Team17: Alien Breed Launches PS3 and PS Vita Assault Next Week

50°
94w ago - Team17 Creative Manager Kevin Carthew has announced today that Alien Breed launches a PS3 and PS Vita assault next week.

Below are the details, to quote: Alien Breed, our new survival horror game, is due for release on PS3 and PS Vita on February 12th via PlayStation Store for $9.99, with a 20% launch discount available for PlayStation Plus members!

Last year we celebrated the 21st anniversary of Alien Breed and brought the title to PlayStation Mobile. With the PS3 and PS Vita version we wanted to introduce more cool features, such as the ability for players to team up on either system via cross-platform play.

There is also ad-hoc and online co-op multiplayer for PS Vita, and local and online co-op multiplayer for PS3. We've also got Cross-Platform Continuation Play in the mix too, allowing players to carry on their PS3 save game progress on their PS Vita and vice versa.





Alien Breed is fondly remembered by its fans, especially in the UK where the Special Edition stayed in the "All Formats" charts for over a year. We were really proud of the 2009 version of the game, but a remake of the original game turned out to be a much better fit for the platforms it was appearing on.

100°
94w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez is here with this weeks new PS3, PS Vita and PSN releases today, with details below as follows:

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time marks the franchise's biggest and most ambitious game yet with completely re-designed characters, worlds two times the size of those in previous Sly games, more vibrant and dense environments, and real-world physics allowing for a realistic gameplay experience.

Staying true to the franchise's signature gameplay style of blending stealth, thievery, exploration, and combat, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time will take players on a thrilling journey around the world filled with epic boss battles, action-packed missions, engaging puzzle elements, new stealth moves and much more for both the PS3 and PS Vita.

Dead Space 3 is a third-person shooter with survival-horror gameplay elements that challenges players to work singly, or with a friend to stop the viral/monster Necromorph outbreak. The game features the return of franchise hero, Isaac Clarke and the necessity of his weapons making abilities and precision skill in using them against in order to defeat enemies.

Other game features include, drop-in/out co-op support, the additional character John Carver, evolved Necromorph enemies, a new cover system, side...
 

Video: Urban Trial Freestyle Amps Up on PS3 and PS Vita

50°
95w ago - Tate Interactive GM Wojtek Bilinski has shared a video trailer today announcing that Urban Trial Freestyle amps up on both PS3 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: We are getting closer to releasing Urban Trial Freestyle - and since we've focused on the PS3 version, we thought it was time to shed more light on the PS Vita version.

Both versions of Urban Trial Freestyle feature the same proprietary physics engine (called Elephant Engine), so in terms of being a trial biking experience, PS Vita and PS3 are quite similar.

Both platforms also feature the same game modes, outfits and motorbike customization. PS Vita is a really powerful machine - as a development team, we were able to include all the same features as those on the PS3 version.

Still, there are some differences between the two versions, including events and background action, billboards and challenges.





PS Vita has a smaller screen, and we decided that trying to match the big platform level of detail would be too much on a handheld platform. When you play Urban Trial Freestyle on your PS3, its likely you'll have a much bigger screen, chilling in a comfortable position in front of the TV, so you can really absorb more elements and...
 

Video: PS Vita Half Byte Loader for Firmware 2.05 by Tomtomdu80 Demo

650°
95w ago - Following up on his previous VHBL exploit and Sony's PS Vita Firmware Update v2.05, Tomtomdu80 has now made available a demo video spotlighting a PS Vita Half Byte Loader for Firmware 2.05 below.

To quote: We announced last week that developer Tomtomdu80 got VHBL to run with a new user mode exploit. A few days ago, The Z published a video showing Tomtomdu80′s exploit running VHBL perfectly on PS Vita's latest firmware 2.05.

Firmware 2.05 patches both the user and kernel exploits used with UNO to run CEF and ARK. It's also been confirmed that the latest Sony firmware patches several kernel exploits that were all relying on the same pattern (security issues related to the kermit wlan implementation). Technically, the end user is back to square one if they are on firmware 2.05.

Thankfully, there are still lots of usermode exploits available in many psp games, and some of them can be used to port, if not a psp custom firmware (a kernel exploit would be required for that), at least VHBL.

VHBL is a Homebrew loader for the Vita running in...
