This is yet another port headed to PlayStation Vita, but in this instance I don’t mind. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Don’t Starve and it seems perfectly suited for the handheld. I don’t own a PS4 currently but, with cross-buy included , I could see myself playing it mostly on the Vita. The system has become a great portal to indie games for a non-PC gamer, such as myself.
