108w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska has announced today that Foosball 2012 will be hitting both PS3 and PS Vita, and will include PS Move and Cross Play support!

To quote: Hi everybody! This is Jakub from Grip Games, the folks who brought you The Impossible Game, MiniSquadron and One Epic Game. We are back to present you our newest creation - Foosball 2012 for PS3 and PS Vita.

As you have probably guessed - it is a table football ("foosball") game. The very first one for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, so we made sure that we packed it up with lots of features and game modes, like various kinds of tables (American style, European style), customizations, ball types and trick shots to keep you entertained and experimenting for hours.

The World Tour single-player mode will let you travel across the globe and challenge AI opponents in nearly 30 locations. More social players can look forward to a local multiplayer for up to four and online multiplayer, where you can match against the rest of the world and rank up to become the table football champion.





PlayStation Move is also supported on PS3. If you own this magic wand, you can control Foosball 2012 exactly like you would control a real table football, with 1:1 movement...
 

Video: PS Vita PSP HEN Demo, Kernel Access Through Exploit

1000°
109w ago - Following up on the PSP SaveGame Exploit on PS Vita from a few days ago, today PlayStation Vita hacker wololo reports that Davee has obtained PSP Kernel access on PS Vita through another exploit with a PS Vita PSP HEN demo video and details below!

To quote: Famous PSP dev Davee just posted a YouTube video showing him running PSP homebrews on a Vita. I initially thought “well, not a big surprise, he’s running his own port of VHBL to some random exploited game”, but it turns out this is much more interesting than that, as he managed to get a PSP Kernel exploit running on the PSP Emulator.

Davee had hinted a few days ago on twitter that he had PSP User mode access, but it’s a surprise to see Kernel mode today. What this means to the end user is full homebrew compatibility (unlike VHBL which is hit and miss), and potentially down the road, PSP iso loaders (the video actually shows a psp iso running). Check his video below:





The video shows a minimalist interface called “PRX Loader” which seems to be used to run the homebrews. No word...

Video: First Look at Resistance: Burning Skies PS Vita Story Trailer

50°
109w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America Associate Product Marketing Manager Derek Osgood has made available a first look video trailer today of the story in Resistance: Burning Skies for the PS Vita handheld console!

To quote: With Resistance: Burning Skies marching steadily towards its May 29th release date on PS Vita, you may have been wondering who Tom Riley is and where his story fits into the grand scheme of the Resistance universe.

Today we're clearing up that question with a new story trailer you can watch right now!

Resistance: Burning Skies is, at its core, a story about an everyday hero becoming a legend. On August 15th, 1951, New York City fireman Tom Riley is called away during a seemingly routine fire call and finds himself thrust into the midst of the brutal Chimeran invasion (Resistance 2 fans: this parallels the period when Nathan Hale returns from Europe).

Riley is possessed with a singular determination to find his wife and child, but along the way he'll be embroiled in a far larger conflict that will determine the fate of New York and leave him a key inspirational hero of the Resistance.





For those of you watching closely, there were a couple other little tidbits revealed...
