Christmas comes early as special guests CheapyD and…others…join the 8-4 crew to discuss the new PlayStation Vita, top to bottom: the launch, the games (including Uncharted, Ridge Racer, Hot Shots Golf and more), the mem cards, remote play, PSP backwards compatibility – every mother-father thing you can think of, from the feel of the flaps that cover the card slots to the menu music. Then! We shift gears to go deep, so deep, so deep into Monster Hunter 3G we put Qurupeco’s butt to sleep. You listen now, Joe!
