66w ago - Sony European Product Manager Mayumi Donovan has announced that beginning today PS Vita owners can download the free PlayStation Vita Treasure Park application alongside a video of it in action below!
To quote: Hi everyone. I hope you're in the mood to hunt for some hidden gaming booty, because I'm pleased to announce that Treasure Park for PlayStation Vita is out today.
Treasure Park is a fun puzzle app to while away the hours and it's exclusively available for PS Vita. The premise is simple - create your own puzzle sheet and hide your treasure and medals.
Friends will be sniffing around hunting for treasure, so make sure you plant some well-placed bombs to trap them. With the touchscreen it's quick and easy to set up and get going.
Once you've created your puzzle sheet, you can share it with your fellow fortune hunters using the "near" app or find other puzzles to play and collect treasures. The more you play, the better chance you'll have at getting a high score. You can also team up with your friends to earn big scores. See the trailer below for a closer look.

"OK Dylan, what's the patch got?" - Says the snarky gamer from the back corner of the internet. Tons of new stuff! There are player-requested features, an increased level cap, bug-fixes, and of course two new FREE maps on the planet of Cypress!
