12w ago - Sony Community Manager James Spafford shared details today on building your own papercraft world in Tearaway on PlayStation Vita.
To quote: Tearaway is a game set in a papery world, which means that if you wanted to, you could craft the entire game from paper in the real world - and that's exactly what we hope people will do!
To help you along your way, we've filled the game will collectible papercraft plans, which you can unlock as you journey through the world.
As you play, you'll come across creatures, plants or objects that appear to be drained of their colour. Taking a picture of them with your character's in-game camera restores their colour, and unlocks their plan.
Each plan has various different skins - blank ones, or colorful ones, so you can either make something that looks like it does in the game, or customise them to look completely different and unique to you.
The plans will be accessed on our community website, where you'll find everything you've unlocked so far, and from here you'll be able to print them out, make them, and fill your house with papercraft!
The journey doesn't end there though. Once you've made your papercraft model, you can upload a picture of your creation to the website to share it with the...
17w ago - A few days ago Sony released PS Vita System Software Update v2.60, and today The Z has shared a demonstration video of a PS Vita Hello World on PlayStation Vita Firmware 2.60 with details below.
To quote: PS Vita Firmware 2.60 was released yesterday by Sony, and, unsurprisingly, this firmware patches the latest VHBL exploit from Qwikrazor that we released for game Gamocracy: Legend of Robot on firmware 2.12 a few weeks ago.
But, and this will not be a surprise to those who follow this blog regularly, solutions still exist to run (PSP) homebrew on the latest PS Vita firmware 2.60. The Z proves it to us in the video below.
In the video, what we see is not a VHBL port but a “simple” hello world. This is the same code pretty much everyone has been using since the sparta exploit back in 2009, and, in case you’re wondering, we’re talking of course of a user mode exploit running inside the PSP emulator of the Vita. With the same possibilities as usual of seeing a port of VHBL coming one day to this exploit.
19w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa has shared some new details below today on Destiny of Spirits for PlayStation Vita proclaiming the world unites in battle.
To quote: In our last blog post, we provided an overview of Destiny of Spirits, a PS Vita game launching this year. Today, we're back to share more details about its social aspects.
Destiny of Spirits is a free-to-play, location-based, social strategy game. Players from around the world work cooperatively in turn-based, RPG style action to battle fierce Chaos spirits. The goal? Purify and save the world.
In Destiny of Spirits, friends will make your journey easier. Each day, The Destiny Engine - which is based on Western and Eastern astrology - will lead you to other players that the engine selects as compatible, based on a number of factors including birthday, name, and location.
You'll greet each day with new suggestions for allies across the world, and the more friends you have, the more benefits you can gain! The gameplay really opens up once you have friends. And working together with people across the world will affect how you strategically interact with Destiny of Spirits.
Spirits are unique to certain geographical locations around the globe. However, you can trade spirits...
19w ago - ATLUS PR Manager John Hardin shared some video footage today that delves deep inside the wild world of Zenozoik in Zeno Clash II which arrives on PS3 today!
To quote: Zeno Clash II is a first-person brawler developed by ACE Team, a development studio founded by a trio of game-developing brothers from Chile.
The world they created for Zeno Clash II is a wondrous, colorful world filled with some of the most outlandish and eye-catching creations in all of gaming.
To catch players up a bit of the game's background - in the original Zeno Clash, the protagonist Ghat, a relatively normal looking humanoid, was one of many children of Father-Mother, a 12-foot tall bird-like creature of indeterminate gender who lead a very large and diverse family.
Through circumstance, Ghat learns that Father-Mother created their unique family by abducting babies and then raising them, forcing him to fight his siblings escape alone with the dangerous secret.
In the end, Ghat gains the aid of a cryptic, omniscient being known simply as the Golem, and Father-Mother is imprisoned after a final battle that reveals the truth and causes the family to disband. All this leaves the Golem to move forward with his mysterious agenda.
