97w ago - Sony Producer and Studio Head Sian Yue Tan has confirmed that Rocketbirds blasts off on PlayStation Vita today with details below.

To quote: The wait is over! We're very proud to announce that Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is wiggling its way onto your PS Vita starting with today's PlayStation Store update.

To start things off - an apology to those of you who own the PS3 version of the game, whom we promised a reduced price last week if you also purchase the PS Vita version.

We 'clucked up,' and the planned 20% discount will take a bit longer before this is set up in the US PlayStation Store. We will let you know when the discount goes live.

That said, building upon our 3x IGF Finalist browser game Rocketbirds: Revolution! and Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken for PS3, this new PS Vita version utilizes many of the PS Vita's awesome features.

For those of you who are reading about this title for the first time, in this game, you'll take control of Hardboiled Chicken, the original Cock of War (a chicken so tough, he survived being boiled as a fetus), to lead the rebellion against the draconian penguin oppressors to overthrow their hold on Albatropolis!

It's an old-school cinematic action-adventure set in the Rocketbirds universe, a world filled...
