95w ago - Sony Director of Product Planning & Platform Software Innovation Don Mesa has confirmed some new PS Vita applications are incoming this Spring, including Friend Network and Imaginstruments.

To quote: We've had a slew of exceptional new applications hit PS Vita recently, like the otherworldly simulator Ecolibrium, Wake-up Club, and plenty of others. Today, we wanted to unveil two great new applications you'll soon be enjoying on PS Vita.

Friend Network, already a huge hit in Japan and other territories in Asia, is a unique social application for PS Vita that allows you to interact with friends and meet new people in a whole new way.

Guided by PlayStation mascot mainstay Toro, the app lets PS Vita owners visualize their network of friends and gaming buddies through the use of avatars in a colorful environment, and through growing their friends list, players can grow their own unique town space within Friend Network.

With the ultimate goal of reaching 100 friends within Friend Network, lobbies are available where players can meet new friends and exchange virtual "business cards." These cards contain information that players can use to get to know others within Friend Network.

Additionally, Friend Network comes fully integrated with your favorite social networks....

To quote: [Register or Login to view links] is a cooperative puzzle-platformer with a gravity twist that will launch on PSN next spring.

In the earliest stages of development, the game was called Brothers. Looking back at that now, it means a lot more than I thought it did.
