4w ago - Sony Product Manager Alex Moyet unveiled the Tearaway PlayStation Vita TV advert video premiere today with details below.
To quote: Just 10 DAYS to go until the launch of Tearaway on PS Vita - too much excitement! To help you while away the days why not take a little peek at the premiere of our official Tearaway TV ad.
The TV ad was filmed over two days in a studio in South Africa and includes a marvellous combination of CG, live action, puppet wizardry and - of course - papercraft! The set building team painstakingly crafted a stunning miniature paper set inspired by the world of Tearaway, including the snowy peaks of Gibbet Hill and the lush verdure of Valleyfold.
Have a look at some behind the scenes snaps:
With every tear, rip, fold and tab, a lot of love was put into the creating the set, from crafting a perilous ravine....
...to organising an entire production line just for trees!
And of course no Tearaway ad would be complete without a fearsome wendigo! Although this one needed a little bit of help standing up. Perhaps he was tired.
We hope you enjoy it - let us know what you think and don't forget there's still time to pre-order...

14w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements shared a video today that goes hands-on with Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix on PS3.
To quote: When we are older, you'll understand what I meant when I said, 'No, I don't think life is quite that simple.'
So sang Hikaru Utada in her beloved single that opened the original Kingdom Hearts in September of 2002. And so she sings again in this upcoming HD update that famously twisted together the fates of Square Enix characters with Disney icons.
And the lyrics offer a pointed commentary on the re-release, as the narrative of Kingdom Hearts was never quite that simple. And perhaps that's why we love it so much.
Kingdom Hearts begins innocently enough, with a young boy named Sora spending time with his friends, Riku and Kairi. But soon their world, and perhaps all worlds, are threatened by a malignant darkness. Sora, as our intrepid hero, is promptly pulled into the intrigue.
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix is an incredible collection for fans of the series, and a perfect entrypoint for those that missed the original. It includes the "Final Mix" version of the first Kingdom Hearts, which was never launched in the United States.
This version includes new enemies, items, and other assorted goodies. But now,...
