81w ago - ANZ Content Services Manager Nino Kalogeropoulos has made available a new Resistance: Burning Skies PS Vita video today dubbed Spread the Chimeran Virus below.
To quote: As the Chimeran virus prepares to unleash its formidable force on PlayStation Vita users later this month, Frank Simon, Senior Managing Producer at Sony Computer America - recently paid Australia a visit to talk all things Resistance: Burning Skies.
He took time out of his busy schedule to speak exclusively to us on camera about an exciting new social feature using the PlayStation Vita's social and location based service, 'near'.
"With new hardware comes an exciting new scope of uncompromised gameplay capabilities for the first FPS on PlayStation Vita" said Frank.
"Taking further advantage of the unique social connectivity of PlayStation Vita, while playing Resistance: Burning Skies in the dynamic new multiplayer mode, 'near' will enable players to become infected with the Chimeran virus for multiplayer bonuses - and 'gift' these to other PS Vita users".
Resistance Burning Skies launches across Europe on May 30th and UK June 1st.

To quote: Shooter fans everywhere are starting to get excited since we're now less than a month away from the May 29th release of Resistance: Burning Skies.
Two weeks ago, we introduced the world to Burning Skies' competitive multiplayer experience, and so far, we've been thrilled with how much fans and media have enjoyed playing it!
I know many of you are chomping at the bit to get out there and start taking the war against the Chimera online, so you'll be happy to hear that last week, Resistance: Burning Skies went gold.
To celebrate, we'd like to show you our new trailer, which focuses on the game's unique feature set.
Resistance: Burning Skies brings a lot of "firsts" to the PS Vita - First-ever dual-analog FPS control on a portable device, the first competitive multiplayer shooter experience on the PS Vita, and the first support for Party voice chat.
85w 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.
85w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has made available some new video footage today spotlighting multiplayer action in Resistance: Burning Skies for the PS Vita console.
To quote: If you're in the San Francisco Bay Area, come by our community meetup tonight to go hands-on with Resistance: Burning Skies in a kill-or-be-killed multiplayer tournament!
If it's true that a shooter is only as good as its weapons, Resistance: Burning Skies is shaping up to be a delight indeed.
Take the Mule, a new double-barreled shotgun that dishes out devastating buckshot blasts and launches explosive bolts via its over-barrel crossbow. Or the ever-popular Auger, whose projectiles hungrily chew through walls to seek out warm flesh.
But my favorite gun so far is the lethal Hunter rifle, a long-range Chimeran burst-fire weapon with the ability to deploy an attack drone that you can guide towards your multiplayer foes with taps on the front touchscreen - tres sophisticated!
Playing a series of Wifi multiplayer matches in Resistance: Burning Skies in New York City last week was a valuable reminder that shooting ultra-powerful weapons just feels...
86w ago - Nihilistic Software Designer D. Reed Monroe has revealed today on Sony's blog details on the Resistance: Burning Skies multiplayer game mode for the PS Vita console alongside a video below.

We know you've all been asking about multiplayer in Burning Skies, so please enjoy the first look at it in this new trailer!
When designing Resistance: Burning Skies, our goal was to bring a high-quality console experience to a handheld, and thanks to the power of the Vita, we've ended up with an unprecedented mobile FPS. Experience the dual analog sticks for precision aiming, touch screen interactivity for precise and quick secondary weapon fires, and portable online connectivity.
We've just showcased that game at an event in NYC, showing off some of the cool things we're doing with online:
