93w ago - PopCap Games Director of Editorial and Social Media Jeff Green has announced that Plants vs Zombies for PS Vita is hitting PSN today with details below.
To quote: I know it's been over a year since we last spoke, and I am sorry about that. I've just been really busy and haven't had time to write, and I swear I have not been cheating on you with the Xbox blog or anything.
Anyway, now that the awkwardness is out of the way and we're friends again, I am here to tell you that I have another exciting announcement for you! Plants Vs Zombies is coming to your brand-spankin' new PS Vita today! Yay!
If you have never played our action-puzzler – that pits a horde of horticultural heroes against a mob of fetid, undead, brain-eating zombies - there is no better time than now. The PS Vita version is darn near the most perfect version of Plants Vs Zombies yet, taking advantage of the handheld console's touchscreen and internal motion sensors.
And if you have played it before, well, why not play it again?
Think of it as training for the real zombie apocalypse, which, not to be too much of a bummer here, could be coming any day now. Why be one of the unfortunate ones who end up in some undead guy's brain sandwich? Do the responsible thing and prepare now with our game!...
93w ago - Today Sony Associate Product Manager Ken Chan has announced that the Uncharted: Golden Abyss Treasure Map DLC Pack is slated to arrive this Wednesday for PlayStation Vita fans.
To quote: There are literally hundreds of treasures and artifacts in UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss that help tell the backstories of the game's locations and characters, and all are tied to Trophies.
To provide some extra incentive to explore every nook and cranny in the game, we added hidden paths throughout every level – finding everything will be a challenge!
But we also decided to create Treasure Maps for those who want all the game's Trophies but who aren't keen on exploration, or just want a hint now and then.
Since UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss is a portable game, it's not always easy to hop online and look up an FAQ. For that reason, we decided to offer DLC that integrates the Treasure Maps directly into Drake's Journal.
When you buy and install the maps, a new Treasure Map Icon appears on the Chapter page for each level. Tap the icon to bring up the map.
You'll be greeted with a full-screen image of the level showing all of its major landmarks and the locations of rubbings, photos, artifacts, treasures and Mysteries. And in case you were wondering, there are 34 maps...
I couldn't be more excited to finally share the news. For those not familiar with RCR, it's an over-the-top open-world crime game that combines everything you loved in classic games and mashes them up into a "toon town" of nostalgia and parody.
Steal cars, and then jump on pedestrians for big shiny coins. Collect power-ups and outrun the law while rampaging the city, shooting a light gun or swinging your bionic arm.
Fans of Grand Theft Auto will feel right at home with RCR, but the missions extend far beyond driving and shooting. They fuse classic gaming and modern mechanics to span virtually every genre, from stealth to platforming, adventure, rhythm and more- there are even underwater levels.
What I'm most proud of is that everything flows together using the same mechanics and visuals. Even missions inspired by '80s coin-op games seamlessly take place in the open-world.
It really is a massive game with something for everyone. It boasts a full story mode with over...
93w ago - Sony Manager James Gallagher has shared an interview today with CEO Andy House on gearing up for PlayStation Vita below!
To quote: The launch of PlayStation Vita is just two days away and hopefully your thumbs are twitching at the prospect of getting it into your hands and enjoying what we believe is the strongest launch line-up of games in PlayStation history.
One man that has had a part to play in that history is Andy House, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment. I recently spoke to him about life in Japan, the imminent launch of PS Vita and how we as a business are welcoming this proud new addition to the PlayStation family.
PlayStation.Blog: This is your second time working in Tokyo, how has the Japanese games market changed in the time you've been away?
Andy House, President and CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment: Well that intervening period was 15 years so things have changed dramatically. What's interesting, and the one thing that hasn't really changed, is that you still see these sales spikes of a system based on a single major game release, and I think that Japan is the most content-driven of the three major markets in that sense.
The other difference is that there seems to be a shift in Japanese gamers' habits - in the...
