Madden NFL 13 Hits PS Vita August 28, Snap Up the Demo Tomorrow

50°
101w ago - Madden NFL Arcade Designer Danny Doeberling has confirmed today that Madden NFL 13 hits PS Vita on August 28th, and that fans can snap up the demo tomorrow!

To quote: My name is Danny Doeberling, and I'm a Designer on Madden NFL 13 for PS Vita. The game is launching on August 28th, but I wanted to let you know how you can get your hands on the action early with the demo, starting August 14th.

When designing Madden for PS Vita, the Dev Team set the goal of making the most complete Madden handheld experience to date, and without a doubt I feel we delivered it.

Madden NFL 13 is visually stunning on PS Vita - seeing all the superstars decked out in their brand new NFL uniforms in HD on that gorgeous OLED screen really gets you excited for football season to start.

The game is built from the Gen 3 engine, so if you are familiar with PlayStation 3, you will feel right at home here.

Our favorite part of development on this title was incorporating PS Vita's unique features. I'll just say this: you don't know how much you need the touch screen until you get it in your hands - you can use your finger to freely draw receivers' routes!

We titled this feature Call Your Shots. It's quick, it's fun, and it will make you forget about the old way of individually...
 

Sony Announces John Cleese is the Voice of PS Vita's Smart As

101w ago - Sony EX-Dev Producer Ian Pickles has announced today that John Cleese is the voice of PS Vita's Smart As with details below.

To quote: My name is Ian Pickles and I am the Producer from XDev Studio Europe working on PlayStation Vita's all-new social brain training experience, Smart As.

I'm here with some exciting news to share. I am delighted to confirm that John Cleese, the English actor, comedian, writer and film producer is injecting his unique personality and sophisticated sense of humor into the game as the voice of Smart As.

Best known for his hilarious antics as a member of the Monty Python comedy troupe, it's great to be able to confirm the comedy legend's participation in the game.

His instantly recognizable voice and distinctive style deliver intelligent and witty narration during the game, always encouraging and sometimes teasing you to improve every time you play.

Regardless of how smart you are, John's creative and comedic dialogue will keep you hooked as you play to improve your Brain Power score and pursue your goal to outsmart the world.

The decision to approach John to work on the game came about a couple of months ago. We were incredibly happy with the game - the looks, presentation and gameplay are second to none, but we felt...

Sony Goes Hands-On with Persona 4 Golden for PlayStation Vita

250°
102w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein went hands-on today with Persona 4 Golden for the PlayStation Vita video game portable console.

To quote: There's never been a better time to be a fan of the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona series.

Persona 4 Arena has just arrived on our shores this week, taking the venerable RPG franchise into 2D fighting game territory (and successfully so).

This fall, one of the PS2′s most highly regarded games is coming to PS Vita with Persona 4 Golden. Even if you're new to the series, as I am, there's never been a better time to get into it.

As a recent inductee into the Persona universe (via Persona 3 Portable on PS Vita), I eagerly took up [Register or Login to view links] on the opportunity to sample a work-in-progress edition of Persona 4 Golden last week.

The first thing you're likely to notice about P4G is how good this game looks. It's not surprising that a PS Vita game would look better than a PS2 or PSP game, but the sharpness and contrast of the visuals on "dat screen" are dramatically better than anything the series has seen.

While a lot of the static character art isn't new (especially that of the Personae, which are largely the same as in P3), the crispness of the screen had me thinking...
 

Ragnarok Odyssey on PS Vita is a Giant-Smashing Good Time

50°
102w ago - XSeed Games Production Assistant Brittany Avery has shared an update on Ragnarok Odyssey for the PlayStation Vita handheld console today.

To quote: I've been playing Ragnarok Odyssey for PS Vita. In English.

Are you ready to stand taller than giants? You should be, because that's what this game is all about.

One day, a passage along the Millennium Peaks gives humans access to the long-sealed off Sundered Land, and because they're really lucky, it's filled to the brim with mighty beasts that seem to want nothing more than to destroy mankind's territory - Trogdor-style.

Only they're not dragons with handsomely chiseled arms, they're ugly Giants. Giants who like to smash things.

That's where you come in. You're a mercenary on the front lines, and once you choose your sex, job class, and how cute you are (by way of hair style/color, skin color and voice type), you're ready to drop in on Fort Farthest like a bat out of hell.

And don't worry, you're only restricted to your default job class for a short time - you'll soon be able to go from hacking and slashing as a Sword Warrior to creating miniature explosions as a Mage with a mere wardrobe change.

And even that won't be a limitation soon enough, because I'm sure some of you would prefer...
