64w ago - Today Game Designer Tam VooFoo at VooFoo Studios has announced that Hustle Kings is now available on the PS Vita handheld console.
To quote: Everyone here at VooFoo is proud that you can now play Hustle Kings on PlayStation Vita.
Once you've got your PS Vita all unwrapped, head to the PlayStation Store and you'll find Hustle Kings there for a superb £6.49. If you have pre-ordered a PS Vita then you can redeem your discount voucher to get Hustle Kings for just £1.49!
And if that wasn't tempting enough, you'll also get the PS3 version for free! That is a flabbergasting deal right there. The two versions are very different so you're almost getting two games for the price of one.
We have spent a lot of time and effort making Hustle Kings on PS Vita as great as possible. There are a lot of improvements from the PS3 version of Hustle Kings, along with a lot of entirely new content just for PS Vita.
We wanted to take full advantage of the Vita's unique inputs, and we think we've done so with a selection of control methods to cater for everyone from novice players right up to all you Hustle Kings pros.
If you want to bask in the PS Vita's touchscreen glory then it's really straightforward to...
65w ago - Sony President & CEO Jack Tretton has officially announced that their new PlayStation Vita next-generation handheld console is now available in the US with some video footage below!
To quote: Today is a very exciting day for PlayStation, all of our loyal fans and the entire gaming industry. The highly anticipated PlayStation Vita, our next generation handheld gaming device, is now officially available here in the US.
We celebrated this momentous occasion from coast to coast last night, kicking off at a midnight event in New York where an enthusiastic crowd from the PlayStation Nation came to get their PS Vita units.
When we set out to create PS Vita, we were determined to deliver the best handheld gaming experience the industry has ever seen, an experience that would rival current consoles and set the bar infinitely higher for those exploring the portable gaming space. In the year following its announcement, you've heard us throw around words like "revolutionary," "innovative," "game-changing" and more.
In the past few weeks, fans like yourselves and members of the press have begun to share in our sentiments. Early reviews have hailed PS Vita as "the best handheld ever made" and "the most advanced portable gaming system ever made." It's clear that PS Vita is making a phenomenal...
I couldn't be more excited to finally share the news. For those not familiar with RCR, it's an over-the-top open-world crime game that combines everything you loved in classic games and mashes them up into a "toon town" of nostalgia and parody.
Steal cars, and then jump on pedestrians for big shiny coins. Collect power-ups and outrun the law while rampaging the city, shooting a light gun or swinging your bionic arm.
Fans of Grand Theft Auto will feel right at home with RCR, but the missions extend far beyond driving and shooting. They fuse classic gaming and modern mechanics to span virtually every genre, from stealth to platforming, adventure, rhythm and more- there are even underwater levels.
What I'm most proud of is that everything flows together using the same mechanics and visuals. Even missions inspired by '80s coin-op games seamlessly take place in the open-world.
It really is a massive game with something for everyone. It boasts a full story mode with over...
65w ago - CEO Piotr Babieno of the Bloober Team has announced today that A-Men will March on PlayStation Vita at launch with details below.
To quote: True gaming is reborn on the PlayStation Vita with the launch of A-Men, a riddle within a retro game that will satisfy your cravings for tactical play.
With more than a hint of the old school style of logic, platforms and creatures, we think our new, highly addictive title is an unexpected launch in a market dominated by pump-action big titles.
Created by Bloober Team and honourably inspired by retro-cult classics Lemmings and Lost Vikings, the game gives you control of up to five army characters, each with their own personalities, skills and tools, whose mission is to round up their equally endearing enemies across a series of worlds and puzzles.
Highly tactical and completely addictive, the game is immediately easy to play and yet, like many classic games, it is hard to truly master. You'll definitely need a brain for this one, folks.
The gameplay takes the player on a journey through a series of different worlds and themes including Forest World, Seacoast World, Winterland World and Factory World. A-Men players use all of their...
66w ago - Today Lead Designer Kerim Borchaev has announced alongside a video trailer that Wheels of Destruction is coming to PlayStation Network.
To quote: Few things are as universal as the lust to drive fast and destroy expensive machinery. Everyone likes driving and crushing things, so when given the green light, Gelid Games leaped at the creation of Wheels of Destruction.
A lot of inspiring games came to mind, and we wanted to make our mark on the industry with an interpretation that is near and dear to us.
Before we got anywhere, we had to pick a platform, and going PSN exclusive was an obvious choice for us. Sony's platform has become much easier to develop on, and the fact that we're able to self-publish goes a long way in retaining our mindshare over the game. We wanted to know that every bit of perfection and every flaw was of our own design.
Once we had our platform in mind, we began searching for an engine. After trying as many that came through our doors, we found our place with the Unreal Engine, thanks to its great graphics and smooth asset production pipeline. We wanted to make the most out of the tools we had at our disposal.
Our ideas were grand, with levels five times larger than what production suggested we'd be able to accomplish. We knew that a fine...
