101w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez is here with the new Sony PS3 and PSN releases for the upcoming week today, as follows:

On PS3 this week, the war on planet Cybertron rages on in this second chapter of the phenomenally successful action game series. Transformers: Fall of Cybertron takes fans through the final, darkest hours of the civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons as they fight for control of their dying planet, ultimately leading to their storied exodus from home.

On PSN, Retro/Grade is an innovative game that fuses the white knuckle thrills and over the top visuals of a shooter with the broad appeal of a rhythm game.

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater both receive the full digital treatment and arrive on PSN for PS3 and PS Vita. Enjoy this week's The Drop.

PlayStation 3

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron - With the stakes higher and scale bigger than ever, fans will control an unprecedented assortment of Transformers characters armed with authentic transformation designed around their unique abilities, including Grimlock's nearly indestructible T-Rex form and the legendary Combaticons forming into the colossal Bruticus.

Below are the details, to quote: The kind of loving Persona 4 Golden can offer your PS Vita, however- apart from it being one of the best RPGs ever made, delivering 100+ hours of addictive goodness, et cetera- might be something you'll want to share with the world.

We're incredibly excited- nay, elated--NO WAIT, WE'RE EXCITALATED- to reveal the Persona 4 Golden Vita Skin, a special FREE gift for fans who pre-order P4G at a participating retailer while very limited supplies last.

SMARMY PR MODE ENGAGED

"The skin adorns your Vita with the stylish, vibrant aesthetics of Persona 4 while protecting it from small scratches and dust. It is easy to apply and won't leave any residue when removed.

Also included are 8 exclusive matching wallpapers, each featuring a main character from P4G and all designed to perfectly coordinate with the protective skin.

Manufactured in Japan by Dezaegg, this Vita skin is the same one made available to Japanese fans, down to the use of the original title for the game, Persona 4: The Golden. The P4G Vita Skin will not be made available for individual sale in North...
 

Video: Gamescom Hands-on: Assassin's Creed III Liberation PS Vita

102w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a hands-on look at Assassin's Creed III Liberation for PS Vita from Gamescom 2012 today.

To quote: Here at gamescom 2012, [Register or Login to view links] finally granted hands-on access to its newest assassin, Aveline, star of Assassin's Creed III Liberation.

In this video, story writer Richard Farrese walks us through some of the new features found in PS Vita's first entry in the series.

Liberation takes full advantage of the new Assassin's Creed III game engine and its simplified control scheme. Gone are the days of leaning on the shoulder button and playing defense during encounters.

Press Square for melee attacks, hold and release Triangle to aim and fire ranged weapons, Circle counters, X is used for block-breakers and other moves. It's a bit of an adjustment to begin thinking offense first in an Assassin's Creed game, but ultimately it's likely to be seen as an improvement.

Ubisoft is taking advantage of PS Vita's touchscreen in logical ways: tapping the screen brings up a split weapon wheel where you can select melee weapons (machete, hidden blades) on the left and ranged weapons (blowgun, whip) on the right.

102w ago - Sony Community Coordinator Steven Isbell has made available some fresh videos from Gamescom 2012 today recapping the LittleBigPlanet Karting PS3 and LittleBigPlanet PS Vita news below.

To quote: Gamescom 2012 is currently in progress and LittleBigPlanet is the height of popularity there, thanks to our brand new titles LittleBigPlanet PS Vita and LittleBigPlanet Karting.

To celebrate the occasion, we have a few treats for you!
LittleBigPlanet DLC Costume Cross-Compatibility!

Customization is a BIG part of LittleBigPlanet. Being able to modify your Sackboy or Sackgirl is a way for players to personalize their experience, while also bringing a variety of different franchises and entertainment properties into the LBP universe.

We recognize this and have decided that we can't ask all you LittleBigPlaneteers to fully enjoy the upcoming LittleBigPlanet PS Vita and LittleBigPlanet Karting without an amazing assortment of costumes at your disposal.

So, we're going to let you bring the costumes that you bought for LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2 along with you... at no extra cost!

Not only that, but for any new costumes that take your fancy, you will only ever need to purchase the costume once and you'll have access to it across LittleBigPlanet...
 

Video: Hands On at Gamescom 2012: Zen Pinball 2 on PS Vita

50°
102w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a video today going hands on with Zen Pinball 2 for PS Vita at Gamescom 2012.

To quote: If you're a regular PlayStation Blogcast listener, you're probably sick to death of hearing about how much we've been playing and enjoying The Pinball Arcade on PS3 and PS Vita.

Farsight's pinball simulator faithfully recreates the experience of playing some of pinball's greatest tables, many of which are quite difficult to find in the real world.

Zen Studios has taken a different tack since debuting on PS3 (via PSN) in 2009 - the tables featured in Zen Pinball don't exist in some decrepit arcade or collector's garage. These fanciful pinball experiences don't - and simply couldn't - exist in real life.

Now Zen is upgrading the "platform" for these tables - meaning the physics engine, visuals, and social media experience - with Zen Pinball 2, coming to both PS3 and PS Vita for free next month.





I was lucky enough to be sharing a flight out to Cologne for gamescom with someone from the Zen PR team, who handed me a PS Vita loaded with a nearly complete version of the game.

With The Pinball Arcade fresh in my mind, I slipped back into...
