9w ago - Sony Associate Producer Dais Kawaguchi announced today that Open Me for PS Vita is coming to North America!
Below are the details, as follows: The creative minds in PlayStation C.A.M.P! have created an entirely original puzzle game exclusively for PS Vita, and it's created a strong buzz since its debut at Tokyo Game Show last Fall.
Today, we're announcing that OPEN ME! an addictive augmented reality puzzle game for PS Vita, is coming to North America later this year.
The goal in OPEN ME! is simple - open the box and collect the items inside. This may sound easy, but these boxes are full of traps; players will need to use Vita's augmented reality features to look closely at the boxes from every direction, looking for the slightest hint on how to open them.
By using PS Vita's cameras and smart augmented reality technology, the elusive box will appear on the screen in seconds. Touch the screen to open the box, but be careful, the lids of some boxes are razor sharp and they will shut tight if you fail.
Boxes range from a simple wooden box to a more sophisticated box made of metal, each with its own unique tricks to opening the box. Examples of challenges include stacking colorful boxes from the inside of a larger box, or exploring and disarming a box's security...
10w ago - GungHo Online Entertainment America Community Coordinator Antonio Cara has confirmed today that they are bringing six more PSOne imports to North America.
Below are the details, to quote: As promised, GungHo is bringing over a new batch of PSone Imports for your enjoyment today! Just like last time, I'd like to chat about these lovely games and what you can expect out of them.
This classic dating simulation was first released in the late nineties. It was popular enough to spawn various sequels, an anime series, and even a radio drama! The story revolves around a protagonist who was constantly moving about during his childhood, so he never had time to form deeper relationships with those around him.
He receives a much unexpected letter from a mysterious paramour which simply states, "I want to see you." He's got it narrowed down to one of the 12 special women he met in his younger days, and it's up to the player to decide how this tale ends...
Players control our hero by making use of his incredibly tight schedule. You've only got so much time to spend with these ladies, so you have to make it count!
Carefully plan out each day by studying your calendar and preparing potentially romantic encounters with the 12 candidates....

Below are the details, to quote: Hi again, this is Sports Champions 2 Senior Producer, Jeremy Ray, and I'm super excited to finally let everyone know when Sports Champions 2 will be available here in the US - October 30th!
Since we're getting close, I've got a small update on the game for you.
We're giving the game one final coat of polish and squashing bugs right now, and I'm proud to say that we've surpassed many of our lofty internal goals. We can't wait until it's in your hands.
One example: the Avatar Creator feature has turned out so much better than we envisioned it. In fact, we are already starting to think about post-release support to make this feature even better - hopefully I'll be able to announce something on that after launch.
The creativity we've seen with the QA team on the avatar creator has been inspiring, and we're incredibly excited to see how much further the fans take it.
We are also getting a ton of great feedback on Skiing, Boxing, Tennis, Golf, Bowling, and the new Archery. Just...
51w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa has announced today that Inafune's next game Soul Sacrifice for PS Vita is coming to North America and Europe.
To quote: Hello everyone! I've got some great news. A few weeks ago, Soul Sacrifice for PS Vita was announced in Japan and I'm sure many of you are wondering about the status of a North American and European release.
I'm happy to announce that Soul Sacrifice is coming to North America and Europe! The legendary Keiji Inafune of Comcept is leading this project with MarvelousAQL, with Yasunori Mitsuda and Wataru Hokoyama working on the music and soundtrack.
The theme of this game is "reality blended experience." You may wonder what that means, exactly. In celebration of the announcement in North America, Inafune-san has kindly sent us a description along with his comments.
What I wanted to illustrate in this game was a "reality blended into a fantasy world." The word "fantasy" normally points to a story that is fictitious; however, with Soul Sacrifice I wanted to illustrate a "reality" within a fantasy that wasn't sugar-coated. It's not about focusing on the strange, but to flip the commonly held concept of what a fantasy theme should be with the concept...
To quote: Just wanted to let you guys know that Amazon (for the US anyway) has begun shipping out the 3001-A's to customers. There is actually a few more changes to the hardware then I noticed in the pics (I have one). the Wifi light was removed but not the HDD light, the PS logo above the drive is now silk screened rather then an emblem while the silk screened SONY logo was removed in favor of an indented logo.
