Video: Hands-On: Mortal Kombat for PlayStation Vita Preview

350°
135w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman shared a hands-on video preview today of Mortal Kombat for the PlayStation Vita handheld.

To quote: I've got good news, and I've got good news. First, the good news: Based on my recent hands-on play sessions, Mortal Kombat on PS Vita plays identically to its PS3 counterpart.

That means fluid 60 frames-per-second fighting, lush presentation, and every bit of content from the console version. That includes the critically acclaimed Story mode, a full character roster, the Krypt, the works.

I also tried out a series of local (non-internet) Wifi multiplayer matches, and I'm happy to report that the game felt smooth and responsive with no perceptible lag. If you're skeptical, watch the video above to see local multiplayer - and my hairy, hairy paws - in action.

Now for the good news: The PS Vita version adds an ambitious array of extra content, starting with every piece of DLC ever released on PS3. That means you'll be able to play as Freddy Krueger, Kenshi, Rain, and Skarlet from day one, and select MK1 and MK2 retro-styled costumes to drape over your male and female ninja characters.





The Vita version sweetens the pot with 15 more exclusive costumes,...

135w ago - NIS America PR / Marketing Coordinator Nao Zook has announced today that Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention will be hitting the PS Vita this April and will be the handheld console's first RPG release.

To quote: Today, I would like to share our brand new trailer for Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention for the PlayStation Vita system. Disgaea 3 for the PS Vita will be released in April.

We are really excited about Disgaea 3 coming out on the PS Vita over here. Yes, it is a port of the PlayStation 3 version, but it will be equipped with new character stories, new systems, new attack levels, new bosses, and will include all the DLC that was released for the PS3 version, all on one card.

So even if you have already played Disgaea 3 on the PS3 system, you'll have something new to experience with this PS Vita version!

Of course, there will be some PS Vita specific systems integrated into the game, as well. For example, there is a system called "Honor Quotient," which uses the GPS to track how far you've traveled while playing the game. The more you travel, the higher your Honor Quotient will rise (you'll be able to increase your Honor Quotient by winning battles, increasing your total play time, and by other means as well).

With a high Honor Quotient, you will be able...
