Industry NewsEdit

  • "Today, Vonny has announced the much anticipated successor to their popular Playsystem console. The Playsystem 2 will have upgraded hardware to compete with newer generation consoles such as the DreamVast. Unlike the DreamVast the Playsystem 2 does not focus much on online play but instead seems to focus on the strengths of the previous Playsystem. A solid upgraded controller including vibrating function, upgraded graphics, support for DVD titles and even backwards compatibility with Playsystem 1 games."
  • "The launch of the Playsystem 2 has been a phenomenal success. Stores everywhere are out of stock as manufacturing can barely keep up. Fans have resorted to buying the console on internet auction sites for as much as five times the normal price. While Vonny has managed to have the most successful launch in history, sales of Vena's DreamVast have plummeted."
