35w ago - Polytron Producer Marie-Christine Bourdua announced today that Fez is set to melt minds on PS4, PlayStation Vita and PS3 platforms!

To quote: Hi there! My name is Marie-Christine Bourdua, producer at Polytron, and I'm here today to announce that Fez is coming soon to PS Vita, PS3 and PS4. Making Fez happen has been such an incredible journey, and we are truly thrilled to see our game come to PlayStation platforms.

Fez development started six and a half years ago with Phil Fish's ideas and Renaud Bedard's programming skills. The Montreal-based studio was (and still is) very small, but very ambitious.

Only 100 days into development, we submitted a Fez prototype to the 2008 Independent Games Festival, and were awarded the Visual Arts award, which was a huge public awareness and morale boost. But we still had a whole game to make!

We failed to meet a million deadlines and had to overcome financial obstacles, but met amazing collaborators along the way, like the game's composer, Rich Vreeland (aka Disasterpeace), and outstanding pixel artist Paul Robertson.

The game was taking shape, had a unique atmosphere and aura of mystery that we knew would find fans. As we were wrapping up development, James Swirsky and Lisanne Pajot (makers of the Sundance-nominated...

Video: Velocity Sequel Announced for PS4 / PlayStation 4 & PS Vita

35w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden announced that a Velocity sequel dubbed Velocity 2X is coming for PS4 / PlayStation 4 and PS Vita today.

To quote: A Leap Beyond

Hi everyone, we are so excited and proud to announce Velocity 2X; the highly requested sequel to Velocity Ultra!

Story Teaser





Gameplay Teaser (Pre-Alpha Footage)

This video shows pre-alpha gameplay footage, which means it's nowhere near what we're aiming for visually. In fact, our technical director Hussain Sheikh was the lead visual effects programmer on Split/Second, so you can trust that he and the art team won't stop until Velocity 2X looks spectacular.





What the dock?!

When PlayStation asked if we'd like Velocity 2X announced during its Gamescom press conference, we couldn't pass up the opportunity. But the game just isn't ready for a full reveal yet, so we've only let you glimpse the platforming gameplay.

You can rest assured that the game features great mechanics that bridge the two formats perfectly; this isn't just...

35w ago - Telltale Games Community Lead Laura Perusco shared a video today announcing that The Walking Dead on PlayStation Vita is officially out tomorrow!

To quote: Antsy to get your hands on The Walking Dead for PS Vita? The wait is over!

Look out for PS Vita versions of all five episodes of The Walking Dead Season One, PLUS the special 400 Days DLC episode, in the PlayStation Store tomorrow (The bundle will also be available!).

This version is an awesome way to experience The Walking Dead, whether you're dipping your toe into the water for the first time, or looking to catch up on any episodes you might have missed. Even if you've already played through the whole season on PS3, there's an additional set of Trophies for playing the series on PS Vita.

We've even added some special features just for PS Vita: you can play with analog controls and face buttons, or get a little more intimate with the interaction by switching to touchscreen only.





Remember, fans of the series should keep those save files, because Season Two is expected to hit PS Vita later this year as well. Hope you're ready for the portable undead onslaught!
