Video: Urban Trial Freestyle Racing Soon to Hit PSN and PS Vita

200°
100w ago - Tate Interactive GM Wojtek Bilinski has announced today alongside a video trailer that Urban Trial Freestyle Racing is soon to hit both PSN and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: There are motorcycle arcade style games out there already, and although many are really fun (everybody remembers Elastomania!) most of them lack depth.

So with Urban Trial Freestyle, we decided to add high-quality graphics and a modern social experience to the gameplay to bring this genre to a whole new level.

We wanted Urban Trial Freestyle to provide players with the highest level of competition as possible, so we are including about 100 different leaderboards. Players can compare their best score and best time depending on two different game modes.

For example, in stunt mode, players can compete to be named "Best Stuntman" on every track. There are 20 tracks, and five kinds of stunts to perform on each track - and each one of them has its own leaderboard - all making Urban Trial Freestyle more unique and more competitive!

Arcade games are great for quick competitions so we also gave Time Attack mode a boost by storing the ghost of the best player on PlayStation Network so everyone can challenge him/her (it's possible to choose worldwide best player or best amongst your friends).
 

Video: Sony Announces EscapeVektor Launches on PS Vita Tuesday

50°
100w ago - Nnooo Creative Director Nic Watt has announced today on Sony's blog alongside a video trailer that EscapeVektor launches on the PS Vita handheld console this Tuesday.

Below are the details, to quote: We're happy to bring you information about escapeVektor, a new game coming to PlayStation Vita from Australian independent developer Nnooo.

Vektor is trapped inside your CPU and needs your help to escape! Each node (level) consists of a series of interconnected lines which form cells. These are claimed as Vektor moves along them.

Claiming all of the cells in a node unlocks the exit to the next node, bringing Vektor closer to his escape. Watch out because the CPU sets up obstacles and sends out its army to destroy him.

There are four main abilities to unlock and use in escapeVektor.

Detonate

This ability allows you to destroy enemies which get too close. If you can escape a node without detonating you'll earn a star! Getting stars on all the nodes is going to be tricky.

Boost

Boost allows you to travel much faster than normal for short periods of time.

Super Boost

This is a much faster version of boost which drains boost energy even quicker!!

FuturLab: Velocity Getting Remade for PS Vita as Velocity Ultra

50°
101w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden has confirmed today that Velocity is getting remade for PS Vita as Velocity Ultra with details below.

To quote: Hello again! It feels great to be back - especially now that we're able to reveal a project that so many people have asked for: a native PS Vita version of our multiple award-winning PS minis game Velocity!

It's called Velocity Ultra, and it features Trophies, online high scores and a completely overhauled visual style at native PS Vita resolution. We're reworking all the art in the game, so the cut scene stills have been recreated at a much higher standard than before.

We're also unifying the art style throughout the game by ditching pixel art in favor of the edgy cartoon style.

The dinky (and rather pathetic) Quarp Jet now looks less dinky (and rather bad-ass)

We're also adding lots of visual effects. Here's what Velocity Ultra looks like at the moment. Note that the graphics look considerably cleaner when running live on PS Vita's screen.

The dark shading at each side of the screen focuses the action whilst explosions illuminate the environment to create a more dramatic experience. The PS Vita is a lot more powerful than the PSP, so we're able to add these lighting effects whilst still running...
 

Start Your Morning With Wake-up Club for PS Vita Next Week

400°
101w ago - Today Sony Director of Product Planning and Platform Software Innovation Don Mesa has officially introduced the Wake Up Club for PS Vita owners.

To quote: Back in April, we unveiled a host of new applications coming to PS Vita, including Wake-up Club, a new interactive way to start your day with other PS Vita owners. Next Tuesday, the application will be available to download for free on the PS Vita PlayStation Store in North America!

Let's face it: getting up in the morning isn't something we usually look forward to, but Wake-up Club adds some social fun into the mix to make getting out of bed more bearable.

In addition to adding alarm clock functionality to PS Vita for the first time, including the ability to personalize your alarm tone and background theme, Wake-up Club matches 12 randomly selected players who set their alarm clock at the same time into a–you guessed it–wake-up club!

Wake Up Club for PS Vita

As soon as your alarm goes off, your avatar will begin bouncing around the PS Vita touchscreen. Tapping your avatar lets other players know you're now awake. Once in the virtual club room, you can see other players' avatars, as well as who's awake and who's still sleeping. Tapping the sleeping players' avatars will "cheer"...
 

Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable Invades PlayStation Vita Today

100°
102w ago - D3Publisher Assistant Producer Miki Takahashi has confirmed that Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable officially invades PlayStation Vita today!

Below are the details, to quote: I hope everyone had good holidays with your friends and families, but it's time to kick-start your gaming new year. Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable will be available for $39.99 in North America as a digital PS Vita download when the PSN update goes live later today.

Earth Defense Force 2017 first landed on US soil in 2007. With its addictive and exhilarating bug-squashing gameplay, the Japanese developer Sandlot succeeded in catching the attention of gamers.

Now, thanks to the high performance of PS Vita, we are able to bring the EDF world to the handheld console with many new additions including online co-op and versus modes, new missions, enemies and weapons, and a new playable character in Pale Wing.

The game has a total of 60 missions, including seven new missions. Each mission can be played on five difficulty levels; Easy, Normal, Hard, Hardest, and Inferno. Yes, you're reading this right. "Inferno" is harder than the "hardest"! At first, you might feel "Inferno" is insanely difficult, but don't worry.

The more difficult levels you play, the stronger weapons you'll get. By the time...
