53w ago - Lucid Games Creative Director Craig Howard has officially introduced Travel Bug today, a new discovery application for PS Vita users.
To quote: We are really excited to present Travel Bug, a new PS Vita Discovery app available for free download later today.
The premise of Travel Bug is simple. You first hatch a bug, then name it, then, using near, send it out on an adventure. Once it's out in the real world, you will get regular updates as it meets strangers on its travels until it comes back to your PS Vita.
So let's talk about the intrepid explorers: the Travel Bugs.
The first time you start the app, you will see a little larvae sitting on a leaf of your Home Tree. Tap it and it will hatch your first Travel Bug. You can name it and dress it up with items from the bug shop, then it's time to send it out on its first adventure.
Although you start with just one bug, you can then go hunting for others. If you hit sync in the game, you will activate near, which will gather any nearby bugs and pop them in your net. Here you can check out the bugs and decide if you want to help them out on a journey.
All of the bugs that you help will appear on spare leaves on your home tree where you can tap on them and find out more about them, and even see if...

Upon following the instructions your retail PS3 console will update to a partial Debug/Test console. Partial is stated because upon doing it the PS3 will possess what is pictured below, specifically non-functioning Debug options.

Additionally, the Sony SELF Check disc does not show under game while inserted, however it shows under the other menus as only a "Data Disc" like all burned discs do on retail (not Debug/Test) PS3 consoles.
The good news is it's possible to update to a higher retail Firmware which restores the Blu-ray movie playback functionality, however, the bad news is some...
