Rumor: PS Vita Games Activated Using ReActPSN via PlayStation 3

1300°
24w ago - Following up on the previous update, today dantezteam Tweeted a picture of what appears to be a way to activate full and demo PS Vita games using ReActPSN on a PS3 console running Custom Firmware.

Once activated using a PS3 on CFW and ReactPSN, the PlayStation Vita games are then transferred to Sony's PS Vita handheld console.

Currently there are no clear instructions or guide beyond the team stating "pkg-ps3-react-psvita-play" unfortunately so this is being considered a rumor until additional details surface.

Update: Digging into this it was an oversight in how the Brazilian PSN store worked. There was bug in that allow basically someone with PSN+ to keep their games without needing to be PSN+ member anymore.

Sadly, it been fixed, the outcry over it on twitter was that a lot of scene people knew and keep it secret not even informing those in Brazil regarding the bug or mistake by Sony's PSN store management.

24w ago - SideQuest Studios CEO Marcus Pukropski announced today alongside a video that Rainbow Moon is coming to PlayStation Vita on December 3rd.

Below are the details, to quote: After we released Rainbow Moon on PS3 last year, one of the most common questions we received was "Are you going to make a Vita version?"

Obviously we weren't the only ones that believed Rainbow Moon would make a great experience for handheld platforms, and with demand being so high, we set about working on a Vita port almost immediately.

For those of you not already familiar with Rainbow Moon, we've put together a new trailer. You can also find a few of our older blog posts explaining the game in more detail here.

Something that was really important to us from the beginning was using our own engine to ensure a solid 60 FPS, and a robust game with little to no loading times. After months of hard work, we're happy to announce that Rainbow Moon Vita is coming to PlayStation Store on December 3rd!





As a result of all the amazing feedback from Rainbow Moon fans around the world, more than 30 new features, improvements, and bug fixes found their way into Rainbow...

Starlight Inception is Coming to PlayStation Vita in December

24w ago - Escape Hatch Entertainment President Garry M. Gaber announced today that Starlight Inception is coming to PlayStation Vita in December, 2013.

To quote: Welcome to Starlight Inception, a first-person / third-person space combat experience coming to PS Vita in December. It contains a single-player campaign, single-player Fly Patrol (tower defense), and several multiplayer options.

The inspiration for Starlight Inception was the old space sim games that we loved as kids, but with a more sophisticated, modern sensibility.

We don't intend the fighters in Starlight Inception to be retextures of World War II fighters, but something more modern and space capable. And unlike those older games, Starlight Inception was designed to allow flight from space down to planetary/lunar environments with seamless transitions.

In Starlight Inception, you're a young space fighter pilot assigned to the U.S.F. Midway (SCVN-41) one hundred years from tomorrow. In the first mission (included in the beta going live today) you'll learn about your ship, the controls, and face your first enemies.

This mission is the only one included in this early Beta, but it should give a taste for what this game looks like and feels like. The intention was to really integrate the training into the...
