34w ago - XDev Studio Europe Producer Mark O'Connor has announced alongside a launch video trailer that Table Ice Hockey skates onto PlayStation Vita today.
Below are the details, to quote: Hey there everyone. I'm excited to be able to tell you about Table Ice Hockey, the latest 'AR Play' game for PS Vita.
It uses three of the AR Play Cards to transform and freeze your table top to make an ice hockey rink and arena. You start off with the basic frozen lake surface and then unlock bigger and more advanced stadiums the more you progress through the game.
We have designed the game to be really easy to pick up and play, with a great arcade-style look and feel. You take direct control of any one of five players out on the ice, putting together fast flowing moves and end-to-end game action.
The really cool thing about the AR aspect is the fact that you can play the game from any position, so you can move your PS Vita around to get as close to or as far away from the action as you like. Replay mode is another great way to enjoy this aspect, as you are in charge of the camera, viewing from whatever angle looks best.
Don't worry if you are new to the sport or want to brush up your skills, there is a tutorial option available to get you started. This is split up into 'Beginner'...

35w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has confirmed today that Persona 4 Golden is set for November 20th on the PlayStation Vita handheld gaming console.
To quote: Persona 4 Golden, Japan's BEST SELLING PS Vita game of ALL darn-tootin' time, finally has a North American release date: November 20, 2012, in stores and via PlayStation Store.
Did you hear that? That's the sound of millions of Vita owners screaming in joyous union. They know, as you might too (or will soon learn), that when it comes to a deep role-playing game experience with TONS of monsters to slay; Personas to collect and fuse; areas to explore; well-written characters with which to interact and develop bonds; and a terrific, highly memorable story, there is NO substitute.
A random short list of enhancements and additions (in no particular order) we've only lightly touched on:
• You can now sneak out at night when your uncle Dojima is out at work (which is frequent, as he's a veteran police detective). Every conversation and event discovered during this time - heck, even the music that plays - is all new. Moreover, many areas, like Shiroku store in the shopping district, serve a different purpose after dark.
• You can get night jobs, on top of the clubs you might join...

Since Sony's announcement at Gamescom of their awesome promotion pricing program for PlayStation All-Stars - where gamers who purchase the PlayStation 3 version also get to download the PS Vita version at no additional cost - it has been great to see gamers getting excited for the PS Vita version, so it's time Bluepoint gets into the blogging ring.
