1d ago - Today 505 Games Senior Brand Manager Richard Gittins announced Terraria officially arrives on PlayStation Vita.
To quote: We're delighted to be giving PS Vita players the chance to jump into the world of Terraria, and satisfy the requests of so many fans in the process.
The core game that so many Terrarians know and love remains the same, however the Vita has allowed us to introduce a bunch of new features and functionality, making the Vita version super-fun to play and great looking at the same time!
It's the revamped control system that's seen the most focus this time around, in terms of really delivering something new and unique; introducing touch support to make the gameplay experience more immediate, tactile, and absorbing.
You can use touch controls to combine and craft intuitively within the item interface, but also when digging, building, and creating your own environments - this time with added finesse.
You can also jump in and enjoy online multiplayer with up to eight players, whether that's battling each other in a fight for survival, or teaming up to take on bosses and build bigger and better worlds together.
Not only that, but you've got the added benefits of cross platform play and cross save with your PS3. Play Terraria against...

To quote: Hi all, season's greetings from everyone here at Sony Santa Monica!
For me, the holidays are a time for reverence, a time to give thanks to family/friends/co-workers, a time to look forward to the new possibilities the coming year has to offer and of course a time to enjoy some games.
This year, I had the good fortune to work on two ports of thatgamecompany's games with two amazing developers: Flower on PS4 and PS Vita with Bluepoint Games, and flOw on PS4 and PS Vita with SuperVillain Studios. I'd like to thank all of the fans out there who helped to make Flower the top-selling PS4 (Without Digital Upgrade) game on PlayStation Store.
If you are one of the many people who enjoyed Flower, be sure to check out flOw on PS4 and PS Vita when it comes out on December 17th (that's Tuesday!) - It's $5.99 for the base game and $1.99 for the DLC.
And if you're in the mood for something a little different, something a little dark but chock full of humor, check out Escape Plan - now available on PS4. Escape Plan is a cross-buy title for PS4 and PS Vita available for $14.99.

2w ago - Crystal Dynamics Executive Producer Scot Amos announced today that the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition hits PS4 on January 28th, 2014.
Below are the details, to quote: Hi everyone, I'm Scot Amos, executive producer at Crystal Dynamics. On January 28th of 2014, we're bringing the award-winning Tomb Raider experience to PS4 in the form of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.
Recreating our franchise for PS4 was a true labor of love for the team. The critically acclaimed story and action adventure remain solidly intact and as riveting as ever. However, we took the opportunity to use the increased horsepower of the hardware to create the Tomb Raider we always envisioned.
We had a core team here at Crystal collaborating with the super talented teams at United Front Games (who worked with Square Enix on Sleeping Dogs) and Nixxes (whom Crystal has partnered with since the Legacy of Kain days). Together, we pulled the game apart and painstakingly rebuilt it with enhanced visual fidelity, realism, and a new immersive richness to the world.
Getting our gameplay up to native 1080p meant increasing all of our texture resolutions by over 4x so the details and nuances can be seen in their full glory.
However, it's subtleties like our subsurface scattering technology - how we...
