In its pre-E3 conference, Sony apologized for the recent hacking problems and shows the new PS Vita portable game device

Sony showed its new PlayStation Vita handheld gaming device to a prominent Los Angeles event on Monday to move in a bid to the hacker attacks that forced the company to shut down its gaming network for nearly a month.
