24w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden announced today that Velocity Ultra blasts off on PS Vita this July 2nd with details below.
To quote: What can I say? Other than sorry for the delay! We've been somewhat harassed by you folks for a month on Twitter, Email and Facebook, and frankly we deserved it! But now Velocity Ultra for PS Vita is nearly upon us, bug-free and with a high-res coat of paint.
Velocity Ultra has earned some whopping review scores. Still not convinced? Let's look at some of the improvements in this new, definitive version of the game.
Velocity Ultra features online leaderboards and Trophies (including a Platinum!), native res artwork, and flawless 60FPS action. I
t's a piece of perfectly formed interactive art that we're extremely proud to have installed on our PS Vitas. Velocity Ultra also features the same kick-ass soundtrack by Joris de Man (and myself, yay!), which you can now buy separately from all major digital music storefronts!
So what are you waiting for? A sequel? We'll see what we can do, but in the meantime, this is the definitive Velocity experience, and we're sure you'll agree that it rocks!
25w ago - Sony Director of Emerging Platforms Chris Mahoney announced that PlayStation Mobile was in full force at E3 this year.
To quote: This year we had some fun and exciting PlayStation Mobile games at our E3 booth in Los Angeles, as well as in the virtual booth within PlayStation Home on your PlayStation 3.
Also, we have been listening to our PlayStation Mobile community and we are pleased to say that your DualShock 3 can now be used to play some of your favorite PlayStation Mobile games on select PlayStation Certified devices.
In fact, Haunt the House: Terrortown and Switch Galaxy were both playable with a DualShock 3 in our booth at E3. We are updating our device list with a small controller icon to show you which devices are compatible with the DualShock 3.
The PlayStation Mobile games at E3 this year were some of our best and most recent titles. If you want to download any of the eight games that are available now, you can easily find them in the PlayStation Mobile section of PlayStation Store on PlayStation Vita.
Owners of PlayStation Certified devices such as the Sony Mobile Communications' Xperia Z smartphone can download them through the PlayStation Store, which is part of the PlayStation...

Below are the details, to quote: Today Jak and Daxter Collection launches on PS Vita. Now, over a decade since the Jak and Daxter series originally premiered on PS2, we are so proud to see the legacy of Naughty Dog's work brought together for players to enjoy - no matter where their adventures take them.
Jak and Daxter Collection brings three of your favorite Jak & Daxter adventures - Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II and Jak 3 - to life like never before. Mass Media has faithfully recreated the unique gameplay mechanics that you all know and love, and added touch screen support for a selection of mini games, so get ready to catch those fish and hunt down that eco.
Jak and Daxter Collection also features over 100 Trophies (including 3 Platinum) to unlock while you play through all three titles. These Trophy sets are separate from the PS3 version, so that means three more Platinum Trophies for you Trophy Hunters out there.

Starting later today, Jak and Daxter Collection will be available...
25w ago - Muteki Corporation President, CEO and Founder Bryan Sawler announced that Dragon Fantasy Book II is coming to PSN at E3 2013.
Below are the details, to quote: Since we announced Dragon Fantasy Book II back in August, we've had a very, very busy year. Our little 16-bit RPG that could has grown into quite a beefy project! Most of the game is now complete, with big chunks of the game tuned and fully playable.
We've got some big ol' bosses in there ready to stomp on people. We've beefed the engine up quite a bit from the SNES-like roots we were originally targeting, using way more layers, sprites, and rotation and scaling effects than that console was ever capable of.
We've travelled to two PAXes and a GDC, showing the game to everyone we could - and losing our voices several times in the process. And we even spent a good chunk of time and brought Dragon Fantasy Book I over to PSN as well, thanks pretty much entirely to the comments on this blog!
Most recently, we've added area-of-effect attacks to Book II. Getting attacked by a cluster of rowdy rock monsters is now no big deal when you can hit all of them at once with a well-placed spin attack!
Many magic spells have AoE effects as well, such as Freezios, which now freezes all the enemies in a straight...
