Hands-on the new with PS Vita

PS Vita's new design has tons of tweaks and adjustments, aside from the obvious thinner design and weight reduction. The Start, Select, Power, and PS buttons have been raised slightly, making them easier to press.

The grips on the back of the system have grown a bit, resulting in a more comfortable experience and less accidental taps on the rear touch pad. The edges of the system are more rounded, which just feels better. The display is now LCD based, but I didn't...
 

Sony Announces God of War Collection is Out Today on PS Vita

50°
12w ago - Santa Monica Studio Community Strategist Aaron Kaufman announced that God of War Collection is out today on PS Vita!

To quote: God of War defined the word "epic" like no other when it debuted on PS2 in 2005, introducing an iconic character to PlayStation fans worldwide - Kratos.

Once the servant of Ares (who saved the Spartan General and his army from annihilation in battle), Kratos was tricked into murdering his family, forcing his metamorphosis into the "Ghost of Sparta." Now, chained by the Blades of Chaos, Kratos unlocks the memories of his past, seeking redemption for his sins and vengeance against Ares, the God of War.

This is where the story of Kratos begins, a saga in which players will encounter a skyscraper-sized Leviathan, explore a twisted temple on the back of a massive Titan, decimate enemies with 100 hit combos with the mighty Blades of Chaos, and discover gaming moments that will stay with them forever.





I'll personally never forget "I am what the Gods have made me!" I'd like to think that line alone inspired a generation of gamers.

Now, it's time to bring the legacy of God of War and God of War II to PS Vita, so that no matter where you are, you all can experience the...

Fenix Fire Announces Source on PS4: Evolving The Adventure

50°
13w ago - Fenix Fire CEO Brian McRae announced Source on PS4 today while discussing the evolution of the adventure with PlayStation 4 fans below.

To quote: When we began developing Source, we set out to create something completely new and unique, yet deeply versed in the classic Metroidvania adventure game style. To us, a Metroidvania is a special kind of adventure game that has a few main components that need to be just right.

First off, there needs to be an expansive, mysterious world to explore. Second, there should be permanent upgrades that are vital to your character's advancement and survival.

Lastly, a rich, visual story should unfold simply by playing the game itself. In just a few months of development time we've managed to uncover how we will attempt these familiar traits of the genre, and maybe even evolve them a bit further with Source.

The world of Source, even in its earliest versions, has always been an alternate dimension full of life, energy, and bio luminescence. Early on we looked at 80′s computer graphic movies like Tron, deep sea marine life, and fine surreal art for influence.

The reason for this eclectic mix of inspiration was to find the middle ground between the familiar and the unknown in order to help drive the exploratory nature of...
 

Video: 17-BIT Announces Skulls of the Shogun is Rolling Onto PS4

50°
13w ago - Senior Producer Raj Joshi at 17-BIT shared a video today announcing that Skulls of the Shogun is rolling onto PS4.

To quote: It's been a long road for us at 17-BIT getting Skulls of the Shogun out the door - and we hope you're ready for what's set to be the ultimate version of the fast-paced, turn-based strategy game: The Bone-a-Fide Edition, finally coming to PlayStation 4!

Skulls of the Shogun is a mash-up of turn-based strategy and fighting-game flare, scientifically engineered for lightning-quick rounds, thoughtful strategic play, and a frequently inappropriate sense of humor with its tongue planted firmly in cheek.

And whether you're into single or multiplayer, Skulls has you covered.

You play General Akamoto, Japan's greatest shogun, who's been stabbed in the back on the eve of his greatest battle - and transported to the Samurai Afterlife. But an impostor has taken your place, and it's up to you to shatter his plans and regain your honor as Shogun - of the Dead!

As you play through a beefy 10-hour single-player campaign, you'll build up your undead army, assembling infantry, archers, and scouts, along with a magical menagerie of animal monks.

You'll haunt rice fields, build units, and power up your troops by feasting on the skulls of your...
