From his blog, to quote: Less than 24hours after our public announcement of the existence of a vulnerability in the PSP game "Super Collapse 3″, Sony pulled out the game from their store, like they did for Motorstorm and Everybody's Tennis before.

Now comes the stressful moment for me: releasing the VHBL files publicly, and cross fingers that it works correctly on everybody's Vita.

It is worth mentioning that, as for our previous releases, members of the /talk forums knew about the game's name up to one week in advance, which gave most of them enough time to get the game without any issue.

I want once again to thank the community for being able to keep the secret, although it didn't go without issues. Way too many people talked about the release publicly on our forums,...
 

Resistance: Burning Skies Survival Mode Unveiled for PS Vita

50°
127w ago - Today Sony Senior Producer Frank Simon has unveiled the Survival Mode in Resistance: Burning Skies for PlayStation Vita.

To quote: Over the last couple of weeks we've been talking a lot about the highly anticipated multiplayer mode for Resistance: Burning Skies for PS Vita.

Supporting up to eight players over WiFi with a robust arsenal of powerful weapons and the precision and accuracy that come with dual-analog controls, Resistance: Burning Skies is sure to be the best FPS multiplayer experience available on a handheld.

We've already lifted the lid on the first two modes, Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch, and just last week at an event in San Francisco we revealed the title's last multiplayer mode, Survival Mode, an intense power struggle between humans and the gruesome Chimera.

Survival mode pits the players against each other in a race to the finish where only the strong survive. Here's how it works: in a battle of humans vs. Chimera, six players start as humans and two as Chimera.

As the Chimera players make a kils, their human victims are resurrected as Chimera so the balance slowly shifts. As the battle continues, the winner is the human player who lasts the longest in a match. We keep a timer running as you play so you can track your progress.
