138w ago - Today Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared some Gamescom 2011 footage of LittleBigPlanet for PS Vita dubbed a Touch of Creation below.

To quote: LittleBigPlanet and LBP2 enabled PS3 players to play, create and share custom-made levels and game modes online for all to enjoy.

Now, with the upcoming PS Vita game harnessing the handheld's plethora of inputs and sensors for playing and creating, Sackboy's new adventure will be the most accessible - and empowering - LittleBigPlanet yet.

We've seen glimpses of what PS Vita adds to Play starting at E3, when SCEE's Pete Smith demonstrated how the touch screen, gyroscopes, and rear touch panel helped Sackboy navigate levels in all-new ways.

At Gamescom, Smith was joined by Tarsier Studios designer Richard Meredith to show us some more Play possibilities and tools you'll use to Create new types of games.





Even the "Super Oval" shape of PS Vita is giving the development team novel new possibilities. Smith turned the Vita vertically to demonstrate a gravity-based game where players rapidly sort colored balls into the right chute - reminiscent of a touch-enabled version of PSN game Droplitz.

Next, the duo demonstrated an air hockey game...

SCEA CEO Kaz Hirai Hints at PSP2 Touch Controls

300°
173w ago - Today, in an interview with the New York Times Sony Computer Entertainment president and group CEO Kaz Hirai dropped some tantalizing hints about the PSP2.

When asked about what kind of controls the next PSP might have, Hirai gave the following answer, to quote:

"Depending on the game, there are ones where you can play perfectly well with a touch panel, but you can definitely play immersive games better with physical buttons and pads. I think there could be games where you're able to use both in combination."

Hirai was also asked about reports of Sony Ericsson's PSP Go-like gaming phone, which may -or may not- be PlayStation branded.

"We don't want gamers to be asking, what's the difference between that and a PSP," said Hirai, without confirming the device's existence. "We have to come up with a message that users will understand. It would have to be a product that keeps the PlayStation's strengths intact."

Finally, Hirai expressed his belief that the increased interest in casual games will actually benefit Sony, traditionally a maker of more hardcore games. "We're seeing people who never had an interest in games join the gaming population," he explained....

204w ago - Following up on our previous article, today VG247.com (linked above) has reported that Sony's upcoming PSP2 will feature a touch-screen and two cameras.

As part of their E3 2010 reveal, the following details have currently surfaced on the PlayStation Portable 2, to quote:

• Multiple British sources have confirmed that PSP2 NDAs have been in place at publishers and developers for many months.
• PSP2 has two cameras, one forward and one backward facing.
• It has a touch-screen, but apparently it has retained the trademark physical PlayStation buttons.
• UK sources were previously working towards a "2010″ release. This is now "2011″.
