154w ago - Fun Bits Interactive Producer Chris Millar has shared a video trailer below for Escape Plan on the PS Vita handheld from Gamescom 2011 today.

To quote: Some of you may know me as one of the collaborative partners with SCEA Santa Monica Studios for the award-winning PlayStation Network exclusives, Fat Princess and Fat Princess: Fat Roles.

I'm not only here to introduce Fun Bits Interactive to you, but to also introduce Escape Plan, as one of the upcoming titles for the PlayStation Vita.

Escape Plan made its debut on Tuesday at the Sony Computer Entertainment Europe press conference and I have to express how thrilled I have been to see how well it has been received by colleagues and media alike throughout the week.





Placing bite-sized entertainment in the palm of your hands, Escape Plan features two hapless characters, Lil and Laarg, who have been captured and need your influence, skill and brainpower to escape from a dark labyrinth of irreverent puzzles and traps.

Escape Plan takes advantage of the PlayStation Vita's multi-touch display, rear touch panel and swipe interfaces. Players can swipe, squeeze, poke and slap these guys to interact and manipulate the environment and help Lil and Laarg survive each deadly...

154w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has made available some hands-on video footage today of Resistance: Burning Skies for PS Vita below.

To quote: Ever since the PS Vita was unveiled in January, the handheld's dual analog sticks have promised a proper first-person shooter experience on the go.

The reveal of Resistance: Burning Skies at PlayStation's gamescom press conference showed that the future of portable shooters will be bright from the outset.

Immediately after the conference ended, I met up with Rob Heubner from developer [Register or Login to view links], who detailed some of what we can expect from the Vita's first FPS foray. The next morning, Huebner and producer Frank Simon presented an extended play-by-play for international media.

Huebner said the studio's core mission was to create a "no-compromises experience with all the elements you'd expect from a Resistance game."





The Burning Skies demo fit neatly into the Resistance universe, but brought significant new features that evolved the game's interactivity. As mentioned in the press conference, you'll battle new Chimeran enemies with new weapons, all through the eyes of protagonist Tom Riley - a New York City fire fighter.
 

Video: WipEout 2048 Brings Birth of Anti-grav Racing to PS Vita

154w ago - SCEE's James Gallagher has shared a video interview today discussing how the upcoming WipEout 2048 game brings fans the birth of anti-gravity racing to PS Vita.

To quote: The WipEout series is synonymous with PlayStation hardware launches and so there's a warm feeling of familiarity to knowing that WipEout 2048 is coming to PlayStation Vita during the launch window.

The game focuses on the birth of Anti-grav racing and the Liverpool Studio team is keen to focus on how the architecture of the futuristic city shapes both look and gameplay. I caught up with Graeme Ankers and Stuart Tilley out in the sunshine between presentations.

It's fantastic to see a new WipEout game on its way, particularly one that is looking to take the series in a new direction. We already know that it will support cross platform play allowing Vita and PS3 players to go head-to-head online and I've just learned that the soundtrack - a vital ingredient in the WipEout DNA - features new remixes of Underworld and Leftfield tracks from the original game, as well as a new track from Deadmau5. Can't wait!




 

Video: Uncharted: Golden Abyss for PS Vita - Meet Marisa Chase

154w ago - Bend Studios Creative Director John Garvin has made available a video trailer today spotlighting Uncharted: Golden Abyss for PS Vita which introduces Marisa Chase.

To quote: We've just released a trailer that introduces a new and important character from our story. You met Jason Dante in our [Register or Login to view links] and learned a little bit about him: that he and Drake have known each other a long time, that they each know Sully, that Drake taught Dante a lot about treasure hunting, that Dante can be a little, well, greedy.

This time we're introducing Marisa Chase. But as she tells Drake at one point, call her "Chase," only her grandfather calls her "Marisa."

I don't want to give too much away at this point, but I can say this: once again Nathan Drake finds himself on a quest to solve a historical mystery which he hopes will lead to a fantastic treasure. The trick is staying alive long enough to get there. No easy task. And when Drake gets between Dante and Chase, events quickly spiral out of control.





We were lucky to get some really great talent to play our key characters. [Register or Login to view links], of course, reprises his role of Nathan Drake. Nolan...
