Your Home screen will now have a Map app. Open this up, and you'll be able to see your positional information on a map. The map can be viewed with satellite imagery turned on and off. You can also search for walking and driving directions and view details about your current location.

132w ago - Square Enix Community Manager Robert Peeler has posted up a video today spotlighting the multiplayer aspects of Army Corps of Hell for PlayStation Vita below.

To quote: It's not too often you see a game from Square Enix employ the use of death metal guitar, screamo vocals, and copious amounts of blood.

Army Corps of Hell brings a new level of action to PS Vita. After being defeated in battle, the King of Hell is burned down to a meager corpse, stripped of his powers, and banished from his throne.

He uses the last of his strength to take command of a legion of weak-minded yet bloodthirsty goblins to reclaim his throne.

To annihilate the demons of Hell, you'll control an army of up to 100 goblin soldiers with unique classes and abilities. In true [Register or Login to view links] fashion, a new synthesis system lets you combine materials dropped by fallen foes to create new equipment for your troops.

133w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has revealed a release date for Aliens: Colonial Marines alongside a chat with Randy Pitchford of the prometheus possibilities on PlayStation 3.

To quote: The Alien films have always held enormous power over me, occupying the same sphere of significance that Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings do for many others.

So it's been with great interest and no small amount of hope that I've watched the development saga of Aliens: Colonial Marines. This Gearbox Software-developed first-person shooter promises to pick up where James Cameron's 1986 classic Aliens left off - an irresistible premise for any diehard fan of the series.

A recent trailer (watch it below) presented a convincing succession of sound and images, yet carried the sadface news of a new fall 2012 release date. What's an impatient Alien fan to do?
