Video: Introducing Snapshot, Coming to PS Vita and PS3 This Fall

99w ago - Retro Affect Software Neurosurgeon David Carrigg has officially announced today that Snapshot is coming to PS Vita and PS3 this Fall alongside a video introducing the video game posted below.

To quote: I'm proud to announce that Snapshot, our 2D puzzle platformer, is coming to PS Vita and PS3 (with cross-platform saves) this fall.

In Snapshot, you control a robot named Pic. Pic carries a high-tech camera that can "capture" and remove objects and parts of the environment. You can then paste the picture back into the world causing all the objects to come tumbling back out. If you're looking for a new puzzle game with a twist, keep reading!

The game begins with Pic powering on for the first time in a dusty abandoned laboratory. Uncertain about his purpose and why he was built, he wanders into the forest that surrounds the laboratory.

This is where you'll first start to use your camera to take photographs of objects. The first chapter of the game will hit you with a series of puzzles involving moving objects around within the levels, and it's easier than you think.

If you want to reposition a box, simply snap a photo to capture it, then paste the picture back into the world and watch the box fall back out of it.

99w ago - CEO James Spahn has announced that social video service Nico Nico is coming to PS Vita today with a video and details available below.

To quote: Nico Nico is a social video networking service that allows you to view and overlay time stamped comments on live or uploaded videos.

I'm excited to announce that a PS Vita dedicated Nico Nico application will be available on PlayStation Store starting today. With more than 27 million subscribers worldwide, Nico Nico consistently ranks within the top 15 most-viewed sites in Japan, so we're looking forward to expanding the Nico Nico community by bringing this app to PS Vita owners in North America.

With June 4th just around the corner, you'll want to keep up with all of the exciting news and games that will be unveiled at this year's PlayStation E3 2012 press conference.





Nico Nico will be the only service that enables you to watch a beta livestream of the PlayStation press conference directly on your PS Vita. Personally, I can't think of a better way to watch all of the latest and greatest from PlayStation at E3 on the go than on your 5" OLED screen.

Future updates to the app will allow you to broadcast directly...
