently available via the US PSN. Why? Because you can only play digital PSP games on your UMD-less Vita.
    The PS Blog says there are 275 PSP games available to download on your Vita, although only 155 of those are full retail titles - the rest are Minis.
    We also only count 117 Minis, which makes a total of 272 in actual math, but we're just nitpicking. The full list is below, and Sony promises that "more PSP titles will be made available for PS Vita play in the coming weeks".
    PSP games can either be downloaded directly to your Vita via PSN, or downloaded to your PS3 and transferred over via USB cable.
    Unfortunately, US-based gamers (and it seems likely that EU also) will not have access to the nifty UMD passport program that allows Japanese Vita owners to download digital versions of UMD games that they own for a small fee.PSP Titles

    The next Xbox may have a controller with a touch-screen area on.It's a Wii U controller?No; Xbox World Magazine (via NeoGAF) heard from "sources" that Microsoft is experimenting with something a bit more sleek - think Vita or iPad. Microsoft's after an HD screen surrounded by the usual 360-pad buttons and sticks.Don't stop there Microsoft - dream!

    The screen will apparently adapt to content: when watching TV it will be a remove; when on the internet it will be a browser; and when playing games it will offer extra buttons and a portable display "when you want to take your game with you".Maybe it could also be a Tamagotchi.But will this touch-screen-featured controller be an optional luxury? Won't it be expensive? And wait, what - why?! These are all questions still unanswered. Plus, it may turn out to be a lie.Also on Next-Gen Watch: Epic Games vice president Mark Rein last night said Unreal Engine 4 was running on "systems we can't name yet" (Loud Mouthed Gamers viaNeoGAF).Microsoft's next Xbox, which is expected to be unveiled this summer at E3, is no doubt one of those systems. With a prospective system launch in late 2013, game development will need to already be well under way.But is PS4 one of those systems? Outside of first-party studios, there is arguably none better placed than Epic Games to have access to secret dev kits, thanks to its ubiquitous Unreal Engine business.However, "systems we can't name yet" may also refer to iPad 3 and 4, both heavily rumoured, as well as iPhone 5. Epic, after all, has enjoyed perhaps the greatest core gaming success on iOS with Infinity Blade 1 and 2.

    Update: The Raspberry Pi Foundation has asked us to clarify the availability of the device. The developer version (essentially a Linux PC) should be going out to customers this month and details will be posted on the Foundation's website.The separate consumer version (which includes kid-friendly software and is intended for educational use) will be cased and be, essentially, a piece of consumer electronics. The Raspberry Pi Foundation hopes to release this latter device in Q3 this year. Both versions will be available for sale to anyone.Original story: Elite co-creator David Braben hopes the consumer version of the intriguing Raspberry Pi device - the $25 credit-card sized computer - will be made available to the public in the third quarter of this year.A pre-order system for the uncased, developer version of the Raspberry Pi will be unveiled in the near future, Braben told Eurogamer."We've not got a pre-order [system] for the commercial one yet because we need to determine the price, determine roughly when it's going to be," he said."We have a good idea that it will be sort of in Q3 this year, but we can't be certain. There are a lot of variables in terms of what we need to get ready. We don't know completely but we're moving very quickly."The Raspberry Pi Foundation hopes to offer children (of all ages), the opportunity to learn hands-on computing skills by creating software on the low cost, credit-card sized device.It's a venture that's well-timed given the UK government's recent commitment to teaching core practical IT skills in classrooms - rather than the use of word processors, and the essential Excel skills needed to perfect one's Eve Online trading spreadsheet.A full feature detailing our visit to Frontier Developments to look at the device will be published next week. In the meantime, we'll have a short reader Q&A appearing on our Facebook page later on today.

