Sony Goes Hands-On with Assassin's Creed III: Liberation PS Vita

50°
96w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has gone hands-on today with Assassin's Creed III: Liberation on the PS Vita console!

Below are the details, to quote: Last week, [Register or Login to view links] graciously offered members of the gaming media the first opportunity to go hands-on with Assassin's Creed III for PS3 and Assassin's Creed III: Liberation, the upcoming PS Vita-bound chapter set against the backdrop of Spanish occupation in 18th century Louisiana.

Both games, of course, demonstrated plenty of promise: ACIII for its Revolutionary War-era pomp and Skyrim-rivalling scale, ACIII: Liberation for its sultry new setting and uncanny attention to detail.

But in the five days since the hands-on session, I've unexpectedly found myself reflecting more on my experiences with Liberation. Seeing the series' sprawling, hyper-detailed environments and fluid gameplay so faithfully recreated on PS Vita's luminous 5'' screen bordered on startling.

Protagonist Aveline also struck me as an interesting character with unique motivations, and the game's untapped 18th-century Louisiana setting seems like it could pay off in a big way.

Refined by leaps and bounds compared to its early E3 showing, the updated build of Liberation I played...

Video: VHBL New Game Exploit Running on PS Vita Firmware 1.81

750°
96w ago - Previously we reported that VHBL was running via a Monster Hunter Freedom Unite exploit on PlayStation Vita Firmware 1.80, followed by Sony patching it in v1.81 with wololo back this weekend demonstrating a new game exploit running VHBL once again on PS Vita Firmware 1.81.

The video shows VHBL running Wagic (Magic the Gathering simulation) and gPSP (a GBA Emulator), however, once the new game exploit is publicly disclosed Sony will likely release another PS Vita Firmware update in order to resecure their handheld console once again.

Below is the video, and to quote from wololo's blog:

Latest Sony firmware 1.81 patches the Monster hunter exploit, but as usual, Sony has been kind enough to only patch that specific game, and not prevent VHBL itself from running. The video below shows VHBL running on firmware 1.81.

This is VHBL running on an undisclosed game exploit on firmware 1.81. In the video, I'm showing VHBL running Wagic, as well as Game Boy Advance's "Advanced Wars 2″ running through the GBA Emulator gPSP. Those of you with a good...
 

Persona 4 Golden is Set for November 20th on PlayStation Vita

50°
96w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has confirmed today that Persona 4 Golden is set for November 20th on the PlayStation Vita handheld gaming console.

To quote: Persona 4 Golden, Japan's BEST SELLING PS Vita game of ALL darn-tootin' time, finally has a North American release date: November 20, 2012, in stores and via PlayStation Store.

Did you hear that? That's the sound of millions of Vita owners screaming in joyous union. They know, as you might too (or will soon learn), that when it comes to a deep role-playing game experience with TONS of monsters to slay; Personas to collect and fuse; areas to explore; well-written characters with which to interact and develop bonds; and a terrific, highly memorable story, there is NO substitute.

A random short list of enhancements and additions (in no particular order) we've only lightly touched on:

•You can now sneak out at night when your uncle Dojima is out at work (which is frequent, as he's a veteran police detective). Every conversation and event discovered during this time - heck, even the music that plays - is all new. Moreover, many areas, like Shiroku store in the shopping district, serve a different purpose after dark.

•You can get night jobs, on top of the clubs you might join...
