XSeed Announces Ys: Memories of Celceta is Out Today for PS Vita

50°
40w ago - XSeed Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz announced today that Ys: Memories of Celceta is out today for PS Vita.

To quote: It's here! Ys: Memories of Celceta, the latest installment in Nihon Falcom's storied Ys series, is out today for PS Vita. It's $39.99 for the digital or physical standard edition, and $59.99 for the swanky Silver Anniversary Edition.

The Silver Edition comes with a 130-page "Travel Journal" full of art, maps, and strategies, a cloth map depicting the lands of Celceta, a three CD compilation of original and arranged music, and a logo-emblazoned compass.

Last time on the blog, I spoke of Celceta's myriad features, its basic premise, and the history of the many games called "Ys IV," but one question I kept hearing was, "Is this a good place to start if I've never played an Ys game before?"

And while I did my best to reassure you all that you'll be just fine starting your adventure here in Celceta, I thought it might be prudent to go into a little more detail on what the series is, how it's changed over the years, and just how accessible its games really are.

So... let's start at the beginning, shall we?

The Ys series debuted in 1987 on various Japanese computer systems, and was an instant hit due to its fast-paced action, its...
 

Sony Announces Soul Sacrifice Free for PlayStation Plus Members

100°
40w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer announced today that Soul Sacrifice is free for PlayStation Plus members.

To quote: One of the most critically acclaimed PS Vita titles, Soul Sacrifice, is now available in the Instant Game Collection.

Created by Keiji Inafune, best known for his work on the Mega Man franchise, this action RPG pits you against an evil sorcerer. The question is, how are you going to defeat him when you're locked up in a fleshy cage? A talking book named Librom (it reminds me of the spell book in Hocus Pocus) is the answer.

Librom will transport you back to past events, also known as Phantom Quests, so you can train and develop your power. The game really shines with its "save or sacrifice" combat mechanics, where you'll need to make key decisions about what you need most (i.e. more health or more magic), or choose to unleash a devastating black rite spell by destroying part of your body.

The best way to grasp the game is to try it out, so get to downloading when this becomes free for PS Plus members tomorrow!

You can take advantage of all these PS Plus benefits after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 11/26.

Soul Sacrifice (PS Vita)

What would you sacrifice for ultimate power? Prepare yourself...

42w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden announced today that Velocity Ultra is out today on PlayStation 3.

To quote: Hello folks! I'm excited to say that the multiple award-winning Velocity Ultra is available today on the mighty PlayStation 3 for just $7.49 $9.99!

At full 1080p 60fps, it's a hypnotic experience playing on a big TV, and gives the awesome soundtrack produced by [Register or Login to view links] of Killzone fame a chance to shine too!

Developed and published by the talented team at Curve Studios, Velocity Ultra on PS3 is a perfect conversion that feels great on DualShock 3.

Me confirming that the PS3 version is indeed awesome. What, you've never heard of it?

Those of you not familiar with Velocity Ultra should know that it combines shoot 'em-up action, speed runs and cunning spatial puzzles in a way never seen before, and this combination of clever mechanics and no nonsense fun delighted pretty much everyone that came into contact with it on PS Vita.

So we're incredibly excited that Velocity Ultra is now a full PS3 title which includes perhaps (actually, definitely) the best titled platinum trophy ever: 'Show Thumb Respect.'

Teleporting ahead... With a host of 9/10 review scores from the likes of Edge Magazine...
 

Sony Announces Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus Out Today on PS3

42w ago - Insomniac Games Community Lead James Stevenson announced today that Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus is out today on PS3.

To quote: Hey everyone, It's been an incredible seven years for us here at Insomniac on the PlayStation 3. And today celebrates that heritage with the release of our 10th game for the platform: Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus.

The epilogue to our acclaimed Ratchet & Clank Future saga, this game is a love-letter to our fans. It gets back to the classic story-based Ratchet & Clank adventure, with brand new weapons, villain, planets, and an all-new story.

It's a compact Ratchet adventure you can download via PSN or buy on blu-ray disc for a great price of $29.99 (MSRP). On top of that, all copies of the game come with an entitlement for a free download of Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest For Booty, so there's even more value!

But don't take my word for it. We've already gotten a ton of great reviews on the game. And after all of that, if you're still on the fence, perhaps this awesome launch trailer will give you a push over the edge, and sway you to have one more go with Ratchet on your PS3.





We're really excited to close out Ratchet's PS3 era with a game that we made for...
