102w 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...

Below are the details, to quote: Aliens: Colonial Marines is a First-Person Shooter set in the Alien movie franchise universe in which the player takes on the role of a member of a squad of colonial marines sent to the planet LV-426.

Additional features include: four-player co-op functionality, a new alien type, and customizable weapons.

Created by Gearbox Software, the critically acclaimed and fan-favorite developers of Borderlands and Brothers In Arms, this first-person shooter is steeped in the eerie, claustrophobic and terrifying atmosphere that made the Aliens films successful worldwide. You and your friends will become the most badass military outfit in the galaxy - the US Colonial Marines. It's down to you to not just survive, but wipe out the Xeno infestation.

103w ago - Sony Producer Greg Phillips has shared a Ratchet & Clank update today dubbed full frontal assault and deadlocked as detailed below.

To quote: As many of you know, when Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault launched for the PS3 system this past November, we announced that the PS Vita version would be coming out later in January 2013 to ensure the best portable Ratchet & Clank experience possible.

Our friends at Tin Giant have been working night and day to bring Insomniac's PS3 game to the PS Vita system and to provide our fans with a great game. While the original delay has helped us make the game better, we still need more time to bring the game up to the standards expected by our fans.

In order to do this, the launch date for Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault for PS Vita has moved to Spring 2013. We realize that this delay may be disappointing for our fans, but please know that we are doing our best to get the game into your hands as soon as possible.

For those of you who have purchased the PS3 version of the game and are waiting for your PS Vita entitlement, we want to make it up to you as best we can.

On the release date for Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault for PS Vita, we will be offering Ratchet & Clank: Deadlocked for the PS3 system as a...

650°
103w ago - Recently PlayStation Vita developer Total_Noob has announced news of TN-V for PS Vita, which will bring forth both XMB and PSN access for users.

6.60 TN-V is a Custom Emulator Firmware (CEF) for the PS Vita. It offers the XMB design and the most important feature: the ability to access the PSN - the SOLUTION for 2.02 UNO owners.

It is still work in progress. There is no release date. There are quite some bugs and I have only little time to work on that.

Below are the full details and video via wololo, to quote: Total_Noob has officially announced his new project: 6.60 TN-V for the PlayStation Vita.

6.60 TN-V is a Custom Emulator Firmware (CEF) for the PSVita 2.02 UNO exploit. Total_Noob's TN-V will be different from his last release (TN-C) as it will include a fully functioning XMB something we saw only briefly in pictures awhile back, however now Total_Noob has a video to show it in action.

TN-V will support PSN access, so you’ll be able to connect to the PlayStation Network to download PSP games and access content, something that has been not possible after the mandatory 2.05 update and blocking of the Charles & Fiddler proxies. You’ll only be able to connect to the PSP's store since TN-V uses part of the PSP 6.60 firmware (to connect),...

103w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton has posted up a video today which pieces together the weird world of Tearaway for the PlayStation Vita handheld game console.

Below are the details, to quote: Hopefully you all took the time to enjoy the new trailer for Media Molecule's forthcoming PS Vita adventure, Tearaway, last week. It's one of the loveliest titles inbound for any platform, bursting at the seams with invention, wit and creativity.

We stopped by Mm's Guildford HQ late last month to check up on progress, and grabbed director Rex Crowle for a quick chat about the game's unusual inspirations and influences. Read on to find out more about the eccentric themes that the team are pulling in an effort to make a truly unique video game...

Paper

First things first: paper. The entire game world is built out of the stuff, and you'll be manipulating it with your virtual fingers.

"I think it married together the main things I wanted to do with the game - of it just feeling very tactile and being something you really wanted to hold in your hands," explains Rex.

"And then we also wanted to provide players an interesting way of taking stuff from inside the game, outside the game, so they can build their own version of the experience and expand it out into...
