20w ago - While fail0verflow shared some Wii-U news at this year's 29th Chaos Communication Congress (29C3), we also received word that Sony PS Vita SDK Docs from Epic Games were leaked by Pimmeldisko today.
22w ago - Sega of America Associate Brand Manager Aaron Webber has announced that Sonic & All-Stars Racing hits PS Vita today, inviting fans to nab bonus DLC.
To quote: Why hello there, PS Vita owners! We heard you guys were hungry for an awesome multiplayer Vita racing game... and we're here to deliver. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed hits PS Vita today, and we're super-excited to share the game with all of you!
The game is out now both in stores and also on PlayStation Store. As you can probably guess, the game also isn't your average kart racer. The reason we have that fancy "Transformed" in the name is because your vehicle is going to transform in every single race: from a car to a boat to a plane!
My last few blogs here revealed quite a few old school Sega fans, so it's worth noting that the entire roster is essentially a love letter to gamers. Beyond your traditional Sonic cast, we've included the triumphant return of Vyse from Skies of Arcadia (a personal favorite of mine), Gilius from Golden Axe, NiGHTS, and many more. We've even got Wreck-it Ralph included as a playable character. (Don't worry, though - he's not going Turbo.)
One of the things I personally like most about the races is that "Transformed" doesn't just apply to your vehicles. It applies to the tracks, too!...

23w ago - Following up on PS Vita Firmware v2.01 release and Half Byte Loader news, today wololo has posted a video of eCFW 6.60 TN-C from The_Z running on PS Vita System Software version 2.01 with details below.
From his blog: The_Z shows us some more work from Frostegater, who is in possession of a PS Kernel exploit and was able to port Total_Noob’s CEF (a PSP custom firmware running in the PSP emulator of the Vita.
The video shows the Vita running an iso of K-On, as well as PSP Filer, and gPSP, the GameBoy advance emulator.
For some of you this is old news (we already mentioned Frostegater has a PSP Kernel exploit), and I’m sure we’ll see a share of complaints in the form of “if you show it, release it”, but hey, this shows that a PSP CFW inside of the Vita on the latest firmware is still possible, and hope is good, I guess.
So what about a release date? Well this is where it gets tricky. Frostegater does plan to release his work, but his Vita was stolen so he cannot make efficient progress on the work. As you will see in the video, him and The_Z are trying...
24w ago - Atlus Marketing Manager Robyn Mukai has proclaimed that Persona 4 Golden is PS Vita's top-rated game today and shared a video trailer below.
To quote: It goes without saying that PlayStation.Blog readers are the some of the savviest, most informed gamers out there. So it almost seems silly to tell you that since its launch on November 20th, Persona 4 Golden has held the honor of being the highest-rated PS Vita title ever according to Metacritic and Gamerankings. Are you surprised?
Of course not, because you know P4G's immersive 100+ hour adventure backwards and forwards. You know the grounded, relatable characters that are at turns emotional, then hilarious. (Trial of the Dragon, anyone?) You're more than proficient at finding, fusing, and customizing all the best, strongest Personas to handle Kanji's steamy bathhouse boss battle.
You've memorized the list of upgrades and new content that have helped bring Persona 4 Golden to even greater heights of critical success than the beloved PlayStation 2 version it's based on. We know you know all this and so have no desire to pump this blog post full of extraneous information.
HOWEVER, as you may have a few less sophisticated...
