110w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein is here with a hands on tour video demo of Sound Shapes for PS Vita from GDC 2012 below today.

To quote: It's Game Developers Conference time once again, and while headlines are a bit light, it's a great place to find game developers (of course).

We'll be bringing you videos, interviews, and conversations over the next several days, as well as a mega GDC Blogcast on Thursday.

The first game we got ahold of here at GDC is upcoming PS Vita musical platformer Sound Shapes. The game is best seen (and heard), so we present here Jason deGroot of Queasy Games.

In this video, deGroot takes you on a tour through a never-before-seen level, as well as sharing the in-game tutorial, so you know exactly what you'll be seeing when you load up Sound Shapes for the first time.

So when do you get to play Sound Shapes on your own personal Vita? The Queasy Games team doesn't yet have a release date, but they confirmed that a pre-release demo is in the making. We'll keep you posted.

Mass Effect 3 makes a landing as you can now download this epic game. Earth is ground zero in the war to save the galaxy- and how you wage that war is entirely up to you.

Groundbreaking interactive storytelling drives the heart-pounding action in which each decision you make could have devastating and deadly consequences.

It's a great week to have a PS3 and a PS Vita with Motorstorm RC being available in the PlayStation Store for both platforms. To make it even sweeter, thanks to our friends at Scion, you can download the PS Vita version free for a limited time!

With leaderboard challenges between friends and cross-play across both PS Vita and PS3, it's never been easier to beat your friends, no matter...
