17w 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...

18w ago - Housemarque Community Manager Tommaso De Benetti shared a video today announcing that Furmins rolls to PlayStation Vita on December 17th, 2013.

Below are the details and video trailer, to quote: Hi there, Tommaso De Benetti from Housemarque and Alexey Menshikov from Beatshapers speaking. After a minor Q&A setbacks caused by a prank our little furry friends conjured up, we are finally able to confirm the North American release of Furmins on PS Vita!

In Furmins, players will attempt to guide the eponymous and loveable creatures across fiendishly designed levels by rearranging a variety of items in real time with well-coordinated precision. Strategically placed items create pathways and physical chain reactions that guide the Furmins to a basket at the end of the level.





Wondering what happened to the Furmins Kingdom to justify a whole gaming adventure? Here's a quick overview:

The Furmins are a happy race of creatures living a happy, peaceful existence.

Things were rolling along great until the fateful day their benevolent (yet rather large)...

... King fell asleep, rolled over a river forming an impromptu dam and blocked their flow of water!

22w ago - Sony Associate Producer Michael Pulst shared a video today proclaiming that Tearaway and PlayStation Vita are a match made in heaven.

To quote: Hello again! We do hope you've been enjoying our Behind the Scenes Tearaway mini-series. For the fourth video in our little collection, we wanted to show you why this papery platforming adventure really couldn't have been made for any other device or console.

On your quest to help iota or atoi deliver their very special message to you, you'll solve perplexing puzzles with the tilt; defeat your enemies with the front touch pad; capture and customize your journey together with the front and rear cameras and microphone; and, best of all, reach into the game with the rear touch pad. It truly is a "hands-in" experience (sorry).





Don't forget there's still over a week to pre-order Tearaway and also secure our Special Delivery pre-order bonus items. Week one orders at the PS Store will also include the bonus items so those who prefer the digital version will not miss out!
