400-page hardback book documents Ten-year history of PS Vita

With the PS Vita approaching its tenth anniversary, author Sandeep Rai has launched a Kickstarter for a 400-page book documenting the entire history of the now-discontinued device. Vita Means Life – which aimed for a £6,000 target but has already exceeded £15,000 at the time of writing – promises to “look back at the events that shaped the format’s fortunes, from its well-received announcement to its rocky launch and everything after that.

The novel, a hardback compilation of three books previously written by Rai, has been expanded to include “new material” detailing more recent events. The final product will be split into four sections, covering hardware history, interviews, retrospectives, and an extensive library of all PS Vita games ever released in western territories.

If you’d like to support it, you can pay £27 for a physical and digital copy, with a release date set for April next year. There are some stretch goals, including an enhanced e-book and a collector’s handbook, the latter of which will be delivered along with all purchases if the project exceeds £30,000. You can find out more here, but with the Kickstarter already over £15,000 with 29 days to go, we can probably already consider it a smashing success.