    Sony has unveiled the first two "Discovery Apps" bound for Vita later this year.Theses apps are "designed to showcase the unique features of PS Vita through innovative interactive experiences," according to a post from Sony product manager Mayumi Donovan on the PlayStation Blog.First up, Frobisher Says is a "surreal party game" in which you have to obey orders barked by the titular "strange little man". There are 50 minigames in total, utilising all of the Vita's various features.Take a look at the trailer below - we challenge you to make it all the way through to the end.Then there's t@g, which lets you graffiti virtual tags all over the real world using the system's GPS functions. You'll be able to track down other Vita owner's tags, pick up points and rewards for being particularly prolific and attempt to climb online leaderboards. You'll need a 3G-enabled Vita to enjoy this one. Again, trailer below.Both apps will be free to download from the PlayStation Store in May, though Frobisher Says will be available as a pre-order incentive from 22nd February.

    Super Mario 3D Land director Koichi Hayashida will present a postmortem talk at GDC entitled "Thinking in 3D: The Development of Super Mario 3D Land." Attendees will be required to cross a pit of moving blocks while being chased by evil purple versions of themselves in order to attend.

    Or, what will actually happen is that Hayashida will discuss developing for 3D devices, and "share development philosophies learned from Mario creator and legendary Nintendo designer, Shigeru Miyamoto."

    Another 3DS-centric talk is "Revealing the Truth About Resident Evil Revelations," presented by producer Masachika Kawata. And Cave COO Mikio Watanabe will discuss "Retro and Japanese Social Games on Smartphones," bringing attention to the company's recent endeavors in porting crazy shmups to iOS.

    This above is the first glimpse of Android 4.0 running on the Nokia N9. Yes, it looks like Ice Cream Sandwich is in being ported to the company's iconic handset by no other than Alexey Roslyakov and team NITDroid -- the folks who previously put Android on the Nokia N900. The project, which is still in its early stages, made significant progress after recently overcoming a framebuffer driver/HAL hurdle, allowing ICS to be displayed on the phone. In addition, a dual-boot solution is in the works letting Meegoand Android 4.0 coexist on the device. We certainly can't wait to experience using Ice Cream Sandwich on some of the hottest white hardwarehttp://www.engadget.com/2012/02/10/n...oot-in-the-wo/ around. Can you?

    Today's lucky beggar award goes to Graham Innes in Canada, who wrote in to tell us that he found aPlayStation Vita sitting on his doorstep. It wasn't a total surprise, since he'd ordered one from Amazon, but what's weird is just how soon it arrived -- the early-bird First Edition doesn't launch until February 15th and the general release is a whole week after that. We're not sure what Graham did to deserve this, but we do know from our Joystiq buddies that he's not the only one -- Amazon.ca has apparently sent out a few of these premature parcels. If the injustice burns, console yourself with the thought that Graham and his blessed compatriots probably can't access the store to download any games.

    Update: Graham emailed again. He has store access. He has games. Joyousness.

    According to one of Japan's big dailies, The Nikkei, Amazon will attempt to brave the tricky e-reader waters of Japan, aiming to launch its Kindle Touch as the flagship device in April. The newspaper reports that the device will land for less than 20,000 yen ($260), teaming up with Japanese mobile carrier NTT DoCoMo for 3G access to the Kindle's online store, gratis. Amazon hopes that the device's very competitive pricing, at least in comparison to existing 3G-friendly e-readers, will make in-roads to the notoriously frosty Japanese e-reader market. It will also bring Amazon's e-readers to the home turf of one of its biggest rivals; Rakuten.

    Frequenters of India's online Microsoft Store were briefly greeted with the suspicious visage of a Guy Fawkes mask this morning, following a hack that compromised the site's user database. According toWPSauce, Microsoft Store India's landing page was briefly taken over by a hacker group called Evil Shadow Team, who, in addition to putting a new face on Windows products, revealed that user passwords were saved in plain text. The group's motivations are unknown, though the hacked page warned that an "unsafe system will be baptized." The store is now offline, suggesting that Microsoft may have regained control. Read on for a look at the compromised password database.
