10tons Ltd Announces Sparkle on PlayStation Vita is Out Today

18w ago - Today 10tons Ltd PR Coordinator Jaakko Maaniemi announced that Sparkle on PlayStation Vita is officially released!

To quote: Hello, readers! Greetings from the magical winter wonderland* of Finland.

I'm Jaakko from multiplatform game developer 10tons. Even though we've been around for ten years now, we're genuinely excited to make our PS Vita debut this week.

The game we've chosen to be the spearhead of our entry to PS Vita is Sparkle. It's a marble shooter puzzle game, and probably the most popular game we've ever made.

The game is actually out on PS Vita in Europe already, and we've received a whole lot of positive reviews and feedback on it. Many noted that this particular subgenre of match-three is extremely underrepresented on PS Vita. Not anymore!

What sets Sparkle apart from many marble shooters are the big and brash power-ups, considerable level of challenge, and the slightly dark, mysterious theme. This type of game fits mobile gaming really well, and PS Vita is the ultimate device to play it on. Playing Sparkle with the touchscreen is fast and accurate, but if you prefer thumbstick controls, they're there as well.

We're also really happy it's possible to offer free trials of games on PS Vita. We realize...
 

Video: 505 Games Announces Terraria Out Today on PlayStation Vita

18w 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...
 

Sony Announces Minecraft Hits PS3 December 17th in North America

18w ago - Mojang's Owen HIll announced today via Sony's blog that Minecraft hits PS3 on December 17th, 2013 in North America.

To quote: Season's greetings! Owen from Mojang here. I have some exciting news that you might be interested in. It's about Minecraft - a game that's sold over 30 million copies to date. Minecraft is a game about breaking and placing blocks.

At first, you'll probably build simple structures to protect against nocturnal monsters. Later on, you might work with your friends to create wonderful, imaginative things.

It can also be about adventuring or watching the sun rise over a blocky ocean. It's pretty. Brave players battle terrible things in The Nether, which is more scary that pretty. You can also visit a land of mushrooms if it sounds more like your cup of tea.

Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition will be available to download from PSN on December 17th in North America.

Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition and Minecraft: PS Vita Edition are also being developed, but we don't have release dates yet. Expect them sometime next year.

I've received a few questions concerning the PS3 edition over the past few months, so let's clear them up before I get thrown off the blog...

Q: Does Minecraft: PS3 Edition feature everything from...
