PlayStation Now Open Beta Launches Today on PS Vita and PS TV

250°
10w ago - PlayStation Now Director of Marketing Peter Jamshidi announced that their PlayStation Now Open Beta launches today on PS Vita and PS TV platforms.

Below are the details, to quote: Starting today, the PlayStation Now Open Beta will be available on both the PS Vita and [Register or Login to view links] systems in much of the mainland U.S. and Canada, in addition to already being available on PS4 and PS3*.

Our vision for PS Now is to make it possible for more people than ever to have quick and easy access to PS3 games, making it as easy to stream these games as it is to stream TV, movies, and music.

PS Vita is an important part of that vision, as you'll be able to rent a game on one device, like PS4, then continue playing on your PS Vita or vice versa.

That's possible because of our cloud technology, which lets you play select PS3 games from our library of over 150 PS Now titles including God of War: Ascension on both a home console and a handheld device without the need for game downloads, installs, or patches.

PS Now makes the value of PS TV even better. The system, which launches today and starts as low as $99.99 MSRP, also provides one of the most affordable ways to get access to our library of PS3 games available...
 

Video: Unlock the Mysteries of Open Me on PS Vita Today

100°
71w ago - Sony Associate Producer Dais Kawaguchi invites fans to unlock the mysteries of Open Me, which officially arrives on PS Vita today.

To quote: We hope you're ready to think outside the box, 'cause Open Me for PS Vita is available today on PlayStation Store!

We received an amazing response from everyone when we announced Open Me back in March, and we've been listening ever since.

First off, we created a trial version that you can download for free so you can get a feel for the game. Secondly, the trial version includes the multiplayer box mode, so grab your friends and take on the challenge together!

After you've taken Open Me for a test drive, purchase the full 12-pack game for $9.99, or one pack for $0.99. If 12 packs are too many, and one just isn't enough, we created a 6-pack bundle (24 boxes) for $5.49. Enough packs, puzzles, and boxes for you?!





We didn't think so either, so we partnered with three teams in Japan Studio to create three collaboration boxes! If you purchase one pack or more, you'll also get the Tokyo Jungle box, Toro's box, and the Gravity Rush box for free!

The Smart AR in Open Me works especially well when you use the Original AR Marker, so if you have a...
 

Killzone: Mercenary MP Open Beta in Late August, Closed Beta Live Now

100°
73w ago - Sony PlayStation Public Relations Manager Aram Jabbari revealed today that the Killzone: Mercenary MP Open Beta for PS Vita arrives in late August while the Closed Beta is live now.

To quote: We're excited to announce that the Killzone: Mercenary closed multiplayer beta (for which signups were held a short while ago and already concluded, if you're just tuning in now) is now LIVE. To those who got in, you should already have the necessary information to jump in and get going.

Note: If you received a multiplayer Beta voucher as part of the promotion via PlayStation Home, please note that your voucher is for the Open Beta in late August, not for the closed Beta launching today.

To those of you who didn't get in or are just hearing about this now, worry not: we're going to open the multiplayer beta right on up in late August - details will be coming really soon, so stay tuned.





And really, who doesn't like a good open beta? They're a bit draftier. They let in more natural light. Better for Agoraphobes and such.

Killzone: Mercenary hits shelves in North America on September 10th, 2013.
 

Sony Announces Open Me! for PS Vita is Coming to North America

100°
92w 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...
