98w ago - Today Ubisoft PR Specialist Alex Monney has outlined the epic fantasy journey that Dungeon Hunter Alliance brings to PS Vita.
To quote: Over the next week, Ubisoft will be profiling our upcoming portfolio of launch titles for the PlayStation Vita.
All these titles will be available a week prior to launch, giving gamers the opportunity to build up their library prior to the launch of this highly anticipated PlayStation handheld or experience the games early if you are picking up the First Edition bundle on February 15th. Let's kick off the week by stepping into the fantasy genre.
But first, a question for my fellow PSP launch owners. How much fun was exploring the fantasy world of Untold Legends? I remember going over to my friend's house to sit side-by-side as we tackled different dungeons. With Dungeon Hunter Alliance, we're bringing back that feeling of exploring a fantasy universe along with your friends.
You may already be familiar with the PS3 version of the game, but soon you'll be able to take the experience with you, exploring the depths of Gothicus, facing off against evil creatures, and enhancing your character while you're on the go.
Dungeon Hunter Alliance will also enable PS Vita owners to team up with up to three friends locally and via WiFi –...
98w ago - Today Product Development Director Erich Waas has shared details on the online features in ModNation Racers: Road Trip for the PS Vita handheld console.
To quote: I wanted to give Mark Wilson a break this week so that I could talk about the robust online features in ModNation Racers: Road Trip.
The team here in San Diego created an impressive list of online functionality to take advantage of the WiFi/3G and GPS functionality. This game is intended to let you take advantage of your road trips--whether they're across the country, to another state or just traveling between home and work or school.
More importantly, ModNation Racers: Road Trip was designed to work around your schedule and let you compete with your friends whenever (and wherever) you want.
1. Competitive Localized Leaderboards
When a gamer who has opted to "Use Location Data" posts a lap time to the Leaderboards, that time is connected to their current location. Gamers can personalize their location names (i.e., My Home, My Work, Mark's House Where I Always Win, etc.) for easy reference. These times become part of the Local Leaderboards which gamers can use to compete in a fun arcade-style atmosphere.
Gamers can also select one of their saved locations and view other competitors'...
99w ago - Since reporting on his last flaw uncovered, PlayStation Vita hacker SKFU has found a few new vulnerabilities in Sony's PS Vita handheld gaming system.
To quote via wololo: Few hours ago, developer SKFU (known for his work on the PS3, but also recently for some investigations on the Vita security) posted a screenshot of his Vita showing some HTML in what is supposed to usually show official messages from Sony’s updates or packages.
Knowing SKFU's passion for everything network-related, I'm assuming he's doing some tests using some local DNS changes... or maybe he managed to put some of his own files in an official package? That would be exciting.
In previous tweets this week, he mentioned he found 2 potentially usable vulnerabilities on the Vita
VITA is back to life, since last tweet found 2 new possibile vulnerabilities. If it runs good, news in blog this evening!
That was, however, 2 days ago, and his blog wasn’t updated since then, so I’m assuming he ran into a few issues. (the “back to life” comment refers to the official...
99w ago - This weekend Spanish user homer49 has posted some videos on YouTube of PlayStation Vita allegedly running several games via Remote Play with PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) 3.55 and 3.41.
Titles demonstrated below include Red Dead Redemption, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Alice: Madness Returns, and Mortal Kombat supposedly running on the PS Vita handheld console.
To quote from PlayStationLifeStyle.net (linked above): Another element of intrigue also comes in at the 1:53 mark of the Batman: Arkham Asylum video, which appears to show how the PS3's controls are mapped to the Vita's inputs.
He did leave an unclear, cryptic message at the beginning of the Alice video in response to claims that his videos are fake, which makes no sense even when translated:
Is it remote play? Obviously, yes. Is it fake? Did you have a dream? That maybe it was so real you couldn't distinguish it from reality. And if you couldn't wake up from this dream, how would you know if you're not dreaming? One more time, Sony does not tell the truth.

99w ago - SCEA Product Marketing Manager Wilson Cheng is here with an introductory preview video of WipEout 2048 for the PlayStation Vita platform.
To quote: What you'll find below is a specially narrated cut of the cinematic intro to WipEout 2048 on PlayStation Vita.
Essentially, the movie's goal is to take you on a journey through the evolution of motorsport in Studio Liverpool's vision of the world, up until the point where Anti-Gravity technology has replaced modern day automotive technology and the first season of the Anti-Gravity Racing Championships has kicked off on the streets of Nova State City.
So, without further ado, sit back, press play and let Game Director Graeme Ankers, and Art Director Lee Carus, take you on a trip through time to the year 2048.
What did you think? Pretty cool, no? What's really interesting about WipEout 2048 and the direction the team at Studio Liverpool took with it, is that it takes place in the not too distant future and serves as a precursor to the events that take place in the original WipEout on PS one. And because of that it differs from WipEout experiences in the past.
Races are now multi-tiered - one minute you're barreling through the busy streets...
