To quote via Andriasang.com (linked above): "Sony will be giving PlayStation Vita its first major firmware update on February 8. The system's version 1.6 update adds two major features.

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.

The system's photo app will be updated with the ability to take videos. The app is currently limited to static photos. As a smaller change, the Home button will now flash blue when you have the Vita hooked up to power.

Separate from the system's firmware, Sony will release a MAC OS version of its Content Management Assistant...

Tales From Space: About a Blob New Co-op Map Pack Hits PSN

50°
173w ago - DrinkBox Studios CTO & Designer Chris Harvey has announced today news of a new Tales From Space: About a Blob Co-op Map Pack hitting PSN soon.

To quote: Greetings once again, opaque and bipedal earthlings! It's been awhile since I, Orange Blob, have been in touch. You may remember me from my PSN game Tales from Space: About a Blob, where I grew and consumed your world and all its inhabitants.

I've been away recently, you see, visiting a strange and unusual planet in a not-too-distant solar system. I was accompanied by my good friend Green Blob. It's nice to travel with friends, although Green Blob sometimes snores.

Exploring an alien planet is not for the faint of heart. Throughout our adventures, we were often confronted by tricky alien contraptions that required BOTH of us to get past. All this puzzle solving leaves a Blob feeling pretty hungry. Luckily, we were able to sample some local delicacies, i.e. the alien life-forms. They taste exactly like chicken.

Once again, the folks over at [Register or Login to view links] have been kind enough to re-create our adventures in video-game form. If you have a friend nearby, toss them a controller and see if you can put your brains together to solve these wacky alien puzzles!

Video: Zipper Unveils SOCOM 4: PS3 Multiplayer Map First Looks

186w ago - Zipper Interactive Senior Community Manager Jeremy Dunham has shared some new video footage today of the SOCOM 4: PS3 Multiplayer Map.

To quote: Today's the day that players who nabbed SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs Multiplayer Beta vouchers in copies of Killzone 3 or at PAX East 2011 can now redeem their early access codes!

In celebration, we wanted to give you a sneak peek at two SOCOM 4 multiplayer maps that haven't really been seen outside of Zipper Interactive yet - Von Heine Express and Cesspool!

Von Heine Express was actually one of the last MP maps we finished; the idea behind it was to create an environment that captured the spirit of our classic SOCOM II map, Fox Hunt, but was built on the themes of SOCOM 4 and made for great sniping scenarios.

Set on the coast of Southeast Asia in a makeshift military base that comes complete abandoned train cars, Von Heine Express is a favorite here at Zipper and has only been seen publicly once - at [Register or Login to view links] where it was part of that event's SOCOM 4 Championship Tournament. Check out the video below for a flythrough!





Another map that we're happy to unveil is Cesspool. Cesspool was one of the earliest MP maps developed...
